The Witch

the witch

The Witch is a decent installment into the “Beware of the woods” horror catalog.  While it’s not jump out of your seat scary, it has a creepiness that lingers throughout the film’s 90 minutes, which are beautifully shot I might add (the scenery very much reminded me of The Revenant).  The script is based on actual journaled accounts of witch hysteria in 1630’s New England, and I even had to watch it with subtitles because the Shakespearean English dialogue combined with thick accents made it a little hard to understand.  I’d love to see MTV put together a “True Life: I was a child actor in an f’d up horror movie” because the young thespians of The Witch could certainly provide a good segment.  Tier 5
