Illuminati symbolism on “The Interview”


*I’d like to point out that this original post was published in June 2014; loooong before all of the excitement over Sony hackers and other buggery


The film, The Interview, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco is splattered all over the news at the moment because North Korea is offended by the plot line which includes the assassination of their leader, Kim Jong-un:


Dave Skylark and his producer Aaron Rapoport run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.” When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un.

Of course, you can see the low lying fruit here would be to go in on the history of the CIA involvement in various conspiracies such as the mind control experiments known as MKULTRA, or even Operation Mockingbird that they used to sway popular opinion on communism through media and television programming; but I’ll choose another path.

To me, it seems, that this could be an orchestrated event (aka PsyOp) to drum up interest in the film (although it’d have to be pretty elaborate). Of course, how much interest do you really need to drum up when you’ve got James Franco and Seth Rogen together; but still. I’m just postulating because that’s what I like to do and it seems that nobody else is exploring this angle yet.

North Korea has been voicing their opinion, going as far as to threaten the US. Here’s CNN:

“The enemies have gone beyond the tolerance limit in their despicable moves to dare hurt the dignity of the supreme leadership,” a North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman told the country’s state-run news agency Wednesday.

But the North Korean government showed little sign of favor toward the film on Wednesday, accusing the United States of “bribing a rogue movie maker” to produce it.

And it warned that Franco and Rogen’s comedy, which it said had touched off “the towering hatred and wrath of the service personnel and people of the DPRK,” would have consequences.

“Those who defamed our supreme leadership and committed the hostile acts against the DPRK can never escape the stern punishment to be meted out according to a law wherever they might be in the world,” the foreign ministry spokesman said.

“If the U.S. administration connives at and patronizes the screening of the film, it will invite a strong and merciless countermeasure.”

The North Koreans have even test fired some rockets into the Sea of Japan, just one day after their outrage over the film, arguably a show of aggression.  I question the timing of all of this publicity in the last couple of years, given that Dennis Rodman seemed to take some kind of ambassador slot to the rogue state. Rodman has been accused of having Illuminati tendencies, given that he has nose rings like a bull (claiming he’s the bull deity Moloch), and was even on the cover of Rolling Stone with Moloch/Devil horns:

It doesn’t help matters that he was also a Chicago Bull (more horn symbolism):

If you’re new to this idea of Moloch symbolism in pop culture, check out the post on Decoding Illuminati Symbolism: Moloch, owls, and the Horns of Satan for more:

IlluminatiWatcherDotCom Occult Holiday Moloch

…and an All Seeing Eye tattoo on his hand (see Decoding Illuminati Symbolism: The All Seeing Eye and the 666 Hand Gesture for more):

Dennis Rodman Eye of Horus


He’s also played in exactly 911 games (more occult symbolism). Here’s the wiki screenshot if you don’t believe me:


Dennis Rodman 911 games


And not to mention the endless amount of occult symbolism we find from Mr. Franco. Feel free to peruse through the articles, and be sure to check out his Illuminati symbolism in the music video for Love in the Old Days where you can see his six degrees of separation from Charles Manson:

You’ll also see on that post how he got into a live performance of a ritual with Kenneth Anger and Noot Seear from those dreaded Twilight films:


In conjunction with the current exhibition For the Martian Chronicles, L&M Arts is pleased to present The Bartzabel Working, a performance by filmmaker and artist Brian Butler. Based on a ceremonial evocation of the spirit of Mars, first written and performed in London in 1910 by the famed British occultist Aleister Crowley, the ritual later became part of Los Angeles history in 1946 when Jet Propulsion Laboratory rocket scientist and Crowley protégé Jack Parsons conducted his own version of this rite, with the intention of placing a martial curse on a pre-Scientology L. Ron Hubbard.

For his reinterpretation of this historical performance, Butler will conjure Bartzabel, the spirit of Mars, evoking the site that was once home to the late sci-fi author Ray Bradbury and currently comprises L&M Arts. The ritual will have Butler as Chief Magus, leading a cast drawn from his upcoming feature film King Death and featuring Henry Hopper as Assistant Magus, Noot Seear as Magus Adjuvant, and James Franco as Material Basis, the vessel though which the spirit of Mars manifests.



