I've been going by the evidence and I'm doin' my research and I'm going to find out what it is.
- Micah, Paranormal Activity
Remember the part of Paranormal Activity when Micah researches paranormal phenomena to work out what exactly is stalking his home?
Well, that book is not just a prop, it's totally real and available to buy for the likes of you and me. It's called A Picture Book of Devils, Demons and Witchcraft by Ernst and Johanna Lehner, published in 1971 by Dover Publications. It's available on Amazon for about $12, in case you're looking for a great Christmas -- or, more appropriately, Halloween -- present for a horror fan.
The book is full of awesome illustrations taken from centuries of depictions of demons, otherworldly creatures and devils from various cultures.
It's a really interesting read for anyone with even a passing interest in history, theology, horror movies... or tattoos! Seriously, if you're a fan of fine blackwork and are looking for your next piece, this book is inspirational.
Micah and Katie never quite work out the true nature of the demon stalking them -- which they give the rather un-scary moniker of 'Toby' -- but maybe you'd be more successful in your occult research...
