‘Cannibal Cop’ Pens Disturbing and Graphic Horror Novel

A former NYPD officer who was branded the “cannibal cop” after allegedly plotting to kidnap, kill and eat women has penned an “extremely violent” horror novel that explores themes similar to those that landed him behind bars.

Gilberto Valle spent 21 months in prison on charges that he schemed to abduct, slaughter and dine on young women after his then-wife found disturbing photos and records of chats on their shared computer in 2012.

Valle’s conviction was overturned in 2014 by Manhattan Federal Court Judge Paul Gardephe, who said the prosecution lacked hard evidence and that “no real-world, non-internet based steps were ever taken to kidnap anyone.”

But Valle was fired from the NYPD after his conviction and the infamous moniker has followed him ever since.

“Even though I’ve been completely exonerated, all this stuff about ‘Cannibal Cop’ is still there,” Valle, 33, told the New York Daily News

Still not over Halloween but you want to celebrate the holidays? Just merge the two! There are plenty of scary holiday movies to get you in the mood to wrap presents AND be spooked. And don’t forget to tune into the next season of Homicide For The Holidays, Saturday, November 25 at 6/5c on Oxygen.

 

 

1. Black Christmas, 1974

Believed to be one of the very first slasher films and the inspiration behind Halloween, this horror cult-classic follows a group of sorority sisters who are stalked and murdered by a murderer hiding in their attic. To make things even scarier, the premise is based on an urban legend combined with true crime: a string of killings that happened in Montreal. A remake with the same name was made in 2006.

Death by Festival Brings the Horror and Metal for a Good Cause

Scaring is caring. When the inaugural Death By Festival splatters the walls and shakes the foundations at the North Door this weekend, this hybrid horror film/heavy music festival will raise funds for Austin Pets Alive! and the Greater Houston Community Foundation. But make no mistake, that big heart is still full of entertaining evil.

It will be a sealed room of mayhem, with 13 hours of ghoulish cinematic creations, interwoven with music from the darker side. Fest co-founder Susie Winfield said, “We went back and forth on, ‘Do we even call this a festival? Is the concept of a festival that there are multiple things happening at the same time, at different places?’ We said, ‘You know what? It is a festival. It’s a full day.'”

There’s a historic resonance here. Back in 2012, local true-crime author Corey Mitchell announced he wanted to run a small fest fusing extreme films and extreme
