The Nightmare: a shocking documentary about sleep paralysis

Its the middle of the night, you are trapped between sleep and wakefulness, you look around the room and everything seems to be in order, but a heavy feeling of worry overcomes yourself and experiencing shivering visual… this is the scary side of sleep paralysis.

Rodney Ascher has come to scare viewers with The Nightmare, a documentary about sleep paralysis, an condition that affects just over 6 out of every 100 people and consists of the inability to move any muscle in your body when you wake up, even though you remain fully conscious.

Those who had to suffer from sleep paralysis expressed the great desperation that they would feel during these episodes not being able to even ask for help.

The documentary The Nightmare explores the dark side of this spooky illness, interviewing 8 people on camera while bringing their experiences to life in a way that could conceivably induce nightmares in casual viewers.

One by one the sufferers share their story and their nightmares, some claim to have come face to face with a shadow man, who visits their bedroom every night walking right up to their bed, bent over, and stare into their eyes from a distance of about one inch.

Another of the subjects mentioned he was able to prevent having sleep paralysis by sleeping on his side. This position seemed rather uncomfortable after some time and the moment he decided to relax and sleep on his back, a red, tendril-y tentacle appeared on the ceiling.

When asked about including a more scientific approach to its documentary, Ascher said they found some scientific studies on this topic, such the one in the UK Mirror which had an interesting theory about how the entities people saw during their episodes could be a projection of their own internal body map and into their immediate surroundings.

However, Ascher did not think science could provide a reason why we see these specific experiences.

Have you ever experienced something such as sleep paralysis?

7 musicians who made a pact with the Devil

At some point in our lives, the thought of becoming famous has crossed our minds but it’s known that the road to success or fame is more complicated and unfair that the majority of people who try to follow such path, fail and fall by the wayside.

This situation is common since artists have to develop themselves in complicated environments to gain fame, however, there have been artists who apparently refused to endure such a difficult path and have chosen darker alternative: make a pact with the devil.

The thought that comes to mind is that these might be silly theories, although some artists themselves have admitted they had such pact… whether people, believe it or not, it’s their decision.

Niccolo Paganini

The 19th century was filled with magnificent musicians, and among them is Paganini, considered one of the best violinists in history. Since he was a child he showed great talent for the violin, but he did not find success until years later. When Paganini began to write extremely complicated works, during his performances he made sure that a deep dark shadow was behind him, a shadow not of his size but a much bigger one. For these reasons people began to claim that he had made a pact with the Devil.

This rumor was so popular that even after his death the Catholic Church refused to bury him until it finally happened several years later.

 

Giuseppe Tartini

A century before Paganini, Giuseppe Tartini had already offered his soul to the Devil, for the same reason. It is said that Tartini had always wanted fame as a musician, but he had never achieved it, his works and his performances were never worthy enough. Until one night Tartini had a dream in which he met the Devil, and in exchange for his soul, he was offered fame. The devil showed him music compositions never made before and rumors were spread that this was the reason why his greatest work was named “The Devil’s Trine”.

Tartini’s composition was so complex that, according to his contemporary musicians it was only possible to be performed if you had 6 fingers on each hand, something that was associated with the Devil and that would confirm Tartini’s supposed to dream.

Robert Johnson

Later on, during the 20th century, the rumors about musicians having pacts with the devil increased, the first one being Robert Johnson. An African-American musician who plays the Blues who as a child wanted to become a famous musician, but because of his humble origins it seemed like an impossible dream.

One night Johnson came face to face with the Devil himself, and he offered to show him songs in exchange for his soul, and Robert accepted. It is said that thanks to this pact he was given that exceptional handling of the instrument, as it seemed impossible for someone so young to play so well. This theory was reinforced with some of his songs, with stories about encounters and pacts with the Devil, as if he were telling his own story.

Jimmy Page

A member of the legendary Led Zeppelin band, he is one of those who are said to have made pacts in more modern times. The rumors began because of his strong interest in the occult and his interest in using the Ouija board. It is said that the price of the pact was not paid under his flesh but with that of the other members.

