Earning its 90% Metacritic rating, THE WITCH is one of the most highly praised independent films in years. 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. With suspicion and paranoia mounting, family members accuse teenage daughter Thomasin of witchcraft, charges she adamantly denies. “THE WITCH is one of the most genuinely unnerving horror films in recent memory because the film has the guts to earn your fear”—Time Out New York. R. 90 Min.
