All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Witch (2016)




AKA: VVitch: A New England Folk Tale

Starring: Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie
Director: Robert Eggers


Premise:
Set in early 1600's, a man moves his family to the edge of a great forest to start a new life. Soon after getting settled, their newborn son disappears. The eldest daughter jokes about her being a witch and delivering the baby to Satan. As things get stranger with each passing day and tensions rise and it is unclear to the rest of the family if the daughter is the witch behind the misfortunes or an actual witch.

My Take:
A slow burning tale where nothing is quite as it seems the more the movie progresses.

Rating: So Good

Watched: Netflix DVD
