With virtual hangouts becoming the new normal during the pandemic, it was only a matter of time until a spirit from beyond decided to crash a Zoom. See what happens when four friends get more than they bargained for when they experiment with a ghostly prompt from the hit Beauty of Horror ‘Haunt This Journal’.


I wish I had a book like this when I was growing up,” laughs Beauty of Horror creator (and Life of Agony bassist) Alan Robert. “At a very young age, I became obsessed with everything horror and my friends and I would try to connect with the supernatural through Ouija boards and amateur séances. I took that playful curiosity from my childhood and poured it into every creepy page of The Beauty of Horror ‘Haunt This Journal’. A journal like this can be a very personal experience, or as you can see with the video, it can also be a fun group activity… just be careful who you invite!”
