Top Haunted Houses in America

For some, Halloween conjures up images of sweet children dressed as cows or kitty cats, innocently Trick-or-Treating as they tote a plastic pumpkin full of sugary treats.

 

For others, however, Halloween is a dark and mysterious evening, filled with unspeakable horrors: Witches cauldrons, one-eyed monsters and ghoulish ghosts.

 

If your Halloween tastes run toward the more sinister, then you’ll definitely want to check out our spook-tacular list of America’s (unlucky) thirteen most terrifying haunted houses.* If none of the houses on our list are in your town, consider a driving trip — a scare like this is worth it!
