A few days ago, when over to a friend’s place to watch a few horror movies which including the Blair Witch Project. I remember the first time watching the film in theater and enjoying those few moments of suspense, but now it does nothing much for me. I guess that what occurs with any movie you watched 15 years after its release. However, I did learn something new about the film that my friend had informed me about. The Blair Witch Project was inspired from an actual legend of a witch named Moll Dyer who lived in Maryland, USA, during the 17th century.
Happy Canada Day everyone! I should be back home this weekend with work wrapping up on Friday. Got some ideas for new articles to post and maybe starting a fictional section on the blog. While working, talked with a few individuals who also shared interests in the paranormal. They informed about a placed they visited called Stull Cemetery where it is said a portal to hell opens. Here is a YouTube video that explains more.
One of the first convention I ever attended was at a hotel in Toronto. There I have seen the latest in ghost hunting equipment, talked with several paranormal groups and learn of the newest research. I remember while attending a question and answer session with one of the guest speakers, someone asked what places would likely to be more haunted one could investigate. His answer was not the cemeteries or burial grounds, but areas that seen and experience the worst of human atrocities such as prison and battlefields. The example he gave which is the final installment of the most haunted places on earth series is Fort Gorge in southern Ontario.
Back in the mid 90s, one of the first ghost hunting groups I joined wanted to investigate this park that was believed to be the most haunted place in the city. There were stories told for decades of ghosts, moving shadows, strange lights, and other unearthly events occurring. The nights we spent there yielded nothing, but taught the valuable lesson of patience as the paranormal will not be active at your convenience. There are a few locations on the planet where the forces of the supernatural are said to never stop occurring and each night becomes a terror. In the second installment of the most haunted places on earth series, we look into the Ancient Ram Inn.
In every city, there is a place that local residents are aware of. Whether its a home, office, abandon building or a park everyone has heard the rumors of it being haunted. The story begins with a murder, suicide or some tragic death then decades later tales circulated of the paranormal activity within the area. Some would believe, while others would scoff, but everyone knows of the place. In a three part series, I wish to share the stories of several locations on earth whose haunted history has now become global known by first starting with Poveglia Island.
