Filmed as Jack's Wife and briefly released under the title Hungry Wives, Romero's third feature, Season of the Witch, is the disturbing story of a suburban housewife's descent into extramarital sex and the occult. Jan White stars in this daring drama that The Hollywood Reporter called "hypnotically powerful and suspenseful... a nightmarish vision of female oppression."
Promising premis but too dated

Joan Mitchell (Jan White) does quite a good job of playing the frustrated, bored but dutiful housewife with a secret, and the concept of a lady in such a position turning to witchcraft as a way out is not as far fetched as it may seem as woman will turn to religion for fulfilment where it is lacking. This film is just too dated however and is lacking in conviction. At one point Joan tells her boyfriend, "I knew that you would come around when I called you because I had asked the powers to bring it about" Yea, but you had also called him up and asked him around so let's not get too excited!
