The anonymous film shows a masked figure in a black monk's cowl perform a number of eerie gestures in a derelict building as weird droning sound is heard.
The distorted black and white footage and soundtrack is unsettling – but when the symbols are analysed things start to get REALLY scary.
Hidden messages give the GPS co-ordinates of the White House, contain graphic images of a woman being tortured and warn: "You have 1 year or less."

The video's catchy title – 01101101 01110101 01100101 01110010 01110100 01100101 – is binary code.
When converted to letters it spells out muetre – Spanish for DEATH.
A description of the video – which was posted on Youtube and sent to a Swedish tech blog in a DVD also containing SATANIC imagery – is also in binary code.
When deciphered it translates as: "You have 1 year or less".

The haunting audio track appears to be nothing but white noise.
But when the screeching sound is represented visually it reveals an image of a woman being tied up or tortured and the chilling message: "You are already dead."
When the audio from the DVD's main menu is similarly displayed – using a spectrogram – it uncovers a picture of a skull.

“At worst, its a terrorist threat or the work of some killer.”A Reddit user
Frame-by-frame analysis of the footage unearths morse code and a set of numbers.
The the numbers are the GPS co-ordinates for the White House and the morse code spells outREDLIPSLIKETENTH – an anagram of "kill the president".
Other symbols from the bizarre video – including the figure's body movements – are yet to be decoded.
The video has been uploaded to Youtube a number of times.
User AETBX – who uploaded the oldest version – denies making it and told a tech blog a female friend found a disc containing the video in a park.
The DVD sent to the Swedish blog was reportedly sent from a Polish address.
Some netizens have suggested it is a promo for a video game – but others believe it is the work of a mass murderer.
One Reddit user wrote: "I don’t think its a promo, like I did at first.
"In the spectrogram there are clearly images of women being tortured.
"At best its some weird hacker shit or a terrible decision by some PR company.
"At worst, its a terrorist threat or the work of some killer."
