The true story of “The Haunting in Connecticut”

Know the story of the horror movie “The Haunting in Connecticut”.

In 1986 it´s the year in which the darkness begins that a New York family was about to face, Philip the eldest son of the Snedeker family is diagnosed with cancer so the family decides to move to Connecticut where the right hospital for him is located. The new house was the worst part of this story.

When renting the house it came with a condition, not throwing any object that is in the basement and that were memories, which were made up of all the stuff that a coroner needs to embalm. The basement was a funeral home from 1936 to 1980.

The basement where Philip and his brother’s room would be, was next to the old funeral home, only sliding doors separated them. Philip from the beginning began to say that there was an evil presence in the house, constantly listening to a voice of a man in the basement that said: “Philip come here”. His mother Carmen thought they were hallucinations, but he wasn´t the only one who saw things, the younger sister saw spirits in the mirror.

In an early morning Philip and his brother saw three sinister men in the darkness, who stared at them and whispered something awful, then the entities began to laugh and one of them threw one of his toys against the wall, breaking it into a thousand pieces. On another occasion, Philip came to see a boy dressed as Superman, then they learned that this boy was embalmed in the house and in his funeral he was using the superhero costume.

One of the most horrible episodes was, when under the influence of a dark entity, Philip tried to make evil things to a cousin who lived with them, so Philip was admitted to a psychiatric hospital for 45 days.

Time passed and unfortunately for its economic situation, the family couldn´t leave the house, even if the paranormal manifestations became stronger and stronger; things moved by themselves, there were inexplicable noises and the beds vibrated; It was then that they had to resort to help the Warren’s couple.

While the paranormal investigators arrived at the house, Lorraine visited the basement alone, and had a vision of a large man who was manipulating and moving the bodies. Lorraine realized that not only did they face a tormented spirit, but a demon, so she and her husband Edward called Priest Timothy Conlan, who performed an exorcism to end that diabolical entity.

After all that torment, the Snedeker family found calm, Philip found himself defeating cancer and they moved out of the house.

The haunted Stanley Hotel … The true story of “The Shining”

Get to know the true story of “The Shining”, one of the most memorable horror movies of all times.

It all started with a dream … during a Halloween night in 1974, Stephen King dreamed his son was screaming, with a deep horror on his face as he was chased by a fire hose, along the hall of a hotel.

When Stephen King woke up, he went to the window of the hotel where he was staying and began to admire the rocky mountains that adjoined a black sky, and this was the moment where he was inspired to write one of the greatest horror stories: “The Shining”.

The hotel where this crucial episode happened in the life of Stephen King and many of us, horror fans, is the Stanley Hotel, located in Colorado, United States, where not only King had a dream, but he experienced paranormal events with his wife.

The hotel is known for being one of the most haunted in North America; This place was another element that inspired the writer to create his creepy novel.

During the stay of King and his wife, who accompanied him, they slept in room 217, and although it seems difficult to believe, they were the only guests inside the sinister hotel, since the tourist complex only opened its doors a few months in the year, and closed shortly before winter came, by October 30 when the couple arrived, it was already the end of the season.

The first mysterious event that the couple lived, was when they returned to the room shortly after dinner in the desolate dining room, because upon entering, all their belongings were messy, as if someone had shaken their bags, but not someone human, because the employees said that nobody entered.

Another paranormal incident happened during the morning when King walked by himself along the corridors of the hotel, he saw how the carpet moved as if by it was being controlled with magic.

This is the information that Stephen King shared with the media, however, the dark legend tells that he also had an encounter with ghost children wandering in the hotel, in addition to attending a party, where the other guests were spirits from beyond.

And although Stephen King’s story ends here and his visit to the haunted place, it´s not where the hotel’s story ends with respect to the paranormal, as both hotel employees and guests, they report having witnessed spooky manifestations. Children’s spirits living inside the hotel, silhouettes of children crossing the walls, the voices and laughter of little ones rumbling between the rooms and the long corridors of the hotel.

Another type of manifestations is that the belongings of the guests are inexplicably moved from the place, noises of invisible presences emanate inside the rooms, the lights blink sinisterly and the sink taps open themselves.

But without a doubt, the paranormal focus of the hotel is room 418, currently closed, because there lives an evil ghost that in the past frightened guests during the early morning to leave, always appearing furious in the corner of the room.

Despite the fact this hotel remains haunted, it is still quite popular and you can even take a tour, if you gather enough bravery to do it. 

Daily tours are incredibly popular, four different types of historical and haunted tours throughout the year. The Historic Stanley Night Tour takes you on a haunting evening through different dark spaces from the hotel, it introduces you to the active phenomena and spirit folklore that embraces this 100+-year-old hotel. 

There is also another, more friendly tour: The Historic Stanley Family Friends Tour with a more fun approach, it is an interactive tour in which kids can participate in very special I-spy games and other activities. 

A third type of tour with a more historical approach is the day tour, where you will be able to explore the hotel while learning about its background story and also its impact on pop culture. 

Due to its high ghostly activity, paranormal tours are held at the hotel, would you dare to go?

The dark story of Haunted Byberry Mental Hospital

If there is an asylum or hospital that could have been an inspiration for horror movies, surely Byberry Mental Hospital could be that place.

This is a huge hospital located in Philadelphia, which during its story saw thousands of patients with mental problems enter. And it became famous for the horrible treatments that the patients said they suffered, and if it were not because a worker took numerous photographs of the dark events, it would surely have lasted more years open.

The construction was so big, it took almost half a century for the more than 50 buildings that made up the hospital to be completed. And within them were mixed dormitories, nurseries, kitchens, laundries, a chapel and a mortuary, apart from the administration offices. It was such a large place that within its walls they managed to house a little more than 7,000 patients, at the time with the largest population of the place.

However, it´s curious that in the beginning the place was not a hospital, but a work farm for the mentally ill, it was until after it became an asylum, finally in 1907 it was consolidated as the Byberry Mental Hospital that brought so much horror to the world.

There were so many people who were there, that the conditions for the patients became poor and terrible, just like the treatment of the workers. There are photographs of patients tied with straps on their beds.

It was so much the carelessness, that the workers left the entire areas without any care, leaving the patients of those buildings practically abandoned.

In the 90’s the closing of its operations was declared, when the truth was discovered.

The scary thing is that the neighbors closest to the place (despite being miles away) gathered thousands of signatures so that the building was collapsed, according to them by the strange presence that the dark and abandoned place gave off.
