Ever since the Beginning, even all the way to the end as well as Parallel Time, there’s ALWAYS a price for getting smarter in Collinsport. #darkshadowsthebeginning #billmalloy #frankschofield #ghost #gothic #horror

Barnabas: I’m most eager to take up occupancy (of the Old House).

Roger: I’m looking forward to it too.  I think we’ll be good friends.

Barnabas: More than friends, we’re actually cousins!

Roger: Of course!

Van Helsing: Coat Thief

Was rewatching Horror of Dracula when I looked at Arthur Holmood’s coat and was like “…that looks familiar.”

Double-checked, and yep, in Brides of Dracula, Van Helsing’s wearing the exact same coat except they took the fur trim off.  It has the same herringbone stitching design and the same cut and everything.

VAN HELSING STEALS COATS FROM PEOPLE

Important vampire hunters have no time for the petty concept of personal property.

I’m imagining someone coming to his door,

'come in, may I take your coat?'

they hand him the coat. he puts it on and leaves.

THE TORAJO AND THEIR FUNERAL RITUAL

The Torajo are an indigenous group of people that live in Indonesia. For them a funeral is a celebration. There are no tears shed, rather it’s like a going away party. The Torajo work extremely hard to accumulate wealth during their lives. This money then goes to the funeral ceremony. 

The funeral ceremony could be held weeks or even months after someone has died. A body is not buried until all the funds have been raised. Until the funeral ceremony is held, the deceased person is not considered dead but rather ill or asleep. They are embalmed and stored in the same house as their family until the ceremony. 

The ceremony begins when pigs & buffalo’s are slaughtered because it’s believed the spirit of the dead will live peacefully after. The body is buried on the 11th day. 

WALK OF THE DEAD

Every year in August, a ritual called Ma’Nene (The Ceremony of Cleaning Corpses) takes place in which the bodies of the deceased are exhumed to be washed, groomed and dressed in new clothes. The mummies are then walked around the village by following a path of straight lines. 

Following these straight lines is maybe the most important part of the ceremony. According to the myth, these lines are connected with a spiritual entity with supernatural power. As this entity only move in straight lines, the soul of the deceased body must follow the same path.

This mushroom - thought to be a specimen of Clathrus archeri, or “Devil’s Fingers” - takes the cake for being the strangest and creepiest specimen of a fungus looking like something else. It looks like a cold, dead hand reaching out to pull the rest of the zombie body out of the earth. Those even look like tattered sleeves down by the wrists of the hands.
