Happy Thanksgiving, Creeps and Peepers! Much thanks for all of our fans, Robert's and Annabelle's! On today's show, Dan takes us all to one of the strangest places we have ever gone on Scared to Death, The Island of the Dolls. Why in the world would a man just up and leave him family to live, alone and secluded, on an island that he then COVERS in dolls? After years of living on the island, why does this man turn up dead? What have others discovered when visiting The Island of the Dolls? Are the dolls alive? Possessed? Is it all in their imaginations? From Mexico City, Dan takes us to Colorado. More specifically, we are going to Riverdale Road. This road is know by many to be extremely haunted. Listen to Dan share a tale of three credible witnesses who are lured in by the spirit of women with a decaying face, a woman who tries to burn them alive.  Lynze pulls us back to more traditional stories. She also starts in Mexico and shares a long standing family story from a fan. Carrying on the theme of family stories, Lynze shares a tale from Donna, Dan's little sister, and her creepy kids. In both stories, we are left to wonder if kids are more prone to see ghosts and if so, why?  Thank you for continuing to send in your stories, Creeps and Peepers! Please keep doing so.

TW: This first story is graphic in every way.  For the first time in Scared To Death history, NO ANNOUNCEMENTS! Woohoo! Kicking it right off with the good stuff, Dan dives into the story of The Haunting of Doris Bither which was the inspiration for the 1978 novel and the 1983 movie, The Entity. It's an interesting and well documented story. How would you react if 30 people crammed into your bedroom and witnessed the paranormal activity you had been claiming was ruining your life? Does that make it real? Listen in to hear this juicy and tragic tale! In Dan's second tale, he explores the possibility of a supposed Ghost Ship, the Mary Celeste. That's not a ship haunted by ghosts but rather, a ship that is found out at sea with no signs of life or death!  In Lynze's half of the show, she shares not two but three tales this week! She starts out with a story that will make you think about how old a ghost might be and if ghosts come back to visit on the anniversary of their deaths. In story number two, we head up to visit our friends in Canada to hear the story of The Raven House, a house that might make you wonder if good ghosts and bad ghosts have some kind of relationship in their world. Can a good ghost protect you from a bad ghost? In the final story of the show, Lynze brings back a favorite kind of spirit, the jinn (also, djinn).  Thank you for continuing to send in your stories, Creeps and Peepers! Please keep doing so.

"Just then on the opposite side of my room, I watched this dark, smoky, human-like form crawl up my wall, each step it took made a tsssss (like water on a frying pan sound) and smoke was coming from each hand and foot connection with my wall." This week Dan takes from England to Malaysia, such a fun show! To kick off the show, Dan shares an old but interesting tale from Raynham Hall. Did a pair of photographers catch The Brown Lady (it's a reference to her dress!) ascending the stairs? Can it really be proven? What happens when its been centuries of people seeing a ghost; does it make it more possible. Lynze really buys into the idea that this ghost is real. From there, we pop over to Malaysia to learn the folkloric tale of the penanggalan- a bodyless woman whose insides trail behind her as she attacks her victims. Is she real? Listen as two very logical people have a strange and frightening encounter with what they believe to be a penanggalan. In the back half of the show, Lynze has one heck of a creepy story about something haunting a child. While the story has a slow start make sure you stay tuned for the MAJOR plot twist! After that, let's head over to the forests of Michigan. (This is where all people from Ohio groan. Not the "M" word...) What would you do if you saw an old man in the woods? Would you offer him help or would you GTFO? ALSO! In honor of Veteran’s Day we are making a Bad Magic Productions donation of $10,000 to https://veteransfoodpantry.org/ this month. This money comes from the combination of the Timesuck and Scared to Death Patrons. We’ve been doing for a few years on Timesuck - so happy to be doing here now as well. Thank you Roberts and Annabelles! We are so proud and grateful to be able to come together as a community to donate to this incredible cause. Stick around at the end of the show to listen to Dan and Lynze chat more about giving back.  Thank you for continuing to send in your stories, Creeps and Peepers! Please keep doing so.

