Amelia’s Children (2024) ★★

Amelia's Children


When Edward’s search for his biological family leads him and his girlfriend Ryley to a magnificent villa high in the mountains of Northern Portugal, he is full of excitement at meeting his long-lost mother and twin brother. Finally, he will discover who he is and where he comes from. But nothing is as it seems, and Edward will soon learn that he is linked to them by a monstrous secret.


If you think your significant other has mommy issues, think again!

Amelia’s Children is another witch story that really goes nowhere new. Well-acted, well-shot, just nothing special. It was really hard to buy the entire witch backstory with any real grain of dread. The reveal towards the end of what’s hidden in the basement is just as unbelievable.

The diabolical character in this film (the mom/witch) is basically an older, trumped up version of a Jennifer Coolidge-esque character complete with a fucked up face and lip job.

While not a terrible film, Amelia’s Children just didn’t move me, scare me, or lull me into any real belief in the strange circumstances surrounding Edward’s family reunion.

Rating: ★★ (out of 5)
