EPISODE 131
HALLOWEEN AT THE BEACH ON LOCATION

T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas stayed in the beach-resort town of spooky Cape May, New Jersey and recorded live the What Are You Afraid Of? Horror & Paranormal Halloween Special 2019 from the haunted Marquis De Lafayette Hotel. Cape May is one of the most haunted towns in the world, and the horror authors bring you two hours of local ghost stories they collected in town. Fox arrived early and spent two days listening to ghost stories from the locals—stories such as the faceless ghost and shadow man of Congress Hall, the gray lady of Washington Street Mall and the spirit children who still run in the halls of the Marquis De Lafayette Hotel—and Phil and Fox hardly scratched the surface of the haunted history of this two century old Victorian town. Cape May was a wonderful place to visit during October, and the seaside town celebrates Halloween with stage shows, events for children and ghost story tours. Fox & Phil record the show from the haunted Marquis De Lafayette Hotel, where many of the town residents came to watch and share their paranormal experiences. Fox plays the ghost story from his visit to General Lee’s battlefield in Gettysburg, narrated by English folksinger David Walton, and Phil’s charming horror story, The Pumpkin Carvers. Plus some creepy music to set the mood. It’s been a compelling end to our fourth season of What Are You Afraid Of? Horror & Paranormal Show, and we celebrated Halloween this year in style with two hours of local ghost stories in haunted Cape May, New Jersey.

Episode 130: 
Haunting of Heather Taddy

As we countdown to Halloween 2019, we’ve featured a variety of horror authors, television actors and paranormal investigators. Heather Taddy joins us on Episode 130 to share her years of private and televised ghost and alien hunting. Heather Taddy’s noticeable enthusiasm for the odd and unknown landed her a role as a field investigator and documentarian on 4 seasons of A&E’s Paranormal State. And now she searches for evidence of extraterrestrials with Chuck Zukowski on Travel Channel’s Destination America. She shares her inspiration to seek out the paranormal, her scariest encounter with a dark spirit and her views on modern paranormal investigation. We also play a song, Lull, from Heather’s Pittsburgh band, punk-rock, “Glow Worm.”

Then English folksinger David Walton narrates T. Fox Dunham’s dark tale set during World War II. “Potentia.” Published in the anthology Monsterthology II from Zombie Works Publications, the story tells the last encounter between Victor Frankenstein and his creation in a death camp, where the scientist is working to give the Reich immortality.

Next week, listen for our Halloween at the Beach Special from Cape May, New Jersey!

EPISODE 128:
HALLOWEEN HAUNTED HAYRIDE

 

As Halloween 2019 approaches, beloved friend and brilliant author of dark stories, PD Cacek, returns to celebrate the spooky season with writer T. Fox Dunham. Trish is a friend, sensitive and author. Flame Tree Press is releasing her next book, 'Second Lives', and she comes on to talk about her insights into writing, the elements of horror fiction and ghost stories and to talk about how she gets ready for Halloween. She also shares some ghost stories including the tale of extra 'extra' convict at Philadelphia’s infamously haunted Eastern Penn State Penitentiary. English folksinger David Walton narrates a ghost story sent in by a friend of the show from Texas called The Gold is Mine about a young boy facing supernatural forces in his new family house. And as a special treat, T. Fox Dunham interviews one of the resident ghouls at the Bucks County Sleepy Hollow Haunted Acres—a threefold haunt that includes a hayride, corn maze and the haunted abode, Malfate Manor. Dark powers cursed Gilchrist to serve the household after death, and he comes on to lament his fate and talk about one of the favorite Halloween haunts visited by Fox and his wife, Allison.


We’re counting down to Halloween 2019 with lots more spooky to go!

EPISODE 127:
“UP TO MY ASS IN ALLIGATORS” – THE JOE R. LANSDALE STORY


Author Joe R. Lansdale defined modern genre fiction. Joe’s won multiple awards. He’s author of the movie Bubba-Hotep, Sundance Channel’s Hap & Leonard and written a ton of novels. He joins T. Fox Dunham and Phil Thomas on episode 137 to talk about his writing, career and life. Joe started writing at the age of twenty-one and failed enough to drive anyone off a cliff. But he kept going, kept writing, and with each story, he learned. On the show, he talks about his early work, the discouraging process of starting as a professional author and how he found amazing success. Joe is an inspirational man who not only writes compelling stories but seeks to share his knowledge. This is one of our best episodes, and you don’t want to miss it, especially if you write. Also, David Walton narrates a ghost story sent in by a show fan in Ontario about an encounter with the restless dead in a cemetery. And finish, T. Fox Dunham narrates a classic Joe Lansdale short story about a guy who ends up at the center of shrinking apocalypse: “Shrinkage.” Joe R Lansdale joins Phil and Fox on their countdown to Halloween 2019.

