    10 Freaky Horror Prompts

    Here are some scary prompts you can use for inspiration... 1: Scare Face Photo by @lensofsky on Unsplash You meet a man who claims he's a Jinn (another creation) and he begs you for a place to stay in exchange for power. He promises he'll make you rich if you take care of him. The catch is that you can never see his face because if you do, your heart won't be able to take the fear. You take care of the man, but you must be careful not to look at his face while doing so.

    The Bedsheet Ghost

    The Bedsheet Ghost

    Since the Covid-19 outbreak began, families remain concerned about the health and well-being of their loved ones. Due to the economic implications of the pandemic, many families are also feeling the financial crunch. Not wanting to deprive children of the traditional Halloween experience, most parents are opting for a safe, affordable Halloween. When it comes to celebrating Halloween, what children really want is a costume that doesn’t compromise on scare factor.

    My Top Three Ghost Hunting Bucket List Locations

    My Top Three Ghost Hunting Bucket List Locations

    Whether or not you believe in the paranormal is your prerogative. Personally, I find it hard to believe that in our world where strange occurrences are frequent and so many things are left unexplained, that there isn’t something supernatural residing alongside us. I’ve had an interest in hunting the paranormal since I was a child and began to watch the TAPS team in Ghost Hunters. Since then I’ve researched and been fascinated by how many places in the country hold supernatural energy, and how many researchers and hunters have been able to communicate with spirit beyond their grave. Contacting the other side has been a dream of mine to do for so long, and while I don’t currently have the resources to do it, I have a list for the second I have the ability!

    The Ghosts of Halloweens Past

    This Halloween most definitely won’t be the celebration that has become tradition to us, but that doesn’t mean it has to be lost. Halloween is so much more than mountains of sugar and litres of fake blood, it is spiritual, a little superstitious and a whole lot of fun. If we dive back into its history, coming from the Celtic tradition of Samhain (s-ow-in), we can find some fun, traditional and safe ways to mark the day!

    Revisiting John Carpenter's 'Halloween'

    Revisiting John Carpenter's 'Halloween'

    There was an uncanny spectral element to the film. The vintage aesthetic, the way the camera maneuvered throughout its entire duration. Its minimal use of spectacle and special effects.  Its impeccable flow; transitioning from scene to scene without losing a grasp of my attention.
