Alcatraz Island, USA
Alcatraz prison is one of the most haunted places In the world as it was home to a lot of notorious criminals such as Al Capone
In case you’re wondering why this prison is haunted, we’ll tell you a few reasons.
In 1933, the US decided to open a maximum security/minimum privilege prison to deal with the worst criminals of all time. Basically a real-life Arkham Asylum from the DC movies.
Any of the inmates that broke one of the prison’s many rules would be sent to what is called the “strip cell”
Before entering the cell prisoners must be stripped from their clothes. The cell had no mattress, no sink and of course no source of light whatsoever. Yeah and the toilet? Just a small hole in the ground.
Basically whoever enters this room has all sorts of hope and humanity removed from them, so there’s no surprise that some of their spirits still can’t move on from this place.
One of the most bone-chilling events that happened there was in the notorious 14D cell
A man died in the cell in a mysterious way where he was found strangled, security say that the night before his death he kept screaming that a creature with glowing eyes was trying to kill him. Creepy..
