A documentary-style horror anthology film charting the history of witchcraft in the Middle Ages through to the early twentieth century, intersected with dramatized horror segments loosely based on the Malleus Maleficarum, a fifteenth century German guide for religious inquisitors. The most expensive Scandinavian silent film ever made, banned in the US and heavily censored in other countries for its graphic sexual and violent content.
