Dario Argento Would Be Proud!
28 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

Amazing Movie 8.5/10, this is up there with Susperia, House of Tears & Rosemary's Baby (Orig) Fantastic rendition to the witch genre!

A great story with rich acting and camera work, the transition of scenes was flawless. Alex Essoe showed absolute brilliance. This is what REAL Horror & Horror Crime enthusiast want! The synthetic 80's /90's music arrangement was awesome which Dario Argento would be proud of!!

Finally not the "a group of friends go to a remote cabin in the woods!" or "Haunted by her/his past" story! With the acting cast looking like they were born with the silver spoon and no life experiences!

I think a star is born as well as a director with an immense attention to detail has emerged as a hart hitting competitor. If you're a Horror Crime & Witch genre fan don't let this slip your fingers! Hire it, download it, borrow it you will not be sorry!
