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...

Absolutely terrible
22 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

As a supposed horror/thriller, this movie failed spectacularly in almost every possible parameter of genre film making. Voting seems to have been disabled on this title so I embarked on the viewing with merely the hope (foolish as it now turns out) that it might offer some enjoyable, easily digestible, Friday night frights - but the experience was so entirely devoid of tension, intrigue or wit that I found myself wondering if the filmmakers had ever even seen a horror film before.

This was absolutely the worst type of supernatural horror - the type where the antagonist is either capable, or not capable, of doing whatever the hell is most convenient for the lazy assed writer and director who couldn't be bothered to figure out a proper story or any decent frights. The witch can teleport instantly to or from wheresoever she pleases, making her invulnerable to bullets - although fire extinguisher powder can befuddle her completely apparently, if that's what needs to happen.

Admittedly supernatural horror does require a fair degree of willing suspension of disbelief, and more often than not they inspire eye-rolling instead of terrified shrieks - but I can remember quite a few supernatural horrors of recent years that I was more than happy to go along with for the ride - Sinister, Dead Silence, Insidious to name just a few.

This really was a bad show by the filmmakers, and a disrespectful waste of the viewers' time.

If I were able to vote I'd give this a grudging two out of ten.
