'The VVitch' Featuring The Frightful Femme

Back to the Movies published on

Prepare to be bewitched on this week's Back to the Movies featuring special guest host, The Frightful Femme herself, Kirsten Therkelson in our review discussion of The Witch.  The film has been lauded by a number of critics ever since its Sundance 2015 debut and the internet just can't stop talking about it. It brings a slow burn horror to the criminally underused setting of precolonial 17th century by mixing myth with authentic vernacular. It's got an undeniable attention to detail in its script, sets, and costuming, but does it really deliver a compelling bit of horror?
