Storyline

In 1947, noted Neo-Pagan 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>

Far from good
15 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

The story is good. However the actors are not good enough and the plot is terrible. Hopefully a remake of this movie will be done someday with a better budget to exploit at the maximum the story. I love Iron Maiden music, an deeply respect Bruce Dickinson for his achievements. However, being completely sincere, they are not good with the video stuff. I can't understand why since they are very theatrical in their concerts. But anybody who loves Iron Maiden music and had watch their videos I think will agree they are HORRIBLE with all respect. I think Bruce can write (althou not alone) but he needs to be surrounded by a better team. Can you imagine if this movie were directed by let's say Christopher Nolan starring Anthony Hopkins and some real actors? Come on Bruce, you can do it better!
