Cult of Weird is your source for daily weird news and "online museum of oddities and curiosities." Deep within the hive, we spend countless hours every day curating weird news and unearthing true stories of the bizarre, mysterious and unexplained.
- Why are 150-year-old skeletons being found in old buildings across the country?
- What is a hillbilly hairball and why does it portend death?
- Who is the rightful owner of Lee Harvey Oswald’s coffin?
- What is a bone-eating snot flower?
- Where can you go to find the world’s largest colon?
- What have people done because a Ouija board told them to?
- Why do the eyes of a mummified child seem to open and close on their own?
These are just a few examples of the things we set out to explore, where science, mysticism, folklore and superstition blur.
Launched in 2010 as an excuse to seek out strange headlines, weird facts, and historical mysteries, the Cult has grown into a thriving community of curious minds, serving up daily oddities to over 1 million visitors a year. Cult of Weird content has been featured by Chris Hardwick on Comedy Central’s @Midnight, National Geographic, Rue Morgue, Movie Pilot, and even Elvira, the Mistress of the Dark herself.
