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 […]

Ghost Hunters Accidentally Burn Down LeBeau Plantation

These days, trespassing just seems to go hand in hand with ghost hunting. Sure, there are many groups who go through the proper channels to gain access to property in order to investigate, but it seems like more and more self-styled ghost hunting groups are popping up, and ghost hunting is just one of the […]

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 […]

Ghost Hunters Caught Trespassing in Cemetery

After the past few weeks of people trying to blame paranormal investigating for why they got caught in illegal activities, it’s refreshing to see some ghost hunters getting in trouble for just plain old ghost hunting.

We’ve seen all sorts of haunted houses and haunted inn’s for sale on Craigslist before, but this is the first time we’ve seen an entire ghost town for sale. And you can have the whole town for the price of a very small co-op in New York City. No mention of the town being haunted, […]

UFO Hunter Claims to See Iguana on Mars

Ever since NASA has been exploring Mars, UFO enthusiasts have been spotting odd objects on the planet’s surface, most famously the face on Mars. More recently, people have claimed to see a rat, a sheep-man (yes, seriously), and more. I came across this story of yet another UFO hunter claiming to see a very earthly […]

Ariana Grande Encounters Some Demons But Deletes The Photo of Them

It seems like it’s been forever (or, like, a few weeks) since we’ve done a “celebrity reveals a paranormal interest” story here, so imagine my delight when I stumbled upon this story involving Ariana Grande and her encounter with demons. Or something. All I really know about this chick is that she occasionally interrupts my […]

I Want to Believe: Bigfoot on the Brain

The summer of my Bigfoot obsession began with an episode of MonsterQuest on the History Channel, which had long since stopped showing shows about history. I was watching my niece—she was napping and I was half asleep on the couch. I heard a groan escape the television and crawl its way up my toes, my […]

Bigfoot Hunter Shot by Fellow Bigfoot Hunter

It seems that lately, the popular excuse for ne’er-do-wells caught in their suspicious acts is to claim to be investigating the paranormal.
