Five of the Most Shocking Real-Life “Satanic” Crimes

In spite of the paranoid fantasies of religious people, there doesn’t seem to be much of an organized satanic religion in the United States. There’s no underground network of evil priests and cultists worshipping Satan in depraved midnight rituals held in desecrated churches. (Believe me, I’ve looked.) Beyond political groups using “Satan” as a provocation, Satanism […]

Slashback! Why CEMETERY OF TERROR is Mexico’s Best Slasher EVER

I know you’ve been missing my regular column on vintage slasher flicks… but it’s okay, you don’t have to reveal your dark and secret shame by admitting it.

The Fascinating Urban Legend of Proctor & Gamble & the Church of Satan

It’s easy to see how some urban legends get their start. The story of razor blades in Halloween candy, for example, was blown out of proportion after a father killed his son with poison-laced Halloween candy. But some urban legends seem to come out of nowhere, with no basis in anything. Such is the urban […]

Slashback! Ain’t No Party Like THE REDEEMER’s Bloody Class Reunion!

The more you delve into the slasher vaults, the more you realize just how many body-count horror films were released before John Carpenter changed the game forever with 1978’s HALLOWEEN (and as you’ve probably heard by now, JC’s finally returning to those essential roots). Most horror fans adore Bob Clark’s 1974 cult classic BLACK CHRISTMAS, […]

Like F. Scott Fitzgerald said, “The rich are different from you and me.” For instance, when they throw freaky parties, Audrey Hepburn and Salvador Dali show up instead of your dumbass friends. One of the aforementioned rich people, Marie-Hélène de Rothschild, threw a party in 1972 that was so different; it still inspires the dark […]

The book describes Michelle’s recovered memories of supposed Satanic ritual abuse as a child. The first such book to be released on the subject, MICHELLE REMEMBERS alleged that Michelle’s mother was part of a Satanic cult and forced her […]

The Five Scariest Real-Life Cults in Modern Times

Cults are terrifying. The idea that one person can convince dozens — or even hundreds — of people to take part in heinous crimes to serve some ludicrous idea that no normal person would consider rational makes my skin crawl. The following cults are all lesser-known than, say, the Manson Family or Jonestown, but are […]
