A24 just released the first trailer for the upcoming horror film  The Witch! This Canada-US co-production is set to make its Canadian debut at TIFF this fall after premiering at Sundance where it won Best Director (Dramatic). This Mattawa-shot film is making waves!

Synopsis: A colonial family leaves plantation life and attempts to reap their harvest on a fledgling farm at the edge of an imposing ancient New England forest. Superstition and dread set in as food grows scarce, a family member goes missing, and the children's play takes on a frenzied and menacing undercurrent. As they begin to turn on one another, the malevolent machinations of an ethereal presence from within the woods exacerbate the growing corruption of their own nature. Starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie, Harvey Scrimshaw, Ellie Grainger and Lucas Dawson.
