Bad Reflections
"I slipped off my blanket and put my feet on the floor as I realized that the bathroom light was on even though I distinctly remembered turning it off before I went to bed.  I cautiously creeped over to the bathroom and peaked my head around the corner. And I froze when I saw the creepy man from the front desk -  seemingly trying to drown some young woman in the bathtub!"Dan has a lot of story to share this week! He starts with the tale of a young woman discovering a man in her hotel room drowning a woman to death. It all feels so real but is it? Can ghosts and the living interact in a way that we didn't think they could? Possibly. This evil man may have drowned a woman, but not in that moment. It's all a bit weird. Then it's time to visit Australia's Letta the Doll. If you brought home a doll for your children and the doll was talking to them in the night, you would think that would be the end of that doll, right? WRONG. Find out why Kerry Walton decided to hang on to this haunted doll. Dan wraps it up with three small tales of haunted mirrors. It will leave you understanding why Lynze will never buy an antique mirror! Speaking of Lynze, she has some juicy tales this week too! A story of two friends who stumble upon an abandoned barn that holds something unexplainable inside. They don't know if they discovered a rotting corpse or the remains of an occult ceremony. Either way, what they discover is less than pleasant. Finishing out the episode, we find ourselves staring out in the dark abyss of the wilderness to find eyes staring right back at us. What a scary thing, to be so vulnerable and then see little sets of eyes spying on you. The worst part is that even after these friends leave the woods, one friend still feels the eyes upon her.  Bad Magic Third Annual Giving Tree Update: We are excited to share that we are able to support 77 families this holiday season! Way to go, Creeps and Peepers! We value your support of other humans. You the fans have donated $13,160! Dan and I are pitching in $15,000 and the Patreon donation is $16,000.

The Melting Clown
"Emilia," he said, turning back to her. "There are people out there coming towards us. People with hoods." "I know," she said calmly. "Sorry, Layton. I really do have feelings for you, but it has to bed fed." "Fed?" Layton didn't like the way that sounded at all. "The beast" he mumbled as he put on his shoes and jacket.A very well documented murder, well actually murders, in Helsinki in 1960 are the basis for this extra creepy tale. Layton and Emilia are a young couple on a trip of a lifetime in Finland, loving life. That all comes to a halt when Emilia tries to offer Layton up as a sacrifice. It's a weird story that will make you think twice about traveling with your significant other. A truly haunted house that also houses haunted objects, possibly, is the basis for tale two of Dan's this week. The house that sits at 50 Berkley Square in London is supposedly home to rare objects, books and items of the occult. Did the Maggs Brothers buy this home because of its interesting past so that they could stash all of their bizarre artifacts there? So many deaths and sightings occurred here, it's hard to imagine anyone would want to own or occupy it. Lynze carries on with the haunted house theme. In the first story, Ana sees a little blonde girl in her house, regularly. Her family eventually confronts the ghost and her many friends, but they don't want to leave. Why do the children want to stay? And is it possible that they simply feel safe there? Lastly, the melting clown. MW has a tale that freaks Dan out. It's one of his greatest fears- Clowns. And that clown shows up in the most vulnerable of places. Many years later, MW finds out just how the spirits that haunted her and her childhood home got there in the first place. Bad Magic Third Annual Giving Tree Update: We will have an update on the next episode as to how many families we were able to help and how much money was donated!

Brown Mountain Lights
"But then one night, when he heard her screaming, he ran in and says he saw the boy from the painting crawling into his daughter’s room. When he screamed the boy thankfully disappeared. And he put the painting in storage."Dan starts with a different angle this week by exploring the world of haunted paintings. It's a totally new space to explore and a really fun and interesting space to find new spoops. Then in his second telling, Dan shares many shared accounts of the Brown Mountain Lights. Lynze has a lot of questions which is really what all of these people have. These mysterious lights are inexplicable and have been going on for years. They are just so bizarre. In Lynze's half of the show, she focuses in on just one story, instead of her usual two or occasional three. A lifetime of hauntings that start when a boy moves in with his grandparents. Like all good hauntings, it starts off slow until he can't take anymore. This cycle seems to repeat its self a few times in his life. Another time he sees himself sleeping next to his girlfriend. Astral projection? Doppleganger? Lucid dream? You decide! This happens yet again. Finally, he has enough and tries to get rid of what has followed him for all of these years. Does it work?   Bad Magic Third Annual Giving Tree Info:This year marks the 3rd annual Bad Magic Giving Tree! Over the last 3 years, we have taken what would be the monthly donation for a charity and kept it in our Bad Magic family.The first year, we only had the donation money.Then last year, the fans wanted to help. Dan and I offered to match the total amount donated, which was maybe a bit insane, as the fans donated over $18,000. Lynze and I also donated more than $18,000, plus the $11,000 from Timesuck’s Patreon and we had over $47,000 to spend!This year, we are excited to announce the Bad Magic Giving Tree once again!  We will be using the December Patreon donation to kick start the fund for this year’s Bad Magic Giving Tree. We estimate we’ll be donating roughly $16,000 from Patreon. As of recording this episode, which is a few weeks ahead of time, the fans have sent in over $4,000. We are well on our way to giving some of you a little bit of love this holiday season.  Thank you for continuing to send in your stories, Creeps and Peepers! Please keep doing so.

