THE PLOT THUS FAR
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“The Wicked’ keeps with a very clean and tight story that is brought to life by believable actors who, at times, make you want to see them die on film-well a few of them anyway. I also found the evil supernatural entity of the witch very dark, and horrible, so I didn’t really want her to prevail in the end. She was pretty vicious. The directing for the film manages to keep your attention with some pretty creepy concepts, and point of view moments, that allows the movie to be dark without being too dark.
It’s a simple plot more or less about some local folklore consisting of a witch who’s spirit resides at an abandoned house at the edge of town. The tale becomes all too real when a little girl is snatched from her second story bedroom window without a trace. Even with the unexplained disappearance looming, six local kids decide to test the myth by breaking a window in the old house. An action that does not go unpunished as the witch begins to hunt & torment each of the group one by one.
The DVD comes with a featurette. The A/V Quality is pretty sharp for standard definition. However, there are minor moments of digital noise. The Dolby track supports the dialogue and that’s all that matters for a horror movie. Still, I’d recommend a rental to the curious.
