Ebeneezer Scrooge had nothing on a man named Charles Henry. Charles was miserly, and cruel. No doubt he had a long list of people who could’ve been accused of wanting him dead. *** When it comes to B-movie horror, you can’t do much better than the 1958 classic “The Blob”. But don’t believe it’s just science fiction – reports have been coming for years of people in real life actually coming across some type of amorphous creatures very similar to what was originally seen on the big screen. *** The Conjuring, The Amityville Horror, Annabelle, and many other books and films have been based on Ed and Lorraine Warren and the stories they tell. But it appears they may not be as advertised. If fact, they’ve been shown to be fraudulent on more than one occasion. *** Whether or not you believe in curses, luck, or fate it may be hard to explain away some of the eerie items people have had in their keeping, only to get rid of them as quickly as possible for fear of suffering more calamities. *** A woman describes her home as a child as evil – even on sunny days, the gloom would overtake her. *** In an old cemetery in North Carolina, a young girl is buried – but not in a coffin as you might expect. She was buried while submerged in a keg of rum.