The Impostor
“Something out here is trying to kill us. It wants us to swerve off the road and crash - it’s TRYING to get me to swerve off the road and crash."Dan has two fantastic tales this week but Lynze's stories seem to be the one's that really give the chills this week. Dan tells the story of a tired, over worked cab driver in Vera Cruz. At the end of his shift, all he wants to do is go home and go to bed. A beautiful woman begs for a ride home and he is so captivated that he drives her home. When he returns the next day to take her on a date, he is shocked to learn that she has been dead for many, many years.  Continuing with the theme of seeing weird things while driving, Dan takes us to Scotland to visit one of the most haunted roads. Two brothers encounter so many bizarre things, so many spirits that it would seem impossible to not be real. Lynze, unintentionally, starts off her half of the show with another tale of seeing bizarre and scary things while driving at night, her first tale is a 2 for 1 special about the Smiling Man. While driving through their small town, the see the Smiling Man not once, but twice. Wrapping up the show is an insane story about a shape shifting doppelgänger. It's a long story that bobs and weaves. Pay close attention and enjoy your nightmares, creeps and peepers.Bad Magic Third Annual Giving Tree Info:This year marks the 3rd annual Bad Magic Giving Tree!

The Hidebehind
This weeks episode has a strong theme of seeing things you just aren't sure of! We have so much non spoopy info to share with you  that we will keep this part short! Dan shares the folklore of the "hidebehind", something that is hiding in the woods! Then off to the Philippines  for  haunting of the elementals. It's a bizarre story with a surprise ending! Lynze has some info to share about the spirit in their house, followed by two fan tales. The first comes in  from Colorado (she misspoke in the episode and said Texas) from a LEO about being called into a domestic dispute that is anything but that. Then story two will have you wondering what exactly is crawling into bed with you at night. Don't be surprised if it's not your beloved pet. Bad Magic Third Annual Giving Tree Info:This year marks the 3rd annual Bad Magic Giving Tree!

Montana Nightmare
"You don’t want to be with me,” Kris replied, her voice gravely and low. Laurie realized that there was still laughter— a different, high-pitched laughter, at the same time as Kris was speaking. “You want to be with them. You hate me.”“I don’t hate you,” she begged, trying not to let her legs give out. She felt like the dolls were closing in on her, could even feel the brush of cloth against her ankles, like they were beginning to surround her. She was about to become hysterical."Dan brings it this week with two incredible stories! The first story is a tale of a couple who decide that, due to the pandemic, they are going to move out of their busy city and out to the mountains of Montana. It all sounds so sweet, almost dream like! The dream of making an old house their new home quickly goes sideways when a room of dolls is discovered. From the moment the dolls are found, everything changes. A possession in the Philippines is Dan's second story. It's a sad story, the story of a young girl living a hard life. Her hard life grows harder when she is incarcerated and then possessed. The ending of this story though, is a real head scratcher. Lynze admits that this weeks stories are a bit less spoopy than usual, she's starting to crack up a little bit. Her first story will take us to the World's Fair in St. Louis in 1904 where an abandoned baby goes on to lead a very interesting life and is possibly still quite interesting in death. Then, a chance encounter with the beast of Bray Rd. Two friends set out to cruise around and enjoy a few beers. When one of them needs to answer natures call, a horrific scene unfolds. Then, to end the show, a protective Grandpa makes a return visit to make sure his granddaughter remains safe. New Merch: Something special in the Bad Magic Merch store this week, an Annabelle exclusive collection. The Scared to Death gym time collection. Go workout while getting scared! So much fun stuff! A duffel bag, shirt, notebook, clipboard, water bottle, sticker and even an after gym towel.

