Scariest Place in a House?
« on: March 19, 2017, 07:06:07 pm »
 This is a weird question but its the one of the more coherent things on my mind right now.

I was thinking about doing a story based on the scariest place in a house.
Personally, I think the scariest place in a house could be your own bedroom.
Its where you depend on the room itself to keep you safe at night(or day), where you are your most vulnerable, trusting the flimsy coverings over you to keep you out of harms way as you sleep.
And I dunno how many other people think this way, but I was curious to see how many people think this way too.
Or to see how many people have other opinions.
What is the scariest place in a house?

I think the scariest place in a house is a closet. I can't stand looking into dark ones, I can't stand having mine open at night, I just hate em.

probably a bedroom
I dunno I've had a lot of bad things happen to me in bedrooms,,,,, I can barely stay more than ten minutes in my old room sometimes
though certain basements can be scary too
I went to this open house today and this thing was built in 1900, and the basement hadn't been renovated since save a few water damage repairs, so it had the original brick and it was really dark and small. The stairs were also really steep and scary, like someone most definitely fell down those at one point.

Oo: ye!! I never lived in a house with a basement,, but I bet they could also be scary too. They tend to be a lot cooler, the ones I have been in, so I would probably end up sleeping in the basement if I ever get a house with a basement... Twice the scary I s'pose. Thank you for sharing!!

I don't really have a specific room that scares me the most just generalized to unoccupied rooms especially with closed doors and no lights so commonly that be closets, attics, and basements even if their nice looking.

I find it amusing how some of you believe that the basement is the most scary part of a building. While I underatand how the basement could very easilly be considered scary, it's also considered a shelter during a storm or in any emergency for that matter. I also have a tiny basement that has the furnace, septic tank, and water heater all in the same room, making it very busy and not that scary. I think the creepiest part of a house isn't a room at all but rather the road between rooms, the hallway. Why is the hallway so menacing to me? The hallway is often the darkest part of any house and it typically has many corners and crevices for unwanted guests to hide as well as being the connection from a threat to your bedroom door. The bedroom also has a reputation for making a lot of noise in my house and I'm sure for others as well. Noises from the superstructure normally echoe throughout the house but our busy lives keep them mute for the most part, but at night, these noises are fully audible and rather creepy, even suspenseful. These noises always seem to sound like they come from the hallway because of an echo effect, but it still seems sinister to me.

The basement. It's always freaked me out. I used to sprint upstairs after turning the light off until I was about 14. Idk why but they've always given me the creeps. It's kind of funny though because my bedroom is now in the basement so I've gotten used to them but they can still be creepy

At my house at least it's the basement. It's unfinished, so the floor is all concrete and there random wooden and metal beams where walls should be. There bugs everywhere, and they won't die with any bug spray we try. There's a stain on the wall at the bottom of the stairs that looks like blood, as though someone had fallen down the stairs and cracked their skull open there. All of the light bulbs are just dangling from a wire from the ceiling. I personally don't mind creepy places, so I'll go down there to grab stuff from storage all the time. My mom, however, refuses to go down there alone, so whenever she needs to go down there she makes me go with her. Also, there a random padlock on the door to the basement that was there when we moved in. My mom always keeps it locked "just in case".

The creeky attic?!
But it really depends on the house and what items u have in it etc.
A bedroom could be scary and haunted
A second stairway narrow and clausrophobic
A bathroom with a shaky light source
An empty living room
A kitchen that feels eerie and dark
All could be scary

Personally, I find the upstairs to be scariest, especially when I've just come home from school. I always have an irrational fear that there will be an intruder in my house when I get home, so my brain jumps to the conclusion that maybe there's a person hiding up there. (I come in through the garage, so if someone heard the garage door open they'd likely have plenty of time to hide somewhere.)

Yeah.. I can't bring myself to stay upstairs very long if I'm home alone. It also feels like it's hard to escape from up there. For example, if a fire started in the living room, or if an armed person broke in, it would be much harder for me to get outside safely if I wasn't downstairs.

OOOOOOH Oo:
Sounds real spooky!!!
Do you think you could show some pics of that basement if possible??
Sorry if that sounds like a weird question!
It just sounds really spooky and neat.
You don't have to if you don't want to, though!!
 Thank you for sharing!!


And thanks to everyone else who replied!!

Anywhere with lots of windows.
If it's dark outside, there could very well be someone watching you. You're trapped, essentially.
If something or someone is in your house (under a bed, in closet, behind shower curtains, etc.) there's more of an opportunity to run.
You're stuck inside and can't go anywhere if they're outside.
I read lots of stories about people being stalked this way, so dark windows kind of creep me out.
Oddly enough, if they're covered by curtains or blinds, I'm perfectly okay.

Garage because it makes weird noises and you can get locked inside it, and since it doesn't have air conditioning it is doom. Also the attic, which has black widow spiders yoikes

  I would have to say either a closet or the kitchen. Think about it, there's a number of possible murder weapons, and a lot of accidents occur there. But that's only my opinion. I geuss if you live out in the woods like I do your front and back yards can be scary.

In our house, we have two attics. One has an easy to access door and I go there to get books and then there is the attic that has a ceiling door. I have only been in the second one once. Other than the ladder and a small wood platform, there is nowhere to stand but insulation. That attic is the scariest. The safest? The living room. Hope that helped.  :D
