There’s something fun and thrilling about a good spooky tale. Whether you are a child or an adult, those are the ones that your mind (whether you wish it to or not) will revisit over and over. Fairy tales are a good example of this, as most are quite dark in origin. They are full of wicked things lurking in the shadows, things which stalk about waiting for the right moment to seize and often feed upon those who unwittingly cross their path. The reason these stories are so delightfully dark...

Justice From Beyond

5/21/2020
When it comes to modern story-telling, it’s quite the over-used trope – the ‘who did it to me’ mystery, where the departed influences an investigation in order to reveal the details of their murder – bringing to justice the unsuspected killer. However, when it comes to folk lore and legends involving ghost stories, it is a theme which appears time and time again, a theme which is essentially as old as time. In fact, when it comes to such stories, it is almost unavoidable. It seems that...

Dead Ringer

Throughout history there have been an overwhelming number of people who have met the fate of being buried alive. It’s no surprise that taphophobia, the fear of being buried alive, is still something that creeps into our collective consciousness.

Strange Waters

There is no shortage of tales of haunted waters, of small patches, where the waters seem to be in a constant state of unrest, waters which seem eager to swallow up any vessel which crosses over.

Winter Solstice

12/9/2019

It was a time for magic and ritual, a time to balance out negative forces at play, and a time when protection was needed. In Western culture, many of our winter holiday traditions have origins in these magical solstice celebrations – especially those celebrated by the Celts and Vikings.

The Devil is In the Details

10/20/2019

The Spirit Photography of William Mumler

10/4/2019
There are many out there who have claimed to have captured a spirit in a photograph. In most cases the occurrence was completely unintended – while in other cases the person behind the camera has done so for that specific reason. Today, whenever we see a supposed spirit photograph, the spirit is either an orb, a wispy mist-like substance, or a light colored blob that is vaguely in a human like shape. The ghost photos we have today are entirely different than the spirit photos of the eighteen...
