The Curse Of La Patasola


Dan has a longer amount of story content this week, getting us ready for Halloween!  A murderous monster from South America and a disturbing disappearance from North America. We don’t want to give too much away about either. The first, if anyone is familiar, revolves around La Patasola, a vampiric entity that allegedly dwells in the forests of Columbia.  And the second story is the 1981 disappearance of an Ohio woman named Cindy Anderson. Lynze also has a huge amount of horror this week! Her first tale is the strange tale of a young woman who meets a household ghost that seems to be stuck in one portion of the house. Then, to close out the episode, Lynze tells us about a very creepy doll family that feels all too real.

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.”
