(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

1943 movie made in Denmark (titled Vredens Dag), directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer and starring Lisbeth Movin, Sigurd Berg, and Albert Hoeberg. It is based on a stage play by Wiers Jensen. In the seventeenth century, Anne Pedersdotter (Movin), second wife to a parson, is accused of witchcraft because, on declaring her love for the parson's son, Martin (Preben Leerdorff-Rye), the parson himself drops dead of a heart attack. Graphic scenes in the movie include one of an old woman being burned alive.
