“Sucker Punch”: How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy



"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

Sucker Punch is an action fantasy thriller that promises its viewers two things: girls and explosions. And it delivers both. But behind the slur of short skirts and CGI effects hides a disturbing underlying story: Sucker Punch is about the life of a mind control slave who dissociates from reality to escape the trauma caused by abuse. This article looks at the hidden meaning and symbolism in Sucker Punch.

Warning: This article deals with disturbing subject matters and contains major spoilers.

Produced by Zack Snyder (Watchmen, 300), Sucker Punch describes the quest of a girl attempting to escape a mental hospital where she was forcibly placed. In order to achieve this goal, our heroine, “Baby Doll”, and her friends, must find five items that will be used to escape the institution. Most critics did not appreciate the video game-like plot line of Sucker Punch and were confused its several levels of alternate realities.

The movie does come across as confusing because there is one important fact about this movie that is not known to most viewers that makes the movie (slightly more) cohesive and coherent: Sucker Punch is about trauma-based mind control. It tells the story of a victim of Monarch Programming (more specifically Beta or Kitten programming) as she becomes increasingly dissociative. The movie takes place in the slave’s psyche, where dissociation is a defense mechanism to escape the unbearable trauma of abuse. The deep dark secrets of Monarch mind control are never truly presented on screen yet they are implied in meanings and symbols throughout the movie.

(Note: If you are not familiar with Monarch programming, I suggest you read the article titled Origins and Techniques of Monarch Mind Control before continuing with this one).

Sucker Punch provides a taste of the confusion lived by actual MK slaves as the film subjects its viewers to some of the same mind twists: Illusion, deceit, reversal, and doublespeak. As the movie advances, the line between reality and fiction becomes increasingly blurry and messages become mixed up. At face value, the movie can be perceived as being about the empowerment of women, but the mind control symbolism of the movie indicates that it is actually about the exact opposite. Our hero Baby Doll is looking for “freedom” but, in the end, “freedom” is definitely not what she thought it would be. In fact, the entire movie can be understood in two completely opposite ways, making it quite a mind bender. Sucker Punch begins with an off-screen voice saying:

“Everyone has an angel. A guardian who watches over us. We can’t know what form they’ll take. One day, old man. Next day, little girl. But don’t let appearances fool you. They can be as fierce as any dragon. Yet they’re not here to fight our battles … but to whisper from our heart … reminding that it’s us. It’s everyone of us who holds the power over the worlds we create.”

Like many other parts of the movie, this introduction can refer to guardian angels helping people take charge of their life or to mind control handlers who have the power to manipulate the thoughts of MK slaves. This only one of the several possible double meanings in the movie.

Abuse at home

The movie takes place during the 1950-60s (despite glaring anachronisms), a period during which actual MK-Ultra experiments were known to be taking place. The main protagonist of Sucker Punch is a twenty-year-old girl known only as Baby Doll. Her name strongly suggests mind control: “baby dolls” do not control their movements or environments. Baby Doll’s background and road to mind control mirror the story of many real-life Monarch slaves: an abusive parent caused multiple traumas at a young age, making her predisposed to dissociation. Her “ownership” is then transferred to an institution where the actual programming takes place, under the supervision of specialists (handlers).

The story of Baby Doll is indeed the typical story of real-life Monarch slaves, who are often subjected to abuse at a young age. After several years of mistreatment, the ruthless parental figures have then no trouble handing over the children to MK authorities – clearing them of the possible criminal charges they could face for years of abuse.

The movie’s introductory sequences present Baby Doll’s source of trauma: an evil step-father.

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

Baby Doll’s drunk step-father looking to abuse her. Many Monarch slaves come from abusive households or multi-generational ritual abuse families.

“The type of father who is most preferred by the Programmers to offer up their children for programming is the phile. If a father will abuse his own little baby girl, then the Programmers know that the man has no conscience. This father’s involvement in criminal activity (and thereby his vulnerability) can be continually increased. They want men who they believe will not develop any qualms later on in life about what they have done.”
– Fritz Springmeier, The Illuminati Formula to Create a Mind Control Slave

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

The step-father’s wounds around the eye produce an emphasis on the “one-eye” symbol, which represents, as seen in other articles, Illuminati mind control. The one-eye symbol appears in other instances during the movie.

The step-father calls the police and accuses Baby Doll of killing her own sister – a crime he committed. She is arrested by the police and immediately drugged. Her ordeal as a Monarch slave begins.

