Rating: 8 out of 10
Synopsis: A family in 1630s New England is torn apart by the forces of witchcraft, black magic and possession.
Our Thoughts: ‘The Witch’ follows a Puritan family who leaves the plantation they were living due to a conflict of beliefs. They build a house and farm of their own and begin the new lives. One day, their new born baby is stolen by a witch who lives in the woods, while their oldest daughter, Thomasin, is playing with him. The witch, portrayed as a creepy, naked elderly woman, kills the child, churns his blood and rubs it on her body.
