Scholars have consistently applied psychoanalytic models to representations of gender in early teen slasher films such as Black Christmas (1974), Halloween (1978) and Friday the 13th (1980) in order to claim that these were formulaic, excessively violent exploitation films, fashioned to satisfy the misogynist fantasies of teenage boys and grind house patrons. However, by examining the commercial logic, strategies and objectives of the American and Canadian independents that produced the films and the companies that distributed them in the US, Blood Money demonstrates that filmmakers and marketers actually went to extraordinary lengths to make early teen slashers attractive to female youth, to minimize displays of violence, gore and suffering and to invite comparisons to a wide range of post-classical Hollywood's biggest hits; including Love Story (1970), The Exorcist (1973), Saturday Night Fever (1977), Grease and Animal House (both 1978). Blood Money is a remarkable piece of scholarship that highlights the many forces that helped establish the teen slasher as a key component of the North American film industry's repertoire of youth-market product.

Organised crime in Australia is more reckless and more violent than ever before. Controlled by a new wave of gangland bosses, it has broken old taboos and formed alliances that would have once been unthinkable. So who now holds the power? There are the Middle Eastern gangs whose core business is drugs, the sale and stockpiling of dangerous weapons, extortion and large-scale fraud; the outlaw motorcycle gangs with their fortified club houses and amphetamine labs; and the Calabrian Mafia, always dangerous and opportunistic. Even more frightening, through the influence of radical Islam, organised crime and terrorism have begun to merge. Our jails are turning drug dealers and car thieves into holy warriors willing to kill indiscriminately for their cause. With the same meticulous research that made Smack Express required reading for anyone interested in organised crime, Clive Small and Tom Gilling take us deep into this new, dark and violent Australian underworld.

Many Christians are living in lack and not enough because they haven’t been properly taught the power of the sacrifice of Jesus as it concerns their wealthy inheritance in Christ Jesus. BLOOD MONEY; Understanding Covenant Wealth is a revelation and divine understanding of the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, the power that is available to us today and how every believer can take advantage of that sacrifice in establishing God’s covenant of wealth here on earth. Pastor Arome E. Tokula teaches that there are three primary areas of the believer’s redemption; redemption from sin, redemption from sickness and redemption from poverty. Many have enjoyed salvation and experienced deliverance from sin, addictions, sicknesses and pains but are yet to even know that the same sacrifice has provided them freedom from financial bondage. He raises a clarion call for believers to know how much MONEY and WEALTH are an intrinsic part of the finished works of Christ Jesus and how a consciousness of our BLOOD COVENANT with God through Jesus and the blessing upon the believer whose heart is circumcised can help them live in abundance even in this world’s system. He literally sets you on an inciting journey through the pages of this book to learn in simple terms profound truths. Some of the chapters include: The Glory and The Blood Three Kinds of Money The Ultimate Sacrifice for Wealth The Blessing The Passover and The Takeover Money in the Redemption
