GRAVE ROBBING FOR MORONS: Is This Creepy VHS Footage for Real?

“This Video is for Fun.” Thus reads the unofficial cover art for this notorious half-hour video, allegedly sourced from a VHS tape in the late 1980s or early 1990s, then dubbed and re-dubbed for circulation and sale among bootleg collectors, often (literally) under the table at horror conventions and through mail-order tape trading communities. It’s […]

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 […]

CREEPYPASTA: Exclusive Footage of “Beth Parson’s Doll” — The Toy That Would Not Rest

Today’s short, sharp and shocking tale begins with a simple declaration of fact: Beth Parson is dead. She’s been dead for over a century, in fact.

VIDEO: Be Sure to Keep Your Car Running on Crybaby Bridge!

Some of America’s spookiest myths and urban legends come from the good ol’ Midwest — aliens, ghosts, even entire towns haunted by bad luck and superstition. One of the most widespread urban legends that I’ve heard my entire adult life is that of “Crybaby Bridge.” Nearly every state in the Midwest — from Oklahoma to […]

Video Editorial: Why MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE is a Perfect Metaphor for Today’s Political Apocalypse

Okay, here goes… over the past year or so as head writer for this site, I’ve managed to steer clear from explosive socio-political topics in my work. But events of the past few months have forced my hand, and also serve to remind me how my duty as a writer, artist and journalist includes using […]

Spiders, Sharks, Scorpions and More Horrors from the Headlines

Face it, folks: the world we live in is getting weirder by the minute. Seriously, at this point, the urge to retreat into a world of fictional monsters is nearly impossible to resist. But journalists still have a job to do (even if we’re just writing about demon sightings, botched exorcisms and… uh, Florida?). Honest, well-researched […]

We Dare You to Watch This Man Feed a Room Full of Deadly Cobras

While I believe we’ve done our humble part in supplying enough horrifying spider stories to keep arachnophobes in therapy for a couple more years (how else is your psychiatrist going to pay for that new swimming pool?), I fear I’ve been remiss in balancing those out with sufficient nightmare fodder for ophidiophobes — that is, […]
