Documentary: ‘The Power of the Witch’ (1971)

Check out this rare documentary on witchcraft. The late sixties and early seventies were, in my opinion, a boom time for paranormal-themed and generally spooky documentaries. Something about the slightly-warped sound and spotty visuals make these aged peeks into times past seem even more effective than modern fare like “Finding Bigfoot”

    Maybe Bigfoot is a witch. Think about it.

      Witchfoot would be an excellent name for a stoner metal band.

        Good call.

  • VaudeVillain

    The first woman sounds to have embraced the Great Heresy of believing that her religious invocations were, primarily, for her own benefit: that the ritual was given purpose by the experience of it, rather than by any objective goal.

    Michael Bakewell’s coiffure certainly has a rather preternatural aire.
