The Witch (2015)

Director: Robert Eggers

Stars: Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie

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.

This is a really slow moving movie. There are not any jump out and get you scenes or nothing really to scare you. It is a dark and a little creepy movie where you never really know what is going on till it happens. If you are looking for a scare you movie, then you need to move past this movie.

The making and the production of the movie was wonderful. It looks like it was filmed back then, if there were cameras. The most off putting part of the movie, for me, was the fact that they did use the speak back then. It made it hard to understand what they were saying at times. In some cases, the movie needed to be subtitle. I'm sure there were many out their thought that they speaking another language.

This movie is not for everybody. It is not scary at all or even thrilling or suspenseful. It is worth watching, but I only think it is worth watching once. I do not think that I would give it a second look. Enjoy.