What supports this last theory is that several accidents and deaths have been linked to it, accidents were other people were involved, but never him.

Alice Cooper

Cooper is one of the artists who have openly accepted having a pact, after participating on a spiritual session he decided to change his name to the current Alice Cooper: he had sold his soul to the devil in exchange for fame. He later explained that his new name had been imposed on him in honor of a witch who in ancient times was burned at the stake.

Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan himself, the winner of multiple awards and even holder of a Nobel Prize for literature, confirmed on several occasions that all this fame and success was entirely due to a pact he made in his youth with “the big boss”, as he calls him.

The Rolling Stones

The members of the band, one of the longest and most famous in history, have been accused many times of satanic dealings and pacts with which they have achieved such fame. Although they have never confirmed it, their detractors assure it, mainly because of the satanic lyrics in their album “Their Satanic Majestic Request”, which shows clear sympathy for the obscure.

Apart from musicians like The Rolling Stones, it has been said that other artists such as Jimmy Hendrix were able to achieve fame through sinister pacts, because of their inhumane ability for their instruments. One of the most notorious lately has been Justin Bieber, attributing satanic meanings to some of his tattoos.

Have you heard of other musicians that made pacts with the Devil?

Baba Vanga’s chilling prophecies come true

There are people with the incredible gift of predicting the future and although many or most of us receive the information with some skepticism, there are those who have definitely managed to surprise us. Without a doubt, this is the case of “Baba Vanga”, one of the world’s most renowned seers for her accurate predictions…

She was a Bulgarian woman named Vangelia Pandeva, born in 1911, and shortly before she passed away in 1996, she revealed several future events that have left us impressed, because to this day they are still coming true.

One of those prophecies, which we are currently going through, is none other than the virus that now is spreading among the people in the world.

Baba Vanga’s incredible story began at the age of 12, when she had an accident that left her marked for life. A large tornado crossed her path, lifting her up and throwing her 400 meters into a field. It was a miracle that she was alive, however, as a result of the accident she gradually lost her vision and four years later she lost her sight completely.

At the age of 16 Baba received a divine gift, as she began to have visions in which several of them have had spooky successes, for example; The Twin Towers on September 11, communicating that “the American brothers would be attacked by steel birds. She also predicted the end of World War II, the decease of Princess Diana, and of course, the coronavirus, the global disease that would end many lives…

In the 1970s Baba made mention of the virus, prophesying that in the 20th century in the year of the twins “20 20”, a new disease would begin in China that would spread around the world and remove the lives of many people, especially the elderly. She even mentioned that the antidote would take a year to develop.

After the virus, she announced that in the same year there would be other scary events, one of which is a meteorite that would arrive to the earth (Nostradamus also warned about this event). This is actually quite spooky, as NASA is currently investigating a meteorite that is threatening to come close to the earth.

Before she passes away, she also anticipated and warned of other events that would occur later, such as a huge Tsunami that would wipe out parts of India, Pakistan, China, and Japan.

She also anticipated other disturbing events in the future, which we may not yet be able to understand, but from her successful record, many of us might think it could come true…

In 2028 a spaceship will be launched to Venus, we will fight famine and there will be new sources of energy, apart from the announcement of extraterrestrial life. By 2033 the ice at the poles will melt and the water level will rise, causing several civilizations to be lost. 2088 a new disease will attack the world and cause aging in seconds. 2111 people will merge with robots.

2183 Mars will be colonized and only the rich will be able to live there. 2256 A spaceship will arrive on Earth and bring new fatal diseases. 2378 There is a new race. 3803 Humans find a new planet but its climate ruins the organism that will develop mutations.

