THE FINAL GIRLS present HERE BE WITCHES

The witch is a unique figure of pop culture. One that conjures images of female power more than any other. The witch is synonymous with power, and she has alternatively been presented as a dangerous, unstable force or a powerful, empathetic protagonist.


When we talk about witches in pop culture, we’re also talking about the representation of women in pop culture. She has been used as a cautionary tale, and has been reclaimed by women and feminist scholars as a figure of female empowerement.


In recent years, from the remakes like Suspiria, Charmed and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and original films like The Witch, The Love Witch, Hereditary and more, the figure of the witch has permeated the public consciousness once again.


Kicking off on Halloween and all throughout November, The Final Girls will dive deep into exploring the figure of the witch in film and TV through a season of films, discussions and a brand-new podcast.
