It pretty much promises to be a weekend in hell for Kate (Persephone
Apostolou): Her sister Rose (Danika Golombek) whom she never got along
with is getting married, which forces Kate to hook up with her
dysfunctional family again, part of them incorrigible boozers, part of
them almost fanatic anti-alcoholics - and Kate's ex Cody (Mike Jones) is
along for the ride since she hasn't told anybody they've broken up yet.
She also hasn't told anybody (including Cody) she's pregnant yet. On top
of that the wedding is to take place on some remote island with no
cellphone reception, and Rose is getting married to a woman, weird goth
girl Aggie (Megan Hensley), according to some Wiccan ritual, as she and
her family are descendants of the "witches" of Salem. Thank God
then for aunt Paula (Macall Gordon), who always has some weed on her and
who's always willing to share ...
Thing though is, Aggie's folks have
ulterior motives and thus have drugged the wine and food the night before
the wedding, as their practices as witches involve human sacrifices and
cannibalism. Now because of her condition, Kate is the only one who
couldn't touch wine or food - but she's one against many, so she's also
far from being in the clear, and the witches of the island aren't likely
to let her go just like that ...
7 Witches might not be
telling the most original of stories - but it does so in a very original
and highly suspenseful way, using a host of colourful characters embodied
by a very capable cast to carry the story, and giving them room to breathe
thanks to its deliberately laid back pace, that's ever so often
interrupted by well-placed shocks or macabre details, and abandoned for a
rather furious finale, but above all, the whole thing lives thanks to its
highly atmospheric direction which makes perfect use of its locations and
doesn't shy away from horror mainstays if necessary, but without seeming
In all, a pretty cool trip to nightmare land!
