Freak of the Week: Häxan

by Lewis Manalo

This Friday the 13th, check out Häxan, the freakiest silent film to ever crawl out of Scandinavia. I stupid, but as far as I can tell the film is a documentary about witchcraft. There’s a whole lotta cool-looking devils and ugly Scandinavian ladies, equally freaky monks and cute Scandinavian witches kissing Satan’s hairy ass. And a kleptomaniac. The production design and cinematography will blow. your. mind.

See it with a bud, but leave that shit that makes you paranoid at home. It plays this Friday the 13th at the MOMA, or check it out online here. (It’s pretty rad if you set the movie to Black Sabbath.)
