PRETTY GOOD WITCH FLICK

THE WICKED

I love movies about witches but for some reason there are very few of them that actually are out there compared to the other creatures and monsters of legend. From the movies that have been made some are good, most are ok, few are classics. This movie falls short of that classic status but it is a good flick. Sure it kinda falls into that teen scream kinda thing but it really is creepy at times. Kids in particular would be truly scared of this.

"The Wicked" is a local legend that kids pass amongst each other and parents tell to make them go to bed. Well in this town it may be a little more than legend. Young girl goes missing apparently taken straight out of her bedroom in the middle of the night. The town officials are on the hunt for a kidnapper but there are some who believe that something more sinister is at work here. Enter your typical teenagers who are planning a nice "wholesome" night out in the woods. Once there they may stumble upon something dark out in a house. A house that if you throw a rock and break a window something "Wicked" this way comes.

This is one of those movies that would have been really great with a bigger budget. I say that because this movie actually is not that bad, in fact I liked it. I have always been about the legend movies plus like I mentioned witch films. Speaking of the witch I really liked what they did with her. He looked very creepy and may be the absolute best part of the film. Also for a low budget flick this movie looked good and had some decent acting in it as well.

Of course this is not a perfect flick as some of the characters can be annoying at times. I guess that makes sense since it is a bunch of teens. I have to say that I did like the two younger teens who were childhood friends becoming something more than that. I felt they both did a good job here, the girl in particular. As far as the older teens they were good as well but the characters were like I said kind of annoying. Also the little girl who was taken was very very good in this; I really believed that she was terrified.

This film was directed by Peter Winther who you may know as a producer on films like "Stargate", "Independence Day", "Godzilla", "The Patriot", and "Eight Legged Freaks". I can tell that this guy has some true potential as a director. The opening scene in particular was excellent. I also liked the writer here as he wrote the film "Warriors of Virtue" and directed the second one. Of course both guys could have done a better job here but overall it was an enjoyable movie. Actually a group of us went over to my grandmother's house a few weeks ago and watched this; she is very much into horror films.
pretty good horror

I think I'll give this a look. Too bad, it did not have a more decent budget.
