Plot: A mother desperate to reconnect with her troubled daughter becomes embroiled in the urban legend of a demonic witch. Runtime: 95 mins Release Date: 03 Feb 2017
I had seen the cover of this movie as a related item on a few horror films and thought the plot was intriguing. Then I saw the Blu Ray was on sale at Walmart, which is actually interesting because it was accidentally stocked two months ahead of its release date. But I didn't complain as I took it home ready for what I was hoping would be a good spooky horror movie night. I wasn't disappointed. Despite the negative reviews, this ended up being one of the better horror treats from IFC Midnight and one of the best overall horror films in recent memory. -Plot- Chloe is somewhat estranged <more>
from her ex-addict mother Jess for the beginning of her life. But now a more stable and wealthy Jess wants to reconnect with her daughter. But before happily ever after could happen, Chloe and a friend had gone to a local neighborhood house where urban legend says a vengeful witch resides. The legend states that if you knock on her door twice, she will come and take you to her world. Well, they knocked twice. That is just the basic plot that sums up the first 5 minutes. Its a typical genre plot, but it is done surprisingly well. I am appalled by the negative scores. This is better than your average scary movie. The mythos is very creepy. The acting is above average for the genre and budget. The directing and cinematography contain some beautiful and terrifying imagery. The musical score is an instant horror classic. The sound design altogether is intense. The trailer for this surprisingly doesn't give away even half of the scares so even seeing it beforehand wont ruin any of it. But the trailer doesn't help its case either. There are plenty of jump scares that will truly get to you. Some might call them lazy, but their just nit picky. The entity of the witch is truly horrifying and will have you reaching for a blanket or light switch in all of its on screen moments. The actor playing the witch entity is the same that played the scary "mama" entity from Mama and the emaciated demon at the end of REC, so you know you're in for some scary imagery with this guy. The mythos of the movie does get a little over indulgent toward the end, but it still works well, despite a somewhat rushed ending and typical horror movie "bad logic" by some characters. Id compare some of the scary moments to "Lights Out" and even one early sighting of the witch to the Nun painting scene in "The Conjuring 2". I am surprised this didn't get a nationwide theatrical release as its production value is pretty nice looking compared to nationwide horror craps like Bye Bye Man. I attribute its absence from cinemas to its lack of a recognizable star. Which is unfortunate since I would have loved to experience this on the big screen. But that's what makes the horror genre so special. Even little gems like this that are ignored by mainstream media can end up being big cult classics and I believe this is a candidate. I am a horror junky and don't scare that easily anymore, but the entity of the witch really got to me. I really found myself inching toward the light switch and looking to see if something was behind me multiple times. One of the few films in a long time that I had trouble watching in the dark entirely during my first viewing. I would even go as far as to say this is a more accessible and fast paced take on A24s period horror "The Witch". I think the negative reviews will surely get lost in praise as this finds its audience. I gave it a 10/10 to do my small part in helping its score improve, but my real grade would be maybe a 8.5/10. Its truly much better than the trailer suggest and definitely better than the negative reviews say. If you want a good fright night with a lover or friends, or even alone, then this is a perfect choice. If you liked "Lights Out" or "The Conjuring" style horror then beware you're in for a scare. Just make sure its dark and the volume is high. I'm adding this to my go to Halloween season movie playlist.
This was a awesome movie and would of loved seeing it in the theater. What is wrong with you people that say it is bad. Heck of a lot better than The Conjuring or the second one. Jeez, people are so stupid to easily put down the better movies. I hate to hear what you think is a great or awesome movie.So pathetic to hear people put the better movies down. Read the review that asks what is the ending about. Jeez, not that hard to know the friend with the baby was the one killing and taking the children. She killed the husband. She had the mark on her chest from the necklace. How stupid to not <more>
even notice that and right after Jess had the necklace because her friend gave it to her to pass the curse to her.Man people need to stop complaining and just enjoy it. Picky bastards. So what if I ruined the end for most. It is heck of a lot better than some movies out there that people praise a lot. Learn to use the voting above the review box too. So many none voted movies that make movies not rated at all.Ticked they got rid of the bulletin boards. Bring them back. I love this movie and watching it again.

Much better than expected. (by reallyevilboy)
I went into this without much expectation, to tell you the honest truth I'm not a big fan of Katee Sackhoff and I see so many horror movies that they all look the same, an endless blur of screaming, running, blood and corny twists.I would rate this well above par.Katee Sackhoff plays a mum who is trying to reconcile her relationship with her daughter. The daughter is being hunted by a dead witch.Story line was good. There were truly creepy moments which I found enjoyable.Twist was predictable but not as corny as I thought it would be.Katee Sackhoff was bearable.
It's all clear now (by gunesbaycan-53143)
Well, what happened was:Mary was the demon's slave, and apparently so was Tira. There are only two ways to get out of being baba yaga's slave, and those are to either: Kill yourself, or to trick someone into doing something evil--as explained by the movie.Mary did indeed take the kids to feed the demon. And then she killed herself to be free of it possibly from guilt after being accused of it .Tira the model holding the baby on the other hand, tricked Jess by lying to her that baba yaga is just an internet fairy tale, and that to save her daughter, she had to find the real <more>
kidnapper. This made Jess believe that the detective was the kidnapper, and through a series of events, Jess led the detective to the demon, effectively fulfilling the part where she was "tricked into doing something evil". At the end, Tira killed the husband to get rid of the evidence that she herself probably planted the folder containing the interrogation with the detective , and her mark disappeared, because she was now freed of the demon's enslavement. The ending scene, was Jess being branded with the seal of the demon, concluding that she is now officially the demon's new slave.
I don't understand such a low rate on IMDb.This movie is really good and Caradog James did a really nice job as a director! The whole story is really good, the entity is really scary and I am not easily frightened person .The mystery unveiled at the end is just mind blowing!
