The Best, Most Chilling Horror Movies of 2016
Touted as a "New England folktale," this film plays off long-standing themes of paranoia and superstition. The incredible (and unsettling) thing about The Witch is that it's quite immersive and disturbing. The events of the film — up until the harrowing ending — play off this sense that a whole family might be driving themselves insane with their suspicions and paranoia. By the end, though, we know beyond all doubt that evil is very real and utterly horrifying.
