This Footage of a Morgue Door Slamming by Itself is the Creepiest Thing You’ll See Today

It’s always been a little unnerving to me how rapidly a short and simple video clip can freak out hundreds of thousands of people overnight via social media — most likely it’s the unexplained element, that lack of verifiable backstory, combined with a suggestion of the macabre, that can turn a minute or two of […]

Bizarre Footage of a “Possessed” Gunshot Victim is Giving the Whole World Nightmares

To borrow a phrase, I’ve been from one end of this internet to the other, and I’ve seen a lot of strange stuff… but I really, honestly have no idea what the holy ding-dong hell biscuits is actually going on in the clip below. It’s not even certain where this footage originated… it appears to […]

A Rare Glimpse at Kurt Cobain’s Homemade Horror Movies

Nirvana was one of the defining bands of the 1990s, and a staple in the CD players of Generation X-ers like myself. The day lead singer Kurt Cobain shot himself to death is still a fresh memory, even more than twenty years later. It plays like a horror movie in my mind: coming home from […]
