The Witch (2015)

Trivia: The film's title is often stylized as "The VVitch" with two V's instead of a W. Director Robert Eggers stated that he saw this spelling of the word used in texts about witchcraft from the period the film is set, and thus adopted it for the film's title-card and marketing.

The Witch (2015)

Trivia: Black Phillip, the goat, was supposed to appear in a several other scenes. But the goat was so poorly behaved on-set, his role in the film was drastically stripped down. The goat often either refused to do what the trainers told it, or in some ugly cases, he would randomly attacked cast and crew members. Co-star Ralph Ineson even had to perform the bulk of the film under heavy painkillers after the goat slammed into his ribs and injured him.
