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.
Once again, we are thrilled to have an original score performed live by Boston ‘Steam-Crunk’ ensemble and RPM Challenge favorites, Walter Sickert & the Army of BRoken TOys. In affiliation with, and as a fundraiser for, Portsmouth Halloween Parade.
