You’ll loose your mind…and your soul

Since it’s October and Halloween is on it’s way…

Younger people are probably most familiar with the British actor Christopher Lee from his roles in Star Wars and the Lord of the Rings films. However earlier in his career Lee was involved with a number of Hammer Films horror movies. Most notably playing Dracula in the 1958 film Horror of Dracula. Being tall and of somewhat dark and distinguished appearance (his mother was an Italian countess) he was perfect for the role. Because of his association with the horror genera  the rumor sprang up that he was involved with the occult. I haven’t been able to find out much concretely but it seems that in actuality he was a believing, if not pious, Catholic or Anglo-Catholic. I came across this clip of him addressing the rumors of his “extensive occult library” and giving a stern warning.
