Evil takes many forms in new poster for The Witch

Last Updated on August 5, 2021

One of the most exciting horror films on the horizon is Robert Eggers' THE WITCH, the Sundance hit headed our way early next year. The indie darling just issued a new poster, which you can see below. Peep that ominous tagline: Evil takes many forms. The form of a crow, apparently!

Additionally, the film just opened a new site, which you can check out HERE.

Starring Anya Taylor Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie, Harvey Scrimshaw, Ellie Grainger and Lucas Dawson, THE WITCH goes like this: 

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.  

THE WITCH, which has been rated R for disturbing violent content and graphic nudity, comes out February 26, 2016.
