A puritan family is harassed by a witch.

Intense, and much more serious than I expected. It's creepy in an unsettling way, not a fun way. The basic conceit, of the witches of Puritans' nightmares being real, is wasted on a Crucible-style-witch-hunt story. You could cut out all the supernatural stuff and still have a complete (albeit far less interesting) movie.
