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… 

However, that does not stop us from enjoying a good series or movie with this theme such as The Walking Dead! and if you are a fan of the nerve-wracking series, then you have to know this attraction!

The Thorpe Park Resort in Surrey has launched “The Walking Dead: The Ride”, the first roller coaster on the planet to be themed around the series splashed with red, horror and suspense.

The commitment to the Walking Dead brand is truly remarkable, Since the night of the preview, the park has been filled with zombies, running through the queues and stalking the customers, immersing the people into the world of The Walking Dead.

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? 

The Spooky Legend behind Hello Kitty

Meet the legend of Hello Kitty, which tells of the dark origin of this childish cartoon.

Hello Kitty, a sweet kitten that just by seeing her makes you feel tenderness, but despite being a nice character to look at, the reality is that the origin of her story hides a dark secret that, beyond being tender, is chilling…

Hello Kitty was created in 1974 by a Chinese woman for the Japanese company Sanrio. It became a success from the beginning, and despite the years, today it is still a universal icon among young people and children, as we can still appreciate its innocent image everywhere.

Legend has it that in the 1970s, a woman had a 14-year-old daughter diagnosed with oral cancer. Unfortunately, after several failed attempts by doctors to help her, they could not do more about it and advised the mother to be with her in her last days, as the girl’s life would soon be over.

The woman was devastated by the news but she was not yet willing to let go, so she took refuge in faith. She visited many churches, prayed and prayed for a miracle and made many promises. However her daughter’s condition was getting worse every day, it seemed that nothing could save the little girl. So the distressed mother decided to take her last resort and made a pact with the devil.

For saving her daughter’s life, the devil only asked one thing in return. He asked the mother to create a character that would be famous all over the world. Satan wanted to attract as many people as possible and gain new followers who would do everything for him.  So if someone were a fan of this cartoon or would buy a Hello Kitty doll it would be an unwitting offer to say “yes” to the evil one.

The devil improved the girl’s health, while at the same time she fulfilled her debt by creating a sweet childlike figure that would attract many followers.

This cartoon is based on a kitten, which curiously some people associate with “beings of darkness”. In turn, the kitten was designed without a mouth as a symbol of the daughter’s cancer.

Her name was in honor of the devil, as the word “Hello” is a typical greeting, but “Kitty” supposedly back at the time, in Chinese, was equal to “devil” so “Hello Kitty” really meant “Hello Devil”.

It is said that several members of satanic cults use the image of Hello Kitty in their black masses to venerate the devil, some of them even tattoo “Kitty” in homage to the king of darkness.

These are some of the darkest and forbidden magical books ever to exist

During history, different cultures and nations have prohibited by law the reading of some books for their population, sometimes because of their political contents and others because of ideologies or beliefs that they did not want to be popularized in those places, but apart from these books, there have been others that have not been prohibited by law, but as a precaution of life itself, because of their dangerous magical properties.

Forbidden Magical Books

The Book of Thot

Made of 78 gold plates, written with signs and hieroglyphics, it is said to be a book written by the God Thoth, in charge of measuring time and ruling the heavens. And supposedly (since it is not known where the book could be from) it contained the wisdom of the Universe. What gave the bearer, if he was chosen to have it, a great compendium of power, among which was knowing the future, knowing how to revive the dead, communicate with animals and so on.

If the book was written and the stories are true, it would have approximately 10,000 to 20,000 years old and that is why the Egyptian priests who were in charge of it, kept it very well, to prevent anyone could have access to this great and dangerous power.

Voynich Manuscript

A manuscript rediscovered in 1912, which is considered forbidden and mystical, not so much because of its content, but because it is not within our reach.

It is written in a language or dialect that does not exist and that nobody has been able to decipher, apart from showing many illustrations among its pages, among which are plants that do not exist and have not existed, astrological symbols, creatures in the shape of jellyfish and women, apart from architectural illustrations, of styles that did not exist until centuries after its writing. Although it is not known who the author was, through studies its antiquity was discovered, verifying that it is from the medieval period.

Dzyan’s book

The legend of this book is very mystical, for according to history only those with psychic affinity can discover it, for it has no words or letters but symbols, and it was given to the people of Atlantis by people from another world and is therefore presumed to be the oldest book in the world.

Whether it is true or not, its oldest existing copy dates from the year 595 in China, and it collects supposedly Buddhist knowledge.

The Devil’s Bible

A manuscript known as The Codex Gigas, written in the 13th century, in the Czech lands. It became known for its excessive size and contained much knowledge that in ancient times could be considered heresy.

Among the most basic of the book were the Old and New Testaments; two works by Flavius Josephus; Etymologies by Isidore of Seville; the book of medical teaching Ars Medicinae, which could have been confused with witchcraft. 

As well as an alarming and enormous illustration of the Devil in great detail, which is an indication of his legend, since it is said to have been written by a monk who, after having committed a sin, wanted to be redeemed by writing the greatest book in the world in one night, but after a few hours and realizing that he could not carry it out, he made a pact with the Devil in exchange for his soul and the illustration.

The Necronomicon

Although some copies have been released of this supposed book, all have turned out to be a hoax, and when first mentioned in the Universe created by H. P. Lovecraft, it is believed to be nothing more than an invention, however, it is worth mentioning that there are cults around the world that worship it as if it were a bible.

