(2015) dir Robert Eggers w/Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie, Harvey Scrimshaw, Lucas Dawson, Ellie Grainger [92 min; DCP]
A film that would certainly appear in our “Best of 2016” series if it were not featured here, THE WITCH is a remarkable New England fable about a colonial family ostracized from their community who encounter unspeakable powers lurking in the woods.
“The movie’s first-time director, Robert Eggers, blends authenticity with black magic, and the result is giddying.” – David Sims, The Atlantic
“A feature debut of startling confidence, Robert Eggers’s The Witch is not only an excellent horror film, but also a captivating study in extreme paranoia and the fragile bonds of family.” – Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail
“With a gentle rap-rapping, Mr. Eggers intensifies the shivers with art-film moves, genre shocks and an excellent cast that includes a progressively rowdy menagerie.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times
