HOUR ONE: 
In 1959, a radio DJ in New York decided to conduct a publicity stunt – and it literally drove him insane. (Sleepless In New York) *** In December 1963 two boys hit upon an idea for a school science project – stay awake for as long as possible. And it shed new light on what happens inside our tired brains. (The Boy Who Wouldn’t Sleep) *** We can fight off the sandman for a while, but after a certain point, sleeplessness leads to temporary madness and possibly even death. (Don’t Try To Stay Awake) *** The infamous cursed paintings called “The Crying Boy”. Are all of the terrifying stories associated with the painting true, or have we simply created a fascinating legend we choose to believe? (The Crying Boy Painting)

HOUR TWO: The bell rings, you answer the door, and you are met by two young boys. A normal event in the life of everyday people – but have those children on your doorstep ever had jet black eyes? (Real Accounts of BEK) *** A woman makes the mistake of letting one of these children into her home… and now she is dying. (I Let The Black Eyed Kids Inside, Now I’m Dying) *** More and more, reports are coming in about the after-effects of meeting BEKs – even years after the encounter. (BEKs and Cancer) *** Most BEK encounters are the children trying to get into your home – but there’s also a story of a normal child going door-to-door and one those doors is answered by a black-eyed adult! (Who Are The Parents of the Black Eyed Kids?)

SUDDEN DEATH OVERTIME: 
When it comes to the religious practice of snake-handling, sometimes God holds back the snake. Sometimes, He sends you to heaven. (Slithering Preacher Killer) *** The idea of waking up each day with no memory of the previous day makes for a humorous scenario in Hollywood – such as the film “50 First Dates”. But the real thing is not nearly as laughable. (The Scary Reality of Anterograde Amnesia) *** If you visit Central Michigan University you’ll see intelligent students, friendly staff, experienced professors, and… if you’re not careful… a few undead alumni. (The Haunts of Central Michigan University)
