    SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. Episode Notes:   Dan will have his usual two stories this week The first story follows a young man who decides to take a trip on LSD and ultimately, it costs his friend his life. But not how you think.  The second  story is set in Wisconsin -  the ghosts of Jay Road. A couple of possible deaths where the killers were never held responsible for their crimes seems to have led to some intense paranormal energy that still lingers in the area powerfully to this day. Lynze has a tale about a hat man who is not the usual kind of hat man. Perhaps he morphed into something else to wreak havoc on this young boy. Then,  a teenage boy gives into his girlfriend  and agrees to play with a spirit board. When that goes sideways, he regrets it.  New Merch: Awesome new "Gravedigger" Tee and Wall Art now in the bad magic store this week.  A creepy skeleton in a disturbed shallow grave, a really cool and interesting, realistic graphic tee.

    Episode NotesSCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. Episode Notes:  Dan has his normal two tales.  First we head to London to familiarize ourselves with the story of the Battersea Poltergeist. This case of one family's reports of ongoing paranormal activity got a lot of press back in the late 1950s. Recently, it's garnered interest again!  Next, we'll head to Sao  Paulo's, Dream Beach. A mix of horror lore and a modern encounter tale that is very creepy and entertaining.  Lynze shares the bizarre, sad and spooky tale of a nun who becomes pregnant and is forced to give up her baby, despite not wanting to. St. Ann's Retreat proves to be anything but a retreat. Then for her second tale, picking up where Dan left off on a previous story, Lynze also shares a tale of an awful curse!New Merch: This week is an Annabelle exclusive merch drop!

    SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING.Episode Notes: The first story this week is from some dark, strange corner of the web , an undocumented claim of paranormal horror at a setting we've never explored before. An escape room. It plays out like a sequence from a horror film we'd like to watch. And the second tale is a another creepy little lingerer, much like last week's curse tale. This week, Dan will share the tale of a mysterious disappearance and then reappearance. The details shared by the person who reappeared almost make you wish they would've stayed disappeared so we wouldn't have to hear what they say happened to them. Lynze has two great stories to tell. The first one is both creepy and confirming. A young child with a more than an active imagination shares some premonitions with her family. Then in her final tale,  she explores the mistake a father makes when he tries to contact his deceased mother, using an ouija board. New Merch: It's been a while since we dropped a sticker dump so we've got a few to choose from.

    SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING. Special Announcement:We here at Bad Magic Productions would like to take a moment to express our sincerest sympathies to all of those whose lives are forever changed by the senseless shootings in Buffalo, Uvalde and Tulsa. Our hearts are with you. Episode Notes:Dan has one giant story, and one little baby story. The first is an alien abduction claim, the second the claim of a curse. They both got a fair amount of press and you can find info on them from numerous sources. The first story is the basis of the 1993 sci-fi mystery film, Fire in the Sky. Was Travis Walton really abducted by and experimented on by  aliens? His story went on to be one of the most heavily documented alien abduction claim in US history. The second story involves claims of a curse. Did an actual witch curse a 35 year-old man in 1991? And did he die as a direct result? It sounds crazy - but the documented details of his haunting story are incredibly disturbing. Was Christopher literally scared to death?  Lynze has just one, big, fat story this week. She explores the possibility of a young man being caught up in something bizarre and disturbing. Could it be mental illness? Could it be far more sinister?  New Merch: New “Nightmare Man” tee and coffee mug in the store at badmagicmerch.com. It's disturbing.  We wouldn't want to see this face in the mirror.  Bad Magic Productions Monthly Patreon Donation:This month's charity is the Rainbow Railroad! Our donation amount is TBD, so stay tuned for that awesome amount! The Rainbow Railroad is a non-profit that assists those in danger due to their sexual orientation or gender identity.

This place is so infamously haunted, Zak Bagans and the Ghost Adventures team explored if for the series premiere of their incredibly popular ghost hunting show. Do several different ghosts - and possibly some demons as well - haunt an old honky tonk bar that sits on the grounds of a one time slaughterhouse and mafia hotspot? Then, Next, the very unusual story of Audrey Marie Santo. Was this poor girl some kind of vessel for paranormal - perhaps even heavenly - activity? Lynze's first tale is not only about shadow people. It's also about the hat man. And what happens when the shadow people and the hat man team up.  Continuing with dreams blending into reality, story two will have you wondering if dreams really do come true, in the paranormal sense. In the third and final fan story for this week, Lynze shares an empowering tale of putting a stinky, smoker ghost in his place.New Merch:  Cool new merch hitting the bad magic store this week.  It's a pretty interesting design.

    SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY.

Can completing a ritual at The 100 Steps Cemetery actually conjure up a devil of some kind who reveals to you the nature and time of your death? The backstory followed by a modern encounter are the combo for that one. Then we travel from Brazil, Indiana to the ACTUAL country of Brazil.  Perhaps some Brazilian paranormal force helped guide Dan this week?

    SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENINGDan's first is a VERY creepy true crime/paranormal combo. Little warning for those who listen with their kids. Gonna be talking about some of the crimes of one of America's most infamous serial killers - Ted Bundy. He raped, tortured, killed, and terrorized in real life. That we know for sure. Does his spirit continue to instill fear in the living from the afterlife? Then Dan takes us to just outside of Kingman, Arizona to explore the legend of Slaughterhouse Canyon. Did a horrible tragedy occurring there well over a century ago lead to the canyon becoming intensely haunted? Lynze has two very interesting tales to share this week. Her first story examines a possible on-going and building haunting at Mac Dill Airforce Base. A couple has been experiencing a few things here and there but it all seemed harmless. Recently, a dark figure was spotted. Is this getting worse? Then we visit a young girl with an imaginary friend, or so it seems to be her imagination from the outside, looking in. In her reality, she is playing with a very real boy. So which is it? New Merch: Brand new 'Wrong Turn' tee, featuring the classic "Where are we?" situation: finding yourself in a car, lost on a dark & lonely backwoods road, destined for impending horror.

    SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENINGThis week both of Dan's tales are demon related. At least according to those involved. The first story comes from the Warren files. A lesser known tale of demonic infestation from Ed and Lorraine's seminal book “The Demonologist”. We head to Vermont in 1974 to hear the disturbing tale of the Donovan family haunting. One woman's Ouija board use seems to have led to contact with something that was NOT what it said it was - something that would terrorize the entire Donovan family for months. His next tale is known as the Exorcism of Gina. In 1991, ABC News' iconic exposé news program 20/20 would air coverage of the exorcism of a teenage girl identified only as “Gina.” She'd be cured -  BUT - did broadcasting what was supposedly her demonic possession lead to the demonic possessions of others? Lynze has a possible hat man sighting. A young mother notices the familiar feeling of her home feeling "off". The feeling escalates to an interaction with something. What does it want- her or her baby? Wrapping up the stories for this week is a tale about a family curse and possibly a warning about the family curse from a long dead family member. It all builds to a super spoopy ending!  New Merch: Black cats can be bad omens - but what about 3 eyed black cats?  What if there was a shirt with a black cat on it?

    SCARED TO DEATH IS EXPLICIT IN EVERY WAY. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHILE LISTENING.Dan's top story is one of the scarier tales we have heard in awhile. A man in Missouri is pulled into a dark mystery in his new home when his nightmares become real. If you have an old cellar this one might keep you from going down into it for quite awhile. The second story is historical A 19th century primarily-London based tale of the boogeyman known as Spring-Heeled Jack. Very odd and interesting. It's hard to figure out exactly what the hell was going with this entity that gave a lot of kids - and quite a few grownups as well it seems - nightmares back in Victorian England. Lynze has her two tales of terror as usual. Her first takes place in some military barracks with an entity that shows up during a party. Then to wrap it all up, Ms. Martha, a spirit living in a historical exhibit, makes it known that she doesn't appreciate  anyone touching her things.  New Merch: Very cool new tee in the Bad Magic store today.

And then a few hours later, Ron Gillispie was found dead behind the wheel."Dan has two out of the ordinary tales this week. He first shares with us the story of the Circleville Letters. A bizarre occurrence  of random people who are all connected in some way, receiving letters from an anonymous sender. Much like The Watcher, we don't really know what's going on. Is it paranormal or just some creep, trying to wreak havoc? Next up, five young men disappeared in north central California  after attending a college basketball game, and why they went to where some of their remains would later be found is still a mystery. Crazy twist at the end of that story that makes it real, real creepy. Lynze has some great stories for us too! Three sisters all see and hear something in their home. Could it be their imaginations or are they really seeing this? Lastly, a fun and spoopy look at an old parlour game called "Up, Table Up."Standup: Also - if you want to see a very different side of Dan than you see here, his Symphony of Insanity standup tour is back and running.

