Haxan – Witchcraft Through The Ages (1968 )
by Benjamin Christensen

Haxan (1922)  is a Swedish/Danish film by Benjamin Christensen. The film was banned in the United States and heavily censored in other countries for what were considered at that time graphic depictions of torture, nudity, and sexual perversion. In 1968, an abbreviated version of the film (77 minutes as opposed to the original’s 104 minutes) was released, entitled Witchcraft Through The Ages. This version featured an eclectic jazz score by Daniel Humair (played by a quintet including Jean-Luc Ponty on violin and Daniel Humair on percussion) and dramatic narration by William S. Burroughs.
