Loud music & SFX do not a scary movie make. The sound track is completely over the top and ham fisted. The film feels like a play crossed with a made-for-TV horror movie.

Ominous music is way too loud, and strained. All in all the plot was predictable and trite.

Whene people talk about cinematography, they obviously haven't seen this film yet. I'm so fr*cking interested in watching this movie. Innovation happened right here in 2015 with the witch. Top ten.

The story unfolds with such subtlety you are unsure if this is a case of religious hysteria or the literal hand of Satan. For greatest effect watch it after sitting in a ...Read more
