So a few weeks ago we dropped a review for the supernatural thriller from Thomas Robert Lee THE CURSE OF AUDREY EARNSHAW. Filled with mysticism and pure evil from the well played lead role of Audrey (Jessica Reynolds) EARNSHAW is a solid take on a classic story of witches and a time once forgotten.
The best thing about EARNSHAW is Reynolds which we know sounds redundant but it is important. To hold so much of an entire film is tough to do but Reynolds is up to the challenge. A strong supporting cast helps as well but to make things click it all starts with her. What horror fans will enjoy about EARNSHAW is the notion that the witches are in control which is what we don't normally see. The film would fit along in the realm of the SALEM series that was on syndication as it showed a harsh character who had no qualms using her powers.
THE CURSE OF AUDREY EARNSHAW isn't your normal revenge thriller as forces the tide to be turned in such a way you won't know who to root for. While that is refreshing there was so much more about the history and lore of the witches that was lost. While it's nice to get dropped into such a mesmerizing tale of sorcery and deceit it's still nice to see how the whole show was put together.
