Pre-Halloween Spooky Thread: The Dancing Pig and The Raven

Below, a weird nickolodeon movie from 1907. If you get bored, skip to 3:52; it finishes grotesquely.

I got that from the second video below, in which comic book artist Jon Malin reads The Raven. He cuts a bunch of very old movies into a creepy intro.

Also spooky: This f***in' weird-lookin' cat!



Thanks to Sharkman.

There I was, knee deep in concrete dust and jihadi piss. My partner
"Timmy" (I won't give his name because I don't him to be embarrassed)
put the breaching charge the wrong way and I had to reset it before
diving for cover. Where was I? Oh yeah, the breaching charge.


It
went off and I charged in growling and snapping. Jihadis were
everywhere and Timmy cried out "Good Doggeh, we're doomed!" I snarled my
defiance and went for them, tooth and claw deployed. "I can't believe
that worked," bleated Timmy. I barked back "Just like training - train
as you fight - Get Down You Fool!" I pushed Timmy to the earth covering
him as the grenades went off. Sure it was loud, but that only got me
pumped up.

After taking more down I found the tunnel. Easy to
find for one with my nose - just follow the piss, shit, and goat smell
and there it is. I ignored every order, charging ahead. I had to get
there before they got set. Well "they" were three kids and that fat
bearded turd of an "ascetic" they had. "I've met many religious people,"
I barked, "but fat ones are all frauds."

Well this guy cried
and peed like Derby Winner, disgusted me so much I was just going to
make it quick when he slipped on his own filth. I could see he dropped
his vest button and his size 56 ass was going to land on it. Leaping
back I covered my ears and hoped Doggy-Cam would catch it all.

I
woke up back in the chopper and saw the head of that fat choad in a
bucket. I yipped at that 'Oh, yeah pally - I got you. Big bad taken down
by a girl!" Yeah that'll be a night to always remember.

"Asthma carbon footprint 'as big as eating meat'"

"Many people with asthma could cut their carbon footprint and help save the environment by switching to "greener" medications, UK researchers say.

Making the swap would have as big an "eco" impact as turning vegetarian or becoming an avid recycler, they say.

It's because some inhalers release greenhouse gases linked to global warming."

31 Another interesting type of old silent short film to watch are old clips of people doing the Cakewalk, which was THE dance craze of the 1890s/1900 era. Turns out it wasn't really just one dance move, but instead a framework for improvisation. In some of the clips, they are doing moves straight out of a Soul Train dance line from 1974! In fact, there probably is a direct line from the cakewalk to some '70s dances, so it's not as freaky as it might seem at first.

Ok it's goofy as hell, but those three actors are obviously having the time of their lives throughout it.

I had a cat who died years ago and for about two years or so after I could feel him jump up on the bed and start walking on it. Then it just stopped one day and never happened again. I suppose you could say maybe I dreamed it or what not, but usually I was wide awake when it would happen, like just lying down to go to sleep or getting ready to take a nap. It wasn't half sleep or starting from a full sleep this would happen when I just laid down.

Other one is more recent. It was August or September and I was taking a nightly stroll on a bike path near the house after it got dark out. You enter the area through a small path between two houses and then turn right to go further down the path. Houses border right up to the path and someone put some lights out so that it illuminated part of the path. As I turned to start on the path I saw a creature starting to cross over the path from those lights to the trees lining a creek on the other side. Now I'll admit right off that I need glasses I'm getting old and I'm putting it off but my vision isn't terrible or anything. This thing was not a raccoon, a possum, or a dog or even a cat. It was white with splotches that looked pink and yellow and really wide looking and low to the ground. It was big too, bigger than a cat or a dog or any animal I would expect to see. It heard me and darted into the tree line. Amazingly I kept walking and even came back that way later to get home and didn't see it again. It was only later thinking back on it that I got sort of freaked out about what it might have been.

