The Wretched ★★★½

The Wretched is a film that I would describe as a “witchy Fright Night,” with a little Rear Window thrown in. While there is a clear effort made by the Pierce Brothers to create an atmospheric and scary horror film, the film does suffer in the early going by featuring “teen movie hijinks” that ultimately have no bearing on the plot as a whole. That said, the film does have some impressive make-up effects and isn’t afraid to show that this is a witch that likes to eat children. Overall, I have The Wretched a mild recommendation.
