Who wouldn't? A wet dream of anti-occultists.

... a broken-down old house that is now a Mecca for thelemite zealots.

Oh, goodnes. No, sadness. Just think what a cool place that dump would be if only someone had intervened and bought it when it was intact.  But there's thing about hot temples ...

@shiva It is too bad that Kenneth Anger who went to so such trouble to document the murals, couldn't (or didn't) try to raise the funds to buy the property when it was still in okay shape.

The Dark Song.

That is a good one!   I mentioned it here a while ago in connection with Abramelin.

The Occult Roots of Nazism by Nicholas Goodrick-Clark

Definitely one of the better books on the topic.  Ravenscroft's book makes for good myth but not good reality.

 

But Michael Moynihan's The Secret King goes further and offers translations of Wiligut's own writings.

  Never heard of Peter Moon until now

He and Preston Nichols wrote a series of books on the Montauk Project, that also tie in Amado Crowley

The man who did actual graphics of the "Talisman" was none other than Hans Heinz Ewers,

Interesting!  I know of Ewers but did not know that he was involved in the making of Nosferatu!

And yes you mixed up some details of his life with Otto Rahn's

@katrice Are you familiar with Dennis Wheatly's They Used Dark Forces: A Black Mgic Story.  A tour de force of a W.W. 2 spy novel, the occult, and science Fiction.  Now that's a basis for a movie.

I am!  I have wondered why Hammer never made a movie of that one.  I enjoyed their other ones, especially The Devil Rides Out, which was discussed here a while ago. Wheatley got a lot of his information from trickster magician Rollo Ahmed, whose book The Black Art is an entertaining read, if a little Montague Summers-ish.

AH!  Rollo Ahmed raises his head again!  I may have mentioned in earlier posts that his book, The Black Arts was the very first book on the occult I ever read, and it opened the flood gates of interest in all things Magical.  Also, you mentioned Montague Summers.  I think I owned almost every book he wrote. (Many hardbound and First Editions) The Geography of Witchcraft, The Vampire, His Kilth and Kin, The History of Witchcraft, the Werewolf, and of course, his translation of the Malleus Maleficarum.  I loved the way he quoted huge passages in Latin, giving his work a sense of arcane and forbidden scholarship.  Also, he is just plain entertaining. I agree, it would be great if Hammer Studios, or some enterprising independent film makers would do more Dennis Wheatley inspired movies.  Sadly, movies today are mindless, PC, Corporate think crapola.

I do find Ahmed interesting, and entertaining too.  He was a lot more influential than he's given credit for. Summers is extremely interesting and entertaining too.

I would like to see more Wheatley adaptations. There are a few interesting "Black Magic" type movies out there, as mentioned earlier in this thread, but primary coming out of indie studios.
