The Witch (2015)
“The evil is closer to home than you think…but you will have to wait for it.”
“The Witch” is a new horror movie by the director/writer Robert Eggers. Hailed as unconventional, but totally haunting and compelling by critics, it tells a story of a family of seven living in 1630s in New England. The family leaves their community to pursue independent living, but find a lot of hardship along the way, largely caused by supernatural powers. Although the picture has tons of things to brag about, its muddy premise, that largely relies on borrowed ideas, and unexciting horror thrills, make the movie a cinematic experience that is unconvincing and unsatisfying, although very admirable in its realism, style and presentation.

Directed by Dominic Sena, “Kalifornia” centres on two couples and takes place on the road. On the one hand, we have an intelligent pair of up-and-coming journalists: Brian Kessler and Carrie Laughlin, played by David Duchovny and Michelle Forbes, who are in the midst of an important Serial Killers book project, and who are eager to reach the coast of California in the hope of a better life. On the other hand, we have two beaten-down-by-life vagabonds: Early Grayce and Adele Corners, played by Brad Pitt and Juliette Lewis, who are easily labelled as “white trash” in the film, and who are accustomed to the life of crime and delinquency, wanting nothing more than a ride across the US at someone else’s expense. A chance meeting between the two pairs sets an unimaginable chain of events.
