New poster for folktale horror The Witch

14 November 2015 7:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following its run of the festival circuit, A24 Films has released a new poster for writer-director Robert Eggers’ upcoming horror The Witch.

See Also: Read our ★ ★ ★ review of The Witch

New England, 1630: William and Katherine lead a devout Christian life, homesteading on the edge of an impassible wilderness, with five children.  When their newborn son mysteriously vanishes and their crops fail, the family begins to turn on one another. In his debut feature, writer/director Robert Eggers painstakingly designs an authentic re-creation of New England — generations before the 1692 trials in Salem — evoking the alluring and terrifying power of the timeless witch myth. Told through the eyes of Thomasin, the teenage daughter (in a star-making performance by Anya Taylor-Joy), and supported by haunting camera work and an ominous score, The Witch is a chilling portrait of a family unraveling within their own fears and anxieties, leaving them prey for an inescapable evil. »

New Poster For Chilling, Award Winning Sundance Horror Sensation ‘The Witch’

13 November 2015 7:43 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Trying to find new scares in one of the oldest horror genre tropes around can be a difficult task, but writer/director Robert Eggers has found some fresh chills in the deep dark woods with "The Witch." Winning awards at the Sundance Film Festival, Fantastic Fest, and London Film Festival, the film has been earning some noteworthy applause on the festival circuit, and next spring it's coming to raise some serious goosebumps. Starring Ralph Ineson, Harvey Scrimshaw, Ellie Grainger, Lucas Dawson, Anya Taylor Joy, and Kate Dickie, the film centers on a family living as outcasts in 17th century America, who are slowly torn apart when the eldest daughter becomes suspected of witchcraft. It's a slow burn film, with a carefully crafted mood, an intense atmosphere, and a strict adherence to the argot of the era. It takes a few moments to get adjusted to its milieu, but once it settles in, »

Alice Lowe starts shoot for feature directorial debut 'Prevenge'

27 October 2015 3:18 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Sightseers co-writer and star is directing and starring in Prevenge while seven-and-a-half months pregnant.

Sightseers co-writer and star Alice Lowe is set to start shooting her directorial debt feature, provisionally titled Prevenge, on Thursday (Oct 29) in Cardiff. Western Edge Pictures/Gennaker is fully financing.

Lowe, who is seven-and-a-half months pregnant in real life, also stars as a pregnant woman on a killing spree, targeting individuals from different walks of life. Her motivation for revenge is gradually revealed.

Lowe described Prevenge as a “post-feminist revenge movie”. The writer-director has structured a narrative for the film and said it is “a classic revenge tale and very episodic, so the structure was quite laid out,” but will also employ improvisation on set.

“We’re using improvisation a lot and that’s quite a good tool if you are confident enough to use it,” Lowe told ScreenDaily.

“You can get really, really exciting results from that that give it a freshness »

Fantastic Fest ’15 Review: The Witch

3 October 2015 11:08 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

The Witch is not what you’re expecting, this I can guarantee. Robert Eggers’ debut feature is most certainly not a horror film, though the themes are dark as coal. As the title card states this is a “New England Folk Tale” which is set sometime in the 1600s. William (Ralph Ineson) and his family are exiled from their community and forced to move to a secluded ranch near the forest. His five children range in age from 16 down, the oldest of which being Thomasin (Anya Taylor-Joy). While watching the infant, a game of peek-a-boo ends abruptly when the child disappears. A hunt for food draws William and his oldest son Caleb (Harvey Scrimshaw) into an area of the woods which is not to be ventured into, wherein lives at least one of the titular witches. A series of events leads the family to believe Thomasin is herself a witch »

