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 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…

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!

Busby’s Stoop Chair

Thomas Busby was nothing but a common thug. He was a drunk, a thief, and a counterfeiter. Legend has it that on the way to his execution, Busby cursed the chair saying that  “Death will come shortly” to anyone who sits in his chair.

The Amityville Horror Part 2 – The Lutz Family

In January 1974 George and Kathy Lutz bought a house in Amityville, NY, and moved in with their three kids. Their realtor had already told them that it was the site of the DeFeo murders. After living there for twenty-eight days, the Lutz family packed a few bags, grabbed the family dog, and left. They left most of their belongings there and they never went back…

The House of Faces

If you see pictures of Andalusia, Spain, you will immediately want to go visit. Old stone buildings, gorgeous beaches, and mountains. I could keep going, but then this would become a travel article. You’re going to have to plan your own vacation, I’m here for a different reason. I want to talk about a little village in Andalusia called Belmez de La Moraleda and its “The House of Faces”…

Lake Shawnee Amusement Park

Scooby-Doo – Where are you??? The Lake Shawnee Abandoned Amusement Park in Rock, West Virginia is right out of an episode of Scooby-Doo…if there were dead kids in cartoons, that is. It has a violent history that goes all the way back to the 1700s. And fun fact – it’s built on an ancient Native American burial ground!
