Favorite scary weather scenes in horror movies! (from EarthSky)

Favorite scary weather scenes in horror movies

Are those loud rumbles of thunder – or pelts of hail hitting your roof and knocking on your windows – or a crazed psycho killer on the loose?


Have you ever watched a scary movie where a crazed killer chases a person in an old, abandoned house during a thunderstorm? If you have, then you know how certain kinds of weather can add suspense and thrills to a horror movie. Thunderstorms can be loud and can produce the flickering lighting that adds to a scary movie. Some of the classic movies just had to include stormy weather. Follow the links below for my picks of favorite scary weather scenes in horror movies.
Frankenstein. How would Frankenstein be born without a good thunderstorm with plenty of lightning?
VIDEO CLIP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8H3dFh6GA-A

The Shining. Stephen King built his book (and the subsequent movie) The Shining upon the fact that weather can be horrible. The Shining focuses on a hotel where a couple and their son are trapped by bad weather, and (bwahaha) the hotel eventually drives Jack Nicholson’s character mad. Towards the end of the movie, the scene below would not be possible without a major winter storm. SPOILER ALERT for the clip below: If you’ve never seen The Shining, you might want to avoid watching this clip!

Psycho. The classic Alfred Hitchcock movie Psycho also uses bad weather to drive the action forward. Near the premise and beginning of this movie, Marion Crane leaves her home and work place after stealing money from her boss. After hours of driving on the road, a mixture of fatigue and stormy weather influences her decision to spend the night at the Bates motel. Without the storm, would she have stayed at the Bates Motel? We’ll never know, but you have to admit, weather played a large role in her decision to spend the night at a hotel … that will never let her come out alive.
Happy Halloween!

A Little Girl's Spirit Gives Me a Tragic Story

A girl like the spirit I saw
At Medium Barb Mallon's Halloween event this weekend I received a couple of messages from spirits. One of them was from a child. I was sitting in the back of the room while Barb was getting messages from a spirit when a little girl's spirit

came through to me. 
   She told me she was a young African-American girl and she had passed. I felt a dry throat and heard her say, "There was smoke everywhere. There was a fire in our house. It was hot, I was tired, I couldn't breathe and I fell asleep. She told me that she was wearing a red top and little black skirt. She said that she's okay now, and she said she may be heard walking around the house at night. 
  She also said that "Whenever you're cooking on the stove, I'm standing right next to you."
I held onto that message and didn't know who it belonged to- but the little girl would tell me later.
  When the night's events came to a close I didn't have the opportunity to read my 2 messages aloud, so it was up to spirit to tell me who they were for. After the session, I went into the lobby of the hotel (where the event took place) and stood at a table with my three books. 
house fire with a lot of smoke
  I talked with a lot of people that evening, but when two women came up to me, one caucasian and the other African-American I felt the little girl's spirit nudge me to tell the women my message. 
  The African-American woman said "That's my husband's cousin. Actually cousins. There were two little girls ages 3 and 5 that died in a fire recently." He wanted to know if they were okay on the other side, and this was his confirmation.    So why did I only get messages from one of them? She was the "spokesperson" for both of them. Oftentimes one spirit will come through stronger and more vocal than another - as in the case of a husband and wife for instance. 
  It was amazing that not only was this little girl descriptive, but she pointed out the person that needed the message.

Message from a Dog's Spirit during NY Trip

Two weeks ago, I  traveled to upstate New York to do a fundraiser for the Adirondack Save a Stray rescue and talk about how pets communicate from the afterlife. I flew in on the afternoon of the event, and the next morning on the way back to the airport, explored the small town of Glens Falls. It's funny how when you're least expecting it, you can get a message from a spirit to let you know they're around. That's exactly what happened that morning when my late puppy Buzz gave me a clear sign.
Buzz's spirit led me here.


Buzz










THE GREY GHOST- That's a nickname for Weimaraners and there was a bicycle shop by that name so I had to get a picture of it!  Our dog Buzz was a Weimaraner (the dog who passed in 2005) and it became clear to me that he led me there to let me know he's still with me!

Pet Expo Story: Debbie's Story of Spirit Moving Table Across House!

At the New England Pet Expo, I met a wonderful woman named Debbie K, who talked with me about paranormal activity in her house. I asked if she would share the story for others as a way to show some ways that spirit tries to communicate with us... and examples of cats seeing spirits!  - Rob
Here's Debbie's story:
the table that spirit moves
We moved into our home the end of July, 2013 and at that time we were unaware that the wife had passed in January of 2011.  The third week of August I was out at training all day while my husband was at work.  I came home from training and a table that was in our living room was standing upright in the doorway to our office.  We only have cats and there is no way they could have moved the table.  I thought my husband may have moved the table for some reason and shrugged it off - he left after I had that morning.  When he came home from work, I asked him if he moved the table and he had not!  
        After cleaning up from dinner, I went to go into the basement to do laundry and noticed the door was ajar (it is always closed to keep the cats upstairs).  We searched the bathroom and all closets in the house and did not find signs of an intruder.  
The distance the spirit moved the table through the houe!
        Also in August my husband was changing out outlets since they were old and were not grounded.  He shut off breakers in the basement until he found the one for the living room.  However, the same breaker did that area of the basement and he turned on one of the clip on lights that you get from Home Depot.  After changing the outlets, he went back into the basement and the light was off - it was completely unplugged from the wall!!
     Tonight I was making dinner and heard something fall in the basement.  One of our cats was in the back hallway and was sniffing the closed door and seemed concerned about what he heard.  I became nervous and of course my husband again was not home yet.  It is at times like this that I wish we had a dog to make me feel a little more settled.  As best as I can tell, nothing has happened from the two events last year and what I heard tonight.
  
