The Witch in the Window
Directed by Andy Mitton
Simon and his estranged twelve-year-old son, Finn, head to Vermont to repair an old farmhouse - and hopefully, their relationship too. But shortly after arriving, they learn of the previous owner, an infamously cruel woman named Lydia who may have never left. And as Simon makes repairs, he's also making Lydia's spirit stronger... until a terrifying encounter leaves him doubting whether he can protect his son from the evil that's making its way into their heads, and hearts. A SHUDDER ORIGINAL.
A father and son fix up a home with a very dark past.
Cast: Alex Draper, Charlie Tacker, Carol Stanzione
Excellent. Affecting two-hander with some understated humor. Standout performance from the father. Creepy more than scary, but enjoyably so. Some overturning of ghost story cliches, esp. with the visuals. Quiet but not boring.
i liked it a little sad though. lol
Loved the atmosphere and the plot. Some good creepy moments without too many jump scares. Worth a watch!
It's hardly an instant classic, but it's an enjoyable take on the 'fixing up a spooky old house' sub-genre that leaves enough to the imagination rather than shoving a shitload of exposition down your throat. There are a handful of notes to the story that aren't delved into; whether you like that sort of thing or not may impact your enjoyment of the film. Worth a watch.
