Pyewacket

Pyewacket

Directed by Adam MacDonald

A brilliant, brooding and flat-out frightening supernatural chiller from the producers of modern horror classics The Witch and The Void, featuring The Walking Dead’s Laurie Holden. After her father dies, teenager Leah is forced, by her unstable mother, to leave her friends behind and move to a house in the woods. Feeling isolated and hopeless, Leah turns to Black Magic to release her anger. She naively performs an occult ritual found in a book on her bedroom shelf to invoke the spirit of a witch to kill her mother. Terrified by strange occurrences, and stricken by guilt, Leah desperately tries to reverse the spell, but soon realizes she has awoken something in the woods... and nothing can prepare her for the terror that has been unleashed.

Feeling isolated and hopeless, Leah turns to Black Magic to release her anger. She naively performs an occult ritual found in a book on her bedroom shelf to invoke the spirit of a witch to kill her mother.

Cast: Nicole Munoz, Laurie Holden, Chloe Rose, Eric Osborne

Really enjoyed this, was super tense , it was great how little you see the witch less is so much more , the ending was also very unexpected and something different.

Not the worst thing I’ve ever watched for sure, but it suffers from a case of “this is not how people act”. Something really cool could come out of this idea but the heavy handed use of tropes and stereotypical character behavior kind of took me out of it.

Atmospheric and creepy. I liked that the the main character and her friends were metalheads and already into the occult. It has nothing to do with the Devil or Satanism. Pyewacket is some sort of evil spirit, they don't get into it much more than that. Cool setting in the middle of nowhere, messed up ending, epic original score. What's not to like.

I like that so many people like this movie! I liked it a normal amount. It's a normal little movie. Very smart for a low-budget horror in giving the monster about 1 minute of screen time and using it well.

This one was OK. It's slow and arguably vague, which might be a good thing or a bad thing depending on what you prefer in a movie. At a few times, the plot feels like it's going somewhere new, but the film just stubbornly stays where it is instead