Born on Halloween
"The mist now surrounded both men, shrouding them in a haze. Slowly, the man reached out, gripping Cesar's hand tightly in his own. Cesar let out a sigh of relief. The man’s black eyes shifted to Mario. “Bcasqua” he said in a low, raspy voice. Before Mario could take another breath, the man pulled Cesar with him over the edge of the cliff and down they both went."Dan kicks off the show with a classic tale most of you will know. The Hull House! This is the inspiration for Rosemary's Baby, a horror movie classic! Then story number two of this Halloween themed episode, Dan takes us to Columbia to visit the haunted falls of Tequendama. Back in the states, Lynze brings us to Colorado for the story of a very bizarre and possibly haunted silo.

The Halloween Others
"I guess it’s time isn’t it?” Mitchell was about to answer them when from behind he heard his own voice reply, “I guess it is." Mitchell spun around to see himself at the top of the stairs and he screamed. He ran down the rest of the stairs as his parents and the Other ran towards him."Dan and Lynze are getting us ready for Halloween with a Halloween centric episode! Expect this episode and the following episode to have Halloween themes and overtones. Dan's first story is about a son, returning home to see his parents. Except his parents are different now, not quite themselves. Are they themselves or are they the other? In his second tale, a young girl has an imaginary friend who turns out to be anything but imaginary and is for sure, not a friend. Lynze presents the tale of three friends who tromp through an old, haunted dorm. They get out alive. Or do they? This is a tale of the taboo. Then in her second spoopy story, Lynze has a fast little story about two sisters who most definitely see a spirit in their house after a night of trick-or-treating! Moment House Halloween Show Details: We are very excited to announce that tickets are ON SALE NOW for the first annual Scared to Death Live Haunted Halloween - true tales of Hallow’s Ever horror!

Haunting at the Skirvin Hotel
"Then he heard it. Ever so faintly, but very distinct. The sound of a baby crying. And more unsettling, Bill felt there was something else going on. He strongly felt that that he wasn’t alone in his room." Dan has an old tale of the Hayden Family. Did one member of their family curse them for all time? Would you believe it if it came to fruition? Then Dan takes us to Malaysia for the folklore tale of the oily man. Is he a human man, hiding behind the folklore or is it an incorrigible incubus, seeking out women to fulfill its needs. And then Dan gives us a little treat with a third tale about the very haunted Skirvin Hotel. The Attachment from the Green House, is Lynze's first tale today. Could ghost or spirit start to follow you at a young age and in time, slowly reveal itself? Listener tale number one explores a lifetime haunting that is seemingly building up to something. Listener tale two is about a haunted house that seems to contain two different spirits. Perhaps one good and one evil?

We Simply Must Be Going Now.
TW: THIS EPISODE CONTAINS DETAILS OF A GRUESOME SUICIDE "They way I heard it, they were both found in their bed, laying side-by-side on their backs, heads perfectly propped up on their pillows, and a note on the nightstand that read, “We simply must be going now.” Dan has seriously creepy tales this week, guaranteed to spook even the bravest of Creeps. Tale one contains TW, please proceed with caution as this tale is explicit. A young woman left to fend for herself is unable to handle all of the tragedy bestowed upon her. When she completes suicide, her spirit remains unsatisfied. Has she come back to the scene of her death to collect more souls? The second story is that of The Berini Haunting. A family experiences a long series of paranormal events that seem to precede real life tragedy. When an exorcism is preformed, what is the end result? Lynze starts with a long tale of the White Woman, who has followed someone for all of their life. Is it possible to bring your attachment with you, everywhere you go, for you whole life? A second story that is short tale feels like a brief sighting of a spirit, possibly disguised as her partner.

"She opened her mouth to ask another question… and then a gentle, cold hand rested on her stomach, right over her tiny baby bump. Marissa gasped. She watched silently as a pale white outline of a woman appeared directly in front of her, on the other side of the headstone. It them stepped towards her..." WOW!! What bizarre and frightening tales Dan has for us all this week! He's calling it a graveyard creatures double feature! And that it is!! So many spoops fill out this episode of graveyard haunts!

