Tea After Dark focuses on topics pertaining to horror, true crime, and the occult, with ties to social issues. From how watching horror movies alleviates anxiety, to how the fascination with true crime has gone too far, each week Tea After Dark uncovers a prominent theme hidden within the morbid subject matter.
Our first episode fittingly drops on Friday the 13th, and we’re covering the superstition behind what’s made this date notoriously “unlucky.” From religious folklore to cultural legends, we’ll uncover the mystic theories and remind listeners why it might be best to stay at home after all.
We’ll also briefly discuss the origin of the Friday the 13th horror franchise and cover the sadistic 1988 murder of Sharon Gregory, known as the Friday the 13th murder. Did the obsession with Jason Voorhees push Mark Branch over the edge in killing an innocent woman? Buckle up for a hauntingly jam-packed episode full of superstition, true crime, and more.
