The Temple Of Lilith

article by Rachael Rumancek

After​ ​a​ ​successful​ ​run​ ​throughout​ ​the​ ​festival​ ​circuit​ ​with​ ​multi​ ​award​ ​winning​ ​film​ T​​he​ ​Flesh​ ​of the​ ​Void​,​ ​writer,​ ​director​ ​and​ ​cinematic​ ​mad-man​ ​James​ ​Quinn​ ​of​ ​Sodom​ ​and​ ​Chimera productions​ ​is​ ​back​ ​with​ ​his​ ​latest​ ​daunting​ ​psychosomatic​ ​adventure​ ​with​ ​short​ ​film,​ T​​he Temple​ ​of​ ​Lilith.

From​ ​the​ ​press​ ​release:

“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,​ ​become​ ​one​ ​with​ ​the​ ​lord​ ​of​ ​flies.”

I​ ​like​ ​to​ ​think​ ​of​ ​the​ ​​Temple​ ​of​ ​Lilith​​ ​as​ ​not​ ​only​ ​an​ ​echo​ ​of​ ​Quinn’s​ ​short​ ​film​ ​​Sulfur​ ​for Leviathan​,​ ​but​ ​the​ ​film’s​ ​wicked​ ​little​ ​sister​ ​whose​ ​metaphysical​ ​calling​ ​is​ ​to​ ​seduce,​ ​corrupt​ ​and lay​ ​waste​ ​to​ ​those​ ​of​ ​Faith.​ ​There​ ​is​ ​nothing​ ​joyous​ ​about​ ​this​ ​film​ ​however​ ​it​ ​is​ ​guaranteed​ ​to evoke​ ​a​ ​variety​ ​of​ ​feelings.​ ​For​ ​some,​ ​​The​ ​Temple​ ​of​ ​Lilith​ ​​is​ ​a​ ​blasphemous​ ​work​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Devil, for​ ​others​ ​it’s​ ​a​ ​glimpse​ ​into​ ​madness​ ​and​ ​morbidity​ ​but​ ​for​ ​some​ ​of​ ​us,​ ​well,​ ​for​ ​some​ ​of​ ​us​ ​this film​ ​is​ ​quite​ ​more​ ​erotic​ ​and​ ​enrapturing​ ​than​ ​most​ ​could​ ​ever​ ​fathom.

In​ ​my​ ​recent​ ​interview​ ​with​​ ​The​ ​Temple​ ​of​ ​Lilith​​ ​mastermind,​ ​James​ ​Quinn,​ ​he​ ​went​ ​on​ ​to​ ​reflect on​ ​his​ ​work​ ​and​ ​the​ ​particular​ ​vibes​ ​and​ ​feelings​ ​he​ ​intends​ ​to​ ​create​ ​within​ ​his​ ​film’s​ ​viewers:

“Darkness.​ ​Pure​ ​darkness,​ ​of​ ​any​ ​kind…I​ ​went​ ​through​ ​some​ ​rather​ ​unpleasant​ ​years,​ ​and​ ​all​ ​of what​ ​I​ ​do​ ​is​ ​driven​ ​by​ ​the​ ​desire​ ​to​ ​manifest​ ​my​ ​darkness​ ​visually.​ ​I’m​ ​at​ ​a​ ​point​ ​now​ ​where​ ​it’s changing​ ​a​ ​bit,​ ​I​ ​feel​ ​better​ ​than​ ​ever​ ​at​ ​the​ ​moment,​ ​so​ ​some​ ​of​ ​my​ ​stuff​ ​is​ ​becoming​ ​a​ ​bit​ ​more confident​ ​and​ ​less​ ​desperate​ ​and​ ​depressing,​ ​but​ ​in​ ​its​ ​core,​ ​I​ ​just​ ​really​ ​want​ ​to​ ​create darkness​ ​on​ ​screen.​ ​Personal​ ​one​ ​though,​ ​that​ ​has​ ​to​ ​be​ ​said.​ ​I​ ​have​ ​no​ ​desire​ ​at​ ​all​ ​to​ ​portray society’s​ ​wrongdoings,​ ​this​ ​“mirror​ ​to​ ​society”​ ​people​ ​so​ ​often​ ​talk​ ​about,​ ​I’m​ ​really​ ​not​ ​interested in​ ​that.​ ​There​ ​are​ ​enough​ ​films​ ​depicting​ ​it.​ ​I​ ​want​ ​to​ ​show​ ​people​ ​something​ ​completely different.​ ​Something​ ​that​ ​does​ ​not​ ​stem​ ​from​ ​societal​ ​frustration,​ ​but​ ​personal​ ​madness​ ​and darkness​ ​of​ ​the​ ​mind.​ ​I​ ​try​ ​to​ ​keep​ ​things​ ​unique,​ ​and​ ​this​ ​is​ ​a​ ​concept​ ​that​ ​works​ ​very​ ​well​ ​with that.​ “

The​ ​Temple​ ​of​ ​Lilith​​ ​is​ ​now​ ​streaming​ ​free​ ​via​ ​Sodom​ ​and​ ​Chimera​,​ ​or​ ​you can​ ​conveniently​ ​watch​ ​it​ ​below.​ ​Now​ ​please,​ ​Darlings,​ ​trust​ ​me​ ​when​ ​I​ ​tell​ ​you​ ​that​ ​The​ ​Temple of​ ​Lilith​ ​will​ ​be​ ​three​ ​of​ ​the​ ​most​ ​sirenic​ ​and​ ​comfortingly​ ​sinful​ ​minutes​ ​of​ ​your​ ​life.
