Robert Eggers invites you to experience a slice of life in New England during the seventeenth century. A time of religious paranoia and superstition.
🐐
William and his family are cast out of the community and left to fend for themselves in the outlying lands.
🐐
There are rumours that a witch lives in the surrounding woods. One day Baby Benjamin disappears.
Taken.
The Witch is killing babes.
🐐
The mother Katherine will take to bed in despair and pray to the false Abrahamic God who neither cares or listens to her prayers.
🐐
William and his son Caleb go hunting and spot the most terrifying Hare I have ever seen. Those fucking eyes!
🐐
Then we proceed to 'Thy Father's silver cup' controversy. The daughter Thomasin is blamed when it be Father.
🐐
BLACK PHILLIP! BLACK PHILLIP!
King of sky and land!
🐐
BLACK PHILLIP! BLACK PHILLIP!
King of sea and sand!
🐐
BLACK PHILLIP KING OF ALL!!!
🐐
Little Jonas and Mercy really love playing with the goat Black Phillip.
You see, he whispers to them...
🐐
Caleb becomes bewitched and Thomasin is accused by Jonas and Mercy as the culprit.
They think she be The Witch.
🐐
Things basically go to hell after this.
B.P getting a little ramming done on Willy and Thomasin having to slash Mother for trying to strangle her.
It all ends in tragedy, I'm afraid.
🐐
Then we find out, wouldst Thomasin like to live deliciously?
🐐
The VVitch is a bleak, dreary, slow burn horror full of dread and menace.
I absolutely love it.
🐐
