Another New Zealand Good Movie
27 May 2019 | by FourstrawberriesSee all my reviews

So much better than the 5.2 it currently rates. The movies I turn off before the end rate 5 or lower, this movie kept me interested all the way through. OK, it's not a GREAT movie, but it is a good one. A fresh approach to the overworked good witch/bad witch theme. A good script, some very competant acting and the backdrop of the earthquake devastated New Zealand cityscape woven together expertly on a meagre budget. This isn't a trashy Hollywood teen-movie, this is a genuine chiller. The versatile Timothy Spall pulls this movie together expertly, and it would be no exaggeration to say the movie would be a great deal poorer without him. That isn't to detract from the skills of others involved, they were all very good. It's just that the storyline wouldn't have worked so well in lesser hands. A good effort all round. Bravo New Zealand, keep 'em coming !!
