No formal government or organized infrastructure existed in this fourth world country governed by warlords and their armed bands of gunmen.

The door was not locked, and opened easily. He switched on the light, and Richard followed him into the room. Nella lay on the bed. She had on the nightdress she had been lent, but the bedclothes had been pulled halfway down. Her head was twisted back grotesquely. Her mouth gaped open and her tongue had been cut out. It had been carefully placed in the valley between her naked breasts. The Duke de Richleau and his friends had faced many dangers in Russia, Spain and Nazi Germany. Now, a new and unexpected menace confronts them: the fourth member of their group, Rex van Ryn, is missing – and he has made off with more than a million dollars from the Buenos Aires branch of his family bank. Behind the conventional courtesy of Argentinian society lies a conspiracy of terror and silence – and a trail that leads straight to the Devil himself . . .

The Doorway to Heaven

I would like to make quite clear that in my opinion, Hell: The Doorway to Heaven has nothing to do with 'religion'. I mention this because over a period of 30 days in 2002, I received a set of 'channeled' lessons from Jesus (this is my belief, you will decide for yourself) and in no uncertain terms he calls for peace. In fact, it was more than channeled for he literally did take my hand and led me to the Promised Land. This is the first part of the book: Revelations. The second part is how I believed I was in Hell on Earth and the insanity that ensued from that, my humble story — the belief in the Anti-Christ, and indeed the actions of one. Asking for help in the depths of my Hell and how he came to me. Part three, the arrogance of guilt, is the four plus years, coming to terms with this, the insanity, that the words that Jesus gave me, has helped to dispel and the mistakes learnt from applying his words. It is a book about true forgiveness — true innocence and unconditional love. It is a promise, that all of us —yes all of us— are children of God (in whatever way you perceive God) and therefore will always be in 'Heaven' and therefore can be in Heaven on Earth if you chose. For it is yours.

Jesus Christ is not a human man, Jesus Christ is a deity. He can transform himself into anything. Jesus Christ and his angels can make human beings experience ectoplasm and can possess you in broad daylight and at night. Any spirit or deity that can shift-shape himself into anything like a fog, smoke, fire, clouds, insects, people or animals is considered not human, suspicious, unknown, scary, sneaky, secretive, and evil.

Passport to Hell

Author: Robin Hyde

Publisher: Auckland University Press

ISBN: 1869405242

Category: Fiction

Page: 344

Passport to Hell is the story of James Douglas Stark—Starkie—and his war. Journalist and novelist Robin Hyde came across Starkie while reporting in Mt Eden Gaol in the 1930s and immediately knew she had to write his 'queer true terrible story'. The result was greeted by John A. Lee, war veteran, author and politician, as 'the most important New Zealand war book yet published'. Born in Southland and finding himself in early trouble with the law, the young Starkie tricked his way into a draft in 1914 by means of a subterfuge involving whisky and tea. In his subsequent chequered career in Egypt, Gallipoli, Armentières, the Somme, Ypres, he showed himself 'a soldier and not a soldier', with a 'contempt of danger and discipline alike'. Hyde took the raw horrors, respites and reversals of Starkie's experiences and composed a work of literature much greater than a mere documentary of war. She portrays a man carousing in the brothels of Cairo and the estaminets of Flanders; looting a dead man's money-belt and filching beer from the Tommies; attempting to shoot a sergeant through a lavatory door in a haze of absinthe, yet carrying his wounded captain back across No Man's Land; a man recommended for the V.C. and honoured for his bravery - but also subject to nine court martials. It is a portrait of a singular individual - 'something of a visionary', in Hyde's words - who has also been described as the quintessential New Zealand soldier. And against the contradictory elements of Starkie's character, Hyde shows a war machine that preaches 'Thalt shall do no murder' one moment and sends men over the top the following day to kill. Robin Hyde was one of New Zealand's true literary trailblazers, and in this book she redefined the parameters of novel and memoir. In its psychological acuity and emotional depth, Passport to Hell is one of the finest war books we have. Published to mark the centenary of this quintessential New Zealand war story, this newly reset edition includes Hyde's final authorized text from 1937 and an introduction and notes by D. I. B. Smith.

American Cinema of the 1930s

Themes and Variations

Probably no decade saw as many changes in the Hollywood film industry and its product as the 1930s did. At the beginning of the decade, the industry was still struggling with the transition to talking pictures. Gangster films and naughty comedies starring Mae West were popular in urban areas, but aroused threats of censorship in the heartland. Whether the film business could survive the economic effects of the Crash was up in the air. By 1939, popularly called "Hollywood's Greatest Year," films like Gone With the Wind and The Wizard of Oz used both color and sound to spectacular effect, and remain American icons today. The "mature oligopoly" that was the studio system had not only weathered the Depression and become part of mainstream culture through the establishment and enforcement of the Production Code, it was a well-oiled, vertically integrated industrial powerhouse. The ten original essays in American Cinema of the 1930s focus on sixty diverse films of the decade, including Dracula, The Public Enemy, Trouble in Paradise, 42nd Street, King Kong, Imitation of Life, The Adventures of Robin Hood, Swing Time, Angels with Dirty Faces, Nothing Sacred, Jezebel, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, and Stagecoach .

There is no cinema with such effect as that of the hallucinatory Italian horror film. From Riccardo Freda’s I Vampiri in 1956 to Il Cartaio in 2004, this work recounts the origins of the genre, celebrates at length ten of its auteurs, and discusses the noteworthy films of many others associated with the genre. The directors discussed in detail are Dario Argento, Lamberto Bava, Mario Bava, Ruggero Deodato, Lucio Fulci, Umberto Lenzi, Antonio Margheriti, Aristide Massaccesi, Bruno Mattei, and Michele Soavi. Each chapter includes a biography, a detailed career account, discussion of influences both literary and cinematic, commentary on the films, with plots and production details, and an exhaustive filmography. A second section contains short discussions and selected filmographies of other important horror directors. The work concludes with a chapter on the future of Italian horror and an appendix of important horror films by directors other than the 50 profiled. Stills, posters, and behind-the-scenes shots illustrate the book.
