On the Trail of Hauntings – Review

On the Trail of Hauntings Directed by Seth Breedlove | Small Town Monsters Whenever someone finds out I’m a paranormal investigator, the reaction is inevitably some variation of “Wow! That sounds so exciting, I’d love to come along and watch sometime!” And I always chuckle. Because most of the time, their reactions are solely based […]

Paranormal Podcasts: The 46 of 46 Podcast

The 46 of 46 Podcast Back in 2016, I did a short (very short) series of reviews on paranormal podcasts. I was new to the podcasting world, and my wide-eyed optimism got the best of me. I was going to check out tons of paranormal podcasts, as there were – and still are – so, […]

The Shadows Amongst Us by Dustin J. Morgan

The Shadows Amongst Us – Review

The Shadows Amongst Us Directed by Dustin J. Morgan Ummm…not even sure to begin with this one. So I guess I’ll start at the beginning. My son and I found this movie a few months back on Amazon Prime (for free at the time) and got about 12 minutes in before turning it off. The […]

Ghost Hunters canceled?

‘Ghost Hunters’ Canceled Again?

Honestly, I stopped watching the show after the second season, when things started getting really ridiculous, and the show mutated from seemingly serious paranormal investigations – where they hardly found any evidence and Jason […]

The Ghost of South Brooklyn

The Ghost of South Brooklyn

For the past two weeks, my “Throwback Thursdays” of the paranormal have focused on bizarre creatures – the Wildman of Rockaway Beach, and the Coney Island Monster. But this week, I’ll be focusing on a ghost that haunted the intersection of two streets in South Brooklyn, New York, back in 1890. Now before I proceed, […]

Gettysburg Ghosts Run Across Road

Gettysburg Ghosts Caught on Video?

I woke up this morning to see a very interesting story on my news feed. A video is going around apparently showing two ghosts crossing a road in one of my favorite places, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The Gettysburg battlefield is the site of the bloodiest and most important battle of the American Civil War, as it […]

Haunted Houses in the Age of Quarantine

Thanks to COVID-19, we are all adjusting to a new normal. Commutes to work are now as simple as rolling out of bed and turning on our laptops. Children “attend class” via Zoom or other video conferencing applications. Grocery shopping requires masks, gloves, and wiping down food items with disinfecting wipes before putting them on […]
