Critic Reviews for The Witch in the Window

All Critics (6)

The Witch In The Window is a deliberately slow-paced, quietly sorrowful film about a man trying to reconnect with his family. By prioritizing character development, Mitton has crafted an emotionally rich film that...has the capacity to chill.

October 6, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The Witch in the Window is unlikely to become the next big sleeper hit, but then it doesn't aspire to be - it aspires to tell a good scary story.

September 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Straightforward with a coda so telegraphed that it loses whatever emotional epiphany it was meant to deliver, The Witch in the Window is obvious, predictable, and stilted in its worst moments.

August 30, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The Witch in the Window is a valiant stab at injecting new life into an old and familiar tale.

August 23, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Mitton's film never goes where you expect, while deploying its horror tropes to show the cracks and fissures in contemporary America's nuclear family structure. Its ending, so poignantly bittersweet, is very hard-earned...

August 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Mitton's handling of the supernatural elements - casually introduced and incorporated into the edges of domestic experience - proves extremely unsettling, even as everything shifts towards a hard-earned poignancy that is both haunting and sublime.