3805 A war begins between planets because of the resources each one has, of which millions of people lose their lives. 4599 humans achieve immortality, among other things, and finally 5079 the end of the world…

After reading this, do you believe Baba Yanga’s predictions, only time will tell…

Dracula’s Castle In Transylvania

Bran Castle, in Romania a huge medieval-style fortress located in the Transylvanian Alps. This architectural work is commonly identified as “Dracula’s Castle” since the novelist Bram Stoker was inspired by this medieval fortress, to write the descriptions of Count Dracula’s dwelling, in the classic gothic horror novel. This castle has become one of the main tourist attractions in the region, although specialists say that the Prince of Wallachia Vlad III Draculea (the Impaler), a historical figure who led to the fictional Dracula, never lived under its roof.

Although the writer Bram Stoker never set foot inside this palace, he was able to get to know it through English libraries which provided all the maps and reference books he needed, from this point onwards his ghoulish imagination did the rest and added some magic into the castle.

The Paris Catacombs

Upon entering the catacombs of Paris, you will have chills down your spine, for it is a place like no other in the world, here rest millions of souls At the end of the 18th century

The French government was facing major problems related to public health, so the cemeteries took the extreme decision to transfer the deceased to an underground site. The Paris authorities chose a site outside the capital: the former Tombe-Issoire quarries under the Montrouge plain.

The first transfers were made between 1785 – 1787 and later the area was consecrated as the “Municipal Ossuary of Paris”. From 1809, the catacombs were opened to the public by appointment.

The most cursed movies in Hollywood history

For over 100 years, a three-minute short film entitled Le Manoir du Diable (1896) was one of the first titles to go into scary movies. And although it is indisputable that watching such projects is quite entertaining, there are certain films that seem not only to be spooky, but also cursed…

Poltergeist (1982)

It is said that the Poltergeist’s curse not only affected the first film but the whole trilogy. Why and how did the curse begin? Supposedly, during the filming of Poltergeist real skeletons were used in some scenes, mostly in that pool scene.

The first victim to suffer from the movie’s curse was Dominique Dunne who played Dana Freeling. The actress lost her life because of her evil boyfriend.

Then it was Heather O’Rourke’s turn to play the sweet Carol Anne. After the filming of the third installment was over, the innocent girl with only 12 years old, suffered intestinal stenosis, which the doctors did not diagnose correctly and that is how the beloved Heather lost her life.

Sometime later Julian Beck, who was to appear in the sequel to Poltergeist, passed away at the age of 60 of cancer. Will Sampson, who interpreted an Indian doctor in the sequel, passed away ironically from post-operative problems. Although these last two deaths I leave it to you to think whether or not they are the work of the Poltergeist curse.

The Omen (1976)

What everyone thought would be one more movie that involved the supernatural, ended up becoming a real nightmare. The first tragedy was when actor Gregory Peck and the screenwriter of the film were hit by lightning several hours apart, while they were on a flight.

Due to these incidents, the production team decided to rent a private jet, but they did not get on it since shortly after taking off, it crashed into a vehicle that, of course, resulted in the death of the pilot’s wife and son.

In addition to all of these accidents John Richardson, the special effects manager of the film suffered a car accident along with his assistant Liz Moore, and the most macabre part of this is that the accident was quite similar to the scene filmed by Richardson.

The Exorcist (1973)

For those who might not know, The Exorcist is based on the real case of alleged demonic possession of a 14-year-old boy, but no one imagined that this would have an impact when filming The Exorcist.

The filming had to be postponed due to a fire that damaged the entire set of the McNeil house, but strangely only one room was left intact: Regan’s room. Also, actress Ellen Burstyn suffered severe spinal damage during the scene where she was thrown to the ground by Regan. The painful experience left her touched for life and her screams of pain we hear in the film are very

To these disturbing situations, we must add the deaths of 7 other members including Jack McGowran and Vasiliki Maliaros. Even some of the people involved in the making of The Exorcist passed away from strange causes.

Rosemary’s Baby (1968)

The reason this film has been accused to be cursed is mainly because of its filming location: the Dakota building. This building is known for being a haunted or cursed place, with a dark back history…

It is said that numerous satanic rituals, black magic, witchcraft were performed in the building which led to a series of paranormal phenomena and deaths.

