Paranormal Pop News Update # 18

Destination America reported this week that a woman is claiming that a ghost is scaring off all the men in her life.

For 14 years, Tracy Proctor of England says she has been haunted by a “protective” monk-like figure who has ruined all the male relationships in her life. Her sons, boyfriends and male visitors flee the house in terror and she is left alone.

Proctor has lived in her home in West Yorkshire for 19 years and for a large majority of that, she has been haunted by a ghost she says moves keys, glasses and e-cigarettes while also removing the clothing from her collection of dolls.

“Many men have been driven out from my home,” Proctor said.

So far, the ghost, thought to be the Black Monk of Pontefract seems to mostly terrorize the men in her life, appearing as a black hooded figure and stomping with footsteps and other disruptions. She has had boyfriends leave and her sons don’t want to come home for the holidays.

The monk is famous in Yorkshire for having driven a family from a home and the story was made into a movie and a book. Still, Proctor has lived with the spectre for so many years, it seems she is OK with the whole thing. She says she feels the ghost is protecting her rather than haunting her.


For any of you that are Sharknado fans, Syfy has given Sharknado 5 a Go.

The latest sequel will film in more than five countries, including the U.K., Bulgaria and Australia.

The official description for Sharknado 5 says that “with much of North America lying in ruins, the rest of the world braces for the inevitable – a global sharknado. Fin Shepard and his family must put a stop to this disaster before Earth is completely obliterated.

The first Sharknado debuted in July 2013 to a solid 1.4 million viewers. No premiere date has been given yet for #5 but previous installments were released in July for Shark week.


Our friends over at “” have had some exciting news recently. Greg Newkirk reported that since 2013, the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult, the world’s only mobile museum full of haunted, cursed and supernaturally-significant artifacts has been fascinating thousands of people around the world while preserving paranormal history. Now, you can join the museum and help that work continue on an even bigger scale, while getting exclusive access to rare artifacts, private events, and more.

The Travelling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult is the culmination of two-decades of explorations in the strange and the unexplained. With artifacts like the dark mirror, the idol of nightmares and a plank from the real life Amityville Horror House, the museum has quickly become the highlight of paranormal events from California to Maine and everywhere in between.

In the last year alone, the roving museum of haunted artifacts has become such a source of fascination that The Independent, one of the largest newspapers in the UK, named the museum one of the five weirdest museums to visit in 2017.

For the first time the museum has launched a special program aimed at funding several groundbreaking research projects – including a massive 3D scanning initiative – while giving members special behind the scenes access to artifact notes, unreleased evidence, and monthly shipments of exclusive goodies. Those looking to help the work being conducted can even choose to join the museum’s advisory board, which nets its own perks.

Those looking to become members can learn more about the details of each membership level and the museum’s goals by visiting the official Patreon page at

With the New Year upon us I thought a review of some of the upcoming movies of 2017 was in order. For January a few exciting titles are Underworld: Blood Wars, Split and Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. The month of love brings us Rings, Fifty Shades Darker and John Wick: Chapter Two. March does not disappoint with the long awaited Logan, Beauty and the Beast, Chips and Power Rangers. Skipping over April which looked a tad dull to me, May has King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Alien Covenant, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul and very overdue – Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Summer is looking very exciting for Hollywood, June, July and August brings us a full season of heat with Wonder Woman, The Mummy, Transformers: The Last Knight, Amityville: The Awakening and Annabelle 2. Fall also looks like it won’t be disappointing with Stephen King’s IT, Flatliners, Blade Runner 2049, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Friday the 13th, Isidious: Chapter 4, Thor: Ragnarok and Justice League. To polish off 2017 we go out with a bang in December with Star Wars: Episode VIII, Jumanji, Pitch Perfect 3 and The Six Billion Dollar Man.

For those of you that enjoy a good Big Foot story, the folks at the paranormal reported on an Irish Bigfoot that was photographed walking through a haunted forest. A dog walker became freaked out when she spotted what looks like a Big Foot creature in a photo she took while out walking her dog in a haunted forest in County Antrim in Northern Ireland. Maxime was out walking through the forest with her two dogs near the site where a US Air Force B17 Flying Fortress bomber crashed in 1942 killing all eight of the ten people on board. Suddenly her dogs became spooked by what she said was an eerie presence which she now thinks was an unknown creature which she happened to take a photo of. Although she didn’t see anything at the time and only noticed the strange creature while looking back at the photo. Maxime said “I haven’t got a clue what it is but when I saw it, it really freaked me out. It’s not like anything I’ve ever seen before.” “The dogs are normally full of energy and never stop running but when we went through that part of the forest they just stopped still and stared in the same direction. It was as if they knew something was there. I couldn’t see anything at the time, but when I got home and showed people the pictures it was spooky.” She said that a lot of people who have seen the photo are claiming that it is Big Foot. She said “people were pointing out its face and saying it was Big Foot. I’ve always been pretty open-minded about the paranormal. I don’t disbelieve, and this has really reinforced my view that there could be something out there.”

“Along with all the other history and rumors about this forest it really makes you think.”

The link is a bit lengthy so I’m going to put it up on our facebook page if you would like to look for yourself.

This story caught my attention because of our friends at the Week in  Dana Matthews and Greg Newkirk who have been on The Paranormal Pop in the past are trying to prove a theory that Big Foot is actually a paranormal occurrence as opposed to an actual physical animal. With this story running out of a known haunted forest it really made me think of them. Certainly seems to fit right in with their theory.
