“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. 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.14 The Buddhafield Cult, The True Crime & Paranormal Aftermath



Author, Joris Karl Huysmans once stated,

“Worshiping the Devil is no more insane than worshiping God…It is precisely at the moment when positivism is at its high-water mark that mysticism stirs into life and the follies of occultism begin.”

In 1985, recent film-school graduate Will Allen found what appeared to be an exciting community in LA. While searching for the meaning of life and community, Allen was lured by a charismatic South American-born guru known as Michel. With little hesitation, he joined Buddhafield, a group where love and enlightenment flowed in abundance.

It wasn’t until 22 years later that Allen realized he belonged to a cult.  Allen’s film, Holy Hell tells his tale and the secrets of The Buddhafield along with its leader.

The Paranormal aftermath, actor, singer, songwriter, and director Jared Leto was one of the producers of Holy Hell.  While visiting the ghosts of Buddahfield’s past Jared was dealing with supposed ghosts of his new home in Laurel Canyon.

So ditch the flavor aid, grab a smoothie and slip into you favorite speedos, this is the True Crime and Paranormal aftermath of The Buddhafield Cult.

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.
