The biggest hit of Sundance 2015 was The Witch, a historical horror that scared the life out of festival-goers. No trailer as yet but Robert Eggers' film is definitely worth keeping an eye on. Set in mid-17th Century New England, expect to see supernatural shocks, religious wrongdoing, human drama and lots of satanic chanting. And twins. Twins are always creepy in horror movies. The all-too familiar cast talks about the first screening below. Enjoy.

Synopsis: New England, 1630: William and Katherine lead a devout Christian life, homesteading on the edge of an impassible wilderness with five children. When their newborn son mysteriously vanishes and their crops fail, the family begins to turn on one another. 'The Witch' is a chilling portrait of a family unravelling within its own fears and anxieties, leaving it prey to an inescapable evil.
