Criminal Minds

The reaper showed up yet again on prime time in Omnivore 4.18, this time as the Boston reaper serial killer recap Omnivore

Death is the thirteenth card
In the AC Thoth Deck.

Death Card the Reaper and his sickle. The sword these anti-heroes/dark knights carry can be seen as the sword of wisdom from Sophia, lady in the lake, that give both mortality and great magical power to the carrier.

The Reaper
novelist Luke Sinclair retreats to a small town to finish writing his latest book REAPER. Are these murders being committed by a deranged fan or has Sinclair delved too deep into the savage killer within himself?

This movie theme is about breaking the seals to bring forth the Apocalypse with rosemary's baby/children of the corn themes.

I have seen this poster before -- >The Gate - i watched this years ago, about a family who finds a gateway to hell in their back yard, i think this was the movie where he got the eye in his hand?.

While googleing for a movie poster , i found this blog: Dark Side of the Sun: Conspiracy XX, where he mentions the movie "The Gate" along with a few others i have mention earlier like Jason & Blotched.

There was another Reaper release in 2005 - under Venom/Backwater:

Venom is also
Spider Man's anit/evil hero in SM3

Handle-down sickle; cf. the handle-up sickle symbol of Saturn

Reaper scythe- Odin and the Reaper Odin as this well-known symbol of death Romans identified Cronos with their god of agriculture, Saturn.

In Cronos the alchemist builds an extraordinary mechanism encapsulated into a small golden device. The invention, designed to convey eternal life to its owner. Jesus Gris & his daughter Aurora found hidden in a statue of an Arch Angel.

When opened, it painfully stabs whomever is holding it, but the wound brings youthful vigor and a vampire's need for blood. The device is relentlessly pursued by a dying tycoon, Dieter de la Guardia, whose nephew Angel, reluctant to see his uncle live a moment longer, must still do the old man's bidding. The nephew 'Angel' is played by Hell Boy Ron Perlman

Reaper TV series Sam Oliver that aids in sending wondering souls back to Hell. He serves as Satan's Bounty hunter. In S2E4 Devil takes Sam to the police station and introduces him to Morgan, whom he calls his son, to show him the rope. Both the sword/dagger & golden Beatles pop up in this tv series. - over view here - Sam uses the dagger to send the soul back to hell.
"This Week’s Soul: Boy was this week’s soul creepy. From his insistence of putting all his possessions in his mouth to taking gold coins (that turn into golden bugs) out of his mouth;"
Another Sam using a dagger- is our fri13/Supernatural superhero demon killer.

Father Time is often depicted with a sickle

The Start of the Slasher Horror Genre

The start of the slasher genre can officially be traced back to the seventies; the real start of the genre can perhaps actually be seen to have came with the release of 'Psycho' in 1960 though.

Remember the shower scene? 'Psycho' is not a slasher film, the shower scene surely shaped the future of the genre however and 'Psycho' truly is a classic pioneering horror film.

It actually features Jamie Lee Curtis mother Janet Leigh as main character Marion Crane. John Carpenter's 'Halloween' is heavily influenced by Hitchcock's 'Psycho', Carpenter even plucks the name Sam Loomis from 'Psycho' and uses it as the name of the doctor in his own film.

So 'Psycho' is very much the film to blame for the emergence of the slasher movie genre, it's not a slasher movie in itself but Norman Bates certainly has his slasher killer tendencies and was somewhat of a forerunner in the slasher killer scene. Norman Bates; the man that pioneered the movement.

Ascendant Power; The Mask (masculine) -Ego/Instinct

The Ascendant is the rising sun, they are interchangeable. It reflects your outward demeanor & to a great extent determines how the out side world looks at you. The Ascendant is what the world first sees in you, the impression you make. The sign that was rising over the eastern horizon at the time of your birth, the moment of independence existence. This is you consciousness. The Moon sign in astrology is the instinct, this is the inner you that only you can see. Call it your inter intuition, your subconscious. The ego =Sun /Instinct=moon. The earth plane is a mirror, or a reversed reflection of our true ego.
Everyone is a moon and has a dark side that he never shows to anyone-Sybil Leek.
Masks have been used since antiquity for both ceremonial and practical purposes.

The word "mask" came via French masque and either Italian maschera or Spanish máscara. Possible ancestors are Latin (not classical) mascus, masca = "ghost"; Hebrew masecha= "mask"; Arabic maskharah مَسْخَرَۃٌ = "jester", "man in masquerade", maskhara مَسْخَرَ = "he ridiculed, he mocked", masakha مَسَخَ = "he transfomed" wiki
Other slasher Flicks with same themes....

Se7en/ Saw/ The Burning/ Silence Of The Lambs/ Candyman /Hostel /STRANGELAND/ wrong turn / last house on the left/ Hills have eyes/ NATURAL BORN KILLERS (Bonny & Clude)/Maniac/Shocker /Jeeppers creepers/ the Burning /Scream/ Children of the Corn/ & the list goes on....

HellRaiser (opening a portal via the cube) would need a whole blog for itself - along with Nightmare Elm St.
( there is probably stuff already out there on these.. will link to them soon)

Event Horizon
Through the wormhole & brought hell back

Horror movies usually fall under 5 categories. 1 zombies classics, 2 Slasher flicks, 3 vamp/warewolfs, 4 evil child"films supernatural" "phantasmagoric" & the new 5 "Torture Porn", or "Gornoraphy" (merging of worlds- male/fem) which IMO falls into its own. I admit it, i'm a huge horror fan, but that is just wrong!

These themes can be found in most child's cartoon/programming right up to the classic cult films.
