The Clichés Are Summoned
9 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

I was enjoying this series until this episode. I could hardly believe how many awful clichés were used as my suspension of disbelief was dismantled. This was no self-conscious, post-modern tactic, either, just a clumsy cliché-fallback and lazy television. There were so many old howlers: a zombie attack that was all but comic; a chainsaw was in the shed and is wielded by a girl who single-handedly destroys the army of darkness; almost none of these witches use MAGIC except as a last resort, despite earlier being told that witches have nothing to fear but the Supreme, they seem to spend most of the time running away and screaming (and falling down after two steps, of course, while the zombies must be moving at one inch-per-hour and are unable to catch them...or open/smash through doors!). The Supreme Witch sees her daughter injured and is in despair and unable to heal her, even though she shortly afterwards is able to revive a stillborn baby FROM THE DEAD. The so-called Witches Council condemns one of their own mainly based on a picture on an iPhone, backed up by highly circumstantial evidence and BURNS her to death, even though almost all of the witches have disappeared and they are very worried about their dwindling numbers. None of them seem able to try a bit of magic to find the killed teen- witch that is stinking out the house upstairs, either.There is a list of horror-clichés on WatchMojo and I think almost all of them were crammed into this episode. What a waste of a promising start.
