Well made, but dull
15 April 2006 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

Narrated by Cameron Mitchell, this is a look at death and the possibility of life after death. The filmmakers visit a strange cemetery in Mexico where mummies are stored in underground tunnels then proceed to Egypt to look at the Cairo Museum and the Valley of the Kings. Next, they travel to India to interview a swami and get his philosophy on death. Finally, they return to the United States. Here, they examine the work of a doctor in Tennessee who believes in the possibility of near-death experiences and an afterlife. The film concludes with a look at the work of a hypnotist who places a woman into a trance and conducts past life regression. This final segment is comparatively lengthy since the filmmakers go to the trouble to check out her claims of her life and death in Corning, Ohio in the nineteenth century. Though there is an interviewer in each case, he is never clearly seen and Cameron Mitchell provides the narrative voice-over.

At the time this was released, the subject was probably not tired and worn out. Further, it is fairly well made when compared to many similar documentaries of the 1970s. Despite this, the film itself is plodding and is made from the point of view of believers in the subject matter. Even those interested in the subject or who are entertained by 1970s pseudoscience should probably pass on this one.
