4. The Crucible

The Crucible is just … phenomenal. Whether you read the play, see the play, or see the movie, it's a fantastic representation about what Salem was like during the infamous witch trials. As such it's one of the most realistic movies about witchcraft I've ever seen (although I can honestly say that you haven't experienced it until you've actually seen the play in Salem). While there are dramatizations, of course, Arthur Miller did an incredible job depicting all the atrocities that occurred in Salem during 1692 – and I'm not referring to the actions of the accused witches, either.