EPISODE 126:
FRIDAY THE 13th THE SERIES - THE EPISODE

“Lewis Vendredi made a deal with the devil to sell cursed antiques . . .” It was on Saturday afternoons. We watched it when we were kids, fascinated by the occult horror. Three friends track down cursed objects to undo dark magic. Every object—a creepy doll, a scythe or playhouse—granted its owner powers but always at a terrible price.

Horror authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas interview actor and filmmaker Steve Monarque who played Johnny Ventura on Friday the 13th the Series. Johnny joins them to talk about his time as the young artifact hunter and his career as an actor and filmmaker. Steve created Monavision Films, and he’s gone on to several films. He’s also a talented musician, and we play one of his songs “All U Have 2 Do” from his band, The Monarques. Our English folksinger, David Walton, narrates a ghost legend from Yorkshire, England about a cursed chair that brings death on any who sit in it: The Death Chair of Thomas Busby. We’re counting down to Halloween 2019, and Fox and Phil will be at the Marquis de Lafayette Hotel in Cape May, New Jersey on the evening of October 25th to do their Halloween special.

EPISODE 124:
HALLOWEEN CANDY'S ALREADY ON THE SHELF!!!

 

The stores are already selling Halloween candy. It’s really messing with authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas! But hey, they love Halloween, so time to start the autumn season with a new episode of What Are You Afraid Of? Horror & Paranormal Show.
Phil and Fox hang out and chat about Halloween, candy, their new content, Phil’s new film project and a ghost story sent in by Dave Brahler. Dave was a guest on episode 78: The Haunted Caller, when he told the story of several spirits who were haunting his family in Indiana. Well, the ghosts are back, and this time they sound ‘inhuman’ or ‘demonic’. English folksinger David Walton narrates the story of a strange weekend when Dave’s family was visited by an old man who may not have been human at all. The hosts also share another story from Mister Ghosts of Gettysburg, Mark Nesbitt. Mark shares the haunted history of Springs Avenue in Gettysburg including spirits of civil war soldiers and the ghosts of victims who burned to death in a fire. And then, more clown news! A man dressed as a clown ruins a cruise when he dressed up for a fancy-dress party that was canceled. This was a drunken-clown throw down. Halloween is coming, and the hosts are doing extra episodes to get you in the mood for the spooky season.

EPISODE 123:
ALIENS WANT OUR COWS!!!

 

“There’s a lot we don’t know, not only about our planet but what’s happening outside of our planet—other dimensions and such.” – Chuck Zukowski, lead investigator from Travel Channel’s show, Alien Highway. Authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas are back with episode 123: ALIENS WANT OUR COWS! And for some mysterious reason, they do! Aliens keep mutilating innocent bovines, but we’ve got the man to uncover the dastardly extraterritorial plan. We play part two of our interview with lifelong alien hunter, Chuck Zukowski. You can listen to part one on episode 122. Chuck discusses cattle mutilations, his investigation of aliens, the different kind of aliens out there and his new show, Alien Highway. And he shares some insights into the notorious cave incident on the show, when he and his team got close to uncovering alien artifacts in a lost family cave, and then the owner shut down the investigation right before they found the answer. But they will be back! We also play another ghost story from the New Jersey shore, this time the spooky tales of the ghosts of Higbee Beach in Cape May, New Jersey. Phantom train tracks, a forgotten tomb and the ghost of a dark figure with a dog can be found on this beautiful beach. And our beloved English folksinger, David Walton, narrates the true story of Chuck Zukowski’s attempt to communicate with aliens and his terrifying results. There are creatures in other dimensions just below the surface, watching us. We thank Chuck Zukowski for talking to us. Check out his new show on The Travel Channel, Alien Highway.

