Guest Post - Ruby Dominguez


Salem, Massachusettes 17th Century- a bizarre and deadly detour in American dark history.

The banality of evil which pervades 17th Century Salem, Massachusetts is captured by the screenwriter with penetrating insight as we follow one young woman's deadly encounter with the forces of Good and Evil.

The Salem Witch Hunt Curse - was invoked by Thomas Cane, THE PERUKE MAKER with divine condemnation and deathly vengeance upon the society and people responsible for his daughter, Bridget's death at Gallows Hill.

He meticulously weaves a few straws of hair at a time and pulls each back into a tight knot.

Many hours passed and finally, he sets the wig on Bridget’s bloody, grotesque head as he bows his head in meditation, he recites an incantation with tears streaming down his old and sad, yet vengeful face.

An unsettling waft of cold breeze passes through the room and makes the wig sway and a spell is cast upon the wig and takes a life of its own.

Blood starts to trickle down Bridget’s lifeless, tortured, look face amidst the Banshee’s forlorn wails echoing over Gallows Hill.

THE PERUKE MAKER’S ~ vengeful curse hastens chase for the innocent and is carried off by a whirl of ill-omened wind that transgresses all natural laws of time and space.

The Salem Witch Hunt Curse unearthed from necromancy, violates the course of natural events in a modern day world, relentlessly in quest for the avenger of innocent blood.

We follow the unforgettable spiritual and emotional journey of Bridget Cane, a stunning 17th century woman and Sarah, a product of the 21st century who are inextricably bound together in a tenuous journey that comes full circle.

Where love and forgiveness triumphs over evil, transcending the grave in a magical and symbolic act of rebirth at the stroke of midnight of the Autumnal Equinox.
