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.Häxan featuring Maren Pedersen and Elith Pio is streaming with subscription on HBO MAX, streaming with subscription on The Criterion Channel, streaming with subscription on Kanopy, and 3 others. It's a documentary and fantasy movie with a high Rotten Tomatoes (critics) score of 88% and a high IMDb audience rating of 7.7 (11,615 votes).
