Critic Reviews for Pyewacket
A horror-lite film that barely increases the heart rate.
The heavy-handed score, narrow performances and weak dialogue all fail to justify a provocative ending that overturns the exorcising conventions of the genre.
When it comes to staking out a place for himself in that spectrum, MacDonald occupies a bland centre - stuck in the middle with ewww.
But one of Pyewacket's triumphs is the way it keeps its horrors grounded in reality, and its character in the forefront, proving you can be both smart and pretty scary; a good lesson for the genre.
MacDonald is trying to be a filmmaker of ideas here, but the metaphor doesn't develop or deepen as the film goes on.
