Cemeteries At Night

Anyone who has sneaked into a cemetery at night knows that is a thing of terror and equally as much a thing of exquisite beauty. Even in daytime, cemeteries are like memorial parks, still and contemplative, well-manicured and unhurried. But, at night, they become a strange black and white world in which the headstones are the only thing visible in the dimmest of moonlight. In fact, cemeteries real character comes out at night.

Horror in the Clouds by Scott Shoyer

I have been following Scott Shoyer's amazing horror review site, Anything Horror for many years. He is a most talented author and also extremely knowledgeable about the horror genre. I'm excited to share his latest release - 

Horror Movies With an Autumn Feel

You know you want it. You've had enough heat and humidity and are glad to be releasing the kids back to school soon. Now, you're getting that nesting instinct to make soups and chili, sip hot cocoa, watch the leaves turn, and get creeped out by the Halloween season. So, go for it! Get your spook on with autumn-themed horror movies!

Designing Creepy Gardens

I am more obsessed with the outside of the home than the inside and I also love gothic atmosphere. There are a lot of wonderful ways to add creepiness, mystery, magic and frights to a garden.

What Unexplained Mass Lurks Beneath Antarctica?

An anomaly in Antarctica seen on satellite imagery has many wondering if there was a possible mass extinction type of impact crater long ago. Others, however, are speculating about Hollow Earth, Nazi bases, Alien bases, and more.

Upcoming Horror/SciFi/Fantasy Movies Fall 2017

As we come into fall's horror season and into the late fall's favorite movie release time after Thanksgiving, let's start to review what's coming up at the theater for horror/scifi/fantasy fans.

Abandoned Alaska

Some of the most abandoned places in the world are mining towns that tapped out the resources and moved on, towns hit by natural disasters, and ones in the most extreme climates. Here are some examples of what Alaska has left behind, beautiful and sometimes quite mysterious!

Testing a Potential Portal

We have yet to prove that portals (doorways to other parallel worlds) exist, but by coming up with testing methods for potential portal areas, we might be learning more about their existence.

How To Make a Haunted Mirror

With a cheap secondhand store picture frame, some acrylic paints, white glue and looking glass spray paint, a haunted mirror can be yours. And, the possibilities are endless.

Halloween-Themed Beers

It's not Halloween yet, but that doesn't stop smart bottlers from imagining what we want. They are being released for the season, so gather up yours - 

How To Make Ghosts Of All Kinds

Most of us Halloween lovers can't get enough of ghosts and graveyards. Let's talk about how to make these haunting figures of all kinds -

Fire Lookout Towers

Fire tower lookouts were built in the early 1900s and workers or volunteers manned them to keep an eye on any potential fire outbreaks following camping season and electrical storms.  They are lovely solitary buildings that create a romantic notion of being in a bird's nest away from the hustle and bustle, king of the forest.

Ancient Giant-Sized Axes and Hammers Baffle Researchers!

Source:  Apparently, these are the largest stone tools yet found and there have been many huge ones around the world. Who wielded these, do you suppose? 

These ones (above) were found in a lake bed in Botswana from between 10,000 to 250,000 years ago!

Halloween Party Themes That Are Super Cheap!

In 2009, I had a post-apocalyptic graveyard theme for a Halloween party. It was very cheap to put together and very effective. You don't have to spend a lot for a Halloween party, as the idea is to make it as dark and rugged as possible which means repurposing junk. 

Where the Giants Lived: Evidence of Their Presence

We talk of ancient giants a lot, but some want more proof that such a race of humans existed in our past.

Healing With Colors

One thing I know about new-age healing is that belief has an amazing power. People who believe in prayer, believe in crystals, belief in hands-on healers, release their own chemicals in their bodies to do that which they seek. Some people can use meditation, others aggressive exercise, and for some, sex. However you find your healing, if there is belief-there is response.

Mummies of Guanajuato

During a cholera outbreak in 1833 in Mexico, many bodies were interred underground in an air-tight catacomb. When families couldn't pay taxes, they were disinterred and placed in a building where many of them mummified.  The building was turned into a museum called El Museo De Las Mamios (Mummy Museum).

Funny Commercials With Monsters

We love our monsters and there's nothing better than commercials that show the love. Here's just some of the best of the monster-related humorous commercials  - 

An Excellent Romanian-Based Unexplained Channel

I am always pleased to make readers aware of smart sources of information. I recently met someone who runs a YouTube channel from Romania including all the strange and unexplained things. I was very impressed.

Where to Shop For Halloween

There are the usual places like Party City and Spirit Halloween to shop for Halloween items, but I like to get things that are unique, individual, and sometimes so damn pretty, you use them year-round if you're a horror/Victorian Era freak like me.  In fact, I suspect that any of these shops you would want to buy from year-round.

The Urban Sasquatch Journal: Extremely Blatant Interactions!

This is the reporting by a Bigfoot researcher of an ongoing study in the Southern part of the United States in a very large park area near homes and urban setting.

Snow-Themed Horror Movies To Get Your Chill On!

It's HOT and most of us are growing weary of it, so let's escape a bit with some horror and scenes of chilly snowy places. I'm going to share a long list of snow-involved horror movies for your chilling pleasure.

