DeadFi Horror Updates (June 2014)

We're still working on our found footage trilogy Dead Static in post-production which comes out this October 27th, 2014. It's looking great and so far I'd say my favorite tale of the bunch is Emily's Bridge. Anyway, after this release, we are making another found footage short for the feature length anthology The Fear Project, which is being produced by StrangeHouse Pictures out of Canada. You can watch the trailer here...

Next summer 2015, we are planning to shoot a traditional style short about 10 minutes long called What Came from the Bog. This short will be the first time we use professional lights and a whole assortment of other stuff so I'm very excited about this. It's also my best screenplay to date. Stay tuned!

The Pittsford Haunted House (Vermont's Most Haunted)

Location: Pittsford, Vermont (Google map)

History: The Pittsford Haunted House was originally part of the Caverly Preventorium, which was a hospital complex that opened in 1923 on 80 acres of remote land in southern Vermont. The Preventorium was built specifically to treat children from poor families who at the time were considered to be the most susceptible to contracting tuberculous. The Preventorium closed around 1947 but it was reopened as the Caverly Child Health Center sometime later and operated until 1973. Since then, the buildings have remained mostly vacant except for the annual Pittsford Haunted House event which is a fundraiser operated by the Pittsford Fire Department. The event began in 1981 and continues to this day attracting thousands of people per night. Learn more about the history here.

Story: Over the decades since the annual haunted house event has been operating, numerous people have had paranormal experiences at this location. No one seems to know why the house is haunted or what is causing these incidents. Could it be something bad happened? Were some of the children mistreated or possibly even experimented on by doctors looking for a cure? We may never know.

Experiences: People have reported seeing a young girl looking out from one of the second floor windows and then disappearing. She is said to have no face. People have reported feelings of being watched in certain parts of the house. Phantom footsteps, mysterious lights and strange odors have all been reported as well. There has also been sightings of a nurse named Amy, who is said to have died in the hospital from contracting tuberculosis. She has been witnessed roaming the hallways of the second floor.

Best times: Anytime, although a visit when their is a full moon or during Halloween are your best bets.

Be sure to check out our found footage trilogy DEAD STATIC which brings to life the folklore of The Pittsford Haunted House in the most horrifying of ways! Release date is October 27th, 2014 on our YouTube channel.

Green Mount Cemetery (Vermont's Most Haunted)

Location: Montpelier, Vermont (Google map)

History: Green Mount Cemetery, also known as Green Mountain Cemetery, is a massive thirty-five acres amid gorgeous rolling hills. The land was purchased in 1854 by the town of Montpelier with the help of an $1,000 donation from Calvin Keith, who was a local lawyer. The cemetery is known for its numerous funerary art including Little Margaret (featured below) and Black Agnes (featured above).

Story: Green Mount Cemetery is known for the urban legend about the Black Agnes monument, which marks the grave of John E. Hubbard (1847-1899). Many believe the statue is cursed or haunted. Legend has it that if you sit in the lap of Black Agnes under the light of a full moon, you will suffer seven years of bad luck, or worse, a miserable death. Many don't realize that Black Agnes is actually a male since its features are so feminine but it was modeled after the Greek god of death Thanatos. There is also a story of a young girl who haunts the grounds in a perpetual search for her mother's grave. Could it be Little Margaret?

Experiences: Some people have heard the metal gates at the entrance moving when clearly they're not. Many have also reported odd paranormal activity at the Black Agnes monument including EVPs where a strange voice is heard calling out to people by their names. Strange lights and ectoplasmic mists have been spotted as well.

Best times: Between the hours of midnight and 3:00AM especially when there is a full moon. Halloween is another opportune time.

Be sure to check out our found footage trilogy DEAD STATIC which brings to life the folklore of Green Mount Cemetery and Black Agnes in the most horrifying of ways! Release date is October 27th, 2014 on our YouTube channel.
