You’re dead asleep in your bedroom well past the midnight hour when suddenly you awaken. You’re staring at a corner of the room you always do when you wake up in the middle of the night, but are you awake? You can see the wall and a little light trickling in from the window as your eyes continue to adjust. Then you see him, the black shadow molds itself into a towering figure of horror. It looks like the figure may be wearing a trench coat and all the way up at the top of this soaring shadow sits and old, wide-brimmed hat. You can’t move or scream, you are at the mercy of THE HATMAN. So, who is The Hatman? There are many answers and theories to that question. Is he a shadow person, an alien, or a demonic entity from the fourth dimension? Is he just a hallucination that’s the result of sleep paralysis or a figment of the imagination? If so, how can we explain the fact that this spooky vision has been witnessed by so many unconnected people all over the world? Is it feasible to think that there can be a nightmare phenomena playing out on such a global scale? Get ready for an episode that you should not listen to with the lights off, unless you want your nightmares bleeding over into your reality…
We’re all familiar with the Mad Scientist stereotype. Hair freshly styled by sticking a fork in an outlet. Lab coat stained with potentially radioactive fluids. Thick safety glasses shielding maniacally wide eyes but not the extremely bushy eyebrows destined to be burnt off in the near future. Maybe an assistant named Pinky or Igor, an evil laugh and a plot to take over the world. But we’re all probably less familiar with some of the unusual experiments conducted in the name of science. This week on the Forbidden Five we examined everything from electrified sheep to intercourse with batteries.
Travel back to the filthy medieval era this week as we examine the horrifying history of Peter Niers. In this brutal, bone-crushing episode we speak about the strange black magic rituals explored by Niers, as well as his deal with the Devil. We discuss his atrocities in grave detail which make most modern day serial killers pale in comparison. This one has it all, from the bizarre, to the supernatural, to cannibalism, and gory torture. Prepare yourself now because... THE END IS NIERS!
This week on the Odd News we discuss the bizarre case of Mercy Brown. After both her mother and sister died of consumption, Mercy and her brother Edwin fell ill. Eventually the 19-year-old New England girl died on January 17, 1892. The locals became convinced that Mercy was rising from the grave and feeding on her sick brother, helping continue to foster his illness. The only way to be able to know for sure is if they dug up her graved and checked... In addition we discuss the recent online murder confession of pro wrestler Marty Jannetty. Known for posting strange statements on his social media accounts this time Marty is being investigated by the police, but the real question is, should we have mercy on Marty?
Feeling a little warm? Well this week we raise the temperature to explosive, ash inducing conditions. What if you went to the store for a pack of smokes and when you returned your mom looked like an ashtray? A boneless pile of soot that would have been better suited for a fireplace. SHC can allegedly happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time. Some of the sweat worthy cases that we cover seem like they may have a means of explanation, while others are far more difficult to rationalize. Join us this week as we try to decide if SHC is real, or if the people telling these tales are just blowing smoke up our asses...
You heard about them before, but the real life sightings of the infamous Men in Black are a far departure from the cartoonish blockbuster films and Saturday morning cartoon series. The real life encounters are closer to something out of your most depraved nightmares. This week we dive deep into a few obscure cases that escalate to point where you might reconsider announcing aloud to the whole town that UFO you saw out in the cornfield. To a point where you'll fear the next time you hear the sound of knuckles knocking against your door at night. To a point where you're no longer alone with your own thoughts. Get ready to venture into the seemingly impossible. Be warned, otherwise the Men in Black may be seeking you out next...
This week we take a look at some particularly disturbing Odd News that ranges from strange, to disgusting, to downright heinous. First we dive into an alarming series of horse mutilations that are plaguing the beautiful green pastures in France. Could it be the work of a sinister cult of horse-hackers? Then we discuss a family that showed their love a little too deeply, in the recent case of an incestuous romance between a 63-year-old mother, and her 43-year-old son. The duo of deranged family flames could be facing an extraordinary prison sentence. Lastly, a twisted New Jersey couple commits unspeakable acts against their newborn baby...
What do you think of when you hear the word saint? Would a saint steal? Would a saint lie? Would a saint kill a woman? This week on the Forbidden Five we go though a list of saints from a sinister side of the spectrum. One's with sins and skeletons that will raise your eyebrows and leave you question your faith. These ain't your father's saints... or are they? Should they be famous or infamous? Are they worthy of the reverence of the masses or just scum from the gutter like all of us?
This weeks episode has it all, strange creatures with unearthly powers that seem indestructible no matter how savage the opposition is. Bizarre portals opening up in the sky and leading to only God knows where. Shapeshifters able to melt and remold, transforming into the wickedest creations. Mutilated animals destroyed by a diabolical force, and of course some unidentifiable flying craft sailing through the pinkish skies looking down upon us. This week prepare for an experience like no other, journey with us to the infamous Skinwalker Ranch...
