Sabbath Assembly This Sunday @ The Cinefamily

With so much Manson talk this month, post-hippie cult hucksters have been on my mind. I've been revisiting some of my Family, Source and Alamo books & LPs and really steeping in just what a mindfuck of time it was in California back in the 70's. Ellroy's first book, Killer On The Road, does a nice job of getting across the general malaise of the era, although it's a graphic & somewhat tedious read. 

One of the more notorious cults of the time was the Process Church. Formed by "Suppressive Persons" and former Scientologists Robert DeGrimston & Mary Anne Maclean, the Church came from an all-is-one philosophy not too far removed from some of Charlie's shtick. Mixing Satanic & Christian imagery, their rituals made them easy targets, and surely helped investigators link them to the Family and Son of Sam, albeit inacurately. Feral House has a new book out that attempts to piece together the real story of the Process and is presenting a recreation of one of their rituals live at the Silent Movie Theatre.

Giallo en Espanol "Por Fin"

Posted by Mr. Chadwick, August 24, 2008 12:00pm | Post a Comment
Esto es nuestro nuevo vidéo, para la canción Por Fin, que viéne en la edición 1.2 de nuestra serie de 12” EPs titulado isolated incidents.
 
Enfocado en cinta de 16” por Jason Tosta y Steve Carter, y dirigido por Sukho Lee. Directamente inspirado por la cinema Italiana giallo de los 70s (Argento, Bava, etc.) y tomando mucho del lecho de muerte en el hospital de la película Autopsy. Para una versión más clara, visita nuestra website. Es un poco sangrienta, por eso sí no te gusta eso, omitélo.

(Somewhat bloody-- if that's not your thing, skip it.)
