Christopher Lee’s Best Movie

Jesus wins.

I was genuinely saddened to learn that Christopher Lee died last Sunday. For some of us, he wasn’t just great talent, but an iconic figure from our childhood. I was a Monster Kid of the 1970s: raised on Saturday matinees, the 4:30 movie, Chiller Theatre on channel 11 (that hand!), and Famous Monsters of Filmland. [Read More...]

The Most Important Book of the Year is Only $5 For a Limited Time

manual-spiritual-warfare-1043105

Paul Thigpen’s Manual for Spiritual Warfare is a must-have. I hate the phrase “instant classic,” partly because it’s an oxymoron, and partly because time is fickle, but I can see this one being read and handed down and treasured a hundred years from now. Thigpen’s book is a clear-headed and faith-filled look at the devil [Read More...]

Night Will Fall: Watch The Actual “Hitchcock Holocaust Film” Online

By all accounts, the documentary Night Will Fall is an excellent piece of work. It chronicles the production–and suppression–of a vivid and gruesome documentary about the Nazi death camps shot in April 1945. The marquee name attached to it is Alfred Hitchcock, even though Hitch’s exact contribution is unclear. He was brought in to supervise the [Read More...]

Taking the Devil Seriously

Republished from June 2014, because posts about Satan always bring the evil little worms out of the woodwork. The reality of the devil was one of the hardest things for me to accept when I returned to the Church. When I made my choice to assent and submit to all the Church teaches, I knew I [Read More...]

dobson

As part of what was allegedly a “Satanic suicide pact,” Mark Dobson killed Helen Dorrington (age 52) and Mary Hepburn (32) in May 2012. He cut their throats in a TraveLodge motel in Barrie, Ontario, in a bloody scene marked by Satanic art and dismembered dolls.

The Devil Tempts St. Benedict

Rule

This illumination showed up in my medievalist Twitter feed today and I tracked it back to the so-called Mettener Regel (1414), a manuscript of the rule of Saint Benedict as practiced at the Abbey of Metten. The manuscript is illustrated by moments in the life of St. Benedict. At first, I thought this might be an illustration [Read More...]

A Compilation of My Dark and Ghostly Posts

Frankenstein color (220 x 265)

My first writing was in the horror genre, contributing to publications like The Horror Show and Cemetery Dance, and writing entries for the encyclopedia Supernatural Fiction Writers. I even worked for George A. Romero’s Laurel Entertainment film and TV production company for a little while. I think there’s value in exploring dark themes, fear, and even revulsion in [Read More...]

pazuzu-amber-algarad

A North Carolina man named “Pazuzu Algarad” (he changed it to the name of the demon from The Exorcist) has apparently confessed to murdering two men and eating parts of their bodies during Satanic rituals. The men–Joshua Wetzler, age 37, and Tommy Welch, 26–were then buried in his backyard with the help of two women. [Read More...]
