Don’t know why this is on Shudder as it’s not horror. Very boring & drawn out

Really not enough here worth writing home about. It’s fairly mild in its depictions of the witchfinder’s tortures and the dialogue is so stiff. It’s just dull. Nothing really stands out.

Didn't care for it. I wasn't immersed in the plague era witch hunt it was going for. Unrealistic durability of the main character in my opinion.

Not a horror film but still a good one. Seems to be pretty historically accurate which is good. A lot of movies and books try to downplay the torture and murder of hundreds of thousands of women that were accused of witchcraft only 300 years ago!! This one does justice without being just too much to watch.
