Location - The Antarctic
Species - Humanoid
Habitat - Antarctic waters
The legend of the Ningen began after rumors circulated in Japan about the existence of gigantic humanoid lifeforms inhabiting the icy Antarctic seas. Reportedly observed on multiple occasions by crew members of government-operated “whale research” ships.
These so called “Ningen” are said to be completely white in colour with an estimated length of 20 to 30 meters. Eyewitnesses describe them as having a human-like shape, often with legs, arms, and even five finger hands. Other times they are described as having fins or a large mermaid-like tail instead of legs. The only visible features are the eyes and mouth. According to one account, crew members on deck observed what they initially thought was a foreign submarine in the distance. When they approached, however, it became clear from the irregular shape of the thing that it was not man-made — it was alive. The creature quickly disappeared under the water.
To date, no solid evidence has been presented to confirm the existence of the Ningen. The government is believed to have kept detailed records of the sightings, but they have released no information to the public and have reportedly instructed eyewitnesses to remain silent.
This photo is of a female serial killer named Ruth Snyder being executed by electric chair, and is one of the most famous execution photos ever taken.
Ruth Snyder began an affair with Henry Judd Gray, a married corset salesman, in 1925. Henry and Ruth began to plan the murder of her husband, Albert, although Henry appeared to be unsure of the idea. Ruth’s vendetta against her husband began over him insisting on hanging up a photo of his late fiancee, Jessie Guishard, on the wall of their first home, although she had been dead for ten years.
Ruth persuaded her husband to purchase insurance, but with the assistance of an insurance agent “signed” a $45,0000 life insurance policy that paid extra if an unexpected act of violence killed the victim. According to her accomplice Henry Judd Gray, Ruth had attempted to kill her husband 7 previous times before, all of which he survived. On March 20th, 1927, the couple garroted Albert Snyder and stuffed his nose full of chloroform-soaked rags, then staged his death as a burglary gone wrong. Detectives at the scene noted that the burglar left little evidence of breaking into the house; moreover, that the behavior of Mrs. Snyder was inconsistent with her story of a terrorized wife witnessing her husband being killed.
Then, the police found the property Ruth claimed had been stolen—still in the house, but hidden. A breakthrough came when a detective found a paper with the letters “J.G.” on it (it was a memento Albert Snyder had kept from former love Jessie Guishard), and asked Ruth about it. A flustered Ruth’s mind immediately turned to her lover, whose initials were also “J.G.,” and she asked the detective what Judd Gray had to do with this. It was the first time Gray had been mentioned, and the police were instantly suspicious. Gray was found upstate, in Syracuse. He claimed he had been there all night, but eventually it turned out a friend of his had created an alibi, setting up Gray’s room at a hotel. Gray proved far more forthcoming than Ruth about his actions. He was caught and returned to Jamaica, Queens and charged along with Ruth Snyder.
Ruth Snyder was sent to Sing Sing Prison in Ossining, New York. At the murder trial of Albert Snyder, Ruth and Henry turned on eachother, contending the other was responsible for killing Albert Snyder, they were both convicted and sentenced to death.
Ruth Snyder became the first woman executed in Sing Sing since 1899. She went to the electric chair only moments before her former lover. Her execution was caught on camera by a photographer, Tom Howard, who’s camera was strapped to his ankle. He took this photo as the electricity was powering through her body.

Location - Florida, North Carolina & Arkansas, USA.
Species - Hominid Cryptid
Habitat - Swamps
The Skunk Ape (also known as the Swamp Ape, Florida Bigfoot and Myakka Ape), is a cryptid that is said to inhabit Florida, as well as North Carolina and Arkansas, although reports from Florida are more common. Reports of the Skunk Ape were particularly common in the 1960’s and 1970’s. In the fall of 1974, numerous sightings were reported in suburban neighbourhoods of Dade County, Florida, of a large, foul smelling, hairy, ape-like creature, which ran upright on two legs.
In 2000, a mysterious woman sent two photos to the Sheriff’s Department in Sarasota County, Florida and wished to remain anonymous. A letter was received with pictures from the unnamed woman, who claimed the picture was taken in her backyard after the creature snuck in to steal apples. Professionals later discovered the photo was taken next to the Myakka River.
Above is one of the photos the woman took, and to this day, the photographer remains unknown. Sightings of the Skunk Ape are still being reported.
The possession of Anneliese Michel.
