Set in New England circa 1630, The Witch follows a farmer who get cast out of his colonial plantation and is forced to move his wife and five children to a remote plot of land on the edge of an ominous forest rumored to be controlled by witches. Almost immediately, strange and unsettling things begin to happen—the animals turn malevolent, the crops fail, and one child disappears while another becomes seemingly possessed by an evil spirit. As suspicion and paranoia mount, everyone begins to point the finger at teenage daughter Thomasin. They accuse her of witchcraft, which she adamantly denies…but as circumstances become more and more treacherous, each family member’s faith, loyalty, and love will be tested in shocking and unforgettable ways.
