After receiving its world Premiere at SciFi London, the Crowley inspired horror "Chemical Wedding' will hit the big screens in the UK on the 30th of this month. The movie is a sci-fi/horror hybrid starring Simon Callow and members of the Monty Python Team and for added celeb value was written by Iron Maiden crooner Bruce Dickinson. The plot revolves aroung the virtual reality reincarnation of notorious British occultist Aleister Crowley (Callow). Reviews of the movie in the weekend tabloids were largely favourable and despite this being a low budget offering it seems certain to maintain the air of controversy that dogged Crowley with sexual scenes, blasphemous speeches and scenes of blood letting and defecation.
For those interested the Showbiz feed on Sky News is showing a preview of the movie and I have added the trailer here as I know there are a few on the boards who have an interest in the colourful life of the man once dubbed 'the wickest man alive'.
