13 O’Clock Episode 139 – The Black Hope Curse

Hey, y’know in the movie Poltergeist, when all the trouble started because someone “only moved the headstones?” Well, who knew that it was based on a real event? We didn’t, until now. In the early 1980s, a couple bought a house in a suburb of Houston, Texas and started digging a pool in their backyard when what should they come across but a couple of bodies in pine boxes. Turns out that the entire neighborhood was built slap bang on top of a forgotten cemetery, and according to several residents of the street, the dead people were NOT happy about their former resting place being disturbed, because a shitload of paranormal activity allegedly ensued. Tune in to this fun, spooky exploration of the so-called Black Hope Horror and the bizarre phenomenon of abandoned cemeteries turning up in the darnedest places.
