Things Got Spooky FOR REAL During Last Night’s #Brainwaves Episode 55

Published

on

Brainwaves Dark Waters

Last night on Brainwaves: Horror and Paranormal Talk Radio, our guest was paranormal personality Dark Waters. From the get-go the night was weird. I ate dinner and became immediately ill. Was in the bathroom three times and was sweating profusely. At one point I was like, “Man, I hope I’m okay enough to do the show.” Thankfully, everything settled down in time.

Then I couldn’t get my broadcasting software to work. Something I’ve done dozens of times. It was nearly airtime, and I had to shut everything down and restart. During this time both my station manager, TJ, and co-host, Joe Knetter, couldn’t get Skype to work on their end no matter what they tried. Joe ended up finally getting on about 5 minutes into the show.

Finally we were off, and it was business as usual (except for Joe and Barkan’s obsession with knuckles, but that’s another story). At 9:05 pm Dark Waters came on, and we started discussing a multitude of things. You can check out the entire Episode 55 here. During the call Waters explained that sometimes when he’s talking with people on the phone, he can sense when it is time to stop. Some… things apparently can travel when spoken about. Sort of like when you pay too much attention to something that you shouldn’t, you end up fueling it even more. But the show went off smoothly, and we all had a good time.

During it, though, one of our listeners, Andrew Challand, tweeted, “Street light in front of my house just went out. RIP me. Bout to get eaten by dogman. I’m honestly a little creep’d out. The only reason that thing has ever gone out in 30 years is due to storms.” Last night his weather was clear.

After I wrapped up, I turned to Deb to get a reaction from her about the show as I always do. She said it was great, but… she thought she had seen “something” float by out of the corner of her eye. Here’s what happened in her words:

“So, the interview was wrapping up, and I was brushing my teeth, listening to the end of Dark Waters’ story about his tense – and intense – encounter with a group of dogmen. The hairs on my neck started standing up, and one of our cats – a black & white one (mostly white) – jumped up on the sink in front of me to drink some water from the faucet. Then, a few seconds later, just out of my peripheral vision, I could have sworn she walked by behind me. And then a white shape kind up floated up. I wasn’t super scared, just kind of like, “Whoa… that was fucking weird.”

We didn’t give it too much thought afterwards and chalked it up to being just residual spooky after listening to Waters spin some truly at times terrifying yarns. However, when I finally got to sleep, I ended up having nightmares the entire time. Nothing particularly scary, more on the side of finding myself in one really sad situation after the other. I woke up today restless and feeling very melancholy.

To top things off, I then got this text from Joe: “Hey man. Any weird shit happen to you last night? I saw shadows in my room and Sarah woke up with scratches all over her back.” I’ll let him further elaborate…

I’ve been having trouble sleeping lately, which is common for me,” said Joe. “I go through bouts of insomnia often. I was lying in bed around 3:00 AM or so trying to relax when I saw movement out of the corner of my eye. I looked over to the dark corner by my bedroom door and saw a shadow move from that corner to the wall next to me before disappearing. The shadows are things I’ve seen before when we lived in a house by a cemetery. I’ve also seen them at Waverly Hills when we spent the night there. I wasn’t going to share it with Sarah [French] but after she told me about the scratches I figured I had to. Which is why we asked you if anything weird happened. I didn’t expect you to say yes.

I woke up in the middle of the night feeling like my back was on fire,” said French. “It was weird. I thought my shirt was irritating my skin. I took my shirt off and went back to sleep. it was about 3:00 AM. This morning I noticed scratches on my back. They are very painful. I certainly can’t explain it.

Sarah Scratches

It should be noted that Sarah took part in a ghost hunting pilot a few days before and captured some weird shit in photos (we can’t share them at the present time). We talked about the photos on the air, though, if you want to learn more.

I told our station manager, TJ, everything this morning, and he said, “Funny you say that… Last night out of the corner of my eye, I saw something move in the hallway.

And more listeners have come forward on social media…

Short version, woke power was out checked outside came in and EVERYTHING in the house was on. Door was wide open heard and saw trash fall.” – Jennifer Pearl on Twitter.

