Review of "Wicked Witches” by The Headless Critic
Wicked Witches – 2019
Distribution by: Midnight Releasing
With his wedding ring left lying of the asphalt, straying husband Mark (Duncan Casey) returns to his childhood home at Dumpling Farm. His old buddy Ian (Justin Marosa) runs the farm now but things aren’t the way he remembers them. Soon after arriving to his adolescent home, Mark begins having nightmares that get progressively worse. When his nightmares bewitch him in his daytime he realizes something has ahold of Dumpling Farm and it’s not letting go.
A promiscuous, unappreciative man takes his wife for granted but he doesn’t realize just how big of a witch other women can be. Made with only fifteen hundred pounds, this British independent import written and directed by first time feature filmmakers the Pickering brothers vacations on a farm overrun by beautiful but deadly witches. A different take on a hungry sorceress make them stand out from other films as much as the original title The Witches of Dumpling Farm, which sadly got rebranded to blend in with every other horror movie. A slow build on something that just isn’t right turns deadly quick. For a low budget indie film these witches deliver a bloodbath that’s worth waiting for.
