4.0 out of 5 stars neato November 5, 2004
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
This is actually pretty damn cool.. It's a good documentary for the 80s and I would recommend this to any Pagan, Witch or Occultist. It's entertaining and covers a broad area of topics. It's just a cool find; especially sociologically interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars occultism on camera April 9, 2007
Format:VHS Tape

directed by Frank Heimans

approx. 87 minutes

This is an Australian documentary on various forms of Paganism. It shows some of the major players and different factions of a world most people don't know much about.

Things get underway by going into the "dark side" of groups such as San Fransisco's Church of Satan and Temple of Set. The "Church" was started by huckster Anton LaVey who sold his Nietzsche-lite beliefs as a greedy form of self-worship. The clips of LaVey are from the 1968 documentary 'SATANIS'. Temple of Set founder Michael Aquino and his wife Lilith Sinclair are interviewed. Aquino shows off an authentic Nazi dagger he owns and explains that National Socialists such as Himmler also had a deep interest in the occult. Aquino is a former Green Beret Colnel who broke away from the Church of Satan to start his own group. Col. Aquino's name was circulated in the media during the 1980s "Satanic ritual abuse" scare. He was accused of molestation at the Presidio Army day care and later in various books such as 'THE NEW SATANISTS' and 'PAINTED BLACK'. All cases involving Aquino were either settled or thrown out of court.

Next we move to the American Midwest to drop in on Selena Fox, who started a place for nature paganism called "Circle Sanctuary". The language used by Fox is more New Age sounding ("love consciousness", "Jesus was a witch", etc.). Her group is shown doing an incantation.

From here we go to Mr. Alex Sanders, the "King of Witches".

4.0 out of 5 stars Which is Witch January 22, 2007
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
The Occult Experience was a great way to see some people that are not usually seen. Some I actually have met in the years that I went to Pagan festivals. It was wonderful to see Margot again, and took me back to the days when we talked. It was also great to see Stewart and Janet Farrar and to see the eccentricity that is legendary of Alex Sanders. The only negativities I had was the addition of the Radical Christian exocism. It seemed out of place. I felt that the section on Giger was out of place tooIt also didn't draw enough of a line between the differences betrween Witchcraft and Satanism, though that was explained. It overall was trip down memory lane.
