Arrow Video, with domestic sales and distribution support provided by MVD Entertainment Group, has snagged the distribution rights to writer/director Pierre Tsigaridis’ 2021 award-winning horror film, Two Witches.

The Blu-ray debut will happen on Oct. 18 on the ramp-up to the annual Halloween promotional season … horror, Halloween, of course!

One is reminded of the Robert Frost poem with the line “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I … “ when viewing Two Witches. 

We begin the journey with the first path, “Chapter 1: The Boogeyman,” which finds Sarah (Belle Adams — This World Alone, The Calling) on a night out for dinner with and her lover, Simon (Ian Michaels — Love is on the Air, Easy Targets).

We learn two things quickly, she is pregnant, and some old hag of a woman is giving her an evil gaze through the window of the restaurant, which unnerves Sarah.   Simon is somewhat dismissive, but since she is pregnant and spooked by the events of the evening, he decides that a visit to their friends Dustin and Melissa might be a good idea.   They appear to know a thing or two about witchcraft.

Meanwhile, things in Sarah’s life become darker and darker … spooky events.  Maybe the visit with Dustin and Melissa — and that session with the Ouija board — wasn’t such a good idea after all.

The next path on our things-that-go-bump-in-the-night journey is titled “Chapter 2: Marsha,” which jumps right in with an introduction to a clearly disturbed young woman by the name of Marsha (Rebekah Kennedy — Limbo, To the Bone, House Hunting), who has a roommate, Rachel (Halloween, The Kiss of a Killer, Killer Mermaid), but more importantly, that old hag (played by Marina Parodi) who was putting the evil-eye on poor Sarah in the first chapter, is the crazy-woman’s grandmother.

Marsha has a “man fetish” (I guess you can call it that), in that she wants the “perfect” relationship, but being unhinged that’s not likely.   In any case, the first chapter of Two Witches begins to intertwine with the second chapter as Marsha comes in contact with “someone” that we’ve already met (no spoilers here) … and all hell breaks loose.

Two Witches is a total genre creep-out and the timing of Oct. 18 for the Blu-ray debut from Arrow Video is spot-on.

Bonus features include two commentary options — the first with filmmaker Pierre Tsigaridis (his feature-film debut) and the second features producer and co-writer Maxime Rancon.  

Other bonus goodies include test footage, a two-part “Behind the Movie” presentation, a video session with actor/producer Dina Silva (Melissa), three additional featurettes — “The Boogeywoman,” “The Original Score” and “The Piano Score” — and the Grimmfest 2021 Q&A with Pierre Tsigaridis and Maxime Rancon.
