Sources report that Sara Winchester, the ghost currently haunting the basement of 66 John Street, is scrambling to find a subletter before going abroad next semester. Winchester, who signed a yearlong lease to torment the tenants who live on the floors above, still hasn’t found an equally eerie banshee to replace her come January.
“This basement has everything you need: a washer and dryer to inexplicably start in the middle of the night and leaky pipes to bang on and scare the shit out of whoever is in the shower upstairs,” explained Winchester, who has been spooking college students in Providence for the past two years but now wants to spend a couple months in another paranormal culture. “Also, utilities are included, so you can flicker the lights on and off as many times as you want.”
“Ideally, I want to find a bone-chilling phantom who can recreate the creepy, bloodcurdling vibe associated with this John Street basement,” continued Winchester, who has been reaching out to friends within the supernatural community for the past several weeks. “At this point in the semester though, I’ll take any ominous spirit who needs a basement to haunt.”
