The Reckoning (2020, dir. Neil Marshall)

A young widow is accused of witchcraft in 17th century England. A real disappointment: Marshall is a talented director (and there’s flashes of editing brilliance here), but his own duff and cliche-ridden script (co-written by star Kirk) and terrible lead actor compromise matters. At least old mate Sean Pertwee turns up for some ripe witch-hunting.

Here’s the trailer.
