Jack Kecskes’s review published on Letterboxd:
“Wouldst thou like to live deliciously? ”
The Witch intimately dissects the horrors of colonialism, faith, starvation, coming of age, witchcraft, satany and grief. All of these themes are enveloped in an extremely entertaining and well researched screen play. The whimsical and dramatized old english dialogue is a true selling point for this film. I think Robert Eggers crafts well executed period pieces that are extremely entertaining and horrifying.
