“The Witch”: Film review

Mindlessly puritanical christian numbskull 1630s New England settlers wallow gratuitously in their own sense of earthly fallibility and sinfulness, happily tolling away at their self-flagellating existence until they fall afoul of local woods-dwelling witchery. Long scenes of laughable prayers and stupendously irritating soul-beseeching preachery in darkly candle-lit log and thatch cabin rooms, juxtaposed with relatively effective scenes of tension and oddness. Hella-creepy soundtrack.
Ran away with themselves towards the end a bit.
