Babadook and the Unspeakable Horrors of Parenting

Entertainment, Horror Movies

Parenthood has been a theme in horror since the invention of horror.  A parent must protect their child from the horrors of the world.  When that child is in danger, humans kick into pure survival mode, becoming a bestial composite of man, giving into animal instinct.  But, what if being a mother itself is the […]

The Concept of the Ghost in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar

[MAJOR SPOILERS ahead] To my chagrin, one of the early subplots of Christopher Nolan’s scifi epic Interstellar involves a young girl, Murph, who is convinced there is a ghost in her room.

“Night Of” Horror Movie List

Entertainment, Horror Movies, Lists

Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981) I first saw Dark Night of the Scarecrow when I was nine years old and, appropriately enough, it was on TV. It used to be that not every made-for-TV movie made for network television was terrible—just MOST of them were. You used to get gems like this, Duel (Spielberg’s […]

20 EVIL CHILDREN WHO WILL HAUNT YOUR DREAMS

Entertainment, Ghosts, Paranormal, Unexplained

Children, they are the future–the light of our lives…but where there is light… sometimes there is darkness, and not all children are good-natured. In fact, some children are just born evil, fertile with the seeds of a pathology that will later grow into sociopathic behavior or worse. Remember, all the serial killers who ever lived […]

Evil-Dead

The Best Horror and Sci-Fi Sequels

Entertainment, Horror Movies

Guest post by Billy Russell Sequels are largely terrible. Most sequels are created specifically to cash in on the success of something that was original and money is the prime motivation for its creation, not artistic expression. But sometimes, just sometimes, you’ll catch a part two or even a part three that captures the spirit […]

Entertainment, Paranormal

There’s more to ancient grimoires of black magic and demon evocation than what you’ve seen in the Evil Dead movies. In fact the Book of the Dead featured in those films–the Necronomicon–doesn’t even exist. But it’s based on the legends and myths of three books that do.

Comparing the Zombie Dog Experiments of 1940 and 2005

Entertainment, Science

The Ghost Diaries has been thinking a lot about BLOOD recently and we’ve uncovered some rather macabre projects that should leave you sufficiently curdled. Experiments on dead dogs, computers that bleed, gardens fertilized with blood meal! Today we’re focusing on the dead dog experiments of 1940 and 2005, in Russia and the US respectively. In […]

A Stunning New Case of 9/11 Predictive Programming

Conspiracy, Entertainment

Predictive programming is the idea that society embeds messages into pop culture media and other modes of transmission in order to psychologically prepare and incubate the general population for certain events. It is, of course, a conspiracy theory, but one that has garnered a lot of attention in recent years, especially among false flag advocates. […]

Creepy Vintage Photos of MUMMIES!

Entertainment

Mummy unwrapping ceremonies used to occur fairly regularly. For Victorians and 1950s German academics, it was actually a form of entertainment. Held in lecture halls and universities, mummy unwrapping parties became morbid high brow academic ceremonies fusing the latest archeological discoveries of the time with the public’s own twisted love of the dead and grotesque.
