3rd Annual Spooky Stories

It's hard to believe, but it's that time of year once again where I share some very spooky stories. As always, I would appreciate any submissions from you folks - it seems every year I get several really good ones. You can remain anonymous if you wish.

In the last couple years, I've talked about the Mothman, the real Exorcist, and the famous Lemp Mansion. What I'd like to do is keep that local theme going this year, and share many freaky stories centered around the St. Louis area.

It should be very easy to do, especially with all the stuff that happens in Alton, IL - which is probably only second to New Orleans or Philadelphia in being the most haunted city in the country.

So I hope you're ready for some good spooky stories!

You can submit your own story HERE.

Here are a few of my favorite spooky stories from October of 2005 and 2006:

The Lemp Mansion: I get at least 20 hits a day about this very haunted house here in St. Louis

The Mothman and The Mothman Returneth: Weird, but I get at least 50 hits a day about the Mothman.

The Real Emily Rose: This story of demonic possession is pretty freaky. I think the recordings of her exorcism scare the hell out of my readers.

That mansion is definitely a place I need to visit when I get back to St. Louis again. Thanks for the links again.

I think I remember putting off listening to that recording of Emily Rose for days...then I couldn't stand it anymore, so I listened...and wish I wouldn't have. That's some spooky shit right there.

The scariest movie of ALL ALL time (in my opinion) was (and is) The Exorcist. STILL scares the hell out of me if I watch it.

Man, my imagination just has a field day with stuff like this. Once it gets going, it sometimes takes a week before I get a good sleep again!

I am not sure I really believe in this kind of stuff, so it's your job to make me believe it haha.

My sister once thought her college house she lived in was haunted. I didn't believe that either.

I love the spooky stories!

But I can't listen to the Emily Rose stuff...that freaks me out too much b/c I TOTALLY believe in demonic possession. ::shudder::

Well, I was hoping to get the shivers and the willies and the heebie jeebies by reading some ghoulish tales.
I will stop by again soon.
I hope all is a-ok with you today.
