Did you find Hurtaly interesting? If you are skilled in art, then why not draw a cheeky, comical or intriguing sketch of the Troublesome Hurtaly and send it to this website. You may find it peculiar to find such a being in the Bible or referenced to it. Well check out the Bible itself to find these beings there; Demons in the Book of Revelations, Goliath the Giant and Angels throughout. You can also watch Hexan (1922) - a great documentary film about Demons and the Church. Then theres the action packed Constantine (2005) and Season of the Witch (2011) filled with Witches, Angels and Demons. The more angelic Wings of Desire (1987) is a good Angel film too.
