Apparition of a Suicide Victim

During the late 1800s there was a paranormal investigative
society known as the Society for Psychical Research, or SPR. This society investigated
over 700 incidents which they compiled into a study. The following case was one
of their most interesting encounters.

According to the case notes, there was once a girl named
Ellen. Ellen was in love with a disreputable young man whom her family did not
approve of. In order to ensure that she would not marry this man, Ellen was
sent to Brighton, which is on the southern coast of England. One night, Ellens
mother and young brother were sitting outside in their garden. All of a sudden
the brother exclaimed “Look mother there is Ellen!” Sure enough Ellen was seen
dressed in black walking at the edge of the garden. The mother told the brother
to go and see what she was doing there, however due to a sprained foot the
brother was unable to run towards her. Instead they called in the house to have
the youngest sister come out and run to her. They wanted to bring Ellen back
before her father saw her and there was an unpleasant scene. The youngest
sister ran across the lawn yelling Ellens name. Ellen did not respond. She
simply continued walking down the pathway away from the house. When the young
girl finally caught up with her sister she asked where she was going. She went
to grab her sisters arm when her hand passed right through her. She ran back to
her mother and told her what she had seen. The next day the family learnt that
Ellen had thrown herself into the sea and drowned at the exact same hour she had
appeared to them in the garden.

Mary Kings CloseLocated in Edinburgh, Scotland…

Mary Kings Close

Located in Edinburgh, Scotland is one of the most haunted
locations in the world: Mary Kings Close. Mary Kings Close is a collection of tenements
and winding streets dating back to the 1600s which are now all underground.
When it was functioning, the close was a horrible place to live. Some of the
tenements were up to seven stories high, effectively blocking out any sunlight
from entering the streets below. There was no proper sewage system, so
residents of the close would just dump out all of their waste into the street.
By 1645 there were about 500 people living in and around the close. As a result
of the dirty conditions in which the inhabitants lived, the Black Death soon
spread rapidly. Over half of the population lay dead or dying. In order to
combat the disease it is said that city officials quarantined all of the close
residents into their homes. None, including the healthy, were allowed to leave.
This was effectively a death sentence for all within the close.

Ever since the 17th century the close was thought
to be haunted. People would see strange shadowy figures darting from building
to building. Others have heard the sounds of footsteps echoing down the empty
streets when no one else was around. One ghost that haunts the streets is known
as the Black Lady. Appearing in a black dress, her apparition has been seen by many.
However the most famous ghost to live in the close is a little girl called
Annie. Annie likes to haunt a particular room in the close. She has been seen
by many people appearing sad and lost. Psychic and mediums who have gone into her
room  believe that she was actually not a resident of the close. She just
happened to be walking down the street when guards came, pushed her into a home
and quarantined her. Now people leave toys and sweets for Annie in an effort to
cheer her up.

Why Evil Nuns Have Tormented Audiences For Cen…

Why Evil Nuns Have Tormented Audiences For Centuries:

The director of The Nun has childhood memories of visiting a great aunt who was a nun and taking her out for ice cream. For 43-year-old Corin Hardy, there is something about the hooded habit and the need to look beyond it to see good or evil that makes nuns a great horror trope.

“It comes down to the fear of the unknown,” he said in a telephone interview from Los Angeles, where he was preparing for The Nun’s premiere. “I think it plays with people’s rules. I guess, ultimately, if you are a religious person and you have strong faith, you don’t have that fear. But I think a lot of people are not sure and making a horror movie such as this makes it possible to create tension around that.”

“One reason for the popularity of the evil nun trope is simply that nuns are concealed,” said Kathrin Trattner, a German scholar of religion and film. “The nunnery is not accessible, especially to men, and their bodies are veiled. This brings forth fantasies of what potentially shocking secrets may be hidden behind these impenetrable walls.”
