A burned-out ex-Navy SEAL and an emotionally-damaged firefighter work together as handymen in rural Virginia. Things turn weird when a renovation job becomes a journey to another world to rescue their client from a witch bent on revenge…


” …Pungo: A Witch’s Tale is an enjoyably silly film. But with a few tweaks to the script could have been a good bit better. At an hour and forty-one minutes, it’s about ten minutes too long for starters […] But if you don’t mind that and some Asylum level CGI mixed in with the better stuff, Pungo: A Witch’s Tale will keep you amused.” Voices from the Balcony
