It’s as if Marvel/Disney woke up and Dai we own allllllll this horror and supernatural stuff and we are not making any money on it. Maybe they will print a copy of the Darkhold we can buy.
I was originally going to do a post about the history of witches in Canada, but due to the fact that witchcraft in Canada is basically nonexistent, I’ll just tell you all about the one witch I could find information on!
Elizabeth Jane Barnes(or “Mother Barnes”) was born in Cork, Ireland some time between 1744 and 1800, nobody is really positive on the exact year.
What makes Elizabeth Barnes so special? She was apparently clairvoyant. She was known to have used her gift to solve mysteries, including a murder. Who needs Nancy Drew or Scooby Doo when you have Elizabeth Barnes, right? She was also apparently able to locate hidden treasure.
Elizabeth also used her gift to tell fortunes in her one room log cabin(which is still standing today.) She was very well known for this. People would travel hundreds of miles for her services, some would offer her large sums of money. She would never accept anything more than her standard rate of twenty-five cents though. One of her most noteworthy clients is rumored to have been Sir John A. Macdonald, the first Prime Minister of Canada. Elizabeth Barnes believed she got her gift from being the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter.
She was married twice. First to Sergeant Robert Harrison. They met in Ireland then emigrated to Cobourg, Ontario, where they eloped and had one son, Robert Harrison Jr. Unfortunately Robert died shortly after his son was born. About four years after that Elizabeth married her second husband David Barnes and settled near Plum Hollow. Her and David had ten children together, however a few of them died, leaving them with about eight children in total. After a few years together, David left her to be a shoemaker in Smith Falls, taking one of their sons with him… what a dick! He’s lucky child support didn’t exist back then! However, his absence resulted in Elizabeth using her gift to tell fourtunes so she could provide for her children, so I guess it all worked out in the end.
Now, like her year of birth, nobody actually knows when Elizabeth died, but she reportedly died when she was in her early nineties. She rests in an unmarked grave in Sheldon’s Corners, Ontario.
Hello, everyone! In case you haven’t heard, I’m the new co-host, Wednesday! I did my first show last night, but I just thought I should tell you all a bit about myself!
I’m nineteen and I live in Canada! The reason I took the cohosting position is actually because I want to get into radio broadcasting as a career. I’m hopefully gonna to be going to school for radio broadcasting next year or the year after.
My favourite horror related show is definitely Dexter, but the Walking Dead is a close second. As for horror movies the Fourth Kind, the Taking, Hatchet 3, and American Mary are on my list of favourites!
Anyway, hopefully that helped you all get to know me better! Remember to tune in Sunday nights at 12am!
On the show tonight the team behind Shadows in Salem a new collection of Short stories about one of the spookiest towns in America. We will also be debuting our new co-host tonight from Canada Wednesday, stay tuned for more information about her as the night goes on.
Music tonight will be ladies choice from both Amber Dawn Moore and Wednesday
I don’t know it looks all too familiar. I don’t have much more information than what you see here. Check it out.
It’s the Ultimate Survival Horror Experience in Last Friday! A hidden movement, hunt and deduction board game inspired by the popular “slasher” horror movie genre, Last Friday follows the bloody trail of a murderer who died and rose again. In the role of naive, young campers, the players are challenged to survive a long weekend of terror – while the undying psychopath secretly hides among them, anxious to exact revenge!
Tonight on the show we have Author Scott Bruce on with us, talking about his new book The Penguin book of the Undead. We were suppose to have one other guest but that may not be happening now. After Bruce we will be playing the music from SCREAM 1 and 2 on vinyl thru out the evening.

Comic Girl 19 makes a good fucking point. What is wrong with the people over at google? Do you have a youtube channel you can’t swear or show violent things or talk about drugs anymore and get ad revenue….what’s next no Monsters, vampires things related to death and homosexuality, this sounds like the Seduction of the Innocent bs all over again.

Hi every one hope people are reading this
We need a new co-host, we meaning ME…Chris the Host of Radio of Horror since October 2007. I need a new cohost badly its getting to the point I CANT do the show alone any more.
I had a co-host for two years and we got along most of the time. I really need someone who can help with social media and videos and getting new guests, writing new content and blog posts. I would like to expand the you tube channel in a lot of ways and I can’t do it alone. If you or someone you know can help that be great. I am going to continue searching in the New England area for a cohost. Now a Female cohost would be great cuz I would love to get the woman’s perspective on the horror industry and she can bring a unique voice to the show.
If you know of someone please pass this message along to them …thanks.
