'Game Of Thrones' Stars Appear 'The Witch', Possibly 2016's Scariest Movie

Reasons to be glad we don't live in 17th century New England

This article originally appeared on esquire.com.

We can all agree that it probably sucked to live in 17th century New England. What with the lack of advanced medicine, education, and luxuries like plumbing, electricity, and Internet memes, things must have really been rough. Honestly, the only thing that could drop the quality of life any further would be witches.

In this new trailer for The Witch—a movie starring Game Of Thrones stars Ralph Ineson (Dagmer Cleftjaw) and Kate Dickie (Lysa Arryn) that looks absolutely horrifying—we don't know if witches are real. We see a girl milking blood out of a goat. We see a crazed man with an axe. We see a child talking to a goat. All of these things—because if you remember, these people are living in cold, dark, wood shacks with little to no education—could very likely point to the presence of witches. It's enough to make villagers turn on each other. It's enough to make you wonder if these witches are actually causing bad things to happen. It's enough to scare the living shit out of you.

But for all the goat blood, children's whispers, and foggy woods in this trailer for The Witch, the most terrifying thing here is the tension: the true villain in The Witch might be our own paranoia. It won the Best Director award at last year's Sundance for Robert Eggers, and we can't wait to see it.

Here is a longer trailer from last year:
