Andrew Rakich’s DIY feature about two 17th-century witch hunters investigating devil worship in a small Massachusetts town is a solid piece of calling card cinema. Period pieces shot with DSLR cameras invariably come off as amateur regardless of how credible the performances, but there's much to enjoy here.
