On Location with FEARnet’s “Streets of Fear”

Today I had the pleasure of being interviewed by two aspiring young filmmakers from Chicago for an upcoming webisode of FEARnet’s “Streets of Fear” series. The new episodes of “Streets of Fear” will be featured on FEARnet’s website throughout October. This particular webisode will be about Boone County’s Blood’s Point Road. I met Josh and his assistant at the bridge overlooking the railroad tracks where legend has it several people were hanged, committed suicide, or have died in tragic accidents.

I think the interview turned out great and I am looking forward to seeing the final results. In the meantime, here is a link to a webisode from last year’s series: Streets of Fear: Shades of Death Road

  1. Hey, thanks for the info, I had no idea about Fearnet!

  2. Hi – in the early 1980’s my frinds and I would regularly go out to Bloods Point road after an evening at the Belford drive in. There was an old abandoned farm house with a headstone in the front yard.The name on the headstone was Katherine. There were also barns that were diectly across the road from the house. In 1983 I moved to California – I just recently returnd and drove to Bloods Point Rd. I could not find the house, nor cold I find any histoy on the house with the head stone in the font yard. It was real. I had many witnesses who saw it.I would love any help resaching this.

  3. Does anybody know where the barn was located?I hear that it is near where Bloods Point Road turns into River Road and I also here that it was on Poole Road. Can anyway clarify this?
