Dusk Till Dawn Events Favourite Horror Films!

The Exorcist

There have been some great horror films over the years including the all time 1970’s  favourite horror ‘The Exorcist’ where a child named Regan becomes possessed by the devil.

Regan was played by child Actress Linda Blair.  The film is said to have had cinema viewers running and screaming from the cinema in sheer terror!








The Entity

Supposedly based partially on a true story, a woman is tormented and sexually molested by an invisible demon.


Death Of A Ghost Hunter

Another great ghost hunting film Death of a ghost hunter most definitely worth a watch.

Made in 2007 this is a fabulous underated horror suspense movie directed by Sean Tretta. A Ghost Huntress investigates a haunted house and gets more thans she has bargained for!









When The Lights Went Out

A new film recently released called “When the lights went out” which is based on a haunting that supposedly took place at a house in Pontefract UK might be a good watch!




Theres a new horrow movie out February 2013 which we really like the look of its called Mama and looks as freaky as hell make sure you watch!
Guillermo del Toro presents Mama, a supernatural thriller that tells the haunting tale of two little girls who disappeared into the woods the day that their parents were killed. When they are rescued years later and begin a new life, they find that someone or something still wants to come tuck them in at night.

Ouija Boards

A Ouija Board is usually a square or circle flat Board with the letters of the alphabet and numbers written on it. Some times the words Yes, No, Hello and Goodbye  are shown also.

Sometimes before using the Ouija Board people like to protect themselves which can be done in any way that suits you best some like to imagine a white cloak wrapped around them others like to imagine they are in a bubble of white light. Generally its what ever you feel works best for you goes!

A pointer or planchette is used to point out words around the board with everyone participating placing one finger lightly onto the planchette. One of the group calls out asking for communication from the other side eg: Is there anyone there,Are you Male, Are you Female etc.

Its a good idea to have one person writing the letters that are spelt out onto a piece of paper so you can remember what was actually said via the board once the session is over.

The Ouija Board has received a lot of bad press over recent years partly due to horror films such as the Exorcist where the child Reagan plays with a Ouija Board before she gets possessed by the devil!

In all honesty the Ouija Board is really just another divination tool such as tarot cards and pendulums.  The thing to remember is use sensibly and if you are of a nervous nature and easily frightened dont go asking what you really wouldnt like to hear an answer too such as “When will I die?” How will I die? you may not get an answer you will like so just be sensible no drinking beforehand just use your common sense and have fun.

Warwick Castle

It was cold, wet and windy as we approached the majestic and spooky looking Warwick Castle, After settling in and taking a small tour of the building, we began our vigils. The Witches room seemed to be inhabited by a tall, over-bearing man who wanted to put the table from one room into the next. The table tipping was SO energetic that we were able to place just one finger each UNDERNEATH the table, and it still moved violently around the room. We managed to get a couple of brave volunteers to go into the adjoining room alone – better them than me !

The chapel was also a very active area with K2 meters responding to our requests and also the very strange phenomena of spirit turning an IPhone off and on in response to our requests during the night.

The Ouija board produced some interesting information about people who once lived within the Castle grounds, and the stand alone vigils in the Kingmake section had Lee, one of our guests, feeling very wobbly and shaky, almost as though he was being pushed over !

A great night, all in all and we look forward to returning in 2013.

Secret rooms uncovered at Warwick Castle

Report & Video by Mark Morris

Time Team’s Tony Robinson has opened four never-seen-before rooms at Warwick Castle, including one designed by Richard III.

The rooms have remained closed for generations, and when they were uncovered, they revealed secrets and stories about the castle’s past.

Tony said: “I’m quite giddy to be the first person to see inside these rooms and to officially open them to the public.

“I’ve spent many years searching for exactly this – clues and evidence to unlock secrets from the past.”

The rooms opened on February 16, in time for half term.

Visitors will have the chance to seek a shy ghost, explore a deadly bear’s lair and smell foul medieval sludge.


Dusk Till Dawn Events Ghost Hunt at The Cage Witches Prison St Osyth – 6th October 2012 – By Mediums Sue & Michael Treanor

We arrived at The Cage in Essex for a night of ghost hunting a bit worse for wear after a nightmare on the M25, but once we met our guests and got settled in, we really began to soak up the atmosphere of the place..

There was a small room connected to the kitchen area which we all said felt very spooky once the lights were out – I felt very pulled to one of the corners and also the wall which went through to the sitting room. During my table tipping sessions in there, the table literally walked towards the connecting wall over and over again.  Both groups picked up and a man, a woman and a child in this room although he man was the dominating presence. I smelled straw a couple of times, very strongly, and we also had some tapping noises on the table. At one point we thought the group upstairs were running up and down the stairs, but when I shouted up and asked if they had moved, they said there were all sitting on the floor using the Ouija boards! In our second group in this area, several people also heard some very loud growls, 2 or 3 times.

The Cage Mediaeval Witch Prison St Osyth Essex

In the living room area, the table tipped very well again, and again, it seemed to be moving itself towards the connecting wall to the kitchen. We asked if anyone was buried or had died under this wall and the table went wild!  At one point a lady in the group was very, very, frightened by what she described as a hand, which grabbed and pulled her pinkie finger as she was table tipping. At this point, there was enough light from the window for us to see that it definitely was not anyone within the group who had touched her. She took a few minutes to calm down, but like a true ghost hunter, she carried on with the session in the dark! Well done!

As scratching noises have been reported from beneath the toilet floor, we asked one of our group (Dave) to do a lone vigil in the toilet, and although he heard noises, he said he couldn’t be sure where they were coming from.

Upstairs on the Ouija board, both groups received the same answers as to how many spirits inhabit the house (10) and one group got the name ‘Cassie’ the other ‘Carrie’ – very similar. The name Bill was also picked up, an angry man who seemed to like being in the main, larger, bedroom. Michael had picked up earlier that someone had hung themselves just outside this room, which one of the guests confirmed to us (the owner had told the story before we arrived) – could it have been Bill?

This room also produced strange phenomena, in that it became very, very hot (although the rest of the house was cold) and people’s arms and hands seem to be lifted as we formed a circle and asked out to spirit.

All in all, an active nights ghost hunting at The Cage !!
