Has anyone seen Sacred Rites? Is it any good, i know nothing about it?

Whilst i like Legend of the Witches, i have it on dvd but it's not something i'd look to upgrade purely because it is only a documentary and doesn't merit a lot of viewings in my opinion.

Yeah, saw it some years ago at a screening as part of a Fantastic Films Weekend at the Media Museum in Bradford. It's an exploitation 'documentary'- i.e the whole thing looks laughably staged and there's a lot of nudity. Funny and kitsch but it's not the kind of thing I'd race to buy on blu-ray. There's a good write up of it in a recent book- "The Bodies Beneath"- by the people behind the BFI Flipside.

Thanks. I have The Bodies Beneath and have now read it. Together with the extras it sounds worth getting.

Here's the proper cover art. (To be honest i preferred the TBC version :makelikeatree:)

Worldwide Blu-ray debut including the longest cut of Legend of the Witches ever released
Newly recorded commentary on Secret Rites by Flipside founders Vic Pratt and William Fowler

The Witch’s Fiddle (1924, 7 mins): possibly the first student film ever made, this tale of a magical instrument was shot by the newly formed Cambridge University Kinema Club
Out of Step: Witchcraft (1957, 14 mins): investigative journalist and charismatic Soho bon vivant Dan Farson presents this polite yet probing, nuanced TV documentary about witchcraft
