Lucifer Rising is a short film by director Kenneth Anger. Although virtually completed in 1972, the film was only widely distributed in 1980, after Bobby Beausoleil delivered the finished soundtrack master.

A psychedelic trip into the occult, this was the first really notorious film about black magic and the occult. The Express’s Lord Beaverbrook sold a lot of papers calling Crowley a satanist, with headlines like “The man we want to hang”, to provoke people to demonise him. Crowley was cast as an evil genius bogeyman created ostensibly by the establishment press. But in truth he was a sick sadist tuned to the secret societies and their practices. The closer you look, you see the fingerprints of The Cabal.

Egyptian gods summons the angel Lucifer – in order to usher in a new occult age. Filmed at several `magic’ spots, the film depicts a series of ceremonies, movements, and rituals mixed with experimental film editing.

The score for the movie was composed by the incarcerated killer Bobby Beausoleil, one of the infamous Charles Manson family killers. He was in jail when he made the score. Stars Marianne Faithfull.
