You may be familiar with the feeling: you go on a date and realize that the person you’re with is not a good fit, almost like they are waving a warning sign. In this thrilling and otherworldly tale, Domino Day (played by Siena Kelly) literally sucks the energy out of her dates – she’s a witch who needs it to survive. Feeling alone and dissatisfied, all she wants is to find a welcoming community. However, when a coven discovers her (a coven that happens to run a plant shop), they become concerned about Domino’s sloppy hunting methods and decide she must be stopped. Things become more complicated when someone from her past suddenly reappears through magic. This story is fresh, spooky, and entertaining.

Did the Day Go Well? (1942 film directed by Alberto Cavalcanti), airing at 11am on Film4.
Alberto Cavalcanti’s powerful propaganda film, based on a story by Graham Greene, may seem like a terrifying spin-off of Mr. Bates vs the Post Office, with a postmistress wielding a hatchet as the unlikely protagonist. However, the film cleverly subverts our assumptions about the ordinary residents of an English village. As a group of German paratroopers disguised as an army unit plan a sea invasion in the area, the village’s women and children lead a fierce resistance. It becomes clear that there is nothing quaint about their determination to protect their home.
