The Witch Is a Chillingly Awesome Supernatural Thriller - Sundance 2015 Review

25 January 2015 12:00 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The Witch is easily the best movie that I've seen at Sundance so far! It is an awesomely well-made supernatural thriller that includes some pretty fantastic terrifying moments. This flick is creepy as hell, and the story it tells was brilliantly brought to life on the big screen. 

The film is a colonial period piece set in New England in the 1600s, in which a man and his family are banished from the town they lived in. They are sent out to build a life for themselves in the wilderness. Things seem to be going well until their baby mysteriously disappears, never to return. This sends the family into a downward spiral of paranoia and madness and drives them to turn against one another as they try to move forward with their lives. The Devil is among them, and he wants this family to be torn apart in the most brutal of ways. »

With no stars, the slow-burn period horror movie will represent a significant marketing challenge

A24 and DirecTV have closed a deal for U.S. rights to Robert Eggers’ ‘The Witch” which sources peg in the low-seven-figures range, TheWrap has learned.

With no stars, the slow-burn period horror movie will represent a significant marketing challenge, though it will emerge from Sundance with strong buzz, including rave reviews from The Playlist, Hitfix and Badass Digest.

Daily | Sundance 2015 | Robert Eggers’s The Witch

24 January 2015 8:27 AM, PST | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

"Robert Eggers’s impressive debut feature," The Witch, "walks a tricky line between disquieting ambiguity and full-bore supernatural horror, but leaves no doubt about the dangerously oppressive hold that Christianity exerted on some dark corners of the Puritan psyche," writes Variety's Justin Chang. Jordan Hoffman for the Guardian: "In time we learn their names—the scraggly haired father William (Ralph Ineson), his sour wife Katherine (Kate Dickie), eldest daughter Thomasin (Anya Taylor-Joy), verge-of-puberty son Caleb (Harvey Scrimshaw), somewhat rowdy twins Mercy and Jonas (Ellie Grainger and Lucas Dawson) and baby Sam…. What’s striking is the high-wire tension Eggers maintains." We're collecting more reviews. » - David Hudson »

Review: 'The Witch' offers up a singular, upsetting vision of a family imploding

24 January 2015 5:30 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Park City - One of the downsides of spending a life mainlining genre films is that there comes a point where you start to feel like you've seen everything and there's no way to be surprised. "The Witch" surprised me. Quite a bit. Writer/director Robert Eggers deserves accolades for crafting something that feels timeless. His "New England folk tale" begins with a family standing before a Puritan court in a small plantation town in 1630. William (Ralph Ineson) and Katherine (Kate Dickie) stand accused of blasphemy, and William refuses to bend to the will of the court, convinced that he is a true Christian in a way that none of them can be. They are ejected from the community, and William sees it as an opportunity. He leads his family out into the wilderness, where they find a cleared area on the edge of a massive forest. They build their home there, »

Early Reviews Portend Sundance Breakout in Stylish Historical Horror 'The Witch'

23 January 2015 11:04 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Park City is open for business, and word on the street says buyers are already courting edgy, historical horror throwback "The Witch." Distributors caught an early glimpse of the film on Thursday ahead of its Tuesday afternoon premiere at Eccles Theatre. Produced by Parts and Labor’s Lars Knudsen and Jay Van Hoy and directed by Brooklyn-based designer turned first-time director Robert Eggers, this Us Dramatic Competition entry looks to be a witchy brew of style and scares. Taking cues from Kubrick and Bergman, "The Witch" recreates Puritan New England, just before the religious hysteria of the 1692 Salem trials, where a colonial family has settled on a fledgling farm at the edge of a forest. Doom and dread set in as food grows scarce, someone goes missing and a malevolent, wood-dwelling presence encroaches. The cast includes Anya Taylor Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie and Harvey Scrimshaw. Though the early trade reviews, »

Sundance Film Review: ‘The Witch’

23 January 2015 9:32 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A fiercely committed ensemble and an exquisite sense of historical detail conspire to cast a highly atmospheric spell in “The Witch,” a strikingly achieved tale of a mid-17th-century New England family’s steady descent into religious hysteria and madness. Laying an imaginative foundation for the 1692 Salem witchcraft trials that would follow decades later, writer-director Robert Eggers’ impressive debut feature walks a tricky line between disquieting ambiguity and full-bore supernatural horror, but leaves no doubt about the dangerously oppressive hold that Christianity exerted on some dark corners of the Puritan psyche. With its formal, stylized diction and austere approach to genre, this accomplished feat of low-budget period filmmaking will have to work considerable marketing magic to translate appreciative reviews into specialty box-office success, but clearly marks Eggers as a storyteller of unusual rigor and ambition.
