E03 Apostle of Illusions

In this episode, we briefly discuss two great horror films involving insidious cults. The films in question are 2018's Apostle and 1995's Lord of Illusions. I personally love these two films and feel that there is ample fodder for use in one's RPGs.

E02 The Scarlet Gospels by Clive Barker

Hey, everyone.

In this episode, we talk about Clive Barker's 2015 novel The Scarlet Gospels. This was the long-awaited story of the clash between Barker's occult detective, Harry D'Amour, and Pinhead of Hellraiser and Hellbound Heart fame. We go over a number of things from the book that I thought would make great fodder for our horror roleplaying games. I hope you enjoy it.

Please feel free to leave me feedback. I can be reached on Twitter at @mrsipspodcast and on Gmail at

Until next time,

Happy Gaming!
