New Local Horror Short Inspired by Vermont’s ‘Haunted’ Places

Seven Days ran a great article last week on DeadFi’s upcoming anthology film, Dead Static:

One of Vermont’s most enduring legends is the haunting of a 19th-century covered bridge in Stowe. It’s said that a young woman named Emily, distraught after her lover failed to meet her for their elopement, hanged herself from the bridge’s rafters. Her vengeful spirit, it’s said, has haunted “Emily’s Bridge” ever since, moaning eerily and leaving clawlike scratches on the cars of anyone foolish enough to pass through the bridge late at night.

While the Gold Brook Covered Bridge has made it onto the National Register of Historic Places on its own merits, Vermonters still know it best as the putative home of Emily’s ill-tempered ghost. Folklorist Joseph A. Citro popularized the tale in his 1997 book Passing Strange: True Tales of New England Hauntings and Horrors, making it a favorite subject for local filmmakers seeking to generate Halloweeny chills.
