If you were to visit Concord University, you would find a beautiful campus full of students who get along surprisingly well and one of the best learning environments you could possibly ask for. While this surface image of the campus life is certainly enticing and is usually enough to make one long to be a part of it all, what you don’t see is that this beautiful campus hides a dark secret. What many people on the outside don’t know, but many students have experienced first hand, is that Concord University is haunted.
The reports of paranormal activity mostly come from students who live in Sarvay and Wilson, which are both residence halls, and range from small things such as feelings and smells to major things such as full body apparitions and disembodied voices. One student from Wilson reports that they witnessed a figure of a girl in a white dress walk down the hallway and through a vending machine. In certain areas, including the elevator rooms in Wilson, there are intense feelings of uneasiness and feelings that you are not welcome there. In Sarvay, one student has reportedly felt as if there was someone in his room with him when his roommate wasn’t even there. He also says he has heard a child call his name and that once, while in the shower, he heard someone walk into the shower room and pull the window shut. He went to check it out and no one was in the room, in fact the door had not even been opened.
The activity, however, is not limited to these buildings. Throughout the school there have been reports of unexplained bad smells that seem to come out of no where. On the sixth floor in North Towers, residents claim that there are an increased amount of orbs in any photo taken. The paranormal also doesn’t seem to be bound to the physical world, but the mental world as well. Students who have never been depressed or had problems with anxiety suddenly appear to be overcome with feelings of fear and sadness. Some students even report having terrible and uncharacteristic nightmares about murdering other students or being murdered themselves.
Many students on the campus of Concord University in Athens, West Virginia have reported to have witnessed something out of the ordinary at one time or another but can these things be explained away by something natural? Some of it may have a natural explanation but some of it is too strange and out of the ordinary to explain away. Either way, these tales are chilling enough to keep one up at night. As to whether or not they’re true, you’ll have to decide for yourself.
Looking for a good movie to watch this Halloween season? Well, look no further. There are two groups of viewers out there, and there simply is no in between. The first group loves Fred and the second doesn’t care for his sense of humor. I fit into the first group, or at least I do for the Fred movies. I feel like there should be more movies like this, not in the aspect of how it is written or the storyboard, but more so relating to the style in which it is shot. It is very down to Earth and you get the feeling that this isn’t a very professional movie, it’s relatable! Before we go any further though, let me answer a few questions that you may have bouncing around in your Halloween excited head!
First, let me tell you that the part of Bertha is no longer played by Jennette McCurdy from the show iCarly. They have recase the part of Bertha for some unknown reason, but I don’t enjoy it when they switch out the roles of main characters. Second, the story is still very much like the first and you will notice elements that resemble the first Fred movie very closely. He still visits a shop where comedic humor is exchanged between him and the shop owners, Derf will appear for a moment in the movie just as he did in the first, and for those of you who don’t know, Derf is Freds imaginary opposite in regards to personality, and one last thing that you may want to know about is that this movie makes Fred seem more “unstable” than the first. While the wild imagination is a very important aspect to Fred, this movie takes it almost too far.
Overall, the movie is very entertaining and is definitely something that you will want to watch this Halloween season. It still has the same familiar humor of Fred that we have grown to love, a comical storyboard, and of course the wildly imaginative character of Fred. We recommend this movie as a good watch for this holiday season!
Are you looking for a frightening movie to delve into this Halloween? Well, Dream House cannot make the promise of scaring you, but it is a pretty good psychological thriller. I feel like this movie has been marketed the wrong way. It has been shown to the public in advertisements and trailers in the form of a scary movie that would be great for this time of year. While this will draw bigger crowds to the theater it does not really help the movie itself. I was expecting to be frightened and enjoy it as a Halloween movie, but instead I was presented with a thriller type movie.
The plot is interesting and surprisingly easy to follow, I have found that usually thriller type movies tend to lead you astray from the main plot, so in that aspect it was very accomplished. I liked how the entire movie was pretty interesting the whole way through. The characters were very well cast, and the resolution was clean and clear. As far as I am concerned this is a great movie to see, not so much if you are mainly focused on seeing a movie for the sole purpose of being scared.
