31 Days of Horror Blu-rays: The Witch (2016)

"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 currently sits at 91% on Rotten Tomatoes, and at a healthy 7.1 on IMDB, which is to say that it was a hit with both critic and audiences alike. It certainly is one of our favorite movies of the year so far, and it's one that we can't wait to watch again this Halloween Season, especially on Blu-ray.

We need some more Black Phillip in our lives!

This release isn't packed with a ton of Bonus Features, but that commentary and that mini-documentary are fun. The subtitles are our favorite feature on this disc though, as they allow us to finally understand everything that was said in the movie.

Special Features:

  • Audio Commentary with Director Robert Eggers.
  • The Witch: A Primal Folklore.
  • Salem Panel Q&A.
  • Design Gallery.



This disc looks and sounds fantastic, and the movie itself is a perfect addition to any October movie marathon.
