Haxan

1 Attachment

I caught the silent film Haxan: Witchcraft Through The Ages (1922) on TCM and I was totally blown away. The Swedish/Danish movie (through some very surreal imagery) deals with how witchcraft was perceived and treated with throughout the centuries. It is often talked about as an early horror film because of it’s dark imagery but I was surprised how well it dealt with the way woman have suffered at the hand of ignorance. I liked it so much I made a movie poster of it.
