The Creepy Church of Bones

On the grounds near the Sedlac Abbey in the Czech Republic,  is the Cemetery Church of All Saints. Under the church is a chapel called the Sedlac Ossuary, a/k/a The Bone Church. Sometime in the 13th century, an abbot from the monastery went to Israel. He brought back some dirt from Golgatha (where Jesus was crucified). He sprinkled the dirt on the small cemetery by the Abbey…

The Dumbbell Murder

Everyone has said the phrase “I want to kill him/her” at least once. You know it’s true. People don’t mean it, but when you’re angry…the thought just works! Although every once in a while, someone decides to try it. But I’ve never heard of anyone that fucked it up as bad as Ruth Snyder!

The Hopkinsville Goblins

Go to any place in the world and you’re apt to find out that they have little green men. Those little buggers seem to be everywhere! They do drive-bys, hang around and watch, annoy townspeople, and even kidnap. And apparently, they love the butt stuff!  (Maybe we should all carry around some lube – Just in case!) Did you know that the first reported sighting of aliens supposedly happened in 1955 in Hopkinsville-Kelly, Kentucky? Neither did I until recently…

Halloween Kills Too Much?

Who’s ready for Halloween Kills? Get those hands up people! We’ve all waited a very long time for this movie. I’ve been reading the reviews for Halloween Kills, and there seems to be some confusion.  Normally I don’t pay too much attention to the critics, but this calls for an intervention:

Belgian Horror Movies

Let me start by saying that I have never seen a Belgian horror movie (sorry Belgium!). I have, however, seen a lot of lists about them. A LOT of lists! Although Belgium is not really known for its horror movies, they have apparently produced some pretty good ones. For the most part, they seem to be dark, bloody, have a bit of humor, and plenty of sex- what’s not to like?

Bruges Haunted House

Welcome to Belgium! Here, you’ll discover the beautiful city of Bruges. Bruges has cobblestone streets, medieval buildings, castles, bridges, and a lovely canal running through it. It’s absolutely beautiful. There is a house in Bruges called Den Noodt Gods. The locals call it “Het Spookhuis” (the haunted house). And you know how much we love a haunted house here at Scarymatter!
