The Monster Under The Bed

“And then soon, they went from concerned to outright scared when Kristine walked into the kitchen one day to see Natalia pouring Pine-Sol into Kristine’s coffee.

Kristine says she ran over and stopped her immediately, hoping, praying, that Natalia was just messing around.

But then when she asked Natalia what she was doing, she said that Natalia replied, “I’m trying to kill you.” “

Dan takes us down a strange and peculiar story hole this week. His two stories are a bit off the beaten path. He starts with the story of a family who adopts a Ukrainian girl only to find out, she might not be who or what she claims to be. A lot of people have drawn a comparison between this story and the movie, “The Orphan”. The movie existed before this strange occurrence, so who knows if the family was overreacting because they had seen the movie or if they were inspired to eliminate a threat to their family, quickly, because of the movie. The second story from Dan takes us to Pyramid Lake for some really peculiar details. From giant fish to water babies, Pyramid Lake seems to have some very interesting things living, or not so living, just under the water.

Carrying on the theme of the strange and unexplained, Lynze has two juicy tales. The first one is of a haunted house. Perhaps the house didn’t need to feel creepy, it could have been a kind spirit but it all took a turn for the south with a simple touch. Did this family accidentally invite something in when they began a remodel? You will think twice about painting your room after this one! In her second story, Lynze has a good old fashioned tale of the monster under the bed. Everyone has felt that kind of fear as a child but what would you do if you actually saw it? A listener has a really hard time ever sleeping again…

New Merch: Cool new Scared to Death popcorn bowl in the store at Bad Magic Merch dot com for horror movie nights. Since it has a lid, could also use it a storage container.

Having problems with demons, maybe you could use it to trap one? I don’t know for sure that it DOES do that – also don’t know for sure that it DOESN’T.

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.”
