One key element to reviewing movies is to take them for what they are. If you go in thinking that every horror movie is going to be Scream or Trick r’ Treat, you are more than likely going to end up a little disappointed. It’s easy to expect these things when we’re seeing advertisements during every other commercial break or reading about it consistently on our favorite website but when you get something that comes straight to DVD in the middle of April, remember to go in with your expectations within reach.
That being said, The Wicked is an amusing and entertaining teen thriller that is definitely aimed at the younger audience. It’s never truly frightening nor does it tread into the well known territory of topless females and unnecessary sex. We instead get teased with lots of shadows darting around in the peripherals and sexual innuendo but never to the point of frustration.
