The Wretched (2019, dir. The Pierce Brothers)

A troubled teen comes to believe that his neighbour is a witch. Okay horror flick that plays with a few well-established sets of tropes and images but which manages to do so in a way that feels fresh enough. An interesting marina location helps, as does an unfamiliar cast and some very solid practical effects work.
