Three holiday true crime and ghost tours are scheduled for December. Photo: Facebook Screengrab The Aztec Theater Built before The Great Depression, the theater was a place where San Antonians would catch glamorous shows and the first "talkies." The venue has undergone refurbishments throughout its long history, but after its latest revamp in February 2014 staff started reporting weird sights and sounds -- footsteps, voices and shadows getting a view of the stage from the top seats. The Russell Rush Haunted Tour did not find any fatalities to have taken place at the Aztec, but a bombing happened in the 1920s, burning six people when a homemade device was thrown from the balcony into the audience below. Rusell Rush and his group … [Read more...] about Holiday true crime and ghost tours scheduled next month

atouristlife, Jrrny Published 3:10 pm, Monday, April 23, 2018 Image 1of/1 CaptionClose Image 1 of 1 Seattle, WA, USA for Ghost Tour and More 1 / 1 Back to Gallery We made the most of our time in Seattle. Staying at the Warwick made getting around town very easy both walking and taking the bus. There are a few things that are a must see. If you walk a few blocks you can take the Rail to the Space Needle and also see the Seattle Music project. Be sure to go early in the morning to be able to fit both in before closing time. Another place to visit is the Famous Pikes Market and stop to see the Flying fish. A great way to learn about the area is a walking tour. We chose a foodie walking tour that took us around the city and fed us enough for a quick lunch. At the end of the tour you get a few discount vouchers for various places to eat or shop. My other Favorite way to see the city is a Ghost Tour. Private Eye Ghost Tours with Jake are … [Read more...] about Seattle, WA, USA for Ghost Tour and More
When Laurie and Chuck Ness head downtown every Saturday night of the summer, they have a way of standing out. It could be the swish of Laurie’s hoop skirt and bonnet, or the dapper hat worn by her husband as a group gathers around them next to the pink-hued Sioux quartzite Pipestone County Museum building. Their Civil War-era attire seems fitting for the weekly Ghost Walks, started six years ago to raise money for the town of Pipestone’s Civil War Days. Their somber black costumes also set the mood for the eerie stories they tell during these walks. Laurie Ness, who is also the mayor of Pipestone, started the tours with 32 ghost stories collected from residents and the county museum. “We now have well over 250 stories and three people telling them,” she says.

IN 2010, Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman's ruthlessly efficient horror anthology Ghost Stories scared audiences out of their seats at Liverpool Playhouse before transferring to London.The ingenious marketing for the play, which strongly advised "those of a nervous disposition to think very seriously before attending", incorporated night-vision footage of ticket holders cowering behind coats and whimpering in the dark.Sitting in the auditorium was an electrifying experience – you could feel the hairs standing up on the back of everyone's neck as primal fears were ruthlessly exploited on the stage for maximum nail-biting impact.The production deservedly became a word-of-mouth sensation, leading to two separate year-long stints in the West End and a tour of Australia.The big screen adaptation of Ghost Stories, written and directed by Dyson and Nyman, doesn't come close to replicating the trickles of sweat of the stage version but is, nevertheless, a well-crafted exercise in smoke and … [Read more...] about Film review: Scares in short supply in screen version of hit spooky play Ghost Stories
