To those of you who like a big dose of weird with their horror, you might want to think about arthouse films. They’re not always comprehensible, but they are usually cheap. Experimental filmmaker James Quinn and his production company Sodom & Chimera brought us Flesh of the Void in 2016, and now they’ve debuted their followup The Temple of Lilith.
After the last witch of the south became ashes, never to be remembered, the mother of darkness, Lilith, rises from the ground to harvest the fruits of deadly sin, and set an end to the holocaust of the saints, the religious pandemic that tried to enslave and ultimately annihilate her kind. Planting the seeds of the goat into her skull, she goes her way, on a quest of darkness, to open the gates of hell, become one with the lord of flies.
Or something like that. The Temple of Lilith is streamable now by going here, no entry fee required. And if you enjoy it, more is soon to come: a companion piece called Sulfur For Leviathan will be released sometime next year.
The Temple of Lilith stars Hex Suicide from the Suicide Girls, and was shot on 16mm film. The score was created by Stephan Ortlepp’s musical collective Musica Non Grata, who previously composed the score for Flesh of the Void. The Temple of Lilith also features music by the Canadian Doom Metal band Dopethrone.
