“You don’t want to be with me,” Kris replied, her voice gravely and low. Laurie realized that there was still laughter— a different, high-pitched laughter, at the same time as Kris was speaking. “You want to be with them. You hate me.”
“I don’t hate you,” she begged, trying not to let her legs give out. She felt like the dolls were closing in on her, could even feel the brush of cloth against her ankles, like they were beginning to surround her. She was about to become hysterical.”
Dan brings it this week with two incredible stories! The first story is a tale of a couple who decide that, due to the pandemic, they are going to move out of their busy city and out to the mountains of Montana. It all sounds so sweet, almost dream like! The dream of making an old house their new home quickly goes sideways when a room of dolls is discovered. From the moment the dolls are found, everything changes. A possession in the Philippines is Dan’s second story. It’s a sad story, the story of a young girl living a hard life. Her hard life grows harder when she is incarcerated and then possessed. The ending of this story though, is a real head scratcher. Lynze admits that this weeks stories are a bit less spoopy than usual, she’s starting to crack up a little bit. Her first story will take us to the World’s Fair in St. Louis in 1904 where an abandoned baby goes on to lead a very interesting life and is possibly still quite interesting in death. Then, a chance encounter with the beast of Bray Rd. Two friends set out to cruise around and enjoy a few beers. When one of them needs to answer natures call, a horrific scene unfolds. Then, to end the show, a protective Grandpa makes a return visit to make sure his granddaughter remains safe.

Moment house Digital Experience: Hope you all had so much fun at first ever, Scared to Death Live Haunted Halloween – true tales of Hallow’s Eve horror. Hope we did too! We had to record this a bit in advance of that show. Huge thanks to all of you who bought tickets. And also just hope you had a great Halloween! Hope you wore the best costume, had the coolest jack o’lantern, and had the tastiest candy.
Bad Magic Productions Monthly Patreon Donation: No idea how much we’re donating, because again of when this was recorded, but the Bad Magic Productions charity of the month is IAVA – Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.
From their mission statement: We are here to serve and empower our post-9/11 veterans community. We believe these dynamic men and women represent America’s future – our next greatest generation. They are our true north, and everything we do is designed to focus on them and the positive future they bring to the world.They offer all of the guidance and support to where those resources are. Things like how to get and use their GI bill, help with housing, mental health support. After recent events with the Afghanistan withdrawal, and with Veteran’s Day coming up, this felt like the right choice this month.

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.”
