"I saw The Witch on opening weekend and absolutely fell in love. It felt like a love letter to true horror fans and film fans alike. It's my kind of film in every way. Aesthetically and sonically this film somehow captures emotion, deprivation, helplessness and compassion, as well as pure, unadulterated terror. It makes you feel something real, which can be argued isn't occurring in most modern horror films today.
With this poster I wanted to use the film's palette and imagery to create something that complimented the film rather than imposing my own interpretation. I went with "less is more" here. Blackness. Ominousness. Foreboding evil. A witch embracing her master, pure darkness in the shape of a goat - whispering in his ear - I chose to go landscape with this as it tends to create more atmosphere - a very important and beautiful attribute The Witch also has. It's not just a brilliant horror movie...it's a brilliant film."