    “What's your friend's name?” she asked her daughter, hoping for something innocuous. Maybe the name of a pet, like Fluffy, or one of her friend's names from school. “Mr. Gordy,” Heidi replied. “We play outside on the swings and in my room.” Dan's first story covers the tale of the infamous Wyrick House. Although there isn't much known about the actual location of their home in Georgia, there is enough evidence of a haunting that an entire movie was based around this family's horrifying experience with a couple spirits. Dan's second story follows characters Maria and Akiko, who were simply looking to take a relaxing trip out of town. But their VRBO experience was anything but relaxing. Their woodsy cabin quickly turned into Hell on Earth. For Lynze's half of the episode, we explore some truly terrifying photos sent in by a listener, and then we wrap things up by spending some time in a haunted warehouse.

Her eyes turned from brown to pitch black, and a sinister grin split her face. I jerked back in shock! Her face changed back to the beautiful girl she was before. Did I really see what I thought I had a moment ago?"Dan has two New England-based horror stories, a couple of areas with haunted origins going back to Puritan times. First, we'll visit Devil's Hopyard state park in Connecticut. What may haunt the woods of this park at night? Has it been haunting that area for centuries? These questions lead to a modern encounter story. Next, we'll head to Portsmouth, New Hampshire's South Street Cemetery. So many entities seem to inhabit this area's extremely haunted space and we'll meet several. Lynze has some creepy tales to share too! She kicks it off with a possible twin doppelgänger.  A woman goes her whole life not knowing she was a twin while also seeing "herself" on and off for many years. Closing out the show is a simple story of someone or something knocking at the window.

His  big second story is the tale of Maurice Theriault. A name that probably rings familiar to a lot of horror film fans. Infamous demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren of the Conjuring universe were part of an exorcism on Maurice in May of 1985. Lynze has her usual two stories but this week, it's a little bit different. She shares encounters from the same fan who has two unrelated experiences about 10 or so years apart.

    "And then he saw something out of the corner of his eye. A man was running through the woods… with a look of fear on his face. He seemed to be definitely running away from something. Or from someBODY. Joe was about to call out to the man to see if he needed help when his mouth dropped. He saw, just as Vicky had before - that the man had no legs."Dan has two tales that both involve a haunted place. Both involve numerous people claiming to see or hear the same ghost or ghosts. For the first, shorter story, we'll head to the UK, down by Portsmouth just North of the Isle of Wight, to explore the ghosts of Hinton Ampner. A story of hauntings that  supposedly occurred back in the 18th century. Then, we are going to look into the crimes of midwest serial killer, Herb Baumeister, who buried numerous victims on his property in Indiana just north of Indianapolis in Carmel. Did his murders trap numerous spirits on Fox Hollow Farm, the beautiful estate where he lived and very, VERY likely murdered? Little true crime/haunted place mashup.  Lynze has two excellent stories and follows in Dan's footsteps with a little warm up and then a big scare. For the appetizer of spoops, she takes us to a college library where something or someone wants to have a few private moments, practicing their music. In her second tale, you best stay until the very end, because it all comes together ever so neatly. A young girl purchases an old vanity and within one day, she begins to see someone in the mirror. But whom? New Merch: Got some new, VERY cool merch in the bad magic store this week. Our very own STD cryptid! You gotta look at this thing to take it all in. A flower for a head.

    "Now my mother stopped convulsing and sat up and got face to face with my grandmother. But her face did not look like it should have. And she spoke in Camila's voice. She screamed in Spanish, “I'll take EVERYONE FROM YOU, WITCH!” Dan's first story is not one that will jump right out and terrify you but it sure is bizarre and creepy. The Lawson House saw much tragedy around it over the years, literally. A fatal train crash and a series of fires that did not involve the house itself but perhaps came to be the place the lost souls took up residence. One day, a bizarre collection of mannequins arrived on the porch of the Lawson house, with out explanation. Where did they come from? Who was dressing them? Propping them up? Adjusting the poses? No one ever took credit for it and then one day, it just stopped. Weird. Then in story two, Dan takes us to South America to Argentina to explore a possible family haunting, foul play and multiple deaths. A family divide, a disagreement goes next level when one family member not only (possibly) kills one family member but also comes for others after her own death. It's a wild ride and will have you wondering if you should be making offerings to the saint of death. Lynze has 3 tales this week, so fun! She starts off with the most skeptical family, a family of non-believers who eventually all see the same inhuman woman in their dreams. Who is she and what is she doing there is beyond anyone's knowledge but this family works together to attempt to banish her for good. Then, off to Ohio for a haunted bar tale. A little palette cleanser of a story, not super scary but definitely makes you wonder. And then lastly, a pair of teens harass a neighbor who is possibly a witch. Did they take it too far when they cussed her out? Does she want revenge? New Merch:A new vintage halloween decoration inspired tee in the bad magic store this week. A Grim Reaper tee!

