Butchered Surgery With A Side Of Cream

Today’s journey takes us to another infamous doctor, a bit lesser-known than Harold Shipman but just as deadly from the United Kingdom. 

Not All Doctors Are Good

Thomas Neill Cream, or Dr. Cream, was a Scottish-Canadian medical doctor, graduate from the Montréal McGill University in Québec, Canada. It earned him the moniker of the Lamberth Poisoner as he used strychnine to poison his victims. 

Thomas was born in May 1850 and dreamed of becoming a doctor. It was an era where people put their complete trust in doctors and medicine as there was no other way to inform oneself about anatomy and medical procedures. Also, doctors took an oath to save lives.

The Haunting Of The Marshall House Hotel Of Savannah Georgia

We have a passion here at Gothic Bite Magazine for haunted places with lots of history attached to them. Visiting places where possible entities still reside in their homes, last places, or new ones, intrigue us. This week, we’re visiting the State of Georgia.

History’s Medical Horror

Savannah, Georgia, is one of the most haunted cities in Georgia. This is not strange due to the number of horrific deaths that have taken place in this city. Being so haunted means that there is a prolific number of places that those who are looking for a fright should visit.

One such place is the Marshall House Hotel. From Spanish flu to the civil war within its borders, it had it all. The people who run the Marshall House Hotel are very aware of the house’s haunted history and deal with everything from objects moving to lights flickering on and off at all hours.

Blood Donation Bags

Vampires Donating Blood

Blood: the red liquid that circulates in the arteries and veins of humans and other vertebrate animals, carrying oxygen to and carbon dioxide from the tissues of the body. It is also Life.

Red Cross Call

According to the American Red Cross, approximately thirty-two thousand pints of blood are used each day in the United States. One pint can save up to three lives.

With a shelf life of just forty-two days, blood is always in demand. The Red Cross counts for about forty percent of the nation’s blood donations.

Great New England Vampire Panic

Along with all my other quirks and unique aspirations I am working towards a doctorate in American History. The real history of America is not something read in textbooks and vampires are a part of it.

Supernatural Superstitions

Often it’s hidden from sight. The victors write history; the ugliness washed away. I found this tidbit of history and I thought my vampire fans out there might enjoy.

In the early years of American history, New England was full of superstitions about the supernatural. The church spread fears of evil which lead to the witch trials so famously diluted in our history books. Vampires were rumored to roam New England’ rural communities by night with reports documented as early as 1793.

Scorecard Killer

Soak Up The Sun

There is something about the State of California, with its sunny beaches, the coast, and its beautiful people, that can be misleading. There’s a darker side to this beautiful state.

Making California a little darker back in the 1970s were a trio of serial killers hunting California freeways for young men. One of these killers was Randy Kraft.

The Bell Witch

The Bell Witch or Bell Witch Haunting is a legend from Southern American folklore, centered on the 19th-century Bell family of northwest Robertson County, Tennessee. — Wikipedia

Who or What is it?

There’s much controversy about the Bell Witch Cave. Some say she is the daughter of an abusive father. Some say she is an outside entity that came to torment the Bell Family. There are even other reports that the Bell Witch was a male slave killed by Bell in the past.

The most common telling of it is that the Bell Witch was a neighbor girl whose name was Kate Batts. Often reports show the girl to quarrel with John Bell’s daughter Betsy who’s engagement was to Joshua Gardner—later broke up in 1821.

Swamp Monster Pt.1

The legend of the Swamp Monster is not as old as one would expect. When doing research on the monster itself, thinking mostly to be as old as Bigfoot, to my surprise the very first sighting of the half humanoid half leafy murky wet abominable monster took place in 1963 when a man and his friend were looking down from a plane on a swamp and discovered more than they anticipated.
