THE NIGHTMARE CLOSET

Movies, Music, and Nightmares

The becoming

Not sure when my interest in the strange and Paranormal began. It could have been my love for Scooby-Doo and Goober and the Ghost Chasers as a child (Showing my age here, they were my favorite.) It could have been listening to all the Ghost Stories told by my Grandfather, or when my mother finally let me watch a scary movie, which became a lifelong love for The Horror genre.

Whatever the cause, it started me down a path of no return. Endless hours of good old Scary movies, countless books read, (Fiction and Non-Fiction). True stories are always the best, in my opinion.

As a child, my cousins and I would sit outside at my Grandfather's and listen for what we could hear. You couldn't see there it was the boonies, where Wolves, Bear and Big Cats still roam. Just hoping we would see or hear something unexplainable, or at least one of the wild creatures. Mostly we wanted to see Bigfoot.
Walking the woods and finding old cemeteries or old schoolhouses that time forgot. The old creek bed that an Indian village set on and hearing the stories that followed.

Every day my interest in History, the truth, and Haunted places grew. As time went by and I was old enough to venture out on my own, I sought out these places to see what I could uncover or experience.

Today some call it Legend Tripping or Ghost Hunting. I was Ghost Hunting before Ghost Hunting was cool. I can tell you I've seen and experienced some strange and unexplained things. Now it's time for me to share my stories.~William
