Caitlin Doughty from the YouTube channel Ask a Mortician discusses the history of death masks. I was particularly fascinated by how they were linked to the modern wax museum.
The Screaming Tunnel is a small limestone tunnel, running underneath what once was the Grand Trunk Railway lines (now the Canadian National Railways), located in the northwest corner of Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.
A local legend recounts that the tunnel is haunted by the ghost of a young girl, who after escaping a nearby burning farm building with her clothing ablaze, died within its walls. Several variants of the legend exist locally, one version has the girl set on fire by her enraged father after he loses custody of his children after a nasty divorce. Another tells of a young girl being raped inside the tunnel and her body burned to prevent any evidence from being found. All versions of these legends ends with the girl screams filling up the tunnel as she was burning to death.

Feast your eyes on some gore to help you through the week. My favorite is the frozen face that gets smashed against the counter.
When my good buddy sat me down with a few friends to watch The Ruins, I had no idea what to expect, and, if you have not seen it yet, I recommend you do your best to go into it knowing as little as possible about the plot. What I liked about the movie was that it offered good gore along with a good premise. I highly recommend it.
I have always been intrigued by the power of telekinesis. Although some of the clips in this video are fakes, like 6, 1 and most likely 4, they are still fun to watch. I especially like 7! So cool!
