Folklore of Secrecy

I wanted to bring in history, facts, and respect. With a quite popular series such as Supernatural among others either televised or written, many folklores, borrowed from various cultures and First Nations are not an exception.

Enter Sandman

Yeah, I know, most of you were singing your way through those lyrics, weren’t you? It’s quite all right, I did the same thing, so don’t feel bad. Today, I am doing a breakdown of the song Enter Sandman by Metallica off their Black Album, released back in 1991. … More Enter Sandman

Bring Me A Dream

I remember hearing about the Sandman as a child; it wasn’t through the Hans Christian Andersen’s story but through The Chordettes version of Mr. Sandman the song. In fact, in almost every rendition that I have had the pleasure to read or hear since I was introduced to the Sandman, every instance has been innocent, good intent, misunderstood, and complex. … More Bring Me A Dream

The Sandman

The summary of the story itself is quite disturbing and worthy of a Stephen King hit! Back then, I am quite sure that the story scared many people. The Sandman was not what we know him to be now. … More The Sandman

Swamp Monster Pt.1

The legend of the Swamp Monster is not as old as one would expect. When doing research on the monster itself, thinking mostly to be as old as Bigfoot, to my surprise the very first sighting of the half humanoid half leafy murky wet abominable monster took place in 1963 when a man and his friend were looking down from a plane on a swamp and discovered more than they anticipated. … More Swamp Monster Pt.1

Curse of the Pharaohs

Mummies have been part of the horror classics since its first discoveries in the early twentieth century. However, curses themselves attributed to the tombs date far long before Europeans discovered them.
Ancient rubbers didn’t wait for the tombs to be documented and instead, went for the rich noble treasures. There was no home system back then, so an excellent old curse had to do! … More Curse of the Pharaohs

Werewolves of Today

Werewolves are just myths, legends and folklore. They were created to scare people and be fearful stories around campfires.
Nobody truly believes in their existence. It would be quite ridiculous to do so, right?

The werewolves were born of legends and folklore back in the Ancient Times and survived through all the centuries, wars and time. Throughout history, professors and scientists have discovered records of witch trials, and through those, werewolves.

What About Blob?

The Blob monster is not one we necessarily think about when the word monster is spoken. We think about the four original classics: vampires, werewolves, frankenstein and the mummy. However, the monster a blob is could be very dangerous and of nightmarish intentions. … More What About Blob?

Frankenstein’s Monster was written by Mary Shelley, but we already know the story of the novelist that changed the vision of horror, science-fiction and how she opened the door for women coming into the literary world.
