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.”

  1. Maybe Bigfoot is a witch. Think about it.

    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.

    ok, I think I’ve solved this one:
    Quidditch-tikka-masala anyone?
