Alluringly Grim

Mark Korven’s score is rich with suspenseful ambient noises, mirroring the level of 2001: A Space Odyssey. With the beautiful utilization of string instruments and choir voices spread throughout the soundtrack, The Witch is truly an eerie magnum opus in the artwork of horror genre scores. Desirves an Oscar nomination for this coming Academy Awards in 2017.

A True Horror Classic

This score only tops off what is a breathtaking display of terrifying story-telling, cinematography, absolutely phenomenal acting, and nerve wrecking tension. Go see this movie as quickly as possible. However, it is more a drama than horror. Easily one of my top horror films of all time.

Brilliant

also incredible, disturbing, beautiful... and the folk trad. at the end makes it all even betterer... :)
