"Season of the Equinox, the witch besets her kill. One less soul in the town to know, taken against their will." It is a bedtime story nearly every kid in the small town of Summerset has heard. A silly story passed down from generation to generation that offers just enough chills to keep the legend alive. This year is different. Seven year old Amanda Drake is swiped from her bedroom window. Rumors swirl. The Witch has returned. Always up for a good fright, and a chance to impress the girls, 18 year old Zach and his friends decide to sneak into the woods and find the mysterious old house where the legendary Witch supposedly lives. Unbeknownst to Zach, his younger brother Max and Max's "girlfriend" Sammy sneak along. They all soon discover that folklore isn't always myth and that bedtime stories sometimes come true. The Witch has indeed returned, intent on casting her magical spells to deceive, hunt and ultimately consume the local children - little ones to keep her young, older ones to... Written by
Don't expect it to knock your socks off, just your average lame D2D B horror film
Don't get too excited about this in advance & ignore the present rating completely(9.3). Hopefully by the time you're reading this balance has been restored and it has leveled out when some more folks come to vote who aren't related to the film. It's a simple plot more or less about some local folklore consisting of a witch who's spirit resides at an abandoned house at the edge of town. The tale becomes all too real when a little girl is snatched from her second story bedroom window without a trace. Even with the unexplained disappearance looming, six local kids decide to test the myth by breaking a window in the old house. An action that does not go unpunished as the witch begins to hunt & torment each of the group one by one.
All that may sound scary & entertaining combined with a listed budget of $1.5 million one would think it possible to make one hell of a film. Well that's not the case despite good production values & half decent acting from the cast. There is zero at atmosphere present & it is plagued by glaring plot holes. Although there was some gore present(two short scenes) I felt it didn't succeed as a horror filled thrill ride in the least. While at the same time I didn't feel the urge to hit the kill switch & banish it from existence. My main complaints are the very underdeveloped back story involving the witch & the overly long run time. If it were a little more balanced in the setup it could have been a worthwhile, but instead it falls into the endless pile of forgettable B grade horror films. If you run into it & need to kill some time fine. Just don't run out to track it down because it's not worth the rental, trust me. 3/10
