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.
Whether purely coincidental or precisely because of the dark pasts that many of them harbour 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 rivalling 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 [...]
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 [...]
