Because You d Häxan
Documentary Horror 19221h 45mOn: HBO MAX The Criterion Channel Kanopy Tags: Medieval Doctor Country: Denmark 

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 horror movie with a high IMDb audience rating of 7.7 (12,527 votes) and was very well received by critics.
