Like to be scared out of your wits? Then the brooding period piece horror ‘The Witch’ is for you.
The plot is simple. A religious man breaks with his Puritan community and goes to live with his family on the edge of a spooky looking wood. Pretty soon that family starts to disappear.
The film uses much dialogue culled from 17th century accounts of witchcraft and trials suspected witches. This coupled with it’s eerie score creates a mood that gives us a feeling of unease throughout.
Brilliantly acted by Game of Thrones stars Ralph Ineson and Kate Dickie, as well as Anya Taylor Joy, I’m betting this will be a cult classic of the future.
