The Ghosts Of Eastern State Penitentiary & The Scariest Places In The World

The Monster Men haven’t been to the Eastern State Penitentiary, but Monster Woman in training, Ivy Shea, has, and she may have caught something strange on her camera.

I’ve been saving this post for Halloween, and for good reason. Halloween, or better still, Samhain, is the time when the dead truly walk among us. Who doesn’t love a ghost story? Arguably, the best part of John Carpenter’s classic, The Fog, is the very beginning when John Houseman tells ‘one more story‘ on the beach just before midnight.

Even better are the true tales of hauntings and wayward spirits.

Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia is on just about every paranormal enthusiast’s bucket list, including my own.

I didn’t, and I have been vacationing right outside its doors for years! Located in Portland, Maine, it’s owned and run by world famous cryptozoologist, Loren Coleman. He’s the man who actually coined the terms for many now famous cryptids such as the Montauk Monsterand The Dover Demon. You’ve seen him on TV and documentaries like Ancient Aliens, MonsterQuest and Weird Travels. The best part is, when you go to the museum, Loren is there to greet you and talk monsters.

OK, after 2 years of living without a website, the Monster Men finally have their own dungeon…I mean home. We’re just a few days away from October, or what Jack and Hunter call #Horrortober. That means prepping for Halloween, watching a  horror movie a day, scary reads and saving our sheckles for horror cons.

We’re going to add the Monster Men archives over the next few weeks, which means you’ll be able to watch all 48 episodes right here, in the comfort of our horrid abode.

So, to get you in the proper mood, let’s start things off with a few Halloween themed podcasts. Watch on, if you’ve got the guts.
