Silent film, loud score

So this fellow Ben Christensen was fairly obsessed with a book titled Malleus Maleficarum, written in the 15th century, it was a guide for those doing the holiest of holy work, witch hunting. He proceeded to make one of the spookiest pictures of all time and break the bank while doing so. The film is from 1922 and Tim Kaiser will be performing an original score for the picture. We will be showing the truncated version that was cut in the sixties as there are no 35mm prints of the uncut version available to us in the US. Tickets are 10 bux and available here

I misread this at first: "doing the holiest of holy work, which is hunting"
Deer? Grouse? Oh, witches! I got it now!

I see your Malleus Maleficarum and raise you one Nag Hammadi.
