Editorial Reviews

It is a bedtime story nearly every kid in the small town of Summerset has heard. A silly story passed down from generation to generation that offers just enough chills to keep the legend alive. This year is different. Seven year old Amanda Drake (Caitlin Carmichael) is swiped from her bedroom window. Rumors swirl. The Witch has returned. Always up for a good fright, and a chance to impress the girls, 18 year old Zach (Justin Deeley) and his friends decide to sneak into the woods and find the mysterious old house where the legendary Witch supposedly lives. Unbeknownst to Zach, his younger brother Max (Devon Werkheiser) and Max's "girlfriend" Sammy (Diana Hopper) sneak along. They all soon discover that folklore isn't always myth and that bedtime stories sometimes come true. The Witch has indeed returned with the intent of casting her magical spells to deceive, hunt and ultimately consume the local children to keep her young, older ones to keep her strong and pretty ones to keep her beautiful. Zach and Max, who can't stand each other, and their teenage friends find themselves trapped in the Witch's lair. They must bury their differences or be buried themselves. There is no escape from "The Wicked" once the spell has been cast.

Every town in America has their version of "The Wicked." They're the weird person, house, or other location kids whisper about amongst themselves in fear and parents use to threaten their children with. It's the old house on the hill everyone walks faster by on the way home from school or the old man or woman we're told not to talk to.

Director Peter Winther and writer Michael Vickerman put together a fun little indie film that is only hindered by shoddy CGI and a wavering sense of who it was made for. "The Wicked" is an extended episode of R.L. Stine's "The Haunting Hour" until we get one or two sequences of sexuality and dialogue littered with bad language. Movies like this always leave me shaking my head in wonder. If they tone down those elements or omit them, they would have a PG-13 film that more people could enjoy.

The title character (Cassie Keller) would make any person feel anxious or frightened. She's a witch who maintains her beauty through devouring children. The legend goes that if you visit her house in the woods and break one of its windows, she will come for you.

"The Wicked" is both a coming-of-age tale like "The Goonies" or "The Monster Squad" and a slasher flick like "Urban Legend" or "I Know What You Did Last Summer." There are two sets of main characters. First, we have two life-long teenage friends, Devon Werkheiser ("Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide") and Diana Hopper, in that awkward state where they start to have feelings for each other. Secondly, we have the hip sex-crazed high schoolers who are always looking for a new thrill.

The CGI is at best on the same level as any number of fantasy shows from the late 1990s and early 2000s. They definitely don't blend seamlessly with their surroundings.

Uninspired Friday 13thesque excursion into the woods in search of a haunted cabin except instead of Jason we get a disappearing witch that looks like she's wearing clawed oven-mits (witches are s s scaaary). The closer it gets to the end the stupider "The Wicked" becomes as the dialogue progressively degrades including excessive overuse of the phrase "go go go!!!"; somehow every male character manages to be a complete tool, the best performance is given by an 8-year old girl and the only thing even remotely creepy about this flick is the pic at the top of this page... somebody tell me where that movie is cuz that's what I wanna watch. I feel so embarrassed as I write this review. :(

Technically, Wicked is not a good movie. The acting is weak, the plot predictable and the story is derivative. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it. There are a few enjoyable twists with how a couple of the characters play out - still predictable but cathartic.

I watched this movie alone due to my wife not being a fan of horror, but I expect this would be more fun to watch with friends with copious amounts of popcorn. It's creepy but most probably won't lose sleep over it.

One review mentioned that the movie took awhile to really get started. I have to agree. If the writer had done a better job of tying some of the back story elements with the main thread it would have been a better movie. In this case, most of what occurs in the first half could have been compressed into dialogue between the characters.

We have to be a bit forgiving when it comes to horror movies because there is not much to choose from unless you are a fan of torture movies like Saw or Hostel. Until movie studios start taking horror seriously again, true horror fans have to accept movies like The Wicked.

If you take the shark out of Jaws, it's still a good movie. If you take the witch out of The Wicked, the same thing is true. The characters, actors, and writing are all very well done and hold your attention even when the witch is not lurking about. The cast is attractive and can actually act, so you wont be fast-forwarding to the kill scenes. I find this to be a rare quality in most horror movies from the last 20 years.
I bought this movie because it featured a witch, and she delivers the goods. Her last scene is great fun.
The movie occasionally shows its' low budget in the interior scenes, with lots of capturing and recapturing characters in the same few rooms during the second half.
This movie is a good time, check it out.

This is another Hansel and Gretel type of film with a legendary wicked witch who lives in the forest and devours children. In the opening scene young Amanda (Caitlin Carmichael) is in tears, afraid that "The Wicked" is going to get her. It was a very convincing scene, A+ for Miss Carmichael. Once she goes missing, our 4 teenage heroes plus 2 go in the woods and camp out near the witches house who they arouse during the very deadly spring equinox.

The film did an effective job of building character of our main players with some brief moments and conversations. I thought the witch scenes could have been done better as they were an inconsistent hit and miss going from the overly supernatural to just a plain gore slasher. It really doesn't effectively work both ways. A decent Redbox rental, might make it to my collection when the price drops. Takes place in Orono, Michigan.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, brief sex and skinny dipping scene and brief nudity.
