So, happy halloween readers, I thought I’d share this with you. Yes it seemed appropriate to post this up seeing as though it’s the season of all things ghostly. I can assure each and everyone of you that this tale is genuine (its no creepy pasta made up shite, its my true account of what happened to us before my eldest was born)

Of course, I’m not expecting that you’ll believe, I know what happened and it was one of the creepiest paranormal experiences I’ve ever been witnessed to….

Slenderman, slenderman, where for art thou, slenderman…

10 Jun

Slenderman-irl

The first time I ever heard about the Slenderman, was when one of my kids mentioned it to me, and asked if I ever heard of the legend (as if it was real) To which I told him that it was probably made up, as I’d not heard about it at any time. He and my daughter point out refused to believe me and even now, they still hold a mixed view on just where they stand in regard to the whole thing.

Clown News: Creepy Staten Island clown, Manchester and Cambridge Clowns also on the loose!!

3 Apr

 

CLOWN NEWS

Here’s something I never thought I’d be revisting, but once again I’m back with more new Clown News, a feature that has been rather popular here on the Grinning Skull blog. Ok, so I thought as many did, that the clown craze was just a fad that had died out, but I was wrong.

Not to be out done by us Brits, across the pond, a familiar face seems to have taken a vacation to the US, and as you can plainly see, now the Staten Island area of NY has aquired their very own northampton clown lookie-likie! Could it be either that he’s taking a holiday, or that he has cloned (or should I say Clowned!) himself?

America beware, the clowns are coming!! (please note: this was trecently revealed as a publicity stunt, so still the UK seems the home of the creepy clowns!)

Creepy Staten Island clown spotted around borough, spooks residents  – NY Daily News.

Also back at the beginning of march, there was more clown madness in the North west of England, with even more reports of clowing around, another indication that things were far from over regarding creepy clown sightings…

And now there are reports of a new clown criminal on the scene, this time down south in Cambridge, will the craze ever stop? Everytime there seems to be a lull in the sightings, up pop more costumed weirdos! Full story on auntie beeb’s website here:

Even back in January, the MET revealed they were dealing with over a hundred clown related incidents…

Is this all an indication that we are about to see a resurgence of costumed chaos?

Only time will tell…..

CLOWN NEWS: Exclusive Photo proof of yesterday’s Clown encounter in Doncaster.

22 Nov

CLOWN NEWS

Is this the masked fiend that’s taken the mantle of the Woodlands Clown in Doncaster? As you remember I mentioned yesterday, about a sighting just round the corner from us here, and it caused a real hoo-har I can tell you, pretty soon after all the upset, we have managed to get a still of the culprit from the cctv. (it’s the best still I could get, he was running fast so not in the frame for long)

woodlandsclown1

This is a shot taken from the cctv footage of the escaping clown from last night. Alright, it’s not the clearest of images, but you can see that the person seen to run from the scene, wears a distinctive white clown mask. In the video footage (Which I will upload as soon as I convert the format over to a web uploadable one) he shoots off quickly from the scene.

From the looks, all the guy is wearing is a mask, no accompanying costume, and is seen dressed in a padded hooded jacket, and plain white trainers. In a strict sense we can only assume this event as a prank, given that they lacked the whole ensemble of matching clown gear. I would say this person probably is a teen (as they ran away really quick) and that they were between 5’6″ – 5’10 in height. I think that for people in the area of Woodlands, that they don’t have an actual creepy clown, rather a creep in a clown mask! At least if they are going to try doing the whole clown thing, to up their game somewhat, stop being a Tesco value jester, and put some proper effort into it, cheapskate!!

Seriously, wearing just a mask does not qualify as being a “proper” local scary clown! At least plenty of the other cut price pennywise’s go to the effort of actually dressing up for the part, any fool can stick a mask on and scare unsuspecting victims! Close but no cigar.

More clown snippets from the web now, more on other freaky fiends haunting other northern towns…

The Burnley clown in the news: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2511762/Another-creepy-clown-terrorises-town-Teachers-police-online-photos-mystery-figure-scare-children.html and http://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/news/10825032.Spot_the_Burnley_Clown_rumours_false/

The Barnsley Clown also in the news with a pic: http://www.barnsley-chronicle.co.uk/news/article/7235/scary-clown-seen-lurking-on-barnsley-streets giving rise to the rumours of Goldthorpe sightings being true.

Now a link for the Rotherham clown, he’s got a facebook page you know! https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-rotherham-clown/172582226274897

Please let me know of any links and interesting developments in this stupid clown saga…

CLOWN NEWS: South Yorkshire Police speak out about recent clown sightings

21 Nov

CLOWN NEWS

Police quell fears over Doncaster spooky clown ‘sightings’ – The Star.

In this article from the Star newspaper (and online) which states the Safer neighbourhoods team say:

“We are aware that there are a number of reports circulating on social media of a clown being seen on the streets of South Yorkshire.“There have been no actual sightings of a clown reported to police or any crimes committed.”

If this is “true”, then I find it hard to believe that no one has made any reports at all. I think its more likely that they are trying to downplay the clown crisis, just to stop the fear and worry. Methinks a request for information (freedom of information and all that) will be in order, just to see exactly how many reports SYP have recieved about it.

With the uproar of tonights clown sighting around here, not only were paramedics alerted, but also police officers, already with this fact, the statement is already false! Even my mother-in-law rang up to enquire about her concern when the thing started, and I also imagine that others have done so as well! Wait till some old dear gets a shock from a clown and keels over dead? Just harmless fun then is it?

Obviously people are scared, understandably so, its not everyday a costumed psycho taps on your windows dressed as a clown! Yes I know that the rumours are just that, rumours, but no one can deny that somethings going on. the residents round here were almost getting pitchforks and flaming torches to hunt down and lynch the culprit (which in today’s fiasco, there were two occasions to the same place, either the same one or there is another working in pairs etc.)

I still think its just a load of publicity seeking pranksters, scaring folks for fun. But even so, the intent to scare and harass must be considered some type of criminal act? How police can say no crime has occurred is strange, surely tresspass at least, they seem to have no trouble usually making up stuff to charge people with, why not now?

This article here detailing the Grimsby clown is a new one for the list, and a bit more well researched than usual, only thing is if that picture is the actual Scunthorpe clown, he’s not even scary! It’s like Mr Tumble has just raided a charity shop! Admittedly the Market Rasen clown is more creepy, but it seems that at this rate every town and city in the UK will end up with a clown, all you need is some silly fucker with a £19.99 clown outfit and a latex mask off ebay!
