Hmmm…witches of Salem? Almost hope it was a flat-out “mis-direct” (AKA, a bold lie to throw us off the scent); we were hoping for a Southern Gothic. More on that, and our theory, later. The real-life character they’ve said she plays (well, they didn’t say who it was, I did some Scooby-Gang research* and am working on a piece outlining my theory) led me to some research which revealed so many horrible historical facts (and I thought I knew them all) that were interesting, but also so blood-curdling that I kind of tried to shove what I learned about her out of my brain (un-reading it can’t be done).
So our theory is coming soon (it can’t come some enough, if they’ve started dropping serious hints out with more to come in the next weeks). Until then, you’ll probably find this interesting… click on the big red link below to read the story on Dread Central. Anyone else have theories or hunches, or even just wild guesses, we’d love to know!
*OK, the team at Horror Boom (which consists of my husband and I, for now) didn’t go cruising around in a Mystery Machine, getting toasted with Scooby and Shaggy, but the only other way I could think of to describe it was “sleuthing”, which sounded way cornier. Plus, we’re HUGE Scooby Doo fans (and I’m a huge Buffy The Vampire Slayer Fan, too). ZOINKS! Like, run for your lives, man!
