You Never Know When You’re Safe

“What floor?” I asked. “You first,” he said. “You first?” – “Who says that in an elevator?” Jesus. So creepy. Now I was starting to genuinely worry about this guy. Was I safe? Was he gonna attack me in the hotel elevator? Two middle-aged men duking it out? I pushed the 14th floor and he raised up his eyebrows, saying “Good choice! Me too. Safe travels.” I was just about to ask him what the Hell his deal was when the elevator doors closed and the lights all went out.”

The first story takes us to Dallas, Texas where a traveling businessman has a long travel day turn into a true nightmare when he meets a stranger at the hotel bar.  It’s a fun and scary story set in one of Dan’s favorite horror locations – the haunted hotel. 
Next we head to upstate New York to explore the legend of The Flying Head. We’d classify it as…. a cryptid, we guess? This is a wild tale. We hope it’s not true. If it was, a pair of hunters had a bloody encounter with a monster – something supposed to be nothing more than an old Native American legend. Tale three is a bizarre and long standing relationship between a woman and a doppleganger. Or maybe it’s more than one? It’s hard to tell exactly what is happening and why. The last story of the show  has us hoping nothing ever crawls into bed with us! A woman recalls her awful encounter with something from beyond this world that joins her while she sleeps!

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.”
