By Jon Donnis
Get ready to be ensnared by the eerie charm of "Witch," the latest British folk horror film poised to send shivers down your spine. Directed by the dynamic duo of Craig Hinde and Marc Zammit, who also lend their pens alongside David Baboulen, this chilling tale is set to make its UK debut this Spring, courtesy of 101 Films.

Set in small-town England in 1575, "Witch" transports audiences to an era where fear of the supernatural ran rampant, and accusations of witchcraft could mean instant death. Sarah Alexandra Marks embodies Twyla, a tender-hearted wife and mother whose life hangs in the balance after being falsely accused of consorting with dark forces. Her husband William, played by Ryan Spong, embarks on a perilous quest to unearth the truth and save his beloved from a grim fate.

As William delves deeper into the shadows, he encounters tales of ancient malevolence that blur the lines between folklore and reality. Alongside him, audiences are led to question whether the witch he seeks is a mere mortal or something far more sinister. Russell Shaw adds to the intrigue with his captivating performance, drawing viewers deeper into the web of mystery and dread.

"Witch" promises to bewitch audiences with its blend of historical drama and supernatural terror, weaving a narrative that explores the bonds of love amidst the encroaching darkness. Brace yourselves for a cinematic experience that leaves an indelible mark on the past, present, and future.

Prepare to be spellbound when "Witch" materializes on digital platforms on April 29, 2024. But heed the warning: in the season of the Witch, darkness lurks where least expected.
