HYSTERIA HIGH (a.k.a the “High School from Hell”) is a Genre-Bending Combination of Horror & True Crime

Journalist Jeff Maysh (The Murder House) recently published a story that has lifted the lid on one of America’s most chilling paranormal events. “Hysteria High” is an in-depth investigation into a mass demonic possession at the Miami Aerospace Academy, a.k.a the “High School from Hell” – that will pique the interest of any horror fan. 

Forty years ago this week, a riot broke out at the Miami school where hundreds of screaming students claimed they were possessed by evil spirits. It has been described by scholars as “one of the most bizarre chapters in the history of American education.” Doors were snapped from their hinges and dozens were injured. The article, featuring interviews with former staff and students, reveals a school overwhelmed with black magic, murderers, and even a Nazi teacher.

Maysh’s story is enhanced by the chilling concept art at the top of the article from Butcher Billy (Black Mirror, Stranger Things, Dawn of the Dead). Read the story in its entirety over at Medium, HERE
