POLL DESCRIPTION

unknown member writes:

Witches seem to me to be an under used horror trope. Switching to movies for a moment, there are tons of vampire, zombie, ghost, monster movies but only a few good witch stories despite their iconic ubiquity this time of year in decorations and Halloween paraphernalia. What's driving it? Not movies, and probably not books either but go ahead and prove me wrong please.
