Black Phillip is front and center in this teaser for The Witch

Last Updated on July 21, 2021

THE WITCH is barreling around theaters now, and the breakout star is none other than the goat featured in the film, Black Phillip. I can't say I'm surprised. A creepy, atmospheric addition to the colonial household, Black Phillip gives a better performance than most adult actors.

This new Entertainment Weekly trailer is centered entirely on his rave reviews (although they flagrantly ignored Rebekah McKendry's many extollings of his virtues on the Killer POV podcast), and it's both amusing and terrifying. Check out the video below!

New England, 1630. Upon threat of banishment by the church, an English farmer leaves his colonial plantation, relocating his wife and five children to a remote plot of land on the edge of an ominous forest – within which lurks an unknown evil. Strange and unsettling things begin to happen almost immediately – animals turn malevolent, crops fail, and one child disappears as another becomes seemingly possessed by an evil spirit. With suspicion and paranoia mounting, family members accuse teenage daughter Thomasin of witchcraft, charges she adamantly denies. As circumstances grow more treacherous, each family member's faith, loyalty and love become tested in shocking and unforgettable ways.

Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie, Harvey Scrimshaw, Ellie Grainger, Lucas Dawson all star in THE WITCH. It's cursing theaters as we speak.
