Publisher's Summary

During the 1840s, America and many countries all over the world began to embrace a new mode of thinking. Countless newspapers began to report individuals who could communicate with the dead. Rather than feared as something dark and unnatural as it once had, many individuals all over the globe began to embrace this new wave of spiritualism.

Seances were not only accepted but became quite a common pastime in American households. In 1886 a new device hit the scene, guaranteed to allow just about anyone to communicate with spirits who had passed on.

The talking board was thus introduced to everyday society. Some believed the original Ouija board was a genuine channel in which to communicate with the dead. Others were skeptical - but enjoyed playing with talking boards nonetheless.

Everything changed, however, when the film The Exorcist hit theaters in 1973. For the first time, the Ouija board was not seen as an innocent toy or device, but as a means to channel Satan himself. Seemingly overnight, the Ouija board was considered an evil object - a cursed object.

To this day, the Ouija board continues to produce mixed feelings in people all around the world. But what most people fail to realize is that these historic talking boards are not the only objects in existence that are believed to be evil or cursed.

In fact, there are many objects scattered around the globe that leave a trail of terror, paranoia, and even death in their wake.

    "Waste of time"

    For starters, the narrator sounds like Fat Tony from The Simpsons. It's hard to take anything seriously. The writing is bad, and some of the stories just seem to abruptly end with no resolution. If you are looking for a good book on hauntings, keep looking.

    "More Creepy Hauntings"

    This was another great collection of creepy tales of the paranormal from author Roger P Mills. His extensive research shows, as many of the stories in this book were new to me. There was only one exception, regarding the Myrtle Plantation hauntings, there was indeed a slave named Chloe who was the unwilling lover of the plantation owner. She accidentally poisoned his wife and two children who all died. Chloe ran away, was caught and hanged. This particular story has been told for hundreds of years and her ghost has been seen, so I don't know why the author dropped the ball on this one. Otherwise, there are some interesting tales to thrill you in this collection. I listened to the audio book version of this and it was an enjoyable experience. The narrator did a good job, though the pace was a bit slow.
