Ghoul on Ghoul


Aug 19, 2021

Amanda and Sarah take on two haunted places that influenced famous horror films. Amanda takes a cue from her recent trip to Colorado with a history of the Stanley Hotel, the place that gave author Stephen King the idea for The Shining. Sarah stays on the East Coast for a look at the Seaford haunting that originated some major paranormal theories and may have been the inspiration for Poltergeist. Other subjects covered include powerful potpourris, elk sightings, and mall non-hauls.

Recommendations:

Amanda recommends the new Netflix documentary Misha and the Wolves.
