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

To be honest, this movie was not really a high priority for me but since it was recommended by another listal member and since it seemed to be intriguing, I thought I might as well check it out. First of all, even though the poster looked pretty good, at the same time, in my opinion, it gave away too much information and was still rather misleading. Anyway, even though the damned thing didn't real... read more

A zealous man and his family are cast out of Puritan society after a difference of opinion about scripture and left to fend for themselves in the wilderness. The facade of piety soon gives way to the destructive nature of their personal demons which a coven in the woods exploits to their ends. But what will bring this family to its knees, dark and Satanic evil or their own natures?

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.

Terror Blurbs! (An Ever-Expanding List) (100 movies items)

"Plot: Shunned from their religious community, a puritanical family led by a well-meaning but oppressively zealous father venture into the wilderness, where they confront the supernatural...and themselves. Gorgeously shot, meticulously paced, rife with understated but impactful imagery, and, like any great horror story, pointing out the true monsters that reside in us, "The Witch" is an undisputable classic. A masterpiece!"

"14.8. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Seuraava uutuuselokuvan pikauusinta oli vieläkin kovin kylmäävä. Melko verkkaista tunnelman rakentamista, epäuskoa ja paranoiaa tätä hienosti tukevalla kameratyöllä ja aidon oloisella lavastuksella. Jeesus-ihmiset ovat kyllä outoa porukkaa."

"A farming family settle into a remote forestside area to stake their claim for a new beginning, back at a time when New England was still a "New" England. Things soon start to disintegrate from all sides when one ominous event after another occurs, each with consequences that bury themselves to unfathomable levels within the collective soul of the hell-harrassed household. As the successive steps of this slow distintegration unravel, this colonial clan of Puritans find themeselves becoming more "
