I know I already said that Eli Roth’s Clown was the creepiest horror movie of the year and then I followed that up saying that the Goodnight Mommy trailer was even scarier, but that was before I had even heard of The Witch. Here’s the blurb:
New England, 1630: William and Katherine lead a devout Christian life, homesteading on the edge of an impassible wilderness, with five children. When their newborn son mysteriously vanishes and their crops fail, the family begins to turn on one another. ‘The Witch’ is a chilling portrait of a family unraveling within their own fears and anxieties, leaving them prey for an inescapable evil.
Now watch the trailer. No, I haven’t really got a clue what’s going on either but it looks messed up right? And man, never have I seen a goat be so fucking terrifying.
