Pyewacket

Directed by Adam MacDonald

A brilliant, brooding and flat-out frightening supernatural chiller from the producers of modern horror classics The Witch and The Void, featuring The Walking Dead’s Laurie Holden. After her father dies, teenager Leah is forced, by her unstable mother, to leave her friends behind and move to a house in the woods. Feeling isolated and hopeless, Leah turns to Black Magic to release her anger. She naively performs an occult ritual found in a book on her bedroom shelf to invoke the spirit of a witch to kill her mother. Terrified by strange occurrences, and stricken by guilt, Leah desperately tries to reverse the spell, but soon realizes she has awoken something in the woods... and nothing can prepare her for the terror that has been unleashed.

Feeling isolated and hopeless, Leah turns to Black Magic to release her anger. She naively performs an occult ritual found in a book on her bedroom shelf to invoke the spirit of a witch to kill her mother.

Cast: Nicole Munoz, Laurie Holden, Chloe Rose, Eric Osborne

Pretty good low-budge/indy occult-witchy effort. Effective in the mystery-suspense arena, atmospheric, good acting. Could have been more, but good for what it is, and worth seeing.

Above average but not something I'd watch again.

Unfortunately got frustrating at the very end. Unlike most people, I'm actually not annoyed by the stupid kid being stupid, I'm annoyed at the mom not taking her to the hospital. Overall, it was just passable.

3* desk review. It’s a fine one for passing time at work. The premise is pretty good and the acting’s okay. I actually really dug the ending a bit even if it seemed a little abrupt.

A little slow. I went to pause it because I thought there was maybe an hour left but there was like 25 mins. It relies on suspense a lot during the first hour, but the ending is really good. So that makes up for the “slower” beginning.
