Blu-ray Release: Witching & Bitching

Price: Blu-ray $29.98
Studio: IFC Midnight

From 2013, the bizarre supernatural action-comedy adventure Witching & Bitching comes from the singular Spanish cult filmmaker Alex de la Iglesia (The Last Circus).

When a bank heist in the city doesn’t all go according to plan, José and Tony find themselves in possession of some hostages and speeding through the mountains of Spain, hoping to quietly slip over the border. Not wanting to give up his custody days to his ex-wife, José has also brought his son along for both the robbery and the ride. Little do they know that this is only the beginning of their troubles, as they soon make a stop in a small tavern in the Basque countryside and find themselves the honored guests of a fractured family of witches who are preparing for an ancient ritual.

Released on DVD in 2014 and originally titled Las brujas de Zugarramurdi, this one is unrated but looks R-ish to me!
