This fragment is of unknown origin but may have come from BLACK MESSIAH, a U.S./Italian co-production that J.X. Williams directed in 1975. In this sequence, religious and lepidopterological imagery is blended to disquieting effect.

Totally love this crazy ass work of J. X. Williams the more I see. The scope of exploration and layers of imagery parallel some of the greatest minds with roots far back to Tatlin, surrealism op, kinetic and other fine art and music and poster art from the 60's Matrix and Fillmore set to motion. Seems like David Lynch might have also been influenced by his work.

Creepy, surrealist imagery. Looks like the result of a bad acid trip. I wish the whole film was intact, this is awesome footage. Five stars.

Trippy and distrubing

Employs religious iconography and foreboding music to disturbing ends. Would make a perfect accompaniment to The Exorcist, The Omen or any other satanic-themed horror film.

An awesome slice of nunsploitative pink butterfly crucifixion smoke. Right On.
