You wanna Root for the Wicked Witch
15 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I found out about this movie I was only going to see it because the wrestler Al Snow was in it as the Gnome King. I was extremely happy that the movie was phenomenal! My friend and I were lucky to have been able to meet Eliza Swenson and Barry Ratcliffe as well as the director Lee Scott. This movie is completely different and better than Wizard of Oz. There are surprises you don't see coming and it has such a great cast. In the end my friend and I were rooting for the wicked witch of the west because of how awesome! This is a must see and must own for any Oz fan. There is a great cast and the special effects are memorizing. This movie proves you don't need a major studio behind you to make an amazing movie!
