Would You Spend A Night Alone In Dracula’s Castle?


(PCM) Two very lucky (or unlucky) winners, depending on how you look at it, could win a chance to stay overnight in Dracula’s Castle on Halloween night courtesy of AirBNB. Bran Castle, otherwise known as Dracula’s Castle, is located just north of Bucharest, Romania isolated in the foothills of the Carpathian mountains. The rules for the contest jokingly state “No garlic or garlic-scented items allowed, including perfume!” as obviously one wouldn’t want to ward off the Count.

Two people will be allowed to rest in velvet covered coffins in the secluded area of the castle referred to as The Counts crypt and will spend the entire night complete alone together in the creepy castle. In all seriousness, can you really think of a better way to spend Halloween eve? AirBNB launched the promotional contest which will pick the castle’s first ever overnight guests since Romania’s post-World War Two communist regime expelled the owners, the Habsburg royal family, almost 70 years ago. The castle is currently a well-known tourist attraction and museum in the region, however this will mark the very first time that they have allowed an overnight stay.

It is worth nothing that Castle Bran was never actually a part of Bram Stoker’s famous novel “Dracula”, however Romania’s notorious 15th century ruler Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler), whose life inspired the book, may have rested his head there at one point in time.

Airbnb said the winning pair will tour through the castle’s labyrinth of dark corridors to eventually discover a secret passage to the grand dining room. There, an intimate candlelit dinner will await, prepared in a traditional way, exactly as described in Bram Stoker’s novel: “A hearty, blood enriching meal of robber beef steak and paprika hendl chicken.”

“Bran Castle is where the legend of Dracula was born, and I have many stories to share as I guide the guests through the dark secret passages of the castle for a private unveiling of its many mysteries,” said Dacre Stoker, a descendant of Bram Stoker who will play the role of Jonathan Harker, a character from the novel.

Would you be willing to enter the contest and sleep in a coffin for the night? We think it definitely sounds like an epic adventure, but one that we will most likely sit out this time around!

‘Price Is Right’ Three-Way Tie Makes History!


(PCM) History was made on the long running CBS game show “The Price Is Right” when not one, but three, contestants each spun a different combination of $1.00 on show’s infamous and colorful big wheel during the episodes Showcase Showdown.

When a contestant spins a combination of $1.00 between two spins they are immediately rewarded with a $1,000 bonus and a chance to spin again. Host Drew Carey appeared amazed when all three contestants each spun a combination of $1.00 in their two spins, delightfully pumping his fist in the air. There have been other ties in the show’s history, however all ties in the past included a contestants spin landing directly on the $1.00 space. Never before have three contestants all added up to $1.00 during the combination of two spins.

The CBS game show has been on the air for the past 45 years, so this is without a doubt an important milestone. The contestant celebrated their big wins by jumping around the stage and embracing one another in a group hug! Congrats!

Target Stops Selling Clown Masks Just Weeks Before Halloween


(PCM) In response to all the various sinister/creepy clown sightings across the nation, retailer giant Target has revealed that they will stop selling clown masks just weeks before Halloween. The company said in a statement that they will be removing all clown masks from their 1,800 stores and their online shopping site as well.

The company claims they made the decision in response to the “sensitivity to the issue at hand” regarding all the creepy clown sightings that have been reported and are leaving people on edge. The clown sightings began back in August when a clown was spotted near a South Carolina apartment complex attempting to lure young children into the wood. Since then there have been dozens of reported clown sightings in various states that have led to major school lock downs and several arrests.

People are scared and the clown sightings have even prompted McDonald’s to put their famous clown mascot Ronald McDonald on hiatus for a bit until the craze dies down a bit. Targets decision comes just a mere two weeks before Halloween when according to the National Retail Federation, consumers will spend an estimated $8.4 billion on costumes. Looks like we won’t be sending in the clowns this Halloween season!

Couple Mysteriously Vanished Without A Trace, However Their Facebook Pages Are Mysteriously Being Updated


(PCM) The mysterious circumstances continue to grow surrounding the case of missing couple Charlie Carver and Kala Brown who vanished from their apartment in Anderson, South Carolina back in August of 2016.

Thus far there have been no clues to lead authorities to the couples whereabouts, however one factor makes this case even creepier. Someone has been continuously updating the Facebook accounts for both Charlie and Kala with creepy memes, quotes and even ominous direct messages to the couple’s friends and family members.

A reporter for the Daily Beast, Kelly Weill, has been keeping up with the case and has published an in-depth exploration into the couples disappearance. It seems that Charlie, 32, and Kala, 30, vanished from their apartment without even the basic of necessities. The couples apartment was found unlocked and their cell phones were both found dead inside.

They also failed to bring with them necessary medicines and contact lenses and even left their pet dog unattended in the apartment with no food or water, however the dog carrier was never recovered. There have been very few physical clues in the case for authorities to investigate.

Charlie’s Facebook profile was updated on Oct 1 with changes to major life events with the updates saying that he and his girlfriend were expecting a child, got married and had just purchased a home. Neither of these facts are true.

Also posted to the account were creepy status updates such as “Sometimes late at night I dig a hole in the backyard to keep the nosey neighbor’s guessing,” as well as news stories about the couple’s disappearance. There was also a private message sent out to Charlie’s friends saying “We [are] both ok. there is only one person that knows where we are … the person that means the most to me and kala she know where we are and we are coming that way for ever.”

Many feel that Charlie’s ex-wife could be involved with the couple’s disappearance, however no formal charges have been filed and it is not known if she is considered a suspect by the authorities. Reports do claim that she was accused of stalking the couple and was seen on or around the couple’s apartment complex.

You can read the full story and all it’s creepy circumstances at The Daily Beast. Definitely sounds straight out of a horror film. We certainly hope the authorities are able to discover some answers soon and the couple is found safe and sound.

Scary Ghost Attacks Caught On Camera




(PCM) The summer is coming to an end. There is a chill in the air and leaves are falling all around. For a lot of people that means that Halloween is just around the corner. And if you’re not a fan of Halloween you can always settle for pumpkin pie. But were not her to talk about pumpkin’s, and a holiday for kid’s to play dress up and get some candy. No were here to talk about ghost’s.

The definition of a ghost is as follows: an apparition of a dead person that is believed to appear or become manifest to the living, typically as a nebulous image. Just the definition is enough to send chills up some people’s spines. Are all ghost’s friendly? After doing some research for this very article I can answer that in one word, NOPE. Yea that’s right not every ghost is like Casper the friendly ghost.

A good ghost story is always fun to read around this time of year. Sometimes a friend or coworker might tell you a story that will have you checking under the covers or flicking on a light when you enter a room. Maybe you have heard footsteps coming from another room that no one is on and thought that someone was watching. It all sounds pretty scary.

A ghost encounter can be a very scary and traumatizing experience. Some people out their might not believe in such hysteria. It is very hard to justify certain peoples experience when hearing about or reading a tale. It is a complete monster when the attack happens on a camera. That’s right here are a few of the top ghost encounters caught on tape. Whether you believe in the supernatural or are just a fan of ghost stories this is for you.
