A hybrid of documentary and fiction, silent film Häxan explores the history of witchcraft, demonology and satanism.
The striking visuals would in themselves be sufficient reason to watch
One of the weirdest and most bizarre movies of all time!
More commonly known as
>This film gives us a thoughtful look at the horrifying potential of fear, ignorance and superstition. I have to say I admire the courage Benjamin Christensen showed in making this film which not only must have offended the sensibilities of the time for the obvious reasons but also because it dared to champion reason over superstition as a way of explaining things which we do not fully understand. This film resonates with its message that those who judged others unjust may not have been just themselves.
