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. In life, the girl was something of a scaredy cat and people were continuously playing practical jokes on her. One day at a train station after school, her friends decided to put a cicada on her shoulder. She was so fearful that she fell off the platform and was hit by a shinkansen (the high-speed train in Japan), where her body chopped in two. She now roams as… Read More »
Theatrical Release Date: January 23rd, 2015 Director: Chris Sparling Producer: Peter Safran Runtime: 92 minutes Genre: Horror, Thriller In the early 1970s, Dr. Henry West founded The Atticus Institute to test individuals expressing supernatural abilities – E.S.P, clairvoyance, psychokinesis, and other psi-related phenomena. Despite witnessing several noteworthy cases, nothing could have prepared Dr. West and his colleagues for Judith Winstead, who outperformed every subject they had ever studied. The Atticus Institute Trailer This soon gained the attention of the U.S. Department of Defense, who subsequently took control of the research facility. The more experiments they conducted on Judith, the clearer it became that her abilities were the manifestation of evil… Read More »
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.
Here’s the It Follows movie trailer. It looks promising, partly urban legend, partly teen-slasher. It Follows Movie Trailer Plot After 19-year-old Jay (Maika Monroe) has what she believes to be an innocent sexual encounter, she begins to be plagued by strange visions and the unavoidable feeling that someone – or something – is following her. With her friends, Jay has to find a way to escape the terror that seems to be only a few steps behind. Release Dates Scheduled for release theatrically on 27 February 2015 in the UK and 27 March 2015 in the USA. It Follows was first shown on 17 May 2014 at the Cannes Film… Read More »
A Commonly Asked Question The commonest concerns with most Ouija board users is how to dispose of Ouija boards properly, so this article is the first of many that I’m writing regarding Ouija boards and their uses (I don’t know when they’ll be released, probably bit by bit as I finish writing them). Those who know me also know my opinions on the subject and the resulting "evil" spirits that it brings forth. Maybe I’m more biased than most, but maybe that’s because I’ve done extensive research into the product spanning at least two decades, including using and abusing Ouija boards myself, as well as forays into psychology, parapsychology and… Read More »
he site updates and maintenance are complete, although there are still some issues with the CSS that I’ll be resolving bit by bit. All images and most videos are now up again. Some of the videos (in particular my own) aren’t available; this is because some are missing and some haven’t been re-uploaded since the site move). As you’ll notice as well, Paranormal Footprints now has a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for an added security measure and for future purchases (such as my ebooks). The site is also floating on the Cloud to add further security and ensure that the site remains active. The "Resource Limit Reach" error appears to… Read More »
After its migration, updates to Paranormal Footprints are on track. As you can see, there’s still a lot of work that needs to be done, so please bear with us while we continue working on missing links, images, etc. You might also notice that Paranormal Footprints is also now secure. Most of the site should now redirect to https instead of http. Speed and SEO friendliness are still a concern, so we’ll be working on improving that over the next few weeks. Many of the posts and pages need to be reconfigured to reflect the new changes in Google’s SEO protocols, as well as on Paranormal Footprints itself. Throughout January,… Read More »
Paranormal Footprints is back online, but is in the process of being redeveloped layout-wise. Most of the images aren’t available, but I’ll be resolving to fix that over the next few weeks between work schedule and other projects. Several sections will be deleted, more might be added, and most of the categories will likely be reorganized as well. Expect a lot of changes and content for the New Year. I’m hoping to write more articles about the paranormal and parapsychology, as well as linked references to videos and other sites. You can keep up-to-date on the latest updates on the following:
