The classic play brought to life about the salem witch trials. This is a real tear-jerker, Wynona Ryder plays the antagonist. I think this may be one of the best stories ever told,an the overall feel of hysteria that was present at the time reaps out of the screen as you watch. If you haven't seen or read anything real about the witch trials, rent this or 'Pennies for Sarah', probably the only better movie made on the subject. **** stars out of 5.
