Superstition ★★★½

Haunted house + witchcraft, an incomplete ritual with fatal consequences. The movie reminded me of a time when cobwebs and fog, shadows lurking all nosferatu-like and floating hands that seemed to materialize out of nowhere were essentials in horror, goes to show just how much the genre has evolved. The acting is wooden but the deaths/gore are fun, some even jaw dropping (bouncing saw!!). It was disappointing how the scene in the poster was not included in the film though, it looked pretty neat.

Overall, slow, silly but surprisingly watchable. I like it. #15
