“The afflicted complained that disembodied spirits were stabbing them, choking them, and jabbing them with needles and pins. Soon names were cried out as the afflicted began to identify these specters.” – An excerpt from Salem’s Ropes by Joseph C. Gioconda #salem #witch #witchhunt #hauntedhouse #horror
In the memoir, Haunted: A Paranormal Awakening, Julie Coons shares how her dream house morphed into a life-threatening nightmare. For most, if not all, of us, a home is synonymous with a place of comfort, peace, and joy. When Julie Coons moved to a beautiful house with her husband and daughter, she hoped to feel an overwhelming warmth wash over her. After her difficult childhood with an abusive mother and a gut-wrenching marriage, she deserved a place to call home sweet home. Instead, she received demonic activities comparable to the most daunting horror movies. While the evil spirits were taunting, scratching, bruising, and filling her brain with unimaginable fear, she found the worst part was going through the whole trepidation alone.
