“The Horror BEFORE Amityville” and 4 More True Terrifying Stories! #WeirdDarkness

The iconic Dutch Colonial style building at 112 Ocean Avenue, Amityville, is best known today for the extraordinary account of a haunting at the house in 1976. The Amityville Horror, as it was soon known, became one of the most famous incidents of paranormal activity ever recorded. It would inspire a book and a successful series of Hollywood films. The account of the young Lutz family being tormented by demonic pigs, plagues of flies and green slime oozing from the walls terrified readers and moviegoers, all the more so because it was labelled as a true story. One surprisingly little-known fact about the Amityville Horror is that it was an admitted hoax. George Lutz and his wife Kathy invented the haunting with the help of lawyer and literary agent William Weber. But the paranormal version obscures a very real horror, one far more frightening and mysterious than the fanciful tales of poltergeists Hollywood gave the world. Because in the same house, less than 2 years earlier, one of the strangest and most baffling mass murders in recent history occurred. And the true events may not be the story you are familiar with.
IN THIS EPISODE: We’ve all heard of the Headless Horseman – but Sleepy Hollow's lesser-known ghost will terrify you all the more. (The Bronze Lady of Sleepy Hollow) Theodore Roosevelt was so tough, that during one of his speeches he was shot in the chest – but still kept going until his speech was over. And then there was Alice, his daughter – who may have been even tougher than Teddy! (A Bullet And a Voodoo Doll) An icy cold hand caresses a girl in the middle of the night. (A Comfort) For most people, spotting a UFO would be considered extremely unusual, but for two Ohio women, seeing a UFO was the least surprising part of their experience. (UFOs And Time Distortions) Was there another gunman in the notorious Amityville House murders? (The Defeo Family Massacre)

“The Axman of New Orleans” and 3 More True Terrifying Stories! #WeirdDarkness
In this episode…
The Lingering Ghost of “Ma” Barker haunts the shores of Lake Weir in Florida.
Sex with ghosts… is it erotic or horrific?
An axe-wielding maniac stalked the streets of the Big Easy, and the only way to avoid slaughter was to play jazz.
And something new I’m adding to the podcast – Dark Chapters – where I share an entire chapter of a book. In this episode, I’ll share something from one of my favorite authors and podcasters – Aaron Mahnke, and his LORE series of books.
Now.. bolt your doors, lock your windows, turn off your lights, and come with me into the Weird Darkness!

“THE LADY LAUGHING IN MY BEDROOM” and 3 More Terrifying True Stories! #WeirdDarkness
IN THIS EPISODE OF #WEIRDDARKNESS: More than a hundred years ago, reports described it as “the most weird and gruesome apartment in the world.” Why display an entire room full of grotesque items and open it to the public? (New York Charnel House) Kell’s Irish Pub in Seattle has a creepy vibe to it, even if the displays and decorations inside aren’t meant to be. Perhaps that’s because the building started its life as a massive mortuary. (The Beaux Arts Butterworth Building) Early one February morning in 1897, John Mars jumped out of bed from a sound sleep, and while the smell of breakfast cooking downstairs wafted up to the second level of the house, he inexplicably grabbed his pistol and went on a shooting spree of his own family. (The Act of a Mad Man) A four-year-old has a paranormal experience… and the man he grew into over 60 years later is still unsure of what happened to him. (The Lady Laughing In My Bedroom)

