BEAUTIFUL CREATURES

The portrayal of witches in films as evil, seductive, greedy for power, bloodthirsty, cruel — well, I think it’s all built upon some combination of fairy tales, the horror story that was the Salem Witch Trials, and the paranoid portrayals from the years of the European witch craze.

craft circle

Remember the late 1990s? THE CRAFT? Then CHARMED? Then BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER? Then THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT? Then all the witchcraft stuff appearing in episodes of shows like THE X-FILES, MILLENNIUM, etc.? To quote one of the creepier moments of TWIN PEAKS: “It is happening again.
