Its because Catholic Churches were the ones powerful enough to go against the witches uprising in europe back in 17th and 18th century.

Some of those witches came back to haunt them. and frankly they were the only ones with such raw power to go against demons head on... we were all gifted the power to cast out demons. they were the ones to had the balls to use that gift and. to see what we wont wanna see. to confront fear.

some of those horror movies are real life stories.. movies like conjuring... annabelle... the nun... insiduous... atticus institue. and many more. happened real life.

There is a lot of hidden things about Catholic church people don't know and they don't want people to know.

Read about crusades and if you watch most films that put their settings on crusades you will notice it is always roman Catholic Church they use and how their leaders are selfish and power hungry.
I believe there was a reason why some people break out to form the Anglican and pentecostal.

Simply a stereotype.

The Catholic church is more universal and highly acceptable than other mushroom churches. So events within it will have a more higher audience.

Finally, the Catholic church makes use of signs and symbols which are not found in other newer and mushroom churches. Things like the Crucifix, Holy Water, Blessed images, Monstrance, Eucharist, etc. The above named items and holy materials are seen as instrumental in fighting off Demons, Witches and warding of the Devil which are the main villains in a horror movie!

Mushroom? I like that as Reformation.

I have noticed that whenever there's a horror film that involves a church, it's always a catholic church. It's always one dark, big catholic church with reverend fathers and nuns.

I have seen over hundred horror films acted in the catholic church and it makes me wonder why always catholic? I once saw a horror movie acted inside the Vatican with dead bodies buried in secret graves inside the Covent. In fact, catholic church has become the standard church for acting high selling horror films.

They hardly use pentecostal churches or anglican. Is it because the catholic church is the most spiritual church? Is it because it's the most powerful and richest church?


The horror movies you refer are all produced and directed by Europeans and Americans and the theme of the movies is based on their history and culture. In European history, the Catholic church was very prominent, particular during the dark ages when Europeans were still essentially very superstitious. It was the Catholic church that started the Inquisition and promoted exorcism of demons from the possessed among all other odious and unjustifiable practises of that time.

If you watch Chinese made horror movies or the ones from Nigeria etc, you will notice that the Catholic church or any church (in some cases) don't even get a mention.

they are not. We feel they are shady because they are truly shady as hell..

but fact is. we dont want to know what they know. trust me. what they are covering up is for the better of everyone. or how would you feel if immediately you said Catholics are blind. i get angry and send a demon to wipe out your entire bloodline from the surface..


they banned 7 books of moses not for their benefits. but everybody who has read it became mad in under a week.
its a book that gave people the knowledge to talk to elements and make them do your will.

basically dark magic to some people but raw power to others.

if everyone is that powerful. we would all be dead. we have seen what power makes people do.

The Catholic church has a far older, far richer mythology than all the other Christian denominations extant in the Western World. This provides a rich mine for creative writers.

try and watch the behavior of Catholic members! them don't progress in life and always having one demonic procession to another.

Lol...catholics don't progress in life? I think the inverse is the case. Look at all the Christian Nations that are doing excellently well, a great majority of them are catholics. Even in Nigeria here, you'd see almost all catholic churches (no matter how remote the area is) have gigantic edifices with very large parking spaces (even at that, cars would still litter all around the roadside). Who built those churches? It's the successful parishioners that always contribute to build them and also contribute to the poor and less privileged around them.

Wherever there's a catholic church anywhere in the world, look around the environment or the locality....the church ALWAYS brings development. I don't think you know what you're saying

Do you even know that it is the same Catholic church that compiled the bible you're arguing about? And after that, interpreted it for use in various languages.The original manuscripts are still at the Vatican.
So...going by what you said, the "catholic priest" killed his fellow priests that compiled and interpreted the bible and as well started using that same bible in which it was against. Doesn't make much sense to me. I don't think you know what you're saying at all.

Am guessing it's because it's the oldest church on d planet. And since evil is ascribed to some old hoax or enchantment, it's only logical to use the old boys from Men in Black

The devil always goes after his main adversary, he has always tried to conquer the Catholic church because they are his main Headache. If he conquers the Catholic church then you know it is all finished. Even the boko haram in Nigeria chiefly targets Catholic churches in the north for bombings and extrajudicial killings.

https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-difference-between-the-Catholic-Church-and-the-Roman-Catholic-Church
In case you no get data to opne the link..here is a snippet..

Technically the “Catholic Church” is greater than the communion centering on the Bishop of Rome, better known as the Pope. Catholic just means universal, and the Roman church is just one part of that universal church.

The problem is, of course, that that Roman church calls itself the “Catholic Church”, implying that it is the same as the universal church, which even according to its own teachings is not true. Even Rome admits that other churches not within its own communion are part of the universal church and have valid sacraments. The most obvious example is the Orthodox Church. A lesser-known example is the Union of Utrecht of Old Catholic Churches in Europe.

Old Catholics and Anglicans thus tend to insist on calling the Roman communion the “Roman Catholic Church”, in order to emphasize that they too are part of that Catholic Church while not being under the jurisdiction of the Bishop of Rome. Some also call the universal church the “Church Catholic” to avoid confusion with the Roman Catholic Church.

Try reading the history of catholic in wikipedia then you will understand me more. The name catholic was first used in 110 AD which means universal when the church was one indivisible entity. The other orthodox church you are mentioning broke out from Rome. Anyway I get ur point though.
