Product description


"The faces were disfigured: all sores, terrible teeth and mouths, and they were all biting, like biting towards me. It was like a vision from hell, worse than anything you could ever dream about, and the stench coming from them was terrible. They just rose up out of the ground, staring at me, trying to attack me - but they couldn't because they had no bodies that I could see. Just the heads. I'll never forget them. I thought I was going to die at that moment. I was calling out to my wife and Jim and Margaret. The heads were shrieking. It was as if they were waiting for Sherrin to kill me. Like I was some sort of offering that he was making to them." from "Mr Gant and the Neighbour from Hell". An innocent housewife, a callow young curate, a curious schoolboy, an amiable pensioner, and others like them. Ordinary people, leading ordinary lives in present-day Ireland. Until unwittingly, each opened a door into the unknown, and allowed strange forces to enter their lives. Through their shocking, true stories, "The Dark Sacrament" charts the terrifying struggle against the preternatural, battles that only ended with the intervention of that most valiant of churchmen - the exorcist.

From the Inside Flap

"Slowly, the ground in front of him began to open up, and the
boy found himself on the rim of an enormous cavern-like space.
Down in its depths he saw a throne. There was a figure seated upon it, but
Gary insists that 'it wasn't the Devil', that it was an entity that would
make itself known to him by and by.
But his attention at that moment was not on the throned figure, for from
all parts of that great cavern, beings with wings began to rise. He
identifies them as demons. They were flying up towards him: hundreds of
Even at that great distance, the boy could make out their eyes; all seemed
to be focused on him, as though a signal had been given and all were
launching themselves simultaneously into the attack."

- From the chapter "The Boy who Communes with Demons"
