What’s Your Last Meal?

We all have our favorite foods. Maybe it’s some that your mother made when you were a kid or a dish at your favorite restaurant. And of course…a dessert to follow it up with! But what if it was the last thing you were ever going to eat? Now that I think about it – I’m not 100% sure exactly what I’d choose. If you can’t make up your mind either – here’s a list of what some famous killers had for their last meals:

Books

Books of Blood

You all know Clive Barker, but did you know that he wrote short stories? You’ve probably seen Hellraiser (all of them) and some of you may have even read the books. But sometimes you just need a little quick bedtime story. These really hit the scary spot…

Serial Killers

The Sons of Sam

I recently binge-watched The Sons of Sam: A Descent into Darkness on Netflix. If you haven’t already watched it, I recommend it. It’s a fascinating four-part documentary. If you’re looking for an in-depth documentary about David Berkowitz a/k/a The Son of Sam a/k/a/ the .44 Killer, this isn’t it. The first episode is a recap of the case, and full of actual news broadcasts and interviews. This show is about a journalist named Maury Terry, and how his obsession with Berkowitz and the theory that he didn’t act alone, basically ruined his life…

Books

Rosemary’s Baby

Rosemary’s Baby is going to mess with your head, freak you out, scare you, and keep you up at night. An absolutely amazing piece of psychological horror! The book or the movie, it doesn’t matter. They’re both amazing…

Misc

The Iron Maiden

The more I write about torture methods, the happier I am that I wasn’t alive when they were used. Today’s device is the Iron Maiden a/k/a the Nuremberg Virgin. The most famous version of it was built in Nuremberg, Germany, hence the name…

Is This You?

Look out horror fans, we’re being studied! Apparently, scientists and psychologists have decided to try and determine the types of people that enjoy being scared. I’m no genius or anything (if you could see all of my spelling errors as I write this, you’d totally agree), but as far as I’m concerned, you either like to be scared or you don’t. It’s as simple as that! But…

Authors

Carlton Mellick III

Carlton Mellick III is out of mind and you have to read his books!! His genre? That is an excellent question, my friends. Bizarro fiction, definitely. Horror comedy? Crazy-ass weird shit? Quite possibly those too…

Haunted Places

Lake Shawnee Amusement Park

Scooby-Doo – Where are you??? The Lake Shawnee Abandoned Amusement Park in Rock, West Virginia is right out of an episode of Scooby-Doo…if there were dead kids in cartoons, that is. It has a violent history that goes all the way back to the 1700s. And fun fact – it’s built on an ancient Native American burial ground!

Homicide

The Kobe School Killer

On the morning of May 27, 1997, in the port city of Kobe located on the Japanese island of Honshu, police got several calls from people passing the town’s junior high school about something that looked like a mannequin’s head laying in front of the gate. When police arrived they quickly realized that this was not a mannequin’s head, but the head of an 11-year-old mentally challenged boy named Jun Hase…
