Crowley - 2008
Iron Maiden front-man Bruce Dickinson collaborates with veteran second-unit Monty Python director Julian Doyle to craft this horror-flavored supernatural thriller concerning the reincarnation of the occultist once dubbed "the most evil man in Britain." Over sixty years after Aleister Crowley's death, the mere mention of his name is still enough to strike terror in the hearts of God-fearing Christians. When a virtual reality experiment gone awry sends Crowley's restless soul into the body of a soft-spoken university professor (Simon Callow), the newly empowered hedonist draws on his powerful "black magick" in order to unleash an occult event the likes of which this world has never witnessed. John Shrapnel and Richard Franklin co-star.