Imagine you're 16 and on your way home from an overnight party with friends. You finally arrive home after the long evening and pull the front door of your house open and see your dad sitting in a chair, well part of him... Actually his head has been decapitated and placed in a bowl of punch which is sitting in the chair. This is what Ryan Brooks stumbled upon during the autumn season in Bellaire Ohio back in 1985. The gruesome act was the tipping point in a series of disturbing events that would lead to a small town canceling Halloween due to fears of a conspiracy that a cult of devil worshipping satanic maniacs were attempting to hunt them down. No one was safe, no one knew who the next target might be. Join us this week for the night that Halloween was canceled, as well as two other stories about Halloween traditions that went horribly wrong. From your friends at Evil Examined Happy Halloween...
In our special Samhain edition we take a look at five rotten Halloween horror stories about both tricks and treats.

This week on our Halloween Hangover edition we review the disgusting and warped story of Sylvia Likens. Imagine you're sixteen-years-old and left by your carney parents at a strangers house to be cared for. It's a simple deal, they send a few dollars to cover your expenses and you are looked after. But what if the money stopped coming in and the people that were looking after you didn't truly have you best interest in mind. What if they despised you and enjoyed watching you suffer. What if they took deep pleasure inflicting pain on you? In one of our most grueling conversations we trace over the torturous final month in the life of Sylvia Likens, in which atrocity after atrocity was committed against her.
This week we bring you a special signature episode recorded directly from the infamous Conjuring House. The setting for one of the more successful haunted house/possession movies in recent cinema, the Conjuring House has allegedly been the site of many inexplicable happenings ranging from inhuman movements, to bloody surprises, to disgusting smells, to inanimate objects flying, to vicious attacks. In this first episode we detail our initial tour of this creepy old house and outline some of the details from Andrea Perron's books House of Darkness House of Light (volumes 1-3). Andrea Perron was the eldest daughter living in the house when many of these otherworldly events occurred, eventually causing Ed and Lorraine Warren to launch their demonic investigation.
This week we bring you a second special signature episode recorded directly from the infamous Conjuring House. The setting for one of the more successful haunted house/possession movies in recent cinema, the Conjuring House has allegedly been the site of many inexplicable happenings ranging from inhuman movements, to bloody surprises, to disgusting smells, to inanimate objects flying, to vicious attacks. In this first episode we detail our initial tour of this creepy old house and outline some of the details from Andrea Perron's books House of Darkness House of Light (volumes 1-3). Andrea Perron was the eldest daughter living in the house when many of these otherworldly events occurred, eventually causing Ed and Lorraine Warren to launch their demonic investigation. Also, learn if our attempts to contact the dead were successful...
The internet can be used for a variety of things, ranging from the mundane regularity of simple office work to keeping in contact with your family and friends. It can also be used for much darker and more nefarious purposes. It can stream disturbing depictions perviously unseen straight into your handheld mobile device or television completely unfiltered. This week on the Odd News we take a look at two different cases where death was streamed to both unaware viewers and even more sinisterly, viewers that salivated over the violence and even encouraged it. Prepare yourself for utter HD filth and depravity as we channel pure horror and broadcast THE DEATH STREAM.
The cutting off of ones manhood is less rare than you think but only occasionally publicized. We all remember the dismembered member of John Wayne Bobbit, but in this wince-inducing episode we set our sights on few severed sausages with a lesser known brand names. What happens afterwards? How will these men continue life? The motivation and outcomes of these gory attacks varies but the results are all the same; the agonizing separation of men and their willies.
Nicknamed "Pee Wee" due to his short stature, there was nothing short or small about the gruesome mayhem that Donald Henry Gaskins brought into the world. Spawned by a broken family, Gaskins fermented in a pool of perversion before his mental framework was erected. Violence, robbery, and rape were common themes in Gaskins' childhood, which he embraced en route to adulthood. In and out of juvenile detention centers and prison, looking back it was anything but a surprise that he matured into a cold blooded murderer. The acts of unforgivable savagery and horror are stomach-churning. Join us this week, if you dare, for Pee Wee's magical murder spree...
There is a time in our lives when everything and everyone seems harmless. When the world is mostly a mystery and the simple aspects of life are all that matter. If we're fortunate enough, our parents are watching over us and creating a comforting sense of security. But parents can't be around their kids 24/7, they have to work and sometimes they have to play too. There is a fraction of time that sees us as children left under the supervision of friends, family, or sometimes even total strangers... During those small periods of temporary trust we are at their mercy. Join us this week for the Odd News as we explore the first episode of our two part special; Shitty Sitters.
Last week on the Odd News we tackled a more recent case of a murderous babysitter. This week we dive back into the annals of history and flush out the biggest turds over time, and these are some beauties. We take a look at five of the most nightmarish babysitters who did everything but provide care for the children they were supposed to be looking after. The horror is real, the violence is unimaginable, the irony is infuriating. Join us this week for the Forbidden Five as we examine killer babysitters.
