We cannot remember a point in cinematic history at which witches were as prevalent as they are now. The 70s maybe? In any event these magical antagonists have never been hotter… even when burning at the stake. Next up is one from our friends across the pond.
From the Press Release
Principal photography has been completed on the British independent horror film VALLEY OF THE WITCH. The film, based on real events, follows the story of Kristen Matthews, who moves from London to the Welsh village of Cwmgwrach in search of a fresh start. She settles into her new surroundings, makes friends with her neighbours, and all appears well. But a series of unexplained suicides occur in the village, leaving the local police baffled. Kristen begins to experience vivid nightmares, and the local priest suffers supernatural attacks at church. Dormant spirits have been re-awakened. Can anyone stop the manifestation of ancient evil? Or is the village of Cwmgwrach fated to pay for its dark history?
