    The Hunted

    The Hunted

    Supernaturals are being hunted down by hunters that can temporarily take the powers of those they hunt, allowing them to further hunt down more. Making them the ultimate killing machines. As the killings continue they gain more knowledge on attracting and killing supernaturals. 25 years have past since they've started and the supernaturals have started to fight back trying to regain their freedom and to preserve their kind.

    Slayer Savvy

    Name's Sascha. I'm not as well-known as the male resistors. Yes, we're all made and resist the strain itself. We rebirth into our next lives with no memory of being made, but a strong sense of duty to our last left purpose as we died. We can't remember that unless we Awaken, which is the process of remembering all our lives. I'm reborn from Ileana, not Illona, Jusztina Szilagyi Tepes.

    The 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina'

    If you lived through the 90's, then you are probably familiar with the TV show Sabrina the Teenage Witch, starring Melissa Joan Hart. A magical comedy show for kids that ran for seven seasons. It was a far cry from the original comics, keeping only the name and some of the original characters.

    11 Best Horror Movies from the 1950s

    The 1950s were a period of time where horror started to become a part of the consciousness of the American population. It wasn't quite something that was taken seriously as it would become in the 1960s, but it was still certainly fun. In this blog, I'll be talking about the best 11 horror movies from that beginning era. They're not entirely in order, except for the first one.

    Fear and Fiction

    Fear and Fiction

    When we discuss horror in literature, there are several things to keep in mind. What are the cultural currents of the time? What is its era? What characterizes the fear which might be felt by those special few who vie for terror? It is with the mind towards these questions that we should look at horror, viewing it with the strong views that Lovecraft did. He attached horror to several themes present within his own time—in particular eugenics, quantum mechanics, and theosophy. These different themes influenced the way he viewed horror and the way his society would receive his horror. The difficulty of modern times is analyzing how horror should go forwards. We have seen the H. P. Lovecrafts, and Edgar Allan Poes, and Stephen Kings.

    The Black Corridor

    The Black Corridor

    Time is a damned thing. It circles back around on itself, like a snake eating its own tail. Sometimes, events that have transpired, long ago, seem to repeat themselves, as events realign themselves, and tragedy strikes the same spot, on the same date, maybe even at the same hour. A date in time, a day of the year, could draw to it the same mental vibrations that set certain events in motion, long ago.

    The Greatest Ghost Stories Ever Written

    The Greatest Ghost Stories Ever Written

    Ghost stories are often called some of the scariest pieces of writing of all time, and they make up a great majority of the horror genre. Written from the beginning of literature onwards, people have always been interested in the movements of those who are already gone and have written many stories for and about them. Some are based on real experiences, some are completely fictitious (well, you better hope they are) and some have grounding in historical or fantastical realities.

    Getting the Best Deal Offers on Halloween

    The countdown is coming to an end for the biggest event of the year. It’s October, and all the hype, madness, and craziness has started. It is that time of the year when people celebrate with all the joy, and show off the inside monsters they have been hiding for the whole year. You will see lanterns glowing in your neighbor’s house. You will see people dressed up in scary and eerie costumes, or children celebrating their day with trick or treat party, while others may be enjoying their day carving pumpkins like never before. The celebrations are everywhere.

    Slender-Man Almost Got Me

    Slender-Man Almost Got Me

    One day my dad told me a scary story about this man-like creature called slender-man. He has no face and he has eight long arms that come out of his back. At first, I didn't believe him but after hearing a lot of different stories about the man-like creature, I started getting more & more into it. As I got older I heard a story about if you go into the bathroom and turn off the lights and say slender-man three times in the mirror, he will appear and come for you. Years later, I was 21. It was right after my 21st birthday. me and all my friends were messing around in the woods at 10 PM that night when we heard something behind the trees. "It's just animals," I said as we kept walking.

    Tightrope Cat

    Masika sat in her apartment, cowed by the gloom and dirty-gray walls. The clock in the kitchen was ticking so loudly it scraped at her nerves. Her fingers itched to rip it right down. Her toes curled into the fabric of her couch. She pondered the problem, biting the nail of her thumb, all the way down to the nub. She could stomp it into silence, maybe. Smash it to smithereens. Imagining it made her laugh. The sound came out awkwardly, somewhere between a choke and a sob.

    Reed Alexander's Horror Review of 'The Devil's Rejects' (2005)

    Reed Alexander's Horror Review of 'The Devil's Rejects' (2005)

    Rob lost the fucking plot. Plain and simple. House of 1000 Corpses (HO1kC) was a rare and special moment, and this sequel just didn't know what to do with its damn self. It's like Rob forgot who the characters were. Baby Firefly from the first movie was a deranged infantile psycho. This movie has her as a boring bully. Yeah she still has the childish lean, but it's almost too mature from the daffy character I loved from HO1kC. Otis Driftwood was a god damn artist (at least in his own mind). This movie paints him as a mindless brute, a simple thug with a level of ruthless efficiency. Hell, he gets rapey. He wasn't rapey in the first movie. Maybe a bit perverted, but not rapey. Captain Spaulding was the only one who got his fucking character right.

    Hereditary (2018) is a movie I have watched many many times, all the way through, in individual parts, in sections and even backwards, forwards and inside out. I have tried over and over again to see what the hype was all about and, I have even tried telling myself repeatedly that I must love this movie because everyone else does. Let me explain why I finally gave it a two out of five rating.

    My Paranormal Story

    My Paranormal Story

    First off: I’m not here by any means to sway anyone’s religious beliefs/values nor say you’re “wrong in believing what you do because your beliefs are not like mine” etc. I’m very open to others and their beliefs/views on life as well as interested in their views of the afterlife. Personally, I am a baptized Christian now and actually was raised very religious, believing in God and the devil while baptized catholic not long after I was born. I have my doubts unfortunately like everyone has; however, no matter what I go through, no matter how painful and lingering, despite the doubts I have, God has always brought me back to Him along with answering my prayers. Every. Single. Time.

On occasion, these loved ones may only stick around, knowing living family have a big milestone coming up, or they're having a rough time, and wish to be there to support them.

    A Night at the Black Fleece

    The challenge was simple, spend one night in room ten of The Black Fleece Inn and £20,000 would be yours. The only problem was, despite many attempts, no one had ever stood up to the challenge. Perhaps it had something to do with the Fleece being the most haunted building in the small town of Ravensfield.

It is a dare game in which it is mostly known as “The Elevator Game”, and it is considered to be one of the most dangerous dare games out there for people to play. It is believed that this dare has originated from some Korean website. As far as how old the game is, no one knows. At least, no one has posted anything about how old the game is so far anywhere.

    Urban legends circulate at work, on bulletin boards, and across the internet, in our modern age, via "creepy pasta" postings. ALL of them, some argue, are horror stories, whether or not they make us laugh, cringe, shriek, giggle or shudder in fright. After all, their timeless, anonymous "It Could Happen to You" quality makes us feel, indeed, "It Could Happen to ME!" And so it could, Dear Reader, IF, indeed, any of these stories had a basis in fact. (Some might, but that is another topic.)
