‘A harvest for evil’

Wicked Witches is a 2018 British supernatural horror feature film about a young man who becomes possessed by a group of demonic witches…

Directed by Martin J Pickering from a screenplay co-written with Mark Pickering, the movie stars Duncan Casey, Justin Marosa, Kitt Proudfoot, Samantha Schnitzler and Jasmin Clark.

Plot:

After being thrown out of his home by his wife for being promiscuous, Mark finds himself back at Dumpling Farm, a place of youthful memories and parties, but things aren’t quite right.

Mark’s old buddy Ian, who has never left the place, is possessed by a group of demonic, flesh-eating witches. Using Ian and his farm, these beautiful witches honey trap Mark and his friends to consume their souls…

Reviews:

“The witches look dirty and slightly animalistic, but they’re far from hokey and they aren’t the offspring of bad CGI effects (which are typically used in an indie horror film). The new generation of horror fans need to discover the joys of evil witches and they need to see them just like the ones here!” Horror Society

” …seems more zombieish than witchy but if this is their take on the subject then I approve. The FX for its low budget are not that bad either and the soundtrack is quite a lively mix of different genres which goes some way to making this bearable. Due to the bad acting and terribly slow pace of this it is not something I would willingly watch again.” Horrorscreams Videovault

Wicked Witches manages to stay just ahead of its problems even if it never lives up to its potential. There’s some jump scare filled nightmare sequences at the start and the last act works up a claustrophobic feel. There are also a few scenes where the axe-wielding Mark channels Bruce Campbell in the Evil Dead franchise.” Voices from the Balcony
