Nightmares and dreamscapes: The past comes back to haunt

A funny thing happened on the way to the hospital.. those who have followed the HORROR REPORT know most things in my private life stay private.. however there were some issues of medical urgency that took place in late December 2013.. A family emergency that led to some odd time slips, warps of the mind, and deju vue that still chills me..Fast forward until now: Things really don’t seem to be changing on the oddity front..Without going into details, the newspaper snippet you are seeing with this post was from May 11, 2014. It was about an old 1800s mining accident that happened in my town.. While the canary was obviously not in this coal mine in 1887, the real northworthy event of the news article is what happened to my father a night before this appeared in the paper..My dad, who is honest and rarely embelishes, was chilled when he read this .. The night before, he had a dream that he was going to work in a mine.. old fashioned mining clothing was being worn by the five others in the dream. They were encouraging him to go into the mine with them.. He was about to, he said, until a moment of clairty occurred and he turned back, telling them to go on without him. He woke up to his newspaper article that spoke of five men who went to work in a mine and never came out alive.It brings up delicate questions such as, was it just coincidental that this article appeared a day after my father had that dream? Could he have been alive in 1887 and died during the incident? Or maybe he did not, and instead was a 6th miner who lived because he never entered the mine to perish? Or it’s all just chance. Nothing more than chance..Nightmares and dreamscapes are on my mind today.. the HORROR REPORT is sure that dreams of my father are not the only ones—surely you’ve had such events, too? Email me at Bryan@horrorreport.com or visit my open lines page to tell me anything.

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 …

The interesting tale of Joe Weller's sex prank line getting haunted

Joe Weller’s sex line prank video was seen by more than 2.5 million people when it was posted back in March.

It involved Joe trolling alleged sex workers over the phone – but some viewers spotted something creepy happening.
In the background, a piece of gym equipment with a handle begins to swing back and forward.

“It continues to swing in a way that if someone pushed it, it would have stopped,” he said in a recent video addressing the claims.
