The Witch Music By Mark Korven
Written and directed by Robert Eggers, The Witch won the Best Director Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in 2015. This visually stunning film tells the story of a devout family living in a plantation in 17th Century New England. Expelled from the plantation, they must settle near a mysterious forest. The family’s unity and faith are tested by overwhelming powers of witchcraft, darkness and possession. The Witch is a moving and masterfully crafted story of a family unraveling with no hope in sight.
The film’s soundtrack features an amazing, all-acoustic score by Mark Korven (Cube). Mark’s music is performed by a small ensemble and a choir. The result is unsettling, amazing, dark and terrifying. A new classic already considered by many as one of the best scores of the year.
A24 is releasing The Witch nationwide on February 19, 2016.
