Were you a fan of The Paranormal Diaries: Clophill (review)? Love the history behind true life hauntings? Then this latest book is for you!
A lot of research into Clophill was done during production of the film, and the filmmakers got so into the whole occult backdrop of Clophill that a 200-page book about the black magic outbreak of the 1960s and 70s is now available!
The book (of the same name) has just been released on Amazon Kindle (order below) across the world for Halloween, and a paperback edition will be out December 1st!
The ruined Old St. Mary’s Church in Clophill, Bedfordshire, has an enormous reputation for the occult and paranormal.
In 1963 graves were desecrated and a skull was impaled on a spike inside the church. Bones were found arranged on a makeshift altar, along with the remains of a cockerel in the celebration of a black mass. The incident made headlines across the world and put the fear of God into the local community. A spate of similar incidents followed in the area with cattle found mutilated, further tombs looted, and macabre ceremonies performed up at the church. The incidents gave rise to a huge black magic outbreak across the country.
Sinister events have continued at Clophill to this day, and the constant defiling of graves has led to an unprecedented number of ghostly sightings at the lonely hilltop setting. This and the close proximity to the A6 site of the Hanratty murder in 1961 combined to give the church a sinister reputation for the occult. The Paranormal Diaries: Clophill explores the legend for the first time and includes rare interviews with witnesses to events at this most haunted location.
The Paranormal Diaries: Clophill is now a feature film from the creators of The Zombie Diaries, Kevin Gates and Michael Bartlett.
