The Witch Bloopers Bring Laughs to the Terror
If there’s any horror movie released in the last couple years that doesn’t have a shred of comedy it’s undoubtedly Robert Eggers’ masterful The Witch (review), but that doesn’t mean fun wasn’t had on the set. Ahead of the May 17th home video release, check out a fun blooper compilation – and yes, Black Phillip makes an appearance!
The Witch Release Details:
The Witch, the ground-breaking horror film “Certified Fresh” by Rotten Tomatoes and winner of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival Directing Award, will be available on May 17 on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) from Lionsgate.
A Puritan family banished to the edge of the known wilderness suspects an unseen, unspeakable evil is at work after the disappearance of one of their five children. Drawing from actual accounts of witchcraft and possession in New England, the critically acclaimed film features authentic settings and a creepy atmosphere. From debut writer-director Robert Eggers and theatrically released by A24 Films, The Witch stars Anya Taylor-Joy (Viking Quest), Ralph Ineson (Kingsman: The Secret Service) and Katie Dickie (TV’s “Game of Thrones”).
New England, 1630: William and Katherine lead a devout Christian life with their five children, homesteading on the edge of an impassible wilderness. When their newborn son mysteriously vanishes and their crops fail, the family begins to turn on one another. The Witch is a chilling portrait of a family unraveling within their own fears and anxieties, leaving them prey to an inescapable evil.
