A great Documentary asking where evil comes from in our world
Shock-rocker Marilyn Manson, horror novelist Poppy Z. Brite, a Catholic archbishop and exorcist, director John Carpenter and various academics appear in the sensational documentary.
"Evil" hop-scotches around its subject, giving equal weight to the dubious and the profound. Yet this curious spook-house tour is not without its moments.
There is actual footage of an FBI profiler interviewing a serial killer in prison, scenes of a mass exorcism, and a thoughtful meditation on the evils of slavery by Temple University professor Dr. Molefi Kete Asante.
One of the most interesting discussions is of the Nazi party's obsession with the occult, its study of Tibetan Buddhism, and the creation of an S.S. castle, complete with a mythic round-table which served as a kind of "Satanic Vatican" of evil.
