Hagazussa Has Me Seeing Red

Hagazussa has been billed as a “pagan death trip”, folkloric horror, and even in some circles feminist horror. I challenge all of that.

I was sitting in my favorite bar in Chicago’s North side on two separate occasions, enjoying a manhattan, when I was told by two different men (who do not know each other, so far as I am aware) that I “should really go see” Hagazussa. The German horror film had come up for me before in various film circles. Folks who knew I liked “witch shit” thought its fresh take on the subject matter would be up my alley. Plus it’s in German!
