House of the Witch (2017) surprised me for getting to it rather quickly since many horror films from the last decade took their sweet time and when it came to the climax I was already spent.
It felt like it wished it was made in the 80s with a few slices of cheese thrown around. However, for the most part, it was a straight shooter with good visual effects that were creepy and intense. The acting in House of the Witch is a lot better than I ever expected.
The one thing that disappointed me was that a few characters said they were going to throw up, but they didn’t. They only coughed and gagged as though it could happen at any second. Had they not focused on these instances, I probably wouldn’t have noticed. When the camera followed them, I expected it.
From the moment House of the Witch started, the tempo was quick, which I assumed meant there wouldn’t be any way to increase the intensity or creepy effects, but I was wrong because the ending happened. I think it has to be one of the most unexpected endings I’ve seen in many years.
House of the Witch kept the excitement going from beginning to and is the reason I give it 4.5 out of 5 Stars.
