The Witch Gets a Creepy New Trailer for its Return to Theaters
Whether you missed The Witch in its first time in theaters or you’re ready to return for a second helping of horror, you’ll get a chance to see Robert Eggers’ stunner this weekend.
In advance of its return to theaters on Friday, April 1, distributor A24 has released a new trailer (above) for the festival favorite, which initially premiered at Sundance in 2015.
Back in February, The Witch gave A24 its biggest weekend opening ever, earning $8.8 million. Having already earned $24 million at the box office, it seems likely to edge out A24’s award-winning Ex Machina, which has grossed $25.4 million.
Set in 1630s New England, The Witch features Anya Taylor-Joy as a teenaged girl accused of witchcraft after a baby goes missing. As you’ll see in the twisted trailer, the film has all the hallmarks of horror including creepy twins, ominous goats, a raven and lots and lots of blood.
As the trailer boasts, Mashable called the film “so fucked up, Satan would see it twice.” But will you?
