THE WITCH

Films that fascinate, films that intrigue, films that haunt your nightmares... 

Join Into The Portal for the inaugural episode of Film Friday, where hosts Andrew and Amber sit down to discuss films inspired by myths and legends, folklore and all things paranormal. 

Robert Egger’s The Witch (2015) takes us to 1630’s New England, where a Separatist family has been banished from their community and are forced to go and live off the land alone, on the outskirts of a nearby wood. Tragedy strikes when the youngest son, infant Samuel, is snatched from the family in a bizarre instance in which he has been entrusted to the sole care of the eldest daughter, Thomasin.

The Film is a haunting exploration of family, religious puritanism and the pitfalls of sin each individual endures as they slowly succumb to the black magic that is The Witch.
