Repost: Night of the demon

A re-post from the artchives (original posting date 22 August 2009) - with the blog in its current form over seven years old, I intend to dig up some of the older posts once in a while. I selected this one because it is about 7 years ago and I had forgotten about it completely - while it is well worthwhile, and the video still exists on YouTube.

A fascinating piece of amateur video art found on YouTube. The 1957 movie Night of the demon (called Curse of the demon in the US) inspired Kate Bush in the writing of her songs Hounds of Love and The Red Shoes, as well as her short film, The Line, The Cross & The Curve. This video takes footage from the movie, interweaved with footage of Kate performing her music. A treat.