Witch's Bridge
"He stared down at himself with the same horrified expression. I knew right away he saw it too. As I opened my mouth to say something, he screamed. His feet fell out from under him, and I screamed too as his head hit the edge of the bridge, as I watched him seemingly get pulled straight down into the river." In Great Falls, Montana, some police officers are among those who believe that one of their jail cells is haunted. The Old Cascade County Jail was built in the early 1900s, directly across the street from the west face of the courthouse. Bob Edwards, a Cascade County Sheriff , claims he saw a strange mist floating through through the old cells on a video monitor. It spooked him. And to this day, he has no explanation for it. According to local legend, she was believed to dabble in witchcraft. Or at least that’s what she was accused of. One night, some scared local townspeople decided to form a vigilante lynch mob, and take what they considered to be justice into their own hands. They decided to kill who they believed to be a heretic. And when they made it to her house that night, they grabbed the poor woman, and they hanged her from a tree directly in front of her her home. According to legend, in her last moments, she cursed the house and the surrounding land and still haunts the area today. Summer Camp should be a fun time to hang out with your friends and enjoy your freedom from your parents. It shouldn't be a place that you and your friends find themselves terrified of what comes in the night. In story one, Lynze walks us through a very bizarre summer camp story. After that, she has two more tales, both about haunted houses. The first house appears to very angry when the new owners begin to renovate. It's a classic haunted tale! The second haunted house comes with a big twist at the end, so stay tuned for the most chilling details! New Merch:Also, in the store now at badmagicmerch.com!

Make Your Peace
"Then he heard Wei’s scream get cut off abruptly and then he heard a quick succession of thumping… like a body falling down the stairs… or being dragged. And then a moment later..." In story one this week, we go to Beijing! A beautiful and ominous, ivy covered French baroque style mansion sits in a complex with another mansion inside an impressive courtyard in the Dongcheng District of Beijing. Originally built by the American Catholic Church in 1910 and then used from 1930 until 1949 as a Chinese language school to train foreign missionaries, the house then began a long, long period of sitting unoccupied, surrounded by stories of the vengeful ghost of a scorned woman haunting the grounds And now, to Iceland! Hurrá is a popular bar/nightclub in Reykjavik, Iceland. Hurrá doesn’t just make the lists of the best pubs in Reykjavik, it also makes the lists of the “most haunted” spots in all of Iceland. Local lore claims that a young sailor was murdered on the shore where the bar now sits, many centuries ago, and his spirit never seems to have moved from the place where he died. Story three considers the idea that being in touch with the other side might be something passed from one generation to the next when a red bouncing ball appears to multiple in one family. Story four has us encountering a house full of paranormal activity that seems to be coming from a gnome. New Merch:Also, in the store now at badmagicmerch.com! Revelations Tee, coaster, and coffee mug. This design reminds me of stained glass from some medieval church - but a dark church that would have gotten a lot of heretics burned - and it looks incredible.

Under the Ice
BIG TW ON THIS EPISODE! DAN'S SECOND STORY CONTAINS GRAPHIC DETAILS OF TORTURE AND MURDER. VERY EXPLICIT! "A tap tap tapping beneath his feet made him jump. It sounded like something was just underneath the ice. Caleb watched, frozen in fear…. as the dark outline of a hand pressed against the ice from below. Tap tap tap...." In Dan's half of the show, he takes us to Connecticut! A somewhat hilarious story of a man trying to move his house across a frozen lake leads to the house sinking. And while that is is own kind of horror, the real fun begins when the rumors flare. Supposedly, the house sinks to the bottom of the lake where the piano left inside is now played by ghosts. Turns out, there might be someone under the ice. Then in story number two, we travel to Hong Kong. A sad, tragic story leads to one very scary tale. A young women is brutalize and murdered for stealing from her pimp. After dying at the hands of her torturer, she returns to seek her revenge. Lynze has 3 back to back to back stories that are all just a little bit odd. A UFO sighting that was confirmed by multiple sources, a little girl conjures up a new friend in the mirror and possibly haunted hotel or the very least, a very sketchy situation. Combine all three for maximum spoops! New Merch: New Scared to Death playing cards in the store now at badmagicmerch.com.

