Why Are Some Abandoned Places So Scary?

Posted on January 21, 2019 at 4:40 PM

You walk by a building such as a house or a factory every day. This building has been abandoned for years. You've heard stories and rumors as to how it got to be abandoned but you don't know which one if any are the truth. These stories have been passed along so many times that after a while whether or not you don't get scared easily you find that the next time you walk by the building it gives you the chills. You slowly walk by and stop and stare at the place. You don't know why but just looking at it and really taking it all in gives you goosebumps and all the stories you've heard go rushing through your head like a train. You stare harder and then you make up your own reason as to why it became abandoned and it scares you just thinking about it. Then it occurs to you, one question settles into your brain that you can't seem to answer. Why are some abandoned places so scary? Is it because of all the stories and rumors? Is it because knowing that a place is now desolate may hold dark secrets? Or is it because our brains naturally know that the unknown scares us?


Many times as children we all have that story of an old rundown house that we walked by. We know nothing about it other than the fact that no one lives there anymore and it's abandoned. Why does it scare us though? Perhaps it's because of what we're told, maybe it's because as kids and as humans the unknown just scares us. Maybe it's because deep down we know that if we got up the courage to go into the abandoned building that it truly would scare us.


As adults, this could be the same notion but then again not everyone is scared of creepy abandoned buildings and chances are adults aren't as prone to being easily scared of places as children. How much being scared is on the individual over the actual place? In some instances, some people are more easily scared than others and buildings give up creepy looks and some people aren't exactly scared by them but they are at the very least chilled by the place. Background of the building is again some part of the fear factor but overall there could be several factors as to why we sometimes find ourselves scared of an abandoned place.


It's simple, we take a look at a decrepit building that's been abandoned for years and naturally within our instincts and thoughts that sometimes get the best of us, we get scared, creeped out or at the very least eerie thoughts take over our brains. Sometimes it's fun to get scared and technically until we go in and adventure for ourselves this type of scare could be considered innocent and not really all that scary. So the next time your walking by an abandoned building or house and you stop and think about it, maybe don't think too long, maybe don't create a reason as to why it's scary or if it's haunted because if you do only bad things may come from it. You may just find yourself adventuring in and then who knows what will happen…
