The Black House VR: Main Ritual Chamber

The Black House VR Campaign Launched!

“It’s said that the Devil is in the details. Enki has proven that he knows the Devil, and he certainly is a man of details.

Happy Halloween from The Black House

HAPPY HALLOWEEN FROM THE BLACK HOUSE!

Halloween is a favored holiday for many Satanists. We enjoy it as a time for viewing favorite spooky films—the immortal monsters Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man often as presented by Universal or Hammer, or some of the ghostly classics such as THE HAUNTING, THE DEVIL’S BACKBONE, THE INNOCENTS. It may serve as the night one evokes the thrill of “fun fear” by experiencing local “haunted attractions,” be they darkly majestic or simply cobbled together with a sense of spooky fun. It has long been an occasion for wearing masks and costumes that might be sinister, amusing, heroic, or seductive—diabolically revealing […]

CALIFORNIA INFERNAL—AVAILABLE FROM JD HOLMES The German paparazzo Walter Fischer lived and worked in California in the late 1950s and 1960s. During this period, he documented the glamour, and, yes, the weirdness of the time and place for a multitude of international magazines.

He was also privy to, and photographed, many of the events inside LaVey’s “Black House” in San Francisco. This new book from Edda […]
