And not to be overlooked, the seductive She-Devils, devilish temptresses personifying one of the seven deadly sins, adding an extra layer of diabolical allure to the infernal ensemble.

Something evil lurks in this town

A campy, dark  cautionary tale of a young man’s journey to hell and back.

DEADWOOD

My name is Ham, like the ham radio. I know about them woods where the boys went missing. When I was about 9 or 10… or was I 11? I can’t recollect much anymore But I do know me and my dog Nelly wandered in, Nelly picked up a scent by the old Baton River. Locals call it Styx, the River Styx. Saw some shadowy folks there. My momma always said that place attracts evil. And rightfully so…because it’s the Gateway to Hell. And Hell it was I saw standing by the river that night. A man beast, was it, about 8 foot tall, hairy looking thing with skinny goat legs and black horns. His eyes were glowing devil red like he was looking for a soul to steal. Man, kinda sounds like a Charlie Daniels band, don’t it. Anyway,  Nelly barked at that thing. The beast reached down and grabbed the poor girl’s tail and swung her around like a yo-yo until her tail broke off.
