This TV "documentary" is better than the movie -- and made by the same people. These are very talented people -- they have the folklore of witches down cold and they also have the patter and pattern of documentaries down equally cold. The use of interviews and the extended story of the witch and her curse all add up to the sense of a realistic story.
I haven't seen this kind of verisimilitude since Orson Welles' made people believe that Martians were landing in NJ. As a teacher and writer, I plan to use this show and the film in my drama classes to illustrate verisimilitude, atmosphere, and style. The fact that all of this is done so realistically has started a national debate as to whether this myth and the movie are real. What fun!
