Enter “The Dark Lord” – a review of the work of Peter Levenda

Originally posted on The Blog of Baphomet:

This book took me back to my early teens when I first came across the work of Kenny G. The Dark Lordstands squarely in the tradition of attractively produced, Thelema-centric, hyperbole-tastic, Typhonian literature. At first glance I wondered if this was to be a biography of Mr Grant (aka ‘The Slime Lord’) but in this case ‘The Dark Lord’ isn’t just a more polite epithet for Kenny (and no, it’s not a Voldemort or Peter Mandelson reference either). Instead The Dark Lord in question is the being that signifies that whole stellar-Set-Shaitan-Typhon antinomian spooky occult vibe.

In this book Peter Levenda takes us a on a grand tour of the interface between Crowley, Lovecraft and Grant, with supporting characters appearing in the form of Jack ‘butterfingers’ Parsons, Mike Bertiaux and Frater Achad (no mention of Soror Nema, women don’t get much of a look-in until we get…

Wer (2014) Mini Review

Originally posted on Tim's Film Reviews:

Here comes another mini review, this time an indie horror film is in my target, also related to werewolves. The film is currently out on VOD, it’s a kind of found footage horror film. But it does have a lot of none found footage scenes. On a none review topic boy does that werewolf guy look like Sébastien Chabal or as he’s nicknamed ‘The Cave Man’ in French Rugby.

I’ll go into much more detail below but give it a try, got trailers and images below. Check it all out and give me a like and a comment at the end.

Night Monster (1942)

Originally posted on Vintage45's Blog:

Despite the star billing of Bela Lugosi and Lionel Atwill, Lugosi doesn’t have much to do and Atwill even less. There’s lots of fog in the woods surrounding the Inkston Towers mansion. When the frogs stop croaking there’s something out there and people die.

Margaret Inkston calls Dr.Lynne Harper (Irene Hervey) to come out to the Towers. Her companion and housekeeper Sarah Judd is very upset about it. Servant Milly Carson quits. Too many strange things are going on there and she wants to report it to the local constable, Cap Beggs.

Laurie the chauffeur (Leif Erickson) drives Milly towards town. He stops and tries to come on to her. She gets out of the car and hitches a ride with Jed Harmon into town. Cap tells her she doesn’t have much info to go on and something has to happen before he can act. Even the murder of a…

Mel’s 5 Second Review: Dark House

Dark_House

A campy, scary good time. Jeffrey Combs, even after all these years, is still awesome! The effects aren’t all that great, the acting is pretty shaky overall, but the story is interesting and, best of all, it’s got that late 80’s, early 90’s charm. Who says camp is dead?? Hehe :-D A very fun 7.5/10.

This movie is currently streaming on Netflix. Enjoy! :-)

Gods of the Godless: A Discussion on H.P. Lovecraft wth S.T. Joshi

Interview by Henry Akeley

-

The shadow of Howard Phillips Lovecraft has loomed large over the culture of heavy metal right from the beginning, with Black Sabbath’s “Behind the Wall of Sleep” paying homage to the similarly titled short story, “Beyond the Wall of Sleep”, on the band’s eponymous debut album in 1970. Since then, a plethora of projects from every corner of dark music have drawn inspiration from Lovecraft, ranging from the likes of Metallica and Iron Maiden to obscurities such as Crematory (Swe) and Necrodeath.

Since his passing in 1937, perhaps nobody, at least in the past half-century, has done more to preserve the great American author’s legacy than S.T. Joshi. Having written numerous biographies on Lovecraft (including the two-volume “I Am Providence“, published…

True Detective (Season 1)

True DetectiveNo spoilers, continue without fear.

I’m sitting here behind my computer, sipping blueberry tea and wondering how the hell did I just watch eight episodes of True Detective back to back and yet, have no idea where to begin the discussion on this HBO’s newest hit series. That’s probably the most excruciating feelings a blogger can experience, that of having so much to say that making sense would probably be a far fetched illusion.
