This is an interesting documentary for those that are not really familiar with the history of witchcraft and enjoyable to watch for those of us already familiar with this part of world history. If you see the English narration by William S. Burroughs you will still need to read in parts of the film - the parts where it is a silent film with intertitles (the words on screen). The last 15 to 20 minutes of the film is the best part I believe. It is explain the painful torture the witches had to endure. Also explained is the contagious madness people, including nuns, participated in or witnessed. All in all anyone interested Witches and Witchcraft should view this film, IMO. 4/5
