The whole idea was to recreate the objects as authentic as possible. I have worked enough on this myself, but also with the participation of museums, historians and some members of the existing historical communities, in order to try to understand how everything could be done. Everything on the farm was created from the relevant materials. The clothes were sewn by hand, and the rest tried to keep the color in the appropriate form. Also, costume designers and I have tried to recreate things in such a way that they seem primordial. For example, William, the father of the family, wears a wide-brimmed hat, which is the traditional headdress of Puritan pilgrims. (Robert Eggers)
About the “Witch” appeared mostly great reviews. The trailer was impressive with every viewing. In the cinema, this film was supposed to be an event for me, but … It was not released, and everything fell through. All that was acquired by overwork, all was lost.
Such films as Babaduk, ÂLet Me In, ÂIt (ÂIt follows) are very strong films, as their directors shoot what can be called personal rather than just creating a film product. I do not think that now is horror ÂWorse films. We like to think that before everything (for example, Rosemary’s Baby, Exorcist, Shine) was better. At the same time, we donÂt remember the tons of shit that once filled the market and made him hate him. We remember the works that work (laughs). (Robert Eggers)
Immediately it is necessary to warn those who consider horror films “Spell”, “Astral”, “Paranormal Activity”, that “The Witch” is absolutely different from the examples in the popular horror films. The emphasis is solely on the atmosphere, which is highly dependent on the plausibility of the scenery, costumes, life of distant times. Given that the family house is located in an open space, the horror of claustrophobia still captures the mind into a trap, tearing off weighty pieces of conscience, consciousness, clarity of mind. Therefore, lovers tickle your nerves through unexpected appearances of ghosts around the corner without fail will be boring. To intolerance is boring.
I read a lot of books. I think, in the end, the film should be personal, which conveys to the viewers everything that is in it. ItÂs not enough for me to just take a picture and say “this is cool.” Each image in the film should be an echo of my memory. Everything should be so personal, as if a separate part was taken from my Puritan childhood, as if it was unclear how my father smelled in a corn field that day, as if every speck of dust on the floor that was in my house resembles dust in the movie. It sounds somewhat lofty, but this is my approach. Maybe it helps (laughs). (Robert Eggers)
In fact, the “Witch” is eerily flaunted by well-chosen shots of an inhospitable forest, which at the same time beckon and repel. So look, the forest is in a good way the perfect place for the presence of evil. After all, there will always be all sorts of travelers and lost souls that you can enjoy. It is worth forgetting about sweet bears, squirrels and rabbits – all the settlers are henchmen of evil. Directed by Robert Eggers, apparently, diligently and sensibly prepared for his debut. A clear idea of what he wants, played into the hands of the film, because there is the authorÂs handwriting, and not standards imposed by a large studio. The debutant director, who actively resembles Jason Momoa, ventured to a remake of Nosferatu himself, and after not a weak opening, interest in Robert Eggers will only be heated.
I think it’s great when people say that The Witch is definitely an art house, but also has access to mainstream fans. There are definitely people who hate my movie to hell, which is great too. Still, most people and the general public liked the film, which only excites me. It was extremely pleasant to receive letters from teenagers, for whom the ÂWitch became the first art-house horror and something special in general. In my teenage years I didnÂt watch so many such films, so IÂm very excited that I can show my cinema to people. (Robert Eggers)
With all the positive features, I canÂt write that the story presented impressed me to the point, and now I can rightfully call the creation of a debutant a masterpiece. This fact rests on the fact that I am not a particular lover of historical paintings or sketches. Be it Ancient Rome or the Middle Ages. Yes, authenticity in films is often amazing, but still, certain times were so long ago that I do not see the need for the next historical story. One gets the feeling that the past does not want to let us go, but it would be worth thinking about the present. Therefore, I certainly did not become a fan.
I like the fact that there are debates about how horror films with deeper plots are needed than the usual passing days, the purpose of which is to scatter popcorn on your girlfriend from fleeting fright. It is very interesting that the “Witch” made people discuss all this persimmon (laughs). I am not a rabid fan of Lovecraft, but what I like about him is the understanding of horror in something sublime, great. I am also not an expert, but some contemporary Japanese productions are horror. Actors of medieval Japanese theater But they realized that horror is an important way to understand what is happening to you. Darkness is half our world, so it is important to check and confirm this.
