Writers Wanted – Paranormal, Supernatural & Unexplained

Whether you are new here or a regular reader of The Occult Section, you’ve no doubt noticed our horrifically brightly colored “Writers Wanted” sign in the sidebar over there to your right. We have some very talented writers here at The Occult Section, but we’re looking to add a few more regular writers to our […]

Ghost Hunters Mob Haunted Hospital

I’m not really sure where to even begin with this story. I mean, we’ve covered the “ghost hunters trespassing is bad, mmkay?” thing a lot here, so I’ll move on to the other thing. A group of people, a very large group of people, trespassed at an abandoned hospital recently after finding out that it was […]

Scientist Says Yeti DNA is from Ancient Polar Bear

Over the past few years, I’ve lobbed a lot of criticism to the Squatchers over on the Finding Bigfoot television show, mainly for attributing every downed tree, weird howl and snapped twig to Sasquatch. I understand that if these creatures exist, then they would probably pull down an occasional tree, make an odd howl here […]

Jack the Ripper Didn’t Exist, Claims Detective

I know Jack the Ripper has nothing to do with the paranormal, but the most famous serial killer in history has always been one of those great unsolved mysteries to me, and I’ve pretty much read just about every book about him that I could get my hands on. So I’m sort of an armchair […]

Spooky Clowns Terrorizing Northampton, England

Of all the weird creatures and phenomena out there, I’ve always been more interested in things like Bigfoot, Mothman, the Dover Demon, Goatman, and the like, versus things like mad gassers and phantom clowns. I think they are interesting phenomena, but I’m just not fully convinced that there is anything paranormal or supernatural about them. […]

Psychic Uses Mystery Man to Make Spooky Sounds During Ghost Hunt

The more things change, the more things stay the same. Back in the 19th century when mediums and séances were all te rage, many of these psychics were exposed as frauds, with the most notable being the Fox sisters. The sisters used fake knockings to convince others that they were communicating with ghosts and the […]

New Photograph of the Loch Ness Monster May Just Be a Rogue Wave

It seems like cryptozoology is plagued by bad photographs, and even the term “Blobsquatch” was coined to describe those oh-so-fuzzy photos of an amorphous something in the woods that might be Bigfoot, or might just be a tree stump. And while there have actually been some interesting photos and video of Sasquatch, I really don’t […]

Ghost Hunter Makes Unusual Discovery: A Rational Explanation

It’s a rare treat for us when we can report about a ghost hunter actually using science and a rational explanation to account for strange readings encountered during a paranormal investigation. The thing is, we don’t see stories like this too often, unfortunately. In a field that has become about territoriality, bragging rights, and just […]

Home Buyers Increasingly Concerned About Ghosts

Just a fun little story for a Monday. It seems that potential home buyers in the United Kingdom are becoming increasingly concerned about the homes being haunted by ghosts. They also have lots of questions about cows. Also, I know the British spelling of certain words is a bit different, but I’m not sure what […]
