The Occult: The Truth Behind The Word

What is the Occult? Is it a dark and sinister practice developed by mankind over the millennia in order to manipulate others? Or is it simply that which is not seen by the naked eye?

In this film, OH Krill, Brian Allan and James Earnshaw come together to unlock the mystery, and for the first time definitively explain this enigmatic realm of hidden wisdom, exploring the mysticism of a deeper reality that extends beyond pure reason and the physical sciences, the inner nature to all things.

Religion, shamanism, ritual magick, sacred practices and more are brought forth and put into our modern day perspective. The great master himself, Aleister Crowley, Dr. John Dee, Jack Parsons, L. Ron Hubbard and others are examined.

Is the Occult truly synonymous with demonic possession and satanic worship or is it an empowering practice that predates history? Discover the secret and enter the world of Magick unlocking the key to your personal path.

1.0 out of 5 stars All questions and no answers December 19, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This documentary seems incomplete. There are only stated opinions and questions asked, I could only watched half the movie, many of which are at a basic level. If you are at the curious stage it is a good movie to start your learning but for someone more learned in this subject hold off.

3.0 out of 5 stars Love the Graphics!! June 3, 2011
Format:DVD
I thought the graphics were fantastic in this documentary. I would recommend it just for that. Also The interviews were very convincing and the controversy over all the misunderstandings makes you really put the film into perspective.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive Offering September 29, 2010
By J
Format:DVD
Science and theology have forever battled, with theories offered from both to explain all things unique. The notion of magic is either ridiculed or honored; and those seeking proof of it usually do not find it.

They may, however, finally succeed.

"The Occult: The Truth Behind the Word" is an interesting contradiction (one viewers will not expect). While it speaks of magic and mysticism, it seeks also to strip away the misconceptions of those ideals. It gives its emphasis instead to history--tracing the origins of rituals and too commonly misunderstood philosophies. The intention here is to present the occult in its religious context and viewers will be pleased with the results. The experience is not filled to the typical scandal. It's instead a frank account. This allows it to transcend the usual expectations. It's worth time and consideration.

All should note the occasionally slow pacing, however. The film is offered methodically and this can be a deterrent for those who want immediate results.

As a survey/introduction/history of the occult, this is a good start, but for somebody already into this stuff, it might be too pedestrian. I found the section on Aleister Crowley the most interesting, since I knew almost nothing about him. The film traces the history of occultism, from its beginnings in animism, through the shamans, to pantheism, to monotheism, to alchemists and magicians and eventually the officers/priests/clerics of the current monotheistic religions. It seems to me we may have come full circle, from a time when every person could ask for help from the spirits living in every thing, through a long period where special knowledge was closely held and often used to obtain power, now back to a more individualistic spiritualism, and eventually a more open, non-occult method of relating to our environment. The film, on the other hand, points a shaky finger at the "new shamans," the keepers of nuclear weapons, and the new magic of quantum physics.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mind Opening October 7, 2010
Format:DVD
I have to admit I was a little leery about watching this film. Without really knowing much about it I pretty much had my mind made up that the occult was just something evil, dark and I didn't really want anything to do with witchcraft and such. Of course curiosity got the best of me and I decided I would take a look at this film and find out what is behind the word. Turns out it isn't quite as creepy as I anticipated and like many skeptics to the subject I now have a better understanding and more objective opinion of the subject. I think the pace of the film was a tad slow. I also think some of the image sequences and opening soundtrack created an expectation that the film would be more menacing and ominous than it actually was. All in all, the documentary proved worth watching and very informational but it is definitely geared toward those with an interest in the subject matter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Delves Deeply Into What The Occult Is And Isn't September 24, 2010
Format:DVD
This is an in-depth history and introduction to the occult. Instead of making it seems spooky or evil, the film shows the viewer that occultism is nothing to be afraid of. Throughout history there has been shamanism, ritual magick, and sacred practices that are still being practiced today.

The word "occult" simply means "beyond the range of ordinary knowledge or understanding" but over the centuries it's become synonymous with satanic worship and black magick. Nothing could be further from the truth!

I enjoyed the parts of this film that focused on L. Ron Hubbard and Aleister Crowley. If you're new to the subject of the occult or just want to set some fearful naysayers straight, this is a solid film to do just that.
