Secrets of the Serpent: In Search of the Sacred Past (2006)

Available worldwide

Across time and across the world, an ancient serpent cult once dominated mankind and has since disappeared over the eons. Now, after years of research, the real religious history of the world can be traced to this original belief system. Philip Gardiner reveals some of the world’s most mysterious places that were once sacred to the serpent cult and ties them in to modern religious beliefs.

Along the way, he decodes the symbols and presents a new light on ancient mythologies. He also reveals the real bloodline spoken of by Dan Brown in the Da Vinci Code – it was in fact a bloodline using serpent as a metaphor. This secret history may have overarching agendas that still influence the religious and politic environment, today.

Lots of interesting and thought provoking information. The music put a little crazy feeling to it at times.

The music on this video distracted so powerfully from the content that it made it hard to get the interesting information made available. The sound track was so jarring that I wasn't able to sit through the whole thing...

An excellent documentary almost ruined by a completely absurd and very distracting music sound track.

Yes, if Gardiner ever makes another film he should know not to use the "soundtrack of his youth" for his documentaries to be taken with any degree of seriousness. If you want to convince people of the sacredness of ancient snake worship you don't use death metal for a film's background music for heaven's sake.

between the metal ick of background and the all too frequent double exposure it's hard to say where this movie is coming from (a headache)

I've now given up on watching anything made by this director. Music throughout the entire film has drowned out any hope of getting anything from this, or even hearing any of the observations that may have been offered. I don't know if they were since I couldn't hear anything anyone actually said.

I tried watching both of Philip Gardiner's films on serpent worship and I couldn't get through either one of them. The background music was too loud and distracting, and in some instances completely inappropriate.
