The Occult - The Truth Behind The Word

 The Occult: The Truth Behind the Word 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.
