- Fifth Nail (5nchronicles.blogspot.com)
Ever wonder what goes on inside a serial killer’s head? Well here is a place to have that question answered. Fifth Nail is an online blog written by Joseph Edward Duncan. For those unfamiliar, Duncan is a notorious serial killer from Washington state who was found guilty for kidnapping and murdering whole families across two states. Currently serving life in prison, Duncan periodically has his last musings posted to this website. The blog has posts comparing himself and trials to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, but his posts aren’t exactly made from prison. Instead, Duncan mails letters to a third party who posts them on his website for him. Chilling and haunting in style, this site comes straight from the source of evil itself.
- Joy Of Satan (www.joyofsatan.org)
Operated by the High Priestess Maxine Dietrich, the Joy Of Satan is the ultimate in everything evil. Dedicated to the Dark Lord of Hell, this website has an enormous amount of information for everything from summoning demons, to creating sigils, to selling yourself and contacting Old Scratch himself. The website’s searing red text is in fact, Hell on the eyes for real, but once past it, you realize that you are dabbling into things that are supremely scary and putting your soul in jeopardy. This site you definitely should be entering at your own risk.
