Excerpt: Mysterious Universe 

The Mysterious Ghost Ship of the Arctic | Mysterious Universe

“The Baychimo was obviously tougher than its captain had given it credit for, because it did indeed survive the winter, and began its ascent into the annals of sea legend. People began to report seeing the ship cruising about the cold north Atlantic waters, totally intact and seemingly unmanned. The first such sighting came when a dog sledder heading for Nome, Alaska, spotted the ship adrift near shore, and the number of sightings took off from there. The path of the Baychimo was unpredictable and erratic, with the ship sometimes being seen near shore but at other times far out to sea, and it was sighted alternately in both open water and trapped within ice, in wildly disparate locations.”

Sightings

  • A few days after the Baychimo had disappeared on 24 November 1931, the ship was found 45 mi (72 km) south of where she was lost, but was again ice-packed.
  • After several months, she was spotted again but about 300 mi (480 km) to the east.
  • In March of the following year, she was seen floating peacefully near the shore by Leslie Melvin, by a man traveling to Nome with his dog sled team.
  • A few months after that, she was seen by a company of prospectors.
  • In August 1932, she was boarded by a 20-man Alaskan trading party off Wainwright, Alaska.[3]
  • March 1933, she was found by a group of Eskimos who boarded her and were trapped aboard for 10 days by a freak storm.
  • August 1933, the Hudson’s Bay Company heard she was still afloat, but was too far a-sea to salvage.[3]
  • July 1934, she was boarded by a group of explorers on a schooner.
  • September 1935, she was seen off Alaska’s northwest coast.[3]
  • November 1939, she was boarded by Captain Hugh Polson, wishing to salvage her, but the creeping ice floes intervened and the captain had to abandon her. This is the last recorded boarding of the Baychimo.[4]
  • After 1939, she was seen floating alone and without crew numerous times, but had always eluded capture.
  • March 1962, she was seen drifting along the Beaufort Sea coast by a group of Inuit.
  • She was found frozen in an ice pack in 1969, 38 years after she was abandoned. This is the last recorded sighting of the Baychimo.
  • In 2006, the Alaskan government began work on a project to solve the mystery of “the Ghost Ship of the Arctic” and locate the Baychimo, whether still afloat or on the ocean floor. She has not been found yet.

A list of SCARY movies you have to watch!

The Amityville Horror.

The-Amityville-Horror-House   I saw this one as a kid after reading the book. You have to over look the dated clothes but the movie scared the hell out of me. I won’t watch it again even now. The house located at 112 Ocean Avenue Amityville, Long Island New York was the scene of 6 gruesome murders committed by the DeFoe’s son Butch. That wasn’t the end of it. The house was purchased afterwards and the Lutz family (not the Lutz family I know) moved in to it. They lived there 28 days and were driven out by “Something”…

The Exorcist

Another one that was terrifying. When it was released in 1973 it had people fleeing the movie theaters. After 40 plus years it still stands the test of time. Inspired by the 1949 Exorcism of Roland Doe, this one is sure to give you the “willies” too! It made 12 year old Linda Blair a household name and probably was also the death of her career.

American Werewolf in London

Finally one that isn’t based on a true story though werewolves are thought to exist. I saw this one when it came out. Sprinkled lightly with some humor but the werewolf transformation was incredible realistic looking for the time. No CGI was involved. David and Jack are backpacking across the New York Moors and stop in at The Slaughtered Lamb” pub  for a brew. Before they leave the are warned to ” Stay on the road, Keep clear of the Moors”. But they are attacked by a creature and Jack is killed. This is were is gets trippy. As the movie continues along Jack shows up in different states of decomposition. It has some great scare moments in it. Well worth the watch!

 

Phantasm

Phantasm

A bizarre movie about an undertaker that shrinks down the town’s dead people to dwarf size so they can be used as slaves on another planet. The movie contains all the cool stuff a horror movie needs. Dead people, creepy tall people and a sphere that flies thru the air and drills holes in your head!

 

A Nightmare on Elm Street

Freddy-freddy-krueger-33746737-500-614

The first movie in the series was ground breaking. A real slasher movie! An evil man burnt up in a furnace because of his deeds only to come back to life in your dreams! How cool was that? “One, Two, Freddie is coming for you”! Don’t go to sleep! It still holds up!

List some of yours!

Honorable mentions:

The Omen

Night of the Living Dead

The Blob

It’s Alive

The Fog
