3.0 out of 5 stars DVD Review: "The Wicked" April 29 2013
By ERSInk . com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Every town in America has their version of "The Wicked." They're the weird person, house, or other location kids whisper about amongst themselves in fear and parents use to threaten their children with. It's the old house on the hill everyone walks faster by on the way home from school or the old man or woman we're told not to talk to.

Director Peter Winther and writer Michael Vickerman put together a fun little indie film that is only hindered by shoddy CGI and a wavering sense of who it was made for. "The Wicked" is an extended episode of R.L. Stine's "The Haunting Hour" until we get one or two sequences of sexuality and dialogue littered with bad language. Movies like this always leave me shaking my head in wonder. If they tone down those elements or omit them, they would have a PG-13 film that more people could enjoy.

The title character (Cassie Keller) would make any person feel anxious or frightened. She's a witch who maintains her beauty through devouring children. The legend goes that if you visit her house in the woods and break one of its windows, she will come for you.

"The Wicked" is both a coming-of-age tale like "The Goonies" or "The Monster Squad" and a slasher flick like "Urban Legend" or "I Know What You Did Last Summer." There are two sets of main characters. First, we have two life-long teenage friends, Devon Werkheiser ("Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide") and Diana Hopper, in that awkward state where they start to have feelings for each other. Secondly, we have the hip sex-crazed high schoolers who are always looking for a new thrill.

The CGI is at best on the same level as any number of fantasy shows from the late 1990s and early 2000s. They definitely don't blend seamlessly with their surroundings. I do want to give props to the practical effects supervisors. The Wicked's makeup and the gore effects look great and made me cringe a few times.

The packaging for the DVD promises a featurette entitled "No Soul is Safe: The Making of 'The Wicked." I've searched the main menu and looked for it under the scene selections tab. It's nowhere to be found. A little background on how the movie came about would be interesting.

Although it has its flaws, "The Wicked" is still an entertaining horror tale that many viewers will nostalgically identify with. If you can just get past the weak CGI and delve into the story, you'll enjoy yourself. They should do a PG-13 and an R-rated version of the movie to reach both age ranges. I could see this playing on Teen Nick and the Chiller Channel simultaneously.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the right movie. Dec 18 2013
By mamaursula - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
There is no current movie starring Kenneth Brannagh and Tom Hiddleston by this name. Buyer beware. I have not purchased this, but I believe it to be fraudulent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Creepy and fun May 22 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Technically, Wicked is not a good movie. The acting is weak, the plot predictable and the story is derivative. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it. There are a few enjoyable twists with how a couple of the characters play out - still predictable but cathartic.

I watched this movie alone due to my wife not being a fan of horror, but I expect this would be more fun to watch with friends with copious amounts of popcorn. It's creepy but most probably won't lose sleep over it.

One review mentioned that the movie took awhile to really get started. I have to agree. If the writer had done a better job of tying some of the back story elements with the main thread it would have been a better movie. In this case, most of what occurs in the first half could have been compressed into dialogue between the characters.

We have to be a bit forgiving when it comes to horror movies because there is not much to choose from unless you are a fan of torture movies like Saw or Hostel. Until movie studios start taking horror seriously again, true horror fans have to accept movies like The Wicked.

4.0 out of 5 stars WHERE ARE THE CHILDREN? May 4 2013
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is another Hansel and Gretel type of film with a legendary wicked witch who lives in the forest and devours children. In the opening scene young Amanda (Caitlin Carmichael) is in tears, afraid that "The Wicked" is going to get her. It was a very convincing scene, A+ for Miss Carmichael. Once she goes missing, our 4 teenage heroes plus 2 go in the woods and camp out near the witches house who they arouse during the very deadly spring equinox.

The film did an effective job of building character of our main players with some brief moments and conversations. I thought the witch scenes could have been done better as they were an inconsistent hit and miss going from the overly supernatural to just a plain gore slasher. It really doesn't effectively work both ways. A decent Redbox rental, might make it to my collection when the price drops. Takes place in Orono, Michigan.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, brief sex and skinny dipping scene and brief nudity.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not to shabby May 29 2013
By Jason J. Mininger - Published on Amazon.com

Overall not a bad flick. Was it a little corny at times? Yes. Could they have named the witch something other than "the Wicked"? Definitely. It's a B movie, as in low budget. Don't go in with lofty expectations and you wont be disappointed. The reality is if you want to watch a neat movie with a decent plot (so rare these days) check this movie out. If you think you are the second coming of Rodger Ebert I would avoid this film.