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

Baby Doll is given a sedative by state officials and taken to the mental institution, which turns out to be a mind-control programming site. Mind-control slaves are constantly drugged by their handlers to facilitate their programming.

The Programming Site

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

Baby Doll forcefully taken into the institution. Several mental health institutions were actual mind-control sites used by the CIA.

The mental institution in which Baby Doll is placed has all of the characteristics of a mind-control programming site. The threat of physical and sexual abuse is constant during the entire movie and several techniques are used to trigger dissociation.

Music is extremely important in the institution (and in actual Monarch mind control) where it is used as a programming tool. Most of the songs heard during the movie have suggestive lyrics which, in the context of mind control, can to trigger dissociation. As Baby Doll is taken to her cell, Yoav’s cover of the song “Where is my Mind” is heard. The lyrics describe the feeling of dissociation:

With your feet in the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
But there’s nothing in it
And you’ll ask yourself

Where is my mind
Where is my mind
Where is my mind

In the institution, Baby Doll learns that her step-father paid to subject her to the ultimate form of mind control: a complete lobotomy. The administrator of the mental institution tells the step-father: “Don’t worry, she won’t even remember her name when I’m done with her”.

The movie then fast forwards to the scene of the lobotomy.

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

Lobotomies were performed by inserting a sharp instrument through an eye of the victim to “deactivate” the prefrontal cortex. The movie emphasizes the symbolism of the needle going through an eye to as it symbolically represents Illuminati mind control.

Right at the moment where the doctor is about to hammer the orbitoclast into Baby Dolls’ brain, dissociation occurs and the viewers are taken to an alternate reality. We are taken to the dissociative, imaginary world created by Baby Doll’s psyche, in which she embodies an alter persona: a Beta Kitten.

The Alternate Reality

In Monarch mind control, there are several types of programming, depending on the use the handlers want to make of the slave. In Sucker Punch, it is obvious that Baby Doll and her friends are subjected to Beta Programming – also known as Kitten programming. The emphasis in the beginning of the movie on her step-father’s abuse is, in Monarch Programming terms, the anchor.

“All the programming of each & every slave is anchored upon some type of trauma. One of the first fundamental traumas will be watched, filmed, coded & used as an anchor. For instance, the most brutal abuse of a girl by her father will be used as an anchor upon which to build the Beta programming. (…) Extreme psychosis is created within a child trying to deal with the issues created by the incest from the child’s most important figure–their father figure.”
– Ibid.

In Baby Doll’s alternate reality, the mental institution becomes a club run by a mobster – who is, in real life, the institution’s administrator. The “mental patients” of the institution are dancers…with extras. This distorted version of reality implies one important thing that is not directly mentioned in the movie: If Baby Doll deals in prostitution in her alternate reality, it implies that she is subjected to the same treatment in the mental institution. In actual Monarch programming, repeated and systematic abuse is used to create trauma and dissociation.

In her alternate reality, Baby Doll embodies an alternate persona – what is called a Kitten – who are programmed to give favors. The programming removes inhibitions and, as we’ll see, Baby Doll will be trained to “let herself go” and become sensual on demand.

It is during the scene of the lobotomy that we first see Baby Doll dissociating, turning the sordid operation into an alluring dance routine.

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

Baby Doll being strapped and prepared for the lobotomy.

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

Baby Doll’s alternate world reflecting yet distorting her lobotomy – it is now the premise of an erotic dance routine.

Despite appearances to the contrary, the movie never truly condemns forced prostitution or even mind-control practices. Everything is turned into a fantasy, making the situation cool and attractive. For example, Baby Doll’s Kitten alter persona is constantly dressed as a schoolgirl who is brought in by a priest.

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

Baby Doll’s Sex Kitten alter has a different past. Real Monarch programming slaves are programmed to have different alters, who have different pasts, different attitudes and, sometimes, even speak using different accents than the “core” persona. In Baby Doll’s case, her abusive step-father becomes a priest.

Beta Kittens

In her alternate reality, Baby Doll is forced to dance and please clients. Since her alternate world is a product of dissociation, which “sugar-coats” reality to make it bearable, we can deduce that she is forced to do the same actual mental institution, but the movie never actually shows it.

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

Baby Doll is being told that she is here to please clients. Animal print cushions allude to Kitten programming.

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

Sweet Pea, another “patient”/slave, practicing her dance moves. She is wearing feline print, used in Monarch mind control to identify Beta Kittens.

