    E100: Cursed Movies

    E100: Cursed Movies

    The idea of the cursed film has been around in some shape or form since the dawn of the medium. Some of the earliest examples of cursed movies include The Wizard of Oz, The Conqueror, and Rebel Without a Cause. In the 1970's and 80's, the popularity of the cursed movie urban legend exploded due to the release of horror films like The Exorcist, The Omen, and Poltergeist. Typical "cursed films" typically have a myriad of production issues, and many of the cast and crew are later suffer from serious injuries or expected and untimely deaths. In this episode, we take a look at a number of allegedly cursed movies including Poltergeist, The Omen, The Passion of the Christ, The Conqueror, The Exorcist, Atuk, and The Crow.

    E99: The Ant Hill Kids

    E99: The Ant Hill Kids

    The Ant Hill Kids are perhaps Canada's most famous cult, operating out of Quebec and Ontario throughout the late 1970's and 80's. Led by the charismatic Roch Theriault, the commune mostly kept to themselves, funding their alternative lifestyle by selling baked goods. Theriault claimed that he was a messenger of God, and warned his followers that the end times were approaching. He claimed that the Ant Hill Kids would ascend to heaven if they followed his command, but that the road to absolution would be marked by pain and intense challenges. What followed was nearly a decade of twisted violence, isolation, and manipulation that led to the deaths of two people, forever altering dozens of lives in the process. In this week's episode, we discuss the history of Roch Theriault and the Ant Hill Kids.

    E98: Ian Brady and Myra Hindley (The Moors Murders)

    The Moors Murders are some of the UK's all-time most gruesome murders, taking place from July 1963 to October 1965. The perpetrators of the Moors Murders were Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, a young couple obsessed with sadism and torture, whose sick fantasies quickly involved into the murders of five young Britons. By the end of their twisted crime spree, Brady and Hindley were England's most hated couple, a status that would last two decades until the arrests of Fred and Rosemary West. In the final chapter of our Deadly Love series, we tackle the life and crimes of Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, the Moors Murderers.

    E97: Raymond Fernandez and Martha Beck (The Lonely Hearts Killers)

    E97: Raymond Fernandez and Martha Beck (The Lonely Hearts Killers)

    Raymond Fernandez and Martha Beck, the Lonely Hearts Killers, are one of America's most famous serial killer duos. The couple met in 1947, driving around the country to meet lonely older women. Today, the scam they committed is known as the lonely hearts scam - where the perpetrators gain the trust of a lonely (often widowed or unmarried) older woman with the objective of stealing money and jewelry from them, committing insurance fraud in their name, and sexually abusing them. Fernandez and Beck took the lonely hearts scam to new levels, murdering their victims to take them out of the equation so that they could move onto their next victim when the money inevitably ran dry. In the third part of our Deadly Love series, we take a look at the life and crimes of Raymond Fernandez and Martha Beck, the Lonely Hearts Killers.
