Modern day research has cleared up some of the misconceptions surrounding the witch frenzy that resulted in twenty innocent people being executed for alleged devil worship. Looking back at the events of 1692 we see how intolerance and superstition can end up in tragedy for...More

Sadly, the towns interest in Salems witch history is taken a HUGE backseat to their maritime history. To which I say, those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Regardless, this is a very good look at the trials and what...More

By all means watch the theatrical "Crucible", but when you want to know the real history, you should watch this carefully researched documentary. Locally shot and beautifully produced, this movie will give you the information you need and help allay any History Channel misapprehensions.

A good documentary that shows at the Visitor Center, and features both actors re-creating the Salem Witch Trials as well as interviews with historians/"experts". Parts of the movie seem to skip, and the dialogue isn't synched with the actors lips, but overall a good effort.

This film gives you a lot of history of the witch hysteria in Salem with a palatable mix of documentary and historical recreations. It is only 30 minutes long, but the producers pack in a lot of information in an entertaining but educational production. Highly...More