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

Blondie, played by Vanessa Hudgens, also wears feline prints. Despite not being blonde, she is called Blondie, reflecting Kitten programming’s obsession with blondes (see Marilyn Monroe).

Vanessa Hudgens is a former Disney star; as stated in previous articles, there are numerous links between Disney’s child stars and Monarch programming.

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

Hudgens got this butterfly tattoo (which was highly publicized for some reason) around the time Sucker Punch was released. Tattoos are used in Monarch programming to identify slaves.

Mirrors and Butterflies

Not unlike other movies on the theme of mind control (see Black Swan), tricky mirror effects and confusing reflections are often used during Sucker Punch to symbolize the blurring of the line between reality and fiction and to give the viewers a small sense of the world of a MK Slave.

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

Tricky mirrors and camera movements cause viewers to realize that they were looking at inverted reflections during an entire scene – warning them to never trust what they see. Notice the butterfly between the mirrors, a symbol of Monarch programming.

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

When one of the slaves is shot and killed by Blue, the club the owner, the camera moves to an illuminated mirror from which falls a baby picture of her. Notice the butterfly.

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

Almost all films on mind control feature a shattered mirror at one point – representing the shattering of the slave’s personality. In Sucker Punch, the mirror shatters when Blue attempts to assault Baby Doll.

Second Level of Dissociation

So where do the cool action scenes fit in all this disturbing creepy mess? Well, they all happen in Baby Doll’s head as a way to escape reality. Each action scene occurs when Baby Doll is forced to perform an alluring dance.

Using music as a programming tool, Vera Grosky (the institution’s doctor who becomes the dance instructor in the alternate reality) tells Baby Doll to “let everything go”. In other words, she must dissociate. Following Vera’s orders, when the music starts, Baby Doll is catapulted into a second level of fantasy world. During the length of the song, the dance turns, inside Baby Doll’s head, into an imaginary action scene that vaguely reflects reality. This multiple level of dissociation is Baby Doll’s defense mechanism against the cold hard reality: the third level of the action scene means that she is dancing in the second level of the club, which means she is most likely being abused in the first level of the mental institution (I hope this is not too confusing).

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

During her first dance, Baby Doll dissociates to a world resembling feudal Japan. She is wearing a skimpy school girl outfit, reminding everyone that, behind all of this, the truth is that she is being used for her body.

During this first dissociative action scene, Baby Doll meets the “Wise Man”, the guide who will lead her to “freedom” … and I use that word in quotation marks for a reason. While it may appear that throughout the movie, the Wise Man guides Baby Dolls towards liberty, he knows all along that his help will lead her to the exact opposite – total lobotomy. More on this later.

The second action scene takes place in Germany, during WWI. Once again, Baby Doll is forced to dance. The song she must dance to is extremely meaningful: It is a remake of the classic song White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane. In the context of mind control, the song’s lyrics take on a profound meaning:

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don’t do anything at all
Go ask Alice
When she’s ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you’re going to fall
Tell ’em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
Call Alice
When she was just small

When men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you’ve just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving slow
Go ask Alice
I think she’ll know

When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen’s “off with her head!”
Remember what the dormouse said;
“Feed Your Head”

This classic song can be interpreted in several ways but, in the context of this movie, it perfectly fits into the theme of mind control. As seen in previous articles, the movie Alice in Wonderland is used as an actual Monarch programming tool, where the slave is told to “follow the White Rabbit” through the Looking Glass – the Looking Glass equalling dissociation. For this reason, the symbol of the white rabbit became an important symbol of mind control in popular culture.

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

In the WWI action scene, the girls ride a “mech” that prominently features the MK symbol of the white rabbit.

The other action scenes follow the same pattern: A dissociative song triggers Baby Doll to go into a fantasy world where she must accomplish a mission. Each mission is a distorted version of the real-life mission she and her friends must accomplish to, in the end, escape the institution and find freedom.

The girls succeed and obtain the items required, but not without deaths and sacrifices along the way.

Going to “Paradise”

During the entire movie, Baby Doll’s only goal is to “leave this place” and to “be free”. On numerous occasions, the process is referred to as “going to Paradise”. However, like actual Mind Control slaves, the viewers of the movies are confused with deceitful double-speech and inversions – using attractive words to describe horrible realities. In the movie, “Paradise” and “Freedom” do not equal escaping the mental institution, but rather signify complete dissociation from reality. The Wise Man who seems to be guiding Baby Doll toward “freedom” actually leads her to the acceptance of her lobotomy as the only way to truly “be free”.

