A workaholic composer (Jon Finch) is at home while his wife (Prunella Gee) is out having an affair. After the power goes out from a storm the composer walks out to the barn where he finds Lucinda Jessop (Patricia Quinn). The young woman says that she's a witch and she's certainly not used to any of the current electronics. Soon the composer begins to feel that he might just be losing his mind.
I was really surprised to see how much I enjoyed WITCHING TIME as it was a good throwback to the type of films that the studio were making in the early 70s. I think what I enjoyed most was some of the earlier, non-horror moments like the witch getting a walk through in the house and seeing all sorts of items that weren't invented yet 350 years earlier when she was burned for being a witch.
The film also boosts some good performances with Finch leading the way in a strong role. I thought he was good at showing the fragile mental state of this man. Quinn was good as the witch as was Gee as the wife. Ian McCulloch (ZOMBIE) is also fun in his role as the doctor.
