The Witch ( Blu-ray )

A Puritan family in 1630 New England is torn apart by the forces of witchcraft, black magic and possession in this superbly crafted immersion in period horror from first-time writer/director Robert Eggers. Puritan terrors of devilry and damnation come screaming to life in this impeccably crafted and thrillingly scary debut. Set in 1630, the film follows a deeply religious family living in self-imposed isolation on the edge of the New England wilderness. As mysterious events occur, not least the sudden vanishing of their newborn son, the family is engulfed in dread. An evil spirit has invaded the forest and the farmyard  or does it lurk within their own sinful hearts? Writer-director Robert Eggers immerses us in densely researched period recreation and the visual shadings of a 17th-century etching.
