Presumed Serial Poisoner, Mary Ann Cotton

A poor working-class widow, Mary Ann Cotton has passed into history as a vicious serial poisoner, mercilessly killing her loved ones for financial gain.  She was vilified in the press most likely because of her station in life (as were more modern judicial victims, the early 1900s' Martha Rendell and the 1980s' Lindy Chamberlain of "the dingo ate my baby" infamy). Mary Ann's story, however, upon closer inspection may prove to be completely false; her execution may in fact have been one of history's more shameful miscarriages of justice.

Movie Review: The Amazing Spider-Man 3D

The Amazing Spider-Man is available in both 2D and 3D films. The 3D version was the one watched. This isn't a sequel to any of the previous three Spider-Man films starring Tobey Maguire and directed by Sam Raimi, but is instead a reboot of the series. There was originally a Spider-Man 4 and possibly 5 planned, but it/they were cancelled due to disagreements between Sam Raimi and Sony resulting in the reboot being made instead.

Moonlight Murders & The Town That Dreaded Sundown

Silvery, cold moonlight and night conspire to create an eerie sense of foreboding and terror.  For the night stalkers of the world – the serial killers, the sexual predators – a moonlit night provides just enough illumination to see the prey, but not so much light that the victim can easily identify the assailant. Presuming the victim remains alive, of course.

Weeping and Bleeding Religious Statues - Miracles or Monkeyshines?

Religious statues, particularly those of The Blessed Virgin Mary, have been the reported source of miracles over the centuries. Many times these statues weep tears and sometimes blood. Unfortunately, the materials of which they are formed and human chicanery combine to create fraud; none of these miraculous paranormal "cryings" have ever been proven as supernatural.

Epic Fail: Children's Crusades

Two bizarre and concurrent crusades left German and France in 1212, headed for the Holy Land. What made them strange is they comprised only children, who thought their innocence and piety would convert the Muslims holding Jerusalem to Christianity. They failed miserably -- most were kidnapped and sold into slavery and prostitution, never seen again.
