The Enfield Poltergeist

“Now!” he cried. ‘Can you see me?’ Annie screamed. ‘Go away!’ She bared her teeth and started to laugh, her chest spasming as she heaved.”

A quote from today’s first story. Our first tale is the infamous Enfield Poltergeist. The basis for the horror blockbuster, the Conjuring 2. From 1977 to 1979, some of the most intense poltergeist activity ever witnessed by multiple people was targeted at one family living in Enfield, a northern borough of London. Our second story is a tale of one boy’s repeated encounters with a shadow man in Leeds. And then Lynze will be telling two listener-submitted horror tales.

Opening Sumerian protection spell (adapted):
Whether thou art a ghost that hath come from the earth, or a phantom of night that hath no home… or one that lieth dead in the desert… or a ghost unburied… or a demon or a ghoul… Whatever thou be until thou art removed… thou shalt find here no water to drink… Thou shalt not stretch forth thy hand to our own… Into our house enter thou not. Through our fence, breakthrough thou not… we are protected though we may be frightened. Our life you may not steal, though we may feel SCARED TO DEATH.”
