Pagan Eye: Lilith Dorsey Introducing The Bloodettes

I went along to Treadwell’s for a screening of The Bloodettes in a series of horror movie nights. The Bloodettes is a stylish although low-budget African film set in the near future in which two women use the power of the Mevungu to defeat the patriarchy. At the shop it was introduced by Voodoo Priestess Lilith Dorsey M.A. digitally from New Orleans, and the photo above shows her talking about Mevungu and magic in the movie. It was really fascinating. I learnt something about Camaroon mysticism and I recommend the movie too if you like somewhat unusual horror films. I should warn you it's a bit gory in places, particularly the scene with the testicle... 

If you're interested, you can watch a trailer here (although in the trailer it's called The Bleeders, symbolising menstrual moon power I think):

Treadwell's also stocks a range of books on African  mysticism, magic and religion, including titles by Lilith Dorsey. The shop is at 33 Store St, London WC1E 7BS. You can find the website here:
