The VVitch (2015)
Dir- Robert Eggers
A family living in a Puritan community has been outcast over disputes by the father with the church. The family of six make a living struggling on a remote tract of land and when one of their children disappears the family unit begins to suffer as tensions mount over concerns that the eldest daughter may be under the influence of dark forces. These concerns are bolstered as the rest of the children begin to suffer illnesses and show behavior that is suspected as the result of witchcraft. The VVitch was well received by critics who noted that the slow build of tension worked well in this period movie that uses the remote setting to create the spooky environment for the story to unfold. Special praise goes to Anya Taylor-Joy for her role as the eldest daughter Thomasin.
