April 25, 2015-Sandusky, OH- The world premiere for Horror Society’s most anticipated film of 2015 will be held at Sandusky State Theater in Sandusky, Ohio, just 20 minutes from the location of the most popular urban legend in the state of Ohio, on July 11th with events on the 10th and 11th.

The film stars Maria Olsen (Percy Jackson/Paranormal Activity 3/Starry Eyes), Internet Tycoon Bill Townsend, Keri Maletto (Home Shopping Network) and introduces a trio of amazing child actors Emma Leigh Smith, Nora Hoyle and Brandon Mangin Jr.  It also stars five Cleveland natives Rick Montgomery Jr,  Jeremy Kaluza, Brooke Bellaurdo, Chris Bores and Cari Lynn Pisano.

The premiere will be attended by Maria Olsen, Emma Leigh Smith, Sandusky’s own Miss America Jackie Mayer (whose son Bill Townsend stars in the film) and the film’s stunt coordinator “The Franchise” Shane Douglas.  Also in attendance will be the Director Emily Lapisardi and her husband Executive Producer Cody Knotts.

The film is a female-centered horror story directed by Emily Lapisardi in her directorial debut.  Filmed in 2014 in Scottdale, PA, the story is set in the 1930′s and follows the life of Nellie, an orphan, who is brought to Gore Orphanage and discovers quickly that some things are worse than losing your family.

This is the fifth film produced by veteran independent producer Cody Knotts (Pro Wrestlers vs Zombies) and was filmed in Scottdale, PA with a cast of over 20 local children in addition to the actors listed above.   Knotts has worked with such horror icons as Doug Bradley and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper in the past.

The film was a husband and wife collaboration of Mr. Knotts and Ms. Lapisardi.  Mr. Knotts wrote the film to impress his then fiancée, who was inspired by a road sign in Ohio during travel for Knotts’ film Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies.

Here’s the trailer:

Submission: Melonhead Crybaby Bridge

8/26/14: Kristen and her friends visited the Kirtland Crybaby Bridge late one night, and got what they were looking for. Or did they? Check out her photo and decide for yourself.

I went with two other guys to cry baby bridge in Kirtland. We were teenagers looking for a scare or the truth, the usual teenage stuff.

I brought my camera with me and we stopped on the bridge. It was raining outside so we stayed in the car. We didn’t know exactly what would happen so most of us were nervous just being there at 10:30 at night. It was pitch black and you couldn’t see anything.

I took my camera and had the flash on. I snapped a few pictures all about the bridge from the car. I took one picture of the creek in the woods that were closed off to the public. I happened to catch a strange image in the picture. It was a white orb seemed to be moving even though I had the camera very still. And it had green tint in the middle of this orb.

I showed this to the two guys I was with and they freaked out and we left ASAP.

I wanted to see if anyone could debunk this photo but I cannot come up with any logical answers

When you go to Cedar Point this summer, be sure to check out its newest ghostly attraction.  If you are confused about which Cedar Point ghost we are talking about, Rich shares photos to help you identify the right one:

My wife took these photos at our stay at the Breakers Inn at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. In the first photo, a young boy is seen in the right side of the picture.  You can also see my wife’s reflection in the left. There was no little boy anywhere near her when she took this picture.

She then took another photo a few minutes later after she looked at the photo and saw what she captured.

Submission: Melon Head Files

4/2/09:  Dirt Lawyer waxes nostalgic as he fondly recalls Melon Head campfire tales and spooks.  Other story tellers may have their killer with a hook for a hand.  In NE Ohio, we have our Melon Heads.

In the 1960′s and early 1970′s our camp counselors at Red Raider Camp in Novelty/Russell Township on the western edge of Geauga County would horrify us with campfire tales of the Melon Heads when we’d camp on land owned by the Metallurgy Society. Continue reading

5/2/05: Dim the lights real low to get the full horrific effect of Kari’s Top Ten List of All Things Evil at Woolyburger Cemetery.

Hello, I have also visited the cemetery, which is also known as the Little Pennsylvania Cemetery. Wooly Burger is a name it gained over time due to the rumors of a large Big Foot-like creature living back there. I have never experienced a Big Foot encounter but I have definitely experienced many different things back there such as… Continue reading
