Dollars For Death - a pale young woman who appears from nowhere, a jealous younger sister, and a sister learns that it never pays to be greedy

April 02, 2024 07:00 - 34 minutes

We all need money to survive so we can pay our bills and put food on the table. But money and greed possess an insidious power, capable of turning even the most kind-hearted souls into monsters. If we give in to the allure of wealth, empathy disappears, replaced by a relentless pursuit of profit at any cost. The insatiable hunger for more blinds us to the consequences of actions. Ultimately, this pursuit can destroy the human spirit, turning once decent people into unrecognizable creatures. ...

March 05, 2024 08:00 - 27 minutes

People develop all types of cravings like carbs, or sugar. But when someone develops a craving for the taste of human flesh, it signifies a severe departure from societal norms, turning their humanity into an animalistic instinct acting only on primal urges, blurring the line between human and beast.

January 16, 2024 08:00 - 28 minutes

This week’s episode explores sleep paralysis, a temporary loss of muscle control just after falling asleep or before waking up.

Deadly Wish for a New Year

January 02, 2024 08:00 - 29 minutes

As the new year begins, we all have hopes to become better. But just wishing for things without putting in the effort is risky.

Guilt Trip To Hell

December 05, 2023 08:00 - 28 minutes

If you’re a decent person with a conscience, feeling guilt over something can be all-consuming. Like a relentless storm, casting a shadow over your every thought and action.

Sweet Revenge

November 28, 2023 08:00 - 29 minutes

Exacting your revenge on someone might feel good in the moment, like winning a game. It can make you happy in that instant, but it can also make you feel sick to your stomach later. Like a lingering ghost that constantly nags you, reminding you of the horrors you inflicted. In the end you might turn into the evil person you so hated. Begging the question, who will then seek revenge on you?  First, clean, pure, torture  Then, revenge is a dish best served in soup Finally in our last story, a ...

Mannequins of the Macabre

October 24, 2023 07:00 - 28 minutes

We all have that one toy, doll, or stuffed animal that we were attached to as kids. The thing that could comfort us in our darkest times. But when we endow those items with so much power, it’s no wonder some of them use it against us. Some of our most precious items will turn on us, coming to life and bringing evil into our world. The problem is, you have no idea if the doll that lays beside you at night is a good one, or one that will haunt you forever.  First, horror caught on tape Followe...

A House of Horrors

October 17, 2023 07:00 - 29 minutes

We are so drawn to haunted places because they offer a unique blend of fear and fascination. Erie locations allow us to confront our primal fears while also satisfying our intrigue about the mysteries of the area. It also makes them irresistible destinations for adrenaline seekers. But while some use these opportunities for entertainment, there are many who are scarred for life by what they encounter in a haunted place. That is if they’re lucky enough to survive it.  First, a deadly sight Fo...

Friday the 13th!

October 10, 2023 07:00 - 27 minutes

We love that Friday the 13th falls in October this year, our spookiest month. Statistically this is actually very rare. As others are gearing up for playful movie nights and superstitious tradition, we know the truth. We must be on the lookout for the darker side of Friday the 13th. The date that calls for the supernatural to reveal itself. A date that can make rational humans go insane. A time when nefarious spirits come out to do their evil bidding. A night that can be so unlucky, it just m...

Bodies of the Dead

October 03, 2023 07:00 - 31 minutes

The hope when we die is that we go peacefully, that our family and friends can mourn us properly, and that we can quickly pass over to the other side to live out our existence among the clouds in heaven. Unfortunately, there are so many things that can go wrong. With other people in charge of our human remains, unsettled souls, and ones seeking vengeance, we are lucky if we make it to the afterlife.   First, who made the call Followed by a killer prank Then, a deadly dorm room Finally in our...

A Killer Job

September 26, 2023 07:00 - 29 minutes

Hello spooky friends, it’s my Birthday this week, and I love nothing more than getting to share scary stories with you. But not all jobs are as great as mine. There is nothing more noble than having a job, paying your bills and contributing to society. But not all jobs are created equally. Strong, able bodied young people can take on more dangerous, physical jobs. Some people have jobs that mentally destroy them. And no matter how easy you think your job may be, there can always be an evil en...

Medical Murders

September 19, 2023 07:00 - 29 minutes

Most people hate going anywhere near a hospital, since it usually means someone sick or dying. The halls are shadowed by the devastated souls that could not be healed. There are, however, heroes who dedicate their lives to saving the injured and diseased. But despite their oath to do no harm, sometimes the person standing between life and death, gives one a complex. And that can lead to deadly decisions, not caring whose life is at risk.  First, a story you’re dying to unhear Followed by sta...

