American Idol Mansion Haunted?

Friday, May 8th, 2009


American Idol Contestant Allison Iraheta was the latest to be ousted. The judges blamed her performance, but could ghosts keeping her up at night be to blame?

A few days ago Allison claimed that the spirit of a previous inhabitant of the American Idol Mansion had been visiting her in the night, growling in her boudoir and making loud banging noises.

The residents of the house have lovingly dubbed the specter “Phyllis”. Other females that have since left the mansion claim to have caught sight of the ghost themselves, claiming that Phyllis appears as a white shadow. Funny though, It seems Phyllis doesn’t the like the men of the house, because no males in the idol crew have yet to report interaction with the ghost.

Warwick Castle Too Haunted for Construction Workers

Thursday, April 16th, 2009


Workers constructing a Dungeon Attraction at historic Warwick Castle were put off there work by Site Manager Paul Woodfield’s encounters with a ghost. Claiming to have seen a figure of a slender man wandering the grounds, the head of the project ordered his workers to halt construction until the ghostly apparitions could be explained. These reported ghost sightings come during efforts to build a tourist attraction that would include actor’s dressing up as ghosts and the undead to frighten visitors in the “Torture Chamber”. Wait a minute….construction site, spooky castle, unexplained hauntings, actors dressed like ghosts….this sounds suspiciously like an episode of Scooby-Doo.

Ghost Nun Offers Interior Decorating Advice

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009


The Ghost of a pregnant, South African Nun, that haunts a house in Bathurst, has been doling out interior design tips to her earthly hosts. Marilyn Michau, the owner of the home, was reportedly dropping her daughter off for a consultation with a local medium, when the medium approached her and told her that she had a message from the nun. Michau, who had noticed strange and haunting anomalies around her house was not surprised that the nun was trying to communicate with her. According to Michau:

She [the nun speaking through the medium] described the house exactly and asked me to renovate and restore it to its former glory particularly by making the upstairs windows into doors again.”

Michau followed the nun’s advice, though here at WeirdThings, we would be hesitant to accept any fashion advice from a nun. The pregnant nun was said to have offed herself when her illicit affair with a local man was discovered. We’d like to think she would have considered the immaculate conception defense first, but without her sacrifice Michau’s house wouldn’t look nearly as nifty.

Friday, March 27th, 2009


The new horror flick ‘The Haunting in Connecticut’ claims to be based on the true story of a family that rented a house in Connecticut in 1986, not knowing it was haunted, and became the unwitting victims of demons.
Benjamin Radford over at has turned his skeptical eye on this claim. Take a look.
