It's Jordyn's (Paulie Rojas) 18th birthday ... and when celebrating, Aunt Ruth (Nancy Wolfe), the bible-thumping woman who brought her up lovelessly, tries to disembowel herself without warning. Jordyn, her boyfriend Donny (David Landry) and her roommate Kym (Lillian Pennypacker) manage to save her and get her into emergency against all odds, but things turn odd for Jordyn from here on ... and it's not just the traumatic experience of witnessing an almost-suicide, it's that she wakes up at places without knowing how she got there, it's having visions of being possessed by a demon (Maria Olsen), it's finding Donny and Kym, the two people she trusted, having sex in her apartment ... but most of all it's her finding a co-worker (Michael Rappaport) murdered, and finding out on security camera only that she herself did it. So what's happening? Ironically, only her unloving bible-thumping aunt Ruth can help her now, as she knows of a family secret that's darker than just black ...

 

Now if you want your horror explained away in easily digestable bites, Mark of the Witch is probably not for you, as part of the attraction of this movie is that it stays mysterious throughout, remains intentionally open to interpretation, and focuses on atmosphere rather than narrative logic - and by now and again abandoning narrative logic for the sake of some truly eerie moments, the movie in fact only really comes into its own, as it after a time deliberately follows the logic of a nightmare - and what could work better in horror? Well, of course that the film's cinematic language is really up to the job, as is its ensemble cast, doesn't hurt terribly either.

Quite an experience, actually!
