PAGAN FILMS
FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.

What follows is a list of films which have some kind of relevance to Paganism. They range from documentaries to horror and skin-flicks. I haven't by any means seen all of these films, but if you have seen any of them please feel free to make any comments. Likewise, if you think a film should be on the list please tell me about it. There is a Comments Box after the index of plays for you to use. Please remember though, I am British and not a very good linguist. Because of this I would be very grateful if you tell me the language you are using to make your comments.

Many thanks, Bright Blessings and Merry Meetings,
Martin Collins.