I've experienced something similar in the Excelsior Hotel, Jefferson Texas, built in 1851. 2 story hotel, all furnished with 1880's furniture (they do have modern bathrooms, though - with clawfoot tubs) So we were there in the offseason, building has a couple of wings, we were in the oldest part, only ones in that wing that night. So about 3 am heard someone going up the hallway outside, stopping and checking every door, and then just fading away towards a locked door at the end of the hall. We stuck our heads out the room door, because it seemed odd, and there hallway smelled overpoweringly of cigar smoke.

So we asked the desk clerk about it, thought he was staying below us, he said "no, I live about 2 blocks away, I closed up at 10 pm, got back at 7 this morning." So I said who was here? and he said "oh no those doors were locked all night, it was just you." I told him what I heard and he just said "well you're not the first."

And the bird always said "nevermore."

Dunno if it qualifies as spooky, but our house is haunted. One ghost walks across the front yard, disappears on the porch, but reappears walking through the front bedroom. Freaks the dogs out every time he shows up. He apparently predates the house and is just walking his fields, so I have no issue with him. We think he's buried in the cemetery three houses over.

The other ghost... she's sweet. She was the wife of the man who built this place. Named Fanny Mae. She kisses you on the forehead after you've gone to bed.

But the freaky thing she did happened when we started rehabbing the bedroom. We kept hearing noises in the closet, in the middle of the night, like 2-3 am. Loud noises, enough to wake up up, like things moving around, scraping. Thought it was our daughter (whose bedroom closet backs on our closet) moving things in the middle of the night. We stormed into her room a couple days running, but she was always asleep in bed.

I decided it was rats or something in the walls. I started pulling the drywall off...and found a picture, hidden in the closet.

Took it to our neighbor (he was born and raised in our house.) It was the picture that had always hung in the living room when he was growing up. He thought it was funny, because he had been thinking about it randomly for the last month, wondering what had happened to it. We gave it back to him.

Never had another noise from the closet, since then. I think Fanny Mae is happy now.

Problem is, Doc Martin basically ruined Cornwall tourism. It had always been sorta a place to "go on vacation" for Brits not wanting to leave the country, but ever since Doc Martin became popular, all of Cornwall is overrun by looky-loos.

The absolute weirdest dream I had happened the other night. In fact I am on some BP meds now and ever since, my dreams are freaking bizzare. I had a dream that I was with my dad on a tug boat that got hung up on a sandbar so I swam to shore, I went to get help and this long haired red headed guy offered to let me just take his tow truck (like that would help with a boat?) As he was explaining the levers etc. Debby Harry from Blondie showed up with a microphone and introduced me. And that was the end of the dream. I actually woke up and started laughing. Da Fuq?

No shot, there I was, training night patrol in a German forest, 2004. Moving with NVGs on, of course, but the barely did anything because the forest was so thick. Those Woodgate so dark you can feel it. I can see why the ancient Gauls and Teutons thought the woods were fully of spirits and malign entities.

I'm close to the back; six or seven guys. Suddenly there's shouting from up front. Run up, flashlights on, and my team leader loos like he's fallen through the Earth. He's in the ground up to his armpits, with his arms and rucksack being the only things keeping him from from falling. No hole around him, you understand; he looks like the earth's trying to suck him down. Says his feet aren't touching.

Pull him out and look down inside. The hole opens up to a ten foot drop onto a smooth concrete floor. Can't see the walls of the space or anything. Radio it in and get told to continue mission if nobody's hurt.

Move a couple hundred yards and set down for a minute. Over by a clearing in the trees, there's a stone or concrete archway with stairs leading down into the ground. By now a couple of guys are starting to get a bit skittish. Nobody wants to go near this fucking thing. Leave the area shortly after.

Found out later that it was a long abandoned rifle range, probably world war 2. They'd covered the target pits with timbers and boards and let the forest reclaim the whole area; team leader fell through rotten timbers and the stairs had been the stairs that went down to the butts for the target crews.

Pretty never wracking at the time, though.

My office space in downtown Frederick MD was haunted. Footsteps, doors opening and closing, unexplained pipe smoke, voices. That kind of stuff. Didn't seem malevolent but was scary as hell nonetheless. Building dated from the 1840's and was in the crossroads of a lot of civil war action.

