The Nightmare Man

“They continued to hear the sounds of footsteps behind them. Getting louder. Gaining on them. Their only source of hope was the soft breeze constantly flowing through from the opposite end. The cool, dry air. Finally – they reached a t-shaped intersection. Which way to turn?”

In another fun week of spoopy fun, Dan shares two incredible stories. Our first story takes us to Oregon, just outside of Portland. Two friends take an adventure into a supposedly haunted mental hospital that is home to tunnels that connect to another abandoned building. Do they encounter an angry entity? Do they run into a former patient? Was it all in their heads? For Dan’s second tale, it is short and not-so-sweet. Lynze hates the ending of this one; what do you think about an unfinished tale?

In the second half of the show, Lynze takes us to a possible haunting in Bozeman, Montana, in an old forest service lookout. Was it a ghost that entered this space? Was someone sleep walking? And who took the dog out in the middle of the night? For story number two, a fan submission makes us wonder if mirrors truly are a portal for spirits.

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.”
