Pyewacket

Critics Consensus

Pyewacket builds its atmospheric, patiently encroaching chills on a well-told story concerned more with emotional trauma than supernatural threats.

Audience Reviews for Pyewacket

  • Sep 24, 2020
    Surly goth teenagers dabbling in the occult have become a horror movie cliché, but with Adam MacDonald's followup to his excellent debut Backcountry, it is an effective and compelling slow burn. With great performances from the leads (including Laurie Holden of The Mist and The Walking Dead), it explores what happens when a troubled teen follows up on her darkest wish. The final act is creepy and disturbing even though it comes to an abrupt end too early leaving us wanting more.
