Riivaaja

A woman dressed in black is holding a candle, spitting fire and drooling. Then, in reverse, she takes the spit and fire back into her mouth. The act is repeated in a loop. “I don’t want to be bad, somehow the demon just slips out before I can hold my tongue. To the one you care most about, whom you want to protect from all evil, you can say the worst things. And while you do it, you know you can’t take it back.”
