The Occult In Movies
Indeed, Occult in movies can be a daring occurrence as they examine you on an extreme emotional level, stripping you off, revealing you in all your vulnerabilities and fears and interrogation of faith, life and human actuality in a manner that is fiercely threatening and intriguing. Horror movies have always employed the theme of the occult and quite a number of these psychic and mystic movies fall under this category of horror since they normally utilize the dark part of human satanic and faith concepts. Essentially, movies about occult are usually established on stories portraying the bizarre rituals of an old time period and they are oftentimes mixed with the Christian Faith. In this article, we shall see the topmost occult movies ever.
The Ninth Gate.
This is one of the occult stories. The movie was not that much accepted among reviewers thought it was always compared to the Polanski’s initial horror masterwork, Rosemary’s Baby’ because of its thematic relations. The film is all about a book merchant who strives to get a book that has the key to commanding Satan but things change more complicated when he gets himself besieged by some paranormal developments. Even with his consistent searches of the occult, Polanski has asserted that he does not trust in the occult.
The House of the Devil.
The movie is about a college student given an absurdly high pay for a babysitting role in a strange, remote house where a set of strange occurrences started haunting her as she settles to fight for her own life, protecting herself from the ruthlessness of evil spirits. The movie has a lot of occult elements in the way it employs the film-making methods and techniques that were popular in the past.
The Starry Eyes
The Starry Eyes’ mostly focuses on an ambitious Hollywood actor who, in her search for fortune and fame, gets caught with a hidden satanic occult. The movie revolves around the physical and mental transformation as she testifies the merciless, unpleasant realities of the Hollywood enterprise and her unsuccessful attempts at saving herself from the harmful spirits of a business she decided to be in herself. Certainly, this is one of the greatest horror movies with occult elements.
A Dark Song.
Again, this is one of the original, extraordinary arts of horror acted in recent times. This movie talks of a middle-aged lady and an occultist who endanger their lives so that she can conduct rituals that would give them their lifetime dreams. The movie is unbelievably horrific and regards themes of love, faith, human struggle and goes absolutely beyond conventional genre of film making. Actually, it is emotionally cruel and deeply thought-provoking and its claustrophobic mood knowledgeably manages to portray the general mood of the film.
Eyes Wide Shut.
This Stanley Kubrick’s movie portrays a man’s unusual, nightmarish turn into the mysterious underbellies of a hidden society after his mate confesses to having sexual illusions regarding a man she once came across. As Bill gets to the mansion, he discovers that what he is actually observing is his own mind; pure, faithless, stark naked and filled with bizarre hallucinations. Kubrick carefully peels off the hidden layers beneath our enlightened being and it is this stunning image of a great vast truth that gets Eyes Wide Shut’ a real work of art.
The Wicker Man.
The Wicker Man focuses on a police Sergeant who visits an isolated place in the quest for a missing girl, however, upon getting there, he realizes that people have not heard of the girl and is confused by the weird rituals done in the island. The major focus of the movie lies in investigating serious Christianity issues and comparing it with the ideas of the old Celtic polytheism. Indeed the movies was not a tremendous breakthrough when it was published and for times, it remained in fuzziness before critics would go on to appreciate it as one of the preeminent horror films ever made.
The Evil Dead.
