Haxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages

Has anyone seen this early 20s silent?

Here's the link to the Criterion DVD on Amazon:

Any Opinions?

Why you little....



By the way, Zwot: Did you try to send me a PM awhile back? My box was full and I finally cleared it.

Well, you know. Those trying to contact the King often have something important to say.

I have seen it, and I think it's got a lot of great imagery. Would be cool to have this playing as background for a Halloween party, maybe put your own music choice on over it. Make a little popcorn, mix up some punch, that'd be a fun time there.

I see. Is it pretty long? And is it informational, or just kind of spooky? And thanks for the feedback, I was beginning to think I dreamt this movie.

There's some really good reviews of it on Amazon that would break down its informative qualities better than I could. I can say that it delivers a wealth of superb spooky, ghoulish imagery, and is a real feast for the eyes.

it's really more propaganda than information. I'm not a witch or anything, but the ones I have known are nothing like they are portrayed in the film. I think it bases a lot of its "facts" on mythology (like the Hell-Fire Club outside of Dublin).

but, like fm2 said, it's really great to watch just for the imagery. it's almost hard to believe that it got made so long ago.
