THE FORGOTTEN CEMETERY

DEEP IN THE LUSH WOODS OF NORTHERN IRELAND, THERE LIES AN OLD CEMETERY.  THE ENGRAVINGS ON THE TOMBSTONES, ARE BEYOND LEGIBLE.

THEY HAVE FADED AWAY, ALONG WITH THE MEMORIES OF THOSE WHO REST HERE.

THERE ARE NO FLOWERS AT ANY OF THE GRAVES, AS WELL AS NO SIGN OF ANYONE WHO HAS VISITED IN QUITE SOME TIME.  THE PATHWAY WHICH LEADS TO THE CEMETERY'S ENTRANCE, IS BARELY VISIBLE AS WELL.  THE OLD RUSTED BLACK IRON GATE, IS SLIGHTLY AJAR FOR THOSE WHO DARE ENTER.

THE LIVING, MAY NO LONGER CARE ABOUT THE CEMETERY, AND MAY HAVE VERY WELL FORGOTTEN ABOUT IT.

BUT NOT THE SOULS, WHO ARE BURIED HERE...

 

    HAUNTED CARNIVAL GROUNDS

WHAT WAS ONCE A THRIVING, MAGICAL, FUN-FILLED PLACE FOR ALL TO ENJOY, HAS NOW BECOME A MEMORY OF THE PAST.

AFTER BEING SHUT DOWN IN THE LATE 1970's DUE TO RENOVATION COSTS, ALL THAT REMAINS IS THE FERRIS WHEEL, THE BROKEN TRACKS OF A ROLLER COASTER, A CAROUSEL, A FUNHOUSE, WITH ITS FOUNDATION BARELY INTACT, AND A FEW TRAILER CARS, THAT BELONGED TO THE FREAK SHOW EXHIBITION.

THE REMAINS OF THE CARNIVAL LIES IN AN ABANDONED LOT, 50 MILES FROM THE CITY.  MANY CLAIM THAT THE PLACE IS HAUNTED.  PARANORMAL INVESTIGATION TEAMS HAVE RECORDED THE SOUNDS OF CHILDREN LAUGHING, AS WELL AS MUSIC COMING FROM THE OLD CAROUSEL.

MICHAEL DANDRIDGE, WHO LAST OWNED THE CARNIVAL FROM 1965 TO 1978, PASSED AWAY SHORTLY AFTER ITS CLOSING, IN EARLY 1979.

RUMOR HAS IT, THAT HE HAD REQUESTED TO BE BURIED ON THE CARNIVAL GROUNDS THAT HE SO LOVED.

THE WHEREABOUTS OF HIS GRAVE, IS UNKNOWN.

THE LOCALS SAY THEY'VE WITNESSED SEEING A YOUNG GIRL, SLOWLY WALKING THE CARNIVAL GROUNDS IN A CONFUSED MANNER, HOLDING A RED BALLOON.

A GROUP OF TEENAGERS WENT MISSING IN THE SUMMER OF 1985, AFTER THEY WERE LAST SEEN BY A FEW OF THEIR FRIENDS, WHO HAD DARED THEM TO SPEND THE NIGHT ON THE GROUNDS NEAR THE FUNHOUSE.

THEY WERE NEVER SEEN OR HEARD OF AGAIN.

IT REMAINS A MYSTERY TO THIS VERY DAY, THE REASON WHY THE OLD CARNIVAL STILL REMAINS STANDING, AND HASN'T BEEN COMPLETELY TORN DOWN.

THE LAND IS STILL OWNED BY THE DANDRIDGE ESTATE, WHO REFUSES TO SELL WHAT WAS ONCE THE PRIDE AND JOY OF THE LOCAL COMMUNITY.

IS THE OLD CARNIVAL ACTUALLY HAUNTED?  ARE THE MANY RUMORS THAT HAVE SPREAD OVER THE YEARS, REALLY TRUE?

FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF, AS YOU BOLDLY ENTER AND EXPLORE, THE

HAUNTED CARNIVAL GROUNDS

              VAMPIRES

       - FEAR THE NIGHT -

IT SOARS THRU THE SKY, LIKE AN UNHOLY KITE

IT APPEARS AT MY WINDOW, EVERY NIGHT.

IT HUNGERS MY SOUL, AND FEEDS ON MY FEARS

I'M FRIGHTENED TO DEATH, EYES FILLED WITH TEARS.

I LIE HERE FROZEN, UNABLE TO FEEL

ONLY A FOOL BELIEVES, THAT VAMPIRES AREN'T REAL.

THEY ROAM THE NIGHT WHILE THE CITY SLEEPS, WITH A

RELENTLESS THRIST THAT NEVER CEASES.

ENTER THEIR LAIR, WHERE THE MUSKY SCENT OF AGED 

WOOD FILLS THE AIR FROM THE COFFINS THAT HAVE

PROVIDED THEIR SAFE HAVEN FOR CENTURIES.

FOR MOST, IMMORTALITY IS A GIFT.

BUT FOR OTHERS, IT IS A CURSE.

THEY ARE VAMPIRES AND THEY LIVE AMONGST US.

THERE'S NO WAY OF KNOWING WHO THEY ARE, UNTIL

YOU'RE UNFORTUNATE TO CROSS THEIR PATH.

STAY IN THE LIGHT.

FEAR THE NIGHT...

CATACOMBS

20 METERS BELOW THE CITY OF PARIS, THERE ARE 200 MILES OF TUNNELS, CAVES, QUARRIES AND CRYPTS.

THE BONES OF MORE THAN 6 MILLION PARISIANS LINE THE ROOF AND CORRIDOR WALLS, WHICH HAS BECOME A TOURIST ATTRACTION SINCE THE EARLY 1950's.

THIS DARK UNDERGROUND WORLD OF DEATH, IS KNOWN AS THE PARIS CATACOMBS.

IN THE FALL OF 2015, FOUR TEENAGERS WHO WERE DOING A SCHOOL PROJECT COVERING THE CATACOMBS, WENT ON A GUIDED TOUR.   DELIBERATELY PLACING THEMSELVES AT THE BACK OF THE GROUP, THEY VENTURED OFF UNNOTICED. THEY APPARENTLY HAD TOLD A FEW OF THEIR FRIENDS BEFOREHAND, THAT THEY WANTED TO SPEND THE NIGHT LOCKED INSIDE THE CATACOMBS.

THE FOLLOWING DAY, THE REMAINS OF THEIR BODIES WERE FOUND.

THEY HAD BEEN LITERALLY RIPPED APART, WITH THEIR EYES AND TONGUES BEING REMOVED. THERE WERE NO SIGNS OF ANY FOUL PLAY.

THE CORONER REPORT, SHOWED NO EVIDENCE OF WHO OR WHAT HAD MURDERED THEM.

ODDLY, THEIR CORPSES WERE FOUND DECOMPOSED, AS IF THEY HAD BEEN DEAD FOR WEEKS.  THEY WERE LAST SEEN BY THEIR FRIENDS JUST 19 HOURS EARLIER.

TO THIS DAY, THE PARIS CATACOMBS REMAIN A FAVORITE TOURIST ATTRACTION.

COLLIDE, CAUSING THE DEAD TO RISE & START DANCING.

 PINE BARRENS 

- THE SEARCH FOR THE JERSEY DEVIL -

ON A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT DURING THE YEAR OF 1735,

JANE "MOTHER" LEEDS, WHO WAS BELIEVED TO BE INVOLVED

WITH WITCHCRAFT, WAS ABOUT TO GIVE BIRTH TO HER 13TH CHILD.

SURROUNDED BY A GROUP OF WOMEN WHO WANTED TO HELP HER,

SHE HAD SWORN THAT SHE WOULD GIVE BIRTH TO A DEVIL.

ONCE BORN, THE BABY APPEARED TO BE NORMAL. MOMENTS LATER,

THE BABY STARTED TO CHANGE RIGHT BEFORE THEIR VERY EYES.

