Charlie Noonan's Story of Disappearance and Mysterious Photographs

Early 20th Century

There was a man named Charlie Noonan who used to roam to different places and hear stories from people which of these, urban legends, he sometimes wrote in his book. He used to go to remote areas to collect such unique and horrifying tales. Charlie's wife Ellie would get worried due to her husband walking alone in this way, but Charlie's insistence on her was not going on. The Legend At sometime around 1900's, Noonan met a farmer while searching for mythologies and got to know about a very fascinating testimony about an old woman lives who lived in a remote area north of Oklahoma. The legend was that the old woman is not only a human being but also has a sort of hidden demonic power and was in disguise of a human being. The face of this old woman was always... Read More

Charles Manson, Leader of Murderous Cult, Dead at 83

late 1960s

A career criminal, amateur musician, enigmatic cult leader and unrepentant racist, Manson became synonymous with the dark underbelly and ominous end of the Sixties. The two-day killing spree he orchestrated in August 1969 left seven people dead and, as legend has it, sprang from his mad interpretation of the Beatles' White Album – specifically the song "Helter Skelter" – which he believed foretold a coming apocalyptic race war.A career criminal, amateur musician, enigmatic cult leader and unrepentant racist, Manson became synonymous with the dark underbelly and ominous end of the Sixties.

La Pascualita: The living Dummy

La Pascualita: The living Dummy

March 25th, 1930

For years, the story of La Pascualita has been drawing loads of visitors, including media personalities, from all over Mexico to Chihuahua. Now, people from South America, the US and Europe have also started paying visits to the corpse bride. People smudge their noses up against the shop window, staring at the dummy, trying to figure out if she is real or not. They are taken in by her mesmerizing gaze and realistic-looking features. Most people walk away convinced that she has to be real. La Pascualita or Little Pascuala is a bridal mannequin that has “lived” in a store window in Chihuahua, Mexico for the past 75 years. That is quite a long time for a bridal gown shop to retain a mannequin, but then the dummy has a rather strange history behind... Read More

No Eyes (They Drink My Blood)

No Eyes (They Drink My Blood)

2011

Have you heard the story of the no eyes? It’s a tale that some say is too terrible to tell, but pull your seat closer to the campfire and I will reveal the terrifying legend. The San Bernardino Mountains contain a lot of wilderness regions which saw substantial activity about 100 years ago. Here, miners and loggers worked to bring materials down to the Los Angeles basin. But, like most industries of that time, there was a high profit motive, and workers lives were not as important as they were now. One day, a mine tunnel collapsed, trapping a number of men within. They were able to survive, after a fashion, by drinking water which seeped into the tunnels, eating rats, mushrooms, and their dead co-workers. They worked from within to dig themselves out, confident... Read More

Krampus: The Dark Side of Christmas

2015

Everyone is familiar with the joys of the holiday season, the decorations, the Christmas lights, the tree, the shopping frenzy, the family dinners, the idyllic Christmas movies and Mariah Carey's festive hit All I Want for Christmas. At first it looks like the merry end to the calendar year has no room or possibility to be frightening and to be fertile ground for the horror genre. However, European folklore has several antagonists of the holiday season, the best known being not an enemy but a companion of Saint Nicholas. Nicholas was a 4th century Christian saint and a bishop of Myra (modern day Turkey) who had many miracles attributed to him. He had a reputation for secret gift-giving. The best known legend of his life tells of a poor man who had three daughters... Read More
