I’ve come across dozens of “ghost ship” reports in my research, but because they could be easily explained away by a phenomenon known as Fata Morgana; a type of visual illusion brought about by reflections from the water, I generally opt to ignore them. What Fata Morgana cannot explain away is a ghost ship travelling at high speed, visible for hours, and covered in flames. Welcome to the Northumberland Straight…

In January 1959, ten healthy athletic cross country skiers began on their camping trip in Russia’s Ural Mountains. They settled their camp on the edge of the mountain, Kholat Syakhl, a name which means “Mountain of the Dead”. Only one of the group members returned alive. Those that didn’t make it back were found mostly naked and shoeless almost a mile from their camp, their bones broken from crushing, one’s tongue was missing, and what little clothes they had were highly radioactive. Welcome to Dyatlov Pass…

Far from civilization in the Northern hills of Chile, a long abandoned mining town redefines the term “ghost town”. The new definition being, that by night the town’s original inhabitants buried in the adjacent cemetery physically rise from their graves and walk the streets just as they once did. Welcome to La Noria…

I don’t generally revisit the same sort of haunting so soon after posting an article, but due to the overwhelming positive response we received, and by positive I mean 16,000 readers unable to get to sleep, I looked long and hard and I’ve finally found it, something to follow up Robert The Doll. That’s right… “Dear God! There’s another one?!” Meet Annabelle…

It’s well known that ghosts can haunt or be attached to objects just as they can be attached to houses – after all a house is just a large object. If for some bizarre reason you decided to collect ghosts, it would stand to reason that the best way to do it would be to gather up over sixty of the cruellest most sadistic devices that had been used in the torture and murder of thousands of people and put them under one roof. Welcome to the Museum of Medieval Torture Instruments…

Imagine one evening you’re visiting the grave of a deceased ancestor; a man approaches you and begins a brief polite conversation. He’s as real and as solid as you or me, but mid sentence he vanishes right before your eyes. What you just experienced is an extremely rare type of ghost known as a “lepke”. Lepkes are spirits of the dead just like ghosts with the exception that they can appear in physical form, and there are less than a handful of places in the world where repeated sightings of these ghosts have occurred. If you just saw one, get the hell out, because you’re standing in one of the planets most haunted locations. Welcome to the Union Cemetery…

The one thing that helped me fall asleep at night after watching the exorcist was that the terrifying events portrayed in that movie weren’t going to happen to me, that whatever ghost may or may not live in my house couldn’t possess people, and that a demon possessing me was fairly unlikely. What I researched today changed all that. Welcome to 284 Green Street…

There are some real places in this world where everything just lines up for the perfect horror movie. A twisting narrow road through dense forest with an utterly creepy name haunted by the angry spirits of lynched highwaymen; add to that a creepy lake with a creepy abandoned cabin, numerous murders including beheadings and a large number of wandering vicious wild animals, and you’ve got yourself one hell of a movie; except its real.

Greyfriar Kirkyard is a five century old cemetery in Old Town Edinburgh, which plays home to two ghosts, or possibly three. The latter two are the phantoms of a skye terrier named Bobby, and his owner John Gray, but they don’t really do much. In fact nobody has really solidly reported sightings of the two, but that may just be because the third keeps physically attacking and wounding people visiting the cemetery.

Ilha de Queimada Grande : Brazil

Roughly 20 miles off the coast of Brazil, an isolated 110 acre mountainous island sits completely alone in the South Atlantic Ocean. The nearest island is a minimum 10 miles away, and is only a fraction the size. What makes this 110 acre island special is who, or rather what, lives there – pretty much nothing. Nothing that is, except for an estimated 400,000 of the most lethally poisonous snakes on Earth! That’s roughly one death dealing serpent per square meter, and that’s why Ilha de Queimada Grande is nicknamed “Snake Island”. Welcome to the last place on Earth you ever want to be…
