Beyond Lemuria is an allegory of good and evil intentions. Two groups of mystic seekers are played by the same actors. The sinister "Draconians" search for ancient super-scientific secrets of power in the caverns under Mt. Shasta, while their counterparts, the "Lothinians" seek spiritual enlightenment by climbing America's Holy Mountain. Both groups find what they are seeking and get what they deserve.Written by

We actually created a fictitious 1920 silent movie "Phylos of Atlantis" for our Mt. Shasta documentary section. You'll find "F. Cranston Brigg's silent epic listed in the credits. See more »
An Occult Fim made by real Occultists
Beyond Lemuria is not like any Hollywood film you've ever seen. It is more than simply escapist entertainment. One might say it is "infotainment" because it deals with two important elements of American folklore that Hollywood has completely ignored: the mystic avatars of California's mysterious Mt. Shasta who claimed to derive their wisdom from Atlantis and Lemuria, and the 1940s revelations by Richard S. Shaver of ancient Elder Gods from outer space whose degenerate survivors still inhabit a vast cavern network. These two related themes are woven together in a storyline that uses documentary footage to familiarize the viewer with these forgotten mysteries, leading into a dramatic contrast between two esoteric groups who travel to Mt. Shasta. One group seeks the ancient secrets of super-science from the degenerate Deros deep in the caverns under the mountain, while the other group climbs to the heights to receive spiritual enlightenment. Actual cavern and mountain locations at Mt. Shasta were extensively used, lending authenticity to the strange story. The dramatic story line begins in an occult initiation ceremony where the candidate must choose between good and evil. Beyond Lemuria is best described as a modern medieval morality play. If the viewer keeps this initial scene in mind there will be no difficulty understanding the story -- or the message. Hollywood could not and would not make a film like this, so regardless of it faults, Beyond Lemuria is significant. You've never seen anything like it.
