The Witch Trailer Teases Supernatural
The Witch Trailer unveiled a couple of days ago. Check out the enticing glimpse to Robert Eggers’ horror feature debut posted in the header. Robert Eggers also penned the script to this much anticipated supernatural Thriller. The setting to the film is stunningly recreated in a 1600’s New England backdrop. A period piece with supernatural overtones, this film certainly piques interests.
Screened last year at Sundance, “The Witch” gained mixed reviews between Variety and The Hollywood Reporter . The core of the plot revolves around a family and the tragic case of one of their missing children. Ralph Ineson portrays William a religious gruff looking father of five. His wife, Katherine is portrayed by actress Kate Dickie. In this supernatural Thriller each character will have an interconnecting part to surrounding the mysterious disappearance of the couple’s infant child, Samuel.
The synopsis to “The Witch” reads as follows:
Set in New England circa 1630, ‘The Witch’ follows a farmer who get cast out of his colonial plantation and is forced to move his family to a remote plot of land on the edge of an ominous forest rumored to be controlled by witches. Almost immediately, strange and unsettling things begin to happen-the animals turn violent, the crops fail, and one of the children disappears, only to return seemingly possessed by an evil spirit. As suspicion and paranoia mount, everyone begins to point the finger at teenage daughter Thomasin. They accuse her of witchcraft, which she adamantly denies…but as circumstances become more and more treacherous, each family member’s faith, loyalty, and love will be tested in shocking and unforgettable ways.
