Truly Deeply Disturbing Trailer For The Witch

Watch this and tell us you’re not freaked out. The Witch has had critics raving about it ever since it was shown as the Sundance Festival, and now the trailer reveals why. There are a lot of superlative quotes plastering the trailer but for once they don’t seem like hyperbole: this has to one of the most effectively creepy trailers ever. It seems to be in the tradition of films like Witchfinder General and The Wicker Man – which can only be a good thing.

The other interesting aspect of this trailer is that – for those of us who weren’t at Sundance – it’s our first glimpse at the work of the director, Robert Eggers, who’s being tipped to helm the Nosferatu remake (see here). Maybe we shouldn’t get too excited without having seen the whole film, but if this trailer for The Witch and the critics’ reactions are anything to go by… DEAR LORD, YES PLEASE!

We’ll go for a quiet lie down now.
