Morbid Anatomy – The Midnight Archive Online Video Series

I found an interesting blog called Morbid Anatomy and here is their video section of films called The Midnight Archive which is full of some bizarre videos for sure.

Here is from their About page:

THE MIDNIGHT ARCHIVE IS A NEW WEB SERIES WHICH AIMS TO DOCUMENT THE EXOTIC, THE STRANGE, THE ECCENTRIC AND THE TRULY UNIQUE. OFTEN DARK AND ALWAYS ON THE FRINGE, THE SERIES PUTS AN HONEST LOOK INTO SOME OF THE MOST FASCINATING PEOPLE, PLACES AND ARTIFACTS THAT MANY PEOPLE ARE WILDLY UNFAMILIAR WITH. FROM A WOMAN WHO MUMMIFIES PETS TO THE LARGEST COLLECTION OF AUTOMATA, THE IDEA IS FOR THE SUBJECT MATTER TO TELL ITS OWN STORY AND GIVE THE VIEWER JUST A TASTE OF SOMETHING ‘UNUSUAL’. NO DRAMATIC STINGS, NO EDITORIAL DRAMA – JUST THE FACTS.

THE SERIES’ CREATOR WAS INSPIRED BY AN INSTITUTION IN HIS HOMETOWN CALLED THE BROOKLYN OBSERVATORY. IN 2010 HE WAS ASKED TO LECTURE THERE ON HIS COLLECTION OF MID-19TH CENTURY 3D DEMONIC STEREO-TISSUES AND WAS AMAZED AT BOTH THE VARIETY AND THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE THAT CAME TO THE EVENT. TALKING TO JOANNA EBENSTEIN – ONE OF THE PROPRIETORS OF THE SPACE AND CREATOR OF THE MORBID ANATOMY LIBRARY (MORBIDANATOMY.BLOGSPOT.COM), IT SEEMED THAT THERE WAS A GROWING INTEREST IN THE ESOTERIC. SO AFTER MUCH BACK AND FORTH – THEY DECIDE TO UNDERTAKE FILMING SHORT PIECES USING THE OBSERVATORY AS THEIR HOME-BASE.

THE SERIES WAS CREATED BY RONNI THOMAS A BROOKLYN NY NATIVE WHO HAS HAD A LONGTIME FASCINATION WITH THE BIZARRE AND THE UNKNOWN. HIS FILMS HAVE SHOWN ROUND THE WORLD AND HE HAS WRITTEN FOR NUMEROUS FILM AND ARTS MAGAZINES (OCCASIONALLY UNDER THE SILLY POST-PUNK NICKNAME RONNI RAYGUN). THE MIDNIGHT ARCHIVE IS THE FIRST SERIES TO BE PRODUCED BY A NEW ONLINE ‘NETWORK’ HELLOBOX.TV.

And here is a list of the videos, two of which i have embedded above and below. The top video is a fun ghost story, and the lady in the second one kinda creeps me out. Enjoy!
