H and I were watching America Haunts on the travel channel last night. We saw a feature on Pennhurst State School or Pennhurst Insane Asylum. It is located in SE Pennsylvania. SO SCARY! It's an abandoned mental institution that was its own community, they had a barber shop, general store etc...all the buildings are connected by these amazing tunnels. I mean honestly, they don't even have to stage it to be scary. I got the chills a couple of times just watching the tour. EEK! They are currently staging it now to be ready next October. It really almost made me want to go to PA just to see it! (and Mames, Philly and the other PA girls of course!) Have you heard anything about it? Here are some images from it.
Made me remember how much I love a good haunted house. Do you? I was surprised to see last night that it's actually a big business, complete with sound and lighting pros and set/costume designers etc...
I was telling D that the scariest one I have ever personally been to was in Apopka, FL (outside Orlando). It was a 3-story farmhouse where a family of 5 was actually murdered. I was standing outside waiting to go in and I saw these shadows moving in the trees (I am deathly afraid of forests as it is). I looked again and there were these long, skinny figures moving around. Well, there were people on stilts covered with black sheets coming out of the woods. But only a few, like 3 of them. I would look again and they would be in the creepiest weird crouching position, then they'd get up and cover like 25 feet in 2 seconds. It was the scariest and most surreal thing I remember seeing. I about peed my pants.
Any good Haunted House stories??
