Voodoo Nightmare
Dec 18 2019 82 mins  
“One day I’m gonna die - and I’m gonna take the whole town with me.” A quote from today's first story. Our first tale is the legend of Louisiana voodoo priestess Julia Brown's curse in 1915. Did she take a whole town with her when she died? And does her ghost still haunt the Manchac swamp? Our second story revolves around the Hmong culture's belief in - and fear of - the tsog tsuam, "the evil spirit who smothers." Can this creature quite literally scare you to death? Can a nightmare kill you? Thank you for sending in your stories, Creeps and Peepers! Please keep doing so.

The Unknown
Dec 11 2019 77 mins  
"Opening my eyes, I saw the same man, this time wearing a strange grin. His teeth were white enough to see in the dark... I started shaking." A quote from today's first story. Our first tale - a collection of supposed sightings - is about a creature known as “The Grinning Man.” What is it and what does it want? Our second story is about an entity known mostly as “The Elemental.” Some believe it haunts the grounds of Ireland’s “Leap Castle”, and may be tied somehow to this old castle’s very bloody history.

"Let Them Sleep."
Dec 04 2019 74 mins  
"Becca was running down the hall as fast as she could. She felt the powerful malevolent energy behind her. What would happen if it caught her?" A quote from today's second story. In our first account, we go over the disappearance of Frederick Valentich from Australia in 1978. The last thing he communicated to air traffic control from the cockpit of his Cessna was a UFO harassing his plane. And then he disappeared forever. Our second tale takes us to Kentucky where a ten year-old girl and her single mom were pushed out of a home by strange and powerful poltergeist activity in the late 1980s. And then Lynze shares three different fan true horror submissions. Which story will leave you feeling Scared to Death? Thank you for sending in your stories, Creeps and Peepers! Please keep doing so.

They Won't Leave
Nov 27 2019 71 mins  
“'Are you living or dead?' asked Father Theo. 'I am dead,' said the voice." A quote from the second of today's two tales. Our first story is our second black-eyed children encounter report. Why is a married couple still haunted by briefly meeting two black-eyed children over thirty years ago? Our second story is a summary of the most heavily documented Catholic exorcism in US history - the early 20th century exorcisms of Wisconsin's Emma Schmidt. Was a woman's soul antagonized by demons and even the Devil himself for roughly three decades? Also, Lynze reads two creepy listener-submitted stories today.

Cursed
Nov 20 2019 68 mins  
"If the witnesses were correct, Tedford would have disappeared from his seat as the bus was traveling down Route 7, while it was driving through the Bennington Triangle..." A quote from the first of today's two tales. Our first story is about a string of disappearances and other unsettling occurrences that have taken place over the years in Vermont's Bennington Triangle. What is happening in those woods? Our second story revolves around Harold the doll. A seemingly cursed and haunted object that some claim has spoken, threaten, hurt, and even killed. What evil is trapped inside this old doll and how did it get there? Also, an especially spooky story was sent in by one of our listeners. Which tale, if any, will leave you feeling scared to death?

Get Out!

"She heard something make it to the door outside their room and then stop. And then she heard and saw the doorknob jiggle - like someone was just about to let themselves in, and she screamed..." A quote from today's second of two tales. Our first tale is the story of Popobawa, a cryptid that is reported to have had attacked several villagers on Zanzibar's Pemba Island several times since the 1970s. Our second story takes us to Haverfordwest, Wales, where a young couple gets the deal of a lifetime on a downtown home that quickly turns from their dream house into their worst nightmare.

"...What if Sallie and that woman were the same thing? All part of the same evil inside that house..." A quote from today's second of two tales. Our first tale is the story of a single mother and her young son who have an unfortunate encounter with the Hat Man. Our second story takes us to Atchison Kansas's Sallie House - billed as the most haunted house in America. Is it? Listen and find out.

Satanic Panic
Oct 30 2019 68 mins  
"...in order to keep being protected, they had to pay a Satanic toll of sacrificial blood and human souls..." A quote from today's second of two Satanic tales. Our first story is one of a young Wiccan who believes that four decades ago he followed his curiosity about the dark side of the occult straight into Hell itself. Our second story goes over some very spooky and real crime details revolving around a small group of Satanists who sacrificed at least three women to Lucifer in some haunted woods near Fall River, Massachusetts in 1979 and 1980.

Burned Alive
Oct 23 2019 79 mins  
"...late one night, laying in his bed, surrounded by that strange oppressive feeling... a new source of fear emerged from the darkness..." A quote from today's second tale. Our first story offers a further explanation of one of the items in our studio - a Dybbuk box. I'll explain the historical basis for this box and I’ll also share a modern tale involving this ancient monster trapper. Our second story involves a young boy who witnessed the terrible death of a stranger, and then appears to have been either haunted by the angry spirit of that unfortunate man or by some other dark entity that preyed on his memory of that gruesome death in order to inflict further psychological harm. Hope both tales leave you Scared to Death! We start sharing stories next week. Please send your stories to [email protected] (we will start reading some in future episodes).

Haunted From the Future
Oct 16 2019 60 mins  
"The face of the woman inched towards her own as if it would soon open its mouth and devour her. Beatrice closed her eyes and began to pray..." A quote from today's first tale - the exploration of the possibility that perhaps some apparitions are not the remnants of the once living, but the psychic projection of the still alive. Was a Cornish woman named Beatrice somehow presented with a vision of an evil encounter that had never happened but would years later? Our second story is the tale of Kentucky's Carl Pruitt, the "Chain Strangler." Urban legend or real revenant? A mixture of both? If a ghost can go bump in the night, or turn off a light, or move items around a room - can it also kill you?

The Beast
Oct 09 2019 64 mins  
"He awoke in the middle of the night to what he described as 'a man with big black eyes, a thin face with animal features and jagged teeth, pointed ears, horns, and hoofs' standing above him..." A quote from today's second tale - the "Devil Made Me Do It" demonic possession of both David Glatzel and Arne Johnson in 1981 that ended in another man's murder. Our first tale is "The Northfleet Horror," a story of an incredible amount of malevolent poltergeist activity that caused three separate families to move out of a building in Northfleet, England in 1962.

Creepy stories that will have you second guessing if you're really alone, with a great husband/wife dynamic that leaves you excited for the next episode!

jayzachary3 May 19 2020
Love these stories- not sure about the validity of some of them but like Dan says if just one of them is true there's a possibility they all could be; and love the listener submitted stories, it adds a very personal touch. Look forward every week to Scared to Death!
