Exorcist-The-Beginning-2004-movie-Renny-Harlin-6

SYNOPSIS: Years before Father Lancaster Merrin helped save Regan MacNeil’s soul, he first encounters the demon Pazuzu in East Africa. This is the tale of Father Merrin’s initial battle with Pazuzu and the rediscovery of his faith. REVIEW: While the much anticipated release of another film to join the Exorcist franchise fell short, it still had some jarring moments incorporated within its smart but “somewhat” lacking plot line. That film is “Exorcist: The Beginning” released … Continue reading

Top 15 Demon Possession Movies

demon-possession

Ok, you found your way here looking for some clarity on the whole demon possession thing. Well I’m hear to tell ya…… I don’t type haphazardly (and rather consider the details) . The subject has been analyzed and evaluated to qualify and disqualify common misconceptions. First let’s be clear…demon possession is exactly that. That doesn’t mean possession if you “ARE” the antichrist (aka The Omen) that you are possessed, as therefore you’d be doing the … Continue reading

Possession, Movies and True Stories

possession_emily-rose-1

Possession is surely a topic up for plenty of discussion in today’s society as it has been in the past. There are those who believe it exists and those who think it is nonsense. Some religions recognize it as a real phenomenon while science views it as undiagnosed health problems. Despite this, the movie world has not shied away from the subject and has created a few frighteningly disturbed movies that feature some rather scary … Continue reading

exorcist1-510x196

With Halloween around the corner, we wanted to make sure we included our mark on the top 20 scariest films of all time. The selections have been scrutinized over and in fact mirror many other such lists. Though we’d added a few surprises that I think get forgotten from time to time. I wanted to point out something painfully obvious. Alot of our scariest films occurred at the 70′s end years. I don’t think it’s … Continue reading

Top 10 Movies that Scared the Hell Out of Me

michael_myers-big

I realize that different things scare different people. I am scared to death of clowns, monkeys, and robots (God help me if I am ever attacked by a robot dressed like a clown that has a pet monkey with it, while these things may not bother anyone else in the least little bit. The same thing can be said about movies. I know a lot of people who were really freaked out by “The Blair … Continue reading

Top 20 Satanic Movies

tim-curry-legend-3

“Satanic” in the company of these films is something best kept loose. While some entries featured the devil in all his nastiness, others merely featured the antichrist or a possession “by” the antichrist. Still taking it one layer deeper, maybe it was just a nasty ass demon calling the shots (under his masters will) …..Well, maybe it’s better to say a pretty high ranking one. (Was Exorcist really about the devil or just one of … Continue reading

Anneliese-The-Exorcist-Tapes-1

SYNOPSIS: In 1976 a young woman in Bavaria by the name of Anneliese Michel died of starvation and dehydration after an alleged failed exorcism attempt. REVIEW: Anneliese Michel was indeed a real person who indeed went through an alleged failed exorcism and did indeed die of dehydration and starvation in July of 1976.

Top 13 Best / Worst Horror Movies based on Books

HorrorNews.net-Thumbnail

Books are magical. Immersing yourself in the depths of the written word can whisk you away to the far reaches of imagination and drag you naked through the intricacies of epic tales of love, adventure, romance and horror. Unfortunately, the way I see it, books take a lot of time away from the more important enjoyments in life like drunkenly and maniacally weilding a chainsaw just to f*ck some sh*te up. I have also found … Continue reading
