The Boris Burglaries

Boris, Illinois

This group of intrepid students has collected evidence involving the mysterious disappearances of objects and people in Boris, Illinois – a location that seems to feed into anxieties towards empty spaces and the rural Other. Awakened by the dim light of modernity, what monstrosities circle on the edge of life, waiting to drag us back into the dark, or even worse, to erase us from history altogether?

Feel free to browse the news article that first discussed the letters related to these events, and continue to the follow-up if you’re interested. Be wary, though, that the shadows which have consumed Boris don’t consume you too. In this little town, it’s not only the abyss that gazes back at you.

Have these fading memories and dissipating records tantalized you enough to make a trip?
