The Witch (15)

Post-Horror Summer Nights

The Witch

Winner of the Directing Award at the Sundance Film Festival, this first feature from Robert Eggers (The Lighthouse, The Northman) garnered critical acclaim and launched the career of Anya Taylor-Joy.

In 1630s New England, Thomasin (Taylor-Joy) and her family are cast out of their Puritan colony and build a new house on the edge of a forest. While babysitting her baby brother one day, the child mysteriously disappears, propelling Thomasin’s mother Katherine (Kate Dickie) into a deep and devastating grief. Blamed for the disappearance, poor Thomasin can’t seem to do anything right and soon finds that terrible things just seem to keep happening to her family.

The Witch favours an unnerving tone over jump-scares and is frequently cited as one of the key titles in this modern post-horror trend. Eggers’ devotion to period detail sets the tale firmly and authentically at a time of religious zealotry, bringing the concept of original sin to the forefront.

Featuring a recorded introduction from director Robert Eggers.