Running From The Reaper

September 12, 2023 07:00 - 30 minutes

There are many uncertainties in life, but one thing we know for sure is, we will all die. We all know the options of an afterlife. Be it in the spirit world, a restful place beyond, or the fiery pits of hell. But no matter what you believe happens after death, we all know it will come for us. Some people are accepting of that fact, and others will do whatever they can to avoid their fate and run from the reaper.   First, when will you die? Followed by chasing death Then, do not stop, just dr...

Deadly Trauma

September 05, 2023 07:00 - 28 minutes

Sometimes there are situations or things in our life that leave deep scars etched into the fabric of our memory. With the help of good people, over time, those deep wounds can be healed. But for some people, they are plagued by the person or event that scared them. No matter how much they try to repress their experiences or heal themselves, their trauma will torture them or worse, turn them into an evil person.  First, Misery seeks company  Followed by living the dream Then, the dead lurking...

Back To School Fear

August 29, 2023 07:00 - 28 minutes

While many are happily preparing for their first days back at school, for others it's causing pure dread. The idea of learning a new routine, having to make new friends and impress new teachers, all while trying to survive life- can be unbearable. Not only are some battling the demons of their own self conscience, but new buildings and new school years can bring terrible horrors with the evil entities that lurk inside the halls of education.    First, a killer fate Followed by scary secrets ...

Death Days of Summer

August 22, 2023 07:00 - 31 minutes

As summer winds down to its end, people are desperate to get in their last minute barbecues and trips to the beach, as if summer will never come again. But some of us are careless not realizing all the dangers that lurk when the weather is still warm. If we’re lucky, we won’t be aware that all of the ghosts and desperate entities are out just dying to get our attention before we disappear back inside.  First, a haunting discovery Followed by a narrow escape Then, a desperate plea Finally in ...

Satanic Panic

August 15, 2023 07:00 - 29 minutes

We have all been warned about Satan, the pure evil who will try to lure us into doing terrible things. He is often shared as a warning to let our conscience be our guide. To lead us to all be kind, helpful, citizens in our communities. And while we do need to be aware of terrible temptation and avoiding the likes of evil… sometimes the true evil comes from the people in which we’re surrounded.  First, a devilish love affair Followed by the drum beat of hell Then, a daring risk Finally in our...

A Haunted Haven

August 08, 2023 07:00 - 29 minutes

Most people go through the motions of a normal life: Going to camp, school or work, then seeing friends and family at night or on weekends. But some of us feel like we’re on the outside looking in. Never feeling quite “normal” or like we belong. There are some of us that belong to the world of the paranormal. Seeing and feeling things that most people can’t. Sometimes that can be terrifying, but other times, finding a haunted haven, that place where the spirits and monsters reside, can be qui...

Natural Born Killer

August 01, 2023 07:00 - 31 minutes

A full moon is upon us, and while many of us look up at the night sky and enjoy the glow of the lunar light, there are others who see it as something much more sinister. It’s a sign for all of nature to come out and show their true colors, even if that means showing their evil, murderous selves. Because some things in nature, just like some people can’t help their true essence, some are just natural born killers.  First, death disused in beauty  Followed by an urban legend Then, a killer in ...

Flesh and Plastic

July 25, 2023 07:00 - 30 minutes

Throughout our childhoods, many of us had a special toy or doll that brought us joy and companionship. However, in rare instances, some of these playthings seem to be more than that. They possess an eerie aura, hinting at a darker presence lurking within their innocent exteriors. Beware of the toys with the malevolent souls because if you’re not careful, they will take you down with them.  First, tortured by guilt  Followed by one terrible mistake  Then, horror in your own backyard Finally i...

What Secrets Are You Hiding?

July 18, 2023 07:00 - 30 minutes

Everyone knows that person who is a gossip, and that person who knows how to keep a secret. It’s good to have that friend you can confide in, someone you trust to keep your darkest actions and thoughts confidential. But certain secrets, when unveiled, possess the power to shatter lives and unleash irreversible consequences, leaving behind a trail of destruction and despair. So, what secrets are you hiding?  First, a wish you wish you could take back Followed by college confessions  Then, a r...

