Burned at the Stake

Burned at the Stake (movie)

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Also known as The Coming for a CBS Late Night Movie in 1988, Burned at the Stake was originally a 1981 movie. It was directed by Bert I. Gordon and starred Susan Swift (in a dual role), Albert Salmi, and Guy Stockwell. It is set in modern-day Salem, Massachusetts. There, the ghost of a witch insinuates her spirit into the body of her modern-day descendant. This occurs because the spirits of those witches hanged in Salem in 1692 are supposedly trying to gain revenge for their fates.
