Witches were persecuted for centuries, all based on superstition, paranoia, revenge, and greed. And so when a Puritan family is exiled to live in the woods, it’s understandable they’d start pointing fingers when things go awry. But what else lurks in the more dangerous terrain of all: their minds?

Guilt, lust, pride, greed, grief and sloth all come into play as five characters enter the new world, and only one leaves. 

Tune in next time when I breakdown fictional characters and talk about what’s going on inside that brain of theirs. What makes us so scared of what goes bump in the night? Find out on this season of The Cine-Analyst!