During the new year we all tend to think about the future. We think about what comes next. We think about what we can change about ourselves to make us better. We think about ways that we can make circumstances better for our families and friends. We attempt to evolve to a form that is superior to the prior year's version. But not everyone sees it that way. There are others who will aim to continue their gutter-dwelling goon-like ways. Others who will continue to be selfish and horrible people. Others who look at human life like it's expendable. This week we take a look at a couple of cases of scum like this. Because sadly, regardless of how you aim to be a better human, there will always be those who are ready to put a hot bullet into that new wrinkle that your brain just adopted.
No matter how much time we spend trying to keep our children safe and out of harm's way they will always be vulnerable. The creature comforts that have come to be embedded in our DNA are too convenient and important to shun due to their relatively sporadic risks. It is simply impossible now to imagine a world that's not at your fingertips. But make no mistake about it, that comes with a cost... Strangers are in your children's bedrooms, phones, and earbuds. Influencing their actions, manipulating their motions, and spreading evil. This week we take a look at some nefarious beings who sought to introduce a bizarre new game that spread like a disease to the youth. One that only ends once they're dead...
When you hear the words "Witness Protection" most people think, based on movies, books, and other media, that they understand what the program offers and its overall purpose. But often the true details of what being under witness protection is really like never make the scenes of glorified Hollywood version of events. This week we learn about cases that didn't turn out how most would assume, and even in some circumstances allowed perverse killers to flourish. A man needed protection from the dark criminal underbelly that he'd willingly become a part of. But yet, that same protection was not offered to the unsuspecting general public when a man with a sinister past was plucked and dropped into a completely oblivious community...
During the evening hours of May 23rd, 2014 Elliot Rodger murdered six people in cold-blooded and disturbing fashion. Then when confronted by police he turned his gun on himself and joined the body count that he'd helped accumulated. Why would young man that came from a wealthy family, and that was enrolled in college with his entire life still ahead of him commit such unspeakable acts? The answer is simple but shocking; Elliot Rodger just wanted a girlfriend. He felt shunned by society's feminine populous and couldn't understand why a 'supreme gentleman' such as himself wouldn't be sought after. He felt entitled to have any woman he wanted, the only problem was that none of them felt the same way...
This week on the Odd News we discuss the dognapping of Lady Gaga's pups. A robbery clearly gone wrong that left her dog walker shot in the chest. Additionally, we discuss what it was like to visit the now defunct and highly bizarre religious theme park in Connecticut called "Holy Land." Amid the ruins of the rotting religious symbolism lays a darker story. One that took place near a 50 ft tall cross between a young girl and an older guy she thought was her friend. Learn the horrific events that transpired there and also get a first hand account of what the strange park is like.
Possession is a long debated topic; can your body be controlled by another force? Spiritually it's still a debate, but this week we discuss the indisputable chemical reality. Horror stories of hallucinations and altered states of mind that pushed everyone, from your average everyday citizens looking to dip their toes into hard drugs, to the frequent habitual users that took on a dose that was too heavy, into pure pandemonium. These drug fueled rampages are ones that we can all be thankful that did not happen to be on the warpath for. It probably sounds like a public service announcement but it's really just the disturbing truth. Prepare yourself for the worst as we examine these terrible tweakers!
A question we as a society often find ourselves asking is; is an individuals moral fiber determined at conception or is it molded by their experiences? The nature verses nurture argument is as old as curiosity. If someone has horrific and ghastly acts committed against them, does it then excuse them in perpetuating the cycle? Probably not, but if not, then does it at least make you consider them in a different light? These are the questions you will need to ask yourself when considering the rough life and times of one of the most notorious female serial killers in history...
This week's Odd News segment is filled with weirdness, melancholic atmosphere, and downright sickening content. In honor of woman's month, learn about the bizarre case of a woman who had a strange side effect attached to her monthly mensuration. Learn one of our own guests bizarre techniques to combat the monthly purge. Learn the story of a man in Japan whose wife went missing after a devistating tsunami. He's been searching for her for decades without fail, what are the odds he might ever see her again? And lastly, the sickest headline of them all: The Vile Vet.
At a young and impressionable age we look to our parents to guide us though the early years. To help us get our footing and understand right from wrong, and appropriate from inappropriate. But during those critical developmental years, there are others that also have a profound impact on us. A picture box that is the potential gateway to anything and everything: Television. This week we take a look at those who chose to integrate themselves into careers that, by default, entangled them with a younger and naive audience. Was it simply because they enjoyed being around children? Or do their choices have a more nefarious reasoning behind them?
As promised, this week we bring you back to the place where dreams die and hope fades away. Where a rancid evil lurks with reckless abandon and sinister motive. If you enjoyed our Extra Evil episode "Going to Hell" from a few months ago, then buckle up and find you best flame retardant garments, because this week we are headed back. This trip promises to be just as painful and horrifying as the first. Get ready to BURN IN HELL...
