Stephen King isn't someone I automatically trust for his opinion on movies (though I can certainly understand his authorly disdain for Stanley Kubrick's The Shining despite my own love for the film), but on this we can agree: Robert Eggers' The Witch is a movie you need to see if you care at all about quality horror films (or just, you know, films). From King's Twitter:
The Witch scared the hell out of me. And it's a real movie, tense and thought-provoking as well as visceral.

Take from that what you will. You can read my own endorsement of the movie here.
The Witch is in theaters this weekend.
