I know some Supernatural epís are based on actual folklores and superstitions, is there actually a place in Wyoming with railway lines laid out in the shape of a pentagram :blink:
Was there ever such a thing as a deal making demon?
The deal making demon...depends on what you're willing to believe I guess! Who are we to argue with Kripke :lol2
The cemetery, while not in Wyoming as far as I know, is believed by some to exist just out of Lawrence (OMG) Kansas.
|The unincorporated area of Stull, Kansas, which lies just west of Lawrence across Clinton Lake, contains a cemetery that a popular local urban legend claims is a "gateway to hell." In 2003, a church that stood next to the cemetery was torn down after years of abandonment.|
That's from Wikipedia...found it a while back when someone did and interview (might have been the Paley Festival) and they mentioned that Lawrence was chosen for a reason!Stull Cemetery
That's the page about it
Thanks man..should have used google too :D
Kripke and Co are freak'n unreal. I never know there was such a dark side to the US. Going back to the Crossroads ep, Dean was talking to Sam about a muso called Robert Johnson- how he sang about Hell Hounds and Crossroads...there REALLY is a man back in the 40's that sung about Hell Hounds and Crossroads. So even back in the 40's people were believing in Crossroads and deal making Demons-Voodoo stuff.
It'll be V interesting to know where the concept of the deal demons :fire came from and how it originated
