I'd also like to say that this story is extremely horrifying the way it really happened, so I wonder why it is that the numerous movies about the killings which claim to be "Based on a true story" are all so wildly different than the real true story. These movies are insulting to anyone who knows the real truth. Should anyone ever make a movie that ACCURATELY depicts the real story of the Matamoros Cult Killings, it would be far scarier than ANY so called horror movie ever made.
Cauldron of Blood is, beyond a true crime book, a study in pogonology, or the study of evil. The subject of that study is the principal perpetrator, an occultist and psychopath by the name of Adolfo Constanzo. Having read quite a bit on psychopathy myself, I quickly recognized Constanzo as a psychopath, although I don't recall that word ever coming up in the book. I perceive that Mr. Schutze casts a wary eye on psychology, as I do. Often, the very terms and concepts of psychology can be used to mask horrific defects and evils in people. And also often, people use this ruse to mask their worst faults from themselves. However, Constanzo never perceived himself as a psychopath. His mother, being a witch herself, encouraged him to view himself as someone special--someone chosen--The Great Night. The Great Night, or Nanigo, is a particularly evil type of sorcerer who has no soul. Being someone without a soul means he cannot have remorse or regrets. Without a soul to make him think twice about anything, The Great Night is capable of anything.Read more ›
