    Memories Are Passed On Through DNA: How Is this Not ‘Paranormal’?

    Scientists recently announced the discovery that memories seem to be passed down through the generations through DNA. “The experiences of a parent, before even conceiving offspring, markedly influence both structure and function in the nervous system of subsequent generations.” At first mention, one may think to oneself: okay, this makes sense, big deal. But actually […]

    Oculus, A Great Drive-in Movie

    Guest post by Billy Russell Going to the ol’ drive-in is still one of the most fun ways to experience a movie. You don’t go to the drive-in if you’re obsessively concerned with having the best possible sound and audio quality surrounding you with such pristine remasterings that any flaw or error will stand out […]

    Dario Argento’s Nightmare Fuel: the Surreal Horror of Suspiria

    *Guest Post by BILLY RUSSELL Much more so than many other “surreal” or “nightmarish” horrors, Suspiria truly captures the feeling of being trapped in a bad dream and being unable to awaken from it.

    Passenger from MH Flight 370 Sends Photo/Metadata from Diego Garcia!

    We had a feeling this one wasn’t over yet. The incredible media attention to the Malaysian Flight 370 mystery has yielded a shocking new revelation. We already knew that the United States had a military base, DIEGO GARCIA, in the Indian Ocean near where the plane may have gone down. New information has surfaced from […]

    Creepy Vintage Photos of MUMMIES!

    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.

Habit3

From the VHS Vault: Habit (1995)

There’s just something about thrift store finds. You see something on tape with a bizarre cover and a semi-promising recommendation from Roger Ebert on the front explaining that it’s a realistic vampire movie, whatever that means. But, since the price tag on it is $0.99, it’s not much of a gamble. If it sucks, chuck […]

Satanic and Masonic Occult Symbols Right In Front of Us

The New York-based Satanic Temple recently submitted their designs to the Oklahoma State Capitol for a satanic monument. They want their statue to stand alongside the Ten Commandments monument erected in 2012.

Know Your Secret Societies

We recently unveiled our secret society t-shirts! In the process, we realized that the history of secret societies and the interconnections between groups is actually pretty confusing. So we decided to break it down for you… The Knights Templar One of the first historically significant secret societies was the Knights Templar, a Western Christian military […]

Dyatlov Pass Incident

Photos of Chilling Mysteries From Centuries Past

We love old, creepy photos. And there is nothing more creepy than old photos of unsolved mysteries, or the final photos taken of people before their mysterious disappearance. For some reason, snow makes the experience of the photos more visceral; one gets the feeling that the quiet, muzzled landscape, muted by layers of frozen precipitation, […]

Nuclear Blast Shadows from Hiroshima and Nagasaki

On an average day, someone in the world dies every 1.8 seconds. One Mississippi, two Mississi–dead. One Mississippi, two Mississi–dead. Somewhere between 150,000 and 240,000 people died from the atomic bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Many tens of thousands died in the days, weeks and years that followed. More died instantly. In Hiroshima, between 60,000 […]

New York is Home to the Largest Unmarked Gravesite in the U.S.

You won’t find Hart Island on a New York subway map or even in the city’s official bicycling maps. In fact, very few living New Yorkers have ever even caught a glimpse of the area that’s home to the largest mass grave site in the United States. The city of New York has tried to […]

The 4 Possible Types of Parallel Universes…and Can We Visit Them

In the last decade, parallel universes–a thought experiment once reserved for geeks on rainy (or sunny) weekends–has become something of buzzword, up there with dark matter and time travel in its capacity to captivate. It used to be that no one actually believed in parallel universes, they just thought it was cool to think about. […]
