The Scariest Places in America

These asylums, horror film locations and other spooky sites show the creepier side of our country's history

What's Griffith Park's scare cred? The creek bed near the already-spooky abandoned zoo was the filming location for Michael Myers' first murder in the 2007 remake of Halloween. The park also hosts an annual Halloween haunted hayride and has also been a site of the Great Horror Campout, an interactive, only-the-brave-need-apply outdoor sleepover.
