A ‘Whopper’ of a New Star for Halloween 2015



Halloween is that time of year when we all get to be a little weird.

We get to dress up and play pretend and if your of the right age (and sometimes not), you can go door to door for sugar drenched sweets that have no nutritional value and if you believe the legends could also be poisoned as well.

Everything in moderation is good including the strange and the horrifying but sometimes these things can go too far.

The ‘Halloween Whopper‘ from fast food monolith Burger King and the rampant press over the fact that the specialty burger can make one’s poop turn green is one such example of this sort of indulgence taken beyond it’s proper limit.

For instance, you cab now attend the Halloween party of your choice dressed not as a ghost, witch or black cat, but also as the burger in question along with it’s green aftermath.


Singer Kerry Katona is Haunted by Ghosts?


Thirty-Four Year old Kerry Katona, who sings in the all girl pop group Atomic Kitten, has recently stated that she she thinks she is experiencing a haunting.

Believing the situation to be serious, the pop star got her house in Oxfordshire cleansed by a psychic medium.

The paranormal events taking place in the residence even mimicked the infamous Amityville Horror when Katona kept finding large amounts of flies in her home.

Thankfully, these flies did not create too much of a buzz as they were dead, but that still did not make Katona feel any safer, as she feels it is a bit more personal:


Ghost Pic From Unknown Haunted Venue

A paranormal ghost hunting group known as the Norfolk Ghost Hunters were in a reputedly haunted location when they captured the anomaly on the right.

Due to the venue still being used regularly, including many events that include children, the name and location of the building was not disclosed.

However, what we seem to have here is an almost full bodied apparition among the rows of pews at a church, which if you know your ghostly lore churches and other holy sites are great place to find ghosts and other paranormal activity.

Still as impressive as this ghost photo is, if you have ever read many of the articles here you will be quite aware that we will always look at things with a slightly skeptical eye, unless it is a reader submitted story.


Vampire Cat Takes ‘Bite’ Out Of Internet

Cats and the internet.

They go together like bread and butter, milk and cereal and any internet based comment page and incessant trolling.

Now we have a cat named Loki who while not the brother of Thor and as far as I know is not a megalomaniac dictator,he does have the teeth of the un-dead.

This week, Loki has become a internet sensation, but there is an account in Japanese folklore of an actual vampire cat…


Baby Monitor Picks up Ghost?

This one will be short and sweet because honestly this is just a horrible example of a possible paranormal capture.

First of all the video quality is atrocious and secondly there are so many explanations for this slight anomaly in the video that it boggles the mind that anyone buys this stuff. It could be a bug close to the camera, it could be a reflection from something (a crib mobile?) it could be Elvis returned from the dead to make a new album.

Even most of the comments posted on the You Tube link below say this is either fake or even worse most can’t even spot the ‘ghost’ content in the video at all.


But here it is in all of its…ahem…glory:

Ghost Pic taken at Norwich Cathedral?

Norwich Cathedral, completed in 1145 A.D. has reportedly been haunted for years and now it seems there is some photographic evidence to back up those claims.

Stories of objects moving by themselves and other paranormal activity have been observed and the cathedral is a stop on many local ghost tours.

The photo, taken by Kerry Launders, shows what looks like a figure in the traditional garb of a Bishop.

Launders insists the snap shot is genuine, not a hoax and she did not notice the spooky figure at the time the picture was taken:


Did this ‘Haunted Puppet’ Move on Video?

Haunted dolls and puppets are very popular in our culture.

We have the infamous Annabelle, who when not terrifying people is kept in the Warren ‘Museum,’ to that crazy creepy clown from the original Poltergeist film, these former playthings of children have become the stuff on nightmares.

It makes sense that the paranormal world would latch onto dolls at times for it’s muses because some dolls and puppets can indeed look downright creepy. There is a even a specific phobia for this fear of dolls called pediophobia and for their stringing up counterparts there is Pupaphobia.

Of course, the above phobias are a real psychological condition, while most of the legends surrounding the other haunted toys are probably only real in our imaginations.

However, a British paranormal investigator who specializes in haunted dolls says she has captured one particular puppet moving on it’s own on video.


No Ghost: Woman Finds Ex Was Living in Her Attic


Being haunted is hard, but break ups are harder.

Only in the world of the paranormal and the just plain weird would such events collide but that is just what they did when a woman in Rock Hill, South Carolina discovered that she did not have a ghost in her house, but rather her ex-boyfriend who had kept himself hidden in her house’s attic for two weeks.


You Have Till August 24th to Live According to ‘Satan’ (Updated/Debunked?)

*Update at bottom of post, the pic used has been debunked, which does not bode well for this whole story, plus honestly from the get go it has not been published by any other ‘major’ source online.*

What image pops up in your head when you think of Satan, the lord of darkness, master of fear and deception?

Horns, red skin, tail and a goatee?

What about what looks like the illegitimate love child of Marilyn Manson and Vampira with too much eye make up?

According to one Ashton Black of Tampa, Florida, he is now Satan and we all have till August, 24th, 2015 to accept him as our master or we all die.

All because he encountered the man himself when he walked into a pay day loan store.

You can’t make stuff like this up, read on if you want to live…


Birkwood Castle Destroyed By Ghosts?

Birkwood Castle, located  in  Lanarkshire, Scotland is reputed to be one of the most haunted locations in the UK.

Built in 1860, the castle became a psychiatric hospital in 1923 and was used as such until 2002. The building also had facilities for working with mentally disabled children.

Incidents reported at the location include a doctor who died of a heart attack at the hospital being spotted in a window from outside, footsteps heard down the corridors, a boy reportedly named ‘Mike’ or ‘Micheal’ riding a bike on the property as well as being the near the stairwell where he fell to his death, smells of cigar smoke and lights being turned on and off while the hospital was still in service and the ghost of one Henrik Richardson, who was said to have been stabbed in throat and died from that injury while at the location.

The castle was going to be turned into a leisure center in 2011 but that fell through.

In 2014 Birkwood Castle was featured on the television series Haunted Planet.

Recently the castle was undergoing renovations to be turned into a hotel and some apartments…that is until the ghostly residents of Birkwood decided this was not going to happen and instead destroyed Birkwood instead.
