A film by Robert Eggers

Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie

During the 16th century a religious family leaves the comfort of a plantation based on a difference in religious beliefs. William (Ralph Ineson) and his wife Katherine (Kate Dickie) along with their eldest daughter Thomasin (Anya Taylor-Joy), son Caleb (Harvey Scrimshaw), and twins Mercy (Ellie Grainger) and Jonas (Lucas Dawson) suddenly find themselves starting a new life. William and Katherine welcome a fifth child, Samuel, into their family a few months later. Under Thomasin’s watch, Samuel is abducted by the witch residing in the forest.

I am going to stop here there is tension in finding the kid plus Katherine is devastated as Thomasin becomes the black sheep of the family. To make matters worst one thing happen after an other and more and more Thomasin is getting deeper as the black sheep of the family. American writer and director Robert Eggers makes his feature film debut with the horror film The Witch. And did he make a splash with it.The visuals of the film are bathed in a blanket of darkness, but Jarin Blaschke’s cinematography allows you to see what he wants you to see. Soon you will see the demons in the shadows followed by some super tension music to inform you of their presence. The horror unfolds you begin to think how riveting the film is as well as well filmed. The film is a dark entity coming at you at every angle, the audience will descent into an unforgiving wilderness that is  violent. The Witch is a hellish journey that scares and captivates and has a hell of an ending.
