Halloween Watchlist – Personal Favorites

For my final Halloween Watchlist, I decided to recommend a few of my personal favorites for Halloween viewing. Everything I’ve mentioned in my previous lists are highly recommended, but for me, the following list are films I must watch every year, as per my own tradition. They are just movies that I love, and that […]

Subtly Spooky: Paranormal Paintings

This post will be part personal disclosure, and part shameless self-promotion, so I hope you will indulge me… I have always been an artistic person, and my interest in painting and drawing goes back as far as my interest in the paranormal.

Spring Heeled Jack

Spring Heeled Jack

Spring is in the air and for some of the world’s cryptids, it’s also in their step.  Take Spring Heeled Jack, for instance.  This is a guy who witnesses claim could jump over walls, all while cackling maniacally at others’ fear and misfortune.  What a schadenfreude. The tale of Spring Heeled Jack is not for […]

A few years back, we blogged about Pennhurst Asylum being turned into a haunted house Halloween attraction, and the controversy that surrounded it. And the controversy was well deserved. Ethical questions arose regarding turning a former asylum where patients were horribly mistreated into a campy Halloween attraction to make money. Now, a New Jersey man […]

“The House Isn’t Haunted, You Nitwits”

The Spencer Mountain Mansion, located in North Carolina, is reported to be haunted. Not only is it reported to be haunted, but it has been turned into a Halloween season attraction, complete with a website that includes dripping blood. Classy.
