Divided into seven chapters, this part-documentary/part-fiction hybrid attempts to shed light on the numerous superstitions pivoting around the indecipherable mental illnesses that led to the relentless witch purges during the medieval times. Through a series of graphic vignettes and original gravures, Witchcraft Through the Ages does not shy away from the Inquisition's revolting inhumanities and its hideous practices of interrogation, as the sadistically ruthless inquisitors shatter human limbs and torture the flesh until the accused hag confesses or implicates another woman in witchery. From the Dark Ages to the modern 1920s, hysteria is often mistaken for demonolatry; however, what separates truth from a lie? --IMDb
Wait, what? There's no review here yet? While we do strive to be one of the better review sites on the internet, it's simply impossible for us to watch and review every film in existence. Personally, I probably own about a thousand movies that I haven't watched yet, and that's not even counting the stuff on my wishlist and in my Netflix queue. So, the fact that you're seeing this empty page means that it is a placeholder until somebody can review this movie. You can still rate it, comment on it, add it to your DVD collection, and any of the other cool stuff that we offer around here. You just can't read our review of it... yet.

Maybe you'd like to review it? We're always looking for new people to share their insights on the movies that they love (or love to hate). If so, you can contact me through my profile page here. Thanks!
