The Witch – movie review

The Witch (2015)


Plot: 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. Directed by Robert Eggers, starring Anya Taylor-Joy in the main role.

Review: I was really looking forward to seeing The Witch, it looked like a different kind of movie. I was told that it starts off very slow, so I just sat there patiently, waiting for the gore and action to come along.

Well, there was no gore, no action, not even any scary moments. It was more of a snorefest, the dialogues were hard to understand, the acting was mediocre and so was the ending.

There were times that I thought I was watching a comedy because instead of being shocked or scared I was just laughing out loud.

If you really want to see this movie then just wait for the rental. However, if your time is valuable, just forget about this dull storyline and watch The Wizard of Oz instead. The witch is way more exciting and so is the storyline.

FYI: If you want to watch a really good movie with a similar theme, watch The House of the Devil – you won’t be disappointed.

Genre: cult, possession, psychological

Rating: 1 Hammer Smashed Face out of 5
