THE WITCH Trailer Will Unnerve You

A24 Films has released the first trailer and poster for writer/director Robert Eggers’ intensely unnerving feature debut The Witch. Aptly described as a New England folktale, the film takes place in the year 1630, a generation before the Salem witch trials, and revolves around a small family that has been excommunicated from its plantation due to father William’s outspoken objections to what he sees as the community’s lax religious principles. But when he moves his family to a remote cabin near the foreboding woods, an unspeakable horror creeps in, leaving their lives forever changed. This trailer is not only an excellent signifier of what kind of experience you’re in for with The Witch, it’s also just a damn good teaser trailer; it entices rather than reveals.

Check out the first trailer and poster for The Witch below, via A24. The film stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Katie Dickie, Harvey Scrimshaw, Lucas Dawson, and Ellie Grainger and opens in theaters sometime in 2016.
