The Witch Trailer 3. Robert Eggers‘ The Witch (2015) movie trailer stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie, and Harvey Scrimshaw. The Witch‘s plot synopsis: “New England, 1630: William and Katherine lead a devout Christian life, homesteading on the edge of an impassible wilderness, with five children. When their newborn son mysteriously vanishes and their crops fail, the family begins to turn on one another. ‘The Witch’ is a chilling portrait of a family unraveling within their own fears and anxieties, leaving them prey for an inescapable evil.”
I’ve been in the bag for this film ever since we first heard word from the festival circuit. Then came the trailer, which sold me a ticket within its two-minute running time. I love horror films, slow-burns, tension, the occult, witches, haunted forests – I love all that shit, and The Witch seems to be a taut, compact, smart, slow horror film made just for me.
Take a look at the third trailer for The Witch below. That goat, by the way, has a name. Black Phillip. According to Slashfilm, “You will have plenty of things to say about Black Philip.”
“The Witch marks the feature debut of Eggers, but there is an attention to detail to his filmmaking that never betrays his inexperience. The world of The Witch, the wilds of 1630 New England, might as well be an alien planet and Eggers trusts us to keep up with his characters’ antiquated language and often unknowable lifestyle. He throws the audience into this meticulously designed world and never lets us come up for breath. By the time you find your feet, he’s already started pulling the ground out from underneath you. Eggers’ precise, confident filmmaking finds dread in every moment.”
