976-EVIL is a 1988 USA comedy horror by Robert Englund.
Starring Stephen Geoffreys, Patrick O'Bryan and Sandy Dennis. BBFC link IMDb
A UK version was cut by the BBFC for 1988 18 rated cinema release and the follow up 1989 VHS. The 1991 VHS and 2002 were pre-cut for an 18 rating. A shorter version was released in the US with an R rating but is generally noted as uncut. There is also a longer TV version but the extra material doesn't add anything.

Promotional Material

Director Robert Englund (the iconic Freddy Krueger from the Nightmare on Elm Street series) dials up a gothic tale of high-tech horror in 976-EVIL .

High school underdog Hoax ( Stephen Geoffreys - Fright Night ) fills up the idle hours in his seedy little hometown fending off the local leather-jacketed thugs, avoiding his overbearing mother ( Sandy Dennis ) and dreaming of a date with trailer park temptress Suzie ( Lezlie Deane ), But his quietly desperate life takes a terrifying turn when his cousin introduces him to an unusual new hobby -- phoning in for his "horrorscope". Hoax is hooked up with a compellingly hideous demonic force that slowly begins to overtake his entire life and now there's more than just a phone bill to pay for anyone who ever dared cross "the neighbourhood nerd".

Co-written by Brian Helgeland ( L.A. Confidential, Mystic River ) and featuring incredibly practical effects work from Robert Kurtzman and Howard Berger , Eureka Classics is proud to present 976-EVIL on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK.

Wrong type of belief...

Nigerian musician is given a death sentence for a song that praises a cult leader


Link Here10th August 2020
A musician in Nigeria's northern state of Kano has been sentenced to death by hanging for supposedly blaspheming against the religious character Muhammad.

A Sharia court claimed that Yahaya Sharif-Aminu, was guilty of committing blasphemy for a song he circulated via WhatsApp in March.

The singer who is currently in detention, had gone into hiding after he composed the song. Protestors had burnt down his family home and gathered outside the headquarters of the Islamic police, known as the Hisbah, demanding action against him.

The song was controversial as it praised an imam from the Tijaniya Muslim brotherhood which appears to be a cult with beliefs that disagree with more orthodox islam.

The leader of the protesters that called for the musician's arrest in March, Idris Ibrahim, told the BBC that the judgement will serve as a warning to others contemplating toeing Yahaya's path.

Yahaya Sharif-Aminu is able to appeal against the sentence.
