“After a few days of this, the monk and his nuns now carried her from her room and into the church, chaining her to a cross with her arms stretched out in a crucifixion pose while they doused her with holy water at the alter of Christ. As they watched her arms strain against the ties, they wondered if they were hurting her and should untie her.”
The first story is known as the The Tanacu Exorcism. What everyone agrees on with this story, is that in the Spring of 2005, a young nun named Maricica Cornici died after collapsing after being tied up for about a week in a Romanian monastery. What there is a lot of disagreement on is what led to her death. Did a monk and some nuns horribly handle a case of schizophrenia? Or – was this truly a case of demonic possession? The second story takes place in Garfield Heights, Ohio. An anonymous woman bought her first house and joy and pride quickly turn into paranormal terror. Very unique type of haunting that I can’t set up much without giving something away. But this one is probably gonna be hard to listen to if you hear it right before you go to bed and you live alone. Story three brings us to Cuba! A young girl takes a horse back riding trip while on a family vacation. She discovers what appears to be a stone altar and, unfortunately, removes a necklace from the stone altar. By doing so, she interrupts a tradition in Santeria that helps spirits move on to the other side. Then in the final story, a couple encounters a mischievous ghost in a Dublin pub!

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.”
