Just when you thought we'd seen the last of the trailers for "The Witch," another has been released. Not that we're complaining, mind you.
Titled "Peek-a-Boo," this one centers on the age-old game, which abruptly turns from innocent fun to sudden horror when the baby inexplicably disappears.
The acclaimed horror film from newcomer Robert Eggers follows a farmer in early 17th-century New England who’s cast out of his colonial plantation and forced to move with his wife and five children to land on the edge of a forest said to be controlled by witches. Strange events begin to occur, with animals turning violent, crops failing and one of the children disappearing, only to return seemingly possessed by an evil spirit. As suspicion and paranoia grow, fingers begin to point at teenage daughter Thomasin, who’s accused of witchcraft.
Opening Feb. 19, “The Witch” stars Anya Taylor Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie, Harvey Scrimshaw, Ellie Grainger and Lucas Dawson.
