Ep. 20 The Dark History & Secrets of The Wizard of Oz | Paranormal Aftermath



“if we walk far enough, says dorothy”

“we shall sometime come to someplace….”

Whether it was singing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” or following our own Yellow Brick Road, THE WIZARD OF OZ  is still referenced with great affection to this day. It’s hard to imagine that filming this seminal film was anything but happy and magical, and yet, sadly, it seems there was more than one dark moment during this film’s production back in the late 1930s.

Ever since it premiered back in 1939, rumors have circulated about the making of the film Including the fate of the first Tin Man and a possible suicide.Image result for the haunted wizard of oz

EP. 19 The Winchester Mystery House | Sarah Winchester



In 1886 an eccentric woman named Sarah Winchester travelled from New Haven, Connecticut to San Jose , California, to start a new life. She purchased a small eight-room farmhouse and started a small renovation project that would take 36 years and $5.5 million, only stopping when she passed away in 1922.

Legend has it that she was led by spirits  to California to build a home that would appease the spirits of the victims who were killed by the Winchester Rifle.  The only catch, if she continued building, she would live. Stop and she would die.

 

What clues reside within the home’s walls and windows, Was Sarah Winchester controlled by the spirits of dead to build such a palatial home?  And do those spirits haunt the Winchester mystery house?


EP. 18 The Casting Curse of James Dean, Natalie Woods, Sal Mineo & Nick Adams | Rebel Without A Cause



The Rebel Without A Cause Casting Curse

Hollywood stars may seem larger than life, but of course, they are just as vulnerable to life’s tragedies, including the chance of dying at a young age.  Their celebrity was sometimes brief, sometimes felt for decades. What they had in common was a death that came too soon.

BUT SOMEHOW THEY ALWAYS COME back ….

James Dean once said, “dream as if you’ll live forever; live as if you’ll die today.”

Rebel w/o a cause was a classic film detailing the sordid adventures of a youth struggling with identity and clashing generational attitudes is widely regarded as one of the most significant movies in film history.

One month before the release of Rebel Without a Cause, James Dean,  was killed in a head-on collision while driving his Porsche 550 Spyder, the same vehicle he drove while shooting Rebel.  It was Dean’s premature death that cast a shadow over the film but it was the incredibly emotional and volatile behavior that occurred on set and the horrific death of the lead actor that many have blamed for the curse that followed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Co-Stars Sal Mineo, Nick Adams and Natalie Wood also suffered horrific and premature deaths, Sal being stabbed to death outside his apartment, Nick Adams’ mysterious suicide and Natalie drowning accidentally after falling off her yacht.

EP. 12 Marilyn Monroe, PT. 2 The True Crime & Paranormal Aftermath of Hollywood’s Lady of Sorrow



The finale of our Season 1 and PT.2 series of The True Crime and Paranormal aftermath of Marilyn Monroe.

When movie goddess Marilyn Monroe’s naked body was found on her bed at her Hollywood home, it was assumed she had killed herself by consuming an insane amount of barbiturates .  Devastated by tangled affairs with American President John F Kennedy and brother Bobby, the 36-year-old star of The Seven Year Itch and Some Like It Hot was said to have overdosed on sleeping pills.  But so many things didn’t add up that conspiracy theories began immediately.  Who wanted her killed?  The Kennedy Brothers?  The CIA? The Mafia? Paul Lawson with the aide of Eunice Murray & Dr. Greenson?

We also go into her paranormal aftermath.  There are claims that she is still seen and felt at The Roosevelt Hotel, The Cal Neva Hotel & Casino & her Brentwood home.  What about her old flame Bobby Kennedy?  Does he still walk around the area where he was gunned down here in L.A.

 

 


Ep.5 Our Job is Haunted by the Ghost of Charlie Chaplin!?!?!



Life is lived large in Los Angeles, ever since the orange groves of an arid hamlet called Hollywood gave way to the dream factories. In the early 20th Century, the actors and musicians who gravitated there wasted no time in taking their places.  One of those actors was Charly Chaplin, bldg his first studio in the heart of the residential section of Hollywood at La Brea Avenue and naming it The Chalie Chaplin Studios.   

 

Across from those studios is where Brice and I work, an acting academy.   Ever since the school moved to that location there were strange stories of a man in a hat roaming on the grounds after hours and around the theater.  Later, a dormitory had taken over an old apartment complex next door to house new students.   However, more unusual stories were circulating around campus of a little girl roaming the halls of the second floor of the dorm and sighting of a shadow man roaming around the building.  Who is the little girl roaming the 2nd floor of the dorms and who is this shadow man?  Is it Charlie Chaplin or something a little more sinister.  Stay tuned!

The True Crime and Paranormal Aftermath of The Sharon Tate & Manson Family Murders Ep.1



 

On the night of August 9, 1969, film actress, Sharon Tate (who was 8 months pregnant), Jay Sebring, Abigail Folger and Wojciech Frykowski were brutally murdered at the hands of the members of the Manson Family.   Linda Kasabian was sent by Manson with three other members of his Family – Tex Watson, Susan Atkins and Patricia “Katie” Krenwinkel – to break into Tate’s home and “destroy everyone inside.”  This was the beginning of what Charles Manson called “helter skelter”.  To follow right after the Tate murders was the murder of Leno and Rosemary LaBianco.

On August 16, the sheriff’s office raided Spahn Ranch and arrested Manson and 25 others, as “suspects in a major auto theft ring”. Weapons were seized, but, because the warrant had been misdated, the group was released a few days later.  On December 1, 1969, acting on the information from these sources, LAPD announced warrants for the arrest of Watson, Krenwinkel, and Kasabian in the Tate case; the suspects’ involvement in the LaBianca murders was noted. Manson and Atkins, already in custody.

THE PARANORMAL ASSOCIATION

It is said that after a violent crime or a traumatic event, an energy is left behind, absorbed into the surroundings as a reminder of what occurred.  In certain cases, its usually the spirits of those who haven’t moved on. In the case of David Oman, that energy has made its way past his front door.   In 1998, David Oman and his father purchase property just several hundred ft away from the property where the Sharon Tate murders had taken place.   In 2002, David Oman’s home is completed after being built and right after he moves into his dream home, he immediately experiences activity.  David Oman believes to be in communication with the spirits of Sharon Tate, Abigail Folger, Jay Sebring and Wojciech Frykowski.   However, it turns out that his house is smack dab in the middle of a geo magnetic grid causing his location to be vulnerable to energy; a vortex.  To add more salt to the wound, the land was the setting of a major war between native americans and early Californian settlers, to which, makes his home built over an indian burial ground.  Major poltergeist vibes.

His home is considered to be “The Disneyland of the Dead” where scientists, paranormal investigation crews and even skeptics have been invited to investigate or spend the night.   You can even schedule a tour or make reservations for a private event at his home.  David has even gone as far as to write and produce a movie inspired by true events and his personal experiences, House at the End of the Drive.  Below is the link to his website with more information and video footage of his investigations.
