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>

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."

Interesting but not quite there
28 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The premise was interesting though a bit convoluted.

The acting and directing were acceptable.

The one thing that ruined this film for me was the sound editing. Perhaps it was the copy I watched.

Perhaps it is really the way it was edited.

Dialog so low you cannot hear followed by a crappy musical score that blared every time it came in. If you are a fan of the music guy, and I am not, it may work for you. To me, the balance between music and dialog was totally amateur at best and ruined what could have been a very interesting movie.
