Shudder with me
OK, so abandoned buildings, especially houses, are a fear of mine. For some reason I like scaring myself with the pictures people post on urban_decay (that, and I think some of the gritty industrial photos are just beautiful). This abandoned frat house in Texas is one of the creepiest things I've seen yet, right up there with a military prison in Edmonton and the über-scary Old Changi Hospital in Singapore. Something about it just strikes me as profoundly evil.

Ooh! What are the legends? Why is it abandoned?

pledges murdered during hazing

Goodness. Wouldn't something like that have made the news?

Those pictures are awesome - and, yes, a little scary. I'm not sure why, either. Maybe because *anybody* could be there, hiding out. Or maybe because so many scary movies are set in places like that.

Human misery really does leave traces behind, like a stain, and I'm betting all three of those you show above would feel "off" if you went inside.

Exactly. It's not the thought of ghosts--that part rather bores me--so much as the stench, somehow, of what has gone on in these places that lingers and makes them creepy.

PS I look forward to seeing your photos.