WORRIES OF AN ALIEN INVASION, 9 Terrifying True Paranormal Horror Stories! #WeirdDarkness
When the Martians first land on Earth in the 1996 sci-fi comedy Mars Attacks!, for a moment it appears all will be fine. “We come in peace,” says their leader, as the music swells and a dove soars overhead. Seconds later the Martian pulls out a laser gun and opens fire on a crowd of human onlookers. Yet another blockbuster alien invasion has begun. That’s Hollywood, of course. But the melodrama underscores one of humanity’s most widely held fears: that if and when we do encounter extraterrestrial beings, they will wreak all kinds of havoc, much as they do in the movies. Or will they?
IN THIS EPISODE: The legend said it was made of clay, and given life by mystical means. The Jews created it as a means of protection – so the story goes, at least. We’ll look at the legend of the golem – and see if there is any truth behind it. (The Golem) In the 1860’s, John Mudd found some letters that he wouldn’t publish for more than fifty years – because what he read in those letters terrified him. (Strange Sea Creatures) In 1936 a series of holdups escalated into armed robbery and eventually murder, all carried out by a trio of teens. (The Baby Bandits of San Francisco) It is Abraham Lincoln who issued the Emancipation Proclamation, freeing the slaves. But did he get the idea for this historic legislation from beyond the grave? (Lincoln’s Messages From Beyond) In 1866, a woman named Laura Foster was murdered. A man named Tom Dula was convicted and hanged for the crime. The crime now lives on, in one of the most famous folk songs ever recorded. (Hang Down Your Head Tom Dooley) During the Kentucky Meat Shower Of 1876, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs was real life when meat purportedly poured from the heavens. (The Kentucky Meat Shower 1876) People sometimes say they experience a kind of floating, weightless feeling when in bed – but one man’s bed floated all the way to the ceiling. (Bed Rising) Some say this is a nothing short of a miracle, while others are downright dubious. A unique Bible, continues to spew out an unidentified oil – and so far, scientists are unable to explain it. (Miracle Bible Dripping Oil) We may or may not ever see an actual alien invasion of our planet. But if we do, scientists are now saying the extraterrestrials would not be here to eat us – and they explain why. (To Serve Man)

“UFOs, BIGFOOT, GHOSTS and PARANORMAL FOREST FIRES” and more Creepy TRUE Stories! #WeirdDarkness
IN THIS EPISODE: The author of Frankenstein always saw love and death as connected. She visited the cemetery to commune with her dead mother. And with her lover. (Mary Shelley’s Obsession With The Cemetery) A girl moves into a new apartment and discovers that a haunting doesn’t necessarily have to be frightening. (Ghostly Happenings In My Old Apartment) The July 1886 murder at the Shawmut Avenue laundry was so shrouded in mystery that even the victim’s name was uncertain. (The Wash-House Murder) Ghosts, high strangeness, and even Bigfoot – it appears they may all have something in common, and that would be forest fires. (Forest Fires and the Paranormal) How do you explain an experienced lookout reporting a blazing forest fire, only for it to disappear less than an hour later – leaving no trace? (Phantom Flames)

WEIRD DARKNESS LIVE ON HALLOWEEN: http://weirddarkness.com/weirdweb/1600/
IN THIS EPISODE: Matthew Weeks was found guilty and hanged for the murder of Charlotte Dymond. Today it is said that the ghosts of both of them roam the countryside – but could it be that Matthew’s ghost is lamenting because he was innocent of the crime? (The Murder of Charlotte Dymond on Bodmin Moor) A building situated right in the middle of London’s swankiest and most historical areas, has long been said to be the lair of something not of this earth. (The Bizarre Nameless Thing of Berkley Square) “The Jungle Book” - we are all familiar with the story in some way – either from the classic animated Disney film version from 1967, the live action version in 2016, or the original novel by Rudyard Kipling published in 1894. In fact, yet another retelling of the story is coming in 2019 in a film entitled simply, “Mowgli”. But what many don’t know is that the character of Mowgli was, in fact, inspired by a real boy who was raised by wild animals. (The Real Life Inspiration for Mowgli) Evil stepmothers, jealous of their stepdaughters’ beauty are a classic tome in fantastical stories – but Martha Savcoll was no fairy tale. (Brooklyn Murderess) Of all the places in the world you would expect to be safe from the paranormal, it would be a church – but that would not be telling the truth when referring to Adams Grove Presbyterian Church in Alabama. (Haunted Adams Grove Presbyterian Church) Outside of Washington, D.C. lies Forest Haven Asylum, an abandoned institution with a thoroughly disturbing past. (The Anguish of Forest Haven Asylum)

