Its full-on Halloween season, and fright seekers are having a ball looking for persons, places, and things to scare the stuffing out of themselves and other people.

Here are 10 obscure, but nonetheless legitimately terrifying places to visit to get your share of goosebumps before All Hollows Eve:

#1. House of Faces in Belmez, Spain

In 1971, owners of the house first spied a face forming on their floor. After covering the floor with an additional layer of concrete, another similar-looking face started to form as if to take the place of the old one. Pretty soon, faces started slowly taking shape all over the house, reportedly appearing and disappearing at odd times of the day. Eerily similar is shape and expression, some people claim the faces are psychic manifestations of the mind of Maria Gomez Camara, the house’s owner.

Strangely distorted face on the walls…

Since the 1950s, this bridge has been the jumping point for hundreds of suicides. But here’s where the mystery lies: all of those suicides have been dogs! What compelled those countless canines to leap 50 feet down to their deaths in the churning waterfall? The only non-animal exception to this phenomenon was Kevin Moy, a man who, in 1994, began raving that his newborn son was the Devil incarnate, and so he threw the infant over the bridge before jumping in himself.

#3.Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles, California

This notorious downtown L.A. landmark has been linked to the 1984-85 Night Stalker, Richard Ramirez, a serial killer, rapist and burglar, as well as to the unsolved 1947 murder of Elizabeth Short, called the Black Dahlia. In February 2013, after hotel guests complained the water tasted funny, the body of Elisa Lam, 21, was discovered in one of the rooftop water tanks. Much later, strange security footage showed Lam interacting with an unseen entity inside an elevator, before running away as if being pursued by something invisible.

#4. Hagley Woods in Worcestershire, England

In 1943, four boys poaching on the Hagley Wood estates of Lord Cobham found female remains inside the hollow trunk of a Wych elm. The police were alerted, and they uncovered the body of a female who was killed by asphyxiation and stuffed inside the tree while she was still warm. The murder remained unsolved, and since then, graffiti has appeared in various places in town to this day, asking “Who put Bella in the Witch Elm?

#5. Sallie House in Atchison, Kansas

Delving even further into the paranormal, Sallie House is the site where a poltergeist lurks, with reports of both human and inhuman voices heard, objects moving by themselves, and unseen forces launching physical attacks on visitors.

However, these new employees have to consent to the practice. They have to be willing to undergo the rite because that’s what separates it from bullying or whatever form of oppression.

That is exactly what several flight attendants from Kunming Airlines in China wanted to point out. They are saying, “NO” to the airline’s unofficial tradition:
