The Witch Trailer

"Black Phillip says you are with kid." A24 has debuted the second official trailer for Robert Eggers' horror film The Witch, starring Anya Taylor-Joy as one of the older children. The film first premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival last year, and is getting a release from A24 starting in late February this year. Ralph Ineson stars as William, Kate Dickie stars as Katherine, in this vintage horror thriller set in New England in the 1600s about a family and their suddenly missing children. This also finally introduces us to Black Phillip, the creepy ass goat that is a key part of this film. Ahhh! Black Phillip is pure evil! Watch out.

Here's the second official trailer for Robert Eggers' The Witch, direct from A24's YouTube:

The Witch Poster

New England, 1630: William and Katherine lead a devout Christian life, homesteading on the edge of an impassible wilderness, with five children. 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 for an inescapable evil. The Witch is the feature directorial debut of filmmaker Robert Eggers, who also wrote the screenplay. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2015. A24 will release Eggers' The Witch in select theaters on February 26th.

Black Philip

I heard, "Come Philip."

Who is that naked woman on the poster? Maybe a spoiler?

DAVIDPD on Jan 12, 2016


Can't effin wait to see this film! Oh, and does the picture on the poster vaguely resemble a face? I see an eye on the left and hair at the top in the branches, plus the oval face-shape.

Uh oh...this new trailer doesn't even look scary now. Seems like it's the Babadook all over again..meaning it's more about the family drama and there is no evil being.

SkyNet300 on Jan 12, 2016


And that sounds more reasonable. What else would some evil being be than fear in that family?

babadook was excellent. you sound like you enjoy jump scares more than suspense.

Jon Odishaw on Jan 15, 2016


I didn't enjoy Babadook either and I hate jump scares.

Sexy witch ...

A well done trailer. Leaves a lot to the imagination.

...y'know what Black Phillip needs? Black Phillip needs a freaking Chupacabra-bite to the ass, that's what stinking Black Phillip needs...
