Synopsis by Sally Barber

From the A&E television series Ancient Mysteries, Witchcraft in America probes a collection of chilling events from America's supernatural history. The video traces the dark art back to Salem, MA, 300 years ago, when unexplained events ignited hysteria, trials, and executions. It introduces viewers to a 19th century New Orleans voodoo queen who presided over bloody rituals and bestial orgies, and looks at the 1928 murder of an alleged witch doctor. Meet modern-day women who practice witchcraft and claim their art is a force for both good and evil, and experience a Wiccan ceremony through live footage unveiling the dark power's ongoing force in America.
