Ryan Moore  Women’s Literature  Critical Roundtable  Witches & The Maternal                “Misogyny & Matrophobia in Cinematic Witchcraft”    The Crucible ​ (1996)   Directed by Nicholas Hytner  Essay: “Re(dis)covering the Witches in Arthur Miller’s ​ The Crucible​ ”  Written by Wendy Schissel    The Blair Witch Project ​ (1999)   Directed by Daniel Myrick, Eduardo Sanchez  Essay: “Gendered Imagination in ​ The Blair Witch Project​ ”  Written by Deneka C. MacDonald    Rosemary’s Baby ​ (1968)   Directed by Roman Polanski  Essay: “​ Rosemary’s Baby​ , Gothic Pregnancy, and Fetal Subjects”  Written by Karyn Valerius                Horror  movies  have  certain  antagonists  that  appear  frequently  in  the  genre.  Examples  of  such  antagonists  include  vampires,  zombies,  and  the  presence  of  the  Antichrist  through  witches   and  black  magic.  There  are  three  classic  horror  movies   that   feature  one  of  the  oldest  and  most  well­known  movie  antagonists  of  all  time:  the  age­old  concept  of  the  Satanic  witch.  ​ The  Crucible​ ,  ​ The  Blair  Witch  Project​ ,  and  ​ Rosemary’s  Baby  ​ all showcase witches as evil villains in  some  form  or  another.  ​ The  Crucible  ​ details  the  violent  madness  of  the  witch  hunts  that  took  place  in  Puritan  New  England  around  the  1690s;  ​ The  Blair  Witch  Project  ​ depicts  a  film  crew  running  through a forest trying to hunt down and film  an evil witch rumored to reside in the area;  and  ​ Rosemary’s Baby  ​ tells the story of a coven of witches seeking to impregnate an unsuspecting   women  with  the  child  of  the  Antichrist.  To  the  untrained  viewer,  these  movies  seem  to  be  a  harmless  cinematic  rendition  of  a typical horror movie plot: the good guys look for the bad guys,  the  bad  guys  scare  the  daylights  out  of  the  good guys  as well as the audience, and the good guys  try  to  bring  down  the  bad  guys.  This  plot  that  we  have  watched  unfold  so  many  times  before  is  just  a  scratch  on  the  surface  of  what  the  movie  is  subconsciously  portraying.  Through  further  scrutiny,  one  can  theorize  that  these  witches  in  movies  tend  to  perpetuate  misogyny   and  matrophobia  in  the  minds  of  viewers  who  are  uneducated  in  areas  like  Women’s   Gender  and  Sexuality Studies.   The  Crucible  ​ is  a  movie  that  tends  to  perpetuate  misogyny  and  matrophobia  through  the  concept  of  witchcraft  because  the  main  conflict  of  the  movie lies in  whether or not a few female  characters  are  witches.  The  plot  of  the movie is entirely devoted to  this conflict.  Wendy Schissel  writes  that,  “In  forty  years  of  criticism  very  little  has  been  said  about  the  ways  in  which  ​ The  Crucible  ​ reinforces  stereotypes  of  ​ femme  fatales  and  cold  and  unforgiving  wives  in  order   to  assert  apparently  universal  virtues”  (1).  The  idea  of  a  ​ femme  fatale  ​ was  originated  in  the  movie  genre  called  ​ film  noir​ ;  the  ​ femme  fatale  is  a  female character that is often cold, emotionless, and  usually  seduces  the  male  protagonist,  leading to the male protagonist’s downfall. This concept is  damaging  to  women  because  it  makes  women  seem  like  they’re  not  trustworthy,  or  just  using  their  looks  and  charm  to   get  ahead  in  life.  In  ​ The  Crucible​ ,  the  character  of  John  Proctor  is  viewed  as  a  “tragically  heroic  common  man”  and  “a just man in a universe  gone mad” while the  innocent  character  of  Elizabeth  does  not  receive  nearly  the  same  treatment  (1).  ​ The  Crucible  accurately  portrays  the  Puritan  values  of  the  movie’s  time  period,  which  held  men  in  a  higher  position  of  respect  than  women, thus  perpetuating  more misogyny and mistrust. Schissel goes on  to  define  a  key  term  that  relates  to  this movie: “Implicit in Puritan theology, in [Arthur] Miller’s  version  of  the  Salem  witch   trials,   and all too frequent in the society which has produced Miller’s  critics  is  gynecophobia   ­  fear  and  distrust  of  women” (1). Similarly, in the ​ Malleus Maleficarum  written  in  1486,  it  is  written  that  “All  witchcraft  comes  from  carnal  lust  which  in  women  is  insatiable”  (1).  It  seems  that ​ The Crucible ​ portrays a pattern of woman­blaming for the problems  of  the society in which they live, possibly out of need for a scapegoat for that society’s problems.
