The Sausage Ghost

In the 1800s, an industrious young couple moved to New Orleans from Germany and started a sausage factory. Their sausage was delicious, but in time their relationship turned sour. The husband found himself a younger mistress, but they couldn’t truly be together until his wife was out of the picture. One night, the man closed shop and walked to the back room, where his wife was making sausage. He crept up behind her and choked […]

Fort Mountain and the Moon-Eyed People

Located in Chatsworth, Georgia, Fort Mountain is a part of the Cohutta Mountains in the Appalachians. The mystery of Fort Mountain is the ancient rock wall located on the mountain. It’s an impressive structure, measuring 885 feet long with 29 pits, stone rings, cairns and the ruins of a gateway scattered along its path. In some areas, the wall is seven feet tall and 12 feet thick, but the average height is two to three […]

Our Lady of Guadalupe

On December 9th, 1531, 57 year old Juan Diego was on his way to church in Tenochtitlan, Mexico when he suddenly heard music near Tepeyac Hill. At first he thought that it was bird song, but before long Diego wondered if he was actually hearing a heavenly chorus. Soon, the music faded away and instead, Diego began to her the voice of a woman, calling his name from the top of Tepeyac Hill. Diego made […]

Loch Ness Monster

This photograph was taken in 2007 and claims to have captured the creature hailed as “Pennsylvania’s Loch Ness monster”. Raystown Ray (named after the reservoir it purportedly calls home) is said to be a hitherto undiscovered aquatic creature of enormous size. Similar to Scotland’s Nessie in appearance, local sightings describe Ray as being 50 to 60 feet long, possibly plant-eating and “extremely elusive”.  Certainly, asides from eyewitness testimonies and photographs taken from a distance, like […]

The Devil’s Handwriting

According to modern knowledge, there is only one specimen of Satanic calligraphy in existence. This curious extract first appeared in 1523, taken from an Italian text which describes an encounter between Ludovico Spoletano and the Devil. Spoletano allegedly summoned Satan, requesting that he use his body as a vessel to write clear and legible answers to a series of questions asked of him. However, the King of Hell refused to cooperate, and instead snatched the […]

Robert Johnson

Robert Johnson was an American blues singer-songwriter and musician. It was his guitar-playing ability for which he is most remembered, and is still considered to be amongst the greatest guitarists of all-time. Strangely, playing the guitar was not a skill which he was ever known for as a child. The story goes that, although he played it avidly in high school, he was not reported as having any real talent for it. However, at the age […]

Devil’s Bridge

Almost every country possesses a legend of a “Devil’s Bridge”. In this respect, the Tyrol region of Austria is no different. Legend reports that, one day, a village in the valley of Montafon had their bridge swept away by an overwhelming torrent. The villagers were justifiably concerned, for they depended upon that passage to pass to and from Schruns, on the other side of the river, from where they traded and purchased their supplies. Banding […]
