What is it that makes a building or even a whole town haunted? Well in my opinion it is the creepiness. Seeing shadows not knowing if it’s your own shadow or just something that shouldn’t belong there. Also the noises but this is the same thing, is it really someone or did one of your friends something without him notice it. The history is for me very important so you know what happened here in the past. I for one belive that there is more then most of us know. Well let’s start with my top 5 of creepiest placeses in the world!

#5 old changi hospital – changi, Singapore

It was built in 1935 as part of the old changi military base. Back then it was used as a prison and torture camp during the occupation by japan. After that it was a hospital until 1997. The old hospital is now haunted by the past with Japanese soldiers, execuded people and the patients that died here. There was sight of an old man walking the halls, children in the yard and Japanese soldiers running around.

#4 Waverly Hills Sanitorium – Kentucky, United States

Waverly Hills was originally a two-story wooden building that was opened in 1910, however the building you see today was constructed in 1926. It served as a tuberculosis hospital throughout the early to mid 20th Century. It is believed that as many as 63,000 patients died there. The death toll as well as the supposed mistreatment and questionable experimental procedures on patients.

The Waverly Hills Sanatorium has built a huge reputation over the years as it's open for more people. This has thrown up some incredible evidence over the years. It has featured on shows such as Ghost Adventures, Ghost Hunters (TAPS), and our very own Most Haunted.

there are vast amounts of varying reports, including full bodied apparitions, fleeting shadows, screams from empty rooms, footsteps, sudden cold spots, and disembodied voices among many others.

#3 Château de Brissac, Maine-et-Loire, France

Originally built in the 11th century as a castle by the Counts of Anjou, Château de Brissac was rebuilt in 1502, by Charles II, Duke of Brissac, who gave it its name. This noble castle is the tallest in France, and it exudes old world charm, but one of its past residents has shocked more than one visitor.

A double murder that occurred sometime in the 15th century within the walls of the castle, has resulted in one of the more popular ghosts of the Château de Brissac, that of the la Dame Verte, or “Green Lady”. The current residents (the current Duke of Brissac and his family) have become accustomed to her roaming the rooms, but she has scared many a guest. She is often seen in the tower room of the chapel, wearing her green dress. What’s most terrifying however, is her face. If she looks at you, you’ll see that her face has gaping holes were her eyes and nose should be, resembling what a corpse would look like. As well as her sighting, her moans are also often heard throughout the castle in the early hours.

#2 Babenhausen Barracks – Hesse, Germany

this place is now a museum, the ghost of World War II German soldiers have been seen in uniform. Lights are known to turn on and off by themselves and voices are heard all over the place. German soldiers are often heard shouted out in the middle of the night, and is a commen sound to be heard here.

Soldiers who have visited museum and picked up a telephone have reported hearing a woman talking backwards.

#1 Island of the Dolls – Xochimilco, Mexico

well, the story about this one is weird and i don't know if this is haunted or it was all in Julian Santan Barrera's head but either way it's creepy as hell.

Legend says that three young girls were playing near the water in the 1920’s, when one of the girls fell in and drowned in the murky waters. Locals believed that ever since her death, the young girls’ spirit has been unable to leave the island. It soon grew quite a reputation as a haunted place, and locals wouldn’t go near it at night for fear of what they may see.

julian santan barrera moved to this island leaving his fammily behind, but as soon as he came here he said that the girls where talking to him and wanted to play. the girl was trapped on the island she had said to him. and then he decided to put these dolls everywhere.

Julian later told his nephew that it was becoming more difficult to appease the young girl’s thirst for these dolls, with him seemingly worried that she wanted him to join her in her watery grave. The same day he had this discussion, his nephew was returning to the island, when he found his uncle face down in the canal. His body was in the same spot where the little girl had apparently drowned seventy years before.

Today, tourists to the island often speak of the doll’s eyes following them. Others have also reported that the mutilated dolls whisper to them, especially at night. Julian’s ghost is also said to remain on the island, as well as the young girls’.
