Witches have come in all shapes, sizes, and powers over the centuries, but there’s one thing they usually have in common: They’re women. Image’s powerful series Redlands highlights the link between womanhood and witchcraft, showing the misogyny behind the mythology.
Since 2006, we’ve had enough horror remakes and sequels to last a century. But we’ve actually had some terrifying new entries into the genre, too. As we await the likes of Lights Out and The Woods—both rumored to be nightmare-inducing—later this year, there’s no better time than to look back at what’s scared us the…
If you missed The Witch on its first rollout, Robert Eggers’ horror sensation will be re-upping its theater bookings this weekend to a carefully-chosen number: 666. But really, this new push is aimed at luring repeat business. Just look at the new trailer below, which dances dangerously close to the fiery realm of…
If you’ve heard anything about The Witch, it’s probably people saying that writer-director Robert Eggers’ feature debut is “the scariest movie of the year.” And The Witch is indeed full of horrors. But the scariest things in this movie don’t actually originate in the supernatural.
The Witch opens Friday, and it’s already getting a well-deserved reputation as one of the scariest horror films in recent memory. But witches have terrorized the big screen since the very beginning of cinema. Here are the nine movie witches who’ve haunted us the most.
The Witch has been getting huge buzz since the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, where this unsettling horror film picked up a directing prize for Robert Eggers. We talked to Eggers, and he told us the insane amount of research that went into making a film that’s so scary, it crawls under your skin.
We’ve had plenty of sequels, remakes, and found footage—but for my money, the most thrilling new horror films are the ones with their own distinct sense of style. That’s why I’m pumped for The Witch, which is set in New England 30 years before the Salem trials and looks both terrifying and gorgeous.

We've been enjoying the heck out of Kevin Wada and Max Wittert's X-Men clothing line (previously: 1, 2) — these drawings transform Marvel Comics' strangest superteam into a collective of blasé performance artists who blow Xavier's endowment on smart drinks imported from the farthest reaches of the Shi'ar Empire.
Look at that cover art above! Archie! KISS! Sabrina the Teenage Witch! Jughead! I'd accuse somebody of going inside my head and stealing my mental fan fiction, but there's no appearance by David Lee Roth as a pyrokinetic centaur! It's fair game! Without further ado, the comics in stores tomorrow!
In Saudi Arabia, there is a hotline you can call to rat out people whom you suspect of participating in sorcery or witchcraft. Dabbling in astrology or simply telling fortunes can land you in prison for life — or worse, get you executed. And last Monday, another witch hunt ended in death.
I can't imagine a normal person having a use for this crazy raincoat but if you're a wizard and/or KKK member, you'd probably like to protect your headgear from getting wet too. This limited edition raincoat does just that for you.
I have to admit, I thought you'd go for vampires. But the winners of this week's Halloween Smackdown were easily witches, which can only mean one thing: Smackdown Showdown. Witches trump all other monsters, but can they beat River Tam?
It's the Smackdown finale you've all been waiting for: Witches versus Vampires. Who will take the Hallowe'en Monster Icon Crown?
Seriously, people: Witches are better than werewolves? Is Summer Glau brandishing the broomstick in your imagination? (Or, actually, maybe it's fellow Whedonite Alyson Hannigan? Suddenly it all makes more sense.) Nonetheless, this time, it's witchcraft versus science gone wrong.
It's all about curses in today's Smackdown, as we ponder the eternal question, which is worse? If the curse makes you grow hair in strange places, large teeth and somewhat lupine, is it worse to be the cursed or curser?
Never mind the percentages (50/50? Seriously?), poltergeists narrowly (13 votes!) beat zombies in yesterday's battle of the undead, which means that, Tangina Barrons and Ray Venkman aside, there's only one place to go next: Witchcraft.
Nicolas Cage is a sword-swinging, wig wearing Knight with fancy moves, going up against stomach-turning zombie people. It is revolting — just take a look at the stills we pulled from the new Season of The Witch trailer.
This is for those of you who got a shiver when the magic mirror spoke to the witch in Snow White... or rather, it's the sort of thing that'll give your kids a shiver in this electronic age. A guy called Al has hooked up an old PC, an LCD screen, an Arduino board and a slew of sensors to give his daughters their very…