Ok, I’m really getting off track here, but yea, there’s been a lot of pop culture exposure to North Korea lately, and now we’ve got this disapproval/threat about the film.

So let’s take a look at the film poster:



Seems fairly innocuous right? Well, here’s where I question my sanity and wonder if I’ve been researching conspiracies for just a little bit too long now. When I look at this poster I see a Baphomet hidden in there. Follow my logic for a second here as I show you a breakdown of how I claim this.

Here are the two together, side by side:


The Interview Baphomet



And here’s just the zoom in on the Baphomet; the occult symbol of choice:


The Interview Baphomet 2


Now look at the poster again with my writing showing where I see the aspects of the Baphomet:


The Interview Baphomet  25


And the overlay:


The Interview Baphomet 3



I know it’s not exact but you can see it can’t you? Or am I legit crazy now? Feel free to comment below and tell me to kill myself, I really enjoy those! lol


POST-FILM UPDATE: Since the film’s release there has been a lot of activity- including the alleged North Korean hacking of Sony’s emails and databases. The claim is that North Korea threatened to blow up theaters that played The Interview, so Sony changed their release schedule such that it would go online in ON DEMAND formats.

What’s strange is that the CIA allegedly were involved with the filming of this (as Freeman and Jamie Hanshaw reported in their Celebrity Mind Control-pop culture-Illuminati episode). What’s stranger is the predictive programming of the Sony hacking and the film industry. There is a film called Blackhat that features a VERY similar plot line; check out NYTimes’ description:

At a critical moment in Michael Mann’s cyberthriller, “Blackhat,” a naïve security guard slips a young woman’s thumb drive into his corporate computer.

The camera lingers on the drive’s all-uppercase brand name: SONY. A few covert keystrokes later, the system is penetrated — one hacker, a good guy, is within reach of an illicit fortune stolen by another.

If this is not exactly cinematic art imitating life, the release of “Blackhat” by Universal Pictures next month will at least show spooky synchronicity with the very real hacking attack on Universal’s crosstown competitor, Sony Pictures. Set to open on Jan. 16, Mr. Mann’s movie is one of the most authentic film treatments of malicious hacking in memory — and it has been given added cultural urgency by inadvertently crossing paths with the Sony assault.

In the film, about half way in, there is a scene where you see Franco doing the Mano Cornuto horns several times, so maybe the horned deity stuff isn’t so far fetched:

James Franco Moloch The Interview


Because this isn’t the first time he’s done it…

James Franco Moloch Horns


Freeman Fly and Jamie Hanshaw talked about the overabundance of homosexual references in the film, and its occult significance since occultist magick practitioners like Aleister Crowley used homosexuality as a tool of energy during rituals. You’ll also see secret societies like Skull & Bones allegedly forcing their members to conduct homosexual orgies in order to blackmail them so they don’t release the Order’s secrets.

Seth Rogen has also been all over the media since the film’s release. He’s been demonized for his misinterpreted tweet about the American Sniper film, which begs the question of what he did to piss the ‘pop culture gods’ off so much. This also includes an interview in Rolling Stone in which we see the familiar symbolism of the All Seeing Eye:

Seth Rogen The Interview illuminati All Seeing Eye


You’ll also notice they are saying Seth Rogen is at “the crossroads.” This could mean a quite sinister reference to making a Faustian deal with the Devil. I covered this in further detail in my hip hop conspiracy book SACRIFICE: MAGIC BEHIND THE MIC:

