Robert Eggers

For two films, Robert Eggers has terrified us with supernatural period pieces in the form of The Witch and The Lighthouse. But it looks like he will be stepping away from that for his next film. But that doesn’t mean he won’t have a stellar cast to work with.

According to new reports, he will be directing The Northman, a grounded revenge story, that will star Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Bill Skarsgård, and reunite him with his Witch star Anya Taylor-Joy and Lighthouse star Willem Dafoe. More on the report below.

The Lighthouse

You seriously have to love what A24 is able to put out time and time again. The studio pushes the boundaries of cinema with their collection of films, which are directed by visionaries and great storytellers.

Take for instance Robert Eggers, the man behind this year’s The Lighthouse. Shot entirely in black and white, this maritime fantasy horror is also a dark comedy that delves into the madness that two lighthouse men, played by Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson, go into when they find themselves seeing strange and mysterious things on a remote New England island in the 1890s.

A24 has released a new trailer for the film, and you can check it out below.

The Witch

The Witch
Blu-ray | DVD
Directed by Robert Eggers
Written by Robert Eggers
Starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie, Harvey Scrimshaw, Ellie Grainger, Lucas Dawson
Distributor: Lionsgate
Rated R | 92 Minutes
Release Date: May 17, 2016

Filmed on a low budget at locations in rural Ontario, Canada, the restrained chills and atmospheric tension of the film festival sensation, The Witch (or The VVitch: A New-England Folktale, as it was originally titled) made a mighty impression on critics and audiences willing to embrace a more cerebral form of modern horror. Now, this terrifying tale of a despairing evil that overcomes a devout Christian family trying to forge their survival off of an unforgiving land comes home to Blu-ray, where chances are it will gain an even larger following.

The Witch Movie Review

The Witch
Director: Robert Eggers
Screenwriter: Robert Eggers
Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie, Harvey Scrimshaw, Ellie Grainger, Lucas Dawson
Distributor: A24 Films
Rated R | 93 Minutes
Release Date: February 19, 2016

Written and directed by Robert Eggers, The Witch is an exquisitely crafted exercise in dread. Set in 17th century New England, the film stars Ralph Ineson as William, a Puritan farmer who, upon threat of banishment by the church, must leave his colonial plantation.

He relocates his wife, Katherine (Kate Dickie), and their children to a secluded plot of land on the edge of the wilderness. Unsettling things begin to happen — the crops rot, goats give blood instead of milk, and the youngest child disappears as another becomes possessed by an unknown evil. With suspicion and paranoia mounting, the grief-stricken family accuses Thomasin (Anya Taylor-Joy), the oldest daughter, of witchcraft.

The Witch Movie Header

A trailer has been released for a new horror film titled The Witch, and it looks like the type of movie that could potentially latch itself onto your brain for a while after seeing it.

The movie is described as a New England folktale, but sadly that’s the only thing we have to go on at the moment apart from the trailer itself. It’s directed by Robert Eggers, his feature directorial debut (he’s also set to direct a remake of Nosferatu), and stars Ralph Ineson and Kate Dickie, who played Dagmer Cleftjaw and Lysa Arryn on HBO’s Game of Thrones, as well as Anya Taylor-Joy, Harvey Scrimshaw, Lucas Dawson, Ellie Grainger, and Julian Richlings.

You can watch the trailer for The Witch and also see a poster for the movie below.

Remake Of 1922’s ‘Nosferatu’ On The Way

Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror

Many, many vampire movies have been made over the years, most of which were inspired by Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel Dracula. But the first feature-length vampire movie of them all was none other than 1922’s Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror, or simply Nosferatu.

The movie was directed by F.W. Murnau and starred Max Schreck in the lead role as Count Orlok, and it was based on Stoker’s Dracula…though not officially. They couldn’t secure the rights to adapt the novel, so they simply made something very similar but different. Hence Count Orlok instead of Count Dracula, and so on. The Stoker estate sued and the court ordered that all copies of Nosferatu be destroyed but, thankfully for us, a few copies made it and it eventually became a legend of the horror genre.

Now a remake of Nosferatu is in the works at Jeff Robinov‘s Studio 8, with Robert Eggers set to write and direct the remake.
