Out-of-place artifacts (or OOPArts) are mysterious objects seemingly out of context with locations and time periods. There have been numerous theories put forward, but whether it’s ancient civilizations, time-travellers, or alien visitors (or something else), for now we won’t know for certain. These OOPArts will remain as much a mystery as their origins.
Tina and I have made the executive decision to delete our Paranormal Parazone page on Facebook at the end of this month. With Facebook’s continued limitations, even with the prospect of adding new admins/content editors, we no longer feel it’s viable to keep the page going. We’d like to thank EVERYONE who has supported us over the years, those who have liked, shared, commented and stuck by us, as well as those who have laughed with us, shared our thoughts, and made this experience very well worthwhile! Thank you to each and every one of you! We will, however, still remain active on the following sites: ~Wulf & Tina
Cryptozoology is a pseudoscience studying and involving searching for animals whose existence has not been proven. These animals are often referred to as "cryptids", which includes Bigfoot (Sasquatch, Yeti, etc.). Cryptozoology is not a recognized branch of zoology or science, as it relies mostly on first-hand accounts, anecdotal evidence and alleged sightings, whether captured on video or in photos. It’s very difficult to prove the existence of these cryptids conclusively because they’re elusive or unrecognized, because most of the videos/photos are blurry or indistinct, and because there are an equal amount of hoaxes as actual sightings. ThinkerThunker‘s YouTube channel is dedicated to Bigfoot, specifically to "use CGI (special FX) software… Read More »

The Teke Teke (also known as Tek-Tek or Bata-Bata and in America Click-Clack) is a Japanese urban legend about the ghost of a young woman or schoolgirl who fell on a railway line and was cut in half by the oncoming train.

Otherworld is a paranormal-themed game I’m working on for RPG Maker VX Ace. It started out as a short story I wrote a while back and then developed into something more, with the idea for a game following. Here is the rather poignant introduction to the game, Paranormality: Otherworld. It uses the RPG Maker VX Ace platform and a combination of the Daz3D and Bryce, and the Mythos Horror Resource Pack. If interested in its progress, make sure you subscribe to receive the latest game and video updates to the project as they become available!
From haunted houses to possessed dolls to serial killers, we have a lot to draw upon for movie plots. Note: When watching movies, I make the distinction between "based on actual events" and "inspired by real events". The former infers that it tells the actual story (without embellishment) of those events; the latter states that it’s a variation of an actual event.
