Review: The Witch now on Blu-Ray and iTunes

Black Philip

The horror movie of 2016 is now available to see at home on Blu-Ray and iTunes. No film in recent memory has haunted me more than Robert Egger’s The Witch. Set in the 1600s just prior to the infamous Salem witch trials, this New England horror piece will get inside and not leave. Unless you regurgitate a rotten apple. That might happen.

I loved this movie so much I custom made some Witch themed playmobil figures and made a small ad. Click below for our review of the film, and the fun we had with the custom toys.

The VVitch Playset by Playnnobil

Bah bah bah bah

I recently saw the 2016 horror movie, The Witch, written and directed by Sundance Best Director winner Robert Eggers. It’s a horror movie based on tales from the 1600s. Think of it as, if they had horror movies in the 1600s, this would be one that the settlers would go see. It’s beautifully shot, wonderfully acted, and the imagery will haunt you for weeks. Here I am setting up little playmobil figures to recreate scenes from the movie, and I even colored my goat all black. I mean, I have to have a Black Philip action figure. He told me I did.

I’ve got a whole bunch of photos to show you. Check it out.

Playmobil’s own show, Super 4, now on Netflix

super4

Playmobil has always prided itself on never producing toys of licensed entertainment properties. The Brandst├Ątter family always wanted to capture children’s imaginations with a “blank slate” – no embedded characters or storylines. While LEGO and others are making sets of Star Wars, Harry Potter, and The Avengers; Playmobil was doing knights, samurai, and ancient Romans. However, kids these days and more importantly, the parents buying the toys, do want something familiar, and Playmobil needed to respond.
