Episode One Hundred Thirty Nine: The Black Hope Curse

Hey, y’know in the movie Poltergeist, when all the trouble started because someone “only moved the headstones?” Well, who knew that it was based on a real event? We didn’t, until now. In the early 1980s, a couple bought a house in a suburb of Houston, Texas and started digging a pool in their backyard when what should they come across but a couple of bodies in pine boxes. Turns out that the entire neighborhood was built slap bang on top of a forgotten cemetery, and according to several residents of the street, the dead people were NOT happy about their former resting place being disturbed, because a shitload of paranormal activity allegedly ensued. Tune in to this fun, spooky exploration of the so-called Black Hope Horror and the bizarre phenomenon of abandoned cemeteries turning up in the darnedest places.

Episode One Hundred Twenty One: A Haunting Recap – The Demon Murder Case

It’s paranormal time again on this spooky installment of 13 O’Clock, and we’re finally going back to one of our popular discussions of an episode of A Haunting! This time, we’ll be talking about the season 2 episode entitled “Where Demons Dwell,” which details a possible haunting or demon possession in 1980 Connecticut. The case is also infamous in that it later led to the murder trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, who tried to claim demon possession as his defense. We discussed the case briefly on our show about the Warrens, but we thought we’d revisit the topic and give it a bit more depth, including a chat about the 1983 TV movie based on the case (starring a young Kevin Bacon). So ready your rosaries and holy water as we go a-haunting on episode 121.

Episode Ninety-Four: A Haunting Review – House of the Dead

It’s paranormal time again, and we’re returning to that wonderful wellspring of supernatural hijinks known as A Haunting. This time, we’re discussing the case of Billy Bean, whose story was told on episode 5 of season 2, titled “House of the Dead.” Billy moved into a house in Glen Burnie, Maryland with his family in 1970 when he was just seven years old, and before too long, some apparently nefarious force began targeting the Beans, causing violent poltergeist activity and the drastic personality change of Billy’s father. Join us as we run down the episode and the case, and also listen with amusement to our news story, in which we lament the darkly hilarious fate of a 2,000-year-old, extremely unlucky Pompeii resident. Poltergeists and demons and ghosts, oh my! It’s a high-spirited episode 94.

Episode Eighty-Seven: Borley Rectory (Plus Keith Linder Haunting)

On today’s spooky and tangent-filled installment of 13 O’Clock, we’re tackling one of the most famous haunted houses in the world, Borley Rectory. Built in 1862 and investigated by famed paranormal investigator Harry Price, the Victorian-style mansion was allegedly the site of all sorts of supernatural shenanigans, including the apparition of a ghostly nun, a phantom carriage with two headless drivers, numerous reports of footsteps and screams, and bizarre writing that supposedly appeared on the walls asking for help. All this, plus a brief rundown of the Keith Linder Demons in Seattle case, which is in the news again since a new book just came out about it (even though I already wrote one about it back in 2016, called House of Fire and Whispers). Put your haunting hats on and settle by the fire for a spirited discussion on episode 87.

Episode Eighty-Four: The Haunting of Bobby Mackey’s

On this ghostly episode of 13 O’Clock, we’re going back to our recaps of “A Haunting” episodes, and this one is about one of the most famous haunted locations in the United States. Bobby Mackey’s Music World has been a popular Kentucky honky tonk since the late 1970s, but it’s evidently been haunted for as long as anyone can remember. Its alleged former use as a slaughterhouse and a speakeasy, as well as being the site of alleged suicides and at least one gruesome murder, has practically ensured that paranormal activity has often been reported and several ghost hunting teams have conducted investigations of the place. So slap on your ten-gallon hat and climb onto the mechanical bull as we run down the tale of the infamously spirit-infested country and western bar on episode 84.