TW: Lynze's story contains details of the death of a child. "Rob couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw a scruffy, human like shape coming up through the ground.He felt a wave of fear engross him as he saw what he assumed was a literal zombie - an undead corpse - climbing up through a hole at the back of the mausoleum. " There is a reason why cemeteries are so scary. The are home to the dead. What would you do if you saw someone crawling out of a grave? Find out who is back from the dead in Dan's first tale. Dan shares a terrifying tale that will remind you that if it sounds too good to be true, it is. Jenna needed money and was desperate. When she has the opportunity to make $2,000 in one night for simply house sitting, she jumps at the opportunity. Unfortunately, Jenna is in for a very dark night. Lynze has just one tale for us this week. It's a long and very scary tale. The Cave City of Balochistan is home to an urban legend.

The Seven Gates Of Hell
"There must have been a hundred sets of glowing eyes in front of them. Some of their figures were only shadows.But some of the closest ones, the ones moving towards them now, they could see their faces. Their bodies. All of them looked malevolent. All of them seemed to be coming directly for them." TW: Dan's second story has a violent story woven into the horror story. Proceed with caution and take care while listening. Toad Road AKA The Seven Gates of Hell is a classic haunting. Dan tells such a great sotry about two teens trying to prove their bravery and prove the rumors to be true. One gate, two gates, three gates, four, five and six... what happens when they cross over the sixth gate? Then a very fun flash back to our teen years with a story of a haunted house owned by none other than TLC singer T-Boz! An all around creepy, albeit sad, story that will make you consider following your gut about your kids friends. Lynze gives us a palette cleanser for the first story, sharing a tale of a sweet moment between a skeptic and possibly, his deceased mother. An LDS missionary gets more than he bargained for when he asks the question, "How powerful is the Devil?". Can you conjure up the evil just as easily as the good? Closing out the show, Lynze explores the idea of a premonition via a dream. STREET TEAM: Live in the store now at badmagicmerch.com.

Don't Stop
"Their friend said that if you drove through the tunnel at midnight to the hotel and called out the boy’s name… you might see him in your rear-view mirror, running up behind your car, flailing his disjointed limbs as he tried to catch you. " Dan weaves horror this week, telling us about Japanese traditions of Kimodameshi. The folklore that comes out of Japan is possibly some of the best and most terrifying. In the summer months, they celebrate a season of hauntings. What do two friends get themselves into when they try to complete a test of courage? Then back to the states to famously haunted Biltmore Hotel in Miami. A honeymoon gone sideways when a very strong message is sent to the lovebirds that they aren't welcome. A hotel steeped in history and crazy stories, this haunted hotel story is a classic. Lynze knows Dan and others will be divided on her first story, sharing the tale of a possibly powerful crystal that doesn't seem to be doing anyone any good. Can a spirit or entity attach itself so strongly to an item that the affected person just won't abandon it? Then, a really, really tough story of a haunted house that ends in tragedy. CAUTION! Please be advised that this story is graphic. STREET TEAM: At high noon, pacific time, on Monday, August 16th, the stickers will go live on badmagicmerch.com.

The Haunted House of Lunahuaná
"And then Julian felt the temperature drop and that same cold air on his right ear. And now… something new… a finger touching his back.A faint, white glow surrounded him. Something was behind him. He slowly turned around, tears running down his face, lip trembling, coming face to face with a white, womanly figure." Peru! Oh Peru! We have not travelled to this part of the world yet, making this a whole new area of spoops. A couple of teenage kids get far more than they bargained for when they embark on a night time tour of the haunted house of Lunahuaná! Then for a little twist, Dan tells various tales of people who have worked on horror movies and have seen a whole lot more than they bargained for, when the cameras stopped rolling. Lynze has a life long haunting tale to tell of a woman who has been plagued by the same spirit her whole life. It would seem that this spirit showed up in her childhood and never left. Is it possible to carry the same spirit with you, for all of your days? Robert The Doll is a famously haunted doll. He lives in a museum in Florida. If you choose to visit him, there are strict instructions on how you can interact with him. If you don't follow the rules, something bad might happen to you. Follow along as one fan shares his encounter with Robert The Doll! What We’re Doing for Episode 100: Gonna have a fun drinking game for our 100th episode, so have some alcohol on hand when you listen if you like to drink. Rules will be determined by our Roberts and Annabelles. Gonna be a longer episode than the average episode. More banter than normal. Gonna be - hopefully - a lot of spooks and a lot of fun. Can’t wait to celebrate a hundred episodes of Scared to Death! New Merch: Super fun, new red and black, “Not today, Demon!” tees in the Bad Magic Merch store. Not sure, because we’re recording this in advance , but possibly some Scared to Death volume two books are still left for preorder. Limited amount, so again, when they’re gone they’re gone.
