In the realm of mortals, life may seem to be closing in on black and white. We lead
our lives with the orientation that only the quantifiable, observable and overt are
deemed to be true. However, in the realm of the endless, human beings are mere
mortal creatures and truth is not a matter of great importance. It is a world where
scary creatures lurk, ghosts and mummies cause mayhem, and humans are at the
mercy of unfathomable paranormal events.
Many ghost stories and urban legends about scary creatures have been circulating
throughout the years. Despite these, people are still skeptical as to the veracity of the
ghostly figures in these stories. Stories cant seem to stand against the strong mantra to
see is to believe.
These scary creatures are described as undead entities that reanimate restless spirits
wanting to take revenge for their untimely deaths. Ghosts are just some of these
undead creatures lurking in the shadows of urban legends. Ghosts are restless spirits
of dead people that usually haunt the place where they once lived. As depicted in
films and books, these scary creatures haunt the living to search for justice and
closure for their tragic deaths. However, not all ghosts are depicted as such. In some
cases, ghosts just hang around us without any intention of causing some loud screams.
They are stuck in between heaven and hell because their spirits cant rest in peace until
they finish their purpose here in the realm of mortals.
Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, Kentucky is said to be haunted by scary
creatures we call ghosts. Once a two-story hospital accommodating tuberculosis
patients, this place was allegedly the dying place of more than 8000 TB patients from
1911 to 1945. The worst cases of these deaths occurred during the outbreak of the
disease in World War II. Documentaries and paranormal investigations said that there
are small, child-like features caught on camera. Scary wails and screams are heard in
empty rooftops and patios of the sanatorium. Moving shadows that have substance
and are able to walk across doors are allegedly seen in places where dying patients are
The current plan for the sanatorium is to transform it into a hotel to target the haunted
hotel crowd and regular hotel patrons.
Villisca in Iowa, considered as one of the scariest places on earth, is also said to be
haunted by the ghosts of the brutally murdered members of the Moore family. The
murder itself was arguably one of the most infamous unsolved murder cases in
American history. On June 10, 1912 was the last day when 6 members of the Moore
family and their two young guests were ever seen alive. They were dismembered by
an assailant who viciously killed them with an axe. The heinous crime is still a
mystery to be solved by the authorities as the killer is still unknown to this day.
To this day, the Moore house is said to be haunted by the spirits of its former
inhabitants. Curious visitors of the Villisca House claimed to have heard voices of
children who didnt exist. Efforts have been done to renovate the house, but it seems
that the scary creatures in the Murder House hinder the plan since the weather-beaten
house is the only witness to the nightmare that took place in the Moore household.
Whether ghosts or other scary creatures are just figments of playful imaginations or a
validation that the paranormal exists is still under scrutiny and discussion. As for now,
all we know is that as long as there are unexplained phenomena occurring and
haunting our dreams and wild imaginings, more stories about these forsaken and scary
creatures will be told.
