The Five Most Haunted Hotels In America (You Can Spend the Night in)

When we previously offered you a guided tour of the world’s most haunted hotels, we didn’t really consider your options if you’re planning a paranormal-themed US vacation. So, with Summer around the corner, we’d like to update that list with the following locations — which range in price and accommodations depending on your budget and […]

The Tapeworm Diet: Can You Lose Weight By Eating Live Parasites?

Infecting yourself with a tapeworm seems like an ideal way to lose weight — you eat whatever you like and the worm that lives in your intestines absorbs the majority of the calories from your food — but it turns out shedding pounds through parasitic infection isn’t safe, and it might not even work. As […]

THE EVIL WITHIN: Deep Inside Andrew Getty’s Real-Life Nightmares

As our Senior Editor Rob G noted recently, Amazon and other movie services have now made the horror movie THE EVIL WITHIN available for rental. Released with little fanfare alongside the usual Z-level, straight-to-streaming horror dreck, THE EVIL WITHIN might have escaped notice were it not for the story of its production. It began with […]

Five of the Most Shocking Real-Life “Satanic” Crimes

In spite of the paranoid fantasies of religious people, there doesn’t seem to be much of an organized satanic religion in the United States. There’s no underground network of evil priests and cultists worshipping Satan in depraved midnight rituals held in desecrated churches. (Believe me, I’ve looked.) Beyond political groups using “Satan” as a provocation, Satanism […]

A Closer Look at the Amazingly Weird “Fantasy Coffins” of Ghana

Ghana is my favorite nation. Besides its history of creating bizarre promotional posters for horror movies from the 1980s and 90s, the East African nation also throws the best funerals on earth. When someone important dies among the Ga people of Ghana, they don’t just shove ‘em in a pine box. Ghanaian artists carve and […]

Corporate Horror: 10 Office Horror Movies

Jobs are where souls go to die. Beneath the bright fluorescent lights and fake plants, corporate workplaces are cages full of weirdoes who would kill their neighbors for a corner office if they weren’t such boring cowards. Blumhouse’s upcoming THE BELKO EXPERIMENT (coming to theaters on May 17) illustrates the hidden dread, desperation, and violence […]

Five Grisly True Stories of Human Corpses Discovered in Hotel Rooms

Don’t you just love checking into a hotel or motel and finding a dead body under (or inside) the bed? I sure do. Murderers renting a room, killing someone, and then shoving them inside the bed happen fairly frequently, too. You can understand the temptation — the platforms that most hotel/motel beds are built on […]

Dangerous Toys: The Five Deadliest Children’s Toys Ever Made

The five toys listed below are killer. Not killer in the sense of being awesome… in the sense of actually being potentially deadly. It may be hard to believe these were actually designed for children, considering what we now know… but yeah, they totally were. While you can no longer purchase any of these accursed playthings at […]

Clinton Road: The Most Haunted Highway in the United States

What is it with New Jersey and creepy-ass roads? We recently wrote about Warren County’s Shades of Death Road and its Native American burial ground, the photo collection of an unknown serial killer, and various ghosts… but if you drive an hour northeast of Shades of Death to West Milford, you’ll find Clinton Road, another […]

The Incredibly Bizarre World of Ghana’s Horror Movie Posters

Horror movie posters from Ghana are amazing. Painted by local artists to promote roadshow screenings of bootlegged foreign movies, these totally unauthorized images have a rawness and power that the slick Hollywood promotional materials can’t touch. In the 1980s and ’90s, “video clubs” sprung up all over the West African nation of Ghana. They screened […]

Can You Handle This List of the World’s Six Creepiest Spiders?

Nature is disgusting and just wants to kill us. Look at spiders. Totally natural and totally horrible. All of the 40,000 types of spiders on earth are enemies to man. I don’t want to hear about biodiversity, or “spiders kill other, worse insects.” Bah.  Just look at their terrible soulless eyes and consider their spindly […]

Before you mentally throw it into the dungheap of shovelware games that crap on classic movies, consider this: Coppola himself is behind the project, and has compiled a development team […]
