I first saw 'The Witch' in an empty cinema, and although I wasn't expecting much from the movie, I was blown away. What I love about horror movies like this is that Eggers doesn't rely on jump-scares to creep viewers out - instead, he creates an uncertain and eerie atmosphere that never lets up. Definitely watch this movie if you enjoy horror.
Before 'The Lighthouse', Robert Eggers made 'The Witch' - a low budget modern classic horror movie. Slow paced, cryptic and disturbing, this movie will stick with you long after you've finished watching it. Here is the streaming information for the movie:
Currently you can stream The Witch with Kanopy, a streaming service you can access via your library or university if you're based in the US. You can also stream the movie with SHOWTIME (a streaming service that you can try free for 7 days through Prime Video). We'll update this page if we find more streaming options for the movie.
If you don't have access to Kanopy or SHOWTIME then you can also buy or rent the movie with Apple iTunes, Prime Video, VUDU, FandangoNOW, Redbox, Microsoft Store and Google Play Movies. It'll cost you as little as $0.99 to rent the movie and $9.99 to buy the movie.
