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

Entertainment, Horror Movies, Zombies

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

Entertainment, Horror Movies, Lists, Zombies

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

Entertainment, Horror Movies

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

E.S.P, Paranormal, Unexplained

– 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

Entertainment

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

Entertainment, Horror Movies, Lists, Zombies

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.

The Changeling

The Changeling (1980): Subtle Horror Masterpiece

Entertainment, Horror Movies

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 […]

Reincarnated Children and Past Life Memories

E.S.P, Paranormal, Unexplained

The concept of reincarnation has grown from its roots in ancient mysticism to a vibrant cultural meme, recycled and reinvented from generation to generation. Reincarnation, at the very least, suggests a collective human memory bank and powerful cosmic synchronicity. Contemporary views on reincarnation are beginning to transcend stale religious platitudes, which is refreshing for those […]

Evil Dead remake review

Evil Dead Remake: Bloodlust, Gore, and A Dog Named Grandpa

Entertainment, Horror Movies

There’s something decidedly un-scary about a horror movie with a plot that eschews mystery in order to lay out a diabolical, supernatural plan. In Evil Dead, the remake of the beloved cult classic original, The Evil Dead (dropping the titular “The” is about the closest this film gets to original deviation), it’s made clear that […]

Life in the Matrix: New Evidence Supports the Simulation Theory

Science, Unexplained

By Jake Anderson Nick Bostrom has become somewhat of a cult celebrity in fringe circles for his authorship of the Simulation Theory. This theory supposes that because of the overwhelming likelihood of technological singularities occurring in the universe, it is quite likely that advanced civilizations–either us in the future, or aliens in a distant galaxy–have […]

Human DNA Could Contain Signature of Alien Creator

Aliens, Science

By Jake Anderson For decades, scientists have searched in vain for an alien signal to present itself in the depths of space. SETI’s fruitless quest to make contact with an extraterrestrial race has yielded frustration and, increasingly, doubters who use the Fermi Paradox and the Great Silence to argue that we are alone in the […]

4 Reasons You May Soon Be A Killer

Entertainment

We view killers as aliens, the act of killing as some science fiction concept that doesn’t apply to our everyday lives. Yet you kill every day. Every time you mow the lawn, you kill grass. And it actually screams. Yep, it does. That smell of freshly cut grass is actually a distress signal cast off […]

Real Life Vampire Addicted To Human Blood

Vampires

About a month ago the Ghost Diaries stumbled upon an utterly chilling case of a Turkish man who is physically addicted to human blood. In light of all the recent zombie claims due to bath salts, government experiments, etc., we thought a real-life vampire counterpart would make an interesting addition to our chest of paranormal […]
