Omari cannot act. The story wasn’t good. The movie felt like it didn’t want to fully commit to its own premise. All around. Waste of money.

The performances in this film of Spell are exceptional great and as a horror film excellent storytelling and well researched in the subjects of hoo-doo( which is still in use and believe me works but not as the film portrays) this would have been good with awards for the special effects and original story. Great cast all around. I enjoyed this film quite well.

The angst it spreads throughout feels all too mild and forgettable to cast an unnerving curse. You know, the kind you’d crave from a horror film with lasting scares.

Heavy on oppressively humid atmosphere and light on originality, the film is a mostly forgettable genre exercise whose viewers won't miss much by watching at home.

There’s a cinematic slickness to the film (it was intended to be released theatrically until the pandemic) that separates it from its more noticeably shoddier fright night competitors but it’s mostly a familiar, if not entirely fruitless, trudge down a well-trodden path, one that takes us into, at times, questionable territory.
