The Creeper of Waverly Hills Sanatorium


We head to South Carolina’s allegedly haunted Salem Black River Presbyterian Church. Do several spirits haunt not only the church, but the nearby cemetery as well? This story features a modern encounter. For the second story, we travel to the supposedly VERY haunted Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, Kentucky. The former location of a tremendous amount of death is now a hotspot for ghost hunters, and it sounds like for good reason. Lynze dazzles us with a tale about a bizarre possible sleep paralysis episode and then ends the show with a haunted house tale!

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.”
