"You take the blue pill, the story ends.
You wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe.
You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes."
- Heinrich Institoris, Brother of the Dominican order, 1487, Cologne Germany

HEXENHAMMER is a “side-splittingly hilarious”, kaleidoscopic adaptation of Die Hexenhammer, the viral 15th century guide to witch-hunting that almost outsold the Bible.
