Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages


Maren Pedersen, Elith Pio, Oscar Stribolt, Clara Pontoppidan View All


Benjamin Christensen (Director), Benjamin Christensen (Writer) View All

Release: Sep. 18th, 1922
Runtime: 1 hour, 45 minutes
Grave robbing, torture, possessed nuns, and a satanic Sabbath: Benjamin Christensen's legendary 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. But the film itself is far from serious-- instead it's a witches' brew of the scary, gross, and darkly humorous.
