  • Short Summary

    Strange item with man (looks like clergyman) with numerous skulls.

  • Description

    Priest with skulls. Location of events unknown.

    Bizarre scene. Priest in suit but with ecclesiastical collar. Has a lot of human skulls on table in front of him. He takes a skull; looks at it; sets it back down; then does the same with most of the others; picking them up and glancing at them; as if looking for a particular one. In the middle of the skulls he also picks up a long bone- -thigh bone ?

    Then CU priest talking and making broad gestures; raising his arm upward; shaking his fists; etc. No indication of whose skulls these are. Spooky; eerie; weird; macabre; death; skeleton; bones. Cut to shot of the priest & another man standing outdoors near a small stone bridge over a stream.
