The Witch

The Witch

This moody, psychological and spiritual shocker is better classified as a supernatural drama than a horror film. The scares are slow in coming in this tale of a pilgrim family exiled from their Puritan community, circa 1630, and forced to live on the edge of a very forbidding forest. When crops begin to fail and a baby vanishes, the various family members are quick to find blame--either in each other, or in a vague satanic threat that may or may not exist in the woods. Writer-director Robert Eggers allegedly took much of his dialogue from transcripts of actual New England witch trials. The tone of primordial doom and gloom is palpable, but the film loses some steam in abandoning its metaphorical horrors for more concrete boogeymen. FULL REVIEW: Historical horror combines pilgrims and paranoia by Devin D. O’Leary (2/18/2016). 92 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 10/27)
