A short horror web series by Filmmaker (Vahagn Karapetyan)
Said to be the first horror series out of Greece
This is a story about Wicca book. The book which devil plagued mankind with suffering. The all-powerful book of the Witches. But wherever there was evil, wherever an innocent would suffer, there would be Mia.
“I had the distinct pleasure of viewing three chapters of Wicca Book and they certainly did not disappoint”reviewshorror.com
The first chapter serves as an introduction to the first character. With a knock on his front door we are introduced to the Wicca Book itself The young man opens his door to find a parcel wrapped in a black bag with a simple note “it’s yours” none the wiser he opens it and as he carelessly flicks through the pages ominous sounds increasingly alarm him. Soon it becomes clearer that the Book when read opens a gateway unleashing evil sucking the person’s soul into its very pages.
The second chapter is actually prequel to the first and introduces us to Mia in startling fashion as she awakes from a nightmare. This chapter also serves as to the origin of how she became in possession of the Book. A group including Mia are exploring a cave system when she comes across a pentagram on the wall and unearths the Book and put it in her bag but after a frightening shock of seeing her name in blood on her bathroom mirror then a note on the book. Mia heeds the warnings and follows the instruction leaving the black plastic wrapped book with a note on a neighbouring door and runs.
The third chapter has Mia discover more about the book and the cursed thing she has awoken The only way she can stop the evil from being unleashed. She must return it once again to the cave in which she unearthed it. While undertaking this task Mia finds herself fighting for her life against the evil trying to prevent her from completing the task.
The hope is that this becomes a regular series and I believe it to should be a highly sought-after franchise. The storyline and direction are not the only things I appreciated out of this series but also the cinematography and the acting performance. Having no spoken dialogue I found opens the senses to all other aspects of the series. The Three chapters together are under 23 minutes of screentime but I certainly enjoyed more than some overrated films the go for over 90 minutes.
“This really was a remarkable and compelling series. I sincerely hope that there will be more episodes to come in the future”reviewshorror.com
