Horror thriller set in 17th century England about the children of a village slowly converting into a coven of devil worshipers.
According to director Piers Haggard the scene of the coven's attack and rape of Cathy Vespers was completely unplanned and created mainly during the shooting. Haggard said even the coven's chant was written right on the spot.
