IN THIS EPISODE: (Dark Archives episode with stories from August 31, 2018 and September 01, 2018.) *** In May, 2017, another 7,000 unmarked graves were found on the campus of Mississippi Medical Center. But this gruesome discovery is only the beginning of the dark and twisted history of how the bodies got there. (The Land of 10,000 Unmarked Graves) *** Dark Watchers… they are mentioned in a number of ancient legends and are well-known in several US states. But who or what are they, and where do they come from? (Mysterious Dark Watchers) *** There is an ancient, superstitious and almost universal belief that certain people possess the supernatural power to cause disaster, illness, calamity and even death. They have an ability to do it with a gaze or stare – what we’ve come to know as the evil eye. (The Curse of The Evil Eye) *** Plus, I’ll share a creepypasta at the end of the show that is sure to give you chills! (Come And Play) *** Mysterious, loud booming noises have been heard all over the country without explanation. But now it has become even creepier, as some men in black have been poking around asking questions and interviewing witnesses. (Men In Black and Unexplained Booms) *** A convicted murderer and suspected serial killer lurks in the frames of the horror classic, The Exorcist. (The Real Life Killer Who Appeared In The Exorcist) *** A mysterious old man shows up at the scene of two auto accidents – twenty years apart! (My Guardian Angel) *** The older citizens in Durango, Mexico tell of a frightening entity known as the La Ilorona. (La Ilorona) *** A woman tells of seeing a dead relative on her way out to do her weekly grocery shopping. (Doppelganger, Ghost, or Imagination?) *** Drenched in sun and perched above the glistening water of Tampa Bay, the Sunshine Skyway Bridge doesn’t look haunted. However, appearances can be deceiving. (Tampa’s Haunted Sunshine Skyway Bridge) *** The rapid decline of traffic on Route 66 sounded the death knell for hundreds of businesses – including Diamonds Restaurant. But that hasn’t stopped the undead from continuing to frequent the place. (Ghosts of Diamonds Restaurant) *** Die without being married and you could be doomed to haunt the world forever – at least according to an ancient Chinese custom. And thus, “ghost weddings” became a reality. (Ghost Marriage) *** What was intended as a romantic getaway under the stars turned into a frightful getaway from a horrible sound. (Unnatural Sound On Mt. Saint Helens) *** A string of murders in Wineville, California caused the town to change its name – and inspired an Angelina Jolie movie. (The Wineville Chicken Coop Murders)