EPISOE 121:
TORMENTED SPIRITS & AUTHORS

Writers are a tormented lot. We should know. We’re both authors. On Episode 121 of What Are You Afraid Of? we talk to some tormented spirits and authors. Edgar Allan Poe, tormented writer and poet, haunts the state of Maryland—the place of his birth and death. Shortly after his strange passing—the circumstances have never been entirely explained—fans began seeing his mournful spirit manifesting in his family’s home, at his favorite local tavern and especially in the catacombs where his body was entombed and moved twice. T. Fox Dunham shares the true ghost story that accounts the many visitations of his spirit and strange customs that have become associated with the tragic author including ‘The Toaster!” For the last sixty years, a phantom figure has been seen at his grave toasting Poe with his favorite cognac. Some think this spirit is Poe come back to mourn for himself and the women he loved. Then Fox interviews Crystal Lake Publishing author, Mark Allan Gunnells—no association to the Allan in Poe’s name he claims. Mark talks about his long obsession with writing horror, his new work, and he shares advice with new authors who are trying to get published. English folksinger David Walton narrates his poem, End of the World, and his short story, Go to Sleepy Little Baby from his new collection, Book Haven and Other Curiosities, now available. Fox closes the show with the song Through the Darkness from the talented Jeremy Allingham.

EPISODE 120:
THE DEAD STILL PARTY IN 
NEW ORLEANS

T. Fox Dunham returns from New Orleans with new ghost stories and interviews! New Orleans is the ghost city of the south, a city rich with culture and characters. In addition to the delicious cuisine, history, culture and architecture, the Big Easy is also one of the most haunted places in the world. Over the next several episodes, author T. Fox Dunham will be sharing stories of the living and the dead encountered on his trip—stories of voodoo, torture, lost souls, haunted musicians and mystical monsters. T. Fox Dunham and Phil Thomas begin episode 120 talking about the trip, then Fox shares a story about the oldest cemetery in New Orleans, St. Louis Cemetery One, known for its iconic tombs. Because the city was built on land below sea level, they can’t bury their dead, so they’ve built cities of mausoleums, necropolises where spirits still roam, drawn out by the music of the French Quarter. Then he tells Phil all about the various monsters that terrorize the bayou including the tale of the bright white Rougarou—a were-beast that punishes Catholics who violate their Lent vows. The hosts share some music from local performers including a special song sung about Fox to his wife Allison, which she dreaded! Video on the website. And they play jazz from the band Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Excited yet? Well, this is just the beginning of our summer episodes featuring the city. The hosts will be sharing more stories about one of the most haunted cities in the world: the beautiful and arduous city of New Orleans.

MERCY

(A Horror Medical Thriller Novel from Blood Bound Books.)

 

FANGORIA gives MERCY 3.5 out 4 Skulls – “Dunham has channeled his many brushes with the other side into the exquisitely rendered, lyrical supernatural hospital thriller MERCY.“ READ FULL REVIEW HERE.

 

“Part medical horror, part supernatural suspense, MERCY is a hard-hitting fever dream of a novel. I enjoyed the hell out of it!” ~ Tim Waggoner, author of The Way of All Flesh and Eat The Night

“Pain and poetry flow in equal measure through these pages. Dunham’s prose strikes deep and hits all the right notes. MERCY is unforgettably vivid.” ~ David Dunwoody, author of Hell Walks and The 3 Egos

William Saint is dying of cancer. On most days death seems like a humane alternative to the treatment. Stricken with fever, William is rushed to Mercy—notorious as a place to send the sickest of the poor and uninsured to be forgotten—and finds the hospital in even worse condition than his previous visit. The grounds are unkempt, the foundation is cracking, and like the wild mushrooms sprouting from fissures of decay around it, something is growing inside the hospital. Something dark. It’s feeding on the sickness and sustaining itself on the staff, changing them. And now it wants Willie.

This was my death.
Life is an addiction.

Love is the only force that is real. Read . . . and understand what I saw. I put it in metaphor. You do not understand what you do not understand.

EPISODE 113:
FOLK DEVILS & MORAL PANIC

 

On episode 113 of What Are You Afraid Of? Horror & Paranormal Show, authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas discuss an old concept in folk culture called moral panic. The most recent manifestation is the Momo Challenge. Momo is a horrific bird statue that first appeared in Japan, and according to the new urban legend, she assaults children and advises them to commit acts of self-harm. Momo is the most recent folk devil—the central antagonist causing moral panic—but the phenomenon goes back to the Salem Witch Trials, even further. In particular, Fox and Phil have kept their audience updated on evil clown sightings, and they discuss other relevant trends such as the satanic panic of the 1980s, the spurious demonic nature of Dungeons & Dragons and other events in hysterical society.

