“We Want You Gone…” The Living Hell of the Thornton Heath Poltergeist

16 November 2016 | Creepy places, November 2016, Poltergeist, Your Stories

In the early 1970s in Thornton Heath, England, a family was tormented by poltergeist phenomena that started one August night when they were woken in the middle of the night by a blaring bedside radio that had somehow turned itself on. Not only had the radio managed to turn itself on, but it had tuned itself to a foreign-language station. This was the beginning of a string of events that lasted nearly four years, terrifying one family to breaking point. A lampshade repeatedly was knocked to the floor by invisible hands. During the Christmas season of 1972, an ornament was hurled across the room, smashing into the husband’s forehead. As one member of the family sat down, the Christmas tree started to shake violently. The New Year didn’t bring any

Let Us In! The BEK Strike in Arkansas

14 November 2016 | Black Eyed Kids, Your Stories

This happened to me a few nights ago. I can’t explain it. But from my research, I think I had an encounter with the black-eyed kids you have been posting about. Please share my account with others. Last Sunday, I headed out to mow my lawn. In the front of my house I have a large garden. To my horror, someone had been by and stepped all over my roses. I was very angry and upset, but resolved myself to putting some work in and fixing my garden. The next day, I saw two kids walking down my road. Keep in mind my road has several houses, so we all know each other quite well. It’s a very nice community. These kids looked to be around thirteen or fourteen years

The Statue of Virgin Mary That Caught A Thief

11 November 2016 | Haunted locations, Your Stories

Periodically, we read about religious icons that display some supposed supernatural, paranormal or downright miraculous activity. Statues that cry tears, open their eyes, move around, smile…. you must have read at least one such story? However, I promise you that you have never heard about the statue of the Virgin Mary that caught a thief…. Visitors to the Church of St. James the Greater in the old town of Prague may not actually notice the severed arm hanging from a meat hook as they enter the Church. After all, it isn’t actually the sort of relic you would expect in a Church. However, there is a 400-year old mummified arm hanging from a meathook as you enter the Church if you look carefully. How did it get there? The story

Don’t Let Them In! The Black Eyed Kids Warning

10 November 2016 | Black Eyed Kids, Your Stories

This took place in Arizona in the mid-80’s. One late evening I woke up to loud knocks on the front door of my house. My husband was fast asleep, and I didn’t want to go down and open the door. It wasn’t normal for us to have late night visitors—so I did wonder if it was an accident of some type? I looked out of the window and I couldn’t see anything. It was pitch black outside. I woke my husband and asked him to go down and find out what was happening. He wasn’t very happy—but got up, put his robe on and went downstairs. I watched from the landing as he opened the door. Two children were standing there. Both looked young, and both looked like they were

The Dead Patient

02 November 2016 | Haunted locations, Your Stories

I had cancer when I was 4 yrs old. At that time, back in 1977, I had one of the rarest forms of cancer in kids. One day, I was wheeled to a room ready to go into surgery. As I was being wheeled in, I saw an old man next to me who had just come out of surgery. I asked him why he was there and he turned to me and said “Oh honey, I had surgery on my heart but I didn’t make it.” He assured me not to worry and told me that I was going to be fine and then he simply faded away. The nurse came in and I asked her “Where did the man go?” And she asked “What man honey? You are

Fear, Loathing and Terror Inside the Sanitarium

01 November 2016 | Ghost Hunting, Haunted locations

Have you ever been lonely? Ever wondered if you are truly alone? Sometimes the places we visit can be alive with activity—and today’s terrific terror is a place that must have felt lonely, and a place that still feels alive. It’s a sanitarium in Michigan where many lost their lives and, according to some people, it is a place where many patients still reside… beyond the grave. A 45,000 square foot institutional facility made up of a variety of brick buildings, and left in a state of neglect, complete with broken windows, sat in the middle of a well-kept neighborhood. This sanitarium was in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The neighbors hated walking past the building, not because the building was dilapidated—but because they say it gave off an aura. An aura that

31 October 2016 | G. Michael Vasey's Nightmare Corner, Haunted houses, Haunted locations

Back in the 16th century, the Pangerl family settled in the beautiful and mountainous Šumava region of Bohemia to farm, eventually building three farm buildings. Little did they know how their decision would eventually result in tragedy. A couple of hundred years later, an old and ugly woman built a shack on the edge of the village of Bradna and moved in. She was a fearsome creature, and it is said that she had teeth like millstones and was so ugly that the local folk avoided meeting her. Slowly, the inevitable rumors began. Strange chanting sounds were often heard by passersby and foul-smelling potions bubbled away in large earthenware pots. It wasn’t long before the villagers suspected the old crone of witchcraft and Satanism. Their fears were finally confirmed when

28 October 2016 | Audible Activity, Creepy places, Haunted houses, Haunted locations, October 2016

If you’re ever travelling through Alabama during your vacation time… you may find yourself face-to-face with the very essence of evil. A place called Sloss Furnaces. This dark, and grisly place, from 1882 to 1971, transformed coal and ore from surrounding acres into the hard steel that would pave the way for industy. From skyscrapers in New York to cars being built in Detroit, America came to rely on Sloss Furnaces for providing materials needed to produce thousands of products.  But this success came at a dangerously high price… In the early 1900’s, James “Slag” Wormwood, was foreman of the “Graveyard Shift”, the period between sunset and sunrise, where a crew of nearly one hundred and fifty workers toiled to keep the furnace fed. During the summer months, temperatures throughout
