The Witch, 2015 - ★½

Hailed as the scariest film of the year presumably by people who have never seen a film. Dull, tedious and let down by anachronistic performance and difficult to follow dialogue (taken from real life written journals doesn't mean it was supposed to be spoken out loud as a conversation). The only hope was that it would be building to that scary finale; if it had done then it would still feel like it wasn't worth the journey. The fact that it fails to deliver anything remotely close to scary just makes it a waste of time.

Perhaps a problem with the hype and how the film was marketed rather than the film itself.
