Chinese Woman Trapped in a Wall is Mistaken for a Ghost

The New York Daily News has been a treasure trove of good stories as of late. Well, ok, maybe just a “trove” of two stories. But at least this one didn’t make the front page. A woman in China walks down an alleyway with increasingly narrow walls, and gets stuck when she wedges herself between […]

Will Bigfoot Call Device Lead to $10 Million Prize on Spike TV?

I remember at the height of the ghost hunting TV show phenomenon (Ghost Hunters, Ghost Hunters International, Ghost Hunters Academy, Ghost Adventures, Ghost Ghost, blah blah blah) I lamented the dearth of shows on the air about Bigfoot. I may be regretting that now. We mentioned a few months ago about how Spike TV was […]

New York Knicks Alum Baron Davis Claims He Was Abducted By Aliens

I know lots of people move to New York City expecting high culture. And we do have it. Really. But you’d never know it from reading our newspapers. The New York Times is biased at best and fraudulent at worst, but they can’t even hold a candle to the New York Post and the New […]

The Paranormal in History: Ghostly Gunshots

A little something different today, as we continue with our “Paranormal in History” series. This is what happens when paranormal investigators also have accounts with Ancestry.com. This week, the article is from the Chronicle Telegram in Elyria, Ohio, dated March 25th, 1921. Apparently some locals in Marion, Ohio went to do some ghost hunting at […]

UFO Spotted over Brooklyn on Fourth of July

As a Brooklyn native and current resident, this story stood out to me. A UFO over Brooklyn, you say? That’s my kind of story. I actually saw something strange in the skies of Brooklyn about 12 years ago, a daylight sighting that lasted over 45 minutes. But that’s a story for another time. For now, […]

Long Island Widow Believes Home is Haunted by a Demon

This is an older story, but one we found interesting nonetheless. A woman in Long Island claims that her house is haunted, but a paranormal investigator and psychic that she “hired” told her she had a demon. Which seems to be the thing to do, these days. And I’m guessing that the power of that […]

Charlie Sheen Plans to Hunt the Loch Ness Monster

Forget Celebrity Ghost Stories. They need a show about crazy celebrities who are into other paranormal phenomena. Like Meatloaf and Robbie Williams going hunting for UFOs, Charlie Sheen is now jumping on the bandwagon: he plans to head to Scotland to hunt for the Loch Ness monster. HOLLYWOOD hellraiser Charlie Sheen is planning a trip […]

Loch Ness Monster Sightings Blamed on Earthquakes

I’ve heard a lot of plausible explanations over the years for the sightings of the Loch Ness monster (or other lake monsters), but an Italian scientist is now claiming that earthquakes might be the culprit. I’m not a big believer in lake monsters, but even I tend to think that there’s something more going on […]
