The Temple of Lilith Short Film Serves as a Companion to Sulphur for Leviathan

Published

on

A new short film titled The Temple of Lilith has hit the Net; and along with being pretty darn creepy in its own right, it serves as a companion to the upcoming Sulphur for Leviathan, which is heading our way next year.  Just a word of warning: If you find nuns disturbing (Uncle Creepy, I’m talking to YOU!), you should probably steer clear of Sulphur

From the Press Release:
Following an exciting festival run for their first feature, Flesh of the Void, Sodom & Chimera has unveiled The Temple of Lilith, a new short for an unsuspecting public. The latest from experimental filmmaker James Quinn, 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.

Synopsis:
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 and become one with the lord of flies.

The Temple of Lilith is a companion piece to Sulphur for Leviathan, a 13-minute arthouse film that Sodom & Chimera will release in 2018.

Sulphur for Leviathan revolves around a nun who suddenly finds herself progressively fantasizing about things that shouldn’t be in her head, increasingly having to face her own doings of blasphemy, all leading up to something demonically dark and sinister. Portrayed in a surreal manner both in color and black and white, with a heavy focus on elegant cinematography, the film tells a satanic tale of unfulfilled desires, lust, blasphemy, and existential dread, packed in a controversial and disturbing, but calm and poetic experience that is heavily inspired by Andrei Tarkovsky with a touch of satanism.
