This video was created by editing footage from the 1922 Benjamin Christensen film "Haxan." (IMDb title page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0013257/)
The song "Black Sabbath" is by the Chicago-based occult rock group "Coven" from their classic 1969 album "Witchcraft Destroys Minds And Reaps Souls." I understand the bewitching singer Jinx has reformed the band in recent years.
This is one of my most popular videos on another video hosting site which shall remain nameless. I hope you will enjoy it even more here on the wonderful Internet Archive.
If you enjoy this video you will be pleased to learn that Coven vocalist Jinx Dawson now has a mysapce and is welcoming new friends. www.myspace.com/jinxdawson

Good first half...
This, like the other music videos I've seen, starts out well with great images (albeit from a great silent film), but quickly runs out of ideas and repeats the same clips over and over. By the halfway mark I've lost interest. You have talent, but I would like to see a narrative that constantly moves forward instead of swirling around the drain of tiresome repetition.
