Halloween Movies - Found Footage

Halloween Watchlist – Found Footage

In my first installment of this year’s Halloween Watchlist, I recommended some funny horror films, and mentioned my love of found footage horror movies. And that list even had a found footage movie on it: “Bad Ben.” So I decided to make this week’s list all about my favorite horror film genre. And while that […]

Amityville Horror House

An Amityville Horror Connection

Any good paranormal investigator will tell you that historical research is one of the most important tools in their arsenal. Ghost hunters use it learn about the locations they are investigating, and why a certain spot may have paranormal activity. Murders, suicides, and other tragedies such as horrific conditions at medical facilities seem to become […]

Brooklyn Hyena and Out of Place Animals

The phenomenon of out of place animals is an interesting sub-genre of cryptozoology and Forteana, but not one that I am usually drawn to, with few exceptions. I think it’s safe to say that creatures like Bigfoot, Mothman, the Jersey Devil, the Loch Ness monster, and the Dover Demon are far more intriguing than a […]

Bigfoot Spotted in New Jersey

Last month, I did a blog post about the Jersey Devil and how the legend may have originally been borne of people simply misidentifying Bigfoot. After the post was published, I had a number of people contact me privately and on social media because they were surprised to hear that Bigfoot could indeed be living […]

NY Post New York Paranormal Society

New York Post Interview with Jason Stroming

This story appeared in the October 27th edition of the New York Post. Yours truly was interviewed about my paranormal group, the New York Paranormal Society, as well as hauntings in and around New York City. A big thanks to Emily Nonko and Jordan Amchin for the great write-up! The homes with the scariest ghost […]

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, […]

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 […]

John Gray ghost hunters

Rockies Pitcher Jon Gray is Also a Ghost Hunter

I must admit, I have fallen out of love with baseball. I used to watch it all the time, sometimes intently and sometimes just as background noise while I did other things, but I was always around baseball. I especially loved the post-season, whether my beloved Yankees were in the fight or not. But in […]

Creepy Clown Spotted on Staten Island

As a native New Yorker and a paranormal investigator, I have to say that in my opinion,  the creepiest borough in New York City is Staten Island. Not Manhattan, not Brooklyn. Queens is barely on my radar, and the Bronx is scary for non-paranormal reasons, but the forgotten borough is the place to be if […]

Second of Three: NYC’s Oldest and Most Hidden Cemeteries

Last night before going to see Sleep No More, my friend Chaz and I met up at this hidden gem of a cemetery to document and take some photos for my article. That’s what I call “Killing two birds with one (tomb)stone.” (::uproarious laughter::….But really though.) Chaz took these photos for me while I ogled […]
