As he was led to the gallows, he suddenly cried out, "Anyone who dared to sit in this chair will die a sudden and violent death.” The chair is now nailed to a wall so that it won't be sat on anymore, as it caused those to sit on it to die in gruesome accidents and violent crimes.

TV Show: Weird or What
The infamous painting of 'The Anguished Man' is said to be incredibly haunted. It was given to an English man by the name of Sean Robinson by his very own grandmother. The artist is said to have mixed his own blood into the paint and committed suicide soon after completing the painting.
The painting is said to open a passageway to the "other side" and is haunted by the pained artist himself.
It really seems like my fake cobwebs, felt spiders, and a Scream mask hanging over the fireplace isn't going to cut it anymore.
I'll need to get my hands on something with a sinister, haunting story. It will be the perfect way to really creep out my friends and family.
