Storyline

An old evil spirit, that of Horace Granger, is not any old evil spirit but one that is very different. It not only tells you the past and future, it also protects you from danger, keeps away people who hate you, and warns you about the people who are a threat to you. Granger wants to be a true Friend, a Protector, an Armour against the bad around you. He wants to fill the loneliness in your life with its true friendship. Hannah is a hider. She cries at her mother's grave, but does not care for a father, David, who is alive. She and David lived as strangers in the same house. There's something that happened a long time ago which distanced her from David. She does not have answers to his questions. How could she, when she herself has some unanswered question about her past? Now she lived a life which is lonely and lost. She likes it this way, until a friend comes into her life - a friend in the form of the evil spirit of Granger. Jake is a vagabond, carefree yet cagey, awkward in front ... Written by Vivek Singhania

Quite a different feel to the genre. Possibly for the last-time, 'Notre Dame' could be shot as part of any cinema, making the opening shot memorable. Noteworthy filmmaking in low-budget from the visionary producers.

Stars: 4 out of 5

Premise: : "Something has caused Hannah's mom die the unnatural death that Hannah had witnessed as a child. Hannah returns home to her estranged Father to piece together the circumstances of her Mother's death. In the process, she discovers an ancient Indian Yantra board from a local antique dealer that leads to a series of strange, uncalled-for incidents. Hannah & her friends uncover a deadly curse from the past. A curse that has engulfed not only her's but even her friends' lives."

Coming from a French Director, 'Hexing' does complete justice to the tone & colour with low-key lighting and noir all through. Lenoir showcased the human emotions & what goes on in the minds, flawlessly.

A smooth transition of thoughts and events have been portrayed well through the edits.

The nuances of every relationship is established by the actors' toned down & poised expressions. The first half established the subtle undercurrents of the plot. Dominique Swain, as always, has been good, however, she was under utilised.

Set at a leisurely pace, the first 30 minutes give a smooth build-up to the plot without any forced horror to claim the genre.

Navarro & Rodier have done a commendable job of creating the tension through sound design despite a calm visual.

Walsh has made each frame look like pages from the classic French coffee table books, making it a treat to the eyes.

This is a strong plot & subject, portrayed in a simple narrative.

However, the connection between the Yantra board and Hannah, that made her reaction to it different from her friends, could have been more spelled out. Why didn't she respond to it the way her friends did ? Also, the character sketch of Horace Granger, the antagonist (played by Ketan Anand), and his motives could have been more elaborated.

The horror quotient is average. Impact is good. Screenplay is interesting. Though it's quite engaging for the audience, the story could have been more connected with the scope of this subject.

This is not a horror film where we just sit detached & watch & jump at any horrifying visual. In 'Hexing' the characters look like people next door and make us relate to them stronger. It's realistic in treatment that makes us think about the story.

My rating could be 3.5 out of 5, had it not been for the Producers who did a praiseworthy job of making this film in such low budget. My extra .5 rating goes to them for a vision that has optimised the production value without compromising on the narratives & content.
