Hex Hollow Murder House

Hex Hollow Murder House

2020-10-2943:342

The 1928 murder of a Dutch faith healer led to not only one of Pennsylvania’s last witch trials, but one of the state’s most haunted homes.
A psychic appears on a local talk show and predicts a serial killer's Halloween massacre on a college campus. That campus is your campus — and as the Halloween “fun” begins, you can only hope you're strong enough to change the grisly fate the psychic foretold.
The place that inspired Japanese horror film, "The Ring," and its American remake, the Himeji Castle is Japan's largest surviving castle. It's home to not just six hundred years of history, but the ghost of a serving girl still seeking revenge on her master.

Urban Legends: Cropsey

2020-10-1329:402

In the 1970s and ‘80s, teens in Staten Island were terrified by the legend of Cropsey: an escaped mental patient who roamed the woods and had a penchant for kidnapping and murdering innocent children. Some say Cropsey was merely a campfire tale… but he may actually be based on a terrifyingly real criminal.
St. Mary’s Church

St. Mary’s Church

2020-10-0840:524

High on a hill in Clophill, England lies Old St. Mary’s, a 14th century church now in ruins. Though it was once the center of Clophill’s religious activity, it’s now a place of ghostly apparitions and mysterious occult rituals… lending it the nickname, “Black Magic Church.”

Maple Hill Park

Maple Hill Park

2020-10-0140:277

Alabama’s Maple Hill Cemetery was established in the 1800s and is the burial ground for many controversial figures in the state’s history. But right next door is a small playground, said to be haunted by ghosts of slain children who can’t wait to play with you.
Woodchester Mansion

Woodchester Mansion

2020-09-2441:294

This Gloucester manor house was abandoned midway through construction. The workers left without even bothering to pick up their tools—so it has a strange, unfinished air about it. And that’s before you begin wondering why everyone left in such a hurry.
La Casa Matusita

La Casa Matusita

2020-09-1745:505

This haunting began with the story of an immigrant arriving in Peru. According to the legend, he caught his wife in bed with another man and murdered them both. This act of violence was only the first in a long line of dramatic—and horrifying—events that changed the house forever.
Ocean Born Mary House

Ocean Born Mary House

2020-09-1042:526

The story of Mary's birth is legendary, and that legend has come to rest in the house that bears her name. It's a tale of the high seas, with pirates, buried treasure... and a woman who lingers in her home long after her own demise.
Shaniwar Wada

Shaniwar Wada

2020-09-0343:004

Built in the 18th century, this Indian fortress has borne witness to family conflict, death, and betrayal. A structure built for war always shows echoes of its tortured past… Even if the current building is only a hollowed-out husk of its former glory.
This Kentucky Honky Tonk has had a long and storied history. Rumors say that it was a speakeasy during prohibition, and a slaughterhouse after that. But none of the murders and tragedy surrounding the building explain the horrors that reside in the venue's basement…
Letchworth Village

Letchworth Village

2020-08-2039:404

Built in the early 20th century, this mental institution for children was founded on the flawed principles of eugenics. The poor hygiene, abuse, and suffering that children endured there left a permanent scar on what remains of this New York facility.
Toyama Park

Toyama Park

2020-08-1342:482

It offers beautiful views of cherry blossoms and the surrounding cityscape… So why is this park in Tokyo’s Shinjuku district known for phantom sightings and eerie voices carried by the wind? Perhaps being the resting place for the anonymous victims of Japan's greatest atrocities has something to do with it...
Mary King’s Close

Mary King’s Close

2020-08-0641:174

Once a bustling neighborhood in Edinburgh, Mary King's Close is now a subterranean museum. When your neighborhood is so closed in that you can't even see the sun, it's no wonder that stories of murder and hauntings abound.

I've lost my patience for this podcast. Almost every story is the same, with stories being invented in the same mold over and over. While many places are claimed to be haunted, not every haunting incedent is the same! Yet this podcast has you thinking they are...
