Hello everyone. Once again I find myself on the road to earn a paycheck and for the past week I have been working nights. These graveyard shifts haven't allowed me much time other than eating and sleeping. Today being my first and only day off, though I post this update and should be back in September with more articles along with new podcast. Also, to conclude this series on curses was thinking about an article on a cursed movie, but to my discovery there are a few of them. Instead I found this video on YouTube and hope you enjoy it.

Exactly what is a curse? How does it work? What makes it supernatural? These, like many other questions, I had asked when I first came across the concept of a curse. Over the years, I had learned it could also be a hex or jinx where supernatural forces are invoked to inflict harm, misfortune or punishment on a person or people by spells, rituals, pact, spirit or divine being. Curses could even be placed on objects or places, but could they follow you home? The next installment in the series of curses, we'll be looking at the ghost town of Bodie.

The Legend of Moll Dyer has become the most viewed article on Abnormal Realm to date. I would like to thank everyone for checking out the blog along with their comments and feedback. There was no surprise in receiving emails asking for more articles on similar stories. As requested, I will be doing a three part series on places, objects or people believed to be cursed. This week's article looks into the haunted pillar of Georgia.

A few days ago, I went over to a friend's place to watch a few horror movies which including the Blair Witch Project. I remember the first time watching the film in theater and enjoying those few moments of suspense, but now it did nothing. I guess that what occurs with any movie you watch 15 years after its release. However, I did learn something new about the film that my friend had informed me about. The Blair Witch Project was inspired from an actual legend of a witch named Moll Dyer who lived in Maryland, USA, during the 17th century.

Prior to the internet, most of my knowledge about the paranormal came from books, articles, magazines and journals. I read everything I could about UFOs, aliens, demons, ghosts, monsters, legends and even abnormalities in animal behavior. There are cases about domestic pets that cross hundreds of miles to reunite with family, know when their own is coming home or alert to the presence of a supernatural entity. There was this one dark tale I read about involving dogs and a bridge in the U.K.
