As a woman, this was disturbingly hard to watch because it was too real. That being said, I loved the ending, the costumes and the premise.

Entertaining film with some good horror moments & you could see they tried to include some folk elements like “witch ladders” & dried cats etc. However as others have said it’s littered with historical inaccuracies - & some physical impossibilities like being fighting fit despite weeks of torture - which definitely take you out of it, especially if you’re into fashion history &/or that time period in general. More of a fantasy revenge film using the misogyny of the witch trials as inspo.

Stopped watching after 40 minutes. Overly dramatic and not very scary. The many historical inaccuracies kept bugging me - farmers knowing how to read and write, peasant women in makeup, plague doctor masks that weren't leather. These could be ignored if the film was engaging, but it didn't grab me despite the beautiful shots.
