Paranormal Activity Blamed for Abuse of Patients

Many paranormal investigators believe that hauntings can be caused by trauma suffered by people who lived in the past. The theory goes that the people who suffered these tragedies cannot “move on” to the afterlife, and thus are stuck here on Earth, doomed to forever answer questions and demands such as “is there anybody here […]

Ryan Buell Paranormal State arrested

Ryan Buell of Paranormal State Arrested for Felony Theft

Well, I can’t say I’m surprised. Ryan Buell, of Paranormal State fame, has finally surpassed Brian Harnois as “Most Embarrassing ParaCeleb.” One of the hoaxingest hoaxsters amongst a myriad of paranormal TV hoaxsters, Buell has previously been accused of stealing money from his fans, as well as falsely claiming he had pancreatic cancer in order to […]

Loveland Frogman Pokemon Go

Loveland Frogman Found by Pokémon Go Players

Remember that video game that nobody plays anymore where you’d run around looking for bizarre creatures? No, not No Man’s Sky. I’m talking about Pokémon Go. That one week where people were playing it constantly and talking about how revolutionary it was (because it, like, made people walk around and stuff) actually led people to […]

Ghost Hunters new channel

Where will Ghost Hunters end up?

As I reported back in June, it seems as though Ghost Hunters is done on the SyFy Channel. When Jason Hawes announced the news on his Facebook page that the show wouldn’t be returning to SyFy, many fans took it to mean that Ghost Hunters was canceled and wasn’t coming back. His comments were vague, […]

Miss Cleo, TV Hotline Psychic, Dead at 53

For anyone who watched television in the late 1990s, there are probably only a handful of commercials that are as memorable and quotable as the Psychic Friends Network ads featuring “Miss Cleo.” Adding to the absurdity of calling a late-night telephone hotline to have your fortune read was her fake Jamaican accent and her shouted […]

Staten Island UFO against Hillary Clinton

UFO Over Staten Island is Against Hillary Clinton

We really try to stay away from political stuff here on the blog. This is a place to talk about the paranormal, supernatural and unexplained, after all. Though I am fairly convinced that Donald Trump is some sort of new cryptid (the lesser-known “orange pendek” maybe?) and that Hillary Clinton is a Lizard Person. Anyway, […]

Blog writers wanted - paranormal, supernatural, unexplained, mountain monsters

Writers Wanted – Paranormal. Supernatural & Unexplained

We have some very talented writers here at The Occult Section, but we’re always looking to add a few more regular writers to our staff. We cover such topics as ghosts, paranormal investigations, UFOs, cryptozoology, myths & legends, and any other unexplained phenomena. We have a good sense of humor and are not afraid to […]

Tom DeLonge of Blink-182 Says He Hunts UFOs for the Government

I usually enjoy when celebrities are into the paranormal and are public about it. It’s one thing for us regular schlubs to see a UFO or a ghost or Bigfoot, but when people who have a public image to protect are open about it, it tends to lend a little more credibility to the story. […]

Haunted Trails in New York and West Virginia

History and the paranormal have always been intertwined. Or at least they should be. Ghosts, after all, are thought to be the spirits or residual energy of people who have passed in the, well, past. So, history! Unfortunately, not every ghost hunter out there approaches history with the reverence it deserves. And that’s why stories […]

Ghost Seen in Good Life Festival Photo

Paranormal investigators are always looking for that “Holy Grail” of evidence, whether it’s a picture, a video, or an audio recording. The Bigfoot community has the Patterson-Gimlin film, which is either footage of a real, living, breathing Sasquatch, or one of the best, most elaborate hoaxes in human history. But even as good as that […]
