Check out the new poster for horror movie 'The Witch' — exclusive

Posted on

It is generally agreed upon that the most terrifying film screened at this year’s Sundance Festival was The Witch. Set in 17th century New England, the film details a family’s unraveling after one child disappears and another becomes seemingly possessed by an evil spirit.

Written and directed by first-time filmmaker Robert Eggers, The Witch stars Anya Taylor-Joy (Atlantis), Ralph Ineson (the original, U.K. version of The Office), Kate Dickie (Prometheus), and Harvey Scrimshaw, and is released Feb. 26.

You can see the trailer for Eggers’ film above and, exclusively, the new, final poster for The Witch, below.
