Amish Witches: The True Story of Holmes County – Lifetime – 2 hours and 2 minutes
A small sect of Schwartzentruber Amish women (Ester, Ruthie, Katie Ann, and Iva) decided to let a camera crew film them to document their lives. The crew consist of Conor (Producer), A.J. (Production Assistant), Dave (Audio Engineer), and Will (Camera Man). Once the crew arrives, they are quickly met and somewhat welcomed. But production is halted when the grandmother of Katie Ann dies. The grandmother was shunned because she was a Brauchau, an Amish witch, and will not be buried on consecrated in a white dress. She was buried in black and no one attended … not even the bishop. After the burial, strange events happened to each of the women that could not be explained. So the women belives it is because of the crew and ask them to leave. However things get worst and they ask the crew to come back. With things getting stranger, the women decided they must fix it by pleasing the deceased grandmother. It’s time to get the shovel and make it right. But can they do it in time.
Sigh. This mixture of Paranormal Activity and The Blair Witch Project, is not scary as much as it is creepy or weird (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). It’s another attempt from Lifetime to capitalize on Halloween and it’s Real Witches special. If you get motion sick, be careful watching this “found footage” movie. The camera angles are often shaky and out of focus. This could be a background noise movie, but there are subtitles because the Amish sometimes speak Pennsylvania Dutch. If you like creepy … not interesting … this is ok to watch and kill some time. But not the best for Lifetime.
