The Witch

The Witch ★★★★

Wouldst thou like the taste of butter?
A pretty dress?
Wouldst thou like to live deliciously?


I rewatched it again cuz I noticed it was on Netflix. It was as good as the first if not better. You know why? First time I watched it was opening weekend in 2016 BUT I don't think I got some of the dialogue since its old English and this time I was able to watch it with subtitles to understand some little things I may have missed when it first came out @ the theaters.

What a great first film and the things he achieved with such a small budget its remarkable. Great performances from everyone especially the kids AND the star Anya. This is the movie that made me a fan and I'll watch anything with her now.

Such a shame its technical aspects were not recognized by awards. Its cinematography and production design are so fucking good and the score as well.

Black Phillip is one of my favorite "villains" in horror movies ever.. the way he went from a sassy goat to an ASMR king? WHEW. I understand why people disliked it because most movie goers have a different
understanding of what a horror movie is. They're used to cheap jump scares and gore and this is all about its atmosphere and slow building suspense which is the best in my opinion.

Patiently waiting for his next movie. Robert Eggers is one to watch and of course Anya keeps delivering in every movie.