Born - 21st September 1952, Lieblfing, Belgium, West Germany
Died - 1st July 1976, aged 23.
Cause of Death - Starvation and dehydration.
Known for - Supposed demonic possession
When Anneliese Michel was 16, she had her first epileptic attack and was diagnosed with temporal lobe epilepsy. She was later admitted to a psychiatric hospital after suffering depression.
In June 1970, Anneliese suffered a third seizure in the psychiatric facility where she had been staying, she also started to talk about “devil faces” that she said she saw at various times of the day. By 1973, she began hallucinating whilst praying, and complained about hearing voices telling her that she was “damned” and that she would “rot in hell.”
Her treatment at the psychiatric hospital did not improve her health, and her depression only worsened. Anneliese became increasingly frustrated with medical intervention and became intolerant of sacred places and objects, such as the crucifix. Being a devout Catholic, Anneliese began to attribute her behaviour to demonic possession.
Anneliese travelled to San Damiano with a family friend, who concluded that Anneliese was indeed suffering from demonic possession because she was unable to walk past a crucifix and refused to drink the water of a holy spring. Both she and her family became convinced, and contacted several priests asking for an exorcism. The priests declined their wishes, telling them that Anneliese needed to continue medical treatment, and informed the family that exorcisms required the bishops permission. Anneliese worsened physically and displayed aggression, even going as far as harming herself, drinking her own urine and eating insects.
The priest Ernst Alt, who they met, on seeing Anneliese declared she didn’t “look like an epileptic” and that he didn’t see her have any seizures. Ernst Alt believed Anneliese was, in fact, suffering from demonic possession and urged the local bishop to allow an exorcism.
In September 1975, Bishop Josef Stangl granted the priest Arnold Rentz to exorcise Anneliese, but ordered total secrecy. Renz performed the first session on 24th September 1975 and her parents stopped seeking medical treatment and relied solely on the exorcism rites. 67 exorcism sessions, one or two each week, lasting up to four hours, were performed over ten months in 1975 - 1976. Anneliese began talking increasingly about “dying to atone for the wayward youth of the day and the apostate priests of the modern church”, and she refused to eat towards the end.
On the 1st July 1976, Anneliese Michel died in her home. The autopsy report stated the cause was malnutrition and dehydration because of being in a semi-starvation state for almost a year while the rites of exorcism were being performed.
This case of a demonic possession possession is one of the most famous cases in the world, the movie ‘The Exorcism of Emily Rose’ is based on Anneliese Michel.
Sanzhi Pod City.
Location - Sanzhi District, New Taipei City, Taiwan.
Status - Demolished, once abandoned
Reason for closure - Investment losses, deaths
Population - 0
Dates Active - 1978 - 1980
The Sanzhi Pod City (or the Sanzhi UFO houses) was intended to be a vacation resort and marketed towards U.S military officers coming from their East Asian postings.
Construction began in 1978 until 1980 when the project was abandoned due to investment losses and even creepier, several car crash deaths during construction. The strange futuristic buildings were left to decay.
Many people said that the deaths were due to the pod houses being built on a former burial ground for Dutch soldiers, there are no named architects either.
The abandoned, creepy pod city stood until 2010 when it was finally demolished. It is said that the ghosts of the people who died in the car crash accidents haunted the no longer existing Pod City.
Location - Planterwald, Berlin, Germany, EU.
Status - Defunct, abandoned, partially standing
Reason for closure - Unable to pay debts owed
Dates Active - 1969 - 2002
Spreepark was a theme park which opened in 1969, owned by Norbert Witte and his family. The park was a huge success, reaching up to 1.5 million visitors per annum.
Since 1999 the park has had to cope with large debts, which forced the park to raise the admission fee. The raise in fee’s and a lack of parking spaces contributed to a drop in visitor numbers until in 2001 only 400,000 people entered the park.
In 2001, Spreepark announced they were insolvent (unable to pay the debts owed). On the 18th January, 2002, Norbert Witte, his family and co-workers moved to Lima, Peru, taking six of the parks attractions with them in hopes of starting a new theme park in Peru.
Since 2002 the park has not been open for visitors, in August 2002, Spreepark was declared completely insolvent. The debts were so high (11,000,000 euros) that the park was allowed to fall into complete decay and disrepair.
The ruins of Spreepark still partially stand today, the only remaining ride that fully stands is the ferris wheel, which hasn’t been operated since the parks closure. The remains of the other attractions can still be found on site.
