Silent Horror: Haxan: Witchcraft Through The Ages

This is an absolute early horror classic--much in the same vein as Nosferatu, only much more tabu (taboo) and underground--more akin in it's surreal and occultic nature to The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari than it's famous Murnau vampire cousin, also a film from 1922.  Also, many people think this is a German film; in fact, it is Swedish.  One of my all time favorites.  Word about the print here.  It's Criterion Collection--restored to full glory!!  The music is terrible.  So I am viewing it with the soundtrack to Dario Argento's classic 1975 witch horror Suspiria by goblin--very effective!
