The Bell Witch: Monster Week Day 7

The Bell Witch sort of just sneaks in here under the rubric of "monster," mainly because in my mind it's "one of them there Unknowns," rather like the Jersey Devil, or Springheel Jack, or Mothman. Also because I've enjoyed this version produced by Ripley's Believe It Or Not!/True Demons And Monsters, with its wild interpretation of what was reported as an invisible phenomenon. What was "Old Kate"? A witch? A ghost? A ghost witch? It certainly acted like a poltergeist. Scree-hee-hee, everybody.

Brrr! Those "Ripley's" and "Boris Karloff Presents" comics still freak me out more than any horror movie. Scree-hee-hee indeed!

One of my favorite scary stories.
