    Is This Man Literally Haunted By His Past?

    At the age of 64, Harry Ross noticed something peculiar in a family photo. Taken outside Harry’s home in Rothesay, Bute, this photo shows him, his son Andrew, 26, and granddaughters Bonnie, five, and Leah, two. It also shows a mysterious face looking through the window that Harry and his family claim is Harry 42 […]

    Old Mysterious Photos of Shamans, Mystics and Medicine Men

    Throughout prehistoric times and even in some of today’s remote tribal cultures, shamans and ‘medicine men’ have sought to uncover the mysteries of consciousness and the universe. They did so by appealing to spirits in a practice called animism. In many languages, the word for spirit is the same word used for breath. The shaman […]

    The Best Horror and Sci-Fi Sequels

    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 […]

    Shocking Rediscovered Photos from Bohemian Grove!

    The Bohemian Grove lore contains many myths that are assuredly just that–myths. But that hasn’t stopped the place from being one of the most notorious conspiracy hotspots in the world. Claims of everything from baby sacrifice to paranormal activity and alien indoctrination have found a home in the shadows of those creepy Redwoods. Forestlady, writing […]

    Assange Releases WikiLeaks UFO Cable Teaser…and It’s Not What Anyone Expected!

    We are huge believers in the right to information, truth and transparent democracy and, as such, support the WikiLeaks movement. WikiLeaks leader Julian Assange has been (probably) unintentionally tantalizing UFO enthusiasts for years now with rumors of secret cables that may disclose information about ETs in our solar system. However, in the recent “Live People’s […]

The 11 Scariest Dolls Ever Made

There’s nothing quite like a possessed doll to give you nightmares for two consecutive weeks. Let’s face it, dolls are creepy as hell, especially old, raggedy dolls that smell like lighter fluid. Their glassy eyes reflect images and memories of unspeakable horror, yet their faces remain expressionless, content. Below we present to you the scariest […]

Best Time Travel Movies of the Millennium

We have an obsession with time travel. Timeslips are pretty cool too. But despite what you’ve seen on YouTube, when it comes to traveling through time we’re limited to fiction for the time being. We know the classics—The Time Machine, Planet of the Apes, The Terminator franchise, Time Bandits, Back to the Future 1 and […]

Long-Awaited AI Directed Horror Film Full Of Zombie Cliches

Every once in a while a film comes along that is so ground-breaking, so cinematically revolutionary, so awe-inspiringly vital that all you can do is sit back, take a deep breath, and say “wow.” The Future Dead is not one of those films. Despite the fever pitch fanfare and sociological hysteria accompanying the release of […]

Memento Mori: Victorian Death Photos

Death…it is an unavoidable part of life. Yet in modern human culture it’s a taboo subject, discussed only when necessary, and even then usually only in hushed whispers. Americans in particular are devoted to perpetuating the fantasy that you can stay young forever and live indefinitely, the narrative of eternal life scribed by theologians, who […]

New Bizarre Twists in the Macabre Case of Elisa Lam

A few months ago, we reported on the incredibly creepy and gruesome case of Elisa Lam, a Canadian tourist who was found in a water tank at the top of the infamous Cecil Hotel, a hotel well known to have housed two serial killers and a myriad of strange deaths and suicides. The facts of […]

The Best Campy Horror Films on Netflix Streaming

Guest post by Billy Russell To preface this list, let me clarify that not every film discussed below is necessarily “campy”. It’s more that they remind me of a time in my childhood that was somewhat trashy. These are all horror movies that are great in their own ways and specifically appeal to the camp […]

Nightmare Death Syndrome, bangungot, Strikes Again

By Jake Anderson The Japanese call it pok-kuri. Filipinos call it bangungot or batibat. For the Hmong people of Vietnam and Laos, it is the tsob tsuang. Taiwanese men, some of whom wear lipstick to bed in order to deceive nocturnal ghosts, claim it is the phi am or ‘widow ghost’, a malevolent spirit who, […]

The Ten Greatest Horror Films Of All Time

Guest post by Jamie Naqvi The Ghost Diaries is always in search of opinionated writers willing to definitively state the way things are. Few tasks could be harder for an inspired cineaste and horror fan than to narrow down the entire genre down to just 10 films, but writer/filmmaker Jamie Naqvi has done so. Without […]

17 Creepy Ventriloquist Photos

Like the Ouija board, ventriloquism has a downright creepy history. In ancient times, it was believed that chosen prophets could communicate with spirits of the dead by means of ventriloquism. By producing sounds with the stomach (rather than by mouth), these prophets would utter words without moving their lips, and onlookers believed the sounds came […]

World War Z Review: Martial Law, UN Militants and Zombies!

We found ourselves pleasantly surprised–moderately shocked, actually–at the movie theater Friday evening: World War Z wasn’t a complete piece of shit. In fact, for a PG-13 rated Hollywood-commandeered adaptation of a violent zombie novel, it was an above average summer blockbuster and a possible honorable mention on our Best Zombie Movies of All Time list.
