Watched this in two separate sittings so I guess in between the sittings I lost a bit of interest. I’ll have to rewatch this one in a few years or so and see if I get something out of it.
I think for me it’s because there are no surprises. Right from the first 15-30 minutes, you know what’s going to happen. And the movie doesn’t pull anything crazy or even just any noteworthy twists that spice it up along the way. It’s pretty straightforward and there’s no satisfaction at the end because of this.
I’m also not huge into witches/covens in film to begin with. That’s always been a boring subject for me. This is the case with The Witch as well, which I didn’t much care for.
I get the appeal, there’s definitely a lot of greatness here. But for me, right now in this moment, it just didn’t do much for me.
