San Diego Comic-Con 2013: Spend Your Nights in a REAL Haunted House With Dread Central and the San Diego Ghost Hunters

Every year at SDCC Dread Central does something cool. This year we are outdoing ourselves. If you're going to be in town, we have something insanely cool for you to check out. A once in a lifetime chance. Read on!

The Seen and The Unseen - Zombie Number Zero Found in Britain? The Plague Begins!

The Seen and The Unseen is now sounding the alarm! We’ve begun sharpening our axes, loading our guns, and taking practice swings with our baseball bat. If you read this column (if you don’t, why not? Don’t you like us?), we want you to be prepared!

The Seen and The Unseen - The Loch Ness Monster: When Science Goes Stupid

At Dread Central we're all for science. It’s given us lots of cool things--for example, those globe thingies that turn static electricity into cool blue lightning bolts when you touch the glass. Seriously, don’t you love pretending you’re a powerful wizard?

The Seen and The Unseen - Church Sued for Not Properly Exorcising Stinking Demons

Stop blaming the dog for your bad gas; blame demons! I thought I’d heard everything in the “I’ll sue you” dept., but El Jefe-in-Charge of Dread Central (he makes me call him that, really) sent this article about a man suing the Orthodox Church for not performing a proper exorcism.

The Seen and The Unseen - Man Discovers Fossilized Bigfoot Head

Readers of the Seen and The Unseen know that I love the “Squatch.” How can you not? Squatches are an icon for all things mysterious and unexplained. In America Bigfoot is our biggest collective “folklore” story that continues to grow.

The Seen and The Unseen - There Was a Ghost in the Outfield, Coach! Seriously!

I love the game of baseball and tried to play as a kid. Sadly, I didn’t play well, and my short-lived Little League career ended after my first year. Imagine a scared kid shutting his eyes when he swung, the ball popping up to hit him in the face, and him tripping over his own feet.

The Seen and The Unseen - Egyptian Statue Displays Deep-Seated Male Tendencies

Someone once told me that guys just want a few simple things: a warm woman, warm food, good beer and a warm bed. We get those things, we’re usually pretty happy.

The Seen and The Unseen - Afraid of the End of the World? Move to Kansas!

Having just seen This Is the End, the new Seth Rogen and Co. movie, the end of the world is on my mind. Everyone from scientists to raving right/left wing nuts living out on the commune think something is going to happen. And, they believe, it’s not going to be pretty.

The Seen and The Unseen - Nessie Tourism Hooligans Ready to Rumble!

You’ve heard of football louts, baseball bums and soccer hooligans disrupting local bars. It’s a pretty common thing in the sports world. The real question is: Will we soon see the worst of the lot, Nessie Lover Nobs?

The Seen and the Unseen - On a Break From Snooki The Jersey Devil Hides Out in Oklahoma

The Jersey Devil is one of the scariest American paranormal tales. The Seen and The Unseen drove through the Pine Barrens of Jersey, the Devil’s supposed hangout, last summer; and let us tell you, it lives up to its creepy reputation.

The Seen and The Unseen: China Has the Body of an Alien on Ice

First our currency and now our conspiracy theories? Come on, Chinese, leave us something in the world already! Americans are a proud group of people. We invented Freedom (Dread Central does not condone this historical research), the Hot Dog and the Jersey Shore.

The Seen and The Unseen - Gas Too Expensive? Pay with a Deer Head!

In the olden days, people didn’t use money. You went out, shot animals and took them to the local trading post (about 15 miles away). With one deer head, you could get salt, corn meal and a jug of whiskey for those long, lonely nights in the woods (Dread Central does not endorse this historical research).

The Seen and The Unseen: Bigfoot Vacations in Florida

As a kid I wasn’t allowed to watch movies like Friday the 13th. I’m glad for this parental oversight because it forced me to read about true life mysteries. One of my favorites is Bigfoot. I can’t tell you how many nights I spent reading Bigfoot stories and jumping at every noise.