This disturbing ending reflects the even more disturbing reality of Monarch slaves: even if they escape the grips of their handlers, they cannot escape the suffering and the trauma they have been subjected to. Baby Doll apparently realizes this fact. So, in the end, instead of escaping the institution with her friend Sweet Pea, Baby Doll acts as a true hero and sacrifices herself to free her friend, creating a diversion that allows her friend escape. Baby Doll is seized and taken to be lobotomized.

After the doctor performs the lobotomy, he says:

“Did you see the way she looked at me? Just in that last moment. It was like … she wanted me to do it”.

At least, Baby Doll’s sacrifice allowed Sweet Pea to escape the institution and be free, right? Not so sure.

After the escape, Sweet Pea is shown at a bus station about to leave town. When she enters the bus, a boy, who looks oddly familiar, looks at her.

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

The weird random kid at the bus station is the same weird random kid that appeared in the WWI scene. Since that scene was a result of dissociation, is the scene of the bus station also imaginary?

When Sweet Pea boards the bus, she realizes that the bus driver is the Wise Man who guided Baby Doll toward her lobotomy. He tells her to get some rest because she has “a long way to go”. Is he leading her to freedom or to a dissociative “paradise”?

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

As the bus driven by the Guide rolls away, we see a billboard saying “Paradise Diner”.

MK Merchandise

Here are some officially licensed Sucker Punch t-shirt designs that contain their fair share of Illuminati mind control symbolism.

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

The teddy bear with stitched forehead and buttons instead of eyes represents children MK slaves and their loss of innocence.

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

The rabbit of the mech with one pupil.

"Sucker Punch": How to Make Monarch Mind Control Sexy

Another shirt design featuring an emphasis on one eye. Dangling from the sword is the “key” to Baby Doll’s freedom…dissociating into fantasies.

In Conclusion

Most moviegoers come out of Sucker Punch believing that its a movie about “empowerment”, “women fighting back” and whatever other buzzwords they’re using these days. While some might perceive Baby Doll as a strong woman fighting back against the oppression of men, others might conclude that the movie caters to the perversions, turning them into a fantasy. The same double-speak can be attributed to the movie when relating to the theme of mind control. While the main message of the movie appears to be about “fighting for freedom”, a deeper look at the movie reveals that it might be saying the opposite. In the end, Baby Doll’s “battle” was not one of rebellion and freedom, but for escape and dissociation. Her “guide” was not an agent of liberation, but a handler who owned the keys to her psyche, guiding her into the fracturing of her personality.

The final words of the movie, said by an off-screen voice, also play on reversals and double-speak. Is it an empowering speech on self-determination or a description of the handler’s complete control of the slave’s psyche?

“Who honors those we love with the very life we live? Who sends monsters to kill us and at the same time sings that we’ll never die? Who teaches us what’s real and how to laugh at lies? Who decides why we live and what we’ll die to defend? Who chains us? And who holds the key that can set us free?”

The movie ends with the same words Baby Doll was told before dancing and dissociating the first time.

“It’s you. You have all the weapons you need. Now fight.”

Through illusion, deceit, and double-speech, the viewers witness a subtle promotion and glorification of the very things the movie apparently goes against. I guess this is why they called the movie Sucker Punch.

Notice how when Baby Doll dissociates for the first time, she turns into Sweet Pea. We never see any of the other girls in her first-tier dissociation outside in the real world. They're all Baby Doll's alters, and the only personality who is allowed to re-enter mainstream society is the character of Sweet Pea. We're just TOLD that another mental patient escaped because of Baby Doll's distraction. But in the first-tier illusion, we are told that Sweet Pea is not a mental wreck like her sister and the other girls, and had no problem getting along with her (let's assume abusive) parents the way her "sister" did. They're ALL Baby Doll's fractured psyche, and the only one who survives the whole episode is the same one who had "no problems" with her handlers. Basically, Sweet Pea survived because she's the aspect of Baby Doll's psyche who was most suited for the harsh realities of the real world because she was not intrinsically rebellious and simply along for the ride. The programmers ONLY allowed her to "escape" because she was most obedient and mundane-flavored of the broken heroine. In truth, the level of reality we are led to believe is true… Read more »


