45 Best Witch Movies of All Time

Even though there are a couple of months of summer left, once kids start heading back to school, it just starts to feel like fall.

Although true fall isn’t quite here, this is the time of year when we start drinking pumpkin spice lattes, burning fall-scented candles and getting ready for my personal favorite holiday, Halloween. And with Halloween comes Halloween movies.

There are all kinds of great ghost, vampire and zombie movies out there to get you in the spirit, but somehow, witch movies just seem more fall-like and Halloweeny than all the rest. It doesn’t matter if you like your witches green and warty or svelte and sensual. Either way, witches are a staple of the late-summer and fall months.

Sometimes, though, finding a good witch movie that isn’t too “kiddie” can be hard. Read on to find out our picks for the absolute best adult witch movies of all time.

NOTE: Some of these movies can be pretty scary – so if you are looking for Kid friendly witch movies – click that link you just passed over.
