The Ghost Frequency and #AmWatching

Last week I was watching an episode of Evil on Paramount+ and learned about the significance of 18.9 Hz frequency, also known as the ghost frequency. What???? you may be asking. Humans can generally hear in the range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz. If a sound falls outside that range, the infrasound range, it’s possible to still perceive it in other ways, sometimes in your chest, teeth, or skull. It can provoke feelings of fear or paranoia. In places rumored to be haunted where people report sensing something or someone in the room, it’s theorized these acoustic waves could be responsible. Some horror movies (Paranormal Activity is one) have even used infrasound to create those feelings in audience members. I found this fascinating, and you can bet it will be worked into the plot of future WIPs.

Hubby is out of town on business this week, so you know what that means – I refer to my list of movies and TV shows waiting in the wings. These are things he’s not interested in, and with him being so hard to please when it comes to his viewing, I’ve got a pretty extensive queue. On deck for this week is Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, The Bad Guys (animated movie on Peacock – the trailer looks hilarious), the new Father of the Bride with Andy Garcia (watching with a couple of friends), and finishing the last season of Castlevania on Netflix. I’m also excited about the new season of What We Do in the Shadows returning on Tuesday. I just love those crazy vampires.

Have a great week!

    1. I loved the first Paranormal Activity – the only movie that ever gave me goosebumps, so I’m with you, Priscilla. How have I been a horror fan this long and never heard about this frequency?

  1. I’ve got to let my daughter know that there’s a new season of What We Do in the Shadows. She loves that show!!! The New Dr. Strange movie was great and dark, very dark. The after-credits were great too!!

    1. I happened to catch a commercial about when the new season started and marked it on my calendar. I laugh so hard over that show! That’s exactly what I’d expect from the Doctor Strange movie, and at least I can fast forward to the important parts in the after credits.

    1. After reading about it, I started thinking about all those horror movies I’ve watched. I remember seeing Paranormal Activity in the theater, and it’s the first movie that ever gave me goosebumps. Now I’m wondering if it’s because of the ghost frequency, lol.

    1. I watched 1.5 seasons of Breaking Bad and I liked it, but can’t remember why I never went back and finished it. Don’t throw anything at me, Sue! Hubby seems interested in it, so maybe that can be next on our list.

    That is so interesting about the Ghost frequency. I never knew that! I hope you enjoy your TV watching while your husband is out of town. I have a list of TV shows that I want to watch when I get home from my trip.

  3. So cool about the ghost frequency. I won’t steal it, but could see it being useful in one of my stories. We are at an age when the occasional spouse travelling is like a mini vacation. We both tend to dive into things the other wouldn’t normally be interested. I started watching another K-drama called Alchemy of Souls.

    1. I knew it would catch your interest, Craig. I could see it turning up in a Lizzie and the hat story easily – feel free to use it! You’re right about it being kind of a mini vacation. I haven’t watched K-dramas, but I’m about three episodes from finishing Castlevania.