Fantastic Fest 2015: The Witch – The Review

30 September 2015 10:17 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

When the title of a film basically tells you what to expect, it’s sometimes hard to be surprised or shocked by the content of a film. This is both an advantage and disadvantage in The Witch. Yes, there’s a witch(es) but how they function in the story is different than what you would expect. The Witch is less interested in showcasing occult rituals and cackling hags – though a few scenes brilliantly showcase this. It’s more interested in using the fear of a witch to illustrate paranoia and mistrust within a family. Robert Eggers strives for more than just straight-up horror in his directorial debut. Therein lies a minor problem for genre fans. Yes, as the title states, there is a witch(es). You just might be surprised that The Witch isn’t necessarily a terrifying tale of she-devils on the prowl. Than again… that’s not necessarily a bad thing. »

The Witch Review [Fantastic Fest 2015]

30 September 2015 5:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Since we live in a world where technology is constantly adapting to new conveniences, many horror movies tend to do the same. Constant cell phone usage mean victims always have a chance of contacting help, social media makes it much easier for legends to spread, and the internet makes information gathering all-too easy. But in keeping up with the times, filmmakers have forgotten how easy it was to execute horror in the olden days – except production-designer-turned-director Robert Eggers. Winding the clock back to colonial times, Eggers’ first feature, The Witch, is a brooding, pitch-black thriller about a family of English settlers who deal with supernatural beings that lurk in the surrounding woods. Famine, deathly illnesses, and evil witches. What a time to be alive!

Ralph Ineson plays the patriarch of the house, William. Along with his wife Katherine (Kate Dickie), they construct a farm in the middle of nowhere that »

Midwinter Of The Spirit episode 2 review

29 September 2015 1:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

ITV's wickedly wonderful Midwinter Of The Spirit continues to provide more intrigue than you can shake a crucifix at...

This review contains spoilers.

Life – and death, it turns out – sure ain’t easy for Deliverance Minister Merrily Watkins (Anna Maxwell-Martin), what with her having just found colleague and crazy old coot Canon Dobbs (David Sterne, making an early exit) chilling at home with a slit throat. But that’s just the latest strife she’s been saddled with since taking on her new Exorcist job – there’s that crucifixion killer still at large to deal with; the dead Satanist that keeps showing up to poke at the cut she’s got festering on her hand; and trouble from her teenage daughter (Sally Messham), who’s taken to hanging out with a middle-aged woman she met in a pub toilet. Boy, Merrily, it sure must suck a witch’s deathly cold »

Fantastic Fest 2015: Robert Eggers' Unique & Evil Horror 'The Witch'

28 September 2015 4:31 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

As far as film debuts go, they don't come as terrifying as writer/director Robert Eggers' The Witch. A stunningly simple, period, family drama with loads of gothic mood and dripping with atmosphere, it isn't a horror that will appease genre fans wanting a jump-scare every 15 minutes. Nor will it satiate gore-hounds looking for blood and guts strewn throughout. The Witch, instead, draws its horror from the unseen forces at work in the universe that slowly, but surely, breaks down a family until there's hardly anything, maybe nothing at all, left. Every scene of Eggers' film is crafted with an inherent tension, every shot a gorgeous composition of wood, dirt and fog. The Witch doesn't have an immediate impact, but it damn sure festers. Making up that family unit at the center of the story are the parents, William and Katherine, played by "Game of Thrones" co-stars Ralph Ineson and Kate Dickie. »

The Witch Brings Hell to a Little House on the Prairie

28 September 2015 8:50 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Read more of our Fantastic Fest 2015 coverage here. William (Ralph Ineson) has taken issue with the behavior of his village’s leadership and believes they’re not properly following the word of God, but instead of changing their ways his complaints result in the banishment of him and his family. He, along with his wife Katherine (Kate Dickie) and five children, moves out to a solitary patch of land bordering a dark forest to begin anew, but the pressures of leading a pious life take their toll on the entire family. To be fair, the witch in the woods who abducts, murders and bathes in his infant son’s blood isn’t helping matters. It’s safe to say that writer/director Robert Eggers‘ feature debut, The Witch, giveth no shites about your genre expectations. The film is a powerful slow burn dripping in period detail, dialogue authenticity and atmospheric dread, and »

Film Review: ‘Couple in a Hole’