The Nightmare Man

The Nightmare Man

2020-11-0401:18:5811

"They continued to hear the sounds of footsteps behind them. Getting louder. Gaining on them. Their only source of hope was the soft breeze constantly flowing through from the opposite end. The cool, dry air. Finally - they reached a t-shaped intersection. Which way to turn?" In another fun week of spoopy fun, Dan shares two incredible stories. Our first story takes us to Oregon, just outside of Portland. Two friends take an adventure into a supposedly haunted mental hospital that is home to tunnels that connect to another abandoned building. Do they encounter an angry entity? Do they run into a former patient? Was it all in their heads? For Dan's second tale, it is short and not-so-sweet. Lynze hates the ending of this one; what do you think about an unfinished tale?  In the second half of the show, Lynze takes us to a possible haunting in Bozeman, Montana, in an old forest service lookout. Was it a ghost that entered this space? Was someone sleep walking? And who took the dog out in the middle of the night? For story number two, a fan submission makes us wonder if mirrors truly are a portal for spirits.  Thank you for continuing to send in your stories, Creeps and Peepers! Please keep doing so.

Poveglia Island Haunting

Poveglia Island Haunting

2020-10-2801:18:2810

"She tried to turn to follow him but she couldn’t. She was tied down. She couldn’t move. She could see the dark layout of the tent and cast her eyes around for the unseen presence. 

Then she heard it. 

Coming from right above her left ear, a sound like a drill." A quote from the first of Dan's two stories this week. A supposedly haunted island off the coast of Italy, Poveglia takes us on a journey that makes us question, what CAN a spirit, a doctor no less, do to us, from the other side. A few friends travel to the island in search of fun and get so much more than they bargained for. In Dan's second story of the week, we travel to China to talk about a possible/probably alien abduction. In the listener told stories, Lynze prompts us with a question about how possible it may be to control what you see of the other world. In story number two, Lynze goes far outside of her comfort zone to bring you a story about aliens and the plans they might have for a very special father and daughter.  Thank you for continuing to send in your stories, Creeps and Peepers!

Slit-Mouthed Woman

Slit-Mouthed Woman

2020-10-2101:10:5912

"He ended up taking his sword to her face. He sliced open her cheeks from the corners of her mouth to her ears, and then he asked her, “Who will think you’re beautiful now?” A quote from the first of Dan's two stories this week. This first tale takes us to Japan for a haunting story about the Slit-Mouthed Woman. Once you see her, you are almost guaranteed to die. Or are you? Is there a way to avoid being drawn in by this mysterious woman and losing your life to her? The second story takes us back to Idaho! We are going to Idaho Falls once again. What is going on down there? Is this part of Idaho particularly haunted? Let's find out. For the second half of the show, Lynze shares the occasional three fan stories to switch it up. All of the stories have a similar vibe about unknown entities in various situations, each affecting the listeners in different ways. The final of the three stories is the most disturbing. Do you think that child ghosts could be luring other children to the other side so they might have a forever playmate?  Thank you for continuing to send in your stories, Creeps and Peepers!

"He was in Scarlett’s room in seconds, flinging his door open before bounding down the hall and quickly popping into his daughter’s room where she was sitting up in her bed. And he immediately saw that something was sitting with her..." A quote from our first story. We head to Idaho for both tales today. First, we share some encounters a woman claims she and her family experienced shortly after moving into a Pocatello apartment. Then, we head to Pocatello High School, were security camera footage emerged in 2014 of what appears to be a shadowy humanoid entity. And we share a tale of a former high school custodian encountering something terrible in the band room. Lynze closes out the show by sharing some disturbing listener tales.   Thank you for continuing to send in your stories, Creeps and Peepers! Please keep doing so.

"He thrashed against whatever was holding him, desperately trying to kick himself free. The woman in blue smiled and he then heard what he knew was her voice inside his head. 'Stay…. stay…'” A quote from our second story. For our first tale today, we explore the Cajun legend of the Cauchemar, a specific, demonic spiritual presence believed by some living in and around certain parts of Louisiana to harm them after it invades their dreams. And for the second story, we head to Georgia for tales to stories revolving around the first haunted body of water we’ve talked about so far here on Scared to Death - Lake Lanier.