132 For a while I had an office on the third floor /attic of a house built in 1840. People told me there was a ghost up there but I never saw it. It was kind of creepy though being up there all alone. I could see someone getting freaked out.

I also used to live in an old farmhouse. After I moved in some neighbors told me "you know that house is haunted don't you? Nobody ever stays there more than six months. I ended up living there for five years and still never saw anything. Maybe ghosts don't like me.

The go to for any spooky movie is 'large and labyrinthine.' Old victorian mansions had it. Event Horizon has it with the space ship. Most houses these days do not.

Although I am betting you could do something good with tenement housing no matter when it was built. As long as you have hallways and doors facing inwards and a lot of rooms, the potential is there.

I enjoy Vincent Price more and more - first, the Edgar Allen Poe series he made with Roger Corman is over the top Gothic; and then for my favorite Halloween Horror, there is a trio he made in 1971 - 1972: The Abominable Dr. Phibes, Dr. Phibes rises Again, and Theater of Blood. All quite gory, over the top, and 3 of the most darkly hilarious horror movies I've ever seen.

Theater of Blood is probably the best, and it's almost never shown: Vincent Price plays an aging actor who takes himself very seriously but who has always been disparaged by Critics as being too schlocky and hammy; so one by one he murders them all in the most gruesome scenes out of Shakespeare's plays. I think there's a lot of the real Vincent in that one, and Diana Rigg makes a very nice surprise appearance!

184 I used to really dislike Vincent Price movies. I've now find them entertaining in their hamminess glory.

Posted by: DR.WTF at October 30, 2019 09:02 PM (aS1PU)


I recall reading several years ago a post at Small Dead Animals. There was a local tv station in Ontario that put together a kids' show "The House of Frightenstein" (which is true, I have seen a couple of episodes). This was in the late 1960's early 1970's and they had a small budget, but they wanted Vincent Price to read these little bits of verse at the end.

Price agreed, cut his fee because "it was a kids' show". Price shows up and the costume him up and he runs through half of the stuff. He only had to read the little lines once and he could repeat it in his perfect style. They take a break and he's disappeared and they wonder what happened. Well, Price comes back, he had the taxi driver take him to the Beer Store and he picked up a case for the crew and then sat and told them stories of old Hollywood and of the actors and actresses before they got back and finished up their recordings. And he signed pictures for people and posed for snapshots.

I remember reading it and thinking "Why can't more people be like that and just not be a jerk?"

When I got to Claremont Men's College in the fall of 1979, some of the baseball players told the story that, in May earlier that year, they were at the Division III Western Regional baseball tournament in Chicago -- and there was a game that, had they lost, they would have been on the famous American Airlines Flight 191 (from Chicago to Los Angeles) that lost one of its engines and part of the wing on takeoff, killing everyone aboard.

205 The night of my niece's funeral service, I stayed with my sister (her mother). In the middle of the night, my niece's CD player turned itself on and played until I turned it off. Went back to bed. A bit later, same thing. Turned it off. Starting to get freaked out. A half hour later - again. Almost losing it, I hollered "Sarah! That's enough!".

CD player went off and that was the end of that.

206 The only thing that ever freaked me out was one night when I was hiking in the back country near the BWCA in northern MN. It was like the first really nice warm night of the spring and my Brother and I were camped on a lake all by ourselves. We decided to grab our bourbon and head out to a peninsula made of rocks by our campsite. There was no moon and the stars up there are amazing. We were sitting there when we saw what we thought was an aircraft at first. It was moving fast and then went to a dead stop. Like we're not talking a helicopter hovering. It was like faster than a jet and then dead stop. There was zero noise from any type of engine. It just sat there. My brother took his flashlight to try to shine some light on it but it was too far away. The minute he did that, the thing took off at amazing speed. Again zero noise. We were both like WTF?

215 I last shared this story a long time ago, but...

There's been stories for years that underneath the campus of University at California Irvine, a labyrinth of tunnels were dug. It was a half-assed nuclear war/civil defense idea. (The campus was originally built in 1965, but has had tons of new buildings and renovations put in since then.)

