The Wretched review
First of all woah. This is by far the scariest film I’ve seen in a LONG TIME! This is The Witch meets The Blair Witch meets Fright Night. It’s such a unique film that’ll blow you away and stick with you for days! First off the ominous atmosphere of the film was superbly eerie. Just masterful folklore storytelling. To tell you the truth that is my favorite sub genre of horror as I love films like The Wicker Man, Midsommar and The Witch along with the upcoming GWEN. This is one of the best selections out of Fantasia and also one of the best films of the year!
The film synopsis is as follows:
A defiant teenage boy, struggling with his parent’s imminent divorce, faces off with a thousand year-old witch, who is living beneath the skin of and posing as the woman next door.
John Paul Howard(Hell or High Water, Outlaw Country) gives a really grounded performance as Ben. Jamison Jones also gives a knockout performance as Ben’s father Liam. Zarah Mahler gives one of the most frightening performances I have ever seen.
