Comment
This is a Sweedish / Danish docurama that explains demons and witchcraft in the medieval period and links it to the then modern theory of hysteria. It is a series of recreations of scenes that for the time were explicit for their torture and nudity. The production quality is good even if today we may question the final interpretation.