I was fine until a certain story [and] then I felt like I wasn’t alone, although no one else was here with me. It felt like something touched me on my shoulder more than once. I [too] had nightmares last night. A woman was chasing me through the woods [and] I woke up just as she got closer but kept having this dream.” – Tammy Miller on Twitter.

Could not sleep last night. Kept seeing stuff to the right of me in bed, out of the corner of my eye. No joke.” – David Hahn on Facebook.

Now I’m not saying that any of this, except for the scratches, is anything more than just us spooking ourselves. It could all very well be some weird coincidence and we’re playing a scary game of connect the dots. It does make you wonder, though. So tell us… anything happen to you while listening to this particular episode? Are we all just nuts?

Contact us @brainwavesradio on Twitter and Brainwaves on Facebook to let us know.

The jury is still out.

The Strangers: Prey at Night Set Visit Part 2: Screams and Flames

Published

on

[SPOILERS] As mentioned in our earlier set visit story, The Strangers: Prey at Night maintains the same feeling of isolation as the original. Even though a full-fledged production was going on in Gatlin Lake Getaway, it is hard to shake that feeling of being totally alone once wandering away from the set lighting. The dark surround woods start to close in and threaten to swallow any who stray too close to the tree line. Then the silence is broken as a beat-up 1972 Ford Ranger’s engine revs and a scream slices through the night.

Back on the lit street, the familiar looking truck has collided head-on with the side Wagner County Sheriff’s SUV. At the driver’s seat of the Ford is a man sporting a white cloth bag as a mask. The Bagman has returned. His appearance has not changed. The empty sockets of the mask still glare ominously and the painted smile poorly hides the stranger’s murderous intent.

An air of frustration surrounds the Bagman as he attempts to free the truck from the SUV. In vain, the Ford revs and struggles to no avail. Bad news for him, but good news for whomever the Bagman was pursuing. The law enforcement vehicle, with its lights flashing, had been driven by a young woman decked out in a black Ramones t-shirt and blood-splattered jeans. Her hair is jet black. The woman’s skin is streaked with dark blood and open slash wounds. The dark punk eye makeup is running, but the wearer is not.

It is obvious that this woman has been through a lot as she limps from the wreck. The context of her current state is not clear, but the shrieking that emanates from her as she produces a lighter and throws it to the ground under the collided vehicles speaks volumes. It can only be assumed that she has been chased, slashed, and emotionally beaten for hours. The scream is packed with emotions from fear to outright spite and rage. It is so powerful, in fact, that the crew members uttered stunned laudations.

As the gasoline ignites, the flames climb and spread of the mangled metal of the two collided vehicles. The Ford’s engine still violently revs as the Bagman emotionlessly tries to break free. The young woman is slowly backing away, unaware of the chain reaction occurring. The darkness of 1 AM is broken by two giant fireballs that erupt, engulfing the metal mayhem in the middle of the street. The surroundings fall silent, cut is called and the crew erupts in exclamations at the awesome spectacle.

This powerful moment was brought to us by Bailee Madison (Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark).

The Strangers: Prey at Night was now on its twenty-second day of shooting and only eight more days remained. The cast and crew are well accustomed to their routines and the late night shoots have become second nature. When asked if the constant schedule of night shoots had been difficult, Madison elicited some of the virtues that the darkness has to offer, “There’s something very vulnerable about night shoots. You are emotionally in a different place when you’re awake and rested in the daytime. I think for something traumatic like this, you need to be able to access different emotions; at night you’re a lot more capable.”

At this point in production, Bailee’s character has seen a lot of action. A heavy amount of blood adorns the actor’s arms and a thick clotting mass of the red stuff covers most of her forehead. Keeping track of that damage for continuity from day to day looks like a grueling task, and makeup department head Jodi Byrne dropped some details about the process, “We have continuity photos and we take pictures of Bailee constantly throughout the day … We have to determine which takes are actually going to be used in the film and we move from that point.”

Synopsis:
A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive..
