5 Psychological Thrillers Ranked As The Best Of The Genre

The adrenaline rush of psychological thrillers can be addictive. If you are already a fan of the genre, you may have seen some of these films and if not, here is a list with the best ranked movies of this genre.

Psychosis (1960)

A classic of classics. Years can pass by but Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece continues to give new generations goosebumps in the same way it did the first time the world heard Janet Leigh cry in the shower. If you want to be scared for real, let Mr. Hitchcock do it himself with a little help from Anthony Perkins.

Gone Girl (2014)

Expectations for this film were really high before its premiere and it was even better than expected. No matter how many times you watch it, you get carried away by this story with one of the most unexpected twists in the history of cinema.

Shutter Island (2010)

In this thriller Martin Scorsese made it very clear that he is not only good at gangster movies. The director joined forces with Leonardo DiCaprio to tell a story of crime, madness and love. With an all-star cast also composed of Mark Ruffalo and Michelle Williams, the film focuses on the investigation of the mysterious escape of a woman who was admitted to a fortress-like asylum located on a remote, windswept island. It’s one of those movies where a lot of what you see isn’t really what you think it is.

5 Of The Most Mysterious And Unsettling Triangles In The World

From the Bermuda Triangle to the Bennington Triangle, these are five areas on Earth where magnetic activity, frequent seismic movements or strange phenomena occur, giving rise to all kinds of speculation and mystery.

Triangle of Silence

Spain also has a famous triangle with characteristics very similar to the Bermuda Triangle. The vertices go from the island of Es Vedrà, in the southwest of Ibiza, to the Peñón de Ifach in Calpe and a point on the southwest coast of the island of Mallorca. In this area there have been phenomena that cannot be explained as the ships get lost due to failures in the navigation devices.

There are many testimonies of UFO sightings as well as mysterious and strange metallic sounds. An explanation could be the supposed magnetic radiation of this rock that has been compared to the stones of Stonehenge, the pyramids of Egypt and the statues of Easter Island.

One of the most famous events occurred in 1979 when an airplane traveling from Mallorca to Tenerife was chased allegedly for eight minutes by a UFO while flying over Es Vedrà. The pilot decided to divert his route for safety reasons and make an emergency landing at Valencia airport. This event came as the first case of forced landing due to a UFO in Spanish aeronautics.

Devil’s Sea

It is also known as the Dragon Triangle. In the Pacific Ocean, near the coast of Japan, is another of the most mysterious places on Earth, an area where aircrafts and ships have disappeared under strange circumstances. The area of great seismic activity, goes from the west of Japan, to the north of Tokyo and a part of the Pacific forming a perfect triangle.

For years the area have been described as extremely dangerous because there have been multiple disappearances and very strange events. Perhaps the high magnetic activity in the area is one of the explanations, but the truth is that there are numerous testimonies and documented facts about the disappearance of ships and crew.

In fact, the Japanese government funded a research vessel in 1955 to study the Devil’s Sea. But the ship also disappeared with all the scientists on the expedition, prompting the Japanese government to label the area “officially” dangerous.

The Bridgewater Triangle

The next triangle is located around the cities of Abington, Rehoboth and Freetown. In the center is the Hockomock Swamp, which in the language of the Wampanoag Indians means “the place where spirits live”.

There are many testimonies that collect paranormal events in the so-called Bridgewater Triangle, ranging from UFO sightings, appearances of fireballs, discoveries of snakes and giant birds, mutilation of cattle and also got international attention for the people who lost their lives by satanic rituals that were performed by Carl Drew.

The Bennington Triangle

Located in southwestern Vermont, this triangle was called Bennington by Joseph A. Citro who compiled in 1992 the disappearances of at least four people between 1945 and 1950 in an area that included Glastenbury mountain and the cities like Bennington, Woodford, Shaftsbury and Somerset.

The first disappearance occurred on November 12, 1945, when 74-year-old Middie Rivers disappeared while hunting. Rivers was an experienced hunter and fisherman and was familiar with the local area. A year later, 18-year-old Paula Jean Welden disappeared without a trace while walking through a busy area.

Three years later, in 1949 James Tedford, a veteran, was the third person to go missing. According to witnesses, Tedford got on the bus and was still on the bus at the last stop before it reached Bennington. Sometime between the last stop and Bennington, Tedford disappeared. His belongings were still in the luggage rack.

The fourth person to disappear was Paul Jephson, an eight-year-old boy. On October 12, 1950, Jephson had accompanied his mother in a truck and while she was feeding the pigs, the little one disappeared.  It remains a mystery what happened to him.

