    The Wicked Witch of The West in The Wizard of OZ (1939)

    Considering this movie was made in the golden age of movie making, it was incredibly frightening watching it as a child. The fact the she had flying monkeys didn’t help either.

    The Invisible Witch from the Blair Witch Project (1999)

    This movie  was so creepy simply because you never actually saw the Blair witch. The viewer was left with the task to conjure her up and be left to think of the most evil witch ever.
