Storyline

In 1947, noted Satanist Aleister Crowley dies. In Cambridge, 43 years later, with the help of a computer, Crowley's spirit takes over the body of Haddo, a mild-mannered, stuttering don. Over four days, as Crowley prepares for an occult extravaganza, bodies pile up, Crowley's elect engage in rites of passage, and Lia, a red-headed campus reporter, sniffs out a story that puts her in grave danger. Mathers, a scientist recently arrived from Cal Tech, may hold the key to her destiny. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Cool, if you understand...
15 January 2010 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

The movie is cool, if you understand what it is about. If not, you will end up writing some silly nonsense as others have. If you cannot understand what the movie is about, then why answer here at all? What on earth gives you the idea, this is the movie's fault? If you do not know Alister Crowley, that is not a crime, but in spite of not knowing the subject, to still have an opinion and even wanting that opinion to be taken seriously is, I am sorry: stupid! I have worked on the man at University and can confirm that what is said about him in the movie is all more or less factual. Continuing his story in the way the movie does is legitimate. After all, this is a movie!

Do not feel bad if this over your head, but not everything can be as silly and foolish as Avatar and the likes....

If you have ever been interested in the occult, then is for you. The only thing I disliked about this movie, is something I hate in all movies that do that. The absurdly extreme changes of the sound level. That has a kind of horror effect, which should be limited to movies for 12 year olds....
