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 Adventures” Host Zak Bagans Buys Alleged Demon House

The big news today is that Zak Bagans, host of the Travel Channel show Ghost Adventures, has bought a home in Indiana that is supposedly inhabited by demons. Apparently, all sorts of paranormal happenings have occurred here, from footsteps to levitations and even a possessed child climbing the walls backwards. All sorts of people are […]

Bigfoot Likes Pizza and Nutter Butters?

There’s been a lot of drama surrounding the Bigfoot community as of late. First there was the report of numbskull hoaxer Rick Dyer claiming once again (he claimed the same thing in 2008, and the Bigfoot turned out to be a gorilla costume and some racoon entrails in a cooler) that he had shot and […]

Crop Circle Revealed as Nvidia Publicity Stunt

Crop circles are one of those annoying red herring, albatross-around-the-neck aspects of the paranormal. They are easily explainable, are far more normal than paranormal, and have been proven over and over again to be hoaxes, and yet people still believe that aliens are traveling billions of miles to come here and carve weird symbols into […]

The Year in Review: 2013 – Part 2

Happy New Year, readers! 2014 is here, and it’s time once again to look back at the previous year. I first did a “Year in Review” series back in 2012 (for 2011), but wasn’t able to do one last year. The demands of my job at the time were too great, and I was bogged […]

Pennsylvania House for Sale, Only Slightly Haunted

So this story has been making the rounds on the interwebs lately. Apparently there is a house for sale in Pennsylvania, and the current owner is describing it as “slightly haunted.” Footsteps, taps, and a “barely noticeable” scream occurring at 3:13am are just some of the types of paranormal activity in the home, according to the […]

10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty to Premiere Friday January 10th on Spike TV

So I guess this is really going to happen. I was hoping this show would die a quiet, painless death behind the scenes, and off of the radar, but it seems we will not be so lucky. Spike TV will be bringing us the new “reality” game show called 10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty. And […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

We’d like to wish all of our friends and fans a very Happy Thanksgiving! And while it’s usually pretty tough to connect Thanksgiving with anything paranormal, the folks over at South Park managed to do just that with their hilarious send-up of Ancient Aliens on the History Channel in the episode “A History Channel Thanksgiving.” Have a safe and […]

Psychic Sylvia Browne Dead, Fails to Predict Own Death

As I’m sure many of you have heard by now, self-proclaimed psychic Sylvia Browne has died at the age of 77. Now while we are very critical and harsh on psychics and other paranormal frauds here at The Occult Section, we are never happy to hear that someone has died. That being said, I think […]