The Bermuda Triangle

It’s not secret that one of the most famous triangles is the Bermuda triangle, where a number of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. It’s also known as the Devil’s Triangle.

For paranormal enthusiasts, they believe that strange phenomena occur in the Bermuda Triangle that science cannot explain.

However, science ensures that the disappearance of ships, aircrafts and small boats can be explained by the strong currents of the Gulf that lead to unstable weather with waves that can measure 30 meters, all combined with dense maritime traffic.

The science fiction book ‘The Bermuda Triangle’ (1974), by the writer Charles Echseider, turned the alleged disappearances into true myths. Nowadays, several hundred civilian and military ships pass through the region without mishap every day.

Have you heard about these triangles before?

 

People Have Experienced Misfortunes After Stealing These Artifacts

There are some objects that are believed to be haunted or cursed but the worse part is that some of those, have been stolen before and those whom took them away, experienced bad luck and misfortune and really regretting their actions after that.

The Mirror At Myrtles Plantation

It is well known that the Myrtles Plantation in Francisville, Louisiana as one of the world’s most haunted homes. It is said that a slave named Chloe poisoned Sara Woodruff, the lady of the plantation, and her two daughters by feeding them an oleander-laced cake.

It is believed that Woodruff and the two girls are trapped inside the mirror as visitors to the plantation claimed to have seen handprints on it and figures dressed in old-fashioned clothing creeping around inside of it.

The Women from Lemb Statue

It’s a mysterious object carved out of limestone somewhere around the year 3500 BC and discovered in Lemb, Cyrus in 1878. No one knows what the object is exactly but it is believed to have been owned by four different families, all of whom passed away within a few years after receiving it.

The last two surviving sons of the last family decided that it would be best for them to donate the statue to the Royal Scottish Museum in Edinburgh, Scotland but the museum curator who was taking care of the sculpture passed away within a year after that.

The Ballista Balls

In 1989, these Ballista Balls were found alongside what appeared to be the remains of a Ballista, which was a weapon similar to the crossbow but at a larger scale, which fired arrows or stones. Years later, in 1995, someone stole an ammunition of the Roman war artifact but nobody noticed.

In 2015, several rock balls that matched the ones found in the diggings of 1989 appeared in the courtyard of a museum in Israel with a note, which was supposedly written by the thief. In the note, he stated that after stealing the Ballista Balls, he had experienced profound bad luck and he believed them to be cursed, as he had a prosperous business that ended suddenly, his family abandoned him and he almost ended in bankruptcy.

Pompeiian Artifacts

Pompeii was a city in Ancient Rome that was destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.

According to curators, custodians, and other employees in the area, there are constant reports of looting every year and the reason why many believe there’s a cursed is because the Pompeii Archaeological Superintendence receives about 100 packages a year of pieces allegedly stolen from the city. Most are accompanied by explanatory letters about the bad luck suffered by their owners.

The Ring Of Senicianus

It was discovered in 1785 by a farmer plowing the land, a few miles away from Silchester in Hampshire. It is made of 12g gold and bears the Latin inscription “Seniciane vivas in Deum.”

Time later, the ring passed to the hands of British archaeologists. By 1929, a scholar who was making an inventory of the artifacts under his charge, found some curious and sinister details relating the ring with the findings of an archaeological excavation that was carried out in the early 1900s, just 80 miles away from where the ring was found, at a place called Lydney.

At the site, archaeologists found a tablet in which a Roman named Silvianus told Nodens, the Celtic God of healing and hunting, that his ring had been stolen. He knew who had been and asked the god to do justice. The inscribed curse stated: “May he who bears the name of Senicianus not have health until he brings the ring back to the temple of Nodens.”

This Polish Blood-and-Guts Slasher Flick For Gore Fans Is Now On Netflix

Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight is a new film directed by Bartosz M. Kowalski, written by Kowalski along with Jan Kwieciński and Mirella Zaradkiewicz.

The plot of the film is that every year teens in Poland are sent to a technology free camp, called Adrenaline which is in the middle of a forest. Basically their addiction is technology so the sole purpose for them to go to the camp is to stay away from their phones.

After handing in their cell phones and computers, they are divided into groups. One of these will be made up of Zosia (Julia Wieniawa-Narkiewicz), Julek (Michael Lupa), Aniela (Wiktoria Gąsiewska), Bartek (Stanislaw Cywka) and Daniel (Sebastian Dela).

