Pyewacket

After her father dies, Leah (Nicole Muñoz), a teenage girl, is forced to move to a house in the woods by her unstable mother. In the house, Leah finds a book of black magic and begins to study it. Feeling trapped and hopeless, she naively performs an occult ritual to evoke the spirit of a witch to kill her mother.

Stricken by guilt, Leah desperately tries to reverse the spell, but soon realizes she has awoken something in the woods, and nothing can prepare Leah for the terror she has unleashed.
