  1. For those who enjoy Dreyer's Day of Wrath, check out the Danish/Swedish silent Haxan. Benjamin Christensen uses dark humor and gothic imagery to show how witches are dealt with in the Middle Ages. The film makes you think how easy it is to accuse someone of witchcraft and have them killed. In the end, it comes down to whether you are liked by the powers that be, or not... It's my favorite silent (of the ones I've seen) with Passion of Joan of Arc a close second. The Malleus Maleficarum was an influence on the film if you want literature on the subject.
