Today, I’m at Revfest in Smyrna and hope some of you can drop by and say hi. For those of you keeping up with my monthly roundup of horrors, I offer you a German film from the silent era.
Haxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages was made to be an actual documentary, but in all honesty, it is a really fun watch for horror fans and history buffs. It is a psuedo-documentary at best and is a lot of fun. Silent film acting is normally large and over the top, but some of the things that they show are almost comical by today’s standards. Still, Haxan is a fun watch and any horror fan should give it a view. Click on the cover below and read on for the synopsis.
Synopsis: This silent docu-horror masterpiece is a study of how superstition and the misunderstanding of diseases and mental illness led to the hysteria of witch-hunts.
