It’s been a while since a story scared me…wow
- Child of Rage: A documentary about a young girl who was sexually abused when she was a year old. She has a desire to murder her entire family and carries out numerous disturbing tasks.
- The Scariest Drug in the World: Scopolamine is a drug that when taken keeps a person coherent but makes them open to follow commands. It’s been used to make people steal, as a rape drug and a way to humiliate people. It’s known as a “chemical hypnosis”. This film documents people’s experience with it.
- Demonic Possession and Exorcism: The footage you are about to witness contains highly disturbing material.
- An Interview with a Cannibal: An interview with a man named, Issei Sagawa who committed a pretty horrific crime. He butchered and raped a young Dutch women because he wanted to absorb her “energy”. He spent 3 days consuming her flesh.
- The Bridge: A film on the Golden Gate Bridge, which captures the number of suicides. Many describe it as a powerful documentary, that leaves a lasting impression.
- High on Crack Street: Shows just how badly crack ruins lives. A great portrayal of the harsh, dark side of drugs.
- Aokigahara/Suicide Forest: A geologist walks through the forest and shows us what he sees. Definitly contains some depressing material.
- Atomic Wounds: The effect of a nuclear weapon on a mass number of people. It’s disheartening, it’s horrifying, but it’s reality.
- Just Melvin, Just Evil: A documentary about a tormented family who suffered from sexual abuse and substance abuse because of one man. It leaves you wondering how can one man be so destructive?
- Earthlings: One of the most intense documentaries made about animal abuse. Footage contains graphic material.
Feel free to add to this list :)
What is a ouija board
- Basically, it’s a board, such as the one pictured above, you have to put your hand on a planchette, and the planchette is supposed to move around by itself and send you messages from the beyond
- The concept of “planchette writing” as a means of contacting the dead dates back to the Song Dynasty in China (1100 AD)
- But the ouija board itself doesn’t have ancient roots
- Ouija Boards had their roots in the Spiritual movement in the U.S that began during the 1840’s
- Elijah Bond and others decided to take this board and turn it into a patented toy during 1890’s
Is it real, is it dangerous?
- Some people have had some extremely bad encounters with this. Some say how it can unlock a portal into another dark world and let things in, you never want.
- Is it all in their minds or is it something genuine?
- Who really knows the absolute truth, but here is where you can read about people and their experiences
Is there a scientific explanation?
- Yes, there is! It’s called the ideometer effect, or basically the idea that your involuntary/unconsciously moving the planchette yourself!
- Here are some experiments and lots more information that support this notion
Fun and games
- Here’s an online version of the ouija. Maybe it’ll give you an idea of how it works. Don’t worry the online version isn’t “haunted”, just something to pass the time if you are bored!
About a year ago, I was taking photos in the Paris Catacombs for my latest project for my photography portfolio. I was pretty far down, but it was okay since I had told some friends that I would be out by 7 p.m, and that if I wasn’t, they should send help. I also had a radio and a walkie that my buddy could speak to me on from the street above, and glowsticks that I had left down the passages i’d been down so that I could find my way back easily.
It was about 6:15 and I had gone far enough so that I had used up all my glowsticks, so I knew it was time to start heading back. I decided to take a few more pictures before ending my expedition. I had taken a few snaps around the dark corridor I was standing in before a couple things happened that made me -a non-religious skeptic- pray to whatever god could hear me to get me the fuck out of there.
Yet, I don’t know which scared me more.
The fact that the glow sticks were gone,
Or the fact that the face-detect on my camera had outlined something in the pitch darkness only a few feet in front of me.

Story inspired by the true story of the found footage of a man who went missing in the Paris Catacombs. You can watch the footage/documentary here.
The footage is truly terrifying, not only because the man (or his body) still hasn’t been found, but because no one knows what scared him to the point of dropping his seemingly only source of light and running possibly away from something.
Also, there’s a new horror movie coming out about the Catacombs called ‘As Above, So Below’. You can watch the trailer here!
Something strange is happening in Singapore today.
On a busy street in Singapore, residents discovered a small doll leaning against a tree. The doll looked somewhat antique and had its eyes covered with a cloth. The cloth had some arabic text written on it. The doll’s backstory and the subsequent research hinted at the fact that the doll was possibly possessed.
In the words of the person who posted the pictures on Reddit, “The doll was found beside a busy street in Singapore. The Arabic word on the cloth is translated as ‘Bismillah’.
The ‘Bismillah’ maybe a blessing to keep the demon or jinn possessing it inside the doll at all times.
Stories from twitter revealed that the doll is possessed and has been moving around on its own when the original owner isn’t home. The owner binded the eyes and left it far away from home so it wouldn’t follow her back.
"Some say the doll can be heard talking when it’s left alone in a room and is found with its head turned in a different direction. It is said that it spoke in a Malay language and sound like an adult female.”
The original owner found that the only way to get rid of it and make sure it won’t come back is to cover its eyesight. The curse is rumored to have passed on to someone else who found it and untied the cloth unknowingly.
The Capuchin Catacombs display endless rows of preserved corpses and lots of them are small children and babies. The friars who were buried there were part of the Capuchin order, and there’s a saying there that translates: “that which you are, we were; that which we are, you shall be.”
They weren’t scared at all of their deaths, they just accepted the cycle of life. The catacombs are decorated with their bones to sort of symbolize how humble they were and how they submitted to a higher power.
