How many places do you know that scare the shit out of you?
How many places are you aware of that give you goosebumps so intense that you can almost feel your soul tear away from your body? Well, here we bring to you few freakish places that will make your jaw drop.
In Philippines, there are a series of man-made caves in which there are several stacked mummies. This freaky place is called Kabayan. It is said that the Kabayan mummies are the best preserved in the world. This extensive network of caves is so vast that one can easily get lost in its tunnels. How's that?
Conjuring? Much like. Isla de las Munecas, or the Island of dolls is called so, because of all the dolls that are lying around the island. These dolls, most of them damaged, were tied to trees and littered on the ground, and what's disturbing is that one man did all of this. Imagine walking through a forest with damaged dolls tied to trees, peering at you through their eye sockets! Yikes!
This town of Brazil is not all scary or spooky, but yet it has an aura of odd mystery. This is because of the extraordinarily high number of twin pairs in the town! No one knows why this is, but it is speculated that Josef Mengele, a Nazi doctor who had performed 'twin experiments' to increase the Aryan population, had fled to Candido Godoi after the collapse of the Nazi empire, and continued the tests here, the result of which is the high number of twins in the town.
This is Japan's suicide forest. While even walking through it, you can find a dead body or two. Many tourists have also encountered such sites, and the large number of suiciders found here is the reason park rangers had to put up sign boards like life is precious and & think about your family.
This was the habitation of over 50,000 people, all of whom were evacuated after the Chernobyl Catastrophe. Due to high amounts of radiation, this once thriving place remains bare of any life form even after two decades. However, the Ukranian government has recently begun to allow a few visitors as the chances of radiation poisoning has come down.
It is said that this house, which was the personal residence of the widow of gun magnate William Winchester, is one large mansion of corridors that lead nowhere and staircases that don't end. This house is known for its lack of a master plan, and it's said that the construction of this house went on ceaselessly for thirty-eight years until the death of the owner, Sarah Winchester.
This village in northern India is known for one thing that makes it stand apart with strangeness - every year, around the months of September and October, several birds dive down here to meet their death. What is more interesting is that these suicides have been observed to occur only between 7pm and 10pm. Too strange, right?
The body farm is located at the University of Tennessee and is a giant stretch of land with various dead bodies scattered around. These bodies are in different states of decomposition and are used by the police to reenact the scenes of murders as originally as possible. These bodies are donated by those who wish to help catch murderers by being outside their grave.
This asylum of England seems to have been pulled right out of a horror movie by the way it looks! This hospital was started in 1903 and used to lobotomize and electrocute its patients. After it had run for 90 years, it was shut down in 1994, and since then it has been abandoned.
This is one of the largest Sulphur mines in the far east and is located in northern Japan. It was closed down and abandoned in the 70s, and all that remains are the residential complexes that were used by the employees at that time. What makes this place so damn spooky is actually the dense cloud of sulphur that envelops the area and the dark residues on its buildings!
