New poster for The Witch promises a New England folktale

You may have heard, THE WITCH is our most anticipated genre flick of 2016. The buzz out of Sundance was extremely positive - Robert Eggers even won Best Director - and our early looks at the flick have been eerie and persuasive. Now a new poster has landed on our doorstep, which sticks to the overall theme of dark folklore the film's already been exuding with gusto.

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.
