When celebrities travel and stay in fancy hotels they like to have a sense of anonymity. Sometimes that means using hilariously weird fake names when they check into suites and penthouses.

"The Witch," a horror story about the supernatural undoing of a Puritanical family, occasionally casts a spell with some eerie production design and solid acting, but its slow-boiling brew of dread turns out to be more tepid than terrifying.
