Dan shares a most wild story of creepy Adobe Flash curse being passed around the internet. Then, Dan shares what is possibly a more disturbing tale from Bergen Norway of a Death Valley that holds much lore. Lynze has her standard two tales this week. Her first one is not that scary as you listen but then you see the picture take by the folks exploring this abandoned building and you will freak out. Then, in her last tale of the show,  a fan tale surrounding a legend seems to have lasting affects on one kid from a group of friends who go exploring. Patreon Monthly Donation: Stay tuned! Thank you for continuing to send in your stories, Creeps and Peepers!**Please keep doing so.Send them to mystory@scaredtodeathpodcast.comSend everything else to info@scaredtodeathpodcast.comWant to be a Patron?

Dan's first story is a modern encounter story that fits into the Rules of Appalachia Lore.

Lynze has two truly epic tales this week. Her first one will take you on a rollercoaster ride like no other.

He Was Real

He Was Real

2024-05-0101:14:491

Dan has two excellent scares this week. The first comes from friend of one of our staff. It is CREEPY. What starts off looking like a bad case of sleep paralysis  or nightmares ends up  being a very real case of an encounter with a pair of disturbing entities. Then we have a ghost story from the American Civil War era. Despite taking place over 150 years ago, it was well documented by some local newspapers. It’s a very odd story that is sad and scary. Lynze has three stories this week! She shares a tale about a possible sighting of spear finger on a dark road. Then, she shares with us one of those bizarre stories about time and space not being quite right. Lastly, a military story that left some servicemen beyond scared. Monthly Patreon Donation: This month, on April 23rd, we celebrate World Book Day!

Dan kicks off the show with a real head scratcher. Was a man take by aliens of was he just a man who drank himself into mental illness and then left his family? You be the judge. We go to Cleveland, Ohio for a fun history lesson and then many small stories of the spirits that may still live in Franklin Castle. Then Lynze gives us a different kind of tale that explores Celtic folklore. A young couple is out enjoying a winter hike when they encounter a woman who is just not quite right. Was it a fae? Lastly, we all know imaginary friends can be the makings of a child's mind. But what if they are something more? Summer Camp 2025: The time has come!!!

The first story this week is about a long haul trucker who had quite the night out on the road alone in the middle of heavily forested area on the East Coast. He saw something, a couple somethings, maybe. The creepiness lingers on this one. The the second story is set in the little unincorporated community of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, located just outside of Terre Haute. A small Roman Catholic liberal arts college, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods is supposedly haunted by the spirit of a faceless nun. The back half of the show features two tales. The first is about the hat man but not how we are used to seeing him and not acting as he normally does. Is it possible that the hat man can find us in our waking hour and be of help to us? Then, a final story about a cryptid we  met back in  an episode in the first year of the show by the same name, the rake. This fan encounter will leave you feeling twitchy. Summer Camp 2025: The time has come!!!

The reason they shit those kids there because the kids here in Louisiana are a bunch of bad asses and they kept escaping the juvenile detention center. So they were like you wanna act wrong? We're gonna put you with the grown men.

In Dan's first story leaving probably wouldn't have helped anyway, not if they took the frame with them. And it's possible the spirit could have attached itself to the family instead of the frame.
