The Witch Teaser Poster

The Witch


In this exquisitely made and terrifying new horror film, the age-old concepts of witchcraft,
black magic and possession are innovatively brought together to tell the intimate and
riveting story of one family’s frightful unraveling in the New England wilderness circa 1630.

New England, 1630. Upon threat of banishment by the church, an English farmer leaves his
colonial plantation, relocating his wife and five children to a remote plot of land on the edge of
an ominous forest — within which lurks an unknown evil. Strange and unsettling things begin to
happen almost immediately — animals turn malevolent, crops fail, and one child disappears as
another becomes seemingly possessed by an evil spirit. With suspicion and paranoia mounting,
family members accuse teenage daughter Thomasin of witchcraft, charges she adamantly
denies. As circumstances grow more treacherous, each family member’s faith, loyalty and love
become tested in shocking and unforgettable ways.

Writer/director Robert Eggers’ debut feature, which premiered to great acclaim at the 2015
Sundance Film Festival — winning the Best Director Prize in the U.S. Narrative Competition —
painstakingly recreates a God-fearing New England decades before the 1692 Salem witch trials,
in which religious convictions tragically turned to mass hysteria. Told through the eyes of the
adolescent Thomasin — in a star-making turn by newcomer Anya Taylor-Joy — and supported
by mesmerizing camera work and a powerful musical score, THE WITCH is a chilling and
groundbreaking new take on the genre.