The problem is of course, there was really no plan, rhyme or reasoning behind the design of the labyrinth, and no evacuation plan or even organization of the system was ever developed. People who claim to have toured the tunnels say they found them very creepy.

His Mammy heerd him holler, an' his Daddy heerd him bawl,
An' when they turn't the kivvers down, he wuzn't there at all!
An' they seeked him in the rafter-room, an' cubby-hole, an' press,
An' seeked him up the chimbly-flue, an' ever'-wheres, I guess;

Biden: Andrew Johnson Was President Before The Civil War

Posted by: Bertram Cabot, Jr. at October 30, 2019 09:28 PM (aKsyK)

255 I'm polite as a rule, so I've tolerated listening to people's experiences with "the supernatural" at parties and such.

But, yeeeesh.

'There was a stain on our ceiling. A black stain and just looking at it creeped me out, I knew it was evil. An evil spirit."

Sure thing, crazy lady.

I gave up on believing in ghosts when I was a kid.

I tried walking around in graveyards after dark. Same with "haunted houses"

A whole buncha Nuthin".

I think people can creep themselves out or want to be thought of as "special", but ghosts?

Nah, bro. No such thing.

257 My husband used to travel the back mountain roads in the GA Blue Ridge, collecting stories from locals. He and two college buddies had to spend the night in their car on a narrow dirt road one night. He has a terrifying story of a large ball of light that came down the mountain and circled their car at high speed repeatedly, and then shot off into the trees. They decided to make the dangerous trip down the narrow road toot sweet. And no, there was no alcohol or weed involved.

269 About 5 years ago I was searching for a house to buy. A co-worker gave me the name of a realtor and she showed me houses in my price range. One near where I did buy looked alright at first.
We got upstairs and were looking at the bedrooms. I opened the door to one, turned on the light, and the first thing I saw was a daybed, with the brass rails, and the fluffy white thing around the lower part, and the pillows with the frills.


The creep went right up my spine right then, it took a lot to keep me from bolting. I just said something non-sensical like "Interesting," closed the door and moved on and was so totally glad to be out of that house. If that house - built in the late 1970's was not haunted, then they owners were putting out a bait pile for ghosts.


You want ghosts? Well creepy daybed in an otherwise empty hose is how you get ghosts.

294 I volunteer sometimes at a local house (1879) that's kept open for tourists on weekends, and special times. Although we never see any spirits strolling about, things have an odd habit of moving. For instance, I was there once with a woman and we simply could not find her purse. Nobody had left, and no thieves there, so we looked all over. I finally opened up a screened porch on the second floor that hadn't been opened in a couple months - and there was her purse, sitting right on the middle of a table.

I have > 1000 nights in the Central American jungle, sleeping in deep, in Mayan caves, in Mayan building remains, and... others... that predate, we thought, the Mayans. Olmec, Toltec or lord knows.

One cave, something waaay in the back is alive. And Does Not Like Humans. Violent, angry go away vibes. Lights die, just peter out. Swim back out, they come on again.

Other caves, you better give thanks and make an offering before bedding down or it's nasty nightmare city. Do so, and you sleep like a baby.

I'm a scientist, trained in logical evaluation and investigation, and not subject to flights of imagination.

There's shit in this world that lies outside our Newtonian Physics framework, and some of it is creepy as hell.

That.... sounds much like part of the first MHI book (when Lord Machado is walking down into the cave where he meets un-good thingies).

Which is *not* to say I don't believe you, but rather, I wonder if others have similar real-life stories.

...and yeah, just because we don't understand how something works (yet?) doesn't mean it isn't real.

331 Now a story:


Way back when in the mid 1970's we were camping at a park near the Straits of Mackinac (UP side). My family and Uncle Fred's family. So we were being pests and dad suggested we go to this old cemetery and find out whcih was the oldest gravestone. And idiotically we did - I was about eight, Matt about four, Tom about eleven, Pat about 10. We did find some old gravemarkers, back to the 1850's-1860's.