    "He began growling, a deep, rumbling, angry sound. .. After a long moment, I realized that these were not my husband's eyes at all. They were the darker, glistening, furious eyes of another species.”Dan kicks off this weeks episode with his standard two. One long one, one short one today. And neither is a ghost story, actually. The first is about a man from England, Bill Ramsey, known in paranormal circles as “the Southend Werewolf.” Dan shares the very strange story of how he arrived at that moniker. The second story is about a mysterious disappearance, known as The Kinross Incident. We haven't heard one of those in awhile and we all know how they panic Lynze!  What happened to a US fighter jet and the two men inside it over Lake Superior back on November 23rd, 1953?Lynze has two of the best, scariest fan tales! As all kids do, some children are having a great time playing a game of hide-and-seek. It's all fun and games until they have an unexpected person join their game. We are all afraid of the basement and with this story, it becomes more clear why! Then off to Columbia where a police officer takes home a little something. A police officer working during the reign of Pablo Escobar sees more than his fair share of horrible things. What he never planned on was bringing one of those awful things home with him. New Merch:The STD lockup collection is now available for you to check out at www.badmagicmerch.com.

They made it a few more paces, when Louise heard the distinct sound of a third person's footsteps, directly behind her. Louise felt a hand reach out and firmly grip the back of her arm."Dan starts with  his two stories, like normal, but they're a bit bigger than usual. They both take place outside and are both  classic ghost stories. The first comes from England -  Wychwood Forest - and the ghost of Lady Amy Dudley. Does the spirit of a woman who died long ago still roam the forest, searching for the man who may have had her killed? And can she kill? The next story takes us to Southern Oregon - to an old cemetery in Cottage Grove - a town Lynze and Dan once drove right on by when moving from Santa Monica to Couer d'Alene. Did a young couple confront a ghost who still wants to guard his land?The second half of the show, Lynze brings us a story of a person who tells their tale of surviving an exorcism. So often on this show, there are questions about exorcisms and what might happen afterwards. Just last week, Dan told the tale of a woman who died soon after her exorcism. But not this guy. He lives to tell us all about it!  Her second tale is beyond creepy. A young couple moves into an apartment, meet all of their neighbors- except one. On a seemingly regular night, both people see two different people occupying the neighboring apartment. Are either of them real? New Merch:Brand new Tales Of The Dead Tee in the bad magic store now.

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.

    "After a few days of this, the monk and his nuns now carried her from her room and into the church, chaining her to a cross with her arms stretched out in a crucifixion pose while they doused her with holy water at the alter of Christ.  As they watched her arms strain against the ties, they wondered if they were hurting her and should untie her." The first story is known as the The Tanacu Exorcism. What everyone agrees on with this story, is that in the Spring of 2005, a young nun named Maricica Cornici died after collapsing after being tied up for about a week in a Romanian monastery. What there is a lot of disagreement on is what led to her death. Did a monk and some nuns horribly handle a case of schizophrenia? Or - was this truly a case of demonic possession? The second story takes place in Garfield Heights, Ohio. An anonymous woman bought her first house and joy and pride quickly turn into paranormal terror. Very unique type of haunting that I can't set up much without giving something away. But this one is probably gonna be hard to listen to if you hear it right before you go to bed and you live alone. Story three brings us to Cuba! A young girl takes a horse back riding trip while on a family vacation. She discovers what appears to be a stone altar and, unfortunately, removes a necklace from the stone altar. By doing so, she interrupts a tradition in Santeria that helps spirits move on to the other side.

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. New Merch: The Spoopy B*tch Collection is now in the store after much demand!!

