This 3-hour documentary is about a horrific incident that happened on the night of 23rd June 1993. Lorena Bobbitt had cut off his husband’s penis while he was sleeping and fled the apartment with the organ in one hand and the knife in another. She threw away the penis from her window and called the police to tell them where she tossed it. By this time, John Bobbitt woke up his friend and asked to take him to the hospital. The doctors successfully reattached his penis after a 9-hour surgery and restored it to almost its full function.

Interview with a cannibal

The title of this film is enough to nauseate any sane human! “Interview with a Cannibal” is 34 minutes documentary film where Issei Sagawa tells his horrifying tale to the viewers. He murdered an innocent Dutch woman named Renée Hartevelt just to eat her flesh. He spent three entire days eating different parts of the woman’s body, and a few bits were still present in his fridge when the police arrested him. However, Sagawa was declared unfit for trials due to some loopholes in the law and was sent to a psychiatric hospital. He was then released from the hospital and is now a free man.

Demon house

Zak Bagans, writer and director of this horror documentary, bought a haunted house in Gary, Indiana, without even visiting the site. He intended to work upon Ammon’s claims of demon possession in the house who lived in the house along with her three children and experienced it all. She said that their porch used to be full of hundreds of flies even amid the cold Dec temperatures. The family heard the footsteps in the basements and the doors used to creak open by themselves. The kids used to get possessed by the demons; their eyes protruded out, voice deepened, and they gave evil smiles. You can watch this eerie film and listen to the claims by this family yourself while witnessing the insides of the very house!
