Ghostly Rescue: A Mother’s Cry

Friday, March 7, 2015, a mother and her daughter were returning from visiting the mother’s parents, when the car struck a cement barrier and went into the water. There were no skid marks. The cause of the accident remains a mystery. (Note: New reports are focusing on illegal drugs and prescription pain medication; however, toxicology results are weeks away.)

The wreck went unnoticed until the following afternoon when a fisherman discovered the car. A second mystery formed.

Utah police officers claim to have heard a mother’s plea for help emanating from the lake. The car was submerged. Driver, 25-year-old Lynn Jennifer Groesbeck, was dead. Known as “Jenny,” she did not survive the car crash. Her 18-month-old daughter, Lily, miraculously did. Properly strapped in her car seat, Lily endured 13-14 hours dangling upside down in the car before rescuers arrived. Experts credit Jenny for saving Lily’s life. Had it not been for Jenny’s attention to directions, the car seat may not have held Lily above the freezing waters. Jenny did in fact save Lily’s life.

But the story continues. The four Spanish Fork Police Department officers claim to have heard Jenny calling out to them. One officer had a brief conversation with the mother. However, the rescuers soon discovered that there wasn’t anyone who could have spoken with them.

The story has exploded. It is heart wrenching. The police officers are unwavering. This would not be the first story claiming ghostly intervention in tragic fatal accidents.

Urban legends abound of ghosts lingering at an accident scene. Some seek assistance for an injured child caught in the wreck. Some merely want someone to find their bodies. Search the Internet for “white lady” stories and you will see a lot of “true” stories. Nevertheless, readers may be surprised that some of these stories are actually true.

One story came out of Thailand. In 2014, a Phitsanulok mother, Kallaya Katenawa, told police that her dead son’s ghost attempted to speak to her. Media reports claim the spirit was telling his mother that he was murdered. The 13-year-old boy was found dead, and police ruled the death as an accidental drowning. Mrs. Katenawa told her story to a group of people who ultimately led police to uncover that the boy was indeed murdered. A group of teens beat him to death.

While I don’t think every story on the Internet is true, I do believe that ghostly interventions occur. I also believe the sincerity in the interviews by the Spanish Fork police officers. Baby Lily had someone looking after her. Was it her mother? Only time will tell. Know this: She is one blessed child.

Haunting of Cellblock 11 Released on DVD with Bonus Features

Haunting of Cellblock 11 Released on DVD with Bonus Features

Bonus features trump the ease of Video on Demand (VOD) purchases. And the Haunting of Cellblock 11 raises the stakes. Released last week, the Andrew P. Jones film includes two additional segments: the History of the Missouri State Penitentiary and a Director’s Commentary. Even though I purchased the digital copy, I have ordered the DVD just to get the bonus features.

The movie was filmed on location at the now closed Missouri State Penitentiary. Known as “the bloodiest 47 acres in America,” the prison operated from March 1836 to September 15, 2004. The prison housed male and female prisoners. Its history included riots, executions, and prison breaks. In addition, visitors have experienced unexplained paranormal phenomena. Visit the official Website, http://www.missouripentours.com/, for more information.

Also included in the DVD package is an on-going Commentary with Andrew and some of the actors. Andrew assures viewers that it is not the stuffy commentary feature other movies include. I cannot wait to view!

On a side note, this movie is NOT a “found footage” film. Found footage is a sub-genre of movie making where raw, unedited footage is assembled as the movie. Examples may be documentary films or collage films. It can be fictional or non-fictional. Basically the director uses film footage as a “found” object. Andrew did not use found footage for this movie. Further, all of the footage in the Haunting of Cellblock 11 was unique to the movie. This movie was filmed based on a script, which Andrew wrote.

I thoroughly enjoyed Haunting of Cellblock 11. It is a great horror movie. View it for what it is: an independent film shot on a low-budget. To review the movie otherwise does the film a disservice and reduces the writer’s credibility. Order your copy and make sure to watch the added features. I will!
