We all like to be scared a little bit around Halloween. I mean, that’s why we pay money to go to haunted corn mazes at night and allow people with chainsaws and axes to jump out and scare us to death, amiright? Well, if you’re looking for less of a heart attack and more of a real-life paranormal thrill, add these creepy U.S. locations to your weekend road trip list. Many of the homes were the unfortunate spot of grisly murders, and others are simply an unexplained hotbed of ghostly activity.