“The Terrifying True Story of ROBERT THE DOLL” and 3 More Real Dark Stories! #WeirdDarkness
IN THIS EPISODE: In Brazil, two corpses were found on a hill, dressed in matching suits with homemade lead masks draped over their eyes. (The Lead Masks Case) If you were to be asked who the most horrible, terrifying figure in the Bible was, you would likely say Lucifer – that is, Satan himself. But there is a figure even more terrifying – and it is God’s right-hand man in the book of Revelation. (God’s Right Hand Man) Horror – the stories and images seem to change with each passing year, but there was a violent shift in horror shortly after the violent reality of the “War to End All Wars”. (How Horror Changed After World War 1) From creepy voices to mysterious movements to strange laughter and eerie deaths, the legend of Robert the Doll outshines many cursed object stories and has been haunting people for over a hundred years, and shows no sign of slowing down.

“THE HAUNTING GHOSTS OF 9/11” and 3 More True Paranormal Stories #WeirdDarkness
IN THIS EPISODE: A man and his family experience strange and terrifying events in their home located next to a meteor crater. (I’ve Never Told My Story) Part bat. Part bigfoot. What has been unfortunately named “Batsquatch” sounds like a B-list villain in a DC comic taking on the Caped Crusader, but for some who live in Washington state near Mt. St. Helens, it’s not imaginary at all. (Bizarre Encounters With Batsquatch) If you mention gnomes to someone, most think of those tiny ceramic or concrete figurines people place in gardens or on their front doorstep to greet visitors. But in a certain portion of England, if you mention gnomes – you get the real thing. (The Mysterious Gnomes of Wollaton Park) But first, we go back to a normal, sunny Tuesday morning seventeen years ago – when the world changed forever after a terrorist attack on the U.S., left families in despair, a country in fear, and spirits of those lost still wandering ground zero to this day. (The Ghosts of 9-11) If you like what you hear, please share a link to this post on your social media, tell your friends about the podcast, and please leave a rating and review in Apple Podcasts; I might read your review here in a future episode!

IN THIS EPISODE: With Disney’s live-action “Aladdin” coming to theaters, many are expressing their opinions about the horror of Will Smith in the role of the genie – how he looks and how he acts. But the truth behind real genies is much more terrifying. (The Horror Behind Real Genies) An army wife and Weirdo family member opens her heart and shares how horrible one of her homes felt, and the only relief she could find was moving out. (There’s No Place Like Anyplace Other Than Home) Luka Magnotta would do anything for fame – and he chose the darkest and most sadistic way to achieve it. (The Man Who Became a Cannibal To Become Famous)

(Apologies for the audio hiccups/errors. I’m not sure what happened, but somehow audio kept getting clipped during the narration recording.)

HISTORY’S MOST VIOLENT HAUNTINGS #WeirdDarkness
Most ghosts are passive or even benevolent, seeming to scare people only by accident, never by intent. Ghosts that were violent, however (also known as poltergeists) are in a class by themselves. Some of these malevolent spirits have actually killed people, and the most famous cases of violent hauntings have inspired multiple books and movie adaptations. This episode looks at some of the most vicious and violent "true" hauntings around the world and throughout history.

“THE CURSED VILLAGE OF WITCHES” and 5 More Terrifying True Horror Stories! #WeirdDarkness
Nestled away within the rolling foothills of the Moncayo mountain range, in the province of Zaragoza, Aragon, Spain, is the tiny village of Trasmoz. The town has a long history, with its origins as a lordship dating back to the 12th century. Its colorful and turbulent past has seen it being conquered by Jaime I, king of Aragón, as well as a civil war with the nearby Veruela Abbey, and it is also known as being the temporary home of a Spanish inventor of the mop and its bucket. Over the years the population has dwindled here from around 10,000 people in its heyday to just around 62 permanent residents, and it seems like just another quaint little Spanish countryside town, but this place is remarkable as having a rather sinister past as a place of witches, pagan rituals, and black magic. I’m Darren Marlar and this is Weird Darkness.