Despite the dark history behind the building, the filming of Rosemary’s Baby was carried on without expecting the crew and cast to be affected by its curse. The first person to suffer was the composer of the BSO, Krysztof Komeda. The cause of his death was a brain clot, very similar to the cause that one of the characters passed away in the film, coincidence perhaps?

But the real tragedy was what happened to the actress Sharon Tate, a young woman pregnant woman, with 26 years old Sharon Tate was in her residence with some of her friends where all lost their lives by Charles Manson’s cult: The Manson Family.

Do you believe these movies are cursed?

Las 7 trompetas del Apocalipsis

La Biblia tiene escrituras proféticas que nos revelan cosas terribles, y se refiere a acontecimientos trágicos que sucederán antes del juicio final. Se dice que Dios envía 7 ángeles a la tierra y cada uno tocará su trompeta, esto con la finalidad de anunciarnos que el fin los tiempos está por llegar…

Enseguida se producirán fenómenos catastróficos como inmensos granizos de fuego que provocarán fuertes incendios, será el final de la tercera parte de los seres vivientes y habrá oscuridad en la tierra, como horribles plagas, entre otras cosas.

Antes de que esto suceda, desaparecerán las personas más limpias o “los siervos de Dios” para excluirlos de su furia, mientras que en la tierra dejará a los más desobedientes con la intención de que tomemos consciencia y arrepentirnos de nuestros actos, así mismo podremos elegir entre el camino del bien o del mal.

Los escalofriantes eventos ocurrirán durante las siete trompetas, donde según el libro del Apocalipsis serán los siguientes…

Primera Trompeta

Piedras de meteoritos cubiertos en llamas caerán sobre la tierra que al impactarse provocaran peligrosos incendios. Será la perdición de bosques, campos, cultivos y pastos invadidos entre llamas, y no solo eso, pues se dice que los volcanes también llegarán a hacer erupción.

Segunda Trompeta

Un enorme asteroide se introducirá a la órbita del planeta a gran velocidad que caerá sobre el mar, provocará la destrucción de barcos, cruceros, buques de carga y naves semejantes. También será la pérdida de muchas especies, pintando así sus aguas de color rojo.

Tercera Trompeta

Otro asteroide impactará sobre la tercera parte de nuestros ríos perjudicando así a las plantas de agua. El agua oscurecerá por los restos de asteroide y será fatal para el organismo, pues todas aquellas personas que lleguen a beberla perderán la vida envenenados.

Cuarta Trompeta

Después de las primeras tres trompetas, el día oscurecerá igual que la noche y esto se debe al material desprendido por los asteroides y el humo como la contaminación que circulará por el aire. En la cuarta trompeta comenzarán a destruirse los edificios, calles y carreteras. Perjudicará los sistemas de comunicación tanto como los de transportes y comenzará el caos.

Estas primeras cuatro trompetas abrirán muchos ojos a la humanidad, sin embargo las que vienen a continuación no son nada comparadas con las anteriores, pues las últimas tres trompetas son consideradas las más graves ya que entrará el reino del mal a nuestro mundo…

Quinta Trompeta

Satanás y su ejército de demonios llegarán a la tierra, pero no con aspectos horrorosos tal y como los pintan en las imágenes. Éste aparecerá como la imagen de Jesús, haciéndole creer a la humanidad que él fue quien envió todas las tragedias anteriores para que se arrepientan y lo adoren. Las personas que se nieguen a hacerlo serán atormentados de manera terrible y cruel, pero ofrecerá piedad a todos aquellos quienes lo sigan.

Sexta Trompeta

El ejército de Satanás crece con más fuerza mezclado de soldados demonios y en parte de personas quienes decidieron adorarlo por un poco de piedad. La tierra estará completamente destruida y será un campo de batalla donde su ejército será ordenado en acabar con la vida de todas las personas desobedientes que se opusieron a seguirlo, como última advertencia.

