    This film is fearless in that it is not scary. Like at all! The acting is unimpressive, the story is uninteresting, the monster is uninspiring. There are plenty of horror movie tropes and the "twist ending" is passionless. Don't waste your 90 minutes.

    Take equal parts "Disturbia," "Sixth Sense," "Blair Witch Project" and a dash of pagan-swamp-witchery and you've got "The Wretched." Viewers are treated to a sliver of horrific backstory before diving into a coming-of-age story. While the story is interesting, setting is kinda' creepy and the acting good, the movie just never seems to come alive. The potential is there and it's primed for a second installment, but I felt disappointed. No explanation as to 'what' or 'why' was offered up (maybe that's coming in the sequel/prequel). So, I felt left out of the terror and horror of it all. It's a movie left in an unfortunate state and for that, it is aptly named.

    A really well done and unique take on the cult demon genre. Plenty of good, scary fun but never dives deep into why the possession is happening, who summoned the creature, etc. Had the filmmakers added that element, would have been perfect.

    The acting started off pretty weak but got better pretty quick. Turns out to be a good flick if you can hang in there through the first bit.

    The Wretched certainly isn't replete with effective thrills or chills so it greatly struggles as a horror entry. Audiences have seen this premise before but the filmmakers in this instance don't insert fresh ideas, unique story elements or even an effectively frightening monster. Even with the film's lack of impression on me I still greatly admire how the creative behind this flick were able to craft this film with only 66,000 dollars.

    Take all the worn out concepts of all the past horror movies but execute them well and you still have a movie worth watching. You could do far worse than this movie and it all together holds together.

    Mais um filme comum...com todos os clichês.....fala sobre possessão e a partir daí as pessoas esquecem as outras.

    I was stoked for The Wretched as it was one of the first mainstream movies released straight to VOD after a month of pandemic lockdown. It started great ... the usual horror-movie prologue was gripping and disturbing. The story was intriguing and mildly original with a "Rear Window" sub-plot that works well. And the creature effects were outstanding. Unfortunately, the lead protagonist was dull and annoyingly selfish to the point that it dragged most of the movie down with him, redemption arc notwithstanding.

    A tree witch is collecting children by making families forget they exist whilst wearing people's skin.
