TW: This first story is graphic in every way.
“But this was different. She didn’t know who or what was responsible for these new noises that always came with a feeling of dread. Those noises weren’t the ones she was hearing now….
She’d hear what sounded like someone walking… kind of. The gait wouldn’t sound quite right for a person.
She’d heard an ominous, menacing, slow shuffle. And it would be accompanied by other unsettling noises – like the sound someone dragging something – scraping something – slowly across the wall.
She’s feel the energy of the whole hosuse shift when she heard all this. It felt more observant somehow.
It felt alive.”
For the first time in Scared To Death history, NO ANNOUNCEMENTS! Woohoo! Kicking it right off with the good stuff, Dan dives into the story of The Haunting of Doris Bither which was the inspiration for the 1978 novel and the 1983 movie, The Entity. It’s an interesting and well documented story. How would you react if 30 people crammed into your bedroom and witnessed the paranormal activity you had been claiming was ruining your life? Does that make it real? Listen in to hear this juicy and tragic tale! In Dan’s second tale, he explores the possibility of a supposed Ghost Ship, the Mary Celeste. That’s not a ship haunted by ghosts but rather, a ship that is found out at sea with no signs of life or death!
In Lynze’s half of the show, she shares not two but three tales this week! She starts out with a story that will make you think about how old a ghost might be and if ghosts come back to visit on the anniversary of their deaths. In story number two, we head up to visit our friends in Canada to hear the story of The Raven House, a house that might make you wonder if good ghosts and bad ghosts have some kind of relationship in their world. Can a good ghost protect you from a bad ghost? In the final story of the show, Lynze brings back a favorite kind of spirit, the jinn (also, djinn).

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.”
