  • Dreyer's horrifying masterpiece based on Hans Wiers Jenssen's play which, in turn, was based on actual records of witch trials during the 1600s. An old woman curses the local clergyman and his family as she is burned at the stake in this sobering and ghastly study of religious fanaticism.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Carl Dreyer's eerily disturbing masterpiece is the greatest film about witchcraft ever made..."
    USA Today

    "Blending austere black-and-white visuals with vigorous symbolism and sour psychological scrutiny, Carl Dreyer's searing, pessimistic masterpiece possesses real emotional wallop..."
    Total Film

    "What Dreyer does demonstrate horribly clearly is how quickly a close knit community can be riven with bigotry."
