The Witches Cave (1989) -- Russian horror obscurity which includes Satan, Witches and space ships! An absolute gem of a film. Marina Levtoza delivers a strikingly convincing performance as the mentally unhinged love interest Belogurochka. It is delightful to see a horror film of this calibre (trash horror) trying its hand at some old fashioned Biblical symbolism, as Marina is enticed by the dark side, or Satan's path, as represented by the witches. This is pure Genesis parody, and the tremendous clout of the chromatic imagery is rival, if not commensurate, to that of Polanski's 'Rosemary's Baby' (1968). The witches, of course, inhabit a cave, symbolic of that small, hidden alcove in all our hearts where Satan lurks, "whispering" to us with his empty promises. NOTE: The witches communicate with each other by whispering! Class!
