How does one become an ex-vampire exactly? That and more will be revealed in the film that had plans to shake the nation: Interview with an Ex Vampire. The ex-vampire in question here is Bill Schnoebelen, –and when you type his name into Google, it tries to finish it for you by adding the word “fraud”. Schnoebelen claims to have gone inside the secretive, “darkest of the darkest” parts of the occult subcultures, and somehow clawed his way out, then wrote several books on the subjects of Wicca, Mormonism, etc., and well… he doesn’t have a lot of nice things to say.
In the DVD, according to its website, there’s a ton of information that he managed to procure:
“Forbidden Knowledge, Occult Rituals, Secret Priesthoods, Spells, Luciferian Initiation, Illuminism, Ceremonial Magick, Vampirism.
- The other-worldly initiation by a being of immense power that claimed him for its own.
- The reality of vampires and werewolves and the positions they hold in the dark world of the occult.
- The secret priesthood that helped him survive.
- The lust and hunger of the true vampire and how it destroys its victims.
- And much, more more!
This is a true story. Produced and directed by Michael Relfe, interview by Stephanie Relfe B.Sc.”
Well. I don’t know about you guys, but I am definitely suspicious about my being affected by black magick. I may have to investigate further, by watching all nine hours of the interview, and then reporting back to you with my findings. I’ll include in my two part feature; actual Q&A dialog quoted by Schnoebel and Relfe (trust me, this sounds too good to misquote), analysis on whether or not this guy is completely full of shit, and to top it all off: I’m doing it for FREE! That’s right guys, I’m working round the clock, for nine hours, to fill my brain full of evangelical evidence about vampires, Mormons, witches, Satanists, Catholics, Freemasons, and the Illuminati, –just for you, dear readers. And then you can decide whether or not Bill is bull, or speaking the gospel.
On a personal note, some of you may be aware that I do in fact have family ties to the Mormon religion, –no I am not one, –but I do want to know what this guy has to say about them. Not because I plan to denounce my family members, so much as I think it’d be fun to call them up and ask if they really chant around a fire in robes and monogrammed underwear.
So hang tight! On Wednesday, prepare yourself for Part 1 of Interview with an Ex Vampire! And tomorrow, I’ll be reviewing the ‘Americanized’ ‘Let Me In’, –which is just a fun way to say “the American remake of Let the Right One In”. Have other people done this? Probably. Are any of them as brutally honest, or as cool as I am? Not a chance in hell.
