The Brotherhood of Satan, 1971
Directed by Bernard McEveety
(which also happens to be a really cool sounding name)
Starring: old people who worship satan and a nice family in a station wagon
I'm kind of tired right now. I wish I got a coffee at lunch, but I didn't. Oh well. This Brotherhood of Satan movie we have here is astonishingly amazing though. There's all these great shots where there is very little music or action happening and just ridiculously superb camera angles and lens and shots and things. You know, ambience, like say it in a french like accent. ambience. yeah that's real nice. The bad guys and gals totally win in the end too. So go to hell you stupid do-gooders. HAIL SATANUS!

Simon: King of the Witches - 1971
Directed by Bruce Kessler
Simon calls himself a magician, but you may call him a warlock, male-witch or wizard if you like. He practices the arts of white magic, and his work comes with a fee... sometimes more than just money. This is really one of the best 70s witch movies out there, let me tell you. He has lots of great tapestries and blankets and what not when he gets his basement apartment. He does a great job with the atmosphere in there so that holding ceremonies and what not can be taken more seriously by the spirits, gods, energies and inter-dimensional beings. One of the best things about this film is that the ending is kind of creepy and ambiguous, not all wrapped up pretty with a bow on top. I need to start carrying a magic dagger in my spellpouch I think, it really seemed to come in handy for Simon.
Goodbye Gemini - 1970
Directed by Alan Gibson
Starring Jacki and Julian
the weird ass twins
This movie ruled pretty hard. Totally killer soundtrack that opens with a heavy psych jam over footage of the twins riding the bus. Pretty rad. I like those long intros with a good tune playing, let's you get into the mood and find a good spot to put down the remote and grab your beer. You know, get comfy without missing anything. I should say that if you are a homophobic who really likes all the 3d remakes happening right now then go click around on some other page. This is for open minded types who know what "character development" means. I love movies like this man, a whole lot of vibe and very little plot. Great sideburns, great outfits, great cars, swinging London greatness, color bursting out at you everywhere, bear skin blankets, fuzzed out guitars, whiskey, weed, what else do you need?
