When it comes to witches, it’s really hard to not picture the classic get-up used in The Wizard of Oz. The pointy hat … the green skin … it’s just classic stuff, man. However, truly evil witches aren’t played for camp value. In fact, they can be downright frightening.
The Wicked, directed by Peter Winther from a screenplay by Michael Vickerman, is on its way to next month’s AFM, and we’ve got the first details here for you!
Justin Deeley, Devon Werkheiser, and Nicole Forester star.
“Season of the Equinox, the witch besets her kill. One less soul in the town to know, taken against their will.” It is a bedtime story nearly every kid in the small town of Summerset has heard. A silly story passed down from generation to generation that offers just enough chills to keep the legend alive. This year is different. Seven-year-old Amanda Drake is swiped from her bedroom window. Rumors swirl. The Witch has returned. Always up for a good fright, and a chance to impress the girls, 18-year-old Zach and his friends decide to sneak into the woods and find the mysterious old house where the legendary Witch supposedly lives. Unbeknownst to Zach, his younger brother, Max, and Max’s “girlfriend,” Sammy, sneak along. They all soon discover that folklore isn’t always myth and that bedtime stories sometimes come true. The Witch has indeed returned, intent on casting her magical spells to deceive.
