Movies about Secret Societies, Sects and Freemasonry

For those of you interested in horror movies about satanic and demonic cults, there's a dedicate section here.

This list contains movies about secret societies, “alternative” and “mysterious” religious cults, power groups (or more rarely subversive ones, like in “The East” or “The Wave”) which act in the shadows and are closed and exclusive group.

The best films about religious sects: from “Scientology” to the horror “The Sacrament”

The issue of minor religious cults, called “sects” often with a negative connotation, has a great appeal, surely connected also to the mysterious and sole nature of these groups. Cinema has dealt relatively little with it and often has changed in key horror the element of extremism: The Veil, Colonia, The Invitation and The Sacrament are all, despite their diversity, very well thought out and recent thrillers. These films that gaze into the organizational mechanisms of these religions are rare, which are often very precise and articulated: The Master, by Paul Thomas Anderson, is probably the most interesting work and tells (even without mentioning it explicitly) the genesis of Scientology and the story of his founder Ron Hubbard. Tom Cruise’s pseudo religion is at the heart also of the beautiful documentary Going Clear, while another title to take into account is the Italian Worldly Girl, maybe the only film focused on Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Films about secret cults, esotericism, occult and initiations

It isn’t always spirituality and faith that inspire the birth of closed and secret groups. The variety is surprising: in The Skulls the affiliation occurs through the system of student fraternities, while in The Wave everything starts as a social/school experiment that got out of the teacher’s hand. The East tells about the story of eco-terrorists while Foxfire tells the (true) story of a group of girls that in the ‘50s constitute a secret league to defend themselves from gender-based violence. Fight Club, finally, serves to beat each other to death and to let off steam of social pressure and daily stress.

Masonry at the cinema: “Forces occultes” and other few references

If the principle “the least said, the better” is valid, maybe Masonic lodges are really powerful as someone suspects: indeed, cinema has almost never dealt with that. The only true film about Masonry is Forces occultes (1943), a kind of denunciation against the so-called “Judeo-Masonic plot”. Other references can be found in films that are very different from each other such as Filth, based on the novel by Irvine Welsh, the adventurous National Treasure. In the film about Cagliostro, he himself is told as one of the founders of the movement . In I, Don Giovanni the protagonist joins the Masonry and in The Kingdom by Lars von Trier several meetings are held in a lodge.
