Consensus: Witch Hunt's smart social commentary is undercut by its lack of original storytelling ideas, but this supernatural horror outing has just enough bite to recommend for teens.

All in all, this is a horror that's neither clever nor scary.

While it falls short of the high expectations set in its first act, Witch Hunt remains a smart, memorable film with captivating performances from Adlon and Cowen.
