Feature: ‘Season of the Witch’ and The Black Plague

The “Black Plague” took an estimated one hundred millions lives within several outbreaks that occurred over three hundred years – the deadliest of which was in the late 1300′s. It was one of the worst pandemics in human history, and wiped out Europe so bad, that their population didn’t recover until the 1800′s. History has it that the bubonic plague, borne from Chinese fleas that fed on rats that carried the disease, was the cause of this widespread Hell – carried into Europe via merchants along the silk trade routes. Season of the Witch begs the question – could this morose lesion in time have actually been borne from a source much more evil? John Marrone explores this question in the following special feature. Season of the Witch arrive in theaters January 7.