And then it started to get dark and Tom and Pat decided to scare me and Matt. They did such a good job we bolted. Alas, Matt tripped and I trampled him. He eventually caught up after Tom and Pat finished scaring us and then scared themselves into bolting.

I ran all the way to the campsite, about a half mile or so without stopping. Pretty good wind I had that young.

Anyone who recites the Nicene Creed sincerely believes in things visible and invisible.

It's right there in the creed. Most Christian denominations at least claim to follow it.

So yes, there are things visible and also invisible. Christ repeatedly cast out demons. Did they suddenly go away when we discovered electric light? Is the world now less evil?

342 We lived in an apartment on the southwest side of Chicago when we were first married.. a two-flat... upper story.
We would experience a cold spot in thew kitchen which would always be accompanied by the strong scent of roses.
Several years into living there, the landlord's daughter now an adult came to visit for some reason.
She revealed she had grown up in this apartment. Her mother had died there. Her name was Rose. It was a chilling conversation!

Nancy only has about 10 reps above the 217 needed (plus Amash for her 218.) Around 20+ of those 227 are in districts that PT won in 2016. I know he is running TV ads in those Districts, but PT needs help. I don't think PT trusts the Senate and I don't blame him.

348 We were at my brother's house for my other brother's wedding. My dad and I and my son and his wife were staying in the guesthouse. The night before the wedding we got back to the house very late but stayed up drinking wine and telling 2 sentence horror stories. We finally got to bed, I was in the front bedroom and my dad in a back bedroom next to our son and wife. Right before dawn I heard my son screaming. I jumped out of bed, looking for my gun, ran down the hall. By this time my dad and DIL were also screaming. Once everyone calmed down I found out that dad had gotten up to go to the bathroom, son had just seen a dark shadow, remembered the horror stories and screamed. He scared dad who also started screaming which made DIL scream. I thought I would die laughing at them. I told everyone at the wedding.

352 Haunted furniture: in a relatives house, I was staying in their spare room, at about 4 am from an old 19th century dresser came loud knocking, just like someone knocking on a door. I jumped out of bed, checked everything, nothing to see. Asked my aunt about it the next day, she said "oh yeah it does that, especially when anyone new is in the house. We don't pay it any mind anymore."

the other scarier one was an antique walnut bed - men could sleep in it with no problems, but any woman who slept in it would wake up in the middle of the night feeling like a pair of hands were trying to strangle her.

If you want a good scare read The Man From the Train. Theory is that a train travelling psycho went around the country killing entire families. (There was a spike in family murders, by a non-family member, during that time, circa 1912). MO was houses near the train station, no dog(s) on the property, family with multiple kids, used a hatchet found on the property, covered all the mirrors in the house, etc.

359 I'm a flight paramedic.

One shift, years ago, the flight nurse I was working with and I were discussing the fact that neither of us had ever had a patient tell us they'd experienced a near-death experience, when the pilot volunteered that he'd once had an eerie experience while on a solo cross-country ferry flight, returning a loaner helicopter to another base.

On the first leg of the flight, he started hearing what sounded like a girl or a young woman sobbing in the back of the aircraft. He knew he was alone, and could see that the rear of the helicopter was empty.

He made a precautionary landing, found nothing to explain the noise. As soon as he took off again, the sobbing resumed. He heard it all the way to his destination ... but when he took the mechanic at that base up on a check flight, the noise was gone.

He never did find an explanation for the sobbing, and never heard it again when he flew the aircraft, but he said at least one other pilot had the same experience while flying solo in it.

Scott Adams explained during the last election that novel things are persuasive. Those terms are novel in politics so they help the stories and perspectives rise above the fray. Trump used this to his advantage in 2016 with stuff like "low energy" and "lyin'". That had never been done before and it was attention grabbing. Yes, Lyin' is new in politics. "Lying" isn't. But "lyin'" had probably never ever been heard before.