If it were true, it would be a great misfortune for someone to have it in their possession, as it deals with cosmic mysteries beyond our understanding, and serves to summon forces stronger than we can think and which would end up driving those who read it to total madness.

Among the things that it supposedly could give, is the power to revive the dead, to travel to other times and other dimensions and formulas to call the entities already mentioned.

Have you ever heard of any of these books before? Or do you know a different forbidden book?

You won’t believe these registered cases of real witches

Meet three of the most terrifying cases of real witches, which unfortunately ended in a horrible way for those women who practice magic

Witches are part of the popular idiosyncrasy, these beings have great fame for making use of magic and invocations to do acts of good or evil, however, are almost always referred to evil. Horror films like “The Blair Witch” and “The Witch” have been responsible for fomenting a deep fear of real witches.

Since ancient times there have been cases of impressive black magic, although many times many people have been accused in a false way because for thinking differently it was quite regular that someone was considered a witch (or), in fact, the real witches were so wise, it was difficult to discover them.

There are hundreds of cases of real witches who had a terrible end, these stories refer to the great hunt that took place in the Holy Inquisition and particularly to the Salem witches.

Here the 3 stories of real witches

1.- The witch Ursula Southeil

This woman was a prophetess in the sixteenth century, Nostradamus style, this seer was able to predict the Black Death, the burning of London and the death of the Queen of Scotland, for her comments is that people began to call her witch, people said she was the daughter of the devil. She was considered the most respected clairvoyant in England, therefore, she became a legend, this witch also called “Mother Shipton” until she lost her life in the year 1561.

2.- The Witch Agnes Sampson

Agnes was a midwife in Scotland, in the year 1590, the story behind Agnes is the typical witch hunt when King Jacobo VI arrived from a trip with his wife Anne, they discovered a heavy rain which lasted a few days, his wife convinced him that the sky had been bewitched and then the witch hunt began, targeting Agnes and many other women who used herbs to heal the people of the village.

Agnes was accused by another woman; when she was captured, the witch Sampson was forced in a horrible way to confess her pact with the devil, Agnes denied all the time having participated in a witches’ coven to change the climate, however the pain broke her spirit, and she confessed, so that later they would take her existence away.

3.- The witch Malin Matsdotter

The case of this woman is much popular because her daughters accused her of witchcraft. Malin was Swedish, a widow, the great witch hunt in this country was between the years of 1668-1676, in all this period it was quite common to take women to the bonfire, women who people thought to be real witches, Malin’s daughters accused her of having taken them to a witches’ coven in the dark, for which she was condemned to the bonfire.

Malin is very famous since she was the only witch remembered from that country. When she was at the bonfire she didn’t say any word, she just stared at her daughters, later one of her daughters was accused just like her mother, and her life was taken from her.

These are some horror classics that resurrect in 2020 with some spine-chilling remakes!

Movie remakes are often controversial for many reasons. There are people that prefer it when original movies since they have a certain authenticity that remains unique even after years have passed and there’s also those who find pleasure in watching a classic movie, with a more modern touch.

So if you ever feel like watching some good old movies, with more advanced effects and overall vibe then these are the movies you need to watch!

Wrong Turn

The popular horror film series was a tremendous hit during the early 2000s, the plot, the suspense, and horror that these six movies made all of us feel was exceptional. For the remake of this popular horror franchise, McElroy and Mike P. Nelson will be collaborating and it is expected on them to build upon the backwoods cannibal’s storyline.

Despite the fact that fans often want the comebacks to stay as true as possible to original versions, for the Wrong Turn, it might have a somewhat more political approach, having a group of friends going on an expedition and finding themselves in some unknown place with an exclusive society, with a different rule of law. As long as the McElroy and Mike P. Nelson spice things up with some classic horror, it will be fine!

The Grudge

The demonic antagonistic characters of the movies became an icon in the horror genre, because without a doubt, from the way it moves to its dreadful appearance, this monster is capable of giving us a huge scare! Nicolas Pesce is the director and writer behind this year’s remake, which was released in cinemas a couple of weeks ago.

The Grudge now tells the story of a detective who plans to investigate a shocking and mysterious case, which eventually leads him to experience very disturbing situations with a vengeful ghost. Even some may say that The Grudge failed with its “come-back” many believe that this remake was in fact better than its 2004 movie. What do you think about it?

Arachnophobia

Arachnophobia is in fact one of the most common phobias worldwide and with good reason as these little creatures have come to surprise us once or twice when they appear out of nowhere, but the classic nine-year-old took this phobia to the next level with his disturbing film.

This time, Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment and James Wan’s Atomic Monster are teaming up on a remake of 1990’s horror-comedy “Arachnophobia” so expectations are quite high on this one. 

Candyman

The original Candyman is a chilling masterpiece of horror. By 2020, the supernatural slasher will be directed by Nia Dacosta and written by Jordan Peele, together they plan to give this remake a political, vicious, cunning approach. 

“A “spiritual sequel” to the 1992 horror film ‘Candyman’ that returns to the now-gentrified Chicago neighborhood where the legend began.”
