Haunted Houses - Fake Or Real?

Haunted Houses - Fake or Real. What's my opinion?

Haunted houses and places have been a subject of debate for centuries. Are they real or fake? The debate rages on, with many stories and accounts on both sides. This intriguing topic not only delves into the supernatural but also probes human psychology and the power of suggestion.

The world is teeming with haunted houses, from the infamous Amityville Horror House, where a family's terrifying experiences spawned a best-selling book and a series of movies, to the enigmatic Winchester Mystery House, a labyrinthine mansion built to appease the spirits of those killed by Winchester rifles. These are just a glimpse into the countless local legends and folklore that shroud haunted houses and places in almost every town and city worldwide.


Some other famous haunted places and houses include the Tower of London, which is reputed to be haunted by numerous ghosts, including Anne Boleyn and Henry VI; the Banff Springs Hotel in Canada, where guests have reported sightings of a ghostly bride; and the Stanley Hotel in Colorado, which inspired Stephen King's "The Shining" and is reputed to be haunted by several spirits.

Additionally, the Eastern State Penitentiary in Pennsylvania is known for paranormal activity, and the Myrtles Plantation in Louisiana is believed to be haunted by numerous ghosts from its past. These are just a few examples, as haunted places and houses can be found worldwide.

The Amityville Horror House is notorious for the terrifying events allegedly occurring there. In 1974, Ronald DeFeo Jr. murdered six members of his family at the house. A year later, the Lutz family moved in but fled just 28 days later, claiming that they had been terrorized by paranormal phenomena. Their accounts inspired a bestselling book and a series of movies, contributing to the house's reputation as one of the most haunted locations in the United States.

The Winchester Mystery House, a San Jose, California mansion, is a testament to the unknown. Once the residence of Sarah Winchester, widow of firearm magnate William Wirt Winchester, it is renowned for its size, architectural curiosities, and lack of any master building plan.

Legend has it that Sarah Winchester built the mansion to confuse and trap the spirits of those killed by Winchester rifles. The result is a maze-like structure filled with staircases that lead to nowhere, doors that open into walls, and other puzzling features. Today, the Winchester Mystery House remains a popular tourist attraction, shrouded in mystery and intrigue.

The Queen Mary Ship is rumored to be haunted. It has a long history, and many reported paranormal experiences on board. Some people claim to have seen or felt the presence of spirits while on the ship. Whether or not you believe in ghosts, visiting the Queen Mary can be an intriguing experience.


What's my opinion on this subject?

I am a believer because I witnessed so many unexplainable things firsthand. Let me give you a few examples:

Once, I was on holiday in Italy with a close friend. We rented a beautiful big old house that was not expensive (soon we discovered why). There was an entity in one room on the second floor. We weren't welcome in the house.

It's bizarre when you feel you are not welcome somewhere without anyone literally saying this. We tried not to be in the home as much as possible, but at some point, we had to go in to shower and sleep.

The entity opened doors that were closed, and it scared the living daylight out of us. At some point, we slept outside.

I detailed what happened in my book My Most Memorable Psychic Readings And Personal Stories.


The lovely Leah Guy invited me for her podcast series about a haunted house she had bought. We were talking about the demonic entity being there when I suddenly saw myself standing in her backyard.

I walked deeper into her backyard and went slightly to the right. I felt the presence of a mass grave where several women and babies/young girls were buried. Listen to this episode.


I heard someone walk up the stairs of my house when I was almost asleep. I thought it was a burglar, and my heart rate went through the roof. I wasn't a burglar; it was a dark entity that tried to scare me. And boy, did he scare me!

He managed to mess up my built-in closet, and I don't think I've ever been more scared than that night. In my book, you can read about this story and other unexplainable events I witnessed.


Do you have a haunted story you want to share? I would love to read about it in the comments.
