In a remote Alpine village in the 15th century, the orphan Albrun grows up to become a marked woman. The scapegoat of superstitions and misogyny, this self-styled witch begins to assert her otherworldly birthright. The plague she conjures makes human cruelty look pathetic and small by comparison.
Writer-director Lukas Feigelfeld ventures all the way back to the 15th century for his slow-burn, celebrated debut—a folk horror tale told in four parts. Exploring the misogyny and fears of the medieval era, Hagazussa is a striking, sinister thriller that is both supernatural and psychological.
