Witches, cannibalism and creepy towns, all in the magical, Easter-filled month of March! If you are a person who loves horror 12 months of the year, you might enjoy “The Wicked,” Image Entertainment’s latest offering. The film, directed by Peter Winther and stars Devon Werkheiser (“Beneath the Darkness”), Justin Deeley (“90210”), Nicole Forester (“The Double”), and Cassie Keller (“A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas”) will be on DVD April 30 and also available for digital download.

As I alluded to above, the film is all about finding human-eating witches in a weird town. What’s more horrendous is that the witches don’t just eat any humans–they eat the flesh of children:

“Local stories warn that deep in the woods, a witch with a ravenous hunger feeds on the flesh of the young. In an abandoned house in the woods, she hunts her victims…and if you try to enter, you’ll never see daylight again. When another child goes missing, a group of local teenagers decide to find out if the urban legend is true. What starts out as a meaningless dare turns into a blood-spattered fight for survival against a mistress of darkness in this unrelenting nightmare from which you may never wake up!”

If you buy the DVD, you’ll also be able to see the behind-the-scenes featurette “No Soul is Safe: The Making of ‘The Wicked.’”
