Elaine, a beautiful young witch, is determined to find a man to love her. In her gothic Victorian apartment she makes spells and potions, and then picks up men and seduces them. When she finally meets the man of her dreams, her desperation to be loved will drive her to the brink of insanity and murder.
Anna Biller pays a loving and wickedly smart tribute to the Technicolor melodramas, erotica and horror from the ’60s and ’70s. She offers a stylish, fantastical examination of gender and female desire.
Filmography: Viva (2007).

Midnight Madness films might contain scenes that some viewers might find difficult to watch.


The fun goes on after the movie: have a beer or a glass of wine at the Sleek (with proof of purchase and ID - no drinks served to under 18s).
