The Reviews for The Witch in the Window (2018) 720p

Malice that should have been strongerReviewed byTheLittleSongbirdVote: 5/10

Was pretty intrigued by the concept, which may not have been a new one but there was potential for it to be a creepy film if done right. The title is simple but certainly grabs the attention and is to the point. Some of my horror reviews recently sound indicates someone who dislikes the horror genre, quite the contrary, it's not my favourite genre but there are many watchable and more (even classic) films in it and there is appreciation for it (as with all genres old and new).

'The Witch in the Window' is certainly nowhere near close to being one of my worst recent film viewings and have definitely seen far worse throughout my life. However, a classic 'The Witch in the Window' is not and have also seen much better films recently. It is another one of those watchable films that doesn't quite do enough with its potential but doesn't squander it, which was a relief for me having seen a lot of potential wastes and was growing tired of them.

Starting with the good things, 'The Witch in the Window' does provide unsettlement visually, with ominous photography that has slickness if not always refinement. The setting and lighting similarly are spooky. It is hauntingly scored and there is evidence of focus and momentum in the directing.

Once it gets going, 'The Witch in the Window' does boast a good amount of skin-crawling suspense and unsettling scares. As well as a surprising emotional impact in a quietly sorrowful sort of way, there is evidence of character development here and while not rich it was hardly surface level. Actually found myself caring for the lead characters and their story, which did give the film its heart. The acting is pretty decent too.

However, 'The Witch in the Window' does take too long to get going and set up with a pretty dull first 20-25 minutes that could easily have been tightened. Worse was the ending, which on top of being too easily telegraphed too early was very rushed and muddled, as well as going overboard on the bitter-sweetness.

Much more could have been done with the titular character, who should have been the star of the show but the way she is utilised and written is one of the biggest drawbacks. She is scary but has a back-story that is badly under-developed with too many things on an explanation level left unclear and then confused when explanation is attempted. Throughout the dialogue is very stilted.

Altogether, watchable but lacking in too many areas. 5/10 Bethany Cox

Startles in Some Moments, but In General is a Weak Horror FilmReviewed byclaudio_carvalhoVote: 5/10

The low-budget "The Witch in the Window" is a movie that startles in some moments, but in general is a weak horror film. The beginning is dramatic and it takes too much time to have the first horror scene, which is worthwhile watching. There is not much development of the witch and the viewer never learns why she is trapped to the house. The protagonist Finn is ridiculous going to bed with a Ted bear. The poor conclusion is rushed, confused and predictable. My vote is five.

Enjoyable if slightly underwhelmed drama/horror effortReviewed bykannibalcorpsegrinderVote: 8/10

Taking a trip into up North, a father and his young son intending to use the trip to flip a property he owns into a bonding experience between them, but as they begin to fix up the house a series of strange events causes them to believe that the locals' witch stories might be real.

This wasn't all that bad of an effort. One of the strongest points of this one is the rather fine way this dives into the family dynamics between the two which is at the heart of the film. As the opening shots of this immediately giving us the idea of a strained relationship at the heart of the film, from their inability to really get an idea of each others' likes and dislikes or the outright disapproval of their trip which is further enhanced by the events showcased once they arrive. Although you can tell it picks up nicely between them as the two develop a somewhat closer bond over time, the fact that we still get to see him blow up at the kid for totally unwarranted situations still manages to ring true here. Most of the events in the second half where it becomes far more obvious that something's in the house with them all stem from the idea of trying to protect the kid which gives them far more potency and impact. Once that occurs, this one picks up rather nicely with the fine ability to showcase some really enjoyable scenes here. The early idea of the haunted farmhouse, from them hearing rattling in the walls or in the basement to the boxes being found in different places than where they left them really help to give this a strong atmosphere already before it even brings up the ghostly legend of the area. That helps to tie into the freaky sequences in the second half, where they actually encounter it sitting in the chair in the fabled room unresponsive to anything and then chasing them out of the house in one of the better scenes in here. Another rapid-fire series of scenes in the final half twisting around a tender moment between them is a fine jump, and the melancholia of the ending is certainly well-deserved. As well as the great location-work to make the house itself seem creepy and foreboding in its unassuming matter, these here work nicely to hold this up over its flaws. The main problem to be had here is the rather obvious low-key approach to the material that can turn some off. This isn't explosive or action-packed in the slightest, even with the shortened running time as the family drama over the first half is the main focus of the film. Taking on more of bonding, reconnecting style of presentation rather than going for more of a horror atmosphere that could've been developed with the idea of the witch haunting the house. The lack of real supernatural demonstrations and overt witchcraft dealings that most normally expect in such efforts are totally missing here and somewhat stall this one from what it could've offered which isn't a detriment to the film at all for that might be a positive in some regards. Still, it's an overriding issue here and one that should be brought up.

Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Language and Mild Violence.
