Valak is a demon that was made popular in the movie The Conjuring 2, Annabelle Creation and The Nun, where Valak was featured as an evil spirit that took the shape of a nun to haunt a convent in Romania, before it was brought to America and interacted with Lorraine Warren of the Warren paranormal investigators. But did you know that Valak is an actual goetic demon?

Valak was first mentioned in the demonology tome The Lesser Key of Solomon, as well as many other demonology transcripts that were written around that time. The Lesser Key of Solomon is actually a book of 72 demons that King Soloman apparently banished du...

I've always been a spiritual person. I was raised in a strictly Christian household, and while I don't practice a particular religion myself any more I am very open to hearing about the experiences and beliefs of the world and other cultures - especially if they are more naturalistic based.

As a vegan and an on-the-way environmentalist, I am trying to live in the best life I possibly can while utilising the Earth and its precious resources in a non-destructive way. Everything on this Earth has been put here for a reason, and I enjoy researching and discovering what they mean and how they are connected to the human race.

Losing one of your five senses - touch, sight, hearing, smell and taste - is a terrifying thought to many people, especially the ability to hear and speak as it is a huge basis of our forms of communications. Well, horror genres like to capitalise on some of our greatest fears, and even something simple like the ability to speak and make noise can be turned into a perfect weapon in the horror movie genre.

Here are some of the best horror movies that make the loss of a sense terrifying.

A Quiet Place

I watched A Quiet Place in the movie theatres, and it was so damn quite that I didn't want to eat my popcorn for fear of...

Salem, Massachusetts, is one of the most famous locations for occultists, Wiccans, and horror history lovers alike. Known for the infamous Salem Witch Trials, in which more than two hundred people were accused of witchcraft in 1692 and 1693, and twenty five people were executed during the hysteria of outing witches, Salem is said to be one of the most haunted places in America.

And nobody takes on their cloak of history like Salem.

A visit to Salem, Massachusetts, is on the bucket list of every witch lover, myself included. There are so many deliciously witchy places you can visit, and I've put together my very own l...

I watched the horror movie Hereditary recently for my previous article about the most intelligent horror movies made, and while I was researching for this article I stumbled across a lot of information about Paimon, a demon icon that is recognisable along the lines of Baphomet, Lillith, Adam, Eve, and the other religious history. So after Hereditary I thought I would read a little more into Paimon and figure out exactly who he is.

King Paimon isn't as ambiguous as Baphomet is and he is seen as being subservient to Lucifer and one of the nine kings of Hell or Goetia, specifically the King of the West. He is first mentione...

In the 1950's it was pretty common place to take your date to a drive in movie theatre to watch some kind of spooky horror flick in order to get your date so scared and horny that they will have sex with you. That's legitimate right?

But whether or not it actually was a common occurrence, there definitely seems to be some truth in that. Watching horror movies together gives you a more likely chance to stay together, and here's why.

It helps you de-stress

According to Multiple studies, watching horror regularly actually helps you de-stress in the long term, even if you find watching these kinds of horror movies quite stress...

Baphomet is a very well recognised icon when it comes to the occult - a depiction of a horned and winged goat adorned with estoric symbols. It has been publicized more recently in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, but it's also been popping up all over my social media news feeds. Because of this, I decided to take a dive into the history of this icon and see what the true meaning behind Baphomet really is.

Baphomet was first depicted as a deity that the Knights of Templar were accused of worshipping, due to appearing in a transcript for The Inquisition of the Knights Templar in 1307. The Knights of Templar were C...

Hollywood tours do it right, and they do it right for a reason. People want to see where their favourite movies were made, walk the streets their favourite characters walked, and do iconic things in the movies such as having a breakfast croissant outside Tiffany and Co in New York and visit the Hobbitshire while in New Zealand.

And horror buffs are no different.

They want to see where Alice got her head chopped off in Friday the 13th. They want to see where their favourite characters were slashed to ribbons, and be at the scene of a not-so-real grizzly murder. Well lucky for us horror fans who are keen to visit, there are...

Trigger warning: This article contains mention to suicide.

If anyone has seen the horror movie The Forest you may be well-versed in the general idea of Japan's infamous Suicide Forest - or the Sea of Trees as it is referred to - but you may not know much else about the haunting location. Japan is well known for it's dark and disturbing, it's beauty and culture, and there is just something about this forest that drags you in.

The Suicide Forest is specifically named Aokigahara and is located on the northwest flank of the famous Fuji Mountain and covers 30 square kilometers of hardened lava that has flowed from Mount Fuji i...
