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 […]

Disney Détournement: Cory Doctorow’s Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom

Feature pic by Broly1337 For anyone who’s dreamt of going to Disney World and never leaving, Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom (2003) is the book for you. Cory Doctorow’s increasingly relevant novel is a precious literary artifact, functioning as a potent science fiction missive, a satirical challenge to copyright laws, and as a […]

Dark Matter May Produce Life and Create a Parallel Universe

By Jake Anderson Dark matter and dark energy are already two of the most enigmatic concepts in all of science. They just grew even more puzzling. Cosmologists are saying they may have discovered a second type of dark matter that is not diffuse and can interact with itself. The effects of this may have been […]

JFK Conspiracy at 50: Did Kennedy’s Interest in UFOs Get Him Killed?

Last year, the month of November marked the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination, as well as the 50th birthday of one of the greatest conspiracy theories of all time.

Ti West: Burgeoning Master of Subtle Horror

Post by Billy Russell One of the freshest directors working in horror movies these days is Ti West. His movies are unique in that he cherishes suspense almost as much as a pay-off. It’s refreshing to see a filmmaker take pride in fear-making and not just the amount of blood that can feasibly be made […]

How to Find Out Who Died In Your Home

The new website DiedinHouse.com is a pretty marvelous concept, though it’s hard to imagine most people using it for anything besides ghoulish, morbid delight. What adolescent hasn’t pondered the souls who once lived in his childhood home, wondering if someone died in the very room in which he now fantasizes about women on a daily […]

Did Philip K. Dick Discover the Matrix?

Towards the end of his life, sci-fi master Philip K. Dick suffered from mental health ailments. Dick himself had always believed in a plurality of realities (‘pluriform pseudo worlds’), and didn’t necessarily consider schizophrenic visions to be insane. To delve into these issues would be to take on the entire 20th century psychiatric empire, which […]

Young Ghost Hunter Spends a Night at the Waverly Hills Sanitorium

The Ghost Diaries recently received an email requesting we put eyeballs on a ‘ghost’ photo. The email seemed to be from a young ghost hunter, or perhaps even a cabal of young ghost hunters at the Floyd Central High School in Southern Indiana. We were referred to an article published in The Bagpiper Online, the […]

The Scariest Halloween Costumes Ever Pt. 2

Last year, we did a post on the scariest halloween costumes ever…which you should check out! Since then, we have found even more creepy costumes to whet your whistle. We find it fascinating how much freakier costumes were back in the day. Were people really that much more deranged back then? Was it a reflection […]

Walking Dead Season 4 Premiere–Half-Breeds and an Evil Harvest??

The Ghost Diaries missed the season 4 premiere of The Walking Dead. Why? That’s a question for the ages, with an answer laced in expletives. But we watched it tonight and were pleasantly surprised. One of our chief season 3 complaints was lack of zombie action in some of the episodes. That was quickly rectified […]

Christopher Columbus: America’s First Serial Killer

The title of this is provocative but true, and we’re launching our serial killer section with it. Today, America celebrates the life of its first mass serial killer, Christopher Columbus. Most schoolchildren are taught early in school that Columbus is some kind of hero–the man who discovered America. The endurance of this lie in popular […]