Into the Watery Abyss

July 11, 2023 07:00 - 29 minutes

We all love to cool off on those hot summer days by jumping into a pool, lake or the ocean, but safely must come first. Not the obvious learning how to swim or wearing gear like wetsuits, but safety from the unknown. The slippery creatures that lurk under the surface. We should beware the call of the water. It may promise wonders, but beneath its seductive facade lies sinister secrets that may lead us to a fate worse than death itself.  First, a deadly reflection  Followed by a dangerous div...

Freedom or Death

July 04, 2023 07:00 - 31 minutes

The 4th of July 4th is Independence Day in America. And while we can all celebrate the freedoms and blessings we have in this country, it doesn't come without great risk. In all different areas across our land there dwell spirits and ghosts that tell the history of terrifying things that happened there. So be sure to be thankful for what you have, because you never know when the paranormal will strike and life as you know it will be gone for good.    First, 100 steps to death Followed by a s...

Summer Camp Screams

June 27, 2023 07:00 - 31 minutes

Some of us live the entire year just waiting to get to summer camp. It’s a world of boundless wonder and fun. You play games with friends you don’t always get to see. However, within this seemingly idyllic setting lurks the darker side of the woods. Summer camps hold your darkest secrets and the truths about who you were at that age. And with all those fun and games there’s bound to be some mistakes, lies, secrets, terrifying urban legends and even death. Just pray you get the good part of su...

Choose Your Own Hell

June 20, 2023 07:00 - 33 minutes

We wake up in the morning with a long to-do list of things we have to get done just to survive. Everything from school work, to jobs to paying bills. Sometimes we have to do things we don't want to do. And sometimes we have to make unimaginable decisions that have unimaginable consequences. You must be careful, because the wrong choice can lead you down a path of death and destruction. And when we’re left with the daunting task of selecting the lesser of two evils, we fervently hope to emerge...

The Dead Don’t Keep Secrets

June 13, 2023 07:00 - 30 minutes

Over the course of a lifetime there are many things we celebrate and many secrets we keep. Everything from small embarrassing stories, to the worst things imaginable. We all have skeletons in our closet, some are just bigger than others. But no matter how good someone is at keeping their mouth shut… the only guarantee is taking a secret to your grave, that is if the paranormal doesn’t show up.   First, a cry for help  Followed by a shocking reveal  Then, dying of guilt  Finally in our featur...

Deadly Wedding Season

June 06, 2023 07:00 - 30 minutes

Love is in the air as “wedding season” is officially upon us. But while love-struck couples are celebrating their nuptials with friends and family, there are those who are not living in such bliss. Some of us are tortured by exes, unrequited love, or relationships that ended when one now lives beyond the grave. And then there are those of us who are just tortured by the rituals of a wedding, figuratively, and some literally. So wherever you fall on the list, take care to guard your heart this...

The Bugs and Beasts of Summer

May 30, 2023 07:00 - 30 minutes

Summertime is finally here! For many of us school is out, and we can indulge in summer barbeques, outdoor games, beaches and pools! But we're not the only ones outside enjoying the warm summer air. The season also calls forth all of the creepy crawly bugs and beasts who have been in hibernation. And not the cute furry ones, but the ones who need to feed. So beware this summer of creatures big, small, and supernatural who are out for your blood.  First, it’s watching you.. Followed by cleanin...

The Evil One

May 23, 2023 07:00 - 28 minutes

For those of us who have siblings, it often means that we have someone to lean on, and a built-in best friend to go on adventures with us. But that's assuming we like one another. Sometimes, our siblings seem to have gotten all the bad traits in the family. They can be ill intentioned or even (pause).. evil. And those terrible brothers or sisters will haunt you from birth till death…. if you last that long.   First, a connection beyond the grave Followed by a book of death Then, a sister’s s...

Is My Mind Haunted?

May 09, 2023 07:00 - 30 minutes

May is mental health awareness month. and we are grateful the world is more and more embracing how important taking care of our mental health is.

Can you hear death coming?

May 02, 2023 07:00 - 30 minutes

We all equate sounds to different places and emotions. Most of us, if hearing the crashing of waves, can easily be transported to a calm ocean. But when you hear the sound of eerie winds, or a blood curdling scream, we can easily be stricken with fear.

Planes, Trains, and Death-mobiles

April 25, 2023 07:00 - 33 minutes

So often we zip around town from home to school to extracurriculars. Some people are jet setting from coast to coast or traveling the world. We're always so focused on getting to where we're going, we forget about HOW we get there.
