Season of the Witch ★½ Hungry Wives; Jack's Wife 1973 (R)

A frustrated housewife becomes intrigued with a neighboring witch and begins to practice witchcraft herself, through murder and seduction. Meant to be suspenseful, thrilling, and topical, it is none of these. Poorly acted at best. Originally 130 minutes! 89m/C DVD .