The term “Crossroads” is of great importance here because it appears so often. For example, Britney Spears had a film called Crossroads in 2002 and she found herself in Eric Clapton’s Crossroads rehab center some years later. There’s also a 1936 blues song by Robert Johnson called Crossroads (or Cross Road Blues) where he talks about selling his soul to the devil in exchange for his musical abilities, and the Faustian bargain myth was depicted in the 1986 film Crossroads. Rap group Bone Thugs ‘n’ Harmony released a song dedicated to Eazy-E in 1996 called Tha Crossroads that stars a grim reaper marking people for death and was featured on the album E. 1999 Eternal that had songs like Mr. Ouija 2 that asks the Ouija board if the rappers will die of murder. Additionally, Freeman asserts that Britney chose the salon called Esther’s because Esther is another name for the Illuminati-Babylonian Goddess Ishtar. It was also chosen by Madonna as an alter ego for her Kabbalah personality, Esther Madge.

  1. I don’t think you are crazy, I think you are sharp – I never would have caught that. Also please note, at the bottom of the poster – it says FALL in big black letters. Yes, of course, that means an autumn release date – BUT, hello, it also sounds like THE Fall. Associated with an abstract representation of Baphomet, that’s pretty creepy.

    I wondered about this movie – how dumb do you have to be to provoke a maniacal dictator who has already threatened the US? It’s like a controversy I read about the film 300 when it came out. It offended the Persians in Iran who thought it was the US government maligning them, because in a lot of countries on Earth, there is no commercial release of any kind of media. ALL of it, every film, newspaper, TV station, etc, is propaganda under the control of the state. They therefore have no concept that there could just be some people making a movie for a commercial venture, or an individual opinion. I am sure that is the case in dictatorship as crushing as N Korea. Someone on Vigilant Citizen remarked once to me that there was apparently a lot of Manchurian Candidate style psyop stuff going on around the Korean War and N Korea.

    Between the Ukraine situation, N Korea issuing threats, ISIS/ISIL and China and Japan scuffling over territory rights, it’s like the world is having a nervous breakdown.

    • Excuse my engkish grammer I’m Dutch.
      What I wanted to say is you don’t have to worry about Kim Jung Un, he studied in Switserland and is a western puppet, just like they (central banking occult elite) funded Mao (he had a Rockefeller univercity physician that wrote his life story being the physician of Mao ) or Pol Pot etc they all got funded by the west and are artificial enemies, just like Hitler in the 2nd WW. Hitler was the Black sun for the sun cult of freemasonry and Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin were all freemasons. It’s all stageplay.

  2. Also the Transformers new movie is being released on the night of the black moon of death just check your calendar.Paul Walker killed on a black moon as well as John Lennon,Princess Diana,Tupac and Biggie,Titanic was sunk as well on a black moon at the witching hour of midnight.The Aurora and Sandy Hook killings also on a black moon.Too many more to mention.Syrian/Turkey border is 911 kms long,the last 007 movie Skyfall released on the 9th day of the 11th month 2012.Cars the kids movie release date was 06/06/06.

    Post a Reply
    • Cars was released on June 9 and Skyfall was realeased technically 11/9/12, wouldn’t 9/11/12 be more suspicious?… Sounds like someone is twisting the truth to cause sensation. At this point any of those claims in your comment are hard to believe without proper evidence. I could easily claim something like that, all female celebrity deaths happened to happen on sacred occult holidays and that they happened in locations with very specific GPS location numbers like 66.6, and people would believe that because it sounds ominous enough.

  4. Maybe a little more concrete evidence.The CN Tower in Toronto has a dimension of 66.6 meters,the Washington Monument is 555ft tall which is 6660 inches,Portsmith,England the monument there is 170 meters which is 566.6ft tall,the NYC trade towers took 80 months to build which equals 6.66 years,One World Trade is 1776ft tall,if you add the height of the rest of the new buildings they add up to 6660ft in height.The cornerstone of the Washington Monument was laid on July 4th 1848 on the night of the black moon.

  7. As someone who believes in this kind of stuff, I think you might be looking a little too deep, as Freud once said, “Gentlemen, there are times when a cigar is only a cigar!”.

    However not to say that there may or may not be other “occult” or “illuminati” symbolism (depending on what you prefer to call them as they are one and the same in my book) in the film, I think I may check out this film to see whether or not there is any of that at all in it.

