    Great uploads this week! Thanks a ton for these…

    If there was any chance of you upping The Black Crystal (1991) with the commentary track from the recent Vinegar Syndrome blu ray, that would be fantastic. Either way – thank you and keep up the good work, this site is such a cool fucking resource!

    Mr.G – I echo those sentiments. Both versions of ‘Häxan’ are fascinating. I actually prefer the Burroughs’ narrated version. His creepy, decadent voice fits the images perfectly.

    Major witchcraft influence in the genre is the Danish Häxan (1922) dir.Benjamin Christensen, fully graphic/banned, reedited and released in the States as Witchcraft Through the Ages (1968) with William Burroughs narration. The 1922 original is presently fully restored to 105mins, RL if either/both versions are available would be awesome to upload!

    This is my favorite of Lon Jr.’s Inner Sanctums, along with ‘Strange Confession’. It’s also one of the first (possibly the first) film treatment of Fritz Leiber’s 1940 novel ‘Conjure Wife’. Another great version of this story is ‘Night of the Eagle’ AKA ‘Burn Witch Burn’ (1962) which Rarelust has also. Culturally and historically this story is important in the witchcraft genre as one of the first, along with ‘The Seventh Victim’ (1943), to bring witchcraft into a contemporary setting; distant relatives to Polanski’s ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ (1968). Wild and wooly collection this week, thanks, RL!
