A short documentary on the most wickedest man, Aleister Crowley (1875-1947), in the world and his time at Boleskine House, at the turn of the last century. Crowley purchased the estate on the shores of the south-east shore of Loch Ness in order to carry out rituals from The Book of the Sacred Magick of Abramelin the Mage, as he required: ...a house where proper precautions against disturbance can be taken; this being arranged, there is really nothing to do but to aspire with increasing fervor and concentration, for six months, towards the obtaining of the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel. Crowley described Boleskine in Confessions: The house is a long low building. I set apart the south-western half for my work. The largest room has a bow window and here I made my door and constructed the terrace and lodge. Inside the room I set up my oratory proper. This was a wooden structure, lined in part with the big mirrors which I brought from London.
