Alternative version of this film has also been known under the titles "The Witches" and "Witchcraft Through The Ages". Häxan is a study of how superstition and the misunderstanding of diseases and mental illness could lead to the hysteria of the witch-hunts. The film was banned in the United States in 1922, the first to ever be banned across the entire country, and heavily censored in other countries for what were considered at that time graphic depictions of torture, nudity, and sexual perversion. The film was seen in a heavily edited and shortened version in the US under its alternative titles in 1976 featuring William Burroughs as a narrator. As far as I can tell the original ban was never officially dropped and amazingly the original film was never legally seen in the US until 2001. This film is a little different than the others on the list because its country wide restriction on release was due to censorship from the government, the only film on this list like that, and one of the only films to ever be banned across the entire country.

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
