I can't exactly say that I like this film, but I can definitely say the talent that was used to put this film together was truly amazing. The story is about a New England family, that is expelled from a settlement, and starts their new lives on a farmland. Things seem to be going well at first, but when the family is forced to cope with the youngest child's disappearance, they begin to ask disturbing questions about the woods near their home, and each other. The story is inspired by the fear-based witch stories used by the Puritans in the 17th century, and every bit of that fear is exposed in this film, as well as what it would be like if any of those fears were real. This film exposes their worse nightmares come to life, and it leaves the audience with a feeling of fear and despair. The costume and set designs are amazingly well done, all done by hand to preserve authenticity of the time, and adds to the depressing undertones ever present throughout the film. Using the talents from the Game of Thrones series, Kate Dickie and Ralph Ineson play the mother and father of the story, and lead the talented cast down the dark and dreary horror story of evil supernatural forces. Both Dickie and Ineson acting abilities are hauntingly mesmerizing, and every bit as memorable as their more well known roles. As said at the beginning, I can't say I liked this film at all, but I can't deny there quite a bit of talent and a remarkable attention to every single detail frame of the film.
