Top 25 of 2016: 9) The Witch

THE WITCH REVIEWED

“The Witch” is American horror at its finest. The period doesn’t matter, so much as the ability to engage with characters and an environment to produce a true fright. Like many others of 2016’s greatest films, it also comments on the modern era. When a family is slowly pushed out to the fringes of a community, the eldest daughter is hammered with accusations. What follows is child death, nude forest dancing and the greatest goat actor in human history. The film has been turning heads on home video for more than 6 months by now. Hopefully, you’ve had time to check it out.
