The Gatekeepers are great aficionados of Satanic films. We believe that Lord Satan often reveals His will in this medium, via inspired writers, directors, actors and artists, so we pay close attention to their work. The following are some of the films we believe are Satanically inspired; watch and study them carefully for ideas for you own Satanic practices in your Black Houses, Lodges and Covens.
Rosemary’s Baby (1968)
Rosemary’s Baby is a masterpiece of Satanic film-making by a great master of the genre, Roman Polanski. The Marcato Coven is an outstanding example of a Progenitor Coven—ruthless and fanatical in their desire to breed a Devil-Child, yet skilled and intelligent—which all Satanic Templars would do well to study and emulate. “God is dead, Satan lives!”
The Devil Rides Out (1968)
The film version of Dennis Wheatley’s classic novel, produced by legendary horror studio Hammer Films and starring the brilliantly diabolical Charles Grey as Mocato, and Christopher Lee as his equally formidable adversary Duke de Richleau. An important film from the “Satanic awakening” of the late 1960s that brought Wheatley’s vision to the big screen for the first time.
Taste the Blood of Dracula (1970)
This classic from Hammer Horror is worthwile mainly for two things: the character of Lord Courtley, the aristocratic Black Magician who lures some jaded gentlemen into a more diabolical variety of thrills; and its beautiful depiction of a Satanic chapel in an abandoned church, where a black rite is held to revive Count Dracula using his sacred blood. The Hammer films Lust for a Vampire and Satanic Rites of Dracula also contain some impressive Satanic temples and rituals.
The Omen I/II/III (1976/1978/1981)
The Omen is one of the Gatekeeper’s all-time favorites; a masterpiece of Apocalyptic Satanic horror about the arrival of the Antichrist and the beginning of his rise to power. The cult of the Antichrist’s disciples, which includes the likes of the dedicated nanny Mrs. Baylock and the ferocious Rottweiler guard dogs, are an exceptional role model for Satanic Templars. The two sequels are also worth watching; they gives us further glimpses of the machinations of the Antichrist and his Disciples that could turn out to be useful, if not prophetic.
Satan’s Slave (1976)
This little-known film about a young women’s entanglement with an ancient Satanic coven at an English country estate deserves to be more widely watched and studied. The Camilla Yorke Coven is one of the most intriguing and sinister cinematic Satanic cults we’ve seen, and the two Black Magicians Alexander and Stephen Yorke are deliciously wicked and devoted to their work.
Prime Evil (1988)
Prime Evil contains one of the most powerful depictions of a Satanic cult ever captured on film. Father Seaton is a true Satanic Templar, waging a holy war to win souls for Lord Satan. The acting and script may be B-movie quality, but this doesn’t detract from the powerful performance of William Beckwith as Seaton, the impressive cult rituals or the appealing idea of an ancient sect of Devil-worshippers who perform their black rites right under the noses of the Church. To quote Father Seaton:
“We have pledged ourselves to the only real god, the only true force: our Lord God Satan…I have given you fair warning—join us now, or die!”
The Devil’s Daughter (1991)
This rather bizarre Italian film contains an intriguing and very sinister Satanic cult called “the Faceless Ones”, who have a worldwide network of fanatical disciples, a most disturbing initiation ritual and a metaphysical agenda that includes the breeding of a Devil-Child. As a reporter says:
“They spread their terror throughout the world, from New York to London, from Turin to Lyon to Prague. They seek power, wealth and immortality by worshipping the Devil.”
Yes! Yes! Yes!
The Ninth Gate (1999)
The Ninth Gate is another brilliant film by Roman Polanski, about a book of Black Magic called The Nine Gates of the Kingdom of Shadows. Boris Balkan is one of the great cinematic Diabolists; his quest for the books that will unlock the Ninth Gate, summon the Devil and bring him god-like power, is a powerful inspiration for our own Nine Gates initiatory path. Balkan also gives a beautiful rebuke to a cult of pseudo-Satanists that is worth noting:
“Mumbo Jumbo! Mumbo Jumbo! … Look around you, all of you, what do you see? A bunch of buffoons in fancy dress. You think the prince of Darkness would actually deign to manifest himself before the likes of you? He never has and he never will. Never!”
