True Haunted House story – 2012.   Keith Linder after successfully obtaining a management position at a prestigious healthcare company decides the time is right for him and his girlfriend to move in together. Weird things begin to happen within days of moving into the Seattle suburban home.   This griping story, told from the house occupant point of view not only lists tales, but also includes pictures, video reenactments, commentary, and audio of the events being reported.   “It was the beginning of the end when living in that house…”.   Thats what the previous tenant told Keith, after he caught up with her.    It was a living hell for them and a living hell for Keith and Tina.  Keith Linder does not ask that you believe him. He only asks that you listen.

The Devil’s Bible

The Codex Gigas is the world’s largest illuminated manuscript.  The book contains a Latin translation of the bible, medical texts, a history of Bohemia, and several other works.  It appears to be an attempt to place all the knowledge in the world at the time in a single book.  It is a historical and literary feat that was unprecedented at its time.   The book is three feet tall and weighs a hundred and sixty five pounds.  Most historians estimate that if a solitary monk worked for five years and never stopped to eat or drink, he could write only the written words in the Codex Gigas.   That doesn’t include the illustrations or the amazing illustrations. 

The book’s story is more than just history, however,  According to legend,  the book was written by a monk who broke his vows.  As a sentence for this unspeakable transgression, he was walled up allive within his monastery in the modern day Czech Republic.   The monk was desperate and pleaded for help.  He offered to write a book containing all the world’s knowledge if he could be freed from his prison. In his desperation, the monk plead with the devil to help him.  The devil answered and gave the monk The Devil’s Bible, otherwise know as the Codex Gigas.  The large painting of the devil on 269 is said to be an homage to the devil.

BEYOND the STRINGS That Go Bump in the Night!

GHOULA and the 3D Space
present an ALL NEW evening of marionettes and movie manifestations!

“13 GHOSTS” (1960) presented in ILLUSION-O
(Each attendee will receive a GHOST VIEWER absolutely FREE!)

DATE: April 28th, 2018 (Saturday) ONE NIGHT ONLY!
TIME: 6:00pm and 9:00pm (two shows)
WHERE: The Bob Baker Marionette Theater 
1345 W 1st St Los Angeles, CA 90026 (Downtown) (map)
ADMISSION: ALL SEATS ARE $13 (That’s a DOLLAR for each GHOST!) (for ticket info…)

In 196O, showman William Castle unveiled one of the greatest Los Angeles-centric haunted house movies of all time. Although this horror film went on to influence Stephen King, Scooby Doo, and Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion, it’s true claim to infamy is it’s use of “ILLUSION-O.” Theater patrons were given a “Ghost Viewer,” which promised to “make ghosts appear and vanish before your very eyes, and at your command.” Sadly, after its initial release, the Illusion-o gimmick was retired... Until now… 

Now you can experience this unique (or rather BOO-nique) piece of cinema history. Not only can you see this masterpiece (or rather “macabre-piece”) as William Castle intended with GHOST VIEWERS being made for this event, but also for the  FIRST TIME EVER ANYWHERE audience members will receive a GHOST-SHAPED viewer like the one promised by Mr. Castle in the movie’s trailer (see trailer). For unknown reasons, when the movie was released the viewer ‘s design had changed to a more rectangular shape.  Don’t miss out on this ghostly collector’s item!

Like our previous “STRINGS That Go Bump in the Night” events, there will be a LIVE horror-themed marionette performance by the master puppeteers of the historic Bob Baker Marionette Theater preceding the screening of a film connected to the theater. Not only is this local enchanted oasis (while it lasts) the oldest indoor puppet theater in the United States, and just blocks away from the site of the Victorian West Addams house used in the film, but this humble showplace was one of William Castle’s favorite spots in our city. Yes, these innocent marionette shows thrilled this famous thrill-maker. So, is there a better place to screen one of his classics? Also, did we mention that some say it may be… haunted. (for more about the theater’s ghosts)

So, please Join us for this evening of eerie ectoplasmic entertainment with… 

1.) Dr. Zorba
2.) The clutching hands
3.) The screaming woman
4.) The executioner
5.) The floating head
6.) Emilio
7.) His wife
8.) Her lover
9.) The flaming skeleton
10.) The lion tamer
11.) The lion
12.) The hanging woman
13.) ? (Will it be you?)

(for ticket info…)

How to Get Rid of a Haunting

by on Mar.17, 2018, under From the Web

Reposted from Ghost Stories and Haunted Places | Go to Original Post

 My parents don’t talk much about ghosts.  They will talk about their paranormal experiences if you ask them, but they like to keep their experiences hidden in the shadows.  My father didn’t believe in ghosts when he met my mother.   He thought of himself as a man of logic.   He still does.  He is an engineer and he believes in what he can touch and see, but even he can’t explain many of the things that have happened at their current home.  In fact, it got so bad that at some point they brought the priest in for a cleansing ritual.  The priest blessed all the rooms in the house and put stickers on the door frames to act as barriers to prevent bad spirits from entering the rooms.  My old room was one of the most haunted rooms and the sticker from the priest’s blessing still remains in the door frame today.   Having a priest come and bless your home or a pastor is one of the oldest Christian cleansing rituals and is common in Western culture.  The image of a priest exorcising the demons a house has also come to be one of the most iconic images in paranormal popular culture.  Most parish priests will bless the homes of their parishioners and my parents only had to submit a small request for this to be done.   My parents report that it helped reduced the activity in their home, although it did not stop it altogether.

Another fairly popular mechanism for cleansing bad spirits and negative energy from your home

comes from Native American tradition and consists of a ritual smudging.  The use of dried white sage is a 2000 year old tradition.   Shamans used dried sage in their fires to call on ancestral spirits to take negative energy from a home or a person.   Smudging kits today are fairly popular and can be bought at any new age store or on amazon.com.  I can’t testify to how helpful these rituals are in the face of an actual haunting, but I have heard others say that they can be helpful. 

Salt is also a common ingredient in cleansing rituals.  The use of salt to ward off evil spirits has been popular in many cultures and dates back to the old testament.   Salt is said to protect any home or person from any bad spirit or entity.   It should be sprinkled liberally on door frames and windows and throughout the house to drive away negative spirits. 

My sister uses techniques she learned in Reiki and doing energy work to cleanse cursed objects and objects with negative spiritual energy attached to them.  As a licensed therapist, I have had several clients come to me who believe they are being tormented by ghosts and poltergeists.  After screening for more serious mental illness and ruling it out, I have helped them drive their negative spirits away using a principle that unites almost all of these techniques.   All spirits require energy to grow strong and if you take that energy from them, they will fade and dissipate.  Replace the negativity in you and your life with positive energy and let go of your fear.   Spirits feed on fear.   The most effective cleansing exercise I have ever done is to simply stand with someone in strength without fear and have them tell the spirit to go away.  All cleansing exercises share one thing, they take the fear away, thus diminishing the manifestation.   When faced with any spirit, the first step is to find your strength and diminish your fear.  A guide who is experienced in this can help.  If you can not find one,  you can always email me for help.
