The Witch (2016) | Directed by Robert Eggers

Viewing facilitated by Jeff Pinnette and Peggy Schick
A devout Puritan family in 1630s New England are exiled from their village, and struggle to survive in their new home situated at the edge of a mysterious forest. The sinister, witching forces in the wilderness emerge silently to terrorize them, first by kidnapping the youngest of their five children. As their life-sustaining crops fail, the clan falls victim to paranoia and fear as they begin to turn on one another, eventually suspecting teenage daughter Thomasin (Anya Taylor-Joy) of witchcraft. With the vast majority of the dialogue culled from primary sources from the time period, Robert Eggers’ debut feature The Witch is a terrifying glimpse into a family descending into madness. (Synopsis by Daniel Gelb, Rovi)
