About this Event

TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, AUGUST 30TH!

Decades before The Blair Witch Project brought popularity to the documentary-style horror genre, Danish director Benjamin Christensen unleashed his 1922 silent film Häxan -or- Witchcraft Through The Ages. As the fourth installment in the Halloween-season Riversdale Silent Classics Series, the film will be screened with an ORIGINAL score, written and performed LIVE by Saskatoon rockers The Garrys!

THE FILM

Häxan (Danish: Heksen; English title: The Witches or Witchcraft Through the Ages) was completed in 1920, and released in 1922. The film is a Swedish-Danish documentary-style silent horror film written and directed by Benjamin Christensen. Based partly on Christensen's study of the Malleus Maleficarum, a 15th-century German guide for inquisitors, 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 made as a documentary but contains dramatised sequences that are comparable to horror films.
