The entire Candyman franchise is the creation of Clive Barker, who in 1985 wrote a short story entitled The Forbidden. The first Candyman movie, which is based on The Forbidden, came out in 1992. Barker had a morbid fascination with black magic and magicians, most particularly Aleister Crowley. In fact, he dabbled with the occult himself. Barker admits:

“Yeats then led me to the Golden Dawn, and from the Golden Dawn to Aleister Crowley—and to a whole metaphysical system based on magic. Which I took terribly, terribly seriously. I was trying these experiments, putting things under my pillow in the belief they would influence my dreams in certain directions.

“For a couple years there, Mom was saying, What are these things I keep finding under your pillow? Magic, and the idea of magic—that the will works upon the world in some way to change it—is really interesting, isn’t it? Because it’s what we’re hoping to do with our words.”[1]

Crowley, commonly known as “the wickedest man on earth,” was a black magician, Kabbalist, and a freemason. During a specific ritual, Crowley actually crucified a frog as a form of blasphemy. Lawrence Sutin of Hamline University declared that Crowley chose a specific day because it was consistent with Kabbalistic magic.


Crowley, like Friedrich Nietzsche before him, saw the arts as a weapon that would play an influential role in the sexual revolution.[2] In fact, the dagger that was used to crucify the frog was called “dagger of art.” Crowley said,

“That religion they call Christianity; the devil they honor they call God. I accept these definitions, as a poet must do, if he is to be at all intelligible to his age, and it is their God and their religion that I hate and will destroy.”[3]

In the end, Crowley died perplexed and in despair in 1947.[4] Like Friedrich Nietzsche, Crowley did not live to see the sexual revolution, although he longed to see its fruition during his day.[5]

Yet Crowley’s Masonic/Kabbalistic doctrine—do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law—never lost its potency. It has been echoed and manifested time and again through many different branches and offshoots.

Clive Barker

The Beatles put Crowley’s picture on the cover album of Stg. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. John Lennon declared, “The whole idea was to do what you want. Do what thou wilst, as long as it doesn’t hurt somebody.”[6]

When asked why the Beatles placed people like Crowley and others on the cover of their album, Paul McCartney said that those people were “our heroes,” and Ringo Starr responded, “[People] we like and admire.”[7]

Crowley’s work also influenced Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, Jim Morrison of The Doors, Ozzy Osbourne (remember the song “Mr. Crowley”?), David Bowie (Quicksand), Alan Moore, Alfred Kinsey,[8] and more recently Clive Barker.

In an interview, Barker, who was sued by his former boyfriend because Barker “gave me HIV,”[9] describes how he views magic:

Interviewer: “Because of the kind of work you do you must meet people who believe you’re an adept with access to secret knowledge and places. How do you deal with them and, in fact, more to the point, are you an adept?”

Clive Barker: “The first assumption is that I’m not. Magic is a very serious subject for me but I wouldn’t be playing fair with what I know to pass any of that along. Being, by its very nature, outside language, some of this stuff has to remain unsaid and unspoken. It’s a very serious study for me.”[10]

William Butler Yeats was a devoted occultist and magician, and that the Golden Dawn was a magical order practicing occult rituals and even sex magic. Although Yeats won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1923, he was also known as a black magician. Thus, Barker got his inspiration from these two individuals and is now translating their doctrines into books and movies.

Barker, who was accused of “having a sexual relationship with his own cousin, who had AIDS, as well as engaging in sadomasochism in prior relationships where syringes were involved,”[11] is the director or producer of movies like Hell Raiser, Night Breed, Lord of Illusions, Gods and Monsters, Candyman, and others. Here’s how Barker says he is going to kill people:

“Because I make horror movies I have to offend people. That’s my responsibility, to kill as many people as possible…And some of that truth may not be palatable to anybody. My responsibility is not to give a [expletive] about that. My responsibility is not to care.”[12]


Even Barker’s novel The Damnation Game is about making a Faustian pact with the devil in return for power, fame, and wealth. At the beginning of the book, Barker quotes Yeats from The Hour Glass: “Hell is a place of those who have denied; they find there what they planted and what [they] dug, a Lake of Spaces, and a Wood of Nothing, and wander there and drift, and never cease wailing for substance.”[13]

In short, Candyman was born out of Aleister Crowley’s Luceferian ideology, one which still has a massive effect on pop culture. Moreover, Candyman, particularly the new film which just came out a few days ago, is an essentially implicit resurrection of the black/Jewish alliance.