25 September 2015 5:57 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sometimes an even greater mystery than why someone chose to create a particular movie is why someone else chose to fund it. Both questions exert a greater fascination than anything onscreen by the end of “Couple in a Hole,” Belgian writer-helmer Tom Geens’ second feature. This initially intriguing drama centers around the odd conceit of two grieving Scottish parents who find themselves living in a French forest crawlspace near where their only child died. Bizarre yet literal-minded pic gradually goes out on a limb too far as the scenario moves from leisurely and enigmatic to exasperating and random. Commercial prospects for this befuddling, eventually ridiculous endeavor look remote.

It takes some time to figure out just what John (Paul Higgins) and Karen (Kate Dickie) are doing squatting beneath a dead tree in the mountains of Midi-Pyrenees. We eventually suss that they were living abroad when a fire destroyed their home »

Toronto 2015: 'The Witch' review

13 September 2015 2:42 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ Old hags, horned deceivers and scary forests have all been done to death and it's easy to see why audiences might tire of revisiting the same old tropes in new horror. 'Twould be best to banish such doubts where Robert Eggers' brooding debut feature and Sundance hit The Witch (2015) is concerned, however. It may tread familiar ground, but it does so with unsettling composure, repurposing recognisable genre motifs for the period tale of a god-fearing family beset on their isolated New England farm. As much about the fear of sin as it is about evil itself, this is incredibly atmospheric stuff dripping with puritanical dread and steeped in satanic folklore.

Superstition is the key ingredient in seasoning Eggers' premise, of a family straining beneath the gargantuan weight of their own fear and guilt, with the supernatural. If you are hoping for a crone to descend upon them from the woods »

Trailer for The Witch Reveals a New Vision of Horror Cinema

31 August 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Writer/director Robert Eggers’ debut feature, The Witch, which premiered to great acclaim at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival (and won the Best Director Prize in the U.S. Narrative Competition), recently released a new trailer. It was also announced that the film will enjoy its international premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival as a special presentation.

Set in a painstakingly recreated God-fearing 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 as animals turn violent, crops fail, and children go missing, only to reappear apparently possessed by malevolent spirits. As suspicion and paranoia mount, everyone begins to point the finger at the farmer’s teenage daughter, who is accused of witchcraft. »

Sundance Winner 'The Witch' Unleashes Terror on a Puritan Family (Trailer)

19 August 2015 11:26 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The best film I saw at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival was Robert Eggers' "The Witch," a super-stylish, super-scary, witchy brew of madness that bears the mark of a seasoned auteur. Now that the film has been shuffled to early 2016 release (boo) from A24, "The Witch" also has a new trailer (below). Painterly images, ye-olde English, oozing ominous portent and pitch-perfect period detail drive chilling "The Witch," tale of a family of 17th-century New England settlers pushed to hysteria and violence by the malevolent, titular force nesting in the woods. Anya-Taylor Joy gives a breakout performance as the teenaged daughter of puritan parents, played by the brutally committed Kate Dickie and Ralph Ineson. This is the most exciting and important (and not to mention genuinely horrifying) American horror film since "The Blair Witch Project" blew up Sundance in 1999.

First look at Robert Egger's Sundance Sensation, The Witch

19 August 2015 9:34 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Witch, set in 1600's New England, follows an excommunicated farmer and his family. They have been forced off into a land rimmed by supposedly haunted forests. Immediately, all doubts go to the wayside, and cursed things begin to torment them. As the anxiety and paranoia begin to swell, all fingers point to teenage daughter Thomasin, who they accuse of witchcraft...

The Witch director, Robert Eggers, won best director for a dramatic film at Sundance and was almost immediately slated to direct the new Nosferatu remake. If you want to see what all the fuss is about, take a look at the unnerving trailer for a glance at Eggers striking images and formal compositions. The film is shot from the point of view of Thomasin (a lauded star making turn by Anna Taylor Joy) the adolescent at the center of a heightened religious/pagan folklore friction.
