Night Of The Demon: The Last Resort Of Aleister Crowley

/ / 1957 / Night Of The Demon: The Last Resort Of Aleister Crowley /
The wonderful Electric Palace Cinema plays host to an evening of applied Crowleyanity, featuring a screening of Jacques Tourneur's “Night Of The Demon”, a preview of the forthcoming book “Netherwood: The Last Resort Of Aleister Crowley” and a live performance by the creative occult organisation, English Heretic. Jacques Tourneur's adaptation of M R James' “Casting Of The Runes” famously characterises Aleister Crowley in the guise of Julian Karswell – a top hatted, mansion house dwelling Mummy's boy whipping up demonic winds from runic spells. In addition to the film showing, this evening will showcase a performance by English Heretic of two pieces magical electronics inspired by Crowley and Kenneth Grant: “Open The Mithraic Stargate” and “The Dagger Of Bou Said”. Setting the scene for the evening Antony Clayton will be taking us on an annotated guide to the remarkable guesthouse “Netherwood” where Crowley spent his final years. Antony is soon to be publishing a unique memoir of “Netherwood”.
