"All I touch, I corrupt."
Simon Sinestrari is a warlock. Though he lives in a storm drain and sometimes talks to trees, he's the real deal, no smoke and mirrors. Deadly serious about his craft, he despises falsehoods and misconceptions toward his witchy profession. And as for those who don t believe...
After being picked up for vagrancy, Simon spends a night in jail with Turk (George Paulsin), a young hustler with connections to powerful people in powerful places. One such character is Hercules (Gerald York), a skeptical philanthropist who hires Simon to work a party of hipsters and the well-to-do, among whom is beautiful Linda (Brenda Scott), the pill-popping daughter of the local district attorney. In-between romantic dalliances and colorful sex-magik ceremonies with Linda, Simon must contend with those who dare to challenge his magical prowess, eventually forcing him to summon dark forces of revenge and murder.
Also starring Warhol Factory regular Ultra Violet as Sarah, and an array of trippy 2001-styled special effects, Simon King of the Witches is a shining vehicle for Andrew Prine (Grizzly, The Centerfold Girls), who gives a mesmerizing performance as Simon in this hip, funny, and often bizarre countercultural cult classic by director Bruce Kessler (The Gay Deceivers).

Very interesting but very offbeat. The film contains some very strange scenes and dialog and there moments when the actors seem just a bit uncomfortable with their dialog. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Kevin

As a fan of occult and B-horror films, I am very impressed by the visual quality, script, and the performance by Andrew Prine as Simon. Read morePublished on November 18, 2010 by Phyllis Le Chat
I had only seen this film in an 84 minute Roadshow Home Video relase in the early 80s. Dark Sky has done a superb job with a pristine uncut print and very entertaining talk with... Read morePublished on October 11, 2009 by Trevor William Douglas