America's Zombie Neighborhoods: Abandoned Housing Developments

America was founded in the 1950s as the subdivision maker of the world. Whole neighborhoods with quaint-named streets and tract housing went up all over the country during the boom. Highways were being built at an amazing rate, infrastructure was the boom industry. Then, decades later, as recession hit, shopping malls closed and even whole subdivisions went under before they were event inhabited.

Pirate Ghosts

Aye, I'm a pirate-loving freak! This summer has me in a super pirate-themed frenzy. In fact, I once chased a legend of pirate spirits in the woods of a Virginia Shore.

Blue Lights in Cemeteries

In my book "Vacationing With Ghosts," I showed some interesting encounters with soft balls of blue light that danced around the cemetery across the road from our summer home. At one point, I went in the daytime to figure out where they came from when something whizzed past my ear with a buzz and static charge that made my hair stand up.

Steampunk Kings: Jules Verne and HG Wells

Steampunk today is a fashion statement and to some a lifestyle that incorporates the elements of Victorian Era technology, steam engine and the budding genre of science fiction. For those who love Steampunk, there are a lot of idols to emulate. Here are two "fathers" of the genre.

Why Are Homemade Vintage Masks So Scary?

We tend to be greatly unsettled by photographs of vintage Halloween and the handmade nondescript masks. Why is that? It seems to be something inherent in us to need to see details of faces.

Are You Brave Enough To Sleep Here?

A contest was offering you a delightful tour of the French catacombs, dinner, a scary storytelling time, and then they leave you there to sleep....

Area 52: The OTHER Secret Research?

As if Area 51 in the Nevada Desert hadn't caused enough hubbub and controversy, there is a new supposed location gathering interest, as well. It is said to be underground and vast. And they are calling it "Area 52."

The Ultimate Bonfire Experience

Bonfires and scary tales - what autumn should be made of. It may be August, but the heat has us beat. Let's escape for a moment into bonfires and nighttime rituals -

Japanese Tribe in America?

The tribe (above) was photographed by John Hillers (Smithsonian) in 1973 in Southern Nevada (see page 187 of the book Stone Age in the Great Basin by Emory Strong). Those who studied them couldn't figure out just what tribe they were with, as the men all head heavy beards. They were nothing at all like local tribes.

Are Mining Ghost Towns Haunted?

I used to doubt the possibility of mining ghost towns being haunted because of the simple wood construction of the quickly-built homes in boom towns. However, I have come to find that all these mining lands are very haunted by different levels of human habitation over the centuries. They act almost as a magnet to keep energies moving in and out of the fabric of our time and space.

What Are Shadow People?

Shadow people.

This is one of the most often reported and vexing phenomena in paranormal research.

Grand In Road's Halloween Preview

It's early to be thinking about Halloween, right? Nope! 

Over Niagara Falls in a Barrel

Niagsra Falls, linking Lake Erie and Lake Ontario has the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world. So, what else do you think when you see such a powerful force except the obvious - I wonder if I can go over it in a barrel and survive?

Horror Movies With Dark Forests

It may be the middle of summer, but with the humidity and heat, some of us are starting to get autumn-itis. It's a common syndrome in which you stop dreaming about beaches and start dreaming about chilly mountains with creeping fog. Here's some movies to watch when you darken your home and pretend it's that most magical time of the year - 

The Red Camel Ghost

I am intrigued by the fact that the Southwestern US was forward-thinking enough in the 1800s to acquire camels for use by the army men. When the Civil War interrupted their charting of the Arizona territory, the army sold some at auction but let some loose into the desert. That is how the legend of the Red Camel came to be.

Hauntingly Creepy Abandoned Churches and Graveyards

There is something unsettling and serene about abandoned churches and graveyards. We think in terms of spirits when we think of both locations, so what happens when the spirits are forgotten?

Flooded Cemeteries: Terrifying Finds!

It wasn't just in the movie "Poltergeist" where graves surfaced. Often floods bring to surface the last occupants of the town and sometimes in grizzly scenarios like something out of a zombie movie.

Giant and Alien-Like Mummies Found Under a Church and Photographed!

This extraordinary story about a most unusual collection of mummies including giant ones and rather alien-looking ones is not a story from the 1800s or early 1900s. This is from the 2000s. And it will be told by the person who took the photographs, a researcher I highly respect. Be prepared to be amazed.

Ancient Giants' Treasure in the Grand Canyon?

A story has been perpetuated for over a century that, if true, makes the Grand Canyon two wonders of the world.

Tall White Alien Base in Pennyslvania?

I was contacted by someone who has been living rather "underground" from public radar with concerns of government tracking. He has revealed a very interesting story. I find this interesting for two reasons - I recently learned of Iran supposedly having a tall white aliens underground base and Weird USA book covered a legend in this area of albino people hiding out. When there's smoke, well, sometimes there's a heat source.

Noises in the Dark

Upon occasion in my lifetime, I've awakened to hear myself fluently speaking an unknown language. The sound of my own voice easily speaking this dialect wakes me up and I cease. Other times, I have heard a phone ring that didn't actually ring, a cell phone make a notification sound of texting when the phone is turned off for the night, footsteps, a door slamming, voices, you name it. Most of us experience this and some of us investigate.

Kansas Chupacabra?

There have been a myriad of photos online of supposed chupacabras in the Continent US, southern region mostly. These bring to light a big discrepancy between the original chupacabra (Puerto Rico) and the one people are pointing out in the States.
