During the World War 2, Nazis also held the castle and many executions were done here. Many people say that anyone who approached Malcanaise, the demon dog, will suffer a horrible death within three months.
Poveglia Island, Italy
The small island of Poveglia in Italy is one such place where the locals do not dare to go there and the fishermen refuse to catch fishes in the surrounding waters mainly because they fear that they might pull up dead bodies. During the bubonic plague outbreak, the island became a quarantine colony where many people were sent to die there. The sickly bodies were then burnt on the giant pyres. Today, the island is abandoned and many strange things have happened every since. Often, voices and screams are heard by the visitor which is why nobody stays here for long.
The Haunted Vicarage, Borgvattnet, Sweden
The Haunted Vicarage was built in 1876 and the first haunted reporting that came from here occurred in 1927. The first incident that took place here was that the person who resided here saw his laundry being torn from the clothesline from an unseen force.
