The Noonday Witch

The Noonday Witch

Directed by Jiri Sadek, Matej Chlupacek, Michal Samir

After her husband commits suicide, guilt-ridden Eliska hides what happened from her daughter Anetka and moves them out to a small village in the Czech countryside. When Anetka discovers the truth, it attracts a mythical witch who soon threatens to tear mother from daughter forever. A stunningly shot and severely scary example of the too-rare “Daylight horror” subgenre, NOONDAY WITCH is a must for fans of THE BABADOOK, UNDER THE SHADOW and STILL/BORN.

A mythical witch comes for a widowed mother and her young daughter.

Cast: Anna Geislerova, Karolina Lipowska

Not to my taste. Was waiting for the build up only to be let down

Doesn't deserve all the negative reviews at all. This isn't really a horror movie more-so than a drama with horror tropes, which might be why it's so disliked, but it's an incredibly fine example of European filmmaking. The soundtrack is also really good, and the ending legitimately made me sob.

my type of horror.. not formalic and doesn’t feel the need to explain to the viewer or be on the nose. reminds me of the witch
