And color me unimpressed. This movie was boring and bland. Sure, it had adequate production value, but the storyline was just downright boring. Director Reine Swart played on every single horror trope there is, and jump scares in an abundance. It was so overly done that it weighed down the movie.
As for the storyline, well that was just a swing and a miss from writer Reine Swart. There was very little of any interest in the storyline, and the movie trotted on in a very monotonous pacing with very little happening. And this was particularly troublesome for a horror movie, because it felt prolonged and uneventful. And you could just smell the jump scares coming a mile away.
The acting in the movie was lukewarm at best. I mean, I wasn't impressed with what I saw on the screen here, generally speaking for the entire cast. However, don't get me wrong here, because I am not saying that it was bad performances, not at all. But it just felt mediocre and as if the casted actresses and actors weren't really committing their full potential to their performances.
For a horror movie, then "Heks" fell short of delivering something worthwhile. And truth be told, it was somewhat of a struggle to sit through the course of the entire movie.
My rating of "Heks" lands on a mere three out of ten stars.