THE WOMEN STARTED TO SCREAM, AS THE BABY STARTED GROWING

AT AN ENORMOUS RATE, BECOMING TALLER THAN A MAN &

CHANGING INTO A BEAST THAT RESEMBLED A DRAGON, WITH A

HEAD LIKE A HORSE, A SNAKE-LIKE BODY AND BAT'S WINGS.

IT BEGAN BEATING ALL THE WOMEN IN THE ROOM INCLUDING

ITS MOTHER, WITH ITS FORK-LIKE TAIL. IT LET OUT A BLOOD

CURLDING SCREAM, THEN FLEW UP THE CHIMNEY INTO THE STORMY

NIGHT.

   THE PINE BARRENS, IS 1,100,000 ACRES OF DENSE FOREST

       LOCATED IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF NEW JERSEY.

       IT'S KNOWN AS THE HOME OF THE LOCAL LEGEND

                       "THE JERSEY DEVIL."

THE WAVERLY HILLS SANATORIUM

 

BUILT IN 1908, THE WAVERLY HILLS SANATORIUM OPENED ITS DOORS ON JULY 26TH, 1926 IN LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY. 
THE ARC SHAPED FACILITY WAS BUILT ON A HILL, THAT WAS 500 FEET HIGH. ITS PURPOSE, WAS TO HELP THE MASSIVE OUTBREAK OF TUBERCULOSIS, ALSO KNOWN AS THE WHITE PLAGUE. 
IT WAS BUILT TO ACCOMADATE 400 + PATIENTS. 

PEOPLE WERE DYING, ABOUT 10 A DAY. 
A 500 FT LONG TUNNEL, CALLED THE BODY CHUTE, WAS BUILT TO TRANSPORT THE DEAD TO THE BOTTOM OF THE HILL. 
THIS WAS HIDDEN FROM THOSE WHO STILL HAD HOPE FOR A CURE, 
IT'S ALSO KNOWN AS "THE DEATH TUNNEL." 

THEY SAY THAT AN ESTIMATED 63,000 PEOPLE DIED HERE, IN THE 37 YEARS IT WAS OPEN. 
MANY ODD OCCURANCES HAVE HAPPENED OVER THE YEARS, DURING ITS TIME BEING OPEN. 
THERE'S A LEGEND OF A NURSE NAMED MARY LEE, WHO COMITT SUICIDE, IN ROOM 502. 
RUMORS SAY SHE BECAME PREGNANT BY THE SANATORIUM OWNER, WITHOUT BEING MARRIED, AND HAD APPARENTLY HUNG HERSELF WITH A LIGHTBULB WIRE. 
THEY SAY HER GHOST STILL ROAMS THE HALLS OF THE SANATORIUM, IN SEARCH OF HER UNBORN BABY. 

A 10 YEAR OLD BOY, NAMED "TIMMY" LOVED TO PLAY ON THE ROOFTOP OF THE FACILITY, WHERE THERE WERE TOYS AND A SWINGSET FOR THE CHILDREN TO PLAY. 
HE WAS FOND OF BOUNCING HIS FAVORITE BALL IN THE CORRIDORS. HE WAS FOUND DEAD, EITHER BY SOMEHOW FALLING OFF THE ROOFTOP. OR BEING PUSHED OFF. 
TO THIS VERY DAY, PARANORMAL INVESTIGATORS HAVE HEARD THE SOUND OF TIMMY, BOUNCING HIS FAVORITE BALL WITHIN THE CORRIDORS. 

MOST PARANORMAL INVESTAGATORS, CLAIN THAT THE WAVERLY HILLS SANATORIUM, HAS THE MOST PARANORMAL ACTIVITY EVER. 
THE AMOUNT OF ORBS THAT HAVE BEEN SEEN, IS ASTOUNDING. 

TO THIS VERY DAY, THE SANATORIUM REMAINS STANDING. 
IT'S OPEN FOR PUBLIC TOURS.
