A Wicked Within Movie Info:.
After a year passes since the sudden death of a child. a family gathering takes place whilst peculiar unexplainable events occur. Tension over peculiar circumstances cracks the veneer of cordiality and dark secrets emerge. Bethany (Sienna Guillory) becomes increasingly unhinged and seems Hell bent on tearing her family apart. Is she possessed or simply playing devils advocate? With the help of a priest and a psychic the family attempts to restore peace and sanity. But events which occur that night could never have been foreseen. Police psychologist Dr Woods (Eric Roberts) tries to exact fact from fiction of what really took place in the house in this gothic horror morality tale.
Jay Alaimo’s The Wicked Within, penned by Stephen Wallis. is the sort of old school scarer that utilizes familiar horror-movie tropes and practical effects that remain appealing even by today’s CGI-heavy standards. The story is built around that favorite of horror film. grief. Last year saw Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook use the subject of grief to such devastating effect. and while The Wicked Within doesn’t reach the lofty heights of that critical hit, it certainly has a go.
The film opens on a woman being rushed to hospital. and where we first meet Bethany (Sienna Guillory). How she came to be hospitalized is just one of several mysteries that need to be solved by police psychologist Dr Woods (Eric Roberts). We go back a couple of days to a small gathering of family and friends. What starts out as a seemingly pleasant evening of smalltalk. good food and wine, ends with a possessed Bethany tied to a chair and all the friends being forced to confess their many sins. leaving each of them devastated.- Written by Writer.
