Marie Clapper is known as the first victim to be abducted by the Jersey Devil. Her abduction was hushed because of scandals involving Marie and some of the married men in her home town. Some speculate that she wasn’t abducted at all, and that the Jersey Devil was drawn to Marie because she was a sociopath and a fire-starter who got off on chaos. She especially liked destroying the relationships of married couples. Sociopaths do not have feelings like average people do. Th
Many different experiences have influenced the writing of “Buzzkill New Jersey”. My friends had 3 main hangout spots: “The Barn” located at the Sgroi House, Joe’s older brother Sal’s house, and the old Belmar house. We didn’t call it the “Old Belmar House” back then, but the house has since been knocked down and rebuilt. Before that happened, that was our party spot for the summer. We were a block and a half from the beach. The house belonged to my grandfather who left it
One of the locations used when shooting “Buzzkill New Jersey” is the Sgroi House. This story comes straight from Joe Sgroi. Joe grew up in the house, which is 300 years old and super awesome-looking inside. The house was surely the largest house around at the time of its construction because it is large by today’s standards. The main house has many rooms. The inside has been updated and modernized in some ways, but the shell and the bones of the structure along with severa
If we get 25 contact messages saying to make these t-shirts (which would be very nice-fitting cotton/poly blend) we will begin selling them. You will not be held to buying anything, we just want to see if there is any demand. Thanks friends! (BKNJ t-shirt)
An original "Dutch Colonial" style house, which are very popular in New Jersey, could trace back 300 years. That usually means many different inhabitance have come and gone. When someone meets their end inside their house, there is chance their spirit will stay put. The human mind is different than any other living creature’s. It is usually the high-functioning mind that becomes vulnerable to obsession. The old adage is that ghosts are spirits with “unfinished business”.
The post-Labor Day atmosphere around Belmar, New Jersey and other shore points is actually quiet nice. The weather is still nice, yet there aren’t thousands of out-of-towners driving around too slowly and ruining the beautiful scenery with their stupid faces. I must apologize to the New York drivers, to whom I spew so much venom and vitriol as I try to drive home. You are not the worst drivers. Pennsylvania people are the worst drivers. New York drivers are horrible, anno
Warning: a couple minor spoilers. Head of nail, meet the sledgehammer. Netflix has been on point and ahead of the game for a long time. When they finally became able to make their own content, they started hitting grand-slams with the “Movie/Television Series”. Stranger Things takes this concept to a perfect level. Since it is technically a television series, they open up the “pause-factor” of the viewing experience which allows for a much longer and more intricate story.
The Marlboro Psychiatric Center is one of the most famous Monmouth County, New Jersey creepy locations. The compound was affectionately nicknamed the “Nut Hut” by the local youth. The psychiatric hospital opened in 1931. The compound sat on over 500 acres and was full of large brick buildings (pictured). The buildings were all set back from the road. The hospital remained open until the late 1990’s. Local basketball teams were aloud access to the gym for practicing. I can
Very proud to announce the completion of the August schedule. The house scenes are complete! Although an old house in August with no ac is hellishly hot and humid even at night, our actors were on point and performed brilliantly. We had an ambitious schedule and a skeleton crew, but we accomplished a lot. Stay tuned.
