The cinematic spectre of the witch — the most prominent archetype of unruly feminine power — has been both a genuine accusation that meant a death sentence for women throughout history, and also a dark, fanciful identity that many modern women find empowering.

This list includes both varieties, and even includes a few movies (’Firestarter’, ’Lucy’, and Disney's 'Frozen') where the word “witch” might not be spoken aloud, but supernatural feminine powers are on full display nonetheless.
