The Last Josh
I've been in a coma for the last six months. I was fortunate, they say. The semi-truck that hit my car killed my mother and my fiancee but spared me. Well, not spared, I guess. I had two broken legs, a shattered collar bone, and I was in a persistent vegetative state for six months, three weeks, and two days. I awoke on April twenty-sixth, two thousand twenty-one.
I obsessively watched her standing there alone in the dark. The silver moonlight flickered on her dark, raven hair like a million tiny diamonds. Her pale blue eyes were thoughtful and attentive to the darkness before her. Her succulent, pouting lips had the appearance of a fine, red wine. I had forgotten just how well-formed and beautiful she was. Knowing that I would never see her again made her seem even more captivating.
Blood ain’t red when it runs down a sink. In the movies, they always make it bright, bursting red, but it’s not actually like that. It goes a little yellow once it starts slipping away, retreating like a coward.
I met Kevin, my blind date, last week online. Both of us love haunted houses, so we're heading to a creepy old mansion near my condo for our first outing. The millionaire, who owns the house, throws a spooky shindig every month on the full moon. This year Halloween landed on a super blue moon, and we thought it would be cool to check it out. We're here said Kevin, as we pulled up to the mansion's rusty old gates. Slowly they began to open, letting us drive through.
5 Horror Films Based On True Events
Truth is stranger than fiction. As a horror fan, I have seen my share of movies that claimed to be based on true stories. For some films, it is just to get more publicity like The Blair Witch Project (1999) and Paranormal Activity (2007) while for other films like Jaws (1975) and A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984), they are the real deal. Welcome back to the creepiest page on the internet. I’m your narrator, Kevin and today I will be counting down my top picks for 5 Horror Films Based On True Events. From the infamous shark movie that kept swimmers out of the water for decades to the slasher film that made you never want to sleep again. I will be talking about some of the most famous horror films that were based on real life occurrences. Let’s begin.
Vaya con Dios Maria
“Good morning, Juliana,” I say. She doesn’t hear me or she’s just being rude, either way, she doesn’t answer me. We’ve been working together for years now. She works in produce, I’m a cashier. Honestly, I can’t remember the last time she’s said two words to me.
My Love Affair with Dario Argento
I became slightly obsessed with Italian horror director Dario Argento about five years ago. I don’t know how it happened – we were only ever casual acquaintances before.
Light gently permeated this foreign place from incandescent pinheads in the far off distance, entire galaxies unknown to man spaced far yet not so few between. Clouds of gaseous blue and purple detonations mottled across this great beyond, surpassing the grasp of one’s ability to imagine it’s scope, let alone handle an understanding of such phenomena. My head, both light and lagging, revolved across this vast spacescape in awe, temporarily unaware of the absurdness of my situation as I sheepishly peered into the glory of both past and present. As my gaze descended my eyes caught my pale feet, wide and naked, firmly planted on an imperceptible plain. A torrent of ice began to stretch from behind my eyes up and backward, a measured waltz from neuron to the next which promptly dissipated as it’s travel found the nape of my neck. My lips curled as my mouth cracked in horror letting out a scream, a scream that came up silent as if I were an actor in one of those silent film reels I’d seen as a child.
8 Most Haunted Books of All Time
No doubt that books are one of the most trusted and needed friends of humanity. Mankind has been using books for sharing knowledge and secrets to others and succeeding generations since time immemorial. Even, Almighty God uses books to share His teachings and philosophy with us. But, what if I say that some books on this earth are haunted and cursed? Not believing. But, really some books exist in our nature which are of our dimension but have a relation with other mysterious dimensions and most probably they are from the devil - the enemy of God and Mankind.
A DEAFENING SHRILL PIERCED THE CALM OF THE NIGHT like a sword through the ears. I fumbled from my deep sleep and successfully battled to turn on the lightshade beside my bed. A couple more female wails fluttered the entire air so loudly that they could rouse the dead. I had not enough time to even squint; terrific emergencies have a way of zeroing the average time it takes to adjust human vision against abrupt light.
15 Eerie Things About Japan's Suicide Forest
Northwest of the majestic Mount Fuji is the sprawling 13.5 square miles of Aokigahara, a forest so thick with foliage that it's known as the Sea of Trees. But it's the Japanese landmark's horrific history that made the woods a fitting location for the spooky horror film The Forest. Untold visitors have chosen this place, notoriously called The Suicide Forest, as the setting for their final moments, walking in with no intention of ever walking back out. Here are a few of the terrible truths and scary stories that forged Aokigahara's morbid reputation.
Dada Freud I allege a cover-up of epic proportions. The existence of the Dada Scientists has long been denied. And, for years, the monster evolved by this group, the Idman, now known as the Dada Freud, has been hushed-up. We are going to pay for that.
Wandering in the Night
“Happy birthday Scarlet.” says Aunt Clara, as I slice the chocolate cake in front of me. “Thank you,” I reply, showing no sign of excitement, as there was nothing that has changed compared to previous years, except my age.
I’m sure you heard the myths about black-eyed children. Some people say they are an urban legend. Some people say they are true. Others wonder how they came to be. Are they extraterrestrials? Are they vampires? Are they some kind of weird experiment that went wrong? No one really had the answers as to where they came from and why they are here. Some say they’re evil and bring bad luck and death. Some had no idea of who they are.
EIDOLON - Part 4
Where am I? I couldn’t see further than a meter in front of me. The term darkness didn’t do it justice--I was surrounded on all sides by an expanse of black nothingness. It was empty, void of life or light, but oddly enough I didn’t feel afraid. I was just as empty, emotionless. Calm.
I move my eyes around the room. It‘s the most amazing living room I have ever been in. The furniture is so ornate. I have never seen such “gothic” light fixtures in real life! Even the carpet is spectacular. The woven details are so intricate. I am completely in love. I snap back into reality. My husband, Mitchell, is calling Me. He is in the next room already. Something about a library. If my Uncle’s library is anything like this living room, I am both the happiest woman in the world, and the saddest. It seems I never got the chance to meet the most amazing man in my family!
