The Witch (2016)

I'm quite excited by this movie. It is based on what people actually believed about witches prior to the rise of Wicca in the 1950s. Although the trailer doesn't reveal a great deal it does show classic signs of witchcraft or bedevilment, such as blood in the milk, the kidnapping of infants, and possession by diabolical entities. Not really displayed in the trailer but detailed in the plot summary for the movie is also the failure of crops. Of course we also get a quick glimpse of a hag at the end.

So for those who may not know, the actual plot involves a family in 1630 who unfortunately is homesteading on land next to woods where an alleged witch and/or witches are active.

There's a lot of buzz currently about this movie and it has rave reviews. It's only playing in select theaters and lucky for me I live near a theater that will show it tomorrow. I will do my best to see it and if I do I will gladly report to my readers my review of the film and if I recommend it to others.

Below is a clip featuring a Satanist who gave her take on the film. (Note that she's wearing a Santa Muerte necklace.)
