I caught The VVitch this weekend–it was either that or Interstellar and having recently sat through Blade Runner 2049 I was not at the moment up to sitting through another 2 hour sci-fi epic.
Was it worth it? Besides saving about a half hour The VVitch is a pretty good movie though I think of it as less a horror movie than a thriller with overtly supernatural elements.
And the reason why is that it’s filmed in a very documentary-like style, with relatively unsympathetic characters so it feels more like a chronicle of a family’s decent into the bizarre, as opposed to an attempt to have viewers relate, sympathize or emphasize with the characters.
Check out my view below, and let me know what you think.
