Do you like horror movies and travel? Do you like to combine those two hobbies, leading to perpetual fear in a situation where your state of mind should be blissful and happy? I have some great news for you! You can now go on a horror trip and relive all your favorite fear-for-your-life moments from your favorite movies as if you were there! Because you would be there!
Am I selling it yet? I know, the concept pretty much sells itself. We’ve all wondered where that restroom from Saw really was. Which cabin it is that Leatherface uses to chainsaw people’s faces off. Where the event horizon lies after the crew turned insane due to prolonged periods of statis. Where the planet lies where the Nostromo crashed and the first xenomorph infestation spawned.
Anyway, I won’t tease you any further. Let’s take a look at the best horror travel destinations for all your death-defying traveling needs.
10. Isla de las Munecas (Mexico)
The “Island of the Dolls”, as they say in the Queen’s English, has a weird story attached to it. According to legend, a little girl died off the coast of this island over 50 years ago. After her death, dolls started washing up on the shore. The only permanent resident this island has decided he’d start hanging them all from trees. After a while, he just started collecting dolls at random and hung them. And now it’s a doll-infested island. Yay.
9. Chernobyl (Ukraine)
Remember when mommy told you to not push the buttons because it would screw things up? That’s what happened in the Chernobyl nuclear plant. Years later, the place is still deserted and to be avoided if you don’t want to die of radiation poisoning. But if that’s not a problem for you, this is the place to be! (Let’s be honest here: ghost towns are pretty damn awesome)
