The time between three and four in the morning is said to be the hour when evil is at the height of it’s power -- the time when the Devil ascends from Hell and ghosts haunt the land of the living.

  • 3 AM inside the Old City Jail
  • Torture chambers, the crane of pain, and the hangman’s lair
  • Lorraine Warren visits the Old City Jail
  • Footsteps in an empty corridor

Nestled inside Charleston, South Carolina lives a menacing stone monstrosity, often called the most haunted building in America -- The Old City Jail. The square upon which the Jail sits has been home to untold amounts of suffering and torture, making it the perfect breeding ground for the supernatural to take hold.

As part of my training and experience as a storyteller and tour guide, I have been visiting haunted locations for the past 19 years. There have been many times that I’ve been in the presence of people having a paranormal encounter, but I had never felt anything myself until the night I decided to enter the Old City Jail. This is part one of my experience, the story of a night that shook me to my very core.

Episode Highlights:

  • My journey into Charleston’s Old City Jail, the most haunted building in America
  • A blood-soaked address
  • Walking through Hell in the Old City Jail -- three terrifying tour experiences
  • The woman in the white dress
  • Horror in the Six Mile Wayfarer House
  • Paranormal investigations inside Old City Jail
  • The Devil’s Hour

The railroad tracks over the Tsavo river are flanked on either side with lush grasses. A picturesque river runs below, providing a calming base for the trains that rush from Uganda to Kenya and back again. During it’s construction, men from all over India and far parts of Africa gathered at the Tsavo river, working for months on end. At first, the men were oblivious to the twin pairs of golden eyes stalking them from the grasses… until half-devoured bodies and screams in the night became commonplace.

From a distance, from a viewpoint high above the clouds, the Kenya-Uganda Railway snakes its way across deserts and through forests of thorns, trailing bloodshed and pain in its wake.

Episode Highlights:

  • Demons in the Forest of Thorns
  • Lieutenant-Colonel John Henry Patterson and the Tsavo River
  • Devoured men and lion prints: A campsite surrounded
  • Patterson’s hunt for a pride of unordinary lions
  • The figure on the platform
  • Blood on the desert sand
  • The price of the railroad
