Places and buildings, covered with legends and mysterious stories. A place from which run goose bumps.
Hunters for the thrill and adrenaline, glasses splashing in the blood, can not only jump with a parachute and running from avalanches. Less athletic citizens, the more prone to travel, prefer to go on a strange and scary place, where on the planet enough. And it's not always Pripyat, which actually happened a terrible accident. This is the place, about which legends. About which you can shoot horror movies.
1. Winchester House
160 rooms, 40 staircases and one big mystery. That's what is Winchester House - a huge mansion in San Jose, where they lived a mad widow and a whole family of ghosts. It all started with the fact that Sarah Winchester lost her husband and inherited his multi-million dollar fortune. Later, it was the spirit of the deceased, who said joyless news: money is made on human bones, all the Winchesters are cursed, and the ghosts will take revenge. To make peace with them, you can only start building a house. Preferably without stops. Because if hammering dies down, the woman died.
Sarah immediately set to work. Their new-found millionaire bought an old mansion in California and hired workers. The house began to appear new rooms, corridors, balconies and hidden passages. Floors braided web of stairs, which often led to nowhere - slowly goes mad Mrs. Winchester hoped to mislead pursuing its ghosts. House has grown by leaps and bounds, the construction did not stop more than a day, and went in the end as much as 38 years! Today at this grand mansion lead guided tours. Fend off the group can not - or quickly get lost in the maze of creepy rooms. In which, as they say, the ghosts are still waiting for their victims. 2. Forest Aokigahara
A gloomy forest at the foot of Mount Fuji would be amiss for the filming of "Blair Witch Project". Through the dense trees of the national park is almost breaks the sun, people here do not work compasses. Themselves as the Japanese called this place "Les suicides": from 1950 more than five hundred people have brought in a remote thicket own lives. By the number of suicides in front Aokigahara is just a bridge "Golden Gate" in San Francisco.
Instead of plates, "Do not throw garbage!" In the forest hanging ad requests to think about loved ones. Everywhere numbers written psychological services phones. Video surveillance. But people (most often it is a clerk in the office business suits tortured life) continue to regularly die: peaceful tourists stumble from time to time in the woods on a dead body, or "murder weapon" in the form of tablets and rope loops. In general, a nice walk!
3. Bridge Overtoun
Old arch bridge located near the Scottish village of Milton. Next to him - a powerful Overtoun mansion, which could become a refuge for dozens of disgruntled ghosts. But to the house we have no complaints, but the bridge there. In the middle of the XX century it started to happen strange things: dozens of dogs suddenly rushed to the 15-meter height and fell on the rocks and smashed to death. Those that survived - back and retry. The bridge has become a real "four-legged killer."
In ten years, died on the bridge a few hundred dogs. They all jumped from the same parapet. Watchdogs that pushed into the abyss, could not understand anybody. Unravel the terrible secret of trying to zoologists, veterinarians and other professionals. It soon became clear that under the bridge live rats and mink, which could throw the dogs chased hunting instinct. But there is another version - a pier, the bridge is located at the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead. Sensing something paranormal, the dogs were "on track" and died as a punishment for their curiosity. 4. The ghost town of San Zhi
luxury resort on the coast was built specifically for the local rich. Houses in futuristic style with round rooms and curved staircases were designed for those who are tired of ordinariness. However, during the construction phase, it became clear that San Zhi is cursed. Dozens of workers have died under strange circumstances: broken neck, falling from a height (even with a tether), died under the collapsed crane. Nearby residents were assured that the town is inhabited by evil spirits. There were heart-rending stories about the Japanese "death camp", which once was in these places.
At the end of the 1980 construction stalled. Investors are waiting to see what "space" San Zhi apartments will find their buyers, but the talks ended in nothing. Found out about the sinister features of this place, superstitious Taiwanese refused to invest in real estate. As a result, the resort has gradually turned into a ghost town. Bellied houses are in ruins, beautiful beaches deserted track overgrown with weeds. The authorities even want to demolish the abandoned resort, but a wave of protests were stopped: the locals are afraid that after the destruction of homes evil will walk to nearby villages.
5. Povegliya Island
The tiny island Povegliya near Venice, surrounded by a dense fog horrific stories. For several decades of the XIV century, during the raging "Black Death" in the world, were brought here plague infected people - terminally ill patients, who had no chance to survive. Here on the island, it was organized "mass grave" in which thousands of buried bodies. There is a version that the bodies are not buried and burned, because of what the soil on Poveglii 50 percent is made up of human ashes. However, this is only the beginning of a horror film. In 1922 on the island housed a psychiatric hospital. Almost all of her patients soon began to suffer from dreadful headaches and complain that the clinic is literally packed full of the ghosts of the dead. But it was only on hand the chief doctor who force-fed the insane neuroleptics and experimented on them. On the island still remained dilapidated building clinics with barred windows, beds and medical equipment rubble. There is also a bell tower (now it serves as a beacon), which, according to legend, kooky Dr. folded in the final story.
The village in the mountains Dzhatinga Indian state of Assam has long been nicknamed "bird cemetery". Every August in the sky above the local valley there are large flocks of birds that fell screaming to the ground. Mass suicide lasts for several days, some birds are killed, the rest, as if under the influence of hypnosis, easily yield to pull myself together. Farmers call this eerie phenomenon of "night birds falling" and especially going to evening campfire stare at the almost uninterrupted ptitsepad. Indians consider it God's gift.
Ornithologists many years studying the phenomenon Dzhatingi. According to one version, the culprit - geophysical anomalies that knock migratory birds off course. Another idea is that the birds fall into the powerful wind currents, lose strength, and takes down towards the village. Noticing razozhzhonnye fires, birds rush to the light, and does not calculate the distance die.
7. Island Puppet
To get into this realm of fear in the country of the Aztecs can boat on the famous canals Xochimilco. Opening types will please fans of the movie about a killer doll Chucky: every tree and every building on the island are covered with creepy bobblehead with empty eye sockets, broken limbs and crushed their heads. All this on the island gave a guy named Julian Barrera. One day, when the girl drowned in the canal, he accidentally found on the site of her death doll. Believing that the toy is associated with the spirit of the deceased, Barrera left her on the island. And then I found another doll. And I could not stop, continuing to collect discarded in the trash PUPS over the next 50 years.
Deranged Mexican (which, by the way, liked to lay the collar) even built a hut on the island, where he settled. A collection of mutilated toys continued to grow. Once an island suddenly went under water (in Mexico this sometimes happens), and soon came up again, but its occupant had already disappeared. There were only dolls, look at that horror stories go indifferent to tourists today.
8. The stalemate Mary King
400 years old quarter of Mary King (the name of the owner of the majority of the local houses) was one of the busiest places in Edinburgh. The situation changed when the city came the plague. Legend has it that trying to prevent the spread of the disease, the authorities isolated the infected all in one area, then was surrounded by dangerous area blank wall. People were brought to a standstill Mary King during several epidemics, and they died, left without any help from the outside. Among these unfortunates was Annie and the baby - a little girl who was excommunicated from his parents and locked in the "city of the dead" because she was infected. It is known for certain that only a part of the legend - a fiction. In fact, no wall was not, although quarantine infected who visited a doctor there. Today, underground quarters Edinburgh (over them for a long time to build a new town) turned into a tourist attraction. Why have not ceased to be terrible. The stone labyrinths better not to go without a guide, and lantern should insert new batteries - without light in the cave to do nothing. There are stories that the impasse Mary King is teeming with ghosts of dead people, and some of the "lucky" enough for the knees ghost baby Annie.
