A spine-tingling period horror starring Anya Taylor-Joy
A spine-tingling period horror starring Anya Taylor-Joy.
Mixing psychological and supernatural scares to chilling effect, this terrific horror movie is set in 1630 New England.
A Puritan settler family is gripped by suspicion and paranoia when Ralph Ineson and Kate Dickie blame their 15-year-old daughter (Taylor-Joy) after her baby brother goes missing from the homestead they’ve hacked out of the wilderness.
But is a witch in fact to blame?
With the tremendous cast making every moment count, this is a striking debut for writer-director Robert Eggers, who keeps us enthralled with his film’s skilful mix of folktale eeriness and period authenticity.
This film premieres on Netflix on Sunday 18 March.
