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 director/writer Robert Eggers. Hailed as unconventional, but totally haunting and compelling by critics, it tells the 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.
