Master of horror, Stephen King, has taken to his Twitter page to share his thoughts on Robert Eggers’ first feature film, The Witch.
The Witch scared the hell out of me. And it's a real movie, tense and thought-provoking as well as visceral.

If it’s good enough for Stephen King, then it’s good enough for every horror movie-loving cinema goer.
Here’s the synopsis:
When a devout Puritan family leaves their New England community to settle upon the edge of the wilderness, they fall foul of a dark force that sees them loose all faith and turn on one another, leaving them pray to an inescapable evil.
The Witch will be released on February 19 in the US, March 11 in the UK, and March 17 in Australia and NZ.
