"I had taken some photos with my android of my new apartment here in Buenos Aries to show friends on FB how I was trying to make it look more homey with candles, etc. But in one of the photos I noticed what I thought was a reflection or glare on the window -- until I looked closer and saw I'd kept the window open that night. So I increased the contrast in Photoshop and saw this weird little head complete with candle light reflecting on it's cheek!" -- Cheryl C. 960 1280

"I went on a ghost tour in Roswell, GA, which is about 30 minutes from where I live. We were walking through a cemetery and I snapped a photo. What I believe I caught is a full body image of a man who is know around there as the Scotsman who leads you around the cemetery. If you look to the right of the screen you can see what looks to be a face as well. Best image I've caught yet!" -- Kristi H. 960 1280

"This is an empty hallway in Building 64 on Alcatraz. The hallway is off limits to visitors and the entranceway has a metal barricade. I've been told that it looks like a person sitting in an electric chair. The only problem is Alcatraz never had an electric chair because they didn't have death row. Show with a simple point and shoot 35mm camera." --dollofvoodoo 960 1280

"I took this picture shortly after feeling a brush across my arm. So I snapped the picture in the direction that I felt. Sure enough, this little blue orb showed up towards the bottom of my stairway. When I zoom into look at it, it has a full color spectrum. Kinda like a bubble, but this was no bubble, of course! I did not see this at all before the picture, I just felt its presence. I might also add that the day this happened was exactly 9 years since my grandfather's passing and I can't help but to feel that it was his spirit." -- Beth92584 960 1280

Knott's Scary Farm (Buena Park, CA)

"In late fall, Southern California's Knott's Berry Farm morphs into the most-attended Halloween attraction in the world. In addition to heart-stopping rides like GhostRider (one of the longest and tallest wooden roller coasters in the world), Knott’s Scary Farm Haunt's elaborately themed mazes, like the brand new Trapped: The New Experiment, will give you memories you'll never forget … try as you might. Six sinister live shows, including my very own Elvira's Sinema Séance, all add up to the ultimate horror experience!" -- Elvira, Mistress of the Dark 960 1280

The Haunting of Lemp Brewery (St. Louis)

“I had the pleasure of walking around Lemp Brewery when I was filming in St. Louis for our 100th Ghost Adventures episode. The building alone is creepy, and to put an actual haunted attraction inside is freaky. Very cool history of the Lemp Brewery. A must-see.” -- Nick Groff, Ghost Adventures Investigator 960 1280

Markoff's Haunted Forest (Calleva Farm in Dickerson, MD)

“Ask anyone in the DC area for a Halloween pick and they’ll tell you to head to Markoff’s Haunted Forest, where they’ve been freaking out guests for more than 20 years. Haunted hayrides, zombie hunts and a walk through the Not-So-Fun House Maze are just a few ways your creepy adventure unfolds on one of 2 terrifying trails. Dress in your warmest clothes and bring your best running shoes. Beware of the chainsaw-wielding stalker ... and be prepared to get spooked!” -- Kwin Mosby, Managing Producer, Travel Channel 960 1280

“Such a classic family attraction! Beautiful sets and wonderful illusions. We definitely go through the Haunted Mansion whenever we're at Disneyland or Disney World! It's like having a Halloween experience year-round. Fun and spooky but not so scary that you would need to have your children in therapy for years!” -- Ed Edmunds and Marsha Taub-Edmunds, Owners of Distortions Unlimited Corporation 960 1280

Spooky Empire's The Ultimate Horror Weekend (Orlando, FL)

Spooky Empire's The Ultimate Horror Weekend (Orlando, FL)

Spooky Empire is a horror convention that takes place in my hometown of Orlando, FL, a week or two before Oct. 31. It feels like a 3-day Halloween party full of treats when you're surrounded by horror icons such as George A. Romero, John Carpenter, Robert Englund, Kane Hodder, Bruce Campbell and Elvira. Besides appealing to my love of Halloween, this hometown event offers me the chance to see family and reminisce about Octobers gone by.” -- Aaron Sagers, Geek Culture & Paranormal Pop Culture Expert 960 1280

Eastern State Penitentiary's Terror Behind the Walls (Philadelphia)

“Eastern State is by far my favorite supposedly haunted location in the country. And at Halloween, ESP gets even better. A haunted attraction in a haunted prison is cool enough, but the elaborate designs, effects and costumes at play here are artistically terrifying. I have been through countless scary attractions and Terror Behind the Walls is always good for a few startled jumps.” -- Aaron Sagers, Geek Culture & Paranormal Pop Culture Expert 960 1280

Salem Haunted Happenings (Salem, MA)

Salem Haunted Happenings (Salem, MA)

“History and Halloween enthusiasts alike would be challenged to do better than to visit Salem, MA. Of course, events really ramp up as Halloween approaches. The notorious history here is an indescribably tangible addition to any one of the town’s attractions. There are haunts like Count Orlok’s Nightmare Gallery for thrill-seekers, as well as tours and museums like the Salem Witch Museum to satisfy your more cerebral needs. -- Scott Cummins, Artist & Pro Pumpkin Carver 960 1280

Zombie Pub Crawl (Minneapolis-St. Paul)

Zombie Pub Crawl (Minneapolis-St. Paul)

“Sometimes for fun and sometimes to promote charitable causes, zombie crawls are organized public gatherings of people dressed up as zombies. In 2012, the largest zombie crawl was in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis-St. Paul), with an estimated 30,000 in attendance, making it the largest gathering of zombies according to Guinness World Records. It's not hard to become a zombie. Take some old cloths, cut them up and spray paint them with some dark brown and gray primer. -- Ed Edmunds and Marsha Taub-Edmunds, Owners of Distortions Unlimited Corporation 960 1280

KC West Bottoms' Haunted Houses (Kansas City, MO)

“On Kansas City’s west side is one of the most unique haunted venues I’ve ever had the displeasure of visiting. The KC West Bottoms area is made up of several late 19th-century buildings that were just made to be haunted houses! This “village of the damned” has 4 -- count ’em 4 -- epic haunts: The Beast, The Chambers of Edgar Allan Poe, Macabre Cinema and the granddaddy of ’em all, The Edge of Hell -- each one is a unique, must-see experience for haunted house afflict-cianados.” -- Elvira, Mistress of the Dark 960 1280

Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris

Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris

Perhaps the most well-known gargoyles in the world hover on Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Technically known as grotesques (true gargoyles have waterspouts as mouths), these monstrous creatures glare ominously down on the City of Light. 960 1280

Dragon statues guard Ljubljana’s Dragon Bridge, known by locals as the "mother-in-law" bridge due its forbidding and fiery guard. Dragons are seen throughout the capital city, as its patron saint St. George slayed dragons, according to Catholic legend. 960 1280

Manhattan’s iconic skyscraper, Chrysler Building, was originally designed as the automobile maker’s headquarters in the late 1920s. Architectural details, such as the building's gargoyles, were modeled after Chrysler automobile products, such as the Plymouth hood ornaments. 960 1280

The grotesques that hover on London’s Westminster Abbey are true gargoyles, with waterspouts for mouths. They’re also a creepy counterpoint to the statues of saints also on the church’s exterior. 960 1280

St. Vitus Cathedral, Prague

St. Vitus Cathedral, Prague

Located within the Prague Castle complex, Saint Vitus' Cathedral is an imposing Gothic church that holds the tombs of Bohemian kings and Holy Roman emperors. Beyond being utterly monstrous, the gargoyles nestled on this cathedral have a functional purpose -- they spew rainwater from the building's roof at an angle that keeps it from running down the walls. 960 1280
