demon-2013-movie-Rob-Walker-7

SYNOPSIS: A couple is terrorized in their new house haunted by the vengeful ghost of the woman’s former husband who possesses her young son. REVIEW: For those expecting the storyline of the 1977 Italian made film Beyond the Door 2 (originally titled Shock) to be similar to the devil possession storyline based in Beyond the Door 1, prepare to be disappointed.

Demon Profile: Baal

Baal-demon-1

Baal, among one of the 7 princes of Hell has often been associated as being one in the same with the demon Beelzebub.

This particular demon has also been confused with the Semitic deity known as Ba’al. To further confuse my readers, in the Christian New Testament, Baal is spoken within the same words that … Continue reading

Larry Cohen

There is plenty of room for argument about director Larry Cohen. His films, when mentioned at all, tend to be dismissed as the lowest kind of hack work. It’s Alive (1973), one of the most successful films of its year at the box-office, appears in a book called The Best, Worst And Most Unusual Horror Films by Darrell W. Moore. It’s in the ‘Worst’ chapter, and is awarded one star out of ten – I’d … Continue reading
