THE WITCH

(Robert Eggers, USA, 2016, 93 min; 14A)  

New England, 1630. AN English farmer moves 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. As circumstances grow more treacherous, each family member's faith, loyalty and love become tested in shocking and unforgettable ways.

The kind of horror film diehard genre fans constantly hunger for, but rarely get. That’s because while it’s as unsettling as any scary movie should be, writer-director Robert Eggers’ first feature is also smarter than much of its ilk—blending old-time religion with modern feminist ideas in a way that can be totally missed if you’re not looking, and greedily devoured if you are.

Eggers’ method for crafting such a sinister film is simple. First, he starts with the tale of a devout family ousted from their Puritanical settlement and forced to start a new life. Then, slowly weaves in actual witchcraft folklore until its unclear if there is an enchantress in their midst, or if fear of sorcery has just driven them (and the audience) mad. But whereas “She’s a witch!” might feel like an old trope, Eggers’ movie presents it in such a way that—in our (still) politically, morally, and ethically divided times—it is easy to see how it parallels the treatment of powerful women nearly 400 years later. –Wired
