Even though fictional horror can give us a scare every now and then it does have its downfall. Since this type of horror is based off a person’s imagination, it leaves room for us to realize that it’s something that is not real. Therefore the potential of the fictional horror we see in media such as books and movies coming for us in real life is slim to none. And this leaves the fear of it all to only last momentarily.
The type of horror that does leave a longer lasting impression on us are the ones that really happened. Throughout life, there have been accurate horrific accounts that occurred from inhuman types of murders to unimaginable sightings. So far, some of these mysteries have been solved but for others the answers still lie hidden out there in the world. It’s these types of folklore that will leave us with a more bone-chilling sensation over anything fictional.
If this is the type of horror that interests you than the Lore podcast is right for you. This podcast is written, hosted, and produced by Aaron Mahnke. Each episode explores a different folklore from history in a campfire style of story telling. Using facts and details to tell each story, Mr. Mahnke makes each episode frightening, engaging, and interesting to listen to. And recently due to the success of the Lore podcast it is now being turned into a television series that was picked up by Amazon Studios and is set to premiere sometime in 2017.
