There are few movies in recent memory with as much capital-h Hype around them as Robert Eggers’ The Witch. Even before there was a trailer, word of mouth from the film’s Sundance premiere last year was intensely positive, building a huge buzz around the film among horror movie fans. If the praises this film is getting are even close to being true, The Witch is already poised to become this year’s It Follows or The Babadook, a sensation that takes the horror world by storm. The anticipation for this movie is even so intense that I’ve made it this far-in to the write-up without making a Monty Python and the Holy Grail joke! Speaking of which, we’ve found a new trailer for The Witch, may we burn it? See? That joke should have been the opening line, but the hype around this movie is just too important to lead with that kind of tomfoolery.
You can watch the latest trailer for the much-anticipated movie below. Just be careful, I watched it once and it turned me into a newt………………..I got better.
