The Witch Spellbinds Sundance

As Sundance enters it's 5th day, Robert Eggers' colonial-era thriller The Witch continues to possess audiences and distributors alike. Indiewire's The Playlist notes:

"Not enough can be said by Mark Korven's spine chilling and atonal score that employs obscure instrumentation, from hurdy gurdys, nyckelharps and creaky fiddles, to its most disquieting advantage. Discordant, ghostly qualities send tremors through the heart, and the way Korven knowingly references the percussive chain-rattles of Krzysztof Penderecki's feverish cues is intelligent and remarkably effective."