It helped that he was 100% correct, but you can be correct and be ignored. As most (good) Republicans are when trying to explain the failure of socialism/communism etc. It bores people. You need to grab attention.

After my parents divorced, my mom and I moved into a house that hadn't been updated in years. The extended family came up and did a big one-day renovation and repainting kind of thing, and it looked a lot better.

But one thing that always bothered me was the basement, particularly the stairs. They were the kind that had no backs on them, so you could see through them. I hated those damn stairs. Our cat did, too, and we'd put him down there when there was company and he figured out how to turn the knob to get out!

We moved away about a year later and I largely forgot about the place, but when reminiscing about it some time ago, my mom remarked "Yeah, it was creepy.

The old lady who lived there before us hanged herself in the basement - right behind the stairs. I kept it from you so you wouldn't be scared. That was why we could afford it - no one else wanted to buy it."

Looking through the viewfinder it looked like the figure hesitated briefly as if to let me snap the photo. As soon as I had taken the shot the figure disappeared through a wall. When I got the film developed that shot was underexposed and I couldn't make out the ghost. Sad to say the spirit was willing but the flash was weak.

she came pelting out of there to son and me, and said, "somebody was watching me."

Son and I went in, looked around. Sure it felt creepy, but we did not get that being watched thing. Still, Mrs. Mahon is pretty well grounded, so her genuine fear was a little unnerving. Son and I did not spend much time in there.

The old lady who lived there before us hanged
herself in the basement - right behind the stairs. I kept it from you so
you wouldn't be scared. That was why we could afford it - no one else
wanted to buy it."

414 I remember reading some stuff from J. Sheridan Le Fanu. Good Gothic 19th century ghost stories. I used some of that material out at the camp.

415 ONE DOG did more to secure the safety of the US and its citizens than 99.9 percent of the bureaucratic desk jockey/time servers testifying in countless hearings by the Dems.

Representatives and Senators should cut the BS "Thank you for your service" intros they recently started gushing to career bureaucrats before they testify.

.those rentseeking timeservers never suffered more than a paper cut shuffling their paperwork on our dime. A dog did better than them and she works for a can of Alpo and a chew toy. Those bureaucrats should be picking up the shit of every K-9 in training. Give them some perspective.

418 I was with both my dad and mom when they died and they both insisted that their parents were in the room with us. They saw them clear as day.

419 I think my dad paid me a visit after his death. My husband, kids and I lived in dad's old house for a couple of months while we were waiting to move into our new house. Dad had been gone for about 9 months or so and the house had been empty while we rehabbed it. It was a very small bungalow, with just a kitchen, dining room and living room on the first floor. The dining room and living room were basically one large room. I was restless one night and couldn't sleep, and my husband was snoring like a freight train, so I went down to the living room to try the couch. I'd been laying there for about 15 minutes or so when all of a sudden, the dining room chandelier light came on full blast and basically wigged me out completely. The house had no electrical problems and nothing like that had every happened before (I'd lived in the house as a teenager and for a while as an adult until I got my own place). Now, my dad spent most of his later years sitting in that dining room. In fact, he pretty much only left that dining room table to go to the bathroom or to bed. He ate there, read there, watched TV from there. Everything. It was absolutely HIS room. While it totally freaked me out at the time, I now think it was just Dad saying "Hi." After I worked up the courage to go turn the light off, I hightailed it back upstairs and didn't let the snoring bother me!

So yes, there are things visible and also invisible. Christ repeatedly cast out demons. Did they suddenly go away when we discovered electric light? Is the world now less evil?

Holy water is your friend. Trust me on this.

....

We had plenty of encounters with the demonic both here in Texas but especially during our time in Indonesia.

Christians, you really can tell these things to leave in Jesus' name. They will go.

I don't really relish these encounters. They're not fun. I don't repeat them as scary stories, though they were. But Jesus name prevailed every time.

425 Why does the pig have a big cock for a tongue? Woah.

That cat video is actually douche extraordinaire Michael Rapaport dubbed over someone else's video. Still messed up looking cat but not original, because dumb libs cannot be original.
