The Influences of ‘The Witch’ Part Two: Director Robert Eggers on ‘Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages’
Posted on Wednesday, February 17th, 2016 by Jacob Hall
With The Witch opening this week, we sat down with writer/director Robert Eggers to do something a little different. We asked him to name the three films that most influenced his tremendous new horror movie and we would discuss his work through the lens of what inspired him. In part one of this series, we talked about Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. And now, we delve into the director Benjamin Christensen‘s odd and frightening silent classic Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages.
