Film Review: The Goat Witch (w/ bonus Ritual table!)

The Goat Witch

Warning: NSFW

The Goat Witch is a short film by Black Rider Productions, made in 2014. It depicts a ritual in some detail, which is the entirety of the film. Awesome, right? So many horror/occult projects feel the need to tell a ghost/haunting/going insane story that unfolds over time- which has been done before. Keeping a tightly focused, concise plot is rare. And being able to give it a narrative at the same time, that’s cool. Of course, a film like this needs to have some good effects, and The Goat Witch's are impressive.
It’s definitely worth a look, and hopefully it’ll prove inspiring for you, too. I know that I’m definitely looking forward to seeing some of their other stuff. Check out their website and their other films at http://www.blackrider-productions.com/
