Not a Total Waste of Time, but Nothing Special
2 May 2020 | by ryan_sySee all my reviews

This movie had the right pieces including a likeable protagonist, decent practical effects, and a brisk pace. But the plot felt "forced" by the end and it veered into an average movie. It lacked effective scares and a sense of dread that I like in a "witch" movie and the antagonist was not as frightening as I would have liked.

I don't regret watching it, but I was hoping for more.
