The former child star Ricky Schroder, known for his heterodox political views, took to Instagram last week with a tale of Hollywood debauchery, attesting to a strange ritual which the actor reports to have witnessed in his youth.
Schroder began the story with an aside about a beloved uncle who fought on behalf of America in the World War II, noting how his uncle’s unit would summarily execute members of the Schutzstaffel who they encountered on the field.
However, Schroder’s video takes a strange turn when he begins to reflect on a bizarre incident from the libertine era of 1970s and 80s Hollywood: an occult ritual which would make Heinrich Himmler blush, which Schroder claims to have witnessed at a very young age.
“When I was young, I couldn’t drive yet. I was hanging out with the older guys… somebody popped in a cassette tape into a VHS player, and there was a room with a body, I believe it was male, laying on a table, and people came around the room—it was dimly lit, but they had hoods and robes on—and they had some sort of ritual, where they took out a knife and they cut him down the side. It was his right side, and they took out parts of him, and the blood started flowing, and they were chanting.”
“There was [sic] women there, and they took off their clothes, and then they took the blood and they smeared it on their bodies, and they started to be sexual with each other. It was quite disturbing to see.”
Schroder then says that his friends gave him the cassette tape, which he then took and showed to another trusted individual, who instructed the young Schroder never to watch the video again and to return it to its owner.
“I was always confused about why they didn’t ask where it came from. And so I believe that I met some of the cult members when I was younger, and they could be the Illuminati or tied to them, and if you type in “Illuminati” backwards, it’ll actually take you to the NSA” (Indeed, a cursory Google search of “itanimulli” does return the official website of the National Security Agency as top result, reportedly the consequence of a prank.)

Rumors of Hollywood occult practice have circulated since the institution’s golden age, and movie stars including Dan Aykroyd, Sammy Davis Jr. and Gabrielle Anwar have all professed to dabble in various occult traditions.
During the 90s, there was a particular fashion among the Beverly Hills elite for Kabbalah, a Jewish esoteric tradition which seeks to find surprising, hidden meaning in traditional Hebrew texts.
However, occultist and professional diviner Chris Gabriel is dismissive of Schroder’s particular account, suggesting that such incidents are rare and not reflective of true esoteric tradition.
“Likely a schizophrenic, undoubtedly traumatized as a child, I doubt the reality of it,” Gabriel said in a statement to Resist the Mainstream regarding Schroder and the alleged ritual.
“But it reminds me of Exquisite Corpse, which theorizes that [Los Angeles murder victim] Black Dahlia was an “art murder.” I’d imagine any ‘Hollywood deviancy that reaches into death rituals are art murders. Related to the occult only in aesthetic.”
When asked about the distinction between “art murder” and authentic occult ritual, Gabriel opined that the former lacks tradition and emerges as a response to art and media.
“Authentic occult groups are generally short lived, as they rely on certain capable individuals to maintain them,” Gabriel added.
Nonetheless, for those concerned with the seedy underbelly of the entertainment industry, such distinctions seem to matter little.
And Schroder was adamant about what he perceives as the dark networks of occult blackmail which he believes underlie the entire system, spanning far beyond the shining stars of the movie industry.
“If, in fact, we have no accountability or justice, it could be because these people who are supposed to bring us justice, and protect and defend the Constitution, are corrupted by this cult, which I believe exists… globally, but it especially has roots in Hollywood and in the environmental cult and in industry and politics,” Schroder said.
“I have no fear of them. I only fear Jesus,” the actor concluded.
