Trailer for the Sundance sensation ‘The Witch’ has hit the web. The film won the Best Director prize for Robert Eggers. A24 has released a terrifying trailer and poster for the film. Billed as a “New England Folktale”, it is the first feature-length debut for writer-director Eggers.
The story centers around a Puritanical Christian family plagued by possession in New England circa 1630. The couple, played by Ralph Ineson and Kate Dicky, move with their five children to a home isolated by wilderness. Before long, creepy occurances begin happening, and seem to be particularly attracted to thier teen daughter, played by Anya Taylor-Joy.
‘The Witch’ is coming to the Toronto International Film Festival in September and will be released in 2016 by A24. You can watch the trailer below.
