Masters Of Horror

I was perusing my Facebook earlier today and a friend of mine was talking about ‘Masters Of Horror’, an American TV series I’d never heard of for some reason.

I’m kind of intrigued. It was made between 2005-2007 and features some pretty big name writers and directors. I have a feeling it never made it to the UK, even on Sky.

Has anyone else seen this show? Perhaps you could tell me if there are any episodes I should definitely check out?

Haunted Castles

Everyone loves a haunted castle. Some castles are seeped through with myths and legends, scary stories of spooks, and are believed to be haunted places where restless souls linger in the night. Some castles have been investigated by paranormal teams who record and offer “proof” of the hauntings.

Whatever, you’re going to need to try and visit all these places someday armed with a team of cockneys and a video camera that shoots in the dark, with the occasional friend kicking a tin can around and calling it a ghost when no one is looking. Or you might get lucky and see a real ghost. Who knows.

Curses

There are probably sixty-six curses that can be easily identified in the Bible by simply looking up the word ‘curse’ as well as the words ‘cursed’ and and ‘cursing’. Most of the curses are not so easily identified but must be discovered by studying the Bible and practicing deliverance (allegedly).

Here’s a good one: Deuteronomy 7:26 ‘Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house lest thou be a cursed thing like it; but thou shalt utterly abhor it for it is a cursed thing. If you have cursed objects on your body or in your possessions that your carry around, or that are in your home, then your are cursed by God. You have invited the demons to attack you and the people that live in your home.’

So kids, leave the McDonalds and KFC boxes in the car – it’s just not safe to bring them into the house.

If you want to play a little game, just check this handy list to see how many curses you’ve racked up over your life. The great thing is that some of these curses can be handed down from generation to generation, so don’t forget you might have more than you realise.

Curses And What To Do About Them

Split Mouth Woman

The Japanese have a whole host of terrifying legends, one of the best being ‘Split Mouth Woman’ (Kuchisake-Onna). Whether you’re unfortunate enough to bump into her while doing some window shopping in Tokyo, or happen across her while admiring the view in a Zen garden there’s a very good chance that she’ll cut your head off with a massive pair of shears.

It’s not quite that simple. You do have a chance at answering one question: ‘Am I beautiful?’ she will ask you in her sultry voice. Her long trenchcoat looks pretty cool, and she is stunning apart from the fact you can’t see the lower half of her face as it is obscured by a white surgical mask.

Tha bad news is, if you answer ‘yes’ she will remove her mask and show you that her face has been sliced from ear to ear, showing a toothy gummy grin much wider than nature intended. And should you answer ‘no’ she’ll cut your head clean off.

One other thing – if you answer ‘yes’ and you get to see her obscenely deformed features, she will give you one more chance to answer the question, and no matter what you answer the second time she will cut your head off anyway.

Don’t blame me – I don’t make the rules.

Eight Scary Japanese Urban Legends

Glasgow Necropolis

50,000 burials have taken place at the Necropolis and most of 3,500 tombs have been constructed up to 14 feet deep, with stone walls and brick partitions.

On the top of the Necropolis tombs were blasted out of the rockface. In 1877 the Molendinar Burn, running under the Bridge of Sighs, was culverted. This burn in which St Mungo was said to have fished for salmon is now underground on its way to the Clyde.

The Glasgow Necropolis still has a wonderful atmosphere and still attracts many visitors both locally and from all over the world.

Alien Skull?

An archaeological discovery of 13 Conehead-shaped skulls in Mexico has people recalling the film ‘Coneheads’.

The bones, which are about 1,000 years old, dating back to 945 A.D. to 1308 A.D., were discovered accidentally during a dig for an irrigation system in the northwest state of Sonora in Mexico.

While it’s not unheard of for archaeological sites to be unearthed during modern excavations, the misshapen skulls discovered on the site are fairly uncommon, especially as far north as Sonora.

It’s Raining Bones

St Mary’s church in Whitby is falling down the cliff it’s perched upon. Bram Stoker was inspired to use the cemetery as the backdrop for some of Dracula’s horror scenes after visiting the North Yorkshire town in the 1890s.

In the story, Dracula attempts to relocate from Transylvania to England, but his ship runs aground in Whitby in a storm.

Stoker hit upon the idea of the count while reading a history book at Whitby library, and made St Mary’s part of the story after being struck by the way the bats circled the building.

The church is now falling down the cliff as the cliff itself collapses, throwing bits of old body parts and coffins down the slopes onto the houses below. Useful if you’re growing veggies in the back garden I would imagine.

The Scariest House In Spain?

The Bélmez Faces are an alleged paranormal phenomenon in a private house in Spain which started in 1971 when residents claimed images of faces appeared in the concrete floor of the house. These images have continuously formed and disappeared on the floor of the home.

Various faces have appeared and disappeared at irregular intervals since 1971 and have been frequently photographed by the local newspapers and curious visitors. Many Bélmez residents believe that the faces were not made by human hand. Some investigators believe that it is a thoughtographic phenomenon subconsciously produced by the owner of the house, María Gómez Cámara.

Here’s one of them here. Spooky.
