Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages (1922)

3 Stars (out of 4)

Witch Digging

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

The Criterion Collection presents this restored bizarre silent film which begins as a documentary about witches but turns into a real, honest-to-goodness horror film with scary images of witches, devils, evil spells, etc. Better to watch the 1968 version, also included on the disc, called Witchcraft Through the Ages and featuring music by Jean-Luc Ponty and narration by William S. Burroughs. Includes a commentary track by Dutch film scholar Casper Tybjerg.
