A photo I took in a window at night on my street—kind of reminds me of a scene in Dario Argento’s Suspiria.

“You can find meanness in the least of creatures, but when God made man the devil was at his elbow. A creature that can do anything. Make a machine. And a machine to make the machine. And evil that can run itself a thousand years, no need to tend it.”
— Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian or the Evening Redness in the West (via danielcharles)

Recently I was at a house that’s supposed to be a real haunted house, and it is said that many people have reported seeing a face in an upper window on the side. Well I took several pictures of it that day, and just recently connected my phone to my computer for the first time, so I could look more closely at the photos. Here is a cropped version of one of them, where I thought I saw something. I swear the only thing I did to this photo was adjust the brightness, contrast, and sharpness a little bit. Look at the pane of glass, middle right. I seem to see a sad or wistful, clown-like face, downturned mouth, dark eyes, white on the forehead, coming down the bridge of the nose, and some white on the chin—like makeup. They’re looking to the left, over their right shoulder, their body turned a bit to their left, their left side blocked by/behind the window frame. What can it be?

An interesting (and apparently rare) yet often highly inaccurate and sensationalistic documentary. Interesting as a historical piece, for footage of Doreen Valiente and Eleanor Bone, and for the history professor toward the beginning. In the second half it starts making ridiculous connections, confusing witchcraft and Satanism, and giving far too much time to two highly deluded doofuses—one with mutton chops, the other a seemingly well spoken grey haired gent mad as a hatter. The matter of “fact” nature, and the highly detailed accounts they both give of their delusions, calls into question whether they should be walking about loose. There’s also a brief part with another man, a priest I think, who was supposed to be our vision of sane legitimate religion, casting the devil out of someone. He begins to jerk about, and shake and sputter and twitch and headbang and gibber: right…seems legit. Still there are interesting parts, areas where they get things right historically and/or religiously, even if these are outweighed by nonsense and delusion.