The first producer who directed the 1992 Candyman was none other than Bernard Rose. The producers of the recent movie are Jordan Peele and Win Rosenfeld. “In October 2017, Rosenfeld was hired as the president and CEO of Jordan Peele’s company Monkeypaw Productions.” Rosenfeld also produced the 2018 tasteless movie, BlacKkKlansman, which is clearly a misrepresentation of David Duke.

In short, when you watch Candyman, you are essentially watching the work of Aleister Crowley and the people who were largely behind the Black/Jewish alliance.

  1. “Abus non tollit usum.” The abuse of something good does not negate its legitimate use. The Catholic Church was heavily infiltrated especially from the 1920s (but even long before), in fact by Stalin’s orders to all communist parties around the world to recruit young men to enter seminaries, etc as foot soldiers to destroy it, by communists, homosexuals and other sexual libertines, including crypto Jews and Freemasons, and its visible structures were gradually taken over culminating in the takeover of the papacy at the 1958 papal conclave (see “Grave Reasons of State” online). Christianity is the one true religion, but authentic Christianity is hard to find. Francis in Rome is an asset of the Luciferian Globalists, as were his predecessors going back to the obese Freemason John XXIII. Also, Jesus was not an “enlightened master” and He never said to “look within for the answer.” Try reading one of the Gospels instead of what people write about them and ask yourself if anyone could have just made it all up.

  2. Perhaps there is his heir in the world? Unfortunately, he has not revealed himself yet. If Horus does come, we’ll need a guide. Perhaps such a person is secretly waiting to reveal himself when his time comes? The game is just about to start!

  3. Fuck Crawley fuck the fucking Beatles fuck them all if they can’t take a fucking joke
    Fuck the fucking frog that got crucified fuck Clive fucking Barker and his stupid fucking movies. Why do people watch his shit anyways

  4. In the complete examination of spirituality of humans in the overall spiritual economy of the planet and all her species, there simply is no more morbid and obsessed segment of any species with the sexual perversions than the Catholic church.
    They do it. They talk about it. They want to discuss it. They execute the preplanned activity involving it. They get caught at it. They get caught at covering it up. And yet they still endlessly are obsessed with talking about it and prolonging the debate about their part in it.
    It is bizarre. it is abnormal. It is entirely suspicious. And it is plainly consistent and obvious. This is not a segment of humanity where we go for spiritual advice or guidance. Not even close.

    • You are so on to something there. One of the oddest things is that the most esteemed hiararchy of the faith are repressed/supressed sexual men, Pope, Bishops, Achbishops, Cardinals, priests and monks. For the women there are the Nuns tho other than as teachers I can not say they are actually esteemed individuals in the faith.

    • “Paul Tillich wrote that all institutions, including the church, are inherently demonic. Reinhold Niebuhr asserted that no institution could ever achieve the morality of the individual. Institutions, he warned, to extend their lives when confronted with collapse, will swiftly betray the stances that ostensibly define them.” – Chris Hedges

    • Mr.Odell
      Are you saying that mistakes of followers of Jesus (Blessings of God be Upon Him) means that Jesus himself was wrong? Because darkness exists that means sun is not bright and shining? (though philosophically darkness does not exist and it is lack of light. I think)
      Just because a religious person makes a mistake does not mean religion is wrong. There was no one more religious than Satan…
      Yet when a religious person becomes a bad person, chances are he will become extremely evil. Because he wants to pay back for all the times he abstained (This is one of the reasons born-Muslims who openly become disbelievers will have death penalty by Islamic law). It is as if he wants to get revenge.
      This is the case for some of Religious Catholics, because they prevented themselves (wrongly) of marriage, they somehow fall even deeper in trap of sexual pleasure. Yet to the contrary, marriage will move you closer to God for many reasons. God does not create a desire and then ask you to ignore it. So not marrying is man-made.
      So please do not burn the entire forest for sins of few.
