The final case of the Mondays. At least this year.


Hope you enjoyed the 2013 year in review here on the HORROR REPORT -- there was a lack of a song of the year and movie of the year. Perhaps I was going to be extra embarrassed if I named a Miley Cyrus or Katy Perry song as the song of the year, so I chose not to.. as far as movie of the year, I was going to name the CONJURING but felt a flaw in that since I don't completely have faith in the 'real' story behind the flick. The real movie of the year was probably GRAVITY, at least according to all friends and reviewers who saw it. I did not.. so I did not think I could fairly name a movie of the year ..
And now onto the news.
And usual, it ain't good.

Can Putin save the Winter Games from terror?
The Winter Games are only weeks away, but this weekend Russia started to look like a war zone.. There were two suicide bombings, scores dead and injured, and fear over whether Putin can prevent further violence before the Olympics.. Security is tightening around the nation, especially near the Volograd--the location of where violence took place.

Look what 2014 is about to bring for the Northeast! This is a model run of a storm system set for Thursday.. cold air is in place and a major accumulating snowfall may occur.. Stay tuned if you're in the area.. Don't expect to do much Thursday. Get the pizza and beer now.

There is still fear in 2014.. There have been some interesting and unsettling earthquakes in the Canary Islands over the past few days--this has happened before. When it did, there were rumors that a giant East Coast tsunami would occur. That was helped by people like John Moore on his radio program.. Now that the rumbling is happening again, those same rumors are being told. John Hogue is weighing in on the earthquake swarm and potential ramifications if Las Palmas euptions take place..

From "Two years after a new underwater volcano appeared offshore of El Hierro in the Canary Islands, earthquake swarms and a sudden change in height suggest a new eruption is brewing near the island's villages, officials announced today"

If a big tsunami did occur, it would cause devastation in the aftermath.. Predictions that it would be 300 feet high, cover islands.. And here is a map of what it could do to the United States.
And it just so happened that this all occurred around the same time of these warnings of increased volcanic and seismic activity: A strong 5.4 shakes the Canary Islands..

"Military style attack" on California power station..
Was the mysterious attack on the station a rehearsal for a larger assault on the United States power grid?

Imagine driving down the road at 65 MPH and your car reacts as though it hit a truck. But it didn't. Your car just got hacked..

The passengers trapped aboard the Akademik Shokalskiy off the coast of Antarctica have prepared a makeshift helipad on the ice to enable a helicopter rescue after an Australian icebreaker was unable to reach them.

The sun has flipped..

'Tis the season for the seasonal flu.. but there seems to be a bigger number of H1N1 this year.. 60 cases in Chicago alone at this point, Michigan seeing an increase.. Massachusetts has a dominant strain.. and the South Central United States..

Remember a few days ago, the HORROR REPORT told you about 'big Bertha' getting stuck under Seattle? The big drill isn't moving.. Well, it did not take long for some to come up with some interesting theories: Including aliens! "Possible alien activities" underground .. And we can thank Big Bertha if we uncover a dramatic history-changing event..

Someone who worked in the US drone program writes in the UK GUARDIAN about what she saw..

Interesting article: The effects of nursing on nurses..

Weird: Ted Cruz taking 'steps' to renounce his Canadian citizenship..

Fireball lights up Iowa sky..

The best horror in 2013..

With the holidays just about over, here's a good story for you to study: How to detox your holiday body..

FROZEN beats THE HOBBIT at box office..

AMITYVILLE HORROR reboot gets January 2015 release date.. And as so many movies go these days, a 'lost footage them' is going to be present in the new adaptation..



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…


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…