According to northern legends from southern Alaska , the Kushtaka  are shape shifting creatures that are half man, half otter.  Not a combo that is probably going to immediately strike fear into anyone hearts when that's all you hear. When you think of an otter, you most likely think of a cute, water-loving little creature known for floating on its back and eating shellfish. But the Kushtaka is not some cute little creature. It's a large, bigger-than-a-man, soul-stealing shape-shifter. After Alaska, we journey to Lancaster, Ohio to hear the tale of the Mudhouse Mansion. The history of this house is a troubled one that begins with a tortuous slave owner who abused one of his slave so severely that one night, the slave murdered the slave owner and his entire family. Thus begins the Mudhouse's many bizarre activities. In the back half of the show, Lynze has two tales. The first one, though small, is mighty. A woman has what would seem to be is a lucid dream, at least that's what she thought. She thought the creepy man with wide grin and black hat were simply a nightmare. That is until her child told her not to follow the man. How could her child know about her dreams before she even spoke of them? Was it a dream afterall? Then a story of a haunted trailer! Lynze loved this story because while it had a few moments of being tense, it was really more about confirmation of what a ghost might be capable of that is not necessarily terrifying. New Merch: New year, new merch!

    "The monster dug his claws into the hood of their car, the claws making a horrible screeching sound as they dented the metal. It used its grip to propel itself upward, jumping on the roof of the car with a loud, crunching thud. “Drive!” Lori screamed!This is it, Creeps and Peepers, the last episode of 2021!! We truly don't know how to thank you for making us one of the most successful horror podcasts out there! Are gratitude is real and your support means everything to us. We wish you and yours a healthy new year! In Dan's first story, we go to Aruba, Jamaica, ohhhhh I wanna take ya... WAIT. J/K! Just going to Aruba. A married couple takes a trip to reconnect and bring back the spark. All was going well until the final day of their trip. Jordan, the husband, insisted they leave on a late night flight and in order to make their flight. And to save time, they take a short cut. This short cut was the worst decision he made on that trip and it serves as a reminder to always trust your gut! Then off to Nebraska to Seven Sisters Road. A little road with a big history. A brother killed his seven sisters by luring them out, one at a time, to seven different hills where he hanged them. That energy seems to be hanging around to this day. A couple takes a short cut, just like the couple in Aruba, and will come to wish they hadn't!Lynze has 3 stories this week! Going out with a bang! Her first story is creepy BUT you need to look at the picture to really have it sink in as to why finding 20 wooden crosses in a clearing during a hike is so damn scary. Then in story two, we visit a family who has two ghost kids living in their house. They seem to be totally harmless until one night, which is always how it goes. This time though, the kids might be the only thing that can save them. And then wrapping up 2021, a story about an encounter in insane asylum during a routine training!  Thank you for continuing to send in your stories, Creeps and Peepers! Please keep doing so.

    "And when they entered the house they were “immediately greeted with spontaneous banging and knocking from around the house, but the focus seemed to be in Gottliebin's bedroom.”To Germany! A story of a very bizarre and long possession are what Dan has to share at the top of the show. Lutheran Minister Johann Christoph Blumhardt was born July 16th, 1805 in Stuttgart, Germany. He would live in Germany until his death at the age of 74 on February 25th, 1880. Blumhardt became a famous faith healer in his day - and his fame began with a book he wrote, Blumhardt's Battle, published in 1850 - a book that journaled his 1842 exorcism of Gottliebin  Dittus, a young woman from the small German village of Möttingen. And Gottliebin experienced, if we are to believe Blumhardt's account - an incredibly intense and prolonged demonic possession.  Then Dan keeps the holiday tradition of an old timey Victorian era horror story to wrap up this holiday edition of Scared To Death.  Lynze takes a slight departure this week telling two similar tales that offer more confirmation and comfort in what might be on the other side. In her first tale, she shares the story of a man who spends the night at The Villisca Axe Murder house and brings home an attachment, but it's not what you think. Then in her second share, she tells us the story of a mother who lost her life but helped her daughter save her own. It's a sad story with a happy ending and just enough spoop in the middle! Bad Magic Virtual Gathering 2021: We record in advance so we can only hope y'all had a great time at the 2021 Bad Magic Virtual Gathering!  Thank you for continuing to send in your stories, Creeps and Peepers! Please keep doing so.
