Well that was weird. I was pretty unsettled in my theatre seat several times in this film. People talk about the rabbit in this movie but that early scene with a baby is going to stay with me for quite some time. Not well I am. 

Visually, this is a really well-shot movie. I was very much in each sequence and I felt cold as they felt cold. The performances are pretty strong as well. I think The Village would have been far better had we had some of these actors in it. That boy especially. 

It's a hard movie to recommend since I think most people wouldn't enjoy it or even get it. It's not an easy path this movie is asking you to follow. One thing that this movie deserves a vast amount of credit for is that it's original and feels fresh. You won't be able to anticipate much since this is a formula we haven't seen before. 

Again, I'm not well after seeing this. Well done.

One my ancestors was whipped and jailed by the Massachusetts Bay Colony for selling rifles and "strong water" to the Nipmucs. Classy folks, those pilgrims.

Well said, Barney. It is unique and definitely unsettling. I can't wait to see it again at home and be creeped out anew.

This was easily one of the best horror films I've seen in a loong time, for many reasons not the least of which was the direction. The kids were all great and a shout out to the goat.

Too often are child actors a weak link in otherwise fab horror films.
All of 'em were on point in 'The Witch.'
A fine movie.

The kids did fine acting in this movie. So did the adults and even the animals. The costumes, the locations, everything looked amazing. Sometimes I struggled with the English accents, but even that helped immerse me in the setting. Best horror movie I've seen in the last few years.
