Written and produced from 1919 to 1921 by Denmark's master of silent horror Benjamin Christensen, HAXAN, or to use the fully anglicised title, WITCHCRAFT THROUGH THE AGES is a bizarre curio that was decades ahead of its time. Indeed the film was banned outside of Sweden for many, many years and only appeared in a severely truncated form in America during 1929, a time when Christensen and a multitude of other European filmakers had succumbed to Hollywood's feverish bid to import foreign talent.
That is a brief summary of the movie I watched yesterday...the most incredible evil disguises I have seen in years.Christensen gives a very good explanation of what it was the conception of Withcraft in the earlies 1920´s.
Well today I started my new class and it seems I am going to enjoy my class because my students are really nice and good.
For today I have no plans at all... well only to attend my afternoon class and return home at night so I can start finally the written body of my Monography.
I have finished the Cover I promised to Bonita Anita so in a couple of days I will load the cover of FAIR BLUES...by the way... DADICUS would you be interested in coloring the piece? :)
And I am drawing a teaser poster for Rocket Girl also.:)
Have a great day and no I haven´t received a mail back from Caramel Eyes yet! :)
