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

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, it gave away too much information and was still rather misleading. Anyway, even though the damned thing didn't really blow me away, it still tur... 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.

"23.10. Blu-ray, 2nd viewing DIRECTED BY Robert Eggers Now that I had the subtitles to support me understanding anything, I enjoyed the shit out of the language here. The atmosphere is great, too, but the story itself is a bit too thin; a bit of unfulfilled potential, sadly. The ending is nice though. "

my half assed 2018 movie diary (40 movies items)

" A disturbing and psychologically arresting horror movie set in 17th century New England featuring overzealously devout Puritans who are pursued and broken down by a devil-worshiping coven of witches.... This is lit, is it not? Usually I have problems with modern horror movies because they are so fucking dumb and full of retarded jump scares and useless plot twists. But in The Witch, we see none of this cliched garbage and are instead presented with a coherent and gripping tale of a family re"

"Robert Eggers does an admirable job of synchronizing The Witch‘s paranormal and domestic spheres, setting up a vice-grip scenario in which Thomasin (Anya Taylor-Joy) has no possibility of escape. Her family’s restrictive religious practices are as domineering as the forlorn, featureless landscape which surrounds her, and this atmosphere only grows more stifling as the family pins blame on the girl for their mounting misfortunes. Positioning itself among a specific vein of highbrow phantasmag"

" Watched September 21st Rating: My expectations entering this film definitely effected my experience with it- I thought, after watching the trailer, that it would be a lot more violent than it turned out to be. I was expecting more to happen, maybe, and it turned out to be a quiet kind of film- I was left feeling like it barely had a climax. However, thinking back on it now, it's definitely one I would watch again. The characters weren't just puritanical charicatures, though that would have b"

To say "The VVitch" is brilliant is, quite frankly, an understatement. To be fair, it is not a film for everyone. Attention spans the size of a gnat will most likely not enjoy this meticulously paced affair. Gorehounds and those that obsess with slashers might as well hit stop before they play. This is not a slight on a viewer's intelligence but rather a fair warning to those expecting something else.” read more
