Announcing Ghost Light Stories


By LouisHeon – Own work, CC BY-SA 3.0,

I’m a firm believer that you can never get enough scares in your life! That’s why I’m so excited to introduce a new feature to this site: Ghost Light Stories. Once a month you’ll be treated to a spooky tale either from myself, a guest horror author or from readers just like you!

A Ghost Light is a single naked bulb left burning in an empty theatre. For practical reasons, this light keeps someone from accidentally walking into to the orchestra pit or off the side of the stage, but it’s also surrounded by superstition. There is a widespread tradition that most theaters are haunted. One story goes that the Ghost Light allows the spirits to take to the stage in otherworldly performances when the living actors have left the building. In a little darker version, the Ghost Light keeps the spirits with evil intentions away from the theatre ensuring safety and success. Either way, you may wish to fire up your own Ghost Light before you hear these creepy tales!

If you have a story of your own you’d like to share with us, please email it to  Fellow authors encouraged to play! You can also follow Ghost Light Stories on my YouTube channel at



What the heck is that in this photo?

What the heck is that in this photo?

A while ago I found this on the internet. I have tried to find out the origin of it but have been unable to do so. This is all the data I can find:

The picture on top is completely untouched. For the photo on bottom I used Photoshop to enhance the “thing” in my picture. I took the photograph while ghost hunting at a very old and bizarre park in Salt Lake City, UT at about 3am. I did not see anything in person. I was simply flashing random pictures of the darkness whenever I got a spooky feeling.

What do you think it is?
