5 Creepy Real Places Horror Games Should Visit, Part 5

I started this series in 2010, and I’ve been sporadically returning to it about once a year since. Aside from making a solid argument for the adoption of hermitude as a life style, this series is super fun to write. It’s admittedly a little unsettling to think that this wonderful planet we call our home, with all its beauty and splendor, could also be hiding churches made from bones, a museum dedicated exclusively to the majesty of penises, a sescluded island populated by deadly snakes, and another that’s gradually succumbed to an infestation of creepy dolls.

That’s not even the worst of it. I’m sure you haven’t forgotten the Aokigahara Forest, a 35 square kilometer patch of foliage that rests at the base of Mount Fuji. Hundreds of people have ventured into those woods with the singular goal of dying, resulting in its being given the absurdly horrific monicker of Japan’s Suicide Forest.

I wanted to write this sooner, but it took me awhile to find a batch of locales that were nightmarish enough to warrant it. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed by these places, so without further adieu, let’s take a look at five more terrifying places.

    Fascinating stuff. I’d probably prefer one of those cliff coffins to being 6 feet under. Another (albeit much more mundane) wierd place is Lilly Dale, western NY, a very small picturesque hamlet of victorian cottages that happens to be inhabited ONLY by mediums and purveyors of the supernatural. Some strange vibes there, my friends.

    There’s a great episode of Destination Truth, season five, that features the hanging coffins. I highly recommend checking it out if you can find it. (I had to get it from a torrent site) Also, a previous season featured the suicide forest in Japan and Isla de Las Munecas, the island of dolls.

    Do you post this lists somewhere else? I’ve definately seen this one before (yesterday/ today).

    • This list should’ve only been posted here!

    I think that the City of the Dead is eerie and beautiful. I could totally see that as a film location, or maybe better, a location used in an Junji Ito comic.

    Also, I love the photo of the wolves’ mouths for the fetish market.

    The hanging coffins looks like it could be a level in an Uncharted game. Could you imagine Nate climbing up those and having a skeleton or two tumble out?

  • The church is so creepy. Can you imagine going inside alone and suddenly one of the “statues” turns slightly their head? OMGggggggggggggggggg

    Regarding Capela dos Ossos (Chapel of Bones) you’ll get surprised to know that, actually, there’s another chapel like that in Portugal. It’s located in Alcantarilha, in the South of Portugal and it’s actually some mere 300 metres of my vacation house… lol
    Been there sometimes and it’s somewhat upsetting. But a cool place, nevertheless.

    The said chapel is right next to the village’s main church, I’ll leave a link over here.
