    Excellent to see a documentary on this that doesn’t take a biased point of view. Too many play on the glorious drama of belief that witches were real, evil, powerful, devil worshipping barbarians, or state things in a way that subtly suggests the presenters share Christian ideals or at least the social impressions of them. The neutral and informative nature of this documentary are really pleasing, as even though I’m someone interested in the history and culture of Pagan religions it would upset me to see information presented in a biased way against the Christians of the time. Indeed this documentary does a fabulous job of being what it is; a factual presentation in a medium and tone that holds interest and is entertaining.

    Reminds me greatly of Megan Chance’s book “The Fatal Key” where a group of girls in Salem, out of boredom and revenge over a woman accused her of witchcraft, simulated strange behaviour, then did the same to a number of other women. Twitched little liars.
