Horror Classics

I Am pleased to announce that I have possessed another marvellous acquisition worthy of The Noctuary. While at the music shoppe purchasing a new VCR {in order to especially view Speak of The Devil; along with many of the media gems I have in My VHS collection which will probably never see the blindlight of day, including several rare recordings of interviews on shows that no longer exist; along with some classics that are rare finds besides}, I happened to look into a shelf where no-one else seems to peer, when I saw a very intruguing DVD package containing 8 Horror Classics: The Satanic Rites of Dracula {already had it on VHS - now replaced with enhanced technology}, The Terror, Mutant, Dead Men Walk, King of The Zombies, The Monster Maker, Lady Frankenstein, & Sisters of Death, with others in the series therein to be possessed soon. I detect a certain 'trend' in which what are deemed 'classics' {in the exceptional sense, not as necesarily pertaining to chronology}, in both the cinematic and musical genres, are being compiled into these convenient groupings, where one also derives twice the value of one's expenditure - I like it! Despite the disposable nature of current society, this does benefit the Satanist in many ways.

Then off to the fragrant Coffee Shoppe for another one of those potent caffeine-laden concoctions likened a shake. After spending a bit of time there for pleasant conversation and rumination, it was off in search of the perfect frame for a certain document I recently received, and what did I find also, but a calendar for Mother Satan I know she will appreciate - cathedral architecture from The Home Land.

NLM 14

NLM 14Received My copy of Not Like Most #14 yesterday, and needless to say, it is yet another superb release from Magister Paradise, done with class and style. Speaking of Classical, an essay herein entitled "Classical Music: The Devil's Playground" expounded by LeRue Delashay {Satanic Composer Diablere} heads off the issue, followed by "The Misanthrope's Survival Guide" {all of which is already personally and pleasantly implemented}; a thuroughly interesting interview with esteemed Magister Nemo, Founder of The Temple of The Vampire - members will not want to miss this one!; "The Golden Age" {'...of Horror!' - DB} follows, whose evocative timing is perfect, and speaks to the current dis-hibernation and awakening of the silver screen, which is a most pleasing development; a hilarious inclusion from the "bizarre world and strange weirdness" of Professor Sinister entitled "The Library of Secrets", which relates some of the more both far-fetched and plausible contraptions throughout sexual medical history {which seems to be rather large on anti-rape devices - which is understandable, considering the times, in which women were seen as property, and whose deflowerment by another man could mean humilation and the damaged reputation of the man} including a "penis trap" and "female securiy device"; a piece on the shock value of Satanism by Shiva Rodriguez; "America, Where Are You?" by Rev. Herbert Paulis; "Hymn to Belphegor" by Adan Flores, which is an infernally-inspired relation; a fine and agreeable addition "Indulgence: Fine-tune it or Die" by David Allan White {where did he go?}; "Absolute Human Companion" by Mgr. Paradise - an elaboration on Artificial Human Companions by ASLV, their crystallization and ever-perfecting intigation; and another classic piece on Paganini by Mr. Delashay named "The Devil's Hands" - these are great perspectives on these composers who were more often than not in league with Dark Forces themselves, thus inspired by The Daemon within.

"Mediabolica" comprises the multi-media review section, with reviews of The Devil's Diary V, and an inclusion of My review of Magus Gilmore's Threnody For Humanity. \,,/ Two Horns up to Magister Paradise!
