Cryptic Studies (The Old Testament Part I -Introduction to the Old Testament)

The Old Testament.  What is it?  Does it still matter?  To some Christians yes and to others no.  Some Christians even hate the title of the Old Testament as much as the Jewish people do.   Reason being?  They feel that the title “Old Testament” means that the book and it’s teachings are frankly, out […]

Blood and Black Lace (1964 Full Film)

Blood and Black Lace.  Or as I like to call it.  A really great freaking film!  Others would call it Six Women for the Murderer.  Blood and Black Lace is definitely a much cooler title though. Quite fitting for a legendary film such as this imported from Italy.  It was directed by Mario Bava and […]
