With each new trailer/clip, 'The Witch' cements its position as 2016's scariest film.

After the first obsessive trailer, the distributor A24 has debuted another brand new trailer for their upcoming horror The Witch which must give a lot of us nightmares. The movie is one of the highest rated horror movies at 2015 Sundance Film Festival.

The latest trailer, which you can view below, delivers a haunting punch within its 1 minute and 28 seconds with its collection of macabre images and a plot twist. Opening with a girl named Thomasin playing peekaboo with her younger brother, the trailer guides us to the terrifying mess around her. People, animals, even plants all seem to be possessed by an evil spirit. The trailer ends with the disappearance of the newborn baby, and a mysterious character is planning a dark conspiracy.

The movie is set in New England, 1630, following William and Katherine as they lead a devout Christian life, homesteading on the edge of an impassible wilderness, with five children upon threat of banishment by the church. When their newborn son mysteriously vanishes and their crops fail, the family begins to realize that moving here is a deadly mistake. Like other horror movies, there are also terrifying exorcism scenes in The Witch.

This is the first work of director Robert Eggers but he has already made his mark in this genre. After joining Sundance Film Festival, The Witch has brought back to its director the Best Director award. At the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, The Witch received plenty of praises from both critics and movie lovers. 

The Witch stars Ralph Ineson, best known as Dagmer Cleftjaw in Game of Thrones and Amycus Carrow in the last three Harry Potter movies. Along with Kate Dickie, Harvey Scrimshaw, Ellie Grainger and Lucas Dawson. Newcomer Ana Taylor-Joy plays Thomasin, the oldest daughter who is accused of witchcraft.

This quality horror work is expected to hit theaters on 19/2.
