About Free State Horror Stories

Free State Horror Stories is a video series that re-examines the best ghost stories from around Kansas.  A local video production company in Lawrence Kansas called Matty D. Media launched the series during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.  

Since then, we have documented the histories and horror stories from around the Free State.  We produced a 2-part series on the famous ghost stories at the former Kansas Governor Roscoe Stubbs’ Mansion (now a fraternity called Sigma Nu).  Our video crew also sent cameras inside the notorious Eldridge Hotel and its haunted Room 506 to explore the backstory. 

Season 2 of Free State Horror Stories featured a ghost-story competition.  Watch the winning entry below. 

 Production for Season 3 is underway at Black Jack Battlefield and Nature Park!

Season 1: Free State Horror Stories

Using Expert Paranormal Videography

The miniseries is shot with a variety of camera equipment. Some of the camera equipment used in Free State Horror Stories is the same equipment used by paranormal investigators. For example, Investigators with Kansas City Paranormal Group use a Zoom recorder when investigating allegedly haunted sites. The documentary crew uses the same equipment. The video series mixes a blend of cinematographers and local videographers to shoot different scenes. All of the footage you see is gathered by the production company the year videos go live.

GHOST STORYTELLING COMPETITION

In 2021, contestants competed for a cash prize by telling the scariest story in “Free State Horror Stories, Season 2.”
