The Devil’s Member: The Naughty Novelization of WARLOCK

It’s no longer cutting edge to remind you, dear readers, that Steve Miner’s 1989 horror film WARLOCK is an underrated classic. WARLOCK is mentioned so often by horror fans that it should just be considered a well-known horror tentpole by now; just like THE LAIR OF THE WHITE WORM, or the notion of “DIE HARD-as-a-Christmas-movie,” […]

Five People Who Sold Their Souls To The Devil (Allegedly)

Maybe it’s a leftover of my Catholic childhood, but there’s little I find scarier than the idea of a pact with the devil. Logically, I don’t know why the Source of All Evil would respect a contractual obligation in the first place, but I still don’t even joke about selling my soul to the devil… […]
