Supernatural Horror: Tradition in Hollywood

ExorcismThe mainstream media does its best to keep a finger on the pulse of the public consciousness while promoting its message of modernity and secularism. The majority of Hollywood is undeniably controlled by Jews and their decidedly anti-White and anti-Christian beliefs, if you don’t believe me then ask Los Angeles Times author Joel Stein who wrote “As a proud Jew, I want America to know about our accomplishment. Yes, we control Hollywood. ” With almost universal control of Hollywood and the mainstream media through having almost unlimited financial capital, almost all Hollywood productions that are churned out from Romantic Comedies to Action films promote an anti-Traditional message. The budgets of even the simplest film in Hollywood these days puts the financial requirements out of reach of all but the Hollywood elite with the exception of one: the horror movie genre.

Horror films have been a part of the movie making industry since the beginning. The classic monster movie films such as Frankenstein, The Wolfman, and Dracula all spoke to the inner fears of the American public. Frankenstein touched on the fear of science straying into forbidden; In the age of Monsanto and GMO foods these fears seems only to be confirmed with every passing day. Dracula spoke to a fear of non-Western cultures and the importance of the Christian faith in repelling those wishing to literally be parasites upon our people. The Wolfman spoke of the danger of formerly normal and God fearing men being turned by attackers from the inside out, a fear of International Bolshevism and the growing poisoning of our culture.

Throughout the ages horror movies have touched on the things that deep down in our soul cause us dread in the depths of the night, and that is a reason why the System cannot make them the propaganda films of other genres, if the movies do not align with our natural God given fears, people won’t respond to them.

One of the most enduring genres of the horror genre is that of the supernatural. Even in an age of almost total secularism in mainstream culture, millions of people every single year stream into films that have to do with the occult, demons, and supernatural entities. The minimal budget requirements of horror films provide an avenue where filmmakers can make a terrifying film that truly speaks to the American public. In the past several years, the majority of the most successful horror films have focused primarily on the role of Satanic influences into the corporeal realm. Just as the need for Exorcists in the Catholic and Orthodox Church is skyrocketing due to increasing amounts of Satanic activity in our world, the public consciousness of the spiritual enemy is on the rise.

The modern world teaches everyone that each individual can truly become his or her own god. Through selfishness, hedonism, money, and work, you can achieve all of your goals and overcome all of the evil patriarchal and Christian worldview that “held back” previous generations. Horror films take on the modern world’s view of sin and individualism head on. While movies like Scream and The Cabin in the Woods parody the so called “rules” of horror movies, it demonstrates how ingrained Traditional values are in the genre.

White men and women are primarily always those who work the best together, are willing to selflessly sacrifice themselves for their loved ones and friends, and almost always survive far longer than the non-White characters in the film. The old adage of “the black guy dies first” almost always ties back to the fact that strong White men who organize together and stand by Tradition are able to fare far better than non-White characters who almost always attempt to “go it alone” and thereby destroy the sense of stewardship that is a defining characteristic of European civilization.

Everyone knows the classic rules of slasher and horror films that anyone who engages in premarital sex, drug abuse, or blasphemy will soon be on the literal chopping block of the villain. In a bizarre form of divine punishment, almost never do you see virgins or the faithful facing the wrath of the villains, as Christians may be menaced by the forces of Satan and his legions of demons, through the protection of Saint Michael the Archangel and the eternal blessing of Christ, we are protected from facing the true death that nonbelievers face. As the saying goes “Born once, die twice. Born twice, die once.” In horror movies, those who stand by Tradition are almost always able to weather the storms of danger.

The role of the supernatural is a growing segment of the horror movie genre. One of the scariest elements of the demonic sub-genre of horror films is that you truly cannot fight the enemy with conventional means. You can bash a zombie in the head with a crowbar or even slow Jason Vorhees down with an explosion, but you cannot shoot a demon. The powers of this world cannot fight a demon, and that is what makes them so terrifying to the modern American audience.

Films like The Exorcist–or this year’s film, The Conjuring–all demonstrate that only through the Church and its adherents can we hope to oppose the forces of Satan. It is impossible for Hollywood to come up with ways to fight demons that do not tie directly back to the Sacraments of the Church as the most formidable weapon available to humans in a fight against incorporeal elements. The book of Ephesians tells us that “Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities,against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Prayer, the Rite of Exorcism, and Christian symbols are enshrined in the horror genre as being more powerful than even a nuclear weapon when it comes to defending ourselves against demons.

The role of the occult and witchcraft is also shown in many horror films as being a gateway to Hell and the forces of the Devil, a very true and very real fact in our modern culture. The Paranormal Activity series begins with the fact that a family of witches opens a demonic pact of giving a first born over to Satan. The nature of the elites being willing to sell their own children to Satan for power, money, and prestige in the worldly realm is a reality in our everyday lives and horror films bring this to the silver screen.

The alliance between the elites and Satan for worldly powers goes back to the temptation of Christ in the desert in the book of Matthew when “the devil took him [Christ] to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. ‘All this I will give you,’ he said, ‘if you will bow down and worship me.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’” The elites of our system have taken the Devil’s deal and are willing to sell out everyone they are supposed to be caring for, even their own children, for more power. Horror films understand that things like tarot cards, seance’s, and pacts with Satan are very real and very dangerous. The opening of this gateway is opening yourself up to possession, demonic oppression, and eternal death. Witchcraft is powerful and taps directly into the forces of darkness to trade your eternal soul for temporary powers in this life. The importance of horror movies is that they do not shy away from the intense spiritual ramifications of communing with the eternal enemy of God and humanity, and this is just one more way the genre asserts itself as being one of the last ways for Traditionalism to assert itself in mainstream society.

The expressions of self-sacrifice, Christian values being a way to be protected against darkness, and the strong belief in the Church to fight opponents of the spiritual realm are all elements that reinforce the horror genre as a force of Traditionalism. People should fear demons and the occult if they are not Christians, as they are left defenseless against an enemy that is infinetly powerful when compared to the limitations of the human body. People continue to attend movies like this because in an age of growing secularism, the nagging Truth of the Church tells them that there is something to this unpopular perspective. One cannot be a Christian in this society or believe in Traditional values without being denounced by the mainstream media, yet still the undying Truth of the Gospel and the values of our folk still beat in the hearts of every single man and woman. One day “every knee shall bow” to the Truth of Tradition and of Christ, but for now we can find solace in our culture in the last remaining branch of Traditionalism. See y’all at the movies

The best horror films are reminiscent of European fairy tales, stories of good and evil told with ancient folkish imagery. I have always thought the Hammer films of Terence Fisher to be some of the best examples of this.
