Haxan (1922): Superb Horror and Dark Fantasy Painted in Silence

If you haven’t seen this phenomenal silent film then by all means do. It’s a Swedish film about witchcraft and the frenzied denials and condemnations that surrounded it during the Middle Ages, and up until the present. Well, 1922, anyway, which is when this film was made.

The visuals of Haxan are astounding, on a par with any CGI magic you see today. These pics only represent a fraction of what is in the film. It’s an absolutely gorgeous piece of art and seriously, if you haven’t seen it, try. You will not be disappointed.
