Looking for a scene right out of a horror movie in New Jersey? Check out these locations to be scared stiff this Halloween.


  1. The Devil’s Tower (Alpine) was built in 1910 by Manuel Rionda, a plantation owner, who wanted to give his wife a panoramic view of New York City. However, when she looked from the tower, she saw her husband cheating on her and, as a result, jumped from the top. There have been several attempts to demolish this tower, but construction workers suffer the same fate as Manuel’s wife so it remains standing. It’s also rumored that creepy noises and screams echo inside and circling the tower 6 time can cause a ghost to appear.

 

  1. The Gates of Hell (Clifton) leads to underwater tunnels and sewers, and supposedly the Devil himself. People who have ventured into this tunnel recall total darkness and haunting sounds, but those who have returned clearly did not make it very far. Other than animal bones from sacrifices and hidden rooms, Red Eyed Mike waits far below by the ‘portal’ to hell.

 

  1. The Trenton Psychiatric Hospital (Trenton) is one of the few psychiatric facilities that is still standing in New Jersey. The director, Dr. Henry Cotton was known for believing in curing mental illness by removing organs. He commonly experimented on his patients without anesthesia and most of them died under his care and now haunt the building. Many say they can hear screaming and the victims even manifest as shadow figures.

  1. Clinton Road (Clinton) is rumored to be one of the most haunted places in New Jersey. The most common story about this location tells of a ghost boy who sits under the bridge who returns the coins you throw in. In addition, ghosts, the occult, and even KKK rituals have been said to be held in a certain corner. There have also been appearances of eerie writing and graffiti which have kept New Jersey residents in fear for years.
