Suppose. On a faraway island. A dilapidated house. A gusty wind. A stony way. A dimly lit entrance. You enter alone. Are you really alone?
Frank Chastain’s taste for all things spooky makes him bring out this hair raising book about serial killers and ghosts that is bound to give you the chills. Beginning with a close study of the psychology of the serial killers, Chastain notes that serial killers are concerned with themselves and no one else. They often lie about their feelings and tend to have a disturbed childhood.
While harboring homicidal thoughts is not out of the norm even in a very normally behaved person’s mind, it is the tendency to give these thoughts a course that differentiates average people from serial killers. They are also obsessive narcissists and are cruel to animals in their childhood. This may be due to chemical deficiencies in the brain. With a short introduction the book goes on to index a list of killers in the history of the criminal world. These include the Long Island Killer, the Zodiac Killer, the Child killer Genene Jones, the Boston Strangler, Richard Ramirez, Pogo the Clown and many more. The book is filled with brief accounts of their ghastly acts that is unfathomable to the average person.
It is a dark face of the beastly and cannibalistic instincts of humankind. The book also comes with chapters on Fascinating Facts About Serial Killers and their Famous Last Words which are baffling.
Everybody has grown up listening to ghost stories as a child and while it may seem fascinating, it never fails to scare. People enjoy being scared despite the adrenaline rush. But some people also have strange things happening to them and are afraid to tell others fearing societal taboo. Chastain mentions that what we call ‘ghost’ is in fact the spirit, soul or energy of a dead person. The book enlists a number of stories that are actually claims made by others who were not believed by their peers initially and were termed as mad. The stories are chilling and troublesome. Folklore ghost stories on the other hand are lighter and may even contain tinges of dark humour. Occult stories like those of Annabelle are very much alive even today.
Though certain unexplained mysteries are a point of debate among investigators and ghost busters but they continue to fascinate explorers and readers alike. The book provides a few do’s and don’ts that are good to keep in mind just in case you encounter something supernatural someday. You never know.
