“HIGHGATE VAMPIRE: HORROR OF THE DEAD” and 9 More Terrifying True Stories! #WeirdDarkness

IN THIS EPISODE: Did a vampire stalk London’s Highgate cemetery in the 1970s? (Highgate Vampire: The Horror of the Dead) *** He was alone at home when firemen were called. The entire house was blazing… except for one room. The room that contained the corpse of J. Temple Thurston. (The Mysterious Death of J. Temple Thurston) *** A ghostly spirit brings comfort to a dying man’s grandchild. (A Comforting Nurse) *** Death comes to us all, but today children are shielded from the reality of death – only the stylized version they see in television and film. But years ago, when there was a death, it was a family affair – everyone of all ages participated in the funeral and grieving process. And some people coped with their grief by being artistic – such as writing a weird song called “The Hearse Song”. *** We all know people who love nature and the outdoors. Some will even have their own gardens and will talk to the flowers and plants, thinking it will help them thrive. But how would you react when you are sure the plants are talking back to you? (The Girl Who Talks To Trees) *** Mitchell Quy watched while the police looked for his missing wife; he even joined the search himself. No one ever expected that Mitchell was the one who had killed her. (He Murdered His Wife – Then Pretended To Look For Her) *** In 1986, the Tallmanns moved into what they thought was the ideal family home. They couldn’t have been more wrong. (Sharing Bunk Beds With Evil) *** A Weirdo family member shares how he has been stalked by a terrifying entity for many years. (The Sinister Caprine Creature) *** Not even the serial killer Dennis Nilsen himself can say exactly how many people he murdered. There were just too many. (Britain’s Kindly Killer) *** How is it possible for a man as powerful and prominent as a Supreme Court judge to disappear forever? It happened to the Big Apple’s Justice Joseph F. Crater.
