OTR Story – The Dream (Boris Karloff)

Our story on this episode of The Horror Express comes from the series Lights Out and stars the great Boris Karloff as a mad man on trial for murder. Lights Out was created by Wyllis Cooper and then eventually taken over by Arch Oboler. It aired on different networks, at various times, from 1934 to 1947 and the series eventually made the transition to television. Lights Out was one of the earliest radio horror programs, predating even Suspense and Inner Sanctum. The creepy tale is called The Dream and first aired April 23, 1938.

HE #16 – Haunted Dolls Two

Welcome to the 16th episode of the Horror Express. In this program Jason and I revisit Haunted Dolls. This time we have stories, questions and comments all sent in by you guys. The OTR story for this show is a creepy tale about shadow people that should send a chill or two through your body.  So, please join us for this train ride into the unknown.

Pictured below are the two dolls Jason, during the podcast, labeled as having energy attached. He does not called them haunted, but he doesn’t say that they aren’t. I can say that one called Betsy has creeped me out for years and I have always thought she had a strange vibe. Cracked face is not the real name of the second doll, that would be Megan.

Topic – Haunted Dolls Part 2

A haunted doll is a handmade or manufactured doll or stuffed animal that is reported to be cursed or possessed in some way. The earliest report of a haunted doll goes back to Ancient Egypt. The enemies of Ramses III attempted to use wax images of his likeness to bring about his death. The dolls used in this ritual were said to be living and would curse anyone who bore their resemblance.

Bigfoot is an ape-human type creature that many believe lives mostly in forests in the Pacific Northwest region of the North American continent. He is also often referred to as Sasquatch. He is often described as a large and hairy, resembling a half-man, half-ape creature in folklore and myths. Many of those who have reported seeing Bigfoot describe him with large eyes, a low-set forehead, large brow-ridge, and having enormous footprints. He is believed to be upwards of 500 pounds and anywhere from 6 to 8 feet tall. He is also reported to be rather smelly, and he is mainly nocturnal.

Vampires Revisited:

We talked about Vampires back on Episode #3 of The Horror Express. Jason and I both thought there was something missing in that show and that was someone who knew all about them. Enter Douglas Robinson from Silently Publishing who has written a series of fictional books about the REAL Vampires that exist today.

The Silently Series Storyline is about vampyric blood-drinking people. When we meet Majken she has come to the city of Trenton seeking a new life. She meets Thomas, a young college student, but Thomas does not know who or what his girlfriend really is. Another vampyric person has come to Trenton: a killer. His name is John. Thomas is exposed to blood during a fight to save his life and he becomes vampyric also. The story is about their relationship in the modern-day and also takes us back historically and reveals  Majken’s life from the early eighteenth century.

Curses

A curse is any expressed wish that some form of adversity or misfortune will befall or attach to an entity, person, place or object. In particular, “curse” may refer to such a wish or pronouncement made effective by a supernatural or spiritual power by magic or witchcraft. A curse can also be called a hex or a jinx. In many belief systems, the curse itself (or accompanying ritual) is considered to have some causative force in the result. To reverse or eliminate a curse is sometimes called “removal” or “breaking”, and is often believed to require elaborate rituals or prayers.

Topic – The Bermuda Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle is a mythical area found in the Atlantic Ocean. Its boundaries are set by Miami, Bermuda and Puerto Rico. Many unexplainable events have occurred in this region.

Louisa is here to tell stories and talk about her new book, Sightseeing in the Undiscovered Country: Tales Retold by a Psychic Bystander. You can read more about Louisa here.

Our old time radio story for this trip comes from the pen of Jack London. Now, we know that London is not known for the scary stuff. However, this one is an exception. It is story of what it could be like if you got lost in the snowy tundra of the north. It comes from the OTR series, Sleep No More and its titled, To Build a Fire. It first aired on February 27, 1957.
