Fantasia (1940)

“The last segment of the 1940 movie Fantasia features the devil Chernabog who awakes on Bald Mountain and is seen torturing restless souls and throwing them into a fiery volcano.  What I particularly love about that piece is that Chernabog is banished by the chorus of monks chanting Ave Maria as the journey into the nearby cathedral.”    -Samuel Gray
