THE LOVE WITCH is a horror drama in which a woman uses her magical potions and spells to lure men into a relationship.

Sex

In a scene of strong sex the bare buttocks of a naked man are visible as he thrusts between the open legs of a bare breasted woman. In another scene line drawings show couples in various sexual positions, including missionary position penetration and a man's mouth close to a woman's vagina.

Nudity

Several scenes of sexualised nudity show a woman stripping to expose her breasts before she dances for her various lovers. There are also moments of full frontal male and female nudity during satanic rituals.

Violence

A man is stabbed in the chest several times and left with a bloody gash in his skin. Other bloody images include a man lying dead in the bath with a bloody cut on his wrist. There is also sight of a bloodied tampon being put into a jar as part of witch's potion-making.

Other issues include some drug misuse as a woman spikes a man's drink with an unspecified substance. There is brief sexual threat to a woman as a mob push her to the floor and remove her outer clothes. Men remove their belts and approach her in a threatening fashion but the woman is rescued before anything further can happen to her. There is some moderate bad language with uses of 'pussy', 'bitch', 'skank' and 'whore'.
