Latoya Ammons, Indiana Mother, Claims Demon Possession, Authorities Corroborate
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Demons, spirit possession, haunted houses...This isn't the typical purview of the Department of Child Services. But when Indiana mother Latoya Ammons reported that she and her three children had been possessed by demons, local authorities stepped in to investigate. What they found was actually quite surprising. Over the course of investigations that included police questioning, hospital visits and psychiatric evaluations, several authorities confirmed there was something unusual about the Ammons' case. "Twenty years, and I've never heard anything like that in my life. I was scared myself when I walked into the room." These are the words of Dr. Geoffrey Onyeukwu, the family physician who evaluated Ammons and her three children. He spoke with the Indianapolis Star about his "bizarre" encounters with the Ammons. The family came in complaining of 'demon possession,' which they said involved hearing voices, seeing wet footprints in their house where no one had walked and even levit ...

“The Dictator” movie review
Blast Magazine - almost 5 years
3 out of 4 stars Let’s get this out of the way. Sacha Baron Cohen exploded onto the feature film scene with “Borat” in 2006. “Bruno” quickly followed. Both movies combined the pseudo-documentary and mockumentary styles–along with a lot of potty mouth—to great effect. Both movies featured an odd and uninitiated foreigner coming to America to discover its wonders while at the same time exposing the unseemly side of many of its citizens—a sort of picaresque for the modern age. “Borat” was the more successful of the two, largely because Bruno was a rehash of the first movie with a lot more crudeness and staged scenes. At first glance, “The Dictator,” which is the third film to combine the irreverence of Cohen and director Larry Charles, would seem to be the same gambit. A foreigner who has no internal censor winds up in America and must make his way with the aide of every masturbation and ethnic joke in the book. What’s different is that “The Dictator” is entirely fictional. There ar ...
