I have been meaning to watch this. I've heard many good things about it. That it's not your typical horror movie. It's a slow burner with a different style to it. That's it doesn't really on jump scares, but it tries to be genuinely creepy as hell. This looks to be the first outting for writer director Robert Eggers. I swear a lot of first time directors are really making a name for themselves as ... read more
View all The Witch reviews
A colonial family leaves plantation life and attempts to reap their harvest on a fledgling farm at the edge of an imposing ancient New England forest. Soon, superstition and dread set in as food grows scarce, a family member goes missing, and the children's play takes on a frenzied and menacing undercurrent. As they begin to turn on one another, the malevolent machinations of an ethereal presence from within the woods exacerbate the growing corruption of their own natures.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- June 2016 (30 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 32min. First Viewing It does contain some of my greatest issues with indie-horror films (style and vagueness in place of character development and story), but it's made so well, with so many quality thrills and style, that its worth a look. The cast is strong, with Anya Taylor-Joy giving a breakout performance, but this is a director's movie and Eggers shows off quite well, even with the problems I mentioned."

Interesting film facts (453 movies items)

"The characters frequently accuse each other of 'signing the book', and a book is offered to Katherine and Thomasin to sign by Black Phillip. In Puritan theology, a person recorded a covenant with the Devil by signing, or making their mark, in the Devil's book "with pen and ink" or with blood. Only with such signing, according to the beliefs of the time, did a person actually become a witch and gain demonic powers, such as appearing in spectral form to do harm to another. Although the film's plo"

20 Favorite Movies From 2016 (20 movies items)

" "Wouldst thou like to live deliciously?" Motherfucking Black Phillip. 2016 was a good year for horror movies, and this is my favorite by far. Atmosphere in this movie is amazing, it's just the way it should be for a horror movie. Everything looks great, and very well made, I just didn't like the ending very much. It's a good family drama too."

30 Favorite Films of 2016 (30 movies items)

"If this is Dave Eggars' first film, I can only imagine the greatness that awaits in his future of filmmaking. With impeccable pacing, the dread and foreboding atmosphere builds to a suffocating degree. The sense of time and place rings with authenticity, as if we have literally been transported back in time. It's almost flawless in what it sets out to do, and doesn't compromise-- audience comfort be damned. Then of course there is Black Philip, if ever an animal deserved awards recognition, it's"

" Director: Robert Eggers Starring: Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie, Harvey Scrimshaw, Ellie Grainger and Lucas Dawson In 1630 New England, panic and despair envelops a farmer, his wife and four of their children when youngest son Samuel suddenly vanishes. The family blames Thomasin, the oldest daughter who was watching the boy at the time of his disappearance. With suspicion and paranoia mounting, twin siblings Mercy and Jonas suspect Thomasin of witchcraft, testing the clan's faith"

" The Witch is a film that looks like its been helmed by a director who has spent 30 years in the industry and slowly over time managed to perfect his craft. Yet, this is a film that's been made by a first-time director. This is pretty damned impressive. The Witch is a quality film. With a lingering sense of dread running throughout the entire film, The Witch embraces our fear of what's to come and the uncertainty of where the story is going to go. With great characters that falls further and fu"

Top 10 Films of 2015 (10 movies items)

" On the rare occasion that a horror film comes out that prioritizes subtlety and mood-building over gratuitous gore (which can be fun sometimes, don't get me wrong) and jump-scares, it's worth seeing and supporting. The Witch doesn't disappoint when it comes to scares, and is an impeccably made movie to boot. Looking forward to the next thing from Robert Eggers."