Episode Eighty-Two: Serial Killer Herb Baumeister and the Haunting of Fox Hollow Farm

In 2006, Rob and Vicki Graves bought a beautiful restored mansion sitting on 18 acres, known as Fox Hollow Farm. The price was right, and the couple couldn’t believe their luck. But then, paranormal activity allegedly began to occur: They would hear unexplained knocking, feel presences, and see disturbing apparitions around the property. If Fox Hollow Farm is indeed haunted, as its current residents claim, then there is a very good reason. In the 1990s, the sprawling estate was home to Herb Baumeister, an Indiana businessman who is suspected of murdering more than twenty men and burying some of their remains on the farm. Tune in to this paranormal and true crime story all rolled into one, plus learn about a shitbag Arkasas judge who REALLY abused his bench on our news segment. Ghosts, serial murder, double lives, and predatory authority figures…all this and more on a super-sized episode 82 of 13 O’Clock.

Episode Seventy-Nine: The Winchester Mystery House, Plus American Horror Story House

On this episode of 13 O’Clock, we’re talking about what is probably one of the weirdest and ostensibly most haunted houses in the United States, if not the world: the infamous Winchester Mystery House. This sprawling, mazelike, 24,000-square-foot mansion was built by the widowed Sarah Winchester and contains many fascinatingly bizarre architectural oddities, including doors and staircases leading nowhere, skylights in the floor, and balconies that face indoors. Did Sarah really build this strange house in order to appease restless spirits? Or was she just an eccentric who liked experimenting with different architectural styles? Tom and Jenny discuss the gorgeous and allegedly haunted house, along with a news story about another possibly haunted house that was also, incidentally, featured on the first season of American Horror Story. Relax in your seance room and channel our voices as we bring you a ghostly episode 79.

Episode Seventy-Six: A Haunting at Allen House, Plus Kent Ghost Monk

Hooray, Tom is finally back! And to celebrate, we’re doing another one of our fun discussions of an episode of A Haunting…this one concerns the season 5 episode titled “The Haunting of the Allen House,” which is a reenactment of the paranormal shenanigans happening to the Spencer family after they purchase the infamously haunted house in Arkansas and subsequently discover a secret about a woman who committed suicide there back in the 1940s. Apparitions and doomed love affairs of the past abound! We’ll also be discussing a recent news story about a man who allegedly photographed a ghost at an English castle, so get your haunt on and tune in for episode 76.

Episode Seventy-Three: The Belmez Faces & Chase Vault, Plus Phoenix Poltergeist

It’s a three-pronged paranormal extravaganza on this episode of 13 O’Clock! First up, on our “news of the weird” segment, we’ll be discussing a recent news story out of Phoenix, Arizona in which a family claims to be the target of a poltergeist who throws things around their home and writes in Yiddish on their walls. Then we’ll be tackling the main topics of the episode, and going into two of the most famous paranormal cases of the 20th century: the mysterious Belmez Faces of Spain, and the infamous “moving coffins” of the Chase Vault in Barbados.

Episode Sixty-Seven: The Sallie House Haunting

On this ghostly episode, we’re returning to our study of paranormal cases featured on the program A Haunting. This time we examine the infamous Sallie House in Atchison, Kansas, specifically the two-year residence of the Pickman family, who allegedly experienced objects moving around and catching fire, the sighting of apparitions, physical attacks, and strange personality changes. The haunting at the Sallie House has been attributed to the ghost of a seven-year-old girl and perhaps that of her angry mother, but accounts differ, and Tom and Jenny discuss the case and the way it was portrayed on A Haunting, trying to get to the bottom of the mystery. Put all your teddy bears in a circle and commune with the spirit of episode 67.

Episode Fifty-Nine: A Haunting in Georgia – Wyrick House and Mr. Gordy

It’s been a while since we’ve done one of our reviews of A Haunting episodes, so we decided to go back to the beginning and delve into the case behind one of the pilot episodes, “A Haunting in Georgia” (which was also the basis for the horror movie A Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia). The Wyrick family begin to experience paranormal activity in their new home in Ellerslie, Georgia, mostly centering around their daughter Heidi seeing a friendly old man in the backyard who she called Mr. Gordy, as well as another man with blood on his shirt that she called Con. Later on, things got a bit more sinister with the arrival of a creepy hooded figure who seemed to wish the family harm. On this episode, Tom and Jenny talk about the episode of A Haunting as well as the witness accounts of the real case, and how it was (poorly) adapted to the big screen. Start your October off right with the ghostly, haunted 59th installment of 13 O’Clock.

