Here’s what people had to say about Savage Witches:
‘It is not often we see movies like this these days, a film that is such the product of an infectious spirit of fun and adventure… It is a celebration, and thus needs to be celebrated.’ – Mike Everleth of Bad Lit Underground Film Journal
‘A true example of dedication and creative affirmation, and a genuine example of outsider filmmaking, Clara and Daniel are an inspiration for all.’ – Jack Sargeant
‘Each sequence was like a tasty morsel cocooned between more tasty morsels. I constantly wished I could rewind the film and watch a whole segment all over again. … I got that feeling you get when you go to the art gallery and you just want to glide your hand over that rippled canvas; touch and plaster your fingers over everything.’ – Bradley Tuck of One+One Filmmakers Journal
‘Daniel Fawcett and Clara Pais have constructed a masterpiece of experimentation, using the magic of visuals and sounds to create magic of the mind. Your sense of reality, joy and freedom is treated as much as your eyes and ears; this is a film to engage with on every level.’ – Tess Connellan in The Scribblings of a Cinephile
‘Savage Witches takes chances with its style, and I’m highly impressed’ – The Vern’s Video Vortex
‘As if Andrei Tarkovsky collaborated with Terry Gilliam on a remake of ‘The Blair Witch Project’. Awesome colours, cutting, special effects, and the pace never lets up.’ – Strat Mastoris Film blog
‘Simply wonderful… a bold and liberated piece of work.’ – Take One
