New Horror Series Inspired On H.P. Lovecraft’s Legacy Just Debuted

A few days ago, a new drama horror television series premiered on HBO. It has all the right elements to get into a gloomy atmosphere of the 50s. The series is inspired on famous horror writer H. P. Lovecraft.

The series titled “Lovecraft Country”, was developed by Misha Green (“Sons of Anarchy”). It counted with Jordan Peele (“Get Out”) and J.J Abrams (“Lost”) as the producers and it’s based on the 2016 novel of the same name by Matt Ruff.

The story is about a young black man named Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) who travels with his Uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) and childhood friend Letitia “Leti” Lewis (Jurnee Smollett) across the segregated 1950s United States in search of his missing father Montrose (Michael K. Williams), who has gone missing. They go looking for him while also learning of dark secrets plaguing a whole town, in which famous writer Lovecraft supposedly based the location of many of his fictional tales.

It may only debuted, but the 10-episode series is already a huge success. The audience’s response was favorable. Just in Rotten Tomatoes, the series holds an approval rating of 97% based on 58 reviews and 81% in average audience score.

In addition, it became a topic of conversation on social media due to the fiction being mixed with real and important topics that we still live up until today. Audience can see through the racism combined with the fantastical creatures and monsters.

Critics have also praised the production as impressive thanks to the contrast between the monsters, the fictional terror and also the constant fear from daily life. It’s expected that the next episodes can bring into even more audience.

Like many other HBO series,Lovecraft Country” premieres one episode a week, lengthening the mystery and tension but hooking horror fans since the beginning and leaving them wanting for more.

The legacy: weird fiction

Not many may be familiar to H. P. Lovecraft’s works, but he transformed horror genre at his time and managed to mark popular culture, cinema, literature and many other things. So it is logical that a team led by Peele, Green and Abrams, ended up giving HBO a great work of success.

While Lovecraft left a legacy and was the pioneer for the “weird fiction”(which either avoids or reinterprets ghosts, vampires, werewolves, and other traditional antagonists of supernatural horror fiction), his racist, xenophobic and antisemitic views cannot be denied.

That’s why that on the series, the fantasy and horror are well-played, but there’s also a better understanding of Lovecraft’s works and even further than that.


So all the elements are already in place to enjoy “Lovecraft Country” through HBO, so we must not lose sight of this series that promises to be, as impressive to read between the lines, as visually surprising.

The Creepy Video Of ‘The Ghost Girl In The Pantry’

This scary story begins with John, a man that together with his family rented a property in California. He found out later that the house is haunted because a horrible tragedy had happened right there before. Someone took the life of an 11-year-old girl.

In 2007, everyone was freaking out when John uploaded a video on Youtube that went viral.

The video starts as a normal day where several family members are gathered together in the kitchen. Suddenly a girl can be seen looking through the glass doors of the pantry.

Since the family moved into the house, they noticed paranormal activity coming from the pantry. All the objects they had stored, used to disappeared mysteriously and appeared elsewhere. Every night, the doors of the pantry would open and stayed like that until next morning.

Thanks to the first evidence they got on video, John decided to place a camera at night to record what was happening in the pantry while they slept. The following nights, they would notice how the doors would opened by themselves. At one of the videos, the ghost of the girl can be seen peeking from inside.

Most viewers had no doubt that those YouTube videos were actually real. However there were some who believed it was all faked, so John invited a user to go to his house and personally experience the ghostly manifestations that were happening.

On that night and with camera’s proof, the two men saw two white hands touching the glass doors. When John tried to reached the hands, the girl’s face appeared for an instant and then disappeared after slowly opened the pantry’s door.

For three years, this family was terrified by the ghost. She not only manifested herself in the pantry, but also used to roam the hallways and attic. She would also pull the hair of the youngest daughter of the marriage.

Even though, some still question the veracity of the videos, none of the experts have been able to tell if they are real or manipulated.

Here one of the videos of the ghost…


The Hidden Meaning Of Silent Hill 2

Silent Hill stories always seem pretty obvious: the main character for one reason or another, ends up entering town and bumps into monsters that has to fight against to.

However, the folks and the creatures are actually representing the internal demons of each character, which makes them mad as their own minds.

The story of the sequel begins when James, the main character, receives a letter from Mary, his wife, inviting him to this special place: Silent Hill. This action should not be weird but she died three years ago from a terminal illness.

