The Return of the Tell-Tale Heart...
I planned so carefully… so how can I be mad? How can you say that I’m mad when I am in perfect health with a steady hold on reality? Would a madman wait for seven nights, carefully planning? I think not. So when I say the old man’s heart was beating, haunting me, it must be so. Yet, here I am, sitting in a home for mad-men with shackles around my wrists. What was I to do though, let the beating of the old man’s dead heart slowly drive me mad? I cared for the old man but his eye… his vulture eye still haunts me to this very day. The psychiatrists try to compel me to admit I am mad, and that the beating was my own heart out of fear, but no! I do not believe such lies! The eye was a villain and the beating was its idea of revenge. But how I strategically cut the body up and hid it beneath the floor boards is something a madman would not do. Yet, I still sit here. I have daily meetings with psychiatrists who continuously just tell me I am mad. As I sit here and recall the events of my most recent appointment, I can hear the beating, like I do most days, faintly in the back of my head. As I walked into the office the chill hit me, and it reminded me of the tiring ways I waited outside the door of the old man’s room. The appointment went on calmly and I talked cheerfully, much like I did with the police the night I killed the man. Then it happened, he was there. I never thought it to be possible, but there was the old man with his vulture eye, and it was staring directly at me. At this point some might think I am off my rocker, but no! Would a madman kill so strategically?

Tolls of the Craft
Milan, Italy, 1608. Francesco Maria Guazzo sat in concentration with intent of enlightenment, quill in hand, prepared to compose precisely 345 pages. A man before, approximately 121 years earlier, sat in the same position, by the name of Heinrich Kramer, to birth Malleus Maleficarum. Little did Heinrich or Francesco know in that moment that their workings would set to inspire men and women alike in a widely controversial topic: witch hunting. Specifically, witch hunting, witchcraft, pacts with Satan himself, and a classification of demons.

How Horror Helped Me Face Myself

Creepy Movies That Are Based on True Stories
Everybody loves curling up in bed on a cold night and watching a scary movie. What makes a scary movie scarier is knowing that even a small part of it is based on a true story. Knowing that somebody went through that terror in reality is scary itself.
The Hooded Nightmare
A man stood there, staring at her. The stranger who always haunted her in her dreams. He was standing in the middle of a field with dead, decaying animals as far as the eye could see. The fowl stench of animal flesh made her gag. She tried to hold her breath, but she gasped for air. Breathing in the horrid smell of the atmosphere around her only made the queasiness worse. Tears were streaming down her cheeks from the depressing sight and the pain aching in her throat. There was nothing she could possibly do, but stand there and be helpless, she hated the feeling. As she stared at the mutilated animals, she noticed something odd about the colors of their fur and their size. They were nothing like the animals she encountered in reality. They were bigger than animals she had ever seen. Different shades of blue and white danced on their fur along with other dark colors. The fur was sketched with black and silver markings inked all over their bodies.
I always knew this day would come. No one is infinite. Everyone bends the knee to the "God of Death" at some point in their chain of existence. But this one is a little different.
