Los Angeles Haunted Hayride 2018 at purportedly Haunted Griffith Park

In the parlance of the Halloween trade, it would be better to say Melissa Carbone didn’t have a dream as much as a nightmare: scare the heck out of people in an old-fashion Fall Harvest/Halloween kind of way. The former LA-based Clear Channel Media executive, who was their youngest general sales manager ever, always loved […]

Guest Post: Haunting Legends of Fairmont’s Banff Springs Hotel In Canada

Back in October of 2017, we sent out a post called “A Spooky Call To Action: Share Your Experiences With Us.” One person answered our call. That’s ok, we remained hopeful. The person was our our good friend of the blog, Joseph D. Kubal.  He’s the co-creator of the sensational Curious Traveler Route 66 blog. Today, we […]

Gail O’Grady and Reginald VelJohnson Share Their Celebrity Ghost Stories

As we gear up into the October Halloween season, we’ve got some Spooky ghost stories for you. As we’ve shared before, some of Spooky Things Online’s most popular posts have been regarding the TV show “Celebrity Ghost Stories.” We liked the show lot, which ran from 2009 to 2014, not because of the celebrity aspect […]

Spooky: Who Was Morgan Robertson And Did He Predict the Titanic tragedy, Pearl Harbor and the A-bomb long before they happened?

For Morgan Robertson, the future was now. “Now” for him was his lifespan, 1861-1915. I’m no expert on seers, but writer Morgan Robertson’s seeming predictions of the Titanic’s tragic sinking, 14 years beforehand, and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, 27 years in advance, seem straightforward.  His writings were pretty specific with respect to the Titanic tragedy, […]

Erik Estrada’s CGHS: Celebrity Ghost Story

Some of Spooky Things Online’s most popular posts have been regarding the TV show “Celebrity Ghost Stories.” We liked the show lot, which ran from 2009 to 2014, not  because of the celebrity aspect alone,  but because the show featured four quick-hitting and to-the-point ghost stories in one hour. And they were done in a […]

TV’s Spooky Outlander Show and Time Travel Conundrums

TV’S OUTLANDER Now before I get into my problem and questions with the very good Starz time-travel television series “Outlander,” allow me to digress for some needed context. TIME-TRAVEL Time travel. It’s such a romanticized and spooky concept. Haven’t each and every one of us dreamed about what we could do with the opportunity to […]

Spooky TV:  Gotham, s01, ep06 – It’s All About The Goat

Greetings, spookyfriends!  Two weeks ago Sunday was November 2, the Day of the Dead, which may prompt visions of dancing skeletons dressed in their over-the-top best and sugar skulls for a gruesome treat.  If you’re of Hispanic extraction (Mexican, mostly), you probably would have been picnicking in the cemetery and remembering your lost loved ones, […]
