Paranormal Tales Tuesday: The Ouija Board and The Music Box

Have you ever been somewhere and all of a sudden the little hairs on your arms and the back off your neck stand up and you may have even had a sudden feeling of dread?

Or have you just been doing something or out somewhere and you encounter something that can only be explained as paranormal?

Well that is what this collection will be about. Not always long detailed stories of my experiences, but my experiences nonetheless and maybe this can eventually open up to more discussions later with other people.

So this is kind of where I have my first memories of encountering something paranormal. It kind of started with me messing around with a Ouija Board.... I know, it's somewhat cliche but this is all true.

I had talked my mom into getting me a Ouija Board back in 1985 and my neighbor and I would mess around with it. We had a few experiences of something coming through here and there and then one day we when we asked who we were talking to, we were told it was a little boy named David. He said he had been murdered and they hadn't found his body. As we asked more questions, he became agitated and the planchette started going around fast and then stopped suddenly.

We didn't hear much from him for a bit.

One night, one of my mom's friends were over visiting and she wanted to try using it with us and I can't remember what all was said back and fourth but the one thing I remember was the planchette moving around the board fast and then flying off and hitting the wall. Needless to say, everyone was a little freaked out.

It was after this that weird thing started happening in our little apartment.

I left the Ouija in the back of our car and the next day when I went to take it inside, there was a perfect circle BURNED into the center of the board. I never understood how this could happen since we lived in Arizona at the time and it was the middle of the winter. It wasn't caused by heat or the sun it just happened.... and stopped burning after creating the circle....

After these events, my mom had been out for the night and my Aunt and a friend of mine were at the apartment with me. We were all in the living room and we heard music playing from my bedroom. All three of us slowly creeped  to my room to see what was making the noise. I looked around and didn't see anything, but I could still hear the music playing. I followed the sound to my desk and opened the drawer. As soon as I had touched the drawer the music stopped.

I looked in the drawer and pulled out my music box. I held it in the palm of my hand with my fingers wrapped around the sides. I looked at my Aunt and my friend and all of a sudden it started playing again! I threw it down and my friend and I were in the chair (the same chair mind you) before my Aunt knew we were gone lol.

Now just so you understand, this is one of those music boxes that you wind up and they play by winding back down and the little raised parts getting dinged. The music box was in my hand...held in place by my could not turn therefor it shouldn't have been able to play. It was crazy!

After this about a week passed and I was going to the movies with my Aunt and that same friend and we were stopped at a stoplight. The car next to us rolled down the window and asked where the mall was located and everything seemed normal and then all of a sudden a weird look came over him and he shot out into the middle of the intersection, spun around and started speeding towards us! Right at the last minute, he changed direction and tool off. I really thought we were gonna die. It was insane!

I never knew why or anything it was just really weird.

Ok so that is my first experience with the paranormal.

Movie Night: Sacrilege

I entered a contest on Instagram to win a signed copy of a movie call Sacrilege by Paul Catalanotto. To my surprise I won which was pretty cool since this was the first contest I've won! So I decided to have a movie night and do a little review of the movie.

The movie is about a girl named Jessica who stops at a yard sale and finds a gift for her best friend. Everything seems cool until her best friend ends up dead. She comes to find out that it's a Devils Box and is way more than she bargained for (hehe sorry for the cheesy pun).

She winds up getting help from a couple of Ghost Hunters who seem to know how to fix the problem. I can't tell you what happens from there, you'll just have to watch and see lol.

The Good: I liked the story line. It did differ a little from some of the other yard sale find cursed objects movies like The Possession and Wish Upon (both of which I liked a lot!)
The movie had some good jump scares and a creepy little girl....creepy kid's always make it better lol. The music and singing (the little girl) was nice and spooky and the acting, while not award winning, was a lot better than some other lower budget horror movies I have watched.
The camera work was well done and it didn't have that middle school horror movie/home video feel to it and the special fx were not bad for what they had to work with.

The Bad: I think the story could have had more depth as well as the character personalities. There were things that weren't explained much and just kind of thrown in there. The ending is a little abrupt. Not too bad but it is one of those that just cuts off.
Also, the cover is kind of misleading. I was expecting more religion involved, maybe an evil nun or something but there wasn't much mention of religion and no nuns to be seen. I think a pic of the creepy little girl would have been better.

The Gory: Well this one was low in the gore department. Not much for blood and guts so if your looking for a movie with lots of oozing bodily fluids, this isn't it. It had enough to emphasize what was happening though. Not all movies need to be super gory but sometimes it's just fun!

So here is my overall thoughts on Sacrilege.
It was a pretty good watch. Not knock my socks off horror film but far from a waste of time either. I love getting a chance to see low budget, indie films as much as high dollar box office movies. I'm always curious to see what tales people weave and sometimes I am pleasantly surprised. So give it a try and see what you think :-)

Hope you enjoyed my post! If there is anything you would like me to watch or check out, let me know!

Goldfield Ghost Town On Mother's Day

I knew when we went to Goldfield I had to share. It would have been so much better at night but they close at like 5. Maybe around Halloween they have special events where they stay open later. I will have to check on it. I want to go to Tombstone and Jerome as well.

Goldfield is an interesting place to visit. Nestled into the Superstition Mountains in Apache Junction, Arizona the area is steeped with supernatural history. Mysterious disappearances  and sightings make it a fascinating place to visit or even investigate.

Just watch out for the local residents....

and Scorpions!

I think i like the ghost better lol.

So here are the pictures I got. Unfortunately nothing supernatural but still fun!
