Julie Atlas Muz,
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
In the newspaper article about the "massage parlour atrocity", there are a few typos and editing errors such as "She was know [sic] to be into the occult...", "there are suspicion [sic] that this is [sic] terrible event is in someway [sic] linked..." and the like, and the third-last sentence ends abruptly: "The tutor has a shaven head and according to girls who work at the parlour he carries a cane which he violently."

On the seventh day the king gave me a golden medal, bearing on one side the words ART IS THE PRIESTESS OF NATURE and on the other NATURE IS THE DAUGHTER OF TIME.
The movie reminded me of Succubus XXX, except that it has slightly less boning and a more confusing plot. The story is that Aleister Crowley is reincarnated in the year 2000 and gets up to stuff, which involves urinating on students, crucifying cats and stealing other people's clothes. All of this is quite funny, if you know Crowley's actual work and biography, and Crowley himself would undoubtedly get a good laugh out of it. Simon Callow does a good job portraying the charismatic magician, even though his performance is over the top at times. The plot, however, is a mess. Crowley's goal in the movie is to perform a ritual called Chemical Wedding, but it is never made clear what exactly the ritual involves, or why Crowley needs it. The movie uses a lot of big words it obviously doesn't understand, probably in an attempt to impress viewers that are even more ignorant, but succeeds only at being an incomprehensible jumble of occult and scientific concepts. A jumble that contains quite a lot of boobs, however, so there is that. I suppose the first movie about Crowley could have done worse.
