Maybe slightly off-topic for some readers visiting our website, however we have discovered that many people interested in conspiracy theories and related topics are also highly interested in the supernatural fields too.
Covering real ghost stories, the truths behind blockbuster movies and even ectoplasm (ghost slime) – yes, it does exist. This is an upcoming category and we are looking for more writers to help build this category.
Although we wrote briefly about this most strange and unsettling case, it is worth looking at in-depth. The naked body of 23-year old Canadian, Elisa Lam, was discovered on 19th February 2013, floating in a sealed water tank almost three weeks after she had seemingly disappeared from the face of the planet. Her death and the events that surround it is one of the most bone-chilling cases of recent times, not least because it remains unsolved.
The fact that she would choose to spend her last days in the Cecil Hotel – a building with a dark history in its own right – only added more morbidly fascinating elements to the whole affair. And [...]
Residents of Christchurch and the surrounding areas of Canterbury in New Zealand would suffer two huge earthquakes within six months. The first occurred in September 2010, with the second coming in February 2011.
The death toll would enter the hundreds, and the damage was of an astronomical cost. On top of this real loss, a surge of paranormal incidents and reports would surface in the days and months following the events. Some researchers began to connect the two, as if the earthquake had somehow brought forth something from deep within the earth.
As we will look at later, this phenomenon of [...]
Of all the urban legends, particularly those of the Internet age, perhaps those of the Black-Eyed Children are most well-known. In fact, in the United Kingdom in 2014, accounts of a black-eyed girl in Staffordshire, England even made the front pages of one of the popular tabloid papers.
The claims of encounters with such beings have been on the rise since the mid-1990s. With theories that they are children possessed, aliens in disguise, or even some kind of zombie-come-vampire type creature, they are both preposterous and chillingly intriguing at the same time.
While there is no way to prove the authenticity of a lot [...]
Home to a plethora of strange activity and sightings is relatively little known about “Skinwalker Ranch” – labeled by one researcher as “the strangest place on Earth!” Perhaps all the more interesting about this secretive place is that it has deep ties to secretive government projects.
The ranch sits in the small town of Ballard, Utah. It has been the subject of serious paranormal investigation for over half a century. However, the history of strange activity on this land goes back as far as recorded history. Perhaps even further when you consider the indigenous tribes and their oral accounts. For their part, [...]
Whether Hell actually exists, or whether it is merely a word to describe a concentration of “evil” in a particular place is open to debate. Or perhaps Hell is nothing more than a place of torment described to in order to keep people in line. Since the beginning of civilized societies, there have been various descriptions of this place of torment.
Entrances to Hell reside all over the world and in the most varied and bizarre of places. Be it in strange caves, invisible gates, or even modern day sewer systems.
The 2013 movie, “Nothing Left To Fear”, although a fictional film, would take its inspiration from real legends of [...]
Whether purely coincidental or precisely because of the dark pasts that many of them harbor in their now ruined walls, many hospitals, and asylums long since shut down, seem saturated in activity and chilling encounters of the paranormal kind.
Many in the supernatural and paranormal community believe there is a connection between ghost manifestations and energy. Over the course of their respective times, many of these complexes would inevitably build up a huge amount of negative energy. Be it the general suffering that patients would endure as part of being ill, or the malicious actions of some truly horrific practices and individuals, it is not hard to imagine why these [...]
Said to be one of the most haunted houses in Europe, 30 East Drive in the small Yorkshire town of Pontefract is certainly one of the better documented, perhaps with only the Enfield Hauntings rivaling it.
Maybe no more so than in 2012 when the movie “When The Lights Went Out” hit the viewing public. Although the finer details are subject to artistic license, the essence and events of the story were not. What made the film even more intriguing is that its director is a relative to those strange but real events. Pat Holden’s Aunty Jean (Pritchard) was very much in the eye of the storm. She was witness to many of the paranormal incidents as they unfolded around her family.
Are you a fan of the horror genre? Most of us are. Nothing is more thrilling than scaring yourself silly. Likewise, nothing is more terrifying than trying to work out how you would handle events in horror movies. However, one issue with horror movies is that they tend to paint an awkward picture of really scary stuff.
As a horror fan, you’ve no doubt seen The Exorcist. The 1973 movie was a massive hit and, to this day, inspires horror fans, writers and directors with ease. The movie was a great way to give publication to the terrifying story of Roland Doe. Doe was exorcised in 1949, and this goes on to take on a major amount of creative liberties with the real [...]
As one of the most commonly heard of themes of the supernatural, poltergeists tend to be divisive debates. At UFO Insight, we’ve spent plenty of time looking into various different supernatural events that have taken place over the years. The most common – and fascinating – stories, though, are those of poltergeists.
For the uninitiated, a poltergeist is a ghost which is responsible for discrepancies and disturbances in a home. They tend to be quite physical in nature, usually moving objects and causing frightening events. Some people even claim to have been hit, punched and even BIT by a poltergeist in the past. Many claims of floating furniture and the like also tends to get [...]
On UFO Insight, we love to take a look at different stories from across history with a particular twist to them. Recently, we were discussing the famous book and movie series, The Ammityville Horror and wanted to discuss it.
With some of the UFOI team more convinced by its legitimacy than others, we set out with the determination to find out the facts.
Let’s take a look at this famous story – what is it? And what basis does it have for being factual?The Amityville Horror
The Amityville Horror is a 1977 book written by Jay Anson. The book also spawned a wide range of films to do with the same subject at a [...]
All over the world, we have access to stories, myths and legends that on the surface would absolutely blow the minds of people if they were true. From the Chupacabra to various other stories involving supernatural beings, human mythology has been filled up over the years with plenty of candidates who would, on any given night we met them, break our minds!
One of the most popular myths and stories over the years, though, has been that of The Mothman.
Now, a man who is part Moth would not be that big a deal, right? After all, moths are puny!
However, it’s the actual story behind what (potentially) makes up the [...]
For most of us, the world of the occult and the “strange” is something that we simply avoid. Lots of humanity tend to stick to the idea that things outside of the ordinary are best saved for movies and for scaring children at Halloween. Unfortunately, not everything that we hear or read about that seems a bit out there is out there – sometimes, it’s more authentic than you could ever have feared.
One such story that seems to have grown an incredible amount of legs in the last few years is that of the Slender Man. Whilst the mythology of Slendermen has been around for many years and is built into just about every generation as a scare story, the actual development of what the [...]
