We meet Rev. Cotton Marcus (Patrick Fabian) as he prepares for his final Exorcism, which he has invited a documentary crew to film. Although Marcus has been preforming exorcisms for years, to him it is only that-a performance. In his grandiose documented exit from supernatural lifestyle, he gives up his “tricks of the trade,” including a rigged smoking crucifix and nine volt batteries attached to rings. Although he does not believe that demons can possess a human he sure puts on a show for the families of spiritual victims. But has the good reverend been jaded? After his last exorcism has been completed things still seem a bit off in the home of the Sweetzers. The crew returns to find that maybe this family isn’t so “sweet.” Oh yeah, I went there.
Possession or Mental Disorder?

The streets of Orange County are quiet and sullen tonight as a surviving tribe of local transients band together to reflect on the events of the past few weeks. A dark hooded figure has been stalking and brutally killing homeless men in the area. He has already claimed the lives of three men using a knife to stab them while they are sleeping.
The first victim, James Patrick Mcgillivay, 53, was stabbed outside the Palencia Shopping Mall on December 20th. The next victim, 42 year old Lloyd Middaugh, was found in a riverbed on an Anaheim trail about a week later. Then the following Friday, Paulus Cornelius Smit, 42, was found dead at the bottom of a stairwell outside the library in Yorba Linda.

(Yes more subtitles, get over it! The oversea market is really putting out some quality work and I refuse to watch foreign films in anything but their native language).
The Japanese Yakuza have terrorized Japanese business men and committed true acts of horror for centuries while trying to advance their family and well, let’s be honest to make money. But I’m sure nothing can top the sadomasochistic actions Yakuza enforcer “Kakihara” takes while trying to find out what happened to his boss/crime lord Anjo.
Anjo disappeared one night, well most of him anyways, while he was enjoying the company of one of the many prostitutes in the area. Leaving behind only a room with the walls covered in blood and three million yen missing along with him. Anjo’s faithful enforcer … Read More »
A decades long tradition has seemingly come to an end when a mysterious man known only as the “Poe Toaster” failed to show up to pay tribute to Edgar Allen Poe on his birthday. The third year of his absence has come and gone and the hopeful fans have been let down for the last time. Among them, Poe House and Museum curator Jeff Jerome. The museum, established in 1922, holds the largest collection of books, letters, memorabilia, and personal belongings of the master himself.
Curator Mourns No Show Toaster
“It’s over with,” Jeff said wearily. “It will probably hit me later, but I’m too tired not to feel anything else.” Jerome has kept a vigil for the toaster since 1978 and has since gathered a dedicated crowd of followers. The visits started sometime in the 1940’s by an anonymous man said … Read More »
