Visually, it rules, and is well worth a watch, even if you're a weenie who is worried about intrusive night thoughts.
July 18, 2020
The Witch is a totally messed up movie, in a good way. By the very nature of the story, the film begins at a simmer that slowly builds and builds until it's boiling over with insanity.

Where bad horror movies settle for lazy tricks and easy outs ... The Witch is in a class rarely visited.
July 3, 2020
Steeped in the religious conviction and paranoia of 17th Century New England pilgrim life, this is more dirt-smudged tension and distrustful atmosphere than jump scares and monsters hiding around corners.
March 30, 2020
Those that patiently - and bravely - sit through The Witch will find an unsettling movie, loaded with tension that keeps escalating until the film's final frame.
February 24, 2020
The Witch is a sumptuously atmospheric tale of horror.
February 13, 2020
The Witch slowly cranks up a feeling of mounting dread. It feels transgressive, forbidden. Robert Eggers and his talented cast and crew have made something special.
January 13, 2020
Seems like it was created out of the Platonic ideal of a Hammer-period horror film, with all of the creep and none of the camp.
July 23, 2019
An odd mixture of fanatical religious paranoia and actual supernatural horror, which creates a fascinating, successful hybrid.
July 17, 2019
The Witch aims for an engrossing, period appropriate realism that only deepens the psychological burden on the audience.
July 9, 2019
The biggest magic The Witch has to offer is making 93 minutes feel like the rest of your natural life.
June 5, 2019
Its masterful blending of the sacred and the blasphemous makes it not just a great horror film, but perhaps the first true horror masterpiece of the new century.
May 31, 2019
Rather than try to establish any tension, Eggers prefers to utilize poor jump scares sporadically between artfully composed shots, all of which amounts to little.
April 9, 2019
Its historical allegory ensures The Witch stands out, but it does become a little slow and murky with details as it feels its way through to the dramatic finish.
March 30, 2019
A good horror film makes you scared to turn off the light, and makes you run when you could have walked. THE WITCH will undoubtedly be one of those films.
February 21, 2019
The horror is cumulative, and the escalating, asymmetrical shape of Eggers' story is a nice change of pace for the genre.
February 12, 2019
This film is true terror. You will not find jump scares. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 2, 2019
The Witch is visually resplendent, aurally meticulous, and singularly crafted to evoke dread from opening to close.
December 31, 2018
The Witch isn't just a great horror film; it's a great film, period.
December 27, 2018
He visto un centenar de películas de terror en lo que llevo de vida, pero ninguna como The Witch. Nunca antes algo me había dejado tan estupefacto, extasiado, y aterrado. Todo al mismo tiempo.
