"To-night the witches will ride, will ride, 
Each on her broomstick astride, astride, 
Silent and swift in their mystic flight 
Upward they’ll go in the cold, black night.
And the wind will sob, and shriek, and moan, 
The great trees shudder, and shake, and groan. 
The moon will hide in the murky sky, 
In the forest dark the bats will fly.
And owls will hoot, and wolves will howl 
And green-eyed cats in the shadows prowl. 
To-night the witches will ride, will ride, 
Each on her broomstick, astride, astride."

Day 18: Psychotronic Documentaries
WITCHCRAFT THROUGH THE AGES - 
Originally released in 1922 as HAXAN, but this version was edited together in 1968, featuring a jazz score and narration by William S. Burroughs (upping the psychotronic factor considerably). The original 1922 film was a Swedish/Danish co-production from Benjamin Christensen that was acclaimed in the Scandinavian countries upon it's release, but was actually banned in the United States from 1922 to 1929 due to explicit (for that time) scenes of violence, torture, and degradation (the witchcraft and satanism aspect probably played into the ban as well). Of course, it's gone on to finally get the respect that it's due, being Benjamin Christensen's masterpiece and one of the greatest films of the silent era.

Häxan (Witchcraft Through the Ages) - 1922 brought us this silent, Swedish/Danish documentary about superstition, witchcraft, and Satanism. Part informational and also part fiction (with entertaining vignettes), this horror/documentary sets out to explain the "Malleus Maleficarum" - so most of the imagery is medieval in nature. With nudity, sexuality, scenes of torture, the devil, demons, depictions of hell, witches flying through the air, and whatnot - this film was considered very mature for its age. Although the film's facts aren't necessarily the most historically accurate, it does stay true to the source material. I'd highly recommend checking this horror-docu out if you're into witches, witchcraft, witch trials, the occult, Satanism, medieval imagery, Halloween, or pretty much the horror genre in general. It is silent and black&white; but is accompanied with music (I have the orchestra version and smooth jazz version too 😂) Check out "Häxan" and chat with me when you have - I'd love to talk about it with you. #horror #horrormovie #horrormovies #horrorfilm #horrorfan #häxan #haxan #häxanwitchcraftthroughtheages #haxanwitchcraftthroughtheages #häxan1922

One of the most beautiful silent films ever made, Danish filmmaker Benjamin Christensen’s ‘Häxan’ (1922). It was shortened and released as ‘Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages’ in 1968. This version was narrated by William S. Burroughs. #haxan #haxanwitchcraftthroughtheages

"Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages"(1922), directed by Benjamin Christensen:
A hybrid of documentary and terrifying vignettes, this silent film explores the history of witchcraft, demonology and satanism. The vignettes accurately depict the superstitions and beliefs of the time surrounding witchcraft. They include a masterful depiction of Satan, played by Christensen himself, throughout the film. It's representation of witchcraft ends with Christensen's theory that mental illnesses may have been what plagued many of the women criminalized during the notorious witch-hunts and that, in today's society, such illnesses would be met with the desire to cure as opposed to persecution fueled by sheer ignorance.
Although it won acclaim in Denmark and Sweden, the film was banned in the U.S. and heavily censored in other countries for what were considered at that time to be graphic scenes of torture, nudity and sexual perversion.

Now watching Benjamin Christensen's 1922 silent classic from Sweden, HAXAN: WITCHCRAFT THROUGH THE AGES, with my love @horror_is_my_thang. In this pic is the Criterion DVD and the MPI Home Video VHS release, narrated by William S. Burroughs. Picked up that VHS back when it first came out in 1990. The Criterion DVD features both the original silent film and the version narrated by Burroughs. The book is "The History of Witchcraft and Demonology" by Montague Summers, originally published in 1926. In 1928 Summers also published the first English translation of the "Malleus Maleficarum" (aka The Witches Hammer"), which was the notorious manual used for the identification and extermination of witches, first published in Europe in 1487 and written in Latin by Catholic clergyman Heinrich Kramer.

Shocking and highly controversial at the time of its release, HÄXAN (1922) has since garnered status as an essential silent film, a strange concoction of documentary, fiction and animation unlike anything of its time, or anything since. While the notion of black magic remained a sensitive topic in the 20's - a dark cloud of paranoia, fear and violence that lingered from the cruel witch trials of the past - HÄXAN (the Swedish word for Witch) can now be viewed as a sensible and fascinating historical study of witchcraft with remarkably eerie, fable-like aesthetics. - CO

Haxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages.
B&W documentary about witchcraft with a very large helping of Satan. Awesome imagery and effects for 1922.

Now watching, Haxan: Witchcraft through the ages. Would you believe it if I said this silent docu-horror film was from 1922. It's about the study of how superstition and the misunderstanding of diseases and mental illness led to the hysteria of witch-hunts. #criterioncollection #criterion #haxan #witchhunting #haxanwitchcraftthroughtheages #movies #film #cinema #cinephile #silentdocuhorror #benjaminchristensen

Very interesting #SilentFilm on people's beliefs about #TheDevil & #Witchcraft through the ages. I myself am not part of any #Occult nor am I a #Witch #Sorceror or #DevilWorshipper !
I am an admirer of film...I especially find Silent Films intriguing.
