Wicked Witches has it’s fair share of problems, chief among them is the narratives non-use of characterization. Mark is a rather unlikable protagonist, his friends show up only to be serve as a way to increase the film’s body count, and the titular witches themselves have nearly no backstory. This makes it incredibly hard to give a singular damn about anyone involved in these goings-on, so all tension is rendered pretty moot.
On the other hand, lack of relatable characters can be over looked if a fright flick delivers some solid effects work…at least for your’s cruelly anyway. On that front I’m happy to report that Wicked Witches excels as the film features a beastly bevy of eerie effects; all brought to life by good ol’ practical wizardry! Also of not, the climax of the film is handled really well, and is worth sticking around for.
While a decidedly mixed-bag of a fright flick, I’d say give Wicked Witches a ghoulish go if for nothing more than the fun as hell effects work on display…just don’t expect this one to become a creepy classic.
