Here is a new trailer for Robert Eggers" The Witch (2015) titled Paranoia. The Witch releases February 19, 2016, via A24. I liked this trailer as it shows more of what is in store for us watching The Witch. It looks thrilling with teases of some unspeakable evil lying in wait of this small family, but not directly terrorizing the family. I think that the ending of the film will reveal something along these lines. I am still going to find out for myself how this movie ends. Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie, Harvey Scrimshaw, Ellie Grainger, and Lucas Dawson star in The Witch.
In this exquisitely made and terrifying new horror film, the age-old concepts of witchcraft, black magic and possession are innovatively brought together to tell the intimate and riveting story of one family"s frightful unraveling in the New England wilderness circa 1630.
New England, 1630. Upon threat of banishment by the church, an English farmer leaves his colonial plantation, relocating his wife and five children to a remote plot of land on the edge of an ominous forest -- within which lurks an unknown evil. Strange and unsettling things begin to happen almost immediately -- animals turn malevolent, crops fail, and one child disappears as another becomes seemingly possessed by an evil spirit. With suspicion and paranoia mounting, family members accuse teenage daughter Thomasin of witchcraft, charges she adamantly denies. As circumstances grow more treacherous, each family member"s faith, loyalty and love become tested in shocking and unforgettable ways.
Writer/director Robert Eggers" debut feature, which premiered to great acclaim at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival -- winning the Best Director Prize in the U.S. Narrative Competition -- painstakingly recreates a God-fearing New England decades before the 1692 Salem witch trials, in which religious convictions tragically turned to mass hysteria. Told through the eyes of the adolescent Thomasin -- in a star-making turn by newcomer Anya Taylor-Joy -- and supported by mesmerizing camera work and a powerful musical score, THE WITCH is a chilling and groundbreaking new take on the genre.
Synopsis:A family in 1630s New England is torn apart by the forces of witchcraft, black magic and possession.
