As if hearing about some of the world’s scariest places can cause nightmares alone, my guest, author E.R. Vernor, aka Corvis Nocturnum gave us a double whammy of scary things to ponder with some spooky tales from his book Haunted Asylums as well. The book goes behind the barbed wire and explores the many sanitariums or asylums that were intended to help the mentally ill but only contributed to their afflictions. The book covers the history behind the infamous Riverside patient Mary Mallon, also known as Typhoid Mary, the gothic and foreboding buildings at Danvers State Hospital in Danvers, Massachusetts, which became both the inspiration and the filming location for the movie Session 9, and Oregon State Hospital, where Jack Nicholson’s famous One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest was filmed. Today, these abandoned state institutions have been converted into other uses or remain in shambles, but the ghosts of their pasts linger. The author explores these reputedly haunted asylums and others all the world over. Join us…if you dare.
