Raul Artigot, the Spanish cinematographer, lensed such early 1970s Jess Franco films as LES DEMONS, EROTIC RITES OF FRANKENSTEIN, among others. The same year (1972) he directed his first film, the highly atmospheric erotic witchcraft thriller THE WITCHES' MOUNTAIN. Here are some images from three scenes cut by censors of the time. This is an obscure but worthwhile film which  features a unique, eerie score by Fernando Garcia Morcillo, who also composed music for Jess Franco's LOS BLUES CALLE POP. This really deserves a good DVD release if a good print can be found.
