From a creepy robed figure seen staring from an upstairs window to an abandoned laboratory filled with sinister science experiments, we count the 10 creepiest things discovered in abandoned buildings.
10. Creepy Creature Chases Boys
In 2008, two friends captured this unsettling video while exploring an abandoned house in an unknown location. The house itself is old and believed by many to be haunted, but what these two see inside is far worse than any ghost.
As one of the explorers opens the front door, some sort of creature rushes towards them from out of the darkness. The creature, which appears to move on all fours almost looks as though it was waiting for the boys to enter the mansion. The pair run for their lives as the beast lunges towards them.
While the creature appears to be human, it moves more like an animal. It lets out a ferocious squeal, similar to a wild pig as rushes forwards.
What could this bizarre creature actually be? Is it a human or is it some sort of animal? In the comments section below, let us know what you think it was that chased these boys from the abandoned house.
9. Happy Birthday Eric
In 2009, Reddit user NeverEnoughMuppets claimed to have discovered something very creepy in an abandoned mansion not far from where he lived in Suffolk County, Long Island. The house was badly neglected and looked as though it was furnished in the 1960’s and 70’s. In one room, he found a pile of mail dated around August 1995, leading him to believe that this was probably when the owners had left.
He entered another room. This one was full of children’s toys. But not old or broken toys, these ones looked new, as though someone had played with them recently.
He continued to the kitchen where he found some empty bean cans which looked as though they had just been opened.
He made his was up the stairs to the second level. The floor was so warped that he had to be careful were he stood. Inside a bedroom at the end of the hall, he found hundreds of birthday cards – all wishing someone named ‘Eric’ a Happy Birthday. Each card looked as though it had been written by the same person.
He decided to climb the stairs to the third floor. This one even more decrepit than the last. Suddenly he heard a sound coming from a nearby bedroom. It sounded like a slapping sound followed by dragging. He froze, just as a very dirty pair of hands appeared from the doorway. A man began to drag himself into the hall making a guttural groaning sound as he pulled himself closer.
NeverEnoughMuppets ran down the stairs as fast as he could, turning to see if he was being followed. He made his way out of the window he had used to enter the house and escaped to safety.
He never returned to the abandoned house ever again.
8. Bathtub Full of Brains
This photo is said to have been taken in the basement of an abandoned hospital somewhere in the United States. It shows a bathtub full of human brains floating in some sort of brown liquid! The photo caused quite a stir when it first surfaced online with many believing that it had to be fake.
The police were reportedly notified shortly after the gruesome discovery was made. Because the bathtub full of brains was discovered in an old abandoned hospital, the grotesque discovery was simply put down to a very poor storage solution and no criminal charges were ever laid.
7. Abandoned Laboratory
In 2006, it was reported that a bizarre laboratory was discovered underneath an abandoned orphanage in London. It was said to contain the remains of hundreds of creatures, many of which were considered to be mythological. The specimens are now supposedly housed in the Merrylin Cryptid Museum and according to their website the collection includes ‘taxidermied dragons, the infant forms of werewolves (and) artifacts from ancient Vampyr nations.’
The collection was reported to have belonged to Thomas Theodore Merrylin, an 18th century cryptozoologist who spent his entire life collecting the remains of bizarre and unusual creatures from around the world.
The current curator of the museum, an artist by the name of Alex CF, is said to have inherited the bizarre collection.
Many skeptics have dismissed the story as the museum is not actually open to the public. Some believe that the specimens seen on the website are nothing more than very detailed works of art created by the artist himself.
While the truth about the collection may never be known, even the idea that a mysterious collection of cryptids was unearthed from beneath an abandoned London orphanage is unsettling. It is enough to make anyone lay awake at night, wondering what strange things might actually be buried in their own basement.
6. Creepy Doll Collection
When a group of explorers entered an old abandoned petting zoo they discovered something very unsettling. One of the barns was full of completely naked dolls.
While it is unclear exactly where this strange discovery was made it certainly doesn’t detract from the creepiness. Why was an abandoned petting zoo storing naked dolls? Was the previous owner collecting them or were they being stored for some other reason? What do you think the owner was up to?
