Check out the trailer below for THE WITCH. The film is from writer/director Robert Eggers, this being his first full length feature. The Witch stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie, Harvey Scrimshaw and Lucas Dawson. Look for a 2016 release date to be announced in the near future.

“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.” – Synopsis from IMDB
