"The film draws upon elements of the old witch-hunts that happened most famously in Salem, Wisconsin"

An interview with Lars von Trier about his controversial new film, Antichrist, which references the famous witch trials in Salem, er... Wisconsin.

I have heard Salem in Massachusetts being confused with Salem in New Hampshire, but "Salem, Wisconsin" is hilarious.

The interview is also worth reading for other reasons - e.g. why the film is currently having censorship problems in Japan.
