This movie was made in 1996, and is what i consider the debut of Wiccan beliefs and occult practices to main stream minds all over the world, from the real practitioners of magick in Hollywood. The first thing that I would like to point out is that this movie was released in 1996, throughout the whole movie they explain the power of 3, or the three folds law, as it is known by some people. Here is a quote taken directly from the movie, "By all the Power of Three times Three- as we Will, so shall it Be!" This I believe is exactly the meaning for the timing that this movie came out, 1996. (3 x 3 = 9, 3 x 2 = 6, 3 sixes = 666). In the opening of the movie you see 3 young girls doing a ritual, and they are chanting, "Now is the time, Now is the Hour, Now is the time, Now is our power..."
You see 3 antique bottles, I guarantee that one is filled with oil, and the others filled with wine, or maybe blood. I am not saying that the Freemasons are evil with my next statement, but I want you to play close attention. The Freemasons have a ritual when performing a certain ceremony which involves, wine, corn, and oil. All of these exist in this image, except this is a blasphemy on that idea...Why? Where is the corn? Good question, and I believe the answer is that Corn to the Freemasons, is supposed to represent a plentiful harvest of what the people need for survival. What takes the place of the corn harvest in this picture? The big ass bag of weed that is laid just under the pentacle or five pointed star, but you can't really see it in the screen shot too well. Watch the movie I assure you those are very hydroponic buds of Marijuana. That is the plentiful harvest that the producers want feeble minded teenagers to indulge upon. The reason why this screenshot isn't focused upon the marijuana is because I also wanted to point out the production company...A Douglas Wick production....Did anyone ever hear of this production company making any other movie of any sort? I know I haven't, but lets continue...
Throughout the movie they show a number of Catholic, or Christian symbolism, such as the Virgin Mary, and Jesus on the Cross. However, none of the so called witches ever look at it. No one in the circle ever acknowledges the Virgin Mary, or Jesus. Every time they are depicted in the film they seem to be turning there backs on them, or in some cases not noticing them at all.
These girls attend a catholic school, and the evil witch Nancy, as she is called in the film, is the evil Gothic Catholic school girl that has a lot to rebel against. She lives in a trailer with her drunk parents, and her step father, that sexually abuses her. How did she come to attend a Catholic school anyways? Her family seems very poor, and I know from experience, because I have attended a Catholic school, that they can be very expensive. They don't stay poor throughout the whole movie however, because Nancy ends up killing her step father in a rage of Magick. This brings them some type of life insurance policy that gives them 175,000 dollars. She and her mother are so excited about the money, that they quickly forget about the no good step father's death, and that Nancy had killed him in her fit of rage.
Throughout the movie the girls visit a very occult like book store, the All Seeing Eye symbol which is on the back of all of our one dollar bills in the USA, is everywhere. It can be found on the outside as well as inside of the bookstore. Later in the movie, they say that the store was built on a very old spiritual worship site. There is more to this painting on this wall however, the black Egyptian, that is worshiping the Pyramid without a capstone, has a head dress, that has an all seeing eye in the middle. There is also a window with the all seeing eye depicted as a sun, or the Eye of Horus, and it has bars over it. Could the sun in the background with 3 circles be another symbol for the 3 folds law, or maybe the holy trinity? Whatever it is none of the girls seem to notice. Please let me know in the comments what you think.
When the main character enters the book store for the first time, she notices this room in the back of the store. She is somehow drawn to it, and before she is able to open the curtain, the owner stops her, and tells her, "This room is not for you." This is very strange, and they don't show you whats behind this curtain until the near end of the film. This movie also represents the constant battle between the good and evil forces of our world, or the duality of nature. The ying and yang, positive and negative polarities, etc.
Here is a ritual depicted in the movie The Craft, where they do a blood ritual sharing each others blood, and drinking of "there sisters" in the circle. Before beginning the ceremony Nancy clearly states, "As above, so Below." Throughout our history ancient magicians, and Jewish mystic knowledge, revolves around this statement, and its origins are from the Emerald Tablet, or the Secret of Hermes. The wine that they used is named "Ariel" which has a number of meanings. It could mean blasphemy against the holy city of Jerusalem, or an angel in Judaism or occult lore. If you don't believe me look up Ariel on Wikipedia. There are too many listings to name here. If you Google Ariel wine, you will find a non alcoholic red wine, that has the name Ariel. Why did they use this wine? And why is that reference not listed in Wikipedia? Surely it could be because they are underage, however throughout the movie, you see them drinking alcoholic beverages, so this kind of contradicts itself. I think in this screenshot everything has a meaning, as with the whole ritual performed in this scene. You also see a Tarot card on the table, that is "The Magician".
This screenshot is taken right after the witches call the corners, North, South, East, and West. Now her necklace that she is wearing is jumbled with a lot of symbols that have no meaning, but one of those symbols is one of the oldest symbols that we know about, which is the Egyptian Ankh. This used to mean the Key of Life, or the Key of the Nile. That is supposedly the very origins of the Human race. Egyptologists to this day do not know the origins of this symbol, and its considered to be a very magic, and powerful symbol in all its rights. It represents the male triad, and the female unit, under a decent form. It also symbolizes the direction in which the Nile flows, and both sides, in which they are unified to represent all of Egypt. Like I said there is still much debate to what this symbol actually means. I'm sure there are many people in different secret societies however, that know exactly what this Magick symbol is in reference too, and this is the only time you see it in the movie...
This is the evil witch Nancy, that asks to take in all the powers of Menol, which is a made up deity, for the purpose of making a movie, in which the deity has no real meaning, except to go against Christian, or Catholic religion. Notice how she is walking on water like Jesus? This was not put here by mistake I assure you. Everything in this movie has a meaning if you look hard enough. Can anybody say Anti-Christ?
This is a book that is very evil by all means, the symbolism on the cover is very strange, it even depicts the P X symbol of the Vatican's St. Peter's Square at the top, or the grand sundial that is St. Peters Square. This is created by the obelisk in the center, and the shadow of the obelisk represents the equinoxes of the sun, and/or the changing of the seasons. This book is very evil, as it expands on that pagan sun worship. This is very scary how this symbol seems to tie all paganistic religions together in your mind. They only show this book for a split second, but I was able to catch a screen shot for you. Remember guys, I don't know everything, and I know I may have made some mistakes with some of my interpretations, but please feel free to correct me in the comments below...
This is what is behind the all seeing eye curtain in the bookstore. I don't have to explain the evil that exists in this screenshot right? It is kind of in your face...Anyways, That is it for now, I hope you see what I have been trying to explain about Hollywood, and there subliminal signs, and numerology with movie releases and stuff. I hope you have enjoyed this article, and thanks for reading, and don't forget to comment.
