“By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.” —Shakespeare

Some of us have lived through and survived experiences that could rival any story out of Hollywood.

A new waitress at a haunted hotel closes the restaurant for her first time on her own and encounters a spirit who fits the description of the victim of a tragic accident that took place less than a year prior in the exact spot she saw him.

The doorbell rings at the home of a little boy whose mother is in the shower and out of ear shot. Who’s at the door? Could it be the serial killer that’s been terrorizing the community? Tall, slender, sandy blond hair, mustache, it’s him.

An over confident, self proclaimed ‘flaming atheist’ works as a tour guide on a so called ‘haunted’ historic ship. One night a special tour takes the group to the very bottom of the ship, 100′ below the surface. Unexplained orbs of light flash above her head and only one other person in the group can see them, shaking her confidence and her bones. 

For the month of October The Flame presents ‘Something Wicked’, true stories of the unusual, the unexplained, and the terrifying shared by the people who survived them. If you have a terrifying story you’d like to share, please send a brief synopsis to Spaces are limited.
