WOOD WITCH: THE AWAKENING (2015) Review and overview


‘Her spell will take you to Hell’

Wood Witch: The Awakening is a 2015 American found-footage horror feature film about two couples stumble onto a local urban legend. Unfortunately, their camping trip turns into a nightmare when they discover they have inadvertently awoken a sleeping demon.

Written, co-produced and directed by Courtney G. Jones (Crossed Lines), the Pod Intermedia-Under The Wire Productions movie stars Ted Dowling (Grimm; Z Nation), Shannon Dowling (Ingress), Sydney Mitchell and Cameron Walsworth. Matt Berlin and Sarah N. Jones were co-producers.


Wood Witch: The Awakening was released on Amazon Prime USA in July 2020.


” … your typical bad found footage film. Maybe not Hinsdale House or Missing in Greenwood bad, but still not good, Granted at times the plot of Wood Witch: The Awakening gets so absurd and the creature is so goofy looking that I wondered if it was supposed to be a spoof of these films. But if it is, the film is still a failure because it isn’t funny either.” Voices from the Balcony
