Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: They found the first body stuffed inside the church library's closet. Then a second body turned up. It’s the creepy case of Theo Durrant – better known in San Francisco as the Demon of the Belfry. (Demon of the Belfry) *** In 1989 a man anonymously claimed he had worked at Area 51 where alien technology was being reverse-engineered for the Pentagon. It sounded like the crazed thoughts of a madman at the time. But now, thirty years later, it does not seem so absurd. (Bob Lazar, The Pentagon, And UFOs) *** One of our Weirdo family members tells the true story of a young child told not to be sad when her grandfather passes away… before anyone knew he had died. (The Old Woman In The Basement) *** Some very strange things have been taking place in Sedona Arizona – including ghosts, UFOs, and even people supposedly seeing living dinosaurs. (Strangeness at the Bradshaw Ranch) *** Is it possible that the reason Jack The Ripper was never caught, is because he was only visiting London at the time and then returned to his home in Missouri, USA? (Was Jack The Ripper From St. Louis?) *** 
It’s a story called “Murder Without Motive”.

There’s a lesser-known but significantly more dangerous triangle near Area 51 in Nevada. (2,000 People Go Missing In The Nevada Triangle) *** Werewolves being spotted in Wisconsin have been reported as far back as 1936. Then again in 1964 and 1972. But there had been nothing like the reports that came out of the area near Delavan, starting in 1989. (The Bray Road Beast) *** A teen finds two dead bodies, side by side, both wearing raincoats. But the disturbing thing is that both dead men were wearing lead masks. And that’s not the end of the strangeness. (The Case of the Lead Masks) *** A woman sees something so horrifying she turns the rest of her life over to Jesus Christ so she will remain protected.

In June of 1975 we were exposed to one of the scariest movies ever made. For this podcaster, it’s just not Independence Day until I watch it – and you still can’t get me to swim in the ocean. We’ll look at what made ‘Jaws’ so successful… and so frightening. We’ll also look at the true story of a string of shark attacks in 1916 that inspired the novel and the film. And while 1975’s ‘Jaws’ was inspired by a series of shark attacks but greatly fictionalized, the film ‘Open Water’ from 2003 is based on a very real and terrifying story. But the truth behind the movie is a dark mystery that goes way beyond the horror of what you see in the film. We’ll look at several other real shark attacks that are almost too incredible to believe, and also try to answer the question as to why shark attacks don’t happen more often as you would expect them to, seeing as humans should be easy pickings.TRANSCRIPT FOR THIS EPISODE…Find a full or partial transcript at the bottom of this blog post: https://weirddarkness.com/archives/6801SUPPORT THE PODCAST…Become a patron: https://WeirdDarkness.com/WEIRDOVisit the Weird Darkness store: https://WeirdDarkness.com/STOREFind my social media, email and contact info: https://WeirdDarkness.com/CONTACTSTORY AND MUSIC CREDITS/SOURCES…(Over time links can and may become invalid, disappear, or have different content.)“The True Darkness of Open Water” by Erin McCann for Ranker: https://tinyurl.com/y8vaqgra “The Real-Life Inspiration for ‘Jaws’” by Christopher Klein for History: https://tinyurl.com/yb5s35xc “The Horror of ‘Jaws’” by Jackie Flynn Mogensen for Mother Jones: https://tinyurl.com/y2mxf8us, Andrew Housman for ScreenRant: https://tinyurl.com/yae8ohh6, Meagan Navarro for Bloody Disgusting: https://tinyurl.com/y7p8q9lw, Tim Donnelly for the New York Post: https://tinyurl.com/y9twrcc7, and Rachel Paige for Hello Giggles: https://tinyurl.com/ycdlb6je“Real Shark Attacks” by Charles W.

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: When it comes to the religious practice of snake-handling, sometimes God holds back the snake. Sometimes, He sends you to heaven. (Slithering Preacher Killer) *** The idea of waking up each day with no memory of the previous day makes for a humorous scenario in Hollywood – such as the film “50 First Dates”. But the real thing is not nearly as laughable. (The Scary Reality of Anterograde Amnesia) *** If you visit Central Michigan University you’ll see intelligent students, friendly staff, experienced professors, and… if you’re not careful… a few undead alumni. (The Haunts of Central Michigan University) *** The bell rings, you answer the door, and you are met by two young boys. A normal event in the life of everyday people – but have those children on your doorstep ever had jet black eyes? (Real Accounts of BEK) *** A woman makes the mistake of letting one of these children into her home… and now she is dying. (I Let The Black Eyed Kids Inside, Now I’m Dying) *** More and more, reports are coming in about the after-effects of meeting BEKs – even years after the encounter. (BEKs and Cancer) *** Most BEK encounters are the children trying to get into your home – but there’s also a story of a normal child going door-to-door and one those doors is answered by a black-eyed adult!

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: Scrying is the act of gazing into a reflective or translucent object to open your intuition. This supposedly allows the scryer to gain information they may not have access to normally inside their conscious mind. Often the object used for this is the often seen, but often misunderstood crystal ball. (Little Known Secrets Of The Crystal Ball) *** 
Five hundred years ago, Europe saw its first rhinoceros in more than a thousand years. Well, sort of. In reality, it was an accidental fake. (Dürer's Rhinoceros) *** A physics paper proposes neither you nor the world around you are real. If that’s true, then does that mean you’re not actually listening to this podcast? (What If I Only Think I’m Real?) *** When it comes to mythical monsters, the dragon seems to have never lost its celebrity. Dragons have always been popular – not just on multi-million-dollar cable channels and blockbuster movies, but in games, posters, artwork, and tales young and old, generation over generation, in just about every culture. (Dragons and Dragon Kings) *** An extra-marital affair in 1812 resulted in a pregnancy, and a murder. And evidence of the term “sins of the father” also comes into play.

