I felt the presence of Satan watching this film. At the end the whole theater erupted into demonic chanting. Forgive me Father!
The VVitch VVas The VVorst
The Witch is a stressful movie to watch, and that's meant as the highest praise.
If the story’s psychodynamics are familiar, Mr. Eggers makes them seem newly discovered. The intensity of his writing and direction, as well as the eerie austerity of Jarin Blaschke’s cinematography, Craig Lathrop’s production design and Mark Korven’s music, all conspire to create a film of exceptional originality.
The Witch’s greatest asset is its precisely controlled menace, and so even when nothing terrifying is happening, it feels like something ominous could be unleashed at any moment.
