“ALBERT BENDER AND THE MEN IN BLACK” and More Terrifying True Paranormal Stories! #WeirdDarkness

“ALBERT BENDER AND THE MEN IN BLACK” and More Terrifying True Paranormal Stories! #WeirdDarkness

IN THIS EPISODE: One of paranormal history’s most bizarre, worldwide, phenomena, the Men In Black, traces its origin directly back to one man, and his name was Albert. (The Albert K. Bender Story) *** Daryl Collins’ encounters demonstrate the sheer level of weirdness that surrounds the UFO phenomenon. (Alien Abductions and High Strangeness) *** A young girl sees an odd cube shape floating in her back yard among the trees. Was it extraterrestrial, paranormal, or just the wild imagination of a child? (Floating Multi-Color Box) *** What began as a joke to tease his sister, became all too real for the boy. (Ouija) *** Legend has it that a man murdered his wife and young daughter, before committing suicide. Has this caused the Banff Springs Hotel to become haunted? (Room 873) *** Frank Nash was not only an infamous outlaw, but he could escape just about any prison – even the prison of his own coffin after being dead and buried. (The Kansas City Massacre) *** Due to a murderous plot, 11-year old Terry Jo Duperrault spent 84 grueling hours alone at sea until she was rescued. (Orphaned At Sea) *** Moving into your own place alone for the first time is often an exciting moment in a young adult’s life – but it can also be a bit nerve-racking. But then, it probably doesn’t help if you move into a place that is haunted. (My Closet Door) *** The true story of Rasputin is full of both truths and lies. Was he a controversial mystic with healing powers, or an evil or misunderstood man? Maybe he was a little of both. (Rasputin) *** The Lake Club in Springfield, Illinois had its heyday in 1940s and 50s – and not even a lingering ghost could stop the parties.

“THE ANT PEOPLE AND THE ANUNNAKI” and More Creepy True Stories! #WeirdDarkness

IN THIS EPISODE: One of the most intriguing Hopi legends involves the ant people, who were crucial to the Hopi’s survival, not just once, but twice. We know this from the cave drawings they left behind. But who or what exactly were the ant people? (The Ant People and the Anunnaki) *** The red-faced ghost of Rollesby comes with an an identity crisis. People aren’t sure if the bloody face they see is the ghost of a murderer - or a victim of murder. (The Red-Faced Ghost of Rollesby) *** A woman is scared senseless when someone visits her home during a rainstorm… but it’s not just any passerby. (The Faceless Girl In The Striped Dress) *** One thing people just cannot seem to resist is a challenge – doubly so if you happen to be of the criminal persuasion. If they’re told a place is impregnable, it makes it an almost irresistible challenge. (Never Say Your Place Is Impregnable) *** Joachim Kroll, the "Ruhr Cannibal," terrorized West Germany for over 20 years, eating the flesh of his victims because "meat was expensive." (The Duisburg Man Eater) *** It is said that the Vatican is holding manuscripts that hold details about ancient races of man that used to populate the Americas – powerful rulers from the south, described as having white beards, and red eyes. Who could these people have been – and where have they gone? (The Mystery of the Ancient White-Bearded Red-Eyed Rulers) *** We all know the Nazis inflicted terror and death upon innocent people during WWII – but many don’t know just how horrifying the treatment was, particular the experiments they conducted on living prisoners.

“THE MONSTER OF LONDON” and More True Stories! #WeirdDarkness

“THE MONSTER OF LONDON” and More True Stories! #WeirdDarkness

In March 1788 Maria Smythe was attacked by a stranger who uttered some foul words, stabbed her, then ran. She survived, but was only the first of more than fifty women to suffer the same in London. This wasn’t Jack The Ripper – he wouldn’t come along for another 100 years. This was the Monster of London. (The Monster of London) *** On his first day walking to the bus stop alone before school, Etan Patz was abducted – and became one of the first children whose face ended up on a milk carton. (The Boy On The Milk Carton) *** If you are left-handed, you might be offended by one of the stories I have in this episode. But then, you lefties are all sinister anyway, right? (The Sinister Left-Handers) *** In 1827, young Maria Marten slipped into a red barn to meet her secret lover. It was the last time she would be seen alive. (The Red Barn Murder) *** It sounds like the makings of a paranormal slasher film – a woman is followed home one day by a paranormal entity – an entity that is angry because it used to be a human that was murdered. (The Haunting of Leah Lewis) *** Imagine your business is failing and you need to drum up customers, so you hire a consultant. “No problem,” he says. “All I need is a few things to get started… do you happen to have have any problems chopping off your closest living relative’s hand?” Welcome to Muti magic that some say still takes place even today. (Murderous Muti Magic) *** Edward Howard Bell was a murderer on the run and evaded capture for close to twenty years. When finally captured, authorities found out they didn’t just have a murderer… but a serial killer, who he claims had sent eleven young girls to heaven.

“THE MONSTER OF PARTRIDGE CREEK” and More Horrifyingly True Stories! #WeirdDarkness

“THE MONSTER OF PARTRIDGE CREEK” and More Horrifyingly True Stories! #WeirdDarkness

IN THIS EPISODE: Is it possible that dinosaurs lived recently? Like, in the 1900s? Even more bizarre… could they have been living in the 20th century in, of all places, the Arctic Circle? (The Monster of Partridge Creek) *** On May 3, 1881, Mena Muller and Louis Kettler took the ferry from New York City to Hoboken, New Jersey. They were going to be married in Hoboken, although they each had a spouse already. The legality of the marriage did not concern them; they were returning to Germany and would start a new life there. But somehow their plans went awry; that night Louis Kettler returned to New York alone and ten days later Mena Muller’s body was found in New Jersey with a fractured skull. (The Guttenberg Murder) *** Timothy Trespas lives in his home in Brooklyn. And I do mean in his home – as he rarely leaves the house, because he feels he is being stalked everywhere he goes by gangs of individuals. And he’s not the only one. (Gang Stalking Paranoia) *** They say walking is good for you… but that depends on where you walk, when you walk, and who you bump into, as one person found out late one night just trying to alleviate the boredom. (The Smiling Man) *** We’ve all slept in longer than we planned. What’s the longest you ever slept in? Three hours? Thirteen hours? Did you ever sleep three days straight? I think I see maybe two hands raised out there. You two are amateurs. One man slept 300 days out of the year. (Never Enough Sleep) *** A man had several unexplained incidents while hiking in a German forest. Shaken by the events, he eventually encounters a man with bright green eyes. Was this a Guardian Angel or was it a gray alien?
