True Haunting by Edwin F Becker: Hair Raising Experience

As Author Edwin F Becker points out, there were no Ghost Hunters a la TAPS in 1970. There was also no Amityville horror; at least not until 1977 when Jay Anson put pen to paper and wrote about the “alleged” ghostly problems of the Lutz family in the house where an entire family sans one… Read More ›

HAUNTED The Ghosts that Share Our World by John Pinkney

HAUNTED is the type of ghostly chronicle that permeated my teen years. After experiencing several “events” that could not be satisfactorily explained, I became obsessed with reading every ghost tale I could get my hands on. I became a devout fan of the writings of Elliot O’Donnell, Ghost Hunter extraordinaire. Of course years later I… Read More ›

Paranormal Activity 4 (2012): Flogging a Dead Horse

After watching this fourth trip to the Paranormal “well” several metaphors sprang immediately to mind. The first one became part of the title; Flogging a dead horse, the second was hinted at in my first sentence; going to the well once too often and the third was, appropriately enough, trying to get milk when the… Read More ›

Sinister (2012): Close but No Cigar

Directed and co-written by Scott Derrickson and starring Ethan Hawke, Sinister put a bit of a twist on the “found” film footage movie. I saw trailers for this film last year and could not wait to see it. Sadly I had to wait until it became available on iTunes, where I found that it was probably more effective in a… Read More ›

The Un-Friendly Village of Borley

About four years ago my daughter and I decided to have a look at some of the more “haunted” areas in and around Suffolk. We had a look at a cemetery that has been well documented as being haunted by apparitions and mists and floating lights. It is in between Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds… Read More ›

Ghost Hunting for Beginners by Rich Newman: Things to Help You Find Boo…

If you look at the list of books I am reading on Goodreads right now, you will no doubt notice that they are all a bit “ghost heavy.” I guess there is something about this time of year (near Christmas) that brings out the urge for ghosts. Call it the Scrooge complex if you will,… Read More ›

Can You Spell Ouija Board?

We were watching the 2002 film Long Time Dead tonight which centres around a Ouija board and the evil Djinn (a fire demon according to the film) it releases. The resultant death and carnage all go a long way toward warning the audience of the perils of Ouija boards. Specifically if you operate one under… Read More ›

Death of a Ghost Hunter (2007): Small Budget, Big Scares

I have said this before, “Every once in a while, you find a real gem hidden amongst the dross. When this happens it reaffirms your belief that there is still real talent out there in search of better actors and a bigger budget.” Last night we found another of these ‘hidden gems’ via LOVEFILM. It was actually as… Read More ›
