TTF13 - HORROR MOVIE PICKS OF THE WEEK

JEREMIAH'S PICK - 'THE WITCH' (2016)

"While taken from the P.O.V. of a puritanical family and their battle with not only Satan, but their own faith as well - there are themes any of us can relate with (conformity, temptation, and finding one's self). Highly recommended."

In 1630 New England, panic and despair envelops a farmer (Ralph Ineson), his wife (Kate Dickie) and four of their children when youngest son Samuel suddenly vanishes. The family blames Thomasin (Anya Taylor-Joy), the oldest daughter who was watching the boy at the time of his disappearance. With suspicion and paranoia mounting, twin siblings Mercy (Ellie Grainger) and Jonas (Lucas Dawson) suspect Thomasin of witchcraft, testing the clan’s faith, loyalty and love to one another.

SARAH'S PICK - 'THALE' (2012)

"Another great film from Norway. Very beautiful and intriguing, centering around a mythological creature."

Estranged friends Leo (a crime-scene cleaner) and hired-hand Elvis are cleaning up a particularly messy casualty deep in the Norwegian woods. When Leo accidentally finds a secret passage that leads to a subterranean living space, he also encounters Thale, a beautiful young woman who sings, but does not speak. Though they are intrigued and concerned for her, they are ill-prepared when others, tracking Thale, finally catch up to her.