Once he arrives, he can’t see the beautiful town he used to know, instead it looks like an abandoned place with an endless fog and it’s actually inhabited by ghoulish monsters. Despite other people living there, none can see these creatures because they are a reflection from the memories, culpability and perversions of James’s mind.

Some of the disturbing creatures are listed bellow:

Lying Figure

Crooked beings with no arms, secured in a straitjacket made of their own flesh. They represent a patient writhing in agony and at the same time, James’ own misery.


Similar to mannequins. They have a woman’s torso as well as four legs (a pair is down to walk and the other two are above) and wear miniskirts. They represent James’ frustrated carnal desire. He forbidden himself to see other women while his wife was dying.


Monsters hanging from wire meshes. They represent the overwhelming anguish of James and for this reason, they cannot be at a ground level.

Head Nurse

This creature has a feminine shape and normal aspect, except for the face which is hidden behind bandages and has a chilling mouth.

They’re nurses in low-cut suits. They symbolize James’ sinful desire when he used to see nurses all the time and wishing not to see them that way.

Pyramid Head

A being with the body of a man. His head is covered by a helmet with the shape of a pyramid and carries a huge knife. Actually, this being is  James’s darkest side which is a distorted figure that looks for his wife to end her life. The creature represents his frustration and perversion as a whole

Ryan Murphy’s New Horror Series ‘Ratched’ Hits Netflix In September

Sarah Paulson has been well-known by her amazing performances on American Horror Story and now she’ll be back at it with Ratched.

This new horror series coming to Netflix this Fall. It works as a prequel for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, which was starred by Jack Nicholson in 1975.

Murphy and Romansky’s Netflix series Ratched, explores the story of Mildred Ratched in her early days as a nurse, 20 years prior to the events of the book and classic film. She arrives in California in the 1940s until she became the head nurse of the psychiatric hospital where unsettling experiments are practiced on the human mind.

Ratched appears to be how a dedicated nurse should be, someone who is gentle and takes care of everyone. She tries to show herself as a perfect person but deep down is capable of committing the most gruesome crimes.

In an interview with Vanity Fair about Ratched’s character, Murphy said,  “I feel like Nurse Ratched is sort of a shorthand for barbarism. She became almost like a catchphrase for any sort of institutional abuse of power. What was interesting was trying to create an emotional character from a reputation that’s very cold…trying to figure out every little detail about her childhood, her relationships, her sexuality. Because when people think of Ratched, they think of her as shutoff and cruel and uncaring.”

Paulson also stated, “I identified very deeply with her loneliness. I think ultimately at the end of the day, that is sort of what drives Mildred. “A pursuit of survival and of finding some sense of home. Even though the methods that she chooses to achieve that internal security are somewhat questionable, I would argue that she’s doing them with a potentially selfish need, but a survival need nevertheless. Sort of an animal need that blinds her to the inappropriateness of some her actions.”

Ratched will consist of 8 episodes and it’ll be premiering on Netflix next September 18th.

Second Season Has Been Confirmed

While the series are yet to come to the streaming plataform, a second season has already been confirmed. Back in 2017, Murphy sign with Netflix to bring a long list of upcoming shows, among the 11 projects, Ratched was granted a two-season order.

Besides Paulson, there’s a great cast composed by stars Cynthia Nixon (Gwendolyn Briggs), Judy Davis (Nurse Betsy Bucket), Sharon Stone (Lenore Osgood), Jon Jon Briones (Dr. Richard Hanover), Finn Wittrock (Edmund Tolleson), Charlie Carver (Huck), Alice Englert (Dolly), Amanda Plummer (Louise), Corey Stoll (Charles Wainwright), Sophie Okonedo (Charlotte), and Vincent D’Onofrio (Gov. George Wilburn).

“By the time you get to the end of the first season, you will not wonder how and why Mildred became the way she did. You may question her actions, you may have judgment about it—but you will understand it. It will make sense to you.” Paulson added to Vanity Fair.

The series will show us Ratched most hideous side and also most vulnerable. We can expect lots of drama, action, suspense and moments full of terror that will make more than one to not sleep at night.

Here’s the trailer for the upcoming series!

Netflix Buys This Reddit Horror Story To Turned It Into An Adaptation

Here’s the perfect example that if you have a creative idea on mind, it is worth sharing it to the world. You never know when it’s going to be your time to shine. Just like what happened to the Query brothers. From being a little creepy story to become an upcoming adaptation for one of the largest entertainment companies in the world.

