A man crash lands in rural Appalachia and awakens in the attic of a traditional Hoodoo practitioner. He desperately tries to break free from her dark magic and save his family from a sinister ritual before the rise of the blood moon.
While flying to his father's funeral in rural Appalachia, an intense storm causes Marquis (Omari Hardwick) to lose control of the plane carrying him and his family. He awakens wounded, alone and trapped in Ms. Eloise's (Loretta Devine) attic, who claims she can nurse him back to health with the Boogity, a Hoodoo figure she has made from his blood and skin. Unable to call for help, Marquis desperately tries to outwit and break free from her dark magic and save his family from a sinister ritual before the rise of the blood moon.
Ok Spell seemed to be a typical production, a horror movie where a family trip goes terribly wrong and they end up in a bad situation with apparently no way out.
And the plot sure acts like so, as it moves quickly to that direction and then...the movie starts. Sure there are some elements you've seen in other horrors, but the execution here felt fresh, not copying others, not repetitive, but developing its own way of telling the story. I was intrigued throughout its entire course, while waiting too see what the third act brings. And I have to say, that one delivers as well, it is a good way to wrap the story up and it provides the needed satisfaction after sitting through some difficult scenes.
All in all, Spell is definitely a win, I do recommend it, I think most fans of the genre will appreciate it and enjoy it.
