Critic Reviews of "The Witch"Chicago ReaderFebruary 29, 2016
In the tradition of William Friedkin's The Exorcist, this chilling low-budget horror movie taps into the same temporal fear that sparks religious feeling.New YorkerFebruary 22, 2016
"The Witch" feels at once sticky with tangible detail and numinous with suggestion.ReelViewsFebruary 20, 2016
I would prefer seeing a failed attempt at something different than a regurgitation of every modern horror trope. Yet The Witch proves unable to capitalize on being different.Toronto SunFebruary 19, 2016
Helped by along by a great cast, a haunting soundtrack and terrific attention to period detail, The Witch is an auspicious feature debut for writer-director Robert Eggers.The New RepublicFebruary 19, 2016
The Witch is wrapped up in its own views of religion, of sin, of feminine power, but more than anything else, it is wrapped up in itself.Catholic DigestApril 28, 2017
The stakes are real. The Devil is real. All roads do not lead up the mountain. Some lead to the heart of darkness, to the depths of a witch-haunted wood.SFistMarch 23, 2017
This isn't the kind of movie most horror fans are going to flock to.Film InquiryFebruary 24, 2017
Set in Puritan era New England, The Witch is an atmospherically driven, religion-coated film that is, at times, both beautiful and terrifying.Film Ireland MagazineJanuary 03, 2017
The film is potently imagined and beautifully wrought -- although its hold loosens considerably when it strays from its eerie highpoints and into more conventional horror territory.MetroActiveDecember 31, 2016
It's startling to see a movie with such an appreciation and aesthetic understanding of this too-infrequently filmed era.The Mary SueDecember 31, 2016
The Witch is a solid, compelling, thought-provoking movie.
