Jesus Got a Gun in First Trailer for Álex de la Iglesia's WITCHING AND BITCHING
It seems rather appropriate that on the day I'm redrafting my thesis chapter on The Day of the Beast, the first trailer for mad maverick Álex de la Iglesia's new film should be released. I've always been pretty impressed at how de la Iglesia has continued to carve his own path, only lightly dipping his toe in more commercial fare once or twice, but pretty much sticking to his metaphorical guns on insanity, violence, and strong political commentary in his work. The trailer for Witching and Bitching looks like delightful, bloody and outrageous fun.

Hugo Silva and Mario Casas (both currently very hot properties in the Spanish film market) play two hapless thieves, whose plan to rob a jewellery store unravels quickly when they have to bring one of their's son along, the ex-wife borrows the getaway car, they end up headed to France for Eurodisney instead of the planned Morocco, and they run into a coven of witches in the Basque country. Also starring Carmen Maura and Carolina Bang, along with other de la Iglesia regulars, the film looks loud, angry, wild, bloody, sexy and brutal. Pretty much the standard for de la Iglesia.

I've been in the bag for de la Iglesia since I saw Accion Mutante when I was a teenager and he just keeps getting better! This trailer makes me incredibly happy. Also, I want to read that thesis chapter ;)

another satanic movie that supports the agendas of the demons and enemies.

Saw Accion Mutante at the Toronto Film Festival and loved it. Have yet to see another one of his films. This looks great, though I hear his output has been mixed.

Definitely see The Last Circus and The Day of the Beast if you can (there's an English subtitled R2 DVD from Spain), those are his best films, IMO

Thanks for the hint, I haven't seen The day of the beast, but açcion mutante was great

Nobody does berserk like de la Iglesia. Can't wait.

Can somebody please do an uncut bluray release of Perdita Durango?
