Dracula & Vlad the Impaler

In the 15th century, conflicts between the Ottoman Empire and neighboring Wallachia (wall-ache-ia) rocked Eastern Europe. The Wallachian Army was lead by Vlad Tepes, whose harrowing tactics gave him the nickname Vlad the Impaler. But there was another name he went by, one that has become ingrained in our popular culture. That name was Dracula. This is Based on a True Crime.

Winchester (House)

Following the death of her husband, the heiress to the Winchester Rifle fortune suddenly moved west and began constructing on a sprawling, seven-story mansion, filled with doors and stairs that led nowhere. Although never confirmed, rumors spread that the mansion was being built continuously to appease the spirits of people killed by Winchester rifles, a story which infiltrated the public consciousness and became the inspiration for the 2018 movie “Winchester".

Urban Legend(s)

Urban legends are defined as lurid stories that are circulated as true, often with the teller claiming that it happened to a friend of a friend, and with each tale taking on regional specificities. Still, as the saying goes, at the heart of every legend there is a grain of truth. Join us as we discuss these grains of truth followed by a chat about the film URBAN LEGEND.

Poisoned Candy Myths, Facts and Candyman

Razor blades hidden in candy apples. Needles in snicker bars. Cyanide in pixy stix. Some of these things never happen on Halloween. And some did. While poisoned Halloween candy may have started out as an urban legend, it’s prevalence has increasingly lead to copycat crimes. Join us as we celebrate Halfway to Halloween month with a discussion of poison candy, Candyman and more!

Poisoned Candy Myths, Facts and Candyman

The Entity & Doris Bither

In the summer of 1974, Dr. Barry Taff, a now a renowned parapsychologist, was working as a research associate in UCLA's parapsychology laboratory. He and an associate, Kerry Gaynor, were overheard discussing the paranormal in a local bookstore by woman in her mid-thirties, and she approached them with a story about her house being haunted. She didn’t give them many details, but invited them to visit the home for themselves: a small bungalow located in Culver City, California. The woman was Doris Bither, and it wasn’t until after Taff and Gaynor arrived at the house that they got the full story from Doris about the nature of these paranormal occurrences: since moving into the house, on almost a nightly basis, Doris was being violently attacked and raped by three nameless, shapeless, entities. In 1982, her story was adapted by Frank De Felitta into the film 'THE ENTITY', directed by Sidney J. Furie and starring Barbara Hershey and Ron Silver.

Ted Bundy and Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

The heinous crimes of Ted Bundy captured a nation as he stood trial for murder in Florida. At the time, few knew his true body count, in a series of murders that spanned multiple states on the other side of the country. In the years since, his seemingly incongruent demeanor and reputation, earned or not, as a smart and charming killer has inspired multiple movie adaptations, the most recent of which stars none other than Zac Efron in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.

The Exorcist

It's our Exorcist Halloween Special! In the Spring of 1949, a 14-year-old boy began exhibiting signs of demonic possession after the death of his aunt. Following a harrowing exorcism, the boy, known only as Roland Doe, was cured. Local news stories about the exorcism caught the eye of William Peter Blatty, inspiring his 1971 novel “The Exorcist”. He also wrote the screenplay that became the 1973 film, directed by William Friedkin. This is Based on a True Crime. Sources: Is The Exorcist based on a true story?
