Synopsis for "Confessional"
John runs into a priest who tried to fellate him as a young boy. He follows the man into a church to confront him and the man tells him of the time he had met Lucifer and heard the Devil's confession. This caused him to burn down his church and commit some killings that he was never linked to. After John had gotten away from him he was committed to a mental institution where every night for twenty years the Devil would repeat his confession to him. John asks him what the confession was and the priest holds two pencils to his eyes and headbutts the pew in front of him. John leaves the church, realizing it was a warning from Satan who knew that the man would encounter John and that some day, John also, would hear the confession of Lucifer.
