Storyline

One hundred years ago, an angry mob, intent on justice for their murdered children, hung the woman they believed was the murderer. They branded her a witch, wraped her body in chains and buried it deep in the woods. Flash forward to the present - when Deb and her friends play a childhood game on the witch's wooded grave, they open the door to death. As her friends and family begin to change into something less than human, Deb struggles to stop the witch's curse. But her search for the truth will reveal an evil beyond her imagination.

Write Better Scripts!
16 October 2011 | by DaveEd-quinteroSee all my reviews

This is the longest student film I've ever seen. The script is episodic and loses its self in random teen drama; and it does not carry the elements of a well structured horror movie. The acting, music, and photography are mediocre at best. Maybe the acting could have been better if there was actual subtext in the dialogue, because everything the characters say is exactly on the nose. That just makes some bad cheese. Not a good thing.

With the budget and production values they could have made a scary movie. But this just looks like a bad MTV teen dramedy with a witch. All the reviews that gave this high stars are honest liars, or they are blind, or have never seen a movie and this was their first.

I feel bad for the Florida Independent companies because they keep making crap like this. And for the sites who praise the fact that the director is a woman and she made a horror movie; should actually watch the movie because this actually makes the stereotype that women can't make good horror movies even more true. I really hope another women is able to prove this stereotype wrong...

If anything the script is the root to the failure of this script. Young directors should learn to see a good script from a bad one, and study the elements that make a good film fall in its genre. Once again, the script was episodic, and loses the horror elements with the saturated teen drama. Netflix is getting desperate, because they actually picked this up. This at least gives hope to all independent movie makers.