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: Like many desolate places, the Arctic has its share of ghost stories and haunted legends floating around the frigid, wild areas of its domain. It might be the frights rather than the cold that gives you goosebumps. (Ghostly Shivers of the Arctic Circle) *** Weirdo family member Joy Cruz remembers something her mother told her as a child… and it quite possibly saved her soul. (I’ve Seen The Devil) *** You never know what might be lurking just out of sight – in the shadows, behind a door. I’ll share a few true stories that might make you double-check the locks at night and check the closet before going to bed. (Never Trust The Dark) *** A 5-year-old boy having the time of his life at a carnival suddenly goes missing – and when found later there is no evidence whatsoever as to how he got where he was, who took him there, or what happened to him before he was found. (The Disturbing Case of Little Stephen McKerron) *** When you think of the Salem Witch Trials, you typically think of women being burned at the stake, innocently accused of witchcraft. There are two incorrect assumption about that mental picture. First, most of the accused were hung, and none have been truly verified to be burned alive. And second, sorcery and Satan worship were not seen to be bound by gender, and so either a man, woman, boy, or girl could be a witch. And one of those unfortunate men was Giles Corey – but his punishment went beyond the norm, and into the gruesome.

Stephanie Scissom writes of when a circus unexpectedly arrived in a small city, and along with the fun, merriment and laughter, there was a dark, dreary, and dangerous element. It’s “When The Circus Came to Town.” And, an author who goes by the alias 5yn brings a story of what happened on the set of History’s show, “Alone” - something that they covered up. It’s no wonder he’s writing under an assumed name. The story is simply called, “Alone.”TRANSCRIPT FOR THIS EPISODE…(Sorry, no transcripts are available for this episode, but links to the text version of both stories narrated in this episode can be found in the story credits below.)MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE…Weird Darkness “AfterWORD” = “God, Ghosts and Aliens”: https://youtu.be/QV7y1OqAEAU SUPPORT THE PODCAST…Become a patron: https://WeirdDarkness.com/WEIRDOVisit the Weird Darkness store: https://WeirdDarkness.com/STOREFind my social media, email and contact info: https://WeirdDarkness.com/CONTACTSTORY AND MUSIC CREDITS/SOURCES…(Over time links can and may become invalid, disappear, or have different content.)“When The Circus Came to Town” by Stephanie Scissom: https://tinyurl.com/y7slhth9 “Alone” by 5yn: https://tinyurl.com/ybcllfpnWeird Darkness theme by Alibi Music Library.

Thank you!IN THIS EPISODE: “The devil made me do it.” It’s an excuse that has been used so often by so many that it has lost its meaning, and its effectiveness. So only a fool or a madman would commit a horrible act and then try to blame it on the devil or a demon… unless, of course, that person truly believes that is exactly what happened to them. (A Demon Made Me Do It) *** The little Norwegian village of Bærum Verk still stands as an old foundry settlement, and is an active place, both as a place to work, and as a place to live – and as a place to keep living even after you’re dead. (The Most Haunted Village in Norway) *** When John and Eva were married they told their relatives that they planned to honeymoon on the Atlantic coast, but John had another plan, and it would not be his last deception. But it would be the first act in what ended up being a mystery that has still gone unsolved to this day. (The Lawrenceburg Shanty-Boat Mystery) *** There are more than a few stories from upright citizens around the world who claim to have seen tiny humans. I’m not talking about the diminutive human beings we used to classify as dwarves or midgets until we became more enlightened. I’m talking about short, maybe two-foot tall, perfectly proportioned people.

Imagine a young mother coming home late one night after a trip to the ER for a minor illness. The next day she is missing. That is just the beginning of the strange and unsettling case of Charlotte Pollis. (The Disappearance of Charlotte Pollis) *** There was a time when people would get married in cemeteries – not because they were goth or because they loved the macabre surroundings, but because they felt it would keep them from getting sick. (Plague Weddings) *** The five pointed star is ubiquitous. We learn to draw it in grade school, teachers draw it on our test papers to show we’ve done a good job – but turn the star upside down and suddenly it becomes mysterious, and strange… it become a pentagram. Why does the pentagram hold so much power over some people? And what are the secrets it holds? (Secrets of the Pentagram) *** It’s a supernatural creature that appears at night to travelers. If you see a white one, it is there to protect you from harm and help you along your journey. If you see a black one, it is there to kill you.

But if you believe what fighter pilot George F. Gorman says, you’ll believe there are some giant holes in the U.S. Government’s story. Because Gorman ended up in an aerial battle with one of those so-called “weather balloons”. (The Gorman Dogfight) *** A passerby found scraps of paper on the ground, implicating that one of the areas most prominent families was harboring a secret – that the husband had his own wife imprisoned in their own home for months on end – unable to leave her own bedroom. But that was just the beginning of the story. (Imprisoned In Her Own Room By Her Husband) *** In the wilds of Africa it is said there is a man-like creature, human in every way aside from one – the being has no head. (Beware The Headless Blemmy) *** The most famous being the Grim Reaper, dark hooded entities seems to be relatively common in the reports of ghost-like beings. They can be intimidating, foreboding, and downright terrifying. One man’s experience didn’t stop with only one encounter – they haven’t stopped at all. (The Black Hooded Figure That Haunts Me) *** A couple have a fight, one of them leaves the home to cool off. It’s something that happens every day in every town and city. It’s simply how some couples have to work through things. But in one case, 32 years later, the woman who left to cool off has yet to return, and her family is still waiting.

a great adcast, brilliant if you love advertisements and stupid made up reddit stories, I do not so I'm finally unsubbing. I gave it 6 months because I love paranormal stuff but this podcast has annoyed me everytime I listened.
