Shocktober 2015 concludes with a look at the 1922 film by director Benjamin Christensen, Häxan, an odd artistic mash-up of what can only be described as a university slide show lecture, a documentary featuring reenactments, and a horror film. That's what makes Häxan such a singular film over 90 years later.
