The Witch

3 1/2 stars. Solid. Maybe even a 4.

The Witch stands head and shoulders over recent horror fare.

A family domestic drama set in 1630s New England; the twist being the family is being torn apart  by the powers of a Witch in the woods. Or does the Witch even exist?
With a British cast working their socks off, the direction and cinematography heighten the tension.

Is this Arthur Miller’s The Crucible meets The Exorcist?