Five very different teenagers – from the reserved Zosia to the know-it-all Daniel, passing through the uninhibited Aniela – who will have Iza (Gabriela Muskala) as their guide for their adventure, who will help them forget the internet and social networks while camping. Between other characters there’s a priest (Piotr Cyrwus) and an old man (Miroslaw Zbrojewicz).

The film makes it clear since the beginning that there is a terrible threat inside a house deep into the forest. Kowalski’s skillful use of natural settings, gives the forest in which the events take place a slightly sinister air. Also, the soundtrack of Radzimir Debski takes an important part of the film.

So, Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight  uses the forest to ignite chaos, giving the characters space to be separated and experience the incoming violence at different times. The movie enjoys the usual tropes, and most of the events are predictable.

The film is obviously inspired in American films, such as the classic Friday the 13th and its Jason Voorhees. The movie only seeks to entertain the older public and any fan of the horror genre.

Don’t get us wrong, the movie is fine, but there’s not much to get excited about. It’s a horror movie as it is. What we have seen before in any old horror movie and if you’re a gore fan, maybe you’ll like this one, as it is present along the movie in generous doses.

The film remains somewhere between the prudent deaths that characterized the mid-90s slasher that emerged after ‘Scream’ with the greatest savagery of the 80s. The film is a peculiar bet but one that ends up being effective.

Horror is sometimes just that, horror. So if you want to see a slasher that is going to give you what you expect from a production like this but with small distinctions, ‘Nobody sleeps in the woods tonight’ is your movie. It was released on Netflix on October 28, 2020.

Priest Who Blesses Annabelle: “You Can Feel The Devil Next To The Doll”

Annabelle, the doll that inspired horror movies, is truly cursed according to Canadian priest Platon Angelakis, who blesses her twice a month.

Angelakis was ordained an Orthodox Catholic priest with the Oblates of St. Teresa, Wisconsin, in 1999. He is also an active member of the American Exorcist Association since 2013.

He was interviewed via Zoom by La Teja, a Costa Rican newspaper, along with Keeyah Lynn (46), his assistant. She used to be a witch, but is now a sister ordained by the Order of Saint Michael along with the Catholic Church in Canada.

As you may know, Annabelle was a gift from a mother to her 18-year-old daughter, Donna, who left home to study nursing at university in 1970.

Donna shared a room with another student named Angie and they both began to experience strange things.

Annabelle would appear in different positions every single day. Donna assured that there were occasions when the doll would wake up in other rooms of the university headquarters.

Later, at Donna and Angie’s room would appear notes with weird messages as asking for help.

On one occasion Donna found a small trace of apparent blood under , the doll so she looked for a medium who told them that the spirit of a seven year old girl named Annabelle Higgins had owned the doll. It is assumed that the girl had passed away in that place, hence, she possesed the doll.

A friend of Donna’s named Lou used to visit her frequently and had asked her to throw the doll on many occasions. One time, he fell asleep in the room where the doll was and suddenly he woke up unable to move. Lou claimed that Annabelle tried to strangle him and squeezed his neck so hard he passed out and woke up until the next day.

He thought, he had a bad dream so he kept going to Donna’s place but on another occasion he heard sounds in a room where there was no one but the doll. He walked over to her and suddenly he felt someone behind him and without any explanation, seven scratches appeared on his chest, which healed completely the next day.

Donna called a number of people from her church to help her and that’s how they contacted the Warrens, who were already famous for paranormal issues.

The Warrens investigated the case and concluded that the possession was actually the work of a demon.

The couple took a priest to clean the place and the doll was taken away to avoid someone to get hurt.

From that moment the paranormal events in Donna’s life ended.

According to the newspaper, when Angelakis was asked if the story of the doll was true he answered “Yes, it is true and yes, it is cursed”.

He was also questioned about how he felt whenever he was around the doll, “Strange, very strange. Uncomfortable, creepy. The atmosphere is heavy, one realizes that there are very negative vibrations there. You can feel the devil next to the doll,” he replied.

The priest also proceed to explain why Annabelle, if being possessed, is unable to get out of the small wooden and glass urn she is captived.

“Because the box is blessed, it has water, oil and blessed crucifixes around it. Nobody touches that box without having their hands soaked in holy water.” he said, “It is not a box that moves a lot, in fact, hardly anyone touches it and it is always in the museum. Annabelle is not an object for everyone to see, it is a diabolical object and that is why it needs to be in a blessed cage”, he added.

Meanwhile Lynn said that every time she visits Annabelle she leaves loaded with bad vibes and demons.

“So much so that a friend of mine was already affected by one and on one occasion, when I got home, my son began to vomit without stopping,” said Lynn.
