Aro Favourite Witch, The


USA 2015, 92 minutes
Dir. Robert Eggers
Rating: [R16] Violence, horror & content that may disturb
Genres: Horror

Topics: Period - 1600s.


“In the tradition of William Friedkin's The Exorcist, this taps into the same temporal fear that sparks religious feeling.”~J.R. Jones, The Chicago Reader

Aroview: A rigorous arthouse horror-drama that follows a puritan family in 1630s New England as they are torn apart by the apparent forces of black magic and possession.

Researched and constructed in painstaking detail, it is quite exceptional as a rustic historical reconstruction, while its deliberate and largely unsensational approach to the horror elements will both extend and limit an appreciative audience. Scripted in the authentic dialect of the period, subtitles are recommended.
