What a bunch of terrific actors and a smart telling of the actual events of 1692. Now we really know how jealousy and greed can go so far. A level headed Sarah tells how undisciplined children can walk all over adults too afraid of parenting their brats. Hmmmm, sound familiar?

I have never seen this, but omg, do I ever want to! They don't have it in the video stores, and anywhere else is damn well hard to find. The only other place I can think of is my sister's history teacher, but I never had the chance to ask of borrowing it. Too late now. Thank you, sis. Anyway, I intend to find a way. First off, the Salem Witch Trails have always been a fascinating topic on my mind since I was very little. And second, my art teacher played one of the hanged woman. She told us all about it, and how someone was almost actually hung when the safety line snapped. Luckily, people came to his rescue. Seriously, I really want to know how it was. When I do, I'll get back to you.
