New England within the 1630s: William and Katherine lead a devout Christian life with 5 kids, homesteading on the sting of an untraversable wild. once their newborn son vanishes and crops fail, the family activates each other. on the far side their worst fears, a supernatural evil lurks within the near wood.
That being aforementioned, “The Witch” isn’t for everybody. it’s strange, slow however steady, ugly at points, and nearly unwatchable at others. There ar 2 sides to the present film; one that I had hoped the director would keep on with regarding the family associate degree their struggle with faith and isolation; and another that plays as an undercurrent to most of the film and so takes charge within the finish. Sadly, it’s this second aspect that keeps me from giving the film a more robust score, which ultimately hurts the film within the terribly final scene.
