SciFi Files – The Well to Hell

The Scifi files is a series of posts taking mysteries that I’ve found on the internet and finding out more about them. Are they real? Could there be a cover up? What monster may live on, in or outside our Earth?

This story as explained in brief on the pictures tells of a huge drilling operation that encountered a cavity. Using a microphone and other equipment they allegedly recorded the sound of the souls of the damned in hell. They stopped the operation in the hope that they would stay down there and not escape to the surface.

Ultimately this was revealed to be a hoax, the recording was traced back to a film, however the story continues to circulate. More on this story can be found here:

But in all of this there is a the other side – what if they did drill down and record the sounds of hell? What if they did just leave the hole? What better way to keep people away and to let the idea die than to discredit it, after all – if the way to hell had been found it wouldn’t bode well to tell everyone about it? Would it?
