WICKED WITCH cover image
Kudos to the student filmmaker for creating a very charming short film. I love the idea that costumes can come to life! The young girl in the film doesn't like her costume at first but after wielding her wand she discovers she has magical powers. I appreciate the imaginative plot and enjoyed the natural and simple acting.

This film is about a young girl, who we first see on her birthday as she complains to her dad that he gave her the wrong witch costume. However, once she gets over that and puts it on, something else happens and she changes her mind.

Ten-year-old Virginia Adams is the writer, director, producer and cast of this student made film and has created a pretty good film. There are some scenes, such as one with the dad in the living room, where the lighting is off, but for the most part, it is entirely watchable. I like how the movie incorporates witchcraft and shows the young girl being grateful for the gift her dad gave her. The camerawork is straightforward and adds to the realistic nature of the film. The sound effects help make the magical moments believable such as when the girl is practicing her witchcraft. The special effects are minimal, but they enhance the idea that the young girl has magical powers. The young girl takes a disappointing situation and makes the best out of it. What's wonderful is that she surprises herself when she discovers that she has magical powers and makes sure to tell her dad she is grateful for how things worked out. I really enjoyed Virginia Adams' performances as the young girl. Bravo!

The message of the film is to try to keep a positive attitude. You may be surprised with a wonderful outcome.

I give this film 3.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 12, plus adults. Reviewed by Calee N., KIDS FIRST!

A girl is disappointed that she gets the wrong witch costume but it turns out to be just what she wanted.
