Verdict on The Witch Part 2
The Witch Part 2 is an action horror movie that follows people with extraordinary powers. It sees how one young woman is looking to escape and others are trying to hunt her down. This leads to deadly confrontations with anyone they get close to.
The best way to describe this movie is a mix of X-Men and Brightburn. Showing the ever-growing power of the characters involved, that are strong, faster and deadlier than anyone they come across. Everything seems to play out like a normal lone survivor of an attack movie. Where they help the people that help them before a bigger showdown with the people that caused the problem.
This does feel like a movie that is left open for a third part, which could be entertaining to see where things go next. It never holds back on the action sequences, which are brutal as they unfold. However, it the darker side of the action gets caught in the middle of brutal realism and superhero over the top.
Where to Watch: Signature Entertainment presents The Witch: Part 2 on Digital Platforms 28th November
Final Thoughts – The Witch Part 2 is a brutally violent twist on the superpower’s genre.
