The Witch in the Window: Surprisingly enjoyable
5 February 2019 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Let's be clear, though The Witch in the Window is advertised as a horror and certainly has horror elements it's hard to identify it as such. I don't know quite why, it just doesn't feel right labeling it as one.

It tells the story of a father and son who are refurbishing a house with a dark secret.

Not exactly original right? Thankfully it's revelations are well above par, the cinematography is great and our leading man is excellent. Even the kid was quite good considering how I despise crotch goblins of all shapes and sizes.

More of a mystery genre type than anything else it's an intriguing little film which despite my claim isn't horror actually managed to have the biggest scares and most disturbing moments I've seen from a film in months.

I actually jumped several times as well as the proverbial sitting on the edge of my seat. I was gripped, I was chilled and most importantly I was entertained.

Sadly once everything wraps up it's not actually all that great an ending, it should have by all rights been better. If I had to do an analogy I'd say this movie is a beautifully crafted multi tiered cake filled with yummy sweet stuff but instead of a cherry ontop it has a brussel sprout.

Regardless this is still a very enjoyable effort.

The Good:

Alex Draper

Disturbing understated imagery

Really quite scary stuff

The Bad:

Disappointing ending
