After I had left the theather, the ending was dazzling it set me in a trance over the powerful unsettling scenes this film had. Each actor gave it there best performance, with the 16th century accents. (Thomasin) Anya Taylor-Joy gave a tour de force of a performance, she was amazing my jaw was dropped over her performance. I was totally into the music, it always takes me back to a time where scores were made beautifully to fit the movie. Nowadays with most films the collaboration doesn't sync up well. Not this film, it was powerful a witchy tale which puts a spell over you sending the viewer into a world of the 16th century for 92 minutes. The cinematgrhpy was decent, their entire environment was eerie, The woods were creepy, I apreciated director Robert Eggers wonderful views with this film. Very brilliant director, He took those woods, filmed it and edited it all down to make the viewer terrifyed. I personally was pleased with how the scares were few and far between. Yet when they occured it was terrifying, disturbing events that unfolded. I a horror fanatic was thinking this movie was too intense for me, giving me nightmares that will easily put "The Witch" as one movie I will watch over and
