    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 […]

Movie Review: Martin, George Romero’s Forgotten Vampire Film

Guest post by Billy Russell In 1976, sandwiched between Dawn of the Dead and The Crazies, George A. Romero directed a little-known movie called Martin. In some ways, I find Martin to be similar to Francis Ford Coppola’s movie, The Conversation, the other brilliant movie he made in the 1970s between The Godfather, Part II […]

Confessions of a Paranormal Researcher, Part 2: The Ghosts of Slaves

-Guest post by the Banshee The greatest skill I bring to my work with the spirit world is the fact that I have paid attention to the “wages of sin” or the consequences of generations of psychological and physical abuse in my family. So when I am called into a spiritual situation, no matter how […]

Movie Review: V/H/S 2 and the Horror Panopticon

We’re in the Golden Age of the found footage genre. In the empire of the panopticon, horror movies thrive off 24/7 street surveillance, surgical cameras, security cameras, microscopic cameras, smartphones, webcams, etc. We live in a hunted, stalked society, consumed and regurgitated like a freshly turned zombie’s black bile. Cameras are everywhere–watching our carefully scripted […]

The 40 Best Zombie Movies Ever Made: Part Two

It’s hard to explain why we love zombie movies so much. It’s more than the fear or the gore. It’s more than the camp or the B-movie nostalgia. There’s just something fundamentally exciting, almost poetic, about the idea of the undead chasing down living humans and eating them alive. And more importantly, there’s something both […]

The Purge

Movie Review: The Purge

Guest Post by Billy Russell The premise in The Purge is a pretty original one: For twelve hours in one day of the year, all crime is legal. Because of this, all Americans have the opportunity to purge their sins without legal repercussion and violent crime is at an all-time low. Things are going well […]

Confessions of a Paranormal Researcher Pt. 1

– Guest Post by the Banshee Anyone who tells you that he or she is a “paranormal expert” should probably not be trusted. This might be a strange way to start a series of posts on The Ghost Diaries about my own paranormal work and research. Call me way too traditional, but I do not […]

Time Travel Vs Space Travel

We humans are fond of asking hypothetical questions. Sometimes these come in the form of torturous, disgusting ultimatums: would you rather make out with a drugged warthog for half an hour or live in a sewer for a week? Or in the form of potential superpowers: would you rather have the ability to fly or […]

The 40 Best Zombie Movies Ever Made: Part One

You asked for it and we’re delivering the goods. We’ve watched over 150 zombie movies in order to compile this list. We nearly lost our minds in the process. And yes, this includes many different types of zombies. Whether they’re infected with a virus, or turned undead by a voodoo curse or radioactive goo, as […]

The Changeling (1980): Subtle Horror Masterpiece

A ghost story is a hard one to manage. As far as concocting a scary story for a horror movie, it’s easy for a movie about a haunting to slip into utter ridiculousness as each scare, by formulaic definition, must top the last one until, at the very end of the movie, anything that once […]
