    The Witch (film)

    Seems to be getting good reviews - http://www.polygon.com/2016/2/17/110...e-of-depravity

    The Witch is a movie about the human condition and the effects of isolation on our psyche. It's a thorough examination that, without a doubt, is absolutely petrifying.

    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    And more love from AICN - http://www.aintitcool.com/node/74498

    As a first time accomplishment by a director, this film is exquisite, and even without taking that into consideration, the movie is just good all around. It doesn’t rely on gags or cheap thrills. This is psychological terror in a beautiful and poetic presentation.

    Wow, great movie. Serious Wtf moment right off the bat made me sit up and take notice. Very nicely done. Hope there's an uncut Blu-ray in the near future, because I dug it immensely.

    I enjoyed the slow boil of it! But felt it lost its way towards the end?

    Enjoyable flick though if only due to the unusual vibe to it!
