ABOUT THIS SITE

“If there is a true universal mind, must it be sane?”
― Charles Fort, “The Book of the Damned”

Hello,
Thank you for visiting my site: Videos of the Damned. My name is Bernie O’Connor and I am a documentary binge watcher. I will watch almost any documentary, day or night.

However, due to my lifelong interest and investigations in all things UFO, Paranormal, Bigfoot, Ghosts, Cryptids, and all other unexplained mysteries,  I specialize in watching Fortean documentaries.

The term “Fortean” if you are unfamiliar with it, is derived from Charles Hoy Fort ( 8/6/1874-5/3/1932) who was an American writer and researcher who specialized in cataloguing anomalous phenomena. The terms Fortean and Forteana are sometimes used to characterize various such phenomena. His most famous book was titled, The Book of the Damned.

The Author, Jim Steinmeyer, in his Biography of  Fort crowned Charles: The Man Who Invented the Supernatural

As all new books that are published on any of the topics mentioned above in the second paragraph, receive countless reviews, I thought I would give it a go and try reviewing the Fortean video segment.

Please note that I use the designation  “video” as general  term that covers all recorded visual media. And the reviews are my personal opinions, unless I use a quote from another source.

With the explosion of streaming services like Netflix, Prime and YouTube, there has never been such a large library of Fortean documentaries available for public viewing.

So this website is my humble attempt to help the audience out there in TV Land find the chills and mysterious truths  they are searching  for when they decide take “one step beyond into the haunted screen.”

I hope this website helps you in choosing the right video, and thank you again for visiting. Please drop me a comment via the
