If you have a passion for the strange and unusual (who am I kidding, of course you do), you’ll love T’Spookhuys, a marvelously morbid and seriously cool former restaurant in Turnhout, Belgium.
The restaurant was opened by Karl Hendrix and Bjorn Leys on October 1, 1997. They wanted to create a unique space that captured a perfectly creepy vibe for patrons to enjoy, and by golly I’d say they succeeded.
Dubbed the “House of 1,000 Ghosts”, the restaurant incorporated haunting interior decor in the best way possible. Squeaky self-opening doors, moving paintings, smoke coming down from the ceiling, and hidden monsters and demons in every corner. Servers were dressed as vampires and devil worshippers to help set the mood (at least we think those were waiters…).
Unfortunately they closed down in 2008 to open a club in another location, so you can no longer go to enjoy your meals served in a skull-shaped bowl. But don’t fret, the now-abandoned building remains open for curious visitors. It’s supposedly haunted (of course) so this should add even more appeal to the awesomely ambient former hot-spot.
Abandoned buildings are often unnerving in their own way, but T’Spookhuys takes it to the next level. Beautifully carved skulls and other spooky details gloriously adorn every surface. Check out the amazing photos below, and be sure to add this spot to your travel wish list!

‘Final Destination 6’ Coming to HBO Max From ‘Freaks’ Filmmakers
Freaks filmmakers, Zach Lipovsky and Adam B. Stein have been brought on board to direct an upcoming Final Destination 6 for HBO Max. Jon Watts is on as producer with Lori Evans and Guy Buswick as writers.
“I will say that it’s not just going to be another kind of ‘we set up a group of people, they cheat death, and then just death gets them.’ And there’s one wrinkle that we kind of added to every movie to kind of like change it up a little bit: this one is… a true Final Destination movie, but it doesn’t follow that kind of formula that we’ve kind of established.” Jeffrey Reddick told Dread Central.
The synopsis for the first Final Destination went like this:
Alex Browning (Devon Sawa), is embarking on a trip to Paris. Alex experiences a premonition — he sees the plane explode moments after leaving the ground. Alex insists that everyone get off the plane and 7 people including Alex, are forced to disembark. All watch as the plane actually explodes in a fireball. He and the other survivors have briefly cheated death, but will not be able to evade their fate for very long. One by one, these fugitives from fate fall victim to the grim reaper.
We will keep you updated on all things Final Destination.
Stranger Things Season 4 Blooper Reel
As part of the TUDUM: A Global Fan Event releases, Netflix has given Stranger Things fans a nice little treat. I’m a huge fan of behind-the-scenes and blooper reels! I loved seeing the characters we know so well break the 4th wall when overwhelmed with a case of the giggles. Even the powerful Vecna couldn’t escape landing on the Stranger Things season 4 blooper reel!
Watch our favorite actors break character in this brand new blooper reel below. 🤣
We also found some other behind-the-scenes videos from Stranger Things Season 4 that we thought you would like. With the news of Stranger Things Season 5 being the end of the series, we’re watching all these videos before we have to say our final goodbye. I don’t think we’re ready for this story to end. 😭 Until then, have a laugh with our friends from Hawkins, Indiana!
‘Cloverfield’ Film Finds a Director To Helm Next Entry
We have seen an incredible three Cloverfield-based films so far. The latest being Cloverfield Paradox on Netflix. The latest in the series also managed to lose steam for the secretive franchise. It went too far into the explanation of secrets that we had seen in the first two films. Once the wizard is discovered behind the curtain the game loses its momentum and fun. The upcoming Cloverfield film has found its director from Under the Shadow’s Babak Anvari.
The director’s Under the Shadow was a great piece of horror. It was entirely effective in its scares and story.
There is no word on where the fourth Cloverfield film will take audiences. But, that is for the best. These films have always been shrouded in secrecy and that is what has made them fun. Well… the first two films anyway.
The synopsis for Cloverfield went like this:
As a group of New Yorkers (Michael Stahl-David, Mike Vogel, Odette Yustman) enjoy a going-away party, little do they know that they will soon face the most terrifying night of their lives. A creature the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city, leaving death and destruction in its wake. Using a handheld video camera, the friends record their struggle to survive as New York crumbles around them.
We are happy to see that Anvari is going to helm this entry. We can’t wait to see what he brings to the franchise and to see what direction this entry takes.
