Scariest Places in the World: Helltown, Ohio, USA

Boston Township in Summit County, Ohio–the locals call it Helltown. Founded in 1806, the township has had more than its fair share of folklore and legends. A crybaby bridge. A giant roaming python. A haunted abattoir. A school bus abandoned in the woods, the driver and young passengers allegedly murdered by an insane killer. The list goes on and on. However, it’s the old church emblazoned with upside-down crosses that’s believed to have inspired the moniker “Helltown.” Some say it’s the place of worship for the Satanists who populate the area, lurking along the closed-off roads, waiting to ensnare unsuspecting visitors.

The End of the World road. It’s been closed down for years.

Scariest Places in the World: Suicide Forest in Japan

At the foot of Mount Fuji lies Aokigahara Jukai–better known in the West as Suicide Forest. It’s 13.5 square miles of dense forest, little wildlife, and decomposing bodies…a whole lot of them. Up to 100 are discovered there in any given year. It’s a dark and forbidden place (I know from firsthand experience!), and worthy to be on any list featuring the scariest places in the world. 

A sign at the entrance to the forest urges travelers suffering depression to turn back and seek help.
