We no longer sit in church staring terrified at the frescoes of the devils. The witch no longer flies away on her broom over the rooftops. But isn't superstition still rampant among us?
Häxan (1922) dir. Benjamin Christensen

horror sub-genres • folk horror
 folk horror uses elements of folklore to invoke fear in its audience. typical elements include a rural setting and themes of isolation, religion, the power of nature, and the potential darkness of rural landscapes. although related to supernatural horror films, many derive their horror from the actions and beliefs of people rather than explicitly supernatural elements; the primary focus of the stories is often upon naïve outsiders coming up against these forces.

SUBLIME CINEMA #445 - HAXAN
One of the earliest horror films attempts to describe the incidence of witchcraft as neurological disorder - that evil might all be in the mind, heaven and hell both on earth.

Matti Bye Ensemble - Häxan - a live soundtrack to the 1922 film (a.k.a. Witchcraft Through the Ages) by Benjamin Christensen
This soundtrack to the cult 1926 silent Swedish film, HÄXAN, is from a live recording at the San Francisco Silent Film Festival in 2010. It’s an appropriately moody and mysterious blend of real instrumentation (piano, violin, organ, glockenspiel, musical saw) and electronic treatments. Perfectly suited to this dark and twisted film, it will transport you to the magic and madness of the Medieval witch hunts. HÄXAN - Soundtrack from a live recording from The San Francisco Silent Film Festival in 2010. Matti Bye - Piano and live electronics Laura Naukkarinen (Lau Nau) - Voice and electronics Lotta Johansson - Violin, electric violin and musical saw Kristian Holmgren - Pumporgan Music composed and performed by Matti Bye Ensemble

It’s December 12th, so it’s time for my annual “Advent” calendar of sorts. This is Number 12 in a series of bits of holiday nonsense that I’ve put together over the years. If I have time, I may try to come up with a few more this year.
