Headless SLS Images Appear In The Gasp Menagerie

The Gasp Menagerie

SLS technology is a new tool in paranormal investigation.  Most people are familiar with it from Microsoft’s failed accessory the Kinect.  It emits a field of infrared dots, uses two night-vision cameras to track those dots, and then maps things within the field of vision based on how those dots appear.  Many saw the effect in action in Paranormal Activity 4, where the night-vision camera caught sight of the entity Toby that was invisible to the naked eye.

SLS cameras used for paranormal investigation work a little differently, but on the same theory: the belief is they can spot figures moving that might not be visible with the naked eye.  As the Kinect was designed to track human movement, the SLS spots humanoid figures and maps them out as “stick people” moving within the gray and green video image.  A typical paranormal SLS image would have a shot of a space with nobody in it, only to suddenly have a stick figure appear and move about without any visual evidence of a solid, real person in the shot.

David Weatherly of the Society of the Supernatural did an investigation into the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Museum in Panama City, FL recently and claims to have observed many paranormal events.  Disembodied voices, knocks, and footsteps are some of the things he and his team observed.

The most compelling evidence he collected was from an SLS device when they were investigating an “executioner’s table” in the tribal area.  A hand-carved table reportedly used for beheading people, supposedly stained with blood, is in the shot with someone sitting at it.  While filming, a chaotic stick figure appears.  While it’s a little hard to make out, the figure appears to splay across the table and, in the final flash, appears to no longer have a head.

The video is below.  As I said, it’s hard to make out.  Once I watched a few more traditional SLS videos online, I had a better understanding of what I was looking at, so you may want to do the same.

Is this evidence of a spirit re-enacting its final moments of life on the table?  Is the SLS camera an accurate tool for discovering and recording spirits around us?  What do you think?

Have a weird story? Potential evidence of the supernatural, or at least something hard to explain? Spot any creepy critters out there roaming the wilds? LET ME KNOW! I’d love to talk about it and possibly write it up right here in the Gasp Menagerie. You’ll get appropriate credit, of course, and everyone else will get fresh creepy (as opposed to fresh Creepy, which, trust me… nobody wants that) to enjoy. As always, I can be found at mrdark@dreadcentral.com. Now get out there, find some weird, and let’s get this party started.

Netflix’s The Cloverfield Paradox Scored 2.8 Million Viewers in First Three Days

Published

on

A few weeks back we brought you a news story in which Netflix shelled out a whopping $50 million for the streaming rights to The Cloverfield Paradox.

If you are like me, then you’ve been wondering how that investment is paying out for the streaming giant in the wake of the resounding “thud” the film made after it hit late on Super Bowl Sunday.

Well, it seems the movie did pretty good… but nothing special (which is the general consensus to the film itself) and scored 2.8 million viewers in the first 3 days of release.

These numbers come to us from Variety, who reports that, while 2.8 million is no small number, when compared to the 11 million viewers that David Ayers’ Bright starring Will Smith pulled in late last year, The Cloverfield Paradox pales in comparison. But is it fair to compare The Cloverfield Paradox to Bright? Shrugs.

What do you think? Let us know below!

The film is directed by Julius Onah from a screenplay by Oren Uziel and Doug Jung and stars David Oyelowo, Ziyi Zhang, Elizabeth Debicki, Daniel Brühl, and Chris O’Dowd.

The film is now streaming on Netflix.

Synopsis:

Astronauts must fight for their lives after making a terrifying discovery in outer space.

Toy Fair 2018: Funko’s Savage World Turns Horror Icons Into Masters of the Universe Characters

Published

on

Overview

What would happen if classic horror icons existed within the world of the Masters of the Universe franchise? That’s a question Funko have answered with their new ‘Savage World’ line of action figures, which depicts horror characters including Leatherface, Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and Pinhead as they would look had they been birthed into the world of Castle Grayskull alongside He-Man and Skeletor. Funko have given us some pretty weird shit over the years, but this is on a whole other level.

Thanks to Bloody Disgusting, Preternia, Popvinyls.com, and the Twitter account @FakeEyes22, we are able to share some images of these testosterone-fueled slasher figures, which were on display at the New York Toy Fair. There’s currently no word on when these musclebound monstrosities will be hitting stores, but I’m willing to bet that one look at the gallery below will instantly have you counting your change.

Death Confirmed to Be Part of Bill & Ted 3

Published

on

Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal introduced the world to a version of death that has since become iconic. A dark force, the Grim Reaper is willing to give people a chance to reclaim their souls should they best it in a game. While this incarnation is truly magnificent, I believe that many people will recognize the parody version that William Sadler brought to life in Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, the 1991 sequel that saw Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves’ characters die and face the awkward spirit.

Nearly three decades later, fans of the Bill & Ted series are awaiting a third film, which has been known to be in the works for quite a while. Dubbed Bill & Ted Face the Music, it’s been written by Ed Solomon (Men in Black), who recently took to Twitter to confirm that the scythe-wielding ghoul is in the film and that he hopes William Sadler reprises the role! Solomon is also the man responsible for writing the first two films as well as the animated series “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventures” and the 1991 video game Bill & Ted’s Excellent Video Game Adventure.

At this point, it’s all just speculation as to if a third film will ever be made. However, nearly every single party involved is ready to make this a reality, so all it needs is a studio to pony up the money!