Netflix has made a seven-figure deal to adapt the short horror story My Wife and I Bought a Ranch, which was first published on Reddit’s r/NoSleep forum.

Author Matt Query published the six-part story back in February, getting a lot of recognition among readers ever since. Only in the first part of the story, it earned more than 3000 upvotes.

Harrison Query, his brother, will be writing the screenplay while Scott Glassgold and his Ground Control Entertainment are producing the upcoming adaptation.

21 Laps’ Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) & Dan Cohen (Stranger Things) and Atomic Monster’s James Wan (The Conjuring) & Michael Clear (The nun) are also in talks to produce the horror project.

The story follows Harry and Sasha, a couple who just bought their dream ranch in rural Idaho but soon discover that they are not alone in the mountains.

They meet their neighbors, who tells them that there’s an evil spirit in the valley and it manifests the same way at the beginning of each season. In order to keep the spirit out of the house, some steps should be followed. The violence and the tension keep growing after every ritual performed and the duel between the spirits and Harry turn personal.

Thereby,  “My Wife and I Bought a Ranch”, is the perfect proof that creative pursuits can be successful by posting them on Internet. Some stories that were shared just for fun are now turning into adaptations as well. So, don’t ever forget how much big companies are willing to pay for your work and turning it into a movie (or series).

The Haunting of Bly Manor: Plot, Cast, Release Date, and More

The Haunting of Hill House is an American anthology supernatural horror drama web television series which premiered on Netflix in 2018. Directed by Mike Flanagan, it became a massive success and since the first season left the audience asking for more, the creator decided to give them what they wanted, which is now one of the most anticipated series of 2020, The Haunting of Bly Manor.  

All those characteristics that made its predecessor one of the greatest horror series on the streaming platform, will continue to be present in this second season but of course, with a different story and characters. Here’s what we know about the upcoming season:


The Haunting of Hill House was based in gothic horror novel by American author Shirley Jackson published in 1959. For Bly Manor though, it’ll be based on the 1898 horror novella The Turn of the Screw by Henry James. And the book is as creepy as the one used for Hill House.

The plot hasn’t been established yet but we can get an idea based on James’ horror novela. The Turn of the Screw tells the story of a governess in charge of two children in a Victorian mansion.

These kids have just experienced a traumatic situation as their former governess died under strange circumstances and who also had a turbulent relationship with another of the house workers. The new teacher, trying to understand what actually happened in the mansion, begins to hear voices and to see her predecessor and the servant.

While The Turn of the Screw will be used as the ‘backbone’ of this season, Flanagan confirmed they will also play with other stories by James such as The Jolly Corner and The Romance of Certain Old Clothes.


While The Haunting of Bly Manor will have new characters, it will also feature the return of several actors from the previous season. However, the narratives of the two series will not be connected. Among them, Victoria Pedretti (Nell Crain) as the governess, Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Luke Crain), Kate Siegel (Theo Crain), Henry Thomas (Hugh Crain) y Catherine Parker (Poppy Hill).

For the new faces, Rahul Kohli has joined Bly Manor together with T’Nia Miller, Amelia Eve, and young actors Amelie Smith and Benjamin Ainsworth have also been added to the cast.

Release date

Bly Manor is expected to be scarier than Hill House. Flanagan told Birth.Movies.Death, “We’re looking at all the ghost stories of Henry James as the jumping-off point for the season, so it very much is a whole new deal. It’s a cool way to expand on some of the things I loved about Season 1, but within the framework of a new story, without having to be restrained by the decisions we made last time. For Henry James fans, it’s going to be pretty wild, and for people who aren’t familiar with his work, it’s going to be unbelievably scary. I already think it’s much scarier than Season 1, so I’m very excited about it.

The production started back on September 30th, 2019 and it is expected to hit Netflix later this year.

Flanagan confirmed that the series continues with its scheduled premiere in 2020. The filming for Bly Manor was able to be completed before all productions were pushed back due to the pandemic and that his post-production team has been working to get the series ready virtually. Many believe that it will premiere in October just like they did with the first season in 2018.

“I don’t expect to be delayed one bit. We didn’t really miss a step. We’ve been jamming through [post-production]. It’s been going great. It’s definitely later this year. It’s not going to get kicked off until 2021 or anything.” Said Flanagan in a podcast interview.

While we still don’t have a release date yet, we are completely sure that The Haunting of Bly Manor will be every bit as frightening and smart as The Haunting of Hill House was.

