October is terrifying because, well come on, Halloween. There’s a distinct chill in the air. The leaves are falling wistfully from their branches. The whole thing reeks of hauntedness, frankly.
Sure, costumes and trick-or-treating are all fun and games, but let’s get to the heart of the matter. Halloween is based on All Hallow’s Eve, a pagan celebration of THE DEAD. That’s right. Dead people. And where there are dead people, there are hauntings. Why? How should I know. Do I look like the medium in Poltergeist? (Please say no.)
Some say the undead are benevolent, but restless. Some say they have unfinished business. And some say they are evil and want to kill you because you’re alive and they’re mad that they’re dead. Whatever the case, you don’t want to take any chances.
Do you think your house might be haunted? Are creaks and moans keeping you up at night? Here are 10 telltale signs that your house is haunted.
