There’s a rising star in the genre, but he’s not human. For those of you who saw 2015’s amazing film The Witch, you know who Black Philip is. The creepy, horned black goat was much more than he appeared.
It turns out that The Witch was just his debut. The 200-pound goat, whose real name is Charlie, has now starred in his second horror film, the highly anticipated film It Comes At Night (review), from director Trey Edward Shults which is now in theaters. Both films were released by A24. Coincidence?

In an interview with MIC stars of It Comes at Night, Christopher Abbot and Riley Keough, admitted that the goat in the film is indeed Charlie.

It was literally the same goat,” Abbot said. “He or she wasn’t as featured in our movie, but [it was the] same goat actor. It must just be A24’s goat. It’s in the mailing room, too. That’s a fun little fact. People are freaking out over that.”


Congrats Charlie! Good luck in your career. Live deliciously!
