The Wicked is a 2013 American horror film directed by Peter Winther.

A quartet of teenagers decide to investigate a house called Open Hearth that, according to legend, houses a child-eating witch. They throw rocks at the house, and later on that night the witch begins to hunt them.

This movie contains examples of the following tropes:

  • Burn the Witch!: The ultimate solution. Or is it?
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: The witch runs Tracy and Carter through a meat grinder feet-first before eating them.
  • The End... Or Is It?: Although the house is destroyed, it's hinted at the end that the witch is still hunting children.
  • Hot Witch: The titular witch once she regains her youth she's revealed to be actually a quite beautiful woman.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: The witch eats children; girls for beauty, boys for strength.

  • Police Are Useless: The cops reject the teens' first call for help as a prank, and Deputy Karl only gets involved when Sammy threatens him with blackmail.
  • Wicked Witch: Take a guess.
  • The Witch Hunter: Turns out Max's grandpa used to be one of these.
