The Ruins


Dan’s first of two stories takes place  in sunny Costa Rica. A college student explores the supposedly very haunted The Ruins – the remnants of old and massive church – and claims to come face to face with its infamous ghost.  Then, for the next story, we head to Connecticut to go over the legend of Hanna Cranna aka The Wicked Witch of Monroe.  Lynze has two tales that are thematic around driving and lost time. Her first story features a possible skin walker sighting and her second story will make you think twice about pulling off the freeway to find a restroom in the middle of the night, by yourself.

New Merch:  Brand new to the Bad Magic Merch store this week, a cool REDACTED tee & Zip up Hoodie. Cool retro typewriter style text design with large hand drawn Redaction marks. It’s cool to imagine Scared to Death being redacted in some blacklist government paranormal or alien program as being a source of study or psyop.  Head to

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.”