Demon Names And How To Summon Them

In summoning rituals, a huge amount of psychic energy is generated, which is essential for a demon to hear the call.

How to summon a demon step by step:

Step 1

An effigy is needed to serve as a portal, an upside down pentagram or a sigil of Baphomet as well as a goblet. The last one may be from metal but a golden color should be avoided because it’s not suitable for a dark ritual.

You will need some black candles and among those, a white one which can serve as a mockery of heavenly light, a bell and finally, an altar that must be created to place all these elements. The elixir of the goblet can be any drink, it’s not necessary to use blood.

Step 2

Every detail is important for this type of ritual like some instrumental music, black clothing, incense and even paintings as well. An image of Baphomet is also essential since there are a large number of ideograms and effigies that hold a lot of power.

Step 3

You should have ready a petition list which will be used later during the ceremony. To start the ritual light the candles and say the following:

“In nomine dei nostri Satanas Luceferi Excelsi. In the name of Satan, the Ruler of the earth, the King of the world, I command the forces of Darkness to bestow their Infernal power upon me!

Open wide the gates of Hell and come forth from the abyss to greet me as your brother, sister, and friend! Grant me the indulgences of which I speak! I have taken thy name as a part of myself! I live as the beasts of the field, rejoicing in the fleshly life! I favor the just and curse the rotten!

By all the Gods of the Pit, I command that these things of which I speak shall come to pass! Come forth and answer to your names by manifesting my desires! Oh, hear the names…”

By this moment, some demon names that exist in the Satanic Bible can be mentioned in order to summon them. With the help of the bell, you have to make circles counter-clockwise, drink from the goblet and say other prayers together with your requests. Concentration is key and once you’re done asking for what you want, burn the paper after saying: “Shemhamforash” and “Hail Satan”.

Randonautica: The Most Dangerous App. Don’t Try It!

Nowadays, using apps have become an essential part of our lives, as they provide us tools to help us to communicate, shop, entertain and such. Of course, one must be careful of what to download because some apps may bring some disturbing outcomes.

This is the case of the “Randonautica” app. It shows you a random location (depending on the area where you are) so that you can explore it. Although it may sound fun, if you are not prepared enough, it’s be better not to do so. The purpose of the app is to meet places but it may take you to strange situations, to find disturbing objects or even encounter some type of paranormal manifestation.

When you open Randonautica, it will ask for permission to access to your current location. Once you authorized it, you must read the instructions for security matters.

Even the app itself warns about the riskiness of using Randonautica. It also advises to explore preferably in daylight and accompanied by someone. The app asks to not enter private properties and in the case to find yourself in an uncomfortable or dangerous situation, to leave the place immediately.

Randonautica uses a quantum random number generator to give you a set of coordinates for your local area. The idea is to encourage as mention before to explore around with a desired intention in mind of what you’d like to come across.

Before start, it provides three different options to give you locations. This will depend on what you have in mind, so it’s necessary that before choosing one, you must understand their functions.

The first one is called attractor, this means a place has the highest concentration of quantum dots and it may lead you to face weird situations.

The second is void. This is the opposite of an attractor. It means an area contains low quantum concentration. You could have some negative, awkward or disturbing experience.

The last one is anomaly. This is the stronger  pick of those two different options, so be careful and don’t take it lightly.

Once the option is chosen, you must think of something -this should be with a good intention as suggested by the app- and you’ll receive the coordinates of a location close to you.

It is important to choose wisely your intention because if it’s something bad, you could confront some scary or odd experience. Randonautica is only for those who are brave enough to face the unknown.

What’s so curious about this app is that it seems to predict the things that are going to happen according to what you thought of.

There are some creepy videos of explorations that some users have shared through social media. Especially in Tik Tok, where the #randonautchallenge went viral. It consists of filming the results of the exploration by those who are curious enough to do it.

While some experiences may be positive and fun, there are some that are not. Some people have been taken to abandoned places where some weird things happen and with no logical explanation. According to their experiences, cellphones starts to fail or vehicles get stuck. The most curious thing is that many claims to have seen the presence of owls which is the app’s logo.

But that’s not all. There are videos of unknown people staring at the users while they seem to be in a kind of trance. Also, smoke has been seen in the middle of nowhere, creepy figures, animals behaving strangely or cars chasing after them. In addition, finding peculiar objects such as dolls with gloomy appearances, creepy drawings or messages and even human remains…

The reason why these things happen is not certain, not even how the app works at all. Regardless, it’s best not to risk it. Because if something looks dangerous, it probably is. Your safety is more important than your curiosity.

