Storyline

"Season of the Equinox, the witch besets her kill. One less soul in the town to know, taken against their will." It is a bedtime story nearly every kid in the small town of Summerset has heard. A silly story passed down from generation to generation that offers just enough chills to keep the legend alive. This year is different. Seven year old Amanda Drake is swiped from her bedroom window. Rumors swirl. The Witch has returned. Always up for a good fright, and a chance to impress the girls, 18 year old Zach and his friends decide to sneak into the woods and find the mysterious old house where the legendary Witch supposedly lives. Unbeknownst to Zach, his younger brother Max and Max's "girlfriend" Sammy sneak along. They all soon discover that folklore isn't always myth and that bedtime stories sometimes come true. The Witch has indeed returned, intent on casting her magical spells to deceive, hunt and ultimately consume the local children - little ones to keep her young, older ones to...

I didn't mind this movie.
26 March 2016 | by Zbigniew_KrycsiwikiSee all my reviews

This is nothing special, but it also isn't as bad as some reviews here have said. The primary settings, the house and surrounding forest areas, provided a bit of atmospherics, and were competently filmed, it doesn't sink to unwatchable shaky cam, and/ or deep green or yellow colour tinting and frantic editing. The characters are at least somewhat likable. The acting, while not Oscar worthy, is tolerable at worst, decent at best. The screen writing was all over the place, sometimes clichéd, sometimes melodramatic, sometimes inspired, as it tells its fairy tale- like story of a mythical witch/ ghost going after the group of teenagers who vandalised her creepy house in the woods.

The characters are just that: characters, who have a bit of depth to them, not just empty, meaningless cyphers who exist merely to be killed. They are not repulsive imbeciles present in far too many of these low budget horrors, and Julie (Jess Adams) is gorgeous, but her character disappears for too long. I'm going to look for more of her films now.

If some editing had been done, this might have been a decent little B- movie, but as it is, it's a marginally talented cast and crew working with a ridiculously over long screenplay, and variable effects work, and ending up with a watchable but unmemorable horror.
