There’s definitely evil at work in this brand new creepy trailer of The Witch, , the upcoming horror movie written and directed by Robert Eggers and starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, and Kate Dickie:
The Witch – Peekaboo
“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.
Just don’t play peekaboo when the devil is lurking…
Anyway, The Witch is going to be a bloody good horror movie, impatient to see it!
The movie The Witch is set to open in theaters on February 19, 2016.
