A classic

Since it is such a classic, I thought it was finally to time to check it out. Eventually, it is quite a weird flick, some very old documentary (about 90 years old) dealing with some even older superstitions mainly involving witchcraft in the Middle-Ages. It is rather funny that it is considered a horror flick when it is supposed to be a documentary. I mean, there were some rather eerie stuff, I... read more

Benjamin Christensen’s legendary silent film uses a series of dramatic vignettes to explore the scientific hypothesis that the witches of the Middle Ages suffered the same hysteria as turn-of-the-century psychiatric patients. Häxan is a witches’ brew of the scary, gross, and darkly humorous.

"25.4. (Teatteri) Teatterinäytöksen livesäestys sopii Häxaniin kuin kissa luudan varrelle. Yli 90 vuoden ikä ei paista lopputuloksesta milläänsäkään. Tehosteet taivaalla suihkivine noitineen, sapatteineen etc. ovat yhä toimivia ja erityisesti kidutuskammiojakson karmivuus on huippuhetkiä elokuvahistoriassa ks. aiheen saralla. Kaiken maailman mekaaniset helvetit sun muut leffaan löydetyt vempeleet korostavat tunnelmaa, joka on dokumentaarisuudestaan huolimatta vahvuudessaan sitä l"

""Centuries have passed and the Almighty of medieval times no longer sits in his tenth sphere." Benjamin Christensen's surreal Silent Documentary/ horror film about the history of witchcraft and Satanism is an unbelievable cinematic achievement. Even today, some of the images found within are completely horrifying and stay with you for a while after viewing. The film offers a very early psychological analysis on the following of Satan and even has the audacity (for 1920's standards) to question"

A classic

“Since it is such a classic, I thought it was finally to time to check it out.

It is rather funny that it is considered a horror flick when it is supposed to be a documentary. I mean, there were some rather eerie stuff, I’ll give you that but it doesn’t really qualify as ‘horror’, at least, that’s my opinion. Honestly, the whole thing feels pretty dated nowadays and you might wonder if it was really scientifically accurate. Still, even though the educational aspect might be questionable, it was still an interesting watch and it has definitely some historically value. It is also striking that the makers wer” read more
