In 1957, an odd, soft-spoken man named Ed Gein shocked the nation. What they discovered on his remote farm in rural Wisconsin was the stuff of nightmares, and would go on to inspire many modern horror movies, including Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Silence of the Lambs. But the true story of Ed Gein, is so much worse.

A recent National Geographic poll showed that more than 77 percent of the public believes that aliens from another planet have visited the earth at some point in history. It’s disturbing enough when a person vanishes without a trace.

Logic tells us curses aren’t real. Yet history is full of instances that make you scratch your head and wonder. Hear some of the strange true stories, including the legend of King Tut’s curse, the serial killer who cast a hex on the courtroom that convicted him and the curse of an ancient warlord that some people think may have killed millions of people.
