Ghost Hunter Steals Almost $2500

Here’s yet another story of a paranormal group getting into trouble because they owe money to someone. Last week we talked about a group who allegedly owed a hotel some money, and how it places ghost hunters in a precarious situation, as they are not technically corporations with legal protections. In this story, it appears […]

New Jersey Man Sues Pennhurst Haunted House

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 […]

Man Calls 911 to Report Bigfoot Evidence

In many ways, Bigfoot hunters are just like ghost hunters and UFO hunters. Sure, they all look for different paranormal phenomena and use different methods and equipment, but I love how so many of them just jump to the most ridiculous of conclusions, even when rational explanations are just staring them in the face. To […]

Sylvia Browne fans lash out at ‘psychic’ over false Ohio abduction prediction

Isn’t it funny how psychics, and their defenders, always have excuses ready to go when the “psychic” turns out to be utterly wrong? Actually, it’s not funny, especially when people’s lives are at stake, or when families are grieving over loved ones. Here’s yet another example of how blowhard Sylvia Browne made a huge mistake in […]

Haunted House for Sale in Wilkes-Barre

We’ve done lots of stories on haunted locations for sale (like this one, and this one), and now comes this lovely haunted house (“the area’s own version of the ‘Amityville Horror’) in the beautiful neighborhood of Wilkes-Barre. Though I’m still not sure why everyone still believes in the legend of the Amityville house, as it’s […]

“Haunted” Car Parts from Fatal Ryan Dunn Crash for Sale on Craigslist

We blogged a while back about Jackass star Ryan Dunn dying in a car crash and the alleged paranormal claims that resulted from it. Well, I came across this story today claiming that a person is on Craigslist attempting to sell “haunted” parts from Dunn’s car. It’s good to see that some people on Craigslist are staying classy and […]

Movie Review: Mama

Mama, the highly anticipated ghost story directed by Andy Muschietti from his 2008 short by the same name and executive produced by Guillermo del Toro, was released in theaters across this fine nation Friday, January 18. The story follows a young couple, Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Annabel (Jessica Chastain), who, after spending five years tirelessly […]

Bigfoot Damaged RV, says Sasquatch Hunter

Sometimes a story just smells fishy from the get-go, and this is one of those stories. I’m not sure why the police would make up a story about this guy stating that a Bigfoot attacked his trailer. Then again, maybe they were just trying to shame him. On the other hand, maybe this guy was […]
