“A Music Box” and 4 more creepy true stories! #WeirdDarkness

In this episode: The ghost of a caring teacher and widow appears to supernaturally give her own life to save the life of a dying child. *** Even the dwelling of fundamental Christians isn’t immune to having an evil entity as a resident. *** In 1969, did a man named Sid Hurwich build a working time-machine? Many believe so – but if it’s true, what happened to it? And what happened to him? *** A young boy’s music box turns out to be something more than just a trinket. *** It is reportedly the most haunted castle in Britain, but how did Pengersick Castle get that reputation?