“Just stay upstairs,” he thought to himself. “Whatever you are, just please stay upstairs...” A quote from today's second of two opening tales! Today's first story is another black-eyed kid encounter story. Kind of. A woman in New Hampshire has claimed to have witnessed two different black-eyed entities on two different occasions. In the next story, we explore the many ghosts of Amherstburg, Ontario. The Canadian town is full of all kinds of alleged paranormal activity and we share several sightings, ending on one particularly in-depth and disturbing story. Lynze closes out the show by sharing two listener-submitted reports of living in haunted homes.   Thank you for continuing to send in your stories, Creeps and Peepers! Please keep doing so.

The Black Door

"Chase began to walk down the hallway. His legs were heavy. He was afraid of what was behind the last door. The black door..." A quote from today's second of two opening tales! Had a great time recording the first episode of the second year of the show. We start with the mysterious disappearances of Charlie Ashmore and Ambrose Bierce.  Then, we explore the dark side of hypnosis. What if you were hypnotized by someone who did not have your best interests in mind? A strange, unnerving hypnosis-related tale awaits you. Lynze closes out the show by sharing another three listener-submitted encounters with the unknown.  Thank you for continuing to send in your stories, Creeps and Peepers! Please keep doing so.

"People who’d known Arnold in life testified over and over that they had seen him walking through the village in the weeks following his documented death..." A quote from today's second of three opening tales! We have a big episode for you today as this week marks the one-year anniversary of the show. Thank you for making this show a success! Our first story covers the legend of Missouri's Zombie Road and includes a few alleged encounters with something terrible. Then we head to Romania and Serbia and dig into tales of the strigoi - cryptid predecessor to tales of modern vampires. For our third story, we head to Italy and share a ghost hunter getting more than he bargained for during a stay at Villa De Vecchi - an abandoned mansion rumored to be one of Italy’s most haunted houses.

Ghost Ship

Ghost Ship

"Then, he felt the air around him get heavier and heavier until it no longer felt like air at all. It felt like water. It felt like he was drowning." A quote from today's first tale. Our first story centers on the haunted history of the RMS Queen Mary - supposedly the world's most haunted ship, currently operating as a hotel in Long Beach, California. How many spirits from its days as a transatlantic liner still haunt its labyrinth of cabins, hallways, and various decks? Our second story is all about "La Pascualita," the world's most infamous mannequin. Is the mannequin possessed? Is it the corpse of a long dead bridal shop's daughter? After these two creepy stories, Lynze shares some intense listener tales of encounters with the unknown.  Thank you for sending in your stories, Creeps and Peepers! Please keep doing so.

The Demon House

The Demon House

2020-09-0201:16:0315

"She claimed to witness the boy walked backwards up a wall all the way to the ceiling…before flipping over and landing on his feet." A quote from today's second tale. Our first story is an exposition of the ritualistic murder of LeRoy Carter, Jr. in San Francisco, California, in 1981. What dark god may he have been sacrificed to? Our second story is a modern haunting classic - the Ammons house aka the House of 200 demons made infamous by Zak Bagans. Hope you like the way I tell this tale. And then Lynze shares a long and eerie listener tale.  Thank you for sending in your stories, Creeps and Peepers! Please keep doing so.

Haunted Asylum

Haunted Asylum

2020-08-2601:03:1818

"...the steam soon revealed a message. She could just make out the finger-scrawled words… “Why did you hurt us?” A quote from today's first tale. Today we open up with two asylum-related paranormal tales. The first comes from Salem, Oregon - the long, haunted history of the facility once called “The Oregon State Hospital for the Insane,” and a recent encounter. Our second story is the urban legend of the Melon Heads. Disturbing folklore coming primarily from Ohio and Michigan. And then Lynze shares two listener tales that are very hard to rationalize away as being anything other than paranormal.  Thank you for sending in your stories, Creeps and Peepers!

