One of my favorite documentaries of all time is the Occult Experience. Produced in 1989, it shows an array of people involved in occult activities. Among these are Anton LaVey, leader of the Church of Satan from his earlier “Satanis” production, and Michael Aquino and his wife, Lilith, both leaders of the Temple of Set. I like that Satanism was included in this documentary with a straightforward angle, actually getting interviews with the people involved in Satanism and Witchcraft.
This documentary also explores witchcraft with Selena Fox doing an outdoor ritual with her coven. Then they move on to the path of Alexandrian Witchcraft, with a special appearance by the King of the Witches, Alex Sanders in a revealing skyclad ritual. The path of Dianic Wicca is also explored with Z Budapest, a feminist witch. These paths are discussed showing what it is like for a solitary practitioner or in a group setting, for one who belongs to a coven.
In combination with all of this the fantasy artist H R Geiger’s work is discussed with the artist himself. It’s a short documentary packed with information about how Occultism thrived during that era. It’s definitely worth a watch just to see what occultists do. This is a delightful documentary! Below is a preview of this wonderful documentary.
Unfortunately this item is only available as a VHS at Amazon. Hopefully someday they will reissue it as a DVD.
