by Andrea “The Grill” of Geeky Gaming
Let’s kick off our very first Horror Month by going over 5 Horrifying Haunted Places! Be sure to come back tomorrow, we are doing 31 Creepy Countdown Videos in 31 days.
Hey Geeks, it’s Andrea. Today is kicking off Day 1 of something that we hope to do every year here at Geeky Gaming. We are doing a video every single day for the month of October. Not just any videos, though… Creepy Countdown videos. We have videos about video games, movies, haunted places and things, and so much more. It’s going to be a lot of fun and should keep you in the Halloween mood all month long. So let’s kick our first ever Horror Month off by looking at 5 Horrifying Haunted Places from around the world. Alright Geeks, let’s go.
- The Cassadaga Hotel, Cassadaga, Florida, United States
Due to the popularity of the hauntings and frequency of people having sightings and supposedly contacting the dead, the Cassadaga Hotel is now also a Psychic Center. Though I’m not really sure what that means. They have really taken the haunted aspect and ran with it. Visitors are urged to bring their cameras to capture “Spirit Energies”. They claim that their spirits are friendly and have many psychics that stay there to have active readings done on the hotel, but you’d probably have to stay there to decide for yourself.
- Moosham Castle, Salzburg, Austria
Commonly referred to as the Witches Castle, Moosham was built in 1191. It got its name from being the location of thousands of women being sentenced as witches. Hundreds of women were executed for allegedly participating in witchcraft and their spirits are said to remain. Aside from executions, these poor women were tortured and branded. Today visitors claim to hear doors slamming, banging sounds, footsteps, and seeing floating mists. Many believe the spirit of the man responsible for the torture of the women still remains in his living quarters. In the 1800s people believed there were werewolves killing and mutilating deer and cattle outside of the castle. Records are unclear whether the people sentenced were imprisoned or executed.
- The Myrtles Plantation, St. Francisville, Louisiana, United States
The Myrtles Plantation is known as one of America’s most haunted homes and has been featured and inspected on multiple ghost related shows. There are as many as 10 murders believed to have happened in the house, though there is only an official record for 1 of the murders. Visitors believe that there are at least 12 different ghosts haunting the location. If you want a chance to meet them, the Myrtles Plantation is now a bed and breakfast.
- The Sultan’s Palace, New Orleans, Louisiana, United States
Here is a back story to make your stomach turn. The Sultan’s Palace was owned by a Turkish man who said that he was a sultan, hence the name. After buying the home, he had what we will call a very active night life. He had several wives. Stories of women and boys being held there against their will were known at the time. He was into drugs, sex, and torture. It was all just rumor until one morning blood was seen coming from the walls and falling on the sidewalk. Once the police came to investigate they found body parts of 37 men, woman, and children dismembered and everywhere. And found the Sultan buried alive. Well, not exactly. It wasn’t actually the Sultan. It was his brother. Who had stolen the Sultan’s wives and earthly possessions. People believe that the real Sultan hired multiple assassins to kill everyone in the house.
- Island of the Dolls, Xochimilco, Mexico
Before we get too far on this one, I just want to say that anyone that knows me knows I have a long list of fears. My second on that list is easily dolls. So this is obviously a fun place that I dream of visiting one day. Anyway, the Island of the dolls was created because the owner at the time, Julian, found a little girl drowned on the island. Not long after he found a doll floating nearby and assumed it belonged to the girl. So he picked it up and hung it on a tree to show respect to the young girl. After the events he became haunted by her and in an attempt to calm her spirit and keep her happy, he began to hang more dolls. Julian collected dolls for this girl for 50 years before he was found dead. He had drowned in the same spot where he initially found the girl. Many people believe that the dolls on this island are possessed by her spirit. There are videos of the dolls eyes opening and closing on their own and visitors claim to hear the dolls whispering to each other.
