BEWARE THE WITCH HOUSE IN ‘THE WICKED’ TRAILER

Source: Dread Central, The Wicked Facebook Page

If, like me, you grew up in a small town, there was always that one ramshackle old shunned house that inspired horrific myths and legends. That one house the kids would avoid and parents would speak of in hushed whispers. Over time, as the legend grew, some of the braver (or more foolish depending on how you look at it) kids in town would break in or throw rocks at it’s edifice. Out of such tales comes the micro-budget indy horror film THE WICKED. Directed by Peter Winther and written by Michael Vickerman, the film stars  Devon Werkheiser, Justin Deeley, Jess Adams, Diana Hopper, Jackelyn Gauci, Chase Maser, Caitlin Carmichael and Jamie Kaler.

Synopsis:

The Wicked is the story of a witch who lives in a haunted old house in woods. Story has it, she survived the witch hunt of the 1700’s. A story passed down from generations, it is believed by the town’s people that if you throw a rock and break her window…”The Wicked” will get you! 

The old folklore is revisited when a 7 year old girl turns up missing from her home The rumor around town was that the little girl had broken the witch’s window the night before.

“THE SEASON OF THE EQUINOX, THE WITCH BESETS HER KILL. ONE LESS SOUL THE TOWN TO KNOW, TAKE AGAINST THEIR WILL.”
