Yesterday the HORROR REPORT wrote about Elisa Lam's unfortunate death--and video of her strange behavior prior to it.. The Cecil Hotel has a long and sordid history. In February, CNN did a report that covers the full oddities that occurred at the Cecil.. The hotel caters to young international travelers.. But the hotel of horrors has a dark past. Besides the serial killers, the hotel also became a popular place in the 1950s where people would simply rent rooms and jump out of the windows..

This is getting beyond creepy.. A few days ago the world became aware of the plight of the family of Kendrick Johnson. Johnson was 17, was found dead rolled up in a gym mat, and had an autopsy in which his cause of death was ruled accidental. A second autopsy was conducted but , when he was opened up for the procedure, it was discovered that his body was stuffed with newspapers .. his brain, heart, and lungs were missing. Even organ from his pelvis to his skull were gone. And now enter this story: Ryan Singleton, 24, moved from Atlanta to Hollywood this summer... He turned up dead in Death Valley and his organs were missing .. These stories are NOT connected. But they are only similar in their strangeness.. Last night Clyde Lewis spoke about the two bizarre tales on his show GROUND ZERO... It's difficult to imagine the suffering each family is going through--a mystery of not knowing what someone you loved even died is one thing, but the added on strangeness of bodies missing organs or bodies being stuffed with newspapers adds so much insult to injury..

STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..


Before discussion.. take a glance:



My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…

THE UNLUCK OF THE IRISH: TROPICAL STORM MAY HIT IRELAND!!

Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …

A dog eat dog afterlife

I read a somewhat moving article on HUFF PARANORMAL about a man who lost his pet dog.. In death, he sought to find the animal’s spirit.. His method was to use a smoke bomb and camera.. The author of the article is sure that he saw the face of his beloved deceased pet on the foggy image..
Before you laugh and mock, there’s two things to note.. First off, science can explain so much. But there’s a cutoff when science stops.. At least at this point. Logic may say that this image is just smoke within smoke.. For for the believer when faith, it’s something more. And science by no means can explain even a morsel of faith., And secondly– perhaps this would be more for pet owners– who didn’t lose an animal and feel the presence of that same beloved pet after death? And even more, I have known a handful of people that claimed per visitation from an afterlife.. In my own circumstance, I fondly remember seeing my dog Newt walk by my door. It was after he died. I had a witness– he saw it but years l…
