New, 17 comments

The Witch is getting a lot of buzz this week thanks to the release of a new trailer for the upcoming film, but buzz really started building for the Robert Eggers project back in January when the movie premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

The horror film was picked up by A24 Films (Ex Machina, Tusk) and is getting a 2016 theatrical release. Check it out to see why Variety described it as The Crucible meets The Shining with a dash of The Exorcist thrown in for good measure.
