The Story Of The Shadow Doll At The Warren’s Occult Museum

Learn about the story of one of the most frightening items that is found at the Warren’s Occult Museum, the Shadow Doll

Unlike other dolls whose appearance is innocent and beautiful, the Shadow doll has a gloomy and unpleasant look, as the purpose of its existence, since it was created during a ritual for diabolical purposes. If this doll appears in your dreams, it is more likely to be a nightmare .

Besides pure evildoing, Shadow doll is made up of human bones and the teeth and nails are from animals.

This cursed doll scatters its ill in an unusual but no less terrifying way. The creators didn’t make her as a gift but to take her photographs and send them to the people they wanted to harm. Anyone who could see  Shadow doll’s picture, a curse would fall on them.

At first, when people used to receive the photo, they would laugh it off thinking it was a joke, but once it was night, they wished to never have slept on.

The doll would appear into the victim’s dreams. The nightmare would be so terrifying that the person’s heart would stop forever…

It is not known how Shadow doll came into their hands, but a seller of ancient things sold the doll to some collectors who were affected from the first day they walked through the door of their house with her.

That day, the couple had nightmares where the doll appeared and once they woke up, they were full of scratches. The second night the same thing happened again, but this time, there weren’t just scratches, but some marks like claws. After that, they decided to call the Warrens to take over the doll.

The magic in the doll is so powerful that if she is destroyed, the spirits that were summoned during her creation will follow after those who did it, bringing misfortune and fear.

The Fox Sisters and the Rise of Spiritualism

In 1847, Canadian sisters Margaret and Katy Fox together with their family, moved to a new home in Hydesville, New York. The former owner of the property was honest to them and mentioned that the reason he was selling it because there were constantly creepy noises in the house. The family decided to buy the house anyway.

In fact, it was on March 31st, 1848 when paranormal events that would started to change the lives of these girls. At first, there were weird noises, knocks and inexplicable footsteps.

As time went by, the girls became used to these happenings and tried to carry out some sort of communication with the spirits. The sisters established a morse code type. One knock would mean a yes and two would mean no. As for other words, they specified clear rules.

The spirit that contacted them named Charles Ryan, claimed to have lived in that same house, where his life was taken and his body was buried right there. The Fox family looked for him, but couldn’t find his remains.

Shortly afterwards, the Fox family was forced to leave the house because the pastor, methodists and coreligionists in the area accused the sisters of being possessed by the devil. They moved to Rochester, New York with their older sister, who joined them as their representative soon after.

Charles followed them to Rochester. He was always the middleman between other spirits and the sisters. By this point, they were very popular and constantly held sessions with people who wanted to talk to their loved ones from the beyond. The meetings became more intense as everyone began to hold hands, making the table to shake and levitate.

In 1888, Margaret confessed that it was all a sham. However,  it is said that she was actually forced to give this false statement by influential religious men. In 1904 shortly after the Fox sisters had passed away, the remains of Charles, the always faithful spirit to the sisters, were found in the house of Hydesville where they had lived. This event might demonstrate that Margaret and Katy, never actually lied.

7 Gates Of Hell Around The World

Since the beginning of humanity, there have always been differences about the mythology that exist in each culture around the world. Most of them have their own gods as well as their own equivalent of hell, so it’s interesting to find that there are some places which were seen as ways to enter to hell and these are some of the most famous.

St Patrick’s Purgatory

It is located in Ireland and according to old tales, Christ showed himself to St. Patrick and guided him to the entrance of the cave. Christ told him that there was a moat at the place, which was a gate to Purgatory and while St. Patrick was there, he got visions of the anguish from the underworld. Perhaps part of its mystery has endured, thanks to the cave being closed in 1632.

Masaya Volcano

Located at Nicaragua, it was known as ‘the mountain that burns’ by locals and was used as a space for rituals. However, the caldera was renamed as the ‘Mouth of Hell’ by the Spanish when they arrived in the 16th century. The name was given because inside, there was a witch of whom they took advice of, and also, because the chronicler who traveled with the Spanish assumed that this witch was actually the Devil. Such was the commotion among the Europeans that a monk placed a cross at the entrance to exorcise the demon.

Acheron

This is not a cave but a river that’s been part of Greek mythology for being considered the one in which Charon used to lead the dead to the underworld. It’s supposed to be one of the five rivers of hell and it is part of Dante’s Divine Comedy. He considered it as the border before entering to hell.

Hekla

It’s a stratovolcano of Iceland that in the 12th century became famous as a gate to hell after being known as Judas’ prison and it has erupted constantly since then. Nowadays, it’s considered as a place where witches meet with the Devil.

