The Noonday Witch

The Noonday Witch


Based on the Slavic myth of the Noonwraith about a monster that steals away naughty children, Jirí Sádek’s debut eschews horror conventions, with most of the drama and suspense taking place in beautiful, sundrenched cornfields. When Eliska returns to her late husband’s village to start a new life she lies about his death to her young daughter. When the lie is exposed their relationship breaks down and a mysterious figure begins to stalk them. Reminiscent of The Spirit of the Beehive and The Reflecting Skin, The Noonday Witch mixes fantasy with reality which imbues the film with a sense of menace and foreboding.