Séptima y última Trompeta

El mundo se sacudirá con un fuerte terremoto, acompañado de truenos y relámpagos. Llegará la gloria del señor iluminando los cielos, Cristo resucitará a los difuntos, y todos los fieles creyentes serán convertidos en seres inmortales. Podrán adorar al maestro que deseen, ya sea el de Jesús o Satanás. Durante esos tres años de destrucción, con la séptima trompeta llegarán los siete ángeles con las siete copas de la ira de Dios.

¿Y tú crees que el Apocalipsis esta cerca?

For all those The Walking Dead fans, this is the Ride you need to take!

Thinking about a zombie apocalypse is one of the deepest and possibly most underestimated fears that exist because thanks to pop culture this is presented to us basically as a fantasy, or something partially difficult to happen…

You wont believe the chilling stories of these ghost ships with unexplained cases

The ocean is that last corner of the world that even today we have not been able to decipher or discover completely. In ancient times it was a place full of legends and myths, some of which have been uncovered thanks to modern scientists, but others remain unsolved.

Some of them are the terrifying ghost ships, missing ships that suddenly reappeared, with full supplies and in perfect condition, but without any crew…

Mary Celeste

31 meters long and almost 300 tons in weight, a brigantine that crossed the Atlantic Ocean in 1872. When it was found, the ship was sailing at full speed, and despite being able to accommodate a large crew, when they boarded it they did not find a single soul.

Many theories pointed out that it could have been provoked by a pirate assault since the lifeboats were in place, however, there was something that made it all very mysterious: the food was served in the dining room.

And although you might think it might have been left there long ago, in a place like a ship that never stops moving and wobbling, how long could a bowl of soup have stood on the table? Without a doubt, one of the most inexplicable mysteries of the open sea.

The Octavius

The ship was returning from a transatlantic voyage to England when it was trapped by ice. Or at least that was what people believed since it had been given up for lost until in the year 1775, a whaling ship crossed the Octavius sailing aimlessly and they decided to board it.

When they did, the scene seemed unreal: the entire crew of the Octavius was there, but their bodies were frozen by the cold of the Arctic. The most frightening thing was to see the captain’s log, which was dated to the year 1762, which would result in a ship that had sailed aimlessly for 13 years with its lifeless crew.

Lady Lovibond

The sailboat departed in 1748 for Porto, Portugal, and the entire trip went smoothly until it reached the Goodwin Sands, an area of approximately 10 miles and which is full of fine sand, which when moving with the current creates changes in height affecting the boats.

They are so deadly that 2000 wrecks are known in the area. And even though the crew was experienced, there was something the captain could not foresee. One of his subordinates was in love with his wife, and anger over unrequited love led him to sabotage the rudder, causing the entire crew to perish in the quicksands.

Years later, another ship sailed across the sands again, and in the captain’s log, it was described that they had encountered a sailboat with the same characteristics as the Lady Lovibond, only that despite the maneuvering, there was no one on deck. The captain tried to follow him, but the ship slowly disappeared into the fog.

SS Baychimo

A cargo ship that worked efficiently for years, until in 1931 it was trapped in the ice of Alaska, being abandoned by its crew in the middle of a storm. When the weather cleared they wanted to return to the ship but it had disappeared.

Immediately it was considered sunken, however, sometime later rumors began to spread that it had been seen sailing along the coast of Alaska only to disappear again.

The last time the ship was seen was in 1969, almost four decades after the first disappearance.

Ryou-Un Maru

More recently, in the year 2012, a Japanese fishing vessel appeared on American territory. After traveling for an entire year allegedly without a crew. Because of the tsunami that hit Japan, the boat lost its way and ended up sailing and going around the world by itself.

And although the whereabouts of its crew have never been mentioned, if anyone was there at the time of the disaster, the ship was not ready for a supply boarding, and surely perished in the year adrift.

Which of these ghost ship stories did you find more interesting?
