#23: The Witch

Creepy colonial folk horror a reflection of modernity

Initial release: 2015
Director: Robert Eggers

Imagine what America must have looked like to the early colonialists. Wild, untamed, and hostile to a bunch of white people who were too weird for Europe. Such is the backdrop for one of the tensest movies since John Carpenter’s The Thing.
