The Organization

The Organization

This we offer in humility and fear. For the blessed peace of your eternal slumber. As it ever was.
~ Gary Sitterson, a member of the Organization, reciting a prayer to the Ancient Ones.

The Organization is a loose term to describe the massive worldwide conglomerate that runs the Rituals dedicated to the Ancient Ones and they too control some government aspects. They are the primary antagonist group throughout the film; they are shown to be extremely adept to the level of military grade weaponry and technology, even within some cases surpassing today's known technological ability (such as the invisible hexagonal wall that contains the sacrifices into the ritual area.).

Even while being so advanced, the Organization maintains its roots as an ancient deity-worshipping cult, devoted to prayers for their sacrifices and following various pagan rituals.

After their annual Rituals suddenly start to fail, they were down to the last one here within a cabin somewhere in the United States and 3 of the 5 chosen humans were properly sacrificed, leaving "The Fool" (Marty Mikalski) and "The Virgin" (Dana Polk).

Every single nightmarish monster, including the ones who attacked the above-mentioned humans' best friends, is a manifestation of the Ancient Ones' desires for the punishment of human youth, and they are under the Ancient Ones' control. All the monsters were let loose during the System Purge in which the workers at the Organization fall victims to the multiple monsters. 

Marty Mikalski and Dana Polk escape the Purge while the rest of the Organization were slaughtered by the escaped monsters and find a huge sacrificial chamber and the pit below it where the Ancient Ones resided. Later, they personally meet the Director who explains their situation. She tells Dana to shoot Marty, but Dana is attacked by the Werewolf, and the Director is attacked by Patience Buckner, who falls into the pit. Marty and Dana sit back and wait for the Ancient Ones to come, and one of them destroys the Facility and the Cabin.

Worldwide Locations

The Organization has various annual operations that are performed at once all over the world in order to better their chances of successfully pleasing the Ancient Ones. Some of the locations at which they perform sections of the ritual are:

  • The Facility in the United States (where the movie takes place)
  • Buenos Aires, Argentina
  • Stockholm, Sweden
  • Madrid, Spain
  • Kyoto, Japan
  • Rangoon, Burma
  • Berlin, Germany




  • The Organization's name is also an alias of the powerful religious cult known as The Order in the SIlent Hill horror/survival videogame series.
  • The Organization must have some government ties due to the fact that Daniel Truman is a government recruit and has been briefed by and transferred from an unnamed U.S. government agency.
  • The Organization bears strong resemblance to SCP Foundation.
  • The Organization may be loosely based on the Illuminati.
  • The clip of the Stockholm branch is in fact the ending clip from the 1997 movie Dante's Peak.
  • The clip of the Rangoon branch is footage from Roland Emmerich's Godzilla.
  • The clip of the Berlin branch is likely the ending of the 2006 movie The Wicker Man.
  • The clip of the Buenos Aires branch is in fact the ending clip from the 2005 movie King Kong.