Thank you for this great analysis of the movie! I would like to add another level of analysis in Sucker Punch; it actually describes how people nowadays use media to escape from their daily lives. We are all subject to a daily form of abuse even if it is less extreme than with MK-Slaves; the majority of the population have boring, repetitive jobs that do not fill their souls with joy and fulfillment and which they are obligated to do if they want to survive and pay off their debt (to which they are slaves). We dissociate of this reality by listening to our iphones, excessively surfing the web wherever we go on our tablets, looking television, playing videogames for many hours … All of this so we do not have to deal with how hard we are being buttfu**ed in this very moment. We enter a world where we are no longer in the present moment of reality, mindwandering about when work today will be done and entering our fantasy worlds in which we can be heros and in which we are free to do whatever we want… in order to forget just how bad life can suck and… Read more »


All these articles on here about the MK Ultra programming and how all of this affects and persuades the masses (especially the one about the announcement of Bin Laden's Death) made me realize that probably the most important words Jesus ever spoke were, 'Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do'. It's so sad to me that some of these people never even had a chance, they were pretty much born for this purpose, and I hope that there are a lot of people praying for all of these brainwashed celebrities and others affected by this, rather than condemning and judging them. Our prayers are the only chance they have ever had.


In the deleted scene with the High Roller he tells Baby Doll that he is there to have sex with her after which she will gain her freedom. But she must give herself willingly to him. She must not feel forced. To me this symbolizes the completion of the Monarch programming and her complete transformation in to a true sex kitten.


I once tried to watch this movie a while ago, before I knew about Masonry/Satanism/Zionism/the Illuminati and the symbols… I "lost time" that day, if people know what that means from a dissociative perspective, and couldn't remember large chunks of the movie. I thought I must have fallen asleep, but now I recognize the feeling I get when I'm about to "black out" or "switch" to a persona that isn't going to remember as well, or essentially a dissociative "mode". This was before I had accepted I likely have DID, and even then I had trouble accepting that there were moments where I had "lost time" in my life, but now I know what happened that day. I'm terrified of this movie now, remembering how it made me feel and realizing that it triggered such a reaction. I'm also kind of terrified that I was watching the movie with a "friend" of mine who was relentlessly "interested" in me, and I can't remember what happened. I sure hope I was glued to the couch… He acted pretty normal / natural, so I acted like nothing happened too when I "came back", I just tried to remember what was happening. Still,… Read more »



Great article as always. The T-shirt with the teddy and button eyes got me thinking about Coraline (the animated movie). I watched it a while ago and found it really disturbing and have since thrown out the DVD, so my daughter (6 months old) does not end up watching it in the future. You might think thats a bit overboard, but the movie really creeped me out!

Please can you find time in your busy schedule to do an analysis of Coraline.


This movie was my favorite for awhile, I used to watch it over and over. I was recently diagnosed with DID and have a documented history of severe abuse from the time I was born. Until reading this I didn't realize I was watching something so similar to my own life story.


Wow. Jesus help us.


There's also an emphasis placed on the main characters being named after colors in the disassociated reality. Rocket is red.
Amber is orange.
Blondie is yellow.
Sweet Pea is green.
Blue is… Well, blue.

But there is no one named after a purple color and there is no color for Baby Doll. Almost as if she's the black and white that shouted up so much in Illuminati mind control.

Horton Hears

I agree on everything here. Also, Scott Glenn's character was the handler. He's the one who is the guide, and who takes Sweet Pea on her journey as a mind control slave in the guise of a the bus driver.

Crickem Nigfops

No wonder I was so intrigued by this movie. I wouldn't exactly say I liked it, but I felt like there was some hidden meaning I was missing. Now I know. When I saw the title of this article I was like, "duh." Hah.

Truth Seeker

I would like to say thank you for a great analysis of this film. I think there are several layers and themes running through this movie. I think the highly powerful visual imagery of the film is a meant as a trigger for descendants of the original Monarch mind control slaves. I agree with the theory that personal memory and experience can be passed on genetically from one generation to another. The original Monarch subjects were programmed through an extensive process of trauma, medication, and psychological conditioning. I think this programming is passed on from generation to next and can be triggered by films such as this. If you watch the HBO series Cathouse you can easily how young women have been programmed to willing "sex kittens." In today's culture being an adult film star or sex worker is not something to hide or be ashamed. It is now considered a career choice. Recent mainstream such as "The Girl Next Door," "Zack and Miri Make Porno", and "Girl Friend Experience" have pushed this agenda into the mainstream. "Sucker Punch" supposedly ends with the theme that "Sweet Pea" has her handler could it be she has just exchanged one handler/pimp for… Read more »


