As their big day approaches, Cate and Cody should be celebrating, but when a 100-year-old curse comes to fruition, they find themselves fighting for their lives as a witch comes back for revenge.
“7 Witches bares some resemblance to last year’s hit The Witch; not in plot but in cinematic feel. This flick is filled with beautiful shots of nature and scenic wonders, all shrouded in a dark atmosphere filled with despair. The look and feel of this flick are always in contrast with each other, beauty and love being out-shined by vengeance and death. Cinematographer Ryan Purcell gets a lot of credit here for mastering this effect into a wonderful piece of art. 7 Witches feels earthy and primitive and uncertain, which fits in thematically with elements of witchcraft. It’s actually kind of sad to see the good family torn apart during this celebration and that’s just the thing – there’s not a lot of happiness here. Due to the way the movie looks and feels, due to the plot of deceit building against the good characters, this is far from a joyous occasion and 7 Witches isn’t the film you should watch if you’re looking for a happy ending. It’s a dark and stormy bloodbath.”
