Since its publication earlier this month, Andrew Pyper’s The Demonologist has garnered mad praise from both fiction bloggers and fellow genre authors. His trim little novel––about a college professor convinced that a demon has abducted his daughter––has been repeatedly heralded as one of the more frightening reads to come down the pike. And while it has its moments, be warned, the potency of the scares may depend on the reader’s willingness to go along with a few moments of Satanic silliness.
Canadian author Pyper has been a bestselling novelist for years (Lost Girls, The Killing Circle, The Wildfire Season), but he has yet to become a household name here in the States. Perhaps the building buzz behind The Demonologist will be enough to shove him face-first into the horror limelight.
The Demonologist was released by Simon and Schuster on March 5. Read on for the full review. READ MORE

After a pretty fantastic 70s opening credit sequence, Satan’s Slave (aka Evil Heritage) jumps right into a satanic ritual involving a naked chick and some masked dudes. Clearly there is something evil afoot, as the girl’s eyes turn red, the men running the show wear masks that look like Star Wars creatures. The film then continues down a long, dark, path into the weird and culty, filled to the brim with enough boobs, blood, and 70′s bush to keep even the loneliest of souls happy. READ MORE
A video entitled “Exposing Metal Bands (satanic illuminati) PART 1″ from user AprilAndWayneShow has been slowly gaining interest on YouTube (as of this posting, the video has over 70k views). The video takes several metal bands, including Whitechapel, Veil of Maya, Suicide Silence, and more, and “proves” that their music, their visuals, and their lyrics all promote the worship of Satan and steer people away from the one true religion: Christianity.
Rife with spelling and grammar errors, the video and the “proof” is full of holes. For instance, in trying to convince the viewer that the musicians are possessed by the Devil, the video uses quotes directly from musicians such as “…It’s like a mysterious energy that comes from the metaphysical plane and into my body. It’s almost like being a medium…” (Marc Storace of Krokus) or, “…I’ve always considered tha there was some way where we were able to channel energy, and that energy was able to be, from another source, if you like, like a higher power or something, that was actually doing the work.” (Bill Ward of Black Sabbath).
Notice that neither of these quotes discusses whether it is God or Satan that is the “energy”. It’s simply the fact that these are metal musicians that makes them inherently evil.
The joke of a video can be seen below along with another video that, for as amusing as it is, is also very applicable in this situation. READ MORE