''most of what we do in our daily life is triggered subconscious. To break any bad habit or to attain a new one, we MUST be able to program our minds so that subconscious does not pose resistance. But it isn’t that difficult.'' … ''But it isn't that difficult'' I have known this for a long time, through instrospection and logical deduction I realized this when I became self aware. Let me assure you, those of us that have embraced this journey, and understood its implications in all its ramifications, are far too few; and will forever be so, I'm afraid. There is one thing I cannot help but point out, whoever say that ''it isn't that difficult'' wasn't doing it right; or tried, misguidedly, to motivate those lost and confused. Truth is, it's the most difficult thing you'll ever do. Once you've begun, and wholeheartedly embrace it, there's no turning back. Not once, not ever. You will know better, and will have to do right by you. Always craving more hardship, and forever better in its transcendence. Through the very worse of circumstances, for you yourself shall choose them, and will not have it any other way. Not once… Read more »

Shitty movie

Hot chicks


funny how i needed no explanation after leaving this movie, and i am often the one explaining it to my friends…

i completley see where you are coming from, VC, but i really fail to see how this movie is that bad…

Carl Young

And finally, this question: the mystery of whose story it will be, of who draws the curtain. Who is it that chooses our steps in the dance? Who drives us mad, lashes us with whips and crowns us with victory when we survive the impossible? Who is it, that does all these things? Who honors those we love with the very life we live? Who sends monsters to kill us and at the same time sings that we will never die? Who teaches us what's real and how to laugh at lies? Who decides why we live and what we die to defend? Who chains us and who holds the key that can set us free?

The instantia crucis of the story…


When I watched this movie, I was very disturbed. I, too, was aware of the subtle innuendos about phedophilia, abuse and rape. As VC said, the reason for its creep-factor is that the whole story is camouflaged as a tale about empowerment and redemption from supression by creating one's own reality and hiding therein, when in fact this is called dissociation and exactly what the main reason behind the abuse is, in the first place. What a twist. What I found fairly discomforting, though, is that 99% of all critics ripped the movie to pieces for the wrong reasons. Most people disliked, even abhorred it, yet they did not even acknowledge the darker side of the plot. Also, I would advice people to get the director`s cut of this movie. The PG-13 version apperently lacks a substantial amount of shots. These shots might shed even more light on the mindcontrol themes. Incidentally, how rediculous is the thought that they needed to cut a couple of violent scenes and that the blood wasn`t allowed to be red so that the movie would conform with the stipulations for the PG-13 rating, but at the same time the subtle and subliminal story line… Read more »


hey vc i was wondering… this got me thinking about the series of unfortunate events. watched it as a kid and even read the books, but it gave me nightmares every time. it just seems sooo disgustingly wrong! i know it is a little off topic… but now that my eyes are open, i am sure there are some masonic signs and symbols present. yes there definitely is!!!!!


in OPERATION PAPERCLIP, the US Government imported many German doctors and professionals including those who had done horrific mind experiments. "OUR" US Government.

For something really scary google the full version of THE GREENBAUM LECTURE

where a professional psychologist accidentally uncovers MK Ultra and satanic programming

The CIA ran him and any others who found out about this out of their positions-or threatened their families.

The author was never heard from again, and quietly teaches botany in U of Utah


Mark, you are SO full of s--t. I emailed the man who gave the Greenbaum lecture, and he was NOT run out of his profession, and has won various awards for his work. His name is D.C. Hammond, and you are spreading LIES about him, sir.


i do like you analyses of the movie, i remember watching it a few years back and didn't really know what to think of it. it was weird and didn't really feel like an empowering movie at all. So reading this text helped me to make a lot more sense of it. However i do disagree with this being a movie that plays into the hands of the "elite" as for me it is a way to try understand the psychology of what happens to the mind during such an ordeal. and i'm grateful that someone has the courage to make it so obvious to those who know a little about the subject and still not too obvious so that people can interpret it in as many different ways as they like. that is good storytelling in my book. i remember wondering if the friends she saw were not also part of her fantasy. maybe some co-conscious parts that were fighting within her. If they did actually exist, then i do think it is "fair" to the story that the other girl didn't get away either. to me it is a tragic story about tragic unfortunately real experiences a lot… Read more »
