/horror loves “The Witch” (2016)

Baddie: Pride Lesson: Don’t…move to…the woods? I’ve been excited for The Witch since its successful premier at Sundance last year, receiving high accolades and earning Robert Eggers ‘Best Director:Dramatic’. Eggers is able to successfully present a film that it is able to examine and provide a nuanced criticism of Puritan values. Spoilers ahead, so please proceed with caution. To dismiss The Witch as…
