Movie Info

Faith's world is turned upside down after she finds out that her beloved father is dying. When the mysteriously alluring Sissy Young becomes her field hockey coach, Faith finds a compassionate spirit and much-needed mother figure. Little does she know that Sissy is the head of a centuries-old witches' coven that uses the fruit of an ancient cherry tree in a secret ritual that restores life to the dead and dying. Offering to cure her father in exchange for a child, Sissy strikes a bargain with Faith, who suddenly finds herself pregnant with a baby that's growing at an alarming rate. But with the clock to the child's birth ticking down and the true intention of Sissy's plans for humanity becoming more apparent, Faith and her father must stand together in order to save both their lives. From David Keating, the critically acclaimed director of Wake Wood.

Critic Reviews for Cherry Tree

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

This ungainly B movie makes virtually no sense in terms of either mythology or basic plotting.

January 5, 2016 | Full Review…

For all its technical prowess, this is an anemic, nonsensical horror opus that seldom goes anywhere of interest, everything building to a terribly unsatisfying conclusion that's forgettable and bland.

August 16, 2016 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Cherry Tree is a story of witchcraft that's stuck on fast-forward as it zooms ahead with a disappointing attention to plotting (in favor of gore and centipedes).

January 6, 2016 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

...instead of developing a believable story or characters that behave in recognizably human ways, it tries to buy off the audiences with images of bare breasts, creepy insects, and lots of graphic, gory body horror.

December 10, 2015 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

You may go in... hoping for the baroque irrationality of Dario Argento's Suspiria, the stylised mother of all witchcraft movies, but what you get instead is something closer to the shrill silliness of Suspiria's belated sequel The Mother of Tears.

Coasts along at such an energetic clip that it's hard to not have a little fun with all the crazy witch madness.