WEIRD DARKNESS LIVE ON HALLOWEEN: http://weirddarkness.com/weirdweb/1600/
IN THIS EPISODE: When Jeffrey Dampier won the lottery, he thought he finally had it all. Little did he know that someone was about to take everything from him. (No Good Deed Goes Unpunished) They found Annie stretched out on the floor with a pistol lying by her hand. There was no sign of a struggle and nothing had been taken; they could only conclude that Annie had taken her own life. But is that really what happened? (The Annie Dorman Mystery) When you think of seeing a ghost, you almost automatically envision an ethereal being, in flowing white – like that of a woman in a wedding dress. And that might make sense, seeing as there are a lot of dead brides-to-be floating around America. (Til Death: Ghost Brides of the United States) You’ve seen them on the outside of large gothic buildings and massive churches. Their stone faces and menacing presence can be unsettling to some. But what are the purpose of gargoyles? (In The Protection of Gargoyles) Were Betty and Barney Hill actually visited and even abducted by aliens in 1961, or was it an outlandish story just to get attention? (The Betty and Barney Hill Abduction) The village of Trasmoz in Spain is said to be cursed by witches. Could there be a truth in the lore? (The Cursed Village of Witches)

“THE HISTORY OF SUMMERWIND MANSION” and 5 More Terrifying True Paranormal Stories! #WeirdDarkness
If a person was forced to choose what the greatest ghost story in Wisconsin might be, it would almost undoubtedly be the legend of Summerwind. This haunted mansion has spawned more strange tales and stories that any other location in the state. What dark secrets remain hidden in the ruins of this once grand estate? Were the stories of ghostly encounters and messages from beyond really true... or were they part of an elaborate publicity hoax?

IN THIS EPISODE: Was Summerwind in Wisconsin really haunted? No one knows and if they do, they aren’t saying. Today, only the foundations, the stone chimneys and perhaps the ghosts remain. (Summerwind: The Most Haunted House In Wisconsin) A young woman discovers that it’s possible to live a lonely life, yet still not be alone. (Followed By a Child) Is it possible that during the years of World War 1, Agnes Whiteland, while peering off her balcony, saw a group of time travelers? (Agnes And The Time Travelers) Tituba proved to be a fantastic orator as she talked her way out of slavery using the fear and mass hysteria of witchcraft that paralyzed the people of Salem. (Tituba And the Salem Witch Trials) The discovery of a 10-year-old's body at an ancient Roman site in Italy suggests his family, friends, and neighbors thought he was a vampire – and took measures to make sure he wouldn’t return from the grave. (The Unearthing of a Child Vampire) Authorities placed Gil Perez in jail as a deserter and for the possibility that he may have been in the service of Satan. In Gil’s defense though, he said he simply teleported somewhere else. (Teleportation of a Spanish Soldier)

“WAS THE ZODIAC KILLER A HOAX?” and More Horrifying But True Horror Stories! #WeirdDarkness
“This is the Zodiac speaking”. With those words, written in a letter to The San Francisco Examiner, a killer was christened and a mystery born that continues to this day. The letter, received by the newspaper on August 4 1969, was claiming credit for 2 sets of recent murders in the Bay Area around San Fransisco. It was the second letter from someone claiming to be the killer, but this time he gave himself his soon to be legendary name — ‘The Zodiac’. More murders would follow, along with more letters to local newspapers and police. The Zodiac’s terrible crimes were being publicly played out in the nation’s newspapers, with each twist and turn holding the American public under a grim spell. And then he stopped. Less than a year after his first murder, the Zodiac killer simply stopped killing. But did the Zodiac killer actually ever exist?
