Comments from imdb:
"…THEE RITUAL OV PSYCHICK YOUTH. I have to admit - this is a pretty powerful short film that shows some rough material. It's shot very art-house style with dark lighting and some strange interspersed editing - but it works on a shock-value level. It starts with a bound man being whipped by some others. Later on we see this same person laid on a mattress and along with others of the "group" and drugged and ritualistically cut with a knife. This stuff is real. There are obviously no special FX involved here. There are some strange brief scenes edited in of some sort of sex rituals and other weird visuals. Eventually - the guy on the mattress is pissed on and given what appears to be a blood enema. All of this isn't quite as horrible as it sounds, but it is semi-disturbing and not recommended for the average film viewer. There is no "story" involved in this short-film - just more of an "artistic" documentary of the events taking place. The strange ambient music makes the whole thing that much stranger…"
"…"The Ritual ov Psychick Youth" which documents a brutal and sadistic TOPY initiation ritual.We see a bound man whipped, drugged, ritualistically mutilated with a knife and smeared with his own blood.Then he is given a blood enema.This forty minutes long video is truly disturbing as it's obviously real with no special effects involved.Its sheer power to shock and disturb resulted in labelling Genesis P.Orridge as a Satanist…"
"…The "Ritual Ov Psychick Youth" segment was filmed in documentary style to capture the brutal ritual in unflinching although sometimes dimly light or poorly focused detail. The sheer verisimilitude of "Ritual Ov Psychick Youth" incited the "Satanic witch hunts" that resulted in the ousting of Genesis P.Orridge from England in the early nineties. The scenario plays out amid a cacophony of horns and rattles that rise and fall like a swarm of locusts and we watch as a young man, bound and naked, is kicked, whipped, dragged, and painted with offal over the next forty-odd minutes. The docu-style footage is broken up with montage shots of a woman undergoing scarification, quick flashes of pornography, and if this wasn't enough to shock the most seasoned and experienced viewers of filth, you get to see an enema as well. Not everything is shown clearly as there is an act of genitalia mutilation at the climax of the ritual which is mostly obscured.
"All the most vile worms and decadent amoral creatures from the gutter were represented here tonight. These people are the wreckers of civilization." –Genesis P. Orridge quoting Nicholas Fairburn.
Its easy to see how people could react much in the same way as Nicholas Fairburn. I myself felt thoroughly repulsed and sickened by the acts depicted in "Ritual Ov Psychick Youth". This is no doubt the exact reaction that Genesis P. Orridge had in mind for the viewers. Thee Temple Ov Psychick Youth proclaims to be a cult that does not exist and seeks to help people fully actualize their own individuality through experiments designed to shock viewers and challenge their perceptions of social and sexual paradigms. This is not a film designed for the general public, but should be of interest to anyone interested in magickal rituals or sleaze hounds alike…"
Da good stuff from GL