Lacus Curtius

It was a pit in the ground that was located in the middle of the Roman Forum in Italy and it’s been the inspiration for many stories and legends. The most famous one recalls the moment the crack opened at the Forum, leaving a huge infernal abyss that nobody could shut. According to an oracle, the only way to close it was, if the citizens would throw away their more valuable possessions. A young man even threw himself into.

Houska Castle

In Czech Republic, there’s a castle that has been part of many legends. The most known is about an infinite crack that existed before the castle was built and in which weird appearances could be seen. Soon, passing near the place at night was avoided since it was said that during that time, some half-man, half-beast creatures used to come out of the crack, giving it the terrible reputation of being a gate to hell.

Hierapolis

It is located in an area known as Plutonium in Turkey, where an ancient crack can be found which used to be seen as a gate to hell. It had a huge impact in history that decades later, it would be considered as a World Heritage Site.

The Mystery Of The Pollock Twins, A Case Of Reincarnation

Read about the story of the Pollock Twins, an odd case of reincarnation

It is known that the circle of life is to be born, to live and to die. But what comes next? There are many beliefs that try to explain the mysteries of the afterlife. And the case of the Pollock twins makes us think that what comes next after death is to be born again which it’s what we know as reincarnation.

The Pollock Twins

This story is set in the mid-20th century in Hexham, England. It was a Sunday morning, the happy marriage of John and Florence Pollock were on their way to mass with their daughters Johana and Jaqueline, aged 11 and 6 respectively.

They were a little late, so the little Pollock sisters decided to hurry up together with their friend to save up a seat in the church. Unfortunately none of them would arrive to their destiny. When they were crossing the street, a car hit them, ending their lives.

The parents of the Pollock sisters were in complete sorrow. However, in October 1958, a few months later, Florence became pregnant and the couple became parents of two adorable twins whom they named Guillan and Jennifer.

When the Pollock twins were 3 months old, the family moved and began a new life in Whitley-Bay. As the girls grew older, the parents noticed a strange behavior on them. Guillan took the role of an older sister and Jennifer as the younger. Also one of the twins had a birth mark which was similar to one Johana had and the other twin had also a birth mark which was similar to Jaqueline’s. But this was just the start of many coincidences…

When the twins were 4 years old, the parents decided that it was time to go back to Hexham. At the moment they arrived to town, the girls knew exactly where they were. When passing through the school where the deceased Pollock sisters studied, the twins mentioned that they used to attend classes there.

Not only did they remember that, but recognized places that the sisters usually visited and even knew the names of some neighbors. When they found the toy chest of the sisters, the twins knew the name of each toy. Guillan took the toys that belonged to Johana and Jennifer took Jaqueline’s.

Guillan and Jennifer even started to play a horrible game about falling to the ground to recreate the scene of the accident where the sisters lost their lives.

Every time they went out, if there were cars passing near them, they would get upset and hugged each other to console themselves, as if they could still recall the day of their death.

However, memories would start to fade. By the age of 5, the girls started to live a normal life, leaving behind the memories of their past lives as Johana and Jaqueline. According to experts, children who have experienced some type of reincarnation, starts to forget about their past lives by this age.

Real Interview With A Demon While A Girl Was Possessed

In the 1970s, England was shocked to learn of the frightful events that took place in Enfield, a small city outside London.  It became the center of attention in media when a family claimed they were being chased by a ghost.

But it was more than a ghost, even worse… This thing was taking over Janet Hodgson, an 11 year old girl who had recently played a Ouija board.

On August 30th, 1977, the fear started to take over Peggy Hodgson, a single mother who lived alone with her four children when Janet, the middle daughter, complained that her bed was shaking at night.

From that moment, the family realized that what was happening was nothing but paranormal activity.

Forty years later, in an interview for the movie The Conjuring 2, Janet said, “We were good children. We had no idea about the story of the house before the events. I was used and stalked. There was levitation,  voices and incidents that tormented my life”.

She also stated, “The emotions, the thoughts. I think if I had to go through that again, I wouldn’t make it”. Just like in the movie, the real Ed and Lorraine Warren came from the United States to help the Hodgson family.

The Warren came to the conclusion that the Hodgson children were vulnerable to demonic possession, especially Janet, who was possessed by 6 demons.

Here’s the video of the interview with Janet Hodgson when the demon manifested through her while she was talking.

 

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…

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?

It´s a lot of paranormal activity on these railway tracks, which has become a tourist destination for those who are looking for a bit of horror, apart from the strange phenomena mentioned above, there are also witnesses who say they have heard voices and seen the children, who, after their death, stayed on the tracks to avoid repeating the fate they suffered.
