Ouijazilla the world's largest ouija board to be unveiled in Salem this Halloween

Rick Ormortis Schreck, the Vice President of the Talking Board Historical Society whose family has been dubbed the “real-life Addams Family,” has been hard at work preparing to crush the current world record holder for the world’s largest Ouija board.

The massive board, which has been named Ouijazilla, was constructed out of wood and hand-painted by Schreck in the classic Ouija style.

“So I finally am able to talk about the Top Secret project that I have been working on since last summer,” Schreck posted on Instagram. “It has been a Hell of a journey and. It ain’t over yet. Stay tuned for sneak peeks at the Monster!”

Ouijazilla will be unveiled in Salem this October. More info here.

The Grand Midway Hotel in Windber, Pennsylvania currently holds the Guinness World Record for the Ouija board they painted on their roof in 2016 along with the accompanying ten-foot planchette on wheels.

I’m thrilled to see what kind of monster Ouija Schreck has created.

Featured Oddities #5: Son of the Devil, Blue Ghost, and Reindeer Horn

Today’s gathering of weird art and morbid oddities for sale.

Hey there, it’s been awhile. Time has not been on my side lately, and it’s all I can do just to push out a monthly newsletter. But a handful of recent discoveries made me realize it was time to dust off the “Featured Oddities” series to showcase some things I know you’ll be dying to adorn your corpse and your crypt with.

Authentic, vintage sideshow banners are hard to come by, and certainly not affordable for the casual circus freak enthusiast as they can go for thousands of dollars. That’s why I knew this large, high quality reproduction created by Jason Lonon of Death-Ray Design would be hanging on my wall the moment I saw it.

Ghosts And Gadgets: Communicating with the Spirits

Morbid Anatomy presents this short film by Ronni Thomas exploring Brandon Hodge’s incredible personal collection of planchettes and other devices used to communicate with the spirit world.

From his profile on the Talking Board Historical Society:

Brandon Hodge is a collector, author, historian, and the prevailing authority on automatic writing planchettes and early spirit communication devices. Long fascinated by the bizarre occult world of tipping tables, séances, Spiritualism, and ghostly encounters, Brandon acquired his first automatic writer—a boxed E.I.H. Scientific Planchette—nearly two decades ago. He has since traveled the globe documenting, collecting, and lecturing on the world’s rarest séance artifacts.
