The movie is basically a mix between Stranger Things and Disturbia (?) i guess. It's like these 2 products had a baby and were mixed with a dash of witch spices. I didn't like that it really tries too much to be stranger things (or ride the ST bandwagon) but not like with the cool retro atmosphere more a witch setting this time. And very similar to Disturbia with a kid thinking something wrong with the neighboor. It's very basic, story is kinda unoriginal. I think it will please the casual suspense/horror fan because there are twists and when there are twists i always see people overhyping a movie cause they remember the gotcha! moment. But 90% of the movie is very basic stuff, acting was alright, some scenes went absolutely nowhere (Party scene why so long with the pointless pool scene) brings nothing to the story more than a few lines of exposition. The 35 year before intro scene did i miss something linking the two or that was just pointless filler? Some scenes kinda ripping off Stranger things It's alright pretty sure teens will dig it. I'm not trying to be snobbish but it's too teen drama/casual horror for me.
A defiant teenage boy, struggling with his parent's imminent divorce, faces off with a thousand year-old witch, who is living beneath the skin of and posing as the woman next door.
