Burial Day Books is a boutique publisher of supernatural horror. Once a week we research a particular element dealing with superstition, folklore or myth and write a short piece about that element from the Gravedigger’s perspective. These elements were sometimes used somewhere in a previous horror story in history. Or, these elements could have been pulled from particular ideals, or from items that illicit fear.

For the next few weeks we will blog about purported haunted cases. This is the case of Annabelle.
In 1973, it was a girl’s relationship with a Ouija board in The Exorcism. Today, it was a girl’s relationship with a box in The Possession. The topic of possession is a common horror film subject. It is like the disease or virus common in many modern day Horror-Sci-Fi blends. Possession is a sickness [...]
The Undertaker and I are not particularly fond of the excessively hot summer months. Still, we do try to make the attempt to venture outside during warm months as our physician insists upon it, and I suppose we must stay healthy, as there is always a new grave to dig and a new headstone to [...]
