Quick Link: Cinema of the Occult

The Cinema of the Occult

Movie-goers have long known that magic is a theme that packs the theaters like no other.  The mystique and thrill of spells and spellcasters can take a boring story and inject a hot dose of excitement.  But so much for fireballs and love potions.  What about when the deeper mysteries hit the screen?

This week's Quick Link features an impressive list of movies from a variety of genres, eras, and styles that play upon the themes of ritual, evocation, alchemy, and other methods of exploration into the hidden recesses of the world.  You'll recognize occult concepts, symbols, rites, and names and be given plenty to think about afterward.

So gather your friends and a bowl of popcorn as you delve into the gritty world of occult cinema.  Even the goriest of slasher flicks, when the occult is carefully applied, can become the seed of a thousand revealing discussions.

About Me

My photo

My name is Quill and I've been practicing witchcraft for the past 17 years. 10 of those years I've been reading tarot and teaching.  I own a shop on Etsy called Quill's Occult Supply (check it out at QuillsOccultSupply.Etsy.com) full of handmade ritual and decorative items, spell components, and wild picked herbs.

I love to work with my hands.  Magic is a tool to shape our lives, and I'm using magic to shape tools to shape magic.  Cosmic! 

I use a lot of my favorite things in my shop: herbs, candles, wood, fabric, paint, clay.  And I get to carve, burn, grind, mold, think, dream ... I'm in the perfect business!

I've written 3 manuscripts for publication (2 non-fiction and 1 fiction) and am an avid NaNo-er!  I and my husband run a local coven called Orbis Prosapia, and our children are growing up surrounded by magic, mythology, fairy tales, Earth worship, art, open discussion, music, and humor. 

In addition to working on Ex Penna about my experiences as a professional witch, I also write for Scenes from the Circle about being a coven leader.
