"Christopher Lee narrates just over 11/2 hour doco on astrology and Tarot - covers the basics on how a natal chart is cast and how astrological advice has been used in recent history by the likes of Ronald Reagan, Hitler and John F Kennedy.Tarot section covers the 22 card Major Arcana but doesn't mention much of swords, cups, wands or pentacles or their relationship to present day playing cards. Interesting interviews with parctitioners of these arts as well as balanced comments from critics such as parapsychologists, astronomers and professors of logic and philosophy. Stuart Caplan, credited with the commercial introduction of Tarot cards into the US, is also interviewed and mention is made of the links between Tarot, Kabbalah and Astrology , the fundamentals of which were explored by the Golden Dawn and the notorious Mr Aleister Crowley.Overall a well presented feature obviously shot for TV with a reasonable video and basic stereo soundtrack. Extras are absent which is a pity - some examples from Mr Caplan's fabulous collection of Tarot decks would have been of great interest."

""Strictly Supernatural" is a refreshing change of pace from the typical tarot, oracle and astrology DVD, which tends to focus on the "strictly scientific" aspect of these practices.
And Christopher Lee adds credibility!"
