Witching Time (1980)
50 min.
Directed by Don Leaver.
With Jon Finch, Patricia Quinn, Prunella Gee, Ian McCulloch, Lennard Pearce.
Satisfying episode from the British TV series Hammer House of Horror.

A witch (Quinn) escapes from death by fire and transports herself forward through time.

Meeting the present-day owner (Finch) of her old estate, she begins manipulating her way into his life and marriage. But to what end are her nefarious plans?

Quinn (Magenta of The Rocky Horror Picture Show) is a standout as the raving and sexual witch, Finch (Polanski's Macbeth) is solid as the tortured object of her affections.

A good way to initiate yourself into the terrific 13-episode TV series from Hammer which ran in 1980.
