What are the best occult documentaries?

It looks like occult documentaries are all the rage nowadays. Everywhere you look, there's a documentary or docu-series about every religious extremist group. Cinema is full of occult-themed films and a prime example of these is Robert Eggers' The Witch. Released in 2015, the film made it to the top of the box office during its opening weekend. Since then, it has become famous for being the most successful film of all time with a goat in a starring role. But, enough of the jokes. Thanks to The Witch's popularity, it created an even greater interest in historical films related to witchcraft and the occult. To give you an idea of what's in store for you as you indulge in this dark category, we made our own list. Here are some of our top picks for documentaries that explore occult themes!

  1. 1Häxan


    Benjamin Christensen's 1922 film Haxan is your own educational introduction to 15th-century witch hunts. It consists of dramatized scenes of interrogations, Sabbath rituals, and other forms of devilry. It kind of borders between occult themes and supernatural horror territory so it's not for the faint of heart.
