Hagazussa: A Heathen's Curse trailer: A beautifully shot, slow-burn folk horror coming soon to Blu-ray

The most obvious comparison to Austrian director Lukas Feigelfeld's Hagazussa: A Heathen's Curse is Robert Eggers' The Witch. The period setting, witch-based horror and eye-catching cinematography by Mariel Baqueiro are all well-crafted, although some may find it too impenetrable as Feigelfeld leaves it up to the viewer to find their own answers, while any real chills are thin on the ground. Last year it finished as the third highest rated horror on Rotten Tomatoes (although with far fewer reviews compared to some) and it will be available in the UK soon. Watch the trailer for Hagazussa: A Heathen's Curse above.

Hagazussa: A Heathen's Curse is a dark tale of a woman’s struggle with her own sanity. In a time when pagan beliefs of witches spread fear into the minds of the rural folk, the film aims to explore the thin line between ancient beliefs, magic and delusional psychosis.

Hagazussa: A Heathen’s Curse will be getting a limited Blu-ray release on April 27.
