Presentation:

In the haunting depths of northern German moors, where shadows dance and secrets linger, unfolds a chilling narrative that sends shivers down the spine… Eurochannel premieres Witchcraft.

The story follows 14-year-old Hanna, whose very existence serves as an ominous reminder of her mother's mysterious disappearance. Her return to the secluded home village after three years in a boarding school plunges her into a world of suspicion and unease. The village, gripped by the legend of a witch who seduced and led three men to their demise in the moor, eyes Hanna with a mixture of fear and distrust.

As Hanna delves into the enigma surrounding her mother's disappearance, she befriends the vivacious Eva. Little does Hanna know that her newfound companion carries a dark secret that will unravel the threads of reality in the most unexpected ways.

As Hanna's journey unfolds, the audience is taken on a rollercoaster ride of emotions, experiencing her loneliness, nightmares, and the unsettling visions of a woman in the moor. The suspense deepens when a friend from Hanna's past disappears, casting a shadow of suspicion upon her. Is she the witch of the village's folklore, or is there something more sinister at play?

The dynamics between Hanna and Eva add layers of complexity to the narrative. Their friendship, marked by tattoos and a shared necklace, becomes a source of strength for Hanna, empowering her to face the escalating mysteries.

The film paints a vivid picture of the misty moor landscape, setting the stage for a dark, mystical summer fairy tale. The bubbling shallows and interwoven moor provide a visually stunning backdrop that mirrors the intricacies of the plot. The cinematography, drenched in an eerie atmosphere, enhances the suspense, keeping the audience on the edge of their seats.

With a climax that leaves hearts pounding and minds reeling, Witchcraft is a cinematic masterpiece that transcends conventional thriller boundaries. The film's ability to seamlessly blend suspense, coming-of-age drama, and psychological horror creates an experience that lingers in the mind long after the credits roll.

Synopsis:
After returning to her hometown, a teenage girl is ostracized by the villagers who believed her missing mother to be a witch. They now suspect the daughter may harbor the same dark powers, as mysterious incidents start to occur.
