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.