The Amityville Horror

The Amityville Horror

2020-08-1901:16:5511

"Kathy wakes up with red welts that have formed a trail from just above her pubic hair to just under her breast. They feel hot to the touch. It was like something had slashed and burned her..." A quote from today's second story. Our first tale is about the Shadow Man - one man's tale of a series of intense encounters that lasted for several years of his childhood. Our second story is one of my favorite paranormal events ever - the basis for the book and movie, The Amityville Horror. The story of the Lutz family's 28 day experience with something evil in a home where the previous family to live there had been murdered by their grown son. And Lynze shares two creepy listener tales.  Thank you for sending in your stories, Creeps and Peepers! Please keep doing so.

The Attic Family

The Attic Family

2020-08-1201:09:2816

"How many more steps until it was directly behind her? Ten? Twelve? She could now see a shadow emerging on the cracked white walls above her..." A quote from today's second story. Our first tale today is the story of former Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal claiming to witness a case of demonic possession while studying at Oxford University in 1994. Our second account is of one woman's encounter with paranormal entities in the attic of her grandmother's home during her final visit to the house after it was condemned. Lynze then closes out the show with some listener tales, including one of the scariest stories I've heard so far. Lots of chills today.  Thank you for sending in your stories, Creeps and Peepers!

Mirrors & Monsters

Mirrors & Monsters

2020-08-0501:04:2114

"...as Angie and Jamal both screamed, their mirror images turned and walked back towards, and then into, their room..."  A quote from today's second story. Both of today's tales involve mirrors. The first story is all about the Mirror Man of the Midnight Mirror Ritual. If you want to perform this ritual, you're braver than we are. The second story is about a young couple bringing home what appears to be an intensely haunted antique. And then Lynze closes out the show with two listener stories, one of which may involve the Wendigo.  Thank you for sending in your stories, Creeps and Peepers! Please keep doing so.

The Haunted Villa Montezuma

The Haunted Villa Montezuma

2020-07-2901:00:3418

"She eventually found herself looking at a set of stairs... down to the basement, she presumed.Then she heard a voice say in her ear, “I wouldn’t go down there, if I were you.” A quote from today's second story. Both of today's tales take place in San Diego, California. The first involves the mysterious death of of Michelle von Emster. Why can't anyone definitively determine how she died? How does one's femur bone end up "whittled?" The next story takes us to San Diego's haunted Villa Montezuma. Did years of séances open a door that has never been closed? And Lynze shares more unsettling listener encounters with the unknown. Thank you for sending in your stories, Creeps and Peepers! Please keep doing so.

Missing Time

Missing Time

2020-07-2201:10:1210

"She quickly realized….  something was circling her and Crina. Something that moved through the woods way faster than a human could..." A quote from today's first tale. We start with a look into Hoia Baciu - Romania's most haunted forest. So many tales of strange disappearances, UFO sightings, paranormal encounters, strange episodes of missing time, and more have been so frequently reported, the forest has acquired the nickname, "The Bermuda Triangle of Romania.” For our second story, we look into the infamous alien abduction of Betty and Barney Hill. Is their tale based on nothing more than false memories induced via hypnosis, or, were they really abducted and examined by extraterrestrials? And then Lynze shares two creepy listener tales.  Thank you for sending in your stories, Creeps and Peepers! Please keep doing so.

These stories were way more intense than I expected, and as a lover of horror, that's saying a lot for me.

6:01 Every babe that weeps at your approach, every woman who cries out 'Dear God, what is that THING,' will echo in your perfect ears. That is what 'to the pain' means. It means I leave you in anguish, wallowing in freakish misery forever.

To the landlord thing, technically the landlord could just say no pets allowed. Would definitely keep people's pets from dying and avoid any awkward conversations about ghosties killing dogs....

Ghost Hunters debunked the "entity" coming in and out. It was a dust mote hanging in front of the security camera blowing with the air.

Good stories. Early episode. A little too much interruptions during storytelling. More actual stories, less after-discussion of what ifs/what you'd do. I skip all that. 😕
