The Witch is a new horror film that has been scaring festival audiences around the world and is tipped to be one of the best horror films of 2016. The film has featured before on Moviehooker and I have tried my best to keep you all up-to-date with its progress.
Witchcraft is a thing that is rarely touched in film, I think witch movies have the potential to be some of the creepiest horror that one could hope for, witches are scary as hell!!.but unfortunately the witch genre has been mostly built from targeting a younger audience and with that comes some serious restrictions with what you can put on-screen.
Now it looks like newcomer and first time filmmaker Robert Eggers is the man who will tell the story right, and give the witch the darkness that she deserves. The Witch has been getting fantastic reviews and picked up best director at this year’s Sundance. Now Eggers has been signed up to bring us the remake of horror classic, Nosferatu and I am really looking forward to seeing what this guy can do with this classic. Judging from what I have seen so far with The Witch, I am pretty sure that Eggers can do it justice.
The Witch tells the story of a family who live in a house at the end of a forest. Deep in these woods lives a witch with a hunger for children. When the child of the family is taken from them unexpectedly, the family and villagers must venture into the woods to save their child and face the evil that awaits them.
I am also reposting the trailer as it has to be one of best trailers for a horror movie that I have seen in years. I have to admit I got a little freaked out when watching this trailer, I ain’t got those sort of chills in a long, long time/
