Two Phantasmic Movie Clips

I never would have thought the dream sequence from Hitchcock's "Spellbound" (designed by Salvador Dali) could be any spookier, yet here it is. And, on a similar note, the black sabbath scene from "Haxan" (1922). If there is a hell, you'll probably go there just for watching this. There's no soundtrack for this clip, but you can see the whole movie restored to its original version, with an orchestral score and color tinted film, on the recently released criterion dvd. UPDATE!

Yes, #3 seems to be the obvious solution.

Have to say that the demon "churning the butter" is possibly the thinnest metaphor I've ever seen.
