The occult is many things to many people. For some, it is a path to enlightenment. Others find it a source of personal transformation. And still others consider it a doorway to the devil. While distinctions can be drawn and argued all day, what can't be argued is this: the occult is dangerous. It opens channels that are best left closed. It attracts entities that don't play by the rules. And it demands more - always more - than what was bargained for. These true-life accounts reveal the heartache and horror that can occur when people participate in the occult and, knowingly or not, release dark spirits into the human realm. Dabbler or devotee - it doesn't matter how deeply one is committed or involved. Once evil is unleashed, it treats everyone the same: hellishly.