Also, if you have a TRUE creepy story that happened to you or someone you know (it doesn’t have to be paranormal, just scary), please email it to me at gravecake@gmail.com and we might feature it on our special Halloween episode!

This time we’ll be discussing another one of our favorites, “Demon Child,” from season 2, which features a kid peeing in a closet and sitting on a cat, a demon named Man who pretends to be a bratty dead kid, and the ubiquitous Raccoon Man playing the dad! Thanks to everyone who has supported us through all 50 episodes so far, and we hope to have lots more shows coming in the future! But for now, Man said you could listen to episode 50 of 13 O’Clock.

Episode Forty-Seven: The Hungry Ghosts Haunting

On episode 47, Tom and Jenny are returning to their fun recaps of “A Haunting” episodes, and this time around, they’re discussing one of the more unusual ones: “Hungry Ghosts,” which was the fifth episode of season two. The wealthy Bishop family move to a company-owned mansion in Taiwan after dad Dennis is given a promotion, but almost from the moment they set foot in the place, creepy things are afoot. Leaky walls, big-ass spiders, footsteps, voices, doors opening by themselves…it’s enough to make mom Candace summon a Taoist priest to rid the gigantic, window-heavy showplace of its pesky spirits. Don’t forget to pack up a picnic basket of fruit, incense, and cash to leave on the front lawn for the unquiet ghosts before tuning in for the latest haunting episode of 13 O’Clock.

Episode Forty-One: The Dark Side Haunting, From the Files of Ed and Lorraine Warren

In 1978, Bobby and Addie Wilcott bought an old New England house to fix up. Little did they know that a few decades later, enough creepy shit would happen in their humble abode to warrant a pretty damn good episode of A Haunting titled “The Dark Side.” The haunting started small — doors opening and closing by themselves, a broken player piano suddenly belting out tunes willy-nilly — but eventually cockroaches, child endangerment, and the Warrens got involved. On this episode, Tom and Jenny return to their discussion/review of A Haunting episodes, talking about the re-enactment itself, and also taking another opportunity to talk about the Warrens, because you know how we always have fun doing that. Spray around some odor of sanctity and enjoy episode 41.

Episode Thirty-Nine: The Haunting of Summerwind

Some of our listeners might remember the episode of the TV show A Haunting which was titled “The Haunting of Summerwind.” The house called Summerwind, in fact, is better known as the Lamont Mansion, and a bunch of spooky legends surround the place. Even though the house was destroyed by fire in 1988, ghost hunters in Wisconsin still claim that the area is haunted, and on this episode of 13 O’Clock, Tom and Jenny not only discuss the history and stories about the Lamont Mansion, but also how the facts differ from the episode of A Haunting (which, incidentally, is Tom’s very favorite episode of the show). We also discuss our feelings about other paranormal shows currently on the airwaves.

Episode Twenty-Five: The Scole Experiment

Often bandied about as one of the most compelling investigations into the reality of spirit communication, the Scole Experiment was actually a five-year-long series of around 500 seances attended by both mediums and scientists in various fields. The list of witnessed phenomena seems impressive: disembodied spirit voices, moving lights, spinning tables, and the appearance of bizarre images and writing on unexposed film kept in a locked box. But how solid is the evidence gathered by the Scole experimenters really? On this episode, Tom and Jenny give an overview of the project and examine some of the problems with methodology that cast doubt on the conclusions drawn by the experimenters.

Episode Seven: The Mammoth Mountain Poltergeist

On this episode, Tom and Jenny discuss the case that started it all. Jenny was primarily a horror writer until Tom told her about a horrifying poltergeist experience he had endured in 1982, when he was thirteen years old. Objects moved in impossible ways, creepy noises like human voices came out of thin air, and an eerie presence seemed to watch him and his family at every turn, and followed them to a total of three locations. Tom gives a rundown of some of the phenomena, using current pictures of one of the locations in order to jog his memory. Tom and Jenny also discuss the poltergeist activity that rekindled at their own home more than thirty years after the original incidents. If you’d like to know more about the case, Tom and Jenny wrote a book about it called The Mammoth Mountain Poltergeist, and they’ve also been on a few podcasts talking about the details, such as here and here.
