In culture after culture, people believe that the soul lives on after death, that rituals can change the physical world and divine the truth, and that illness and misfortune are caused and alleviated by spirits, ghosts, saints ... and gods.

The "Blood Cemetery"

Curtis Carmichael, paranormal researcher and photographer today announced the official release of a new web site focusing on the famed ‘Blood Cemetery’ located in Hollis, New Hampshire (USA). This cemetery, cited in virtually all haunted places books in print in the New England area is believed to be one of the most haunted and active cemeteries in the region. With gravestones dating back to the 1700s, it is very old.

Officially, the cemetery is named Pine Hill Cemetery although commonly referred to as simply Blood Cemetery – the name attributable to the Blood family burial blot towards the central region of the burial grounds. Many believe the ghost of Abel Blood roams the cemetery and his headstone has been commonly cited and studied by paranormal researchers. Many people have reported the hand pointing up towards the heavens on his grave mysteriously points downward at night.

Numerous paranormal investigations have recorded strange voices (EVPs) and ghostly orbs have shown up in countless photographs. Closed dusk to dawn and heavily patrolled by authorities around Halloween.
