Elevation Pictures + Mr. Will want to give you the chills. Ontario-filmed THE WITCH won audiences over at TIFF ’15 and we admit four months later we still are terrified. We want to give you a chance to attend an advanced screening of THE WITCH on Wednesday, February 10, 2016 in Toronto, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Ottawa, Calgary, Victoria and Halifax.
New England, 1630: William and Katherine lead a devout Christian life, homesteading on the edge of an impassible wilderness, with five children. When their newborn son mysteriously vanishes and their crops fail, the family begins to turn on one another. In his debut feature, writer/director Robert Eggers painstakingly designs an authentic re-creation of New England — generations before the 1692 trials in Salem — evoking the alluring and terrifying power of the timeless witch myth. Told through the eyes of Thomasin, the teenage daughter (in a star-making performance by Anya Taylor-Joy), and supported by haunting camera work and an ominous score, THE WITCH is a chilling portrait of a family unraveling within their own fears and anxieties, leaving them prey for an inescapable evil.
