The Evil Dead

The 1981 ‘Sam Raimi’ directed classic of horror cinematography ‘The Evil Dead’ follows the story of a group of youths vacationing in a cabin, in an isolated woody area, who, to their later repentance, set a horde of Demonic spirits free from their trap.  Following which all manner of gruesome paranormal carnage ensues...

The movie ‘Constantine’, follows the adventures of ‘John Constantine’, as he attempts to make favor with God, and earn his way into Heaven, by exorcising, and banishing Demon back to hell.  Saving his soul from the eternal damnation brought upon him, by a suicide attempt in his youth.  Angels, Demon, Dragon breath, and screech beetles a’plenty.  In this comic-book inspired, big-budget Hollywood style horror.
The Exorcist

Paranormal Activity
