The Witch

TV Times - - Film Guide - Sky sci-fi & Hor­ror 9.00pm - 10.45pm

This dark, spine-chill­ing movie finds a Pu­ri­tan fam­ily tear­ing it­self apart in 1630 New Eng­land af­ter their baby goes miss­ing. Is a witch to blame? It’s a very strik­ing film with its mix of folk­tale eeri­ness and pe­riod au­then­tic­ity, helped by great per­for­mances: Anya Tay­lor-joy is par­tic­u­larly good as the 15-yearold girl blamed by her par­ents for her brother’s dis­ap­pear­ance.

Dir: Robert Eg­gers 2015, 15, 105min