****************************
After reading Debbie's story I got a couple of messages from spirit, so I emailed them to her to see if they made sense. Here's what I wrote:
Hi Debbie- Thank you so much for your story!  It was so nice to meet you at the Pet Expo.
I remember your story of the door being opened and the table moved. Wow. The diagram really shows that the table was moved quite a distance. That's a strong spirit!  - Usually they'll hide tools, a check, cash, or something light.
   - Did that table belong to someone in your family? (not your husband's side- your side). I'm getting  the sense that there was an older male spirit connected with you that's paying you a visit from time to time. More like someone who is actually watching over you. That's what the noises are that you hear. - He says "the cats can see me and figured it out."
   What's the significance of September to you and your family? - and the number "33" or something with threes in it?  - those things all relate to the table, and the activity you've experienced.
   There's no bad feelings there, it's all good. It's all about watching  over you. - The fusebox needed to be attended to to prevent a fire, and that was part of the reason for the attention.
 - Does any of this make sense to you?


**************************
Debbie acknowledged the messages I sent and provided the following explanations:
The table I had bought at a tag sale (the tag sale had a man running it) probably about 4 or 5 years ago (so it's not connected to anyone in the family).
 
I had a boyfriend pass away suddenly in March of 2003.  Sean was great to my cats and one especially took to him. (THIS IS THE MALE VISITING)   The last weekend he visited, she would not go anywhere near him which I thought was odd.  Monday afternoon he passed away of a massive heart attack and I know that is why Lady acted weird - she sensed something was up.  We lost Lady probably about 2 years ago due to illness and all of our current cats did not know Sean.
Regarding September, the only thing is my birthday which was the 13th.  When I turned 13 I drove my mother insane because it was a Friday!  I am the same age as Sean was when he passed - 42.

Everything we have seen so far has been nothing bad so I am not letting myself worry about it - except it was scary being home along last night and thinking someone was in our basement.

Podcast: Spirits wreak havoc during my interview on Paranormal TV

I had a great interview with Noreen Belovich, host of Paranormal TV Zone about the "Lessons learned from talking to the Dead" on October 9th, but it was cut short due to technical difficulties. Noreen pieced two parts of it together into one, as we talked about ghosts and spirits in general. You can hear it here!
http://youtu.be/n-ToQVuCJM8?list=UUvq1bzvA8uHtq0feFX-FBdQ

BTW- The reason for the technical difficulties were that I sensed three female spirits and one male spirit in the room with Noreen who all wanted to give her messages. I sent her an email explaining who they were and what they told me. :) - SO, On DECEMBER 11th, Thursday at 9pm EDT, Noreen is having me back for a return visit!

A Spirit at the Baltimore Comic-Con!

Me and a female Green Lantern
You never know when a spirit is going to drop in on you or influence you to go a certain direction. That's exactly what happened to me when I recently attended the big Baltimore Comic-Con(vention). There were a lot of cool costumed heroes and villains walking around the Baltimore Comic-con, and here are some pictures that I took with some of them. I went dressed in costume as the superhero Green Lantern again this year. 
The Avengers and Rob as Green Lantern

I got to pose for a picture with the "Avengers" from the Marvel Comics series (and movie). From left to right are the characters: Hawkeye, Venom, Captain America, (me as Green Lantern) and Thor, the God of Thunder. 

A SPECIAL SPIRIT VISITS AT COMIC-CON:  You never know when someone who passed is going to be standing beside you, and our friend Ed, who passed in 1996 was with me at the Comic-con today. He used to read Uncle Scrooge comics (even as an adult) and laugh out loud at them. When I was walking around with Stacey and Tom R. we came across Scrooge McDuck's illustrator!   I knew that Ed was standing right there with me and he was as excited as I was!  

Don Rosa, Illustrator

SCROOGE MC DUCK'S ILLUSTRATOR! 

Keno Don Hugo Rosa, known simply as Don Rosa (born June 29, 1951), is an American comic book writer and illustrator known for his stories about Scrooge McDuck, Donald Duck and other Disney characters. 
WHO IS SCROOGE MC DUCK?   - Scrooge McDuck is a cartoon character created in 1947 by Carl Barksand licensed by The Walt Disney Company. Scrooge is an elderly Scottish anthropomorphic Pekin Duck with a yellow-thrift, and within the context of the fictional Disney universe, he is the world's richest person. Named after Ebenezer Scrooge from the 1843 novel A Christmas Carol, Scrooge is a wealthy Scottish business magnate and tycoon.