Of course, if you still want to give it a try, don’t say we didn’t warn you…

7 Signs That A Spirit Is Trying To Communicate With You

Most movies have created a misconception that all spirits are evil, that they are only here to frighten us. The truth is that many of these entities are the exact opposite.

It may be a loved one who passed away. That person is still somhow dedicated to protect and care for you. It could be a spiritual guardian that was sent to look after and guide you. Unfortunately, due to our lack of knowledge or even our own skepticism, their messages are often overlooked or ignored.

So, here are 7 signs to recognize when a spirit wants to communicate with us:

1 – Pets at home start to act ‘weird’

Animals are able to observe anomalous activity thanks to their incredible senses. To see strange things beyond what we humans are able to experience. Our pet could be detecting a ghost or a spirit being around us and we wouldn’t even know.

That’s why you should pay attention if you notice that your dog is barking or whining for no reason, or if your cat suddenly starts running frantically around the room.

Also, you should analize your pet’s reactions. If your dog is wagging the tail and looks happy or excited, this may mean that spirits brought positive news. If your dog is all curled up and its tail is between its legs, that could mean something’s there that scared it.

2 – Your electronics randomly act up

Ghosts and spirits possess an incredibly high-vibration energy. While you may not feel this energy around you, your electronic devices will likely do.

Some good examples can be when radios and televisions change stations or channels without you doing it or some electronics turn on and off.

So if things like the above are constantly happening, they won’t stop until you address the situation. Also if you find anything that seems familiar like a particular song comes on all of a sudden or repeats during the day, someone might try to put him or herself on our mind. It may be a coincidence but also a sign.

3 – Room temperature changes

If the room temperature changes out of a sudden and without a logical explanation, this may be about something bigger.

There may be a cold breeze or the room temperature might suddenly drop without a window or door being open. This happens a lot when you are thinking or talking about someone who passed away and was special to you.

4 – Lights flicker or turn on and off

Just like what happens with electronics, spirits also can affect the lights of the house. This is of course a fairly well-known sign, as it is often seen in movies and television shows to refer about ghosts and entities.

Of course there may be a logical explanation such as an old light bulb that needs to be changed or related to a wiring problem in your house. However, this can also be a way for ghosts and spirits to get your attention.

5 – Shadows out the corner of your eye

While we don’t see entities appearing before us the way they are show in movies, you’d be surprised how common it actually is.

They show themselves as flashes of light, orbs or shadows that we see out  the corner of our eyes. We feel there’s something behind, but once we turn around, there won’t be nothing.

6 – Special scents or fragrances

Do you find yourself smelling the same fragrance over and over again with not explanation at all? Like there’s a floral scent when you are indoors but not near a door or window? This may be an attempt from a spirit to get your attention.

The souls of our love ones who already passed away, can also try with some familiar scents to tell you that they are around. Like your grandmother’s favorite perfume.

An example could be if you smell your father’s cologne any time you get out late from work, it could be a warning that you should stop working overtime and reconsider your priorities in life.

7 – Numbers sequences

Also known as ‘Master Numbers’ or ‘Angel Numbers’. The importance of some exact numbers appearing constantly in our daily life, has long been documented in numerology.

They can be anywhere, from addresses, phone numbers, license plates, watches and more. Repetitive numbers like 111 or 3333 can  be signs from a spirit.

Increasing number sequences like 1234 are said to be a sign of something positive while decreasing number sequences like 4321 are a warning of something negative.

Are you receiving the signs?

It is a good time to watch ‘Host’, a new film that will leave you wondering if you are actually safer inside of your house.

The movie lasts only 56 minutes but it’s enough time to make you jump off the couch in fear. If you are still not very convinced, you should know that even the most demanding critics of Rotten Tomatoes have rated Host with a 100% score which means that it is worth the watch.

It is speculated that Host will become next ‘The Blair Witch Project’ of 2020. Despite being a low-budget film that was shot in 12 weeks, everyone’s talking about it.

It only took 56 minutes for director Rob Savage to startle everyone. “We had this great opportunity to scare people with something that’s part of our routine”, said in an interview.

So now you know, if you want to experience some fear in this quarantine, prepare some popcorn, make yourself comfortable and watch Host now. Who knows? Maybe after this, you will think twice before communicating with your friends through Zoom.
