Nude or prude: Here's hoping October stays warm for the naked people

A few weeks ago, my friend told me that Shocktoberfest here in my homes state of Pennsylvania was going to do something a little funky.. crude..and nude.  I didn't believe him until I researched it myself.. and the fact I didn't report on it here on the HORROR REPORT may mean that subconsciously I still didn't believe it until I saw news accounts of it..

There is an attraction at the haunted location near Sinking Springs PA that, after midnight, you can enter naked. That's right.. for the price of entry, you can take your clothes off entirely, or just down to your undergarments. No one under 18. The website also says no sex. And only after midnight..that's when you'll let it all hang out.

Shocktoberfest has done a great feat: The little haunted house that could has not garnered lots of national and worldwide attention with their Naked and Afraid scenario.

The theme is modeled of course after that DISCOVERY  CHANNEL show in which people strip down to nothing and try not to die for 20 days on some remote island.

At Shocktoberfest, the nude participants will walk through a house called "The Unknown" and hang on to whatever they got.. According to the park, the nudies and prudies will have to face the zombies in the house. No word on whether the monsters will also be in birthday suits, though I'd imagine not..

Groping  around in the dark seems to have a whole new meaning with this attraction..Be careful what you grab onto, I imagine.

The image in the advertisement for Naked and Afraid that Shocktoberfest is using makes me a chuckle a bit--two attractive, young, and thin models with nervous smiles on their perfect faces. What will really enter the Unknown?? I picture more weight.. more age.. more grease.. and more perverse eyes trying to scour the landscape to see any mountains and molehills ..

The fact you must be 18 to enter is .. well, legally sound and expected. And the waiver folks will sign? Also expected.. but even at 18--think back!--would you have been either 1) Confident enough to do something this nature or (If yes to 1) 2) mature enough to handle it?  How many 18-year-olds just-out-of-high-school nervous, pimply, horny folks will be able to pass this test? We will see..
I imagine NAKED AND AFRAID will become either a blip on the radar of haunted houses..or Shocktoberfest is upping the ante on how to scare people.

Hope there's no mirrors in The Unknown. For some, the scariest site may be their own bodies without boundaries..



The Detroit boom: A friend visits from a trip 28,000 miles per house

This is the AP news brief on the meteor and earthquake in Detroit January 16:
DETROIT (AP) — Experts say a bright light and what sounded like thunder in the sky above Michigan was a meteor.  The American Meteor Society says it received hundreds of reports of a fireball Tuesday night over the state, including many in the Detroit area.

The U.S. Geological Service says it registered as a 2.0 magnitude earthquake in Michigan. Bill Cooke with NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office tells The Detroit News it was “definitely a meteoroid” and a rare sight for Michigan.Other states where people reported seeing a fireball included Illinois, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Missouri.
More information now being revealed.. CBS in Detroit reported that NASA said the mete…

The fake missile warning in Hawaii was scary for residents of that state .. 38 minutes of hell.

Scary for America more may be what ELIANA JOHNSON writes in POLITICO: A false warning of a missile threat in Hawaii sent White House aides scrambling Saturday, frantically phoning agencies to determine a response and triggering worries about their preparedness almost a year into the Trump administration. President Donald Trump’s Cabinet has yet to test formal plans for how to respond to a domestic missile attack, according to a senior administration official. John Kelly, while serving as Secretary of Homeland Security through last July, planned to conduct the exercise. But he left his post to become White House chief of staff before it was conducted, and acting secretary Elaine Duke never carried it out. The Old Cold War guard is gone. The newcomers can issue threats but appear to be unaware on how to act on them.. “The U.S. government hasn’t tested these plans in 30 years,” said the senior a…


I am completely terrified, enthralled, and perplexed by the DEAR DAVID Twitter stream being penned by New York writer Adam Ellis. He is known on Twitter as Moby_Dickhead.  And suddenly he is captivating publications all over the world..

It began in August. He said he had a dream about a boy with half of a head.. He said his apartment in NYC was being haunted by a dead boy. . . At some point he learned that the boy's name was David. Dear David, actually. And you could only ask him two questions. If you asked a third, he would desire to kill you.

Adam Ellis asked a third..

And the rest became a Twitter stream of nightmare potential.

His cats got involved, as he

Just last week he revealed this photograph, which he said shows Dear David staring at him from across his bedroom:

The last update was last week. Nothing since then.

There are currently 559,000 or so followers who have been watching the accounts of Moby Dickhead. Waiting for another enthralling update.. waiting for another ph…
