The delightfully tense final trailer has arrived for "The Witch," introducing us to the goat Black Philip. Additionally, A24 Films has released a new poster, featuring "The Hare."
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.
