Trailer for “The Witch” Released; Is This the Next Horror Masterpiece?

The Witch

Don’t pet the goat.

At the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, Robert Eggers won the Directing Award. That’s good for Robert Eggers, but even better considering the film: The Witch, a period horror film set in New England in 1630 — 60 years prior to the infamous witch trials in Salem, Massachusetts. Horror films aren’t usually film-festival darlings, but this one wowed ’em at Sundance and will next screen at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

The Witch is expected to get a theatrical release in early 2016. Here’s the trailer:
