So, if you've been wondering what the Unhinged Alaskan has been up to, then wonder no more, you can find everything that I've been writing about here in this [...]
We're still exploring urban legends of Oregon, but this week we're starting to explore Alaska as well! Take a look at some of these interesting tales that have documented first-hand reports.

Then I spoke at length about the Necronomicon and the Evil Dead franchise and finally wrapped the week up with a look at the fairy tale behind Hansel and Gretel and the interesting adaptation that Gretel & Hansel (2020) pulled off.
