Weekly Eldritch: Fantasia / Night on Bald Mtn

This week’s item of creepiness is the Night on Bald Mountain segment of Disney’s 1940 film Fantasia. Now the music by Mussorgsky is pretty dramatically frightening all by itself, so adding a host of demons to the top of said mountain just adds to the scariness.

(If the above doesn’t play for you, click here for a short clip.

The giant demon’s name is Chernabog… isn’t he incredible? If any of you are true fans of the art of animation, I highly recommend watching Fantasia. Artistically stunning, despite moments of high cheese.
