“Hanging from the ceiling. Swaying back and forth, holding that cross just like I’d heard, giant grin on her face, and those dark, hateful eyes staring right at me. And then her mouth moved as I heard her speak. “I knew you’d burn when you were a kid, Jason, and I know it now. Your dad is waiting for you. HELL! Hell WAITS!”
A truly terrifying story of a murder turned ghost that haunts the woods of Lums Pond State Park, a beautiful park that flies under the radar! In the 1870s, an unnamed young woman from New Castle County ran away from home and ended up in what is now the park. This woman decided to camp out in the woods her first night away from home. A man found her and based on the state of her body as it was found later, he’d raped her and left her for dead. Before she died, some locals heard her screaming late it into the night, but they weren’t able to find her body until long after she died of her injuries. Her body wasn’t found for several days, actually. And her killer was never found.
Then for story two, a very specific kind of haunting in a church basement, like one you will never forget. A woman from the local parish who was in charge of Bible study, one day, hanged herself in the church basement and it would appear, she still has not found peace in death. The back half of the show unintentionally takes on a theme of kids and attachments or hauntings, but in different ways. In story one, it would seem that a boy is born with the gift of seeing things that live beyond our realm, whether he likes it or not. In the final story of the show, a true skeptic gives into the other side when he is haunted repeatedly by the little blue boy with the maniacal grin.

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.”
