Movie Info

Young Audrey Earnshaw (Jessica Reynolds) and her mother, Agatha (Catherine Walker, A DARK SONG), live clandestinely as occultists on the outskirts of a remote Protestant village. Having gone to enormous lengths to hide Audrey's existence from the community over the years, in part due to her having been born in secrecy, in a context that would never have been accepted by the superstitious townspeople, Agatha kept her close and guarded at home. As a consequence, a controlling relationship has developed. One day, a mourner from town catches sight of Audrey, and whispers begin. The community has recently been left reeling from a series of inexplicable tragedies and hardships. Now, livestock and crops are falling prey to an unknown disease. Somehow, the Earnshaw farm has remained unaffected. Suspicions grow. Hysteria mounts. Meanwhile, Audrey's upbringing around ritual magic has borne fruit. Her abilities are blossoming, becoming stronger and more forceful by the day. Alongside her anger.

As an exercise in world-building, this is pretty evocative and impressive stuff.

Hits some notes well but never really generates an overall sense of dread.

The story of The Curse of Audrey Earnshaw is unapologetically slight, and there are a few moments where it seems to sacrifice a cohesive, tightly constructed narrative in favor of cultivating a sense of atmosphere.

If the screenplay, the performances, and the direction of a film are the ingredients of a spell meant to bewitch the audience, The Curse of Audrey Earnshaw could have used double the toil and trouble to make that cauldron really burn and bubble.

February 28, 2021 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Canadian Folk horror about an outcast woman suspected of witchcraft and her daughter. Set in 1973, but doesn't look like it. Wonderful cast and atmosphere, but real issues with the writing.

February 13, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Ripe with tension and bloody practical special effects that should satisfy the genre lover but more than that it mines the very timely idea of isolation.