    If you look hard enough you will always find symbolism everywhere in everything though what it actually means will always be up for debate (though in some cases it blatantly obvious what the intent is!).

  8. Baphomet is not a symbol of choice. The torch is symbolizes intellect, or the bringing of knowledge. the fact he has beasts symbolizes the balance between male and female. the hands symbolize the cause and effect relationship between higher realms and earth “as above, so below”. the bestial features symbolize the balance of man and nature. most of the symbology is about balance

  9. I see it but not as you do. Yours is a bit of a stretch. Imagine it this way however (it makes much more sense): We’ll use the supplied Baphomet image. Now look at the poster. Imagine instead off two heads it is one (as the shoulders do appear to be of one body). Possibly one mind. In the center of the head (on the poster) is a star, just like the Baphomet. The guns protrude out on the poster just like the horns on the image. And notice how the shape and location of the rockets match the arch in the wings on your image. There, I believe you have your evidence, though I do see yours as well. And about the “Fall” vs “Autumn” comment, I’d agree that the word was chosen carefully. Especially as the movie releases on Christmas day. Which is, by my calculations, Winter, not Autumn…or Fall.

    • I also did not see what you were getting at when you presented it, but saw what Sharper Eye saw when I compared the images side by side after you wrote “Here are the two together, side by side”. Since I was scrolling down, I had not yet seen your presentation of the evidence.
      Try lightening the image then superimposing them to see the results.

  10. Hey Isaac,

    I just wanted to point out that James Franco didn’t make it to that Crowley evocation.

    Also I love your research and site. It has given me a keen eye for esoteric symbolism. Just today uhad to drive through Bellwfontaine Cemetery in St. Louis, and man can i tell you i have never seen more Masonic imagery in my life. Keep it up buddy.

  11. Needless to say the movie is made, directed and scripted by talentless Jews (xcept maybe for Franco) and the cast also includes many “chosenites”.

I command you, moreover, to obey me to the letter, I who am a minister of God despite my unworthiness; nor shall you be emboldened to harm in any way this creature of God, or the bystanders, or any of their possessions.

  17. When you first pointed out the Baphomet subliminal, I saw it from the actual top of the “Interview” photo, where the top star was the forehead location with the various lines outlining the horns, the rockets as its wings, the flags as the twined snakes aka the medical icon and the tanks as its legs sitting in the “criss-cross applesauce”/Indian/Native American sitting method.

    Let me know if you see that resemblance….

  23. You know what’s symbol? A dragon dog, which is actually a tiger! hahaha this is well obvious to us, fine connoisseurs! Or not?! hahaha And also one of the moral of the film is the manipulation of “woman” on the “man”! …But after all is a Great Movie! And fuck the culture, because that’s what people like! Who lives in our time cannot see, but we are witnessing great things in our time! And our cinema is one of the great things! Even looking so stupid to some, good soft eyes can see their true importance! And… Sorry if something got messed up in the text, I do not speak English!

  24. Hey i have been thinking a lot about all the stuff that its around us, like mirrors… have you think about that? everyone have a mirror at least one, and thats pretty sacred if you think that someone its watching you every single time, like inter-dimensional portals…
    i have been thinking also about all the artificial lights in the streets that are new and illuminate all like its still a day, i see a few days behind a huge line in the sky while its night and all that stupid fakes lights obstruct my watch, but im that kind of people that watch the sky all the time, i just feel intimidate since the streets have a lot of lights, like someone watching… its an awful feeling btw… also what about the new TVs? what if there its a microphone or maybe a camera hidden? maybe the cellphones… the front camera could see us all the time… i dont know, its just a few thoughts that i have usually, we are not free at all, and all the people that know something about this awful and sadly true, have this kind of feelings, that maybe its not so crazy as the ordinary people thinks… please share the message

It was really disturbing to see children covered in blood. And is lot of Katy Perry, whom we all know is the ultimate puppet, apparently their favorite song was Fireworks