Fox also plays the last part in his paranormal trilogy about Philadelphia’s most notorious haunted house, The Baleroy Mansion. The final chapter tells of dark heart of the house: the blue room and the curse of an antique chair. Anyone who sits in this chair soon dies, joining the choir of agitated souls who still roam the mansion. Then the hosts finish the show talking about A Time for Violence—a new noir and horror anthology soon released by Close to the Bone with stories from T. Fox Dunham, Chris Roy, Joe R. Lansdale, Richard Chizmar, Tony Knighton, Isobel Blackthorn, John A. Russo and many more out on May 1st. Preorder on Amazon today! The band Titus 12 closes with their song from Pick Up Natty Red: A Ghost Story.

EPISODE 105: CHRISTMAS HAS A DARKSIDE

WHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF? 
HORROR & PARANORMAL SHOW

 

Christmas has a dark side.

During the holidays in the days before television, people gathered to share food, drink, and a glowing fire, and to entertain themselves by competing through storytelling. Ghost stories won the night. Consider this. When winter came, food ran low, the cold threatened and disease killed many, often taking your loved ones. You missed them at Christmas, so the holidays used to be a mournful time. Eerie tales were popular, and if Halloween was the start of ghost story season then it peaked at Christmas. So what a perfect time for a new episode of What Are You Afraid Of? To celebrate mid-winter, horror authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas celebrate tales of monsters and the supernatural. Fox has researched several Philadelphia haunted houses and has written an account of a notoriously spooky mansion in Chestnut Hill: The Baleroy Mansion. English folksinger David Walton narrates part one of these stories about the myriad spirits who inhabit this beautiful home including a ghost boy who appears to workers and a mother who refuses to stop giving advice even from the afterlife. Then, the hosts talk about the many horror movies set during Christmas including the classic story of holiday mayhem, Gremlins! Little green monsters torment a small American town, and they burn most of it down on Christmas Eve. This movie is considered a Christmas classic, watched by many. They pay homage by discussing the history and trivia of Gremlins. Remember the three rules? The hosts also play some funny holiday songs including the ballad of a frustrated neighbor forced to look at a hideous blow-up Santa. Then, Fox shares some of the rich history of the mid-winter holidays from the ancient holiday of Yule to the evolution of Christmas in the United States. So, we wish you happy holidays and remind you to indulge this dark and cold season. Christmas has a dark side—or the lights wouldn’t be so bright.

The mid-winter season has a tradition of scary stories and legends, and we’re back to share them! Fox isn’t dead! And he’s not a zombie, we swear. After a forced break while Fox dealt with pneumonia, What Are You Afraid Of? Horror & Paranormal Show returns with a holiday-themed episode, featuring ghost stories, silly tunes and noir fiction. Horror authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas catch up then discuss the dark legends and customs that evolved in Europe during the mid-winter holidays—and these are some horrible and twisted Christmas stories told to children. Don’t be naughty or else! Cannibals. Giant cats. And trolls just to name a few Yule ghouls. Fox narrates a true ghost story about the classic haunting of an old apartment building. Horror author Todd Keisling, author of The Smile Factory, shares his paranormal experiences at 146 West High Street. We play two silly holiday songs from British musician Simon Panrucker—composer for several cartoons and one of the hosts of The Past Present Future Funcast. We play his holiday carol, Leave My Nuts Alone! The show closes with a holiday noir story written by celebrated crime and horror author, Andy Rausch. Santa’s Little Helper is a sardonic tale about a burglar and a little boy who thinks he’s Santa, narrated by our amazing David Walton. Yeah. We’re terrible people! But as we learned, the mid-winter holidays have always been a time of ghost stories and dark tales, and we invite you to celebrate the creepy side of Yule with us. Or the Krampus will stick you in a sack and beat you with a stick.

Oh . . . and leave his nuts alone!

EPISODE 103

POE'S REVENGE

 

Winter is upon us. We jumped autumn and went right to blizzard! Nasty time to drive but great time to listen to some spooky stories while you’re stuck in the house with some hot apple cider. Horror authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas continue their quest to explore the darkness. After chatting for a bit, T. Fox Dunham shares a true ghost story about a haunted library in Easton, Pennsylvania. This library has several floors for books and a crypt for the dead. The Haunted Library was researched and written by Mark Nesbitt: Mr. Ghosts of Gettysburg himself. Then Fox shares news about a British spiritual counselor who after dating ghosts for the last twenty years has finally settled on one lucky Australian spirit to marry. How does ‘Till Death Do Us Part’ work when you’re marrying someone dead? And Fox is pleased to interview female horror author and member of the Horror Writers Association, Amy Grech! She is a burning talent full of life and energy, and she talks about her work and inspiration. British folksinger David Walton narrates her ghost story, Raven’s Revenge. In this tale, neighbors hold a séance to contact the angry ghost of a murdered tenant in their building, and a phantom raven travels from the other side to reveal the murderer—a ghost story written in the spirit of Edgar Allen Poe. Thanx Amy! 

