a more dignified end than this.

What are you complaining about?

You can take it home and cook it.

Forever and ever, Amen.

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.

Body of Christ, wash over me.

Blood of Christ, intoxicate me.

Water of his wound, wash over me.

Passion of Christ, strengthen me.

Good Jesus, hear me.

Hide me within your wounds.

Do not let me be separated from you,

defend me from the malicious enemy.

In the hour of my death,

call me and bid me to come to you.

That I may praise you with your saints,

forever and ever, Amen.

Reel 2, scene 28, take 4.

Flashback to the priest

pulling a witch's hair out

during her interrogation.


Francesco, come here.

We'll put these here. We're still

not ready with the interrogation clip.

Easy, easy, easy...

Perfect timing.

Get off me!

- What are you having?

- Watermelon.

Me too.

If it stays like this,

we could sunbathe up on the terrace.

Hey, enough! This is not a banquet.

This guy can turn a light bulb into a UFO.

- Really'?

- Let's hear it!

Come on!

He uses it for children's programmes.

It's amazing!

Ask him if he can do bats.

- The power's back.

- All right.

Back to work, guys.

Ask him to do the UFO sound again.

We've got piles of work to get through.

a witch's body

Anyway, it's better to talk when I finish.

OK, bye.

Reel 2, scene 37, take 1.

The dangerously aroused Goblin

and tries in vain to molest Teresa

who makes a swift retreat.


Please, Gilderoy, don't let them hurt me.


One minute, Francesco.

Reel 3, scene 44, take 9.

Flashback to the interrogation of a witch,

in which a red-hot poker is inserted

into her vagina.

Soul of Christ, sanctify me as well.
