    10. The Wizard of Oz (1939)

    This movie isn't exactly spooky, but you can't deny that these witches are true icons. From the beautiful Glinda to the devious Wicked Witch of the West, this movie inspired countess adorable Halloween looks and introduced so many of us to the wonderful world of witches.

    9. Spirited Away (2001)

    This adorable animated movie details the adventure of a ten year old girl into the woods filled with witches and spirits. Not only is it the cutest thing you will ever watch, but Zeniba and Yubaba are absolute queens.
    Studio Ghibli

    Anything produced by Studio Ghibli is pure magic, but Spirited Away is especially amazing. With dragons, spirits, and witches, you'll be transported into a completely different world.

    8. Big Fish (2003)

    Big Fish is such a sweet movie about a man who loves telling stories to his son and their relationship towards the end of his life. The witch in this movie has a glass eye, and it's fabled to show you the way you're going to die. While this movie isn't scary, it's definitely worth watching.

    7. Bewitched (2005)

    Based on the popular '60s TV show, Bewitched is not only funny but iconic in its own right. This modern-day Samantha is a lovable witch trying to escape her powers who only ends up using them more as she falls in love with a mortal.

    6. The Love Witch (2016)

    The Love Witch is not only an incredibly feminist movie, but it also stays true to many occult practices. Elaine is in love with love, but her methods of finding and keeping it are a little... unconventional, to say the least. That being said, she very well may be the most iconic witch on this list.

    5. Stardust (2007)

    Stardust is one of the most magical movies I've ever seen. From the minute it begins, you can feel how special it is. And, in case you were wondering, these three witches and their quest to be forever young are the best part.

    4. Practical Magic (1998)

    Cursed to lose those they love, these two sisters and their witchy aunts have no choice but to practice their magic when they get into some trouble with the undead. This movie is both thrilling and heartwarming. Every second is – and I cannot stress this enough – perfect and witchy.

    3. Hocus Pocus (1993)

    Three witch sisters casting a magical spell on Halloween night

    There's no denying that these were the witches that shaped our childhood. Vowing to come back in 100 years when a virgin lights a candle, these witches will never fail to make you laugh or fill you with nostalgia.

    2. The VVitch (2015)

    This movie will keep you confused and terrified the whole time. It's downright spooky and pretty historically accurate in its portrayal of witch hysteria. Also, good luck trying to figure out who the witch of the wood is.

    1. And lastly, The Craft (1996)

    This movie is entirely dedicated to these four iconic witches. These girls discover witchcraft in high school and use it to get what they want, but it comes at a cost. This movie is filled with magical moments and is a must watch if you're interested in the pop culture of witches.