It’s getting dark early now, and so are we. What Are You Afraid Of? Horror & Paranormal Show.

ZOMBIES STRIKE BACK

Halloween can’t happen without zombies and zombie movies! So for our 100th episode of What Are You Afraid Of? Horror & Paranormal Show, the zombies rise again. After dying due to media saturation, the re-animated strike back, returning to their rightful place in horror. Authors T. Fox Dunham, member of the Horror Writers Association, and Phil Thomas, author and filmmaker, celebrate their beloved undead by interviewing an awesome guest, director and scriptwriter of the social satire horror film, “Zombies of Mass Destruction”, Kevin Hamedani. Born of Persian heritage, Kevin suffered prejudice in America after 9-11 and the Iraq War. In response, this brilliant filmmaker followed in the footsteps of legendary director George Romero, who created “Night of the Living Dead” as a commentary on the Vietnam War. He tells Fox and Phil about the process of filming, his career, inspirations and his love of horror movies. Kevin gives advice to new filmmakers and talks about the brief haunting of an old apartment. T. Fox Dunham also brings you a new true ghost story, “The Hungry Ghosts of Philadelphia.” The city moved the cemetery, dumping the bodies but the ghosts remained and hunger for cheesesteaks and coffee. And as a special event, T. Fox Dunham narrates one of his unpublished zombie stories set during World War II in the Pacific Theater: “The Return to Seagaia.” The war dead of Japan try to come home. To close the show, the punk group, The Zombie Dandies, play their song, “Zombie Mass Shootings”—a love song to all the great zombie films.

EPISODE 80: LIFE AFTER LIFE

On the first episode of What Are You Afraid Of? Horror & Paranormal Show's new series, Psychic Spring, hosts T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas interview the astounding & charismatic medium, Carolyn Clapper. Carolyn, or the ‘Next World Medium.' Carolyn is an evidential medium, psychic and medical intuit. She not only channels loved ones (who can be quite pushy to come through!) but also reads your body to help diagnosis elusive health issues. Fox & Phil ask her questions about her process and history. She became a psychic after a near-death experience caused by a serious infection, and during the reading, some of Fox’s connections reach out to him! Carolyn is a remarkable and beautiful person with a powerful gift, and she shares it with Fox & Phil on Episode 80: Life After Life, the first in their new series featuring international psychics. Musical guest Zapa is back with a song from his new album, Triangle, which sets the mood, and the Cranky Old Hag, paranormal author Kerri Thomas, shares with us one of her many ghost stories, Ghostly Retaliation. A ghost aids a nurse in an unfair work situation. This is one of several stories that Kerri, author of The Haunting of Family, will be sharing with us in future shows, read by British folksinger, David Walton. Need a little reassurance that there’s life after death? Carolyn Clapper will comfort you on episode 80: Life After Life.

DEMONS OF VERMONT

 

T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas continue their tribute to Women in Horror Month in February by featuring paranormal author & demonic victim, Kristel Smart, author of the terrifying account of her family’s demonic oppression in Hinesberg House, Virginia. Her story was also featured as an episode of Syfy’s Paranormal Witness, episode 411 When Hell Freezes Over.

Kristel joins Phil & Fox as a co-host. Her story begins, as most do, when she, her daughter, her sister and childhood friend all move in together in a beautiful rustic house--their dream house, promising a bright new future. Strange events occur right away: phantom growling, weird telephone calls with no answer, children laughing in the night and dark shadows lurking—shadows with will and purpose. The air reeks of sulfur, and electrical problems cost them a fortune. The inhuman entity hurts the health of Kristel’s daughter and terrorizes them during an ice storm. At night, it is strongest.

Our British folksinger, David Walton, reads excerpts from some of Kristel’s nocturnal visits from In Stone, which is available at Amazon. David also sings a classic British folksong, the Cruel Mother, about who woman who is haunted by the children she murdered in order to seek a new husband.

We continue with our special feature on Women in Horror over the next few months with more artists, authors, musicians and those deserving of promotion.
