  1. October 1987. It was a dark and cold night. Beaufort was quieter than usual although it was Halloween night. A group of children met at the town square to trick or treat. All of them were very excited and decided to start to look for houses. They arrived at this house. Suddenly, the door opened and they saw a light inside, so they thought there was someone in. They entered the house and they heard the door slam...

  2. Tom and Lisa moved to an old house. That is what they could afford. On that night, they saw a grey ghost floating in the corridor. They were terrified at first because the ghost was carrying a knife. They tried to escape but they couldn’t open the door. Then they decided to talk to him but suddenly, he disappeared. They went back to bed and the next morning they didn’t know if it was real or a nightmare.

  4. It was a winter afternoon of 1975, it was cold and windy, two children decided to go out to play in the forest. When they reached the forest they started running and running until they got tired. when they sat on a broken log lying on the ground they realized they were at the door of a very old and shattered house. They decided to enter because they wanted to see what was inside. when they opened the door they saw that everything was broken and full of dust, one of the children entered the room when he screamed for help, the other ran to where he was and saw a shadow that was taking his brother. he of fear ran to leave the forest and arrived at his house. He told his parents what had happened and went to look for the brother. After a month looking for it, nobody has seen it anymore.

  9. November of 1846. The Lewis family moved to a dusty and siniester-looking house. Upon entering the house, they found it messy. On the first night, when everyone was already asleep, a strange piano melody began to play, everyone woke up; terrified the brothers William and Emma went in search of their parents. A few minutes later, the piano stopped playing and began to hear a few steps towards the room where the family was. The bedroom’s door began to open very slowly…
    I woke up, and everything in a bad dream, to which today, everytime I think about it, I still horrified.

  11. On a Halloween night a family booked a country house for the night. What they didn't know is that the house was delighted. When they went to sleep, they began to hear noises in the kitchen and all the glasses fell. The father and mother went to the kitchen to find out what was happening and when they arrived they found two spirits. They ran to the room where their children slept and when they arrived they were not. They started looking for them throughout the house and in the end it turned out that the spirits were the children who had disguised themselves to scare their parents, since then the children have not returned to celebrate Halloween by punishment of their parents

  14. Un this House the terrifying story if the death of the daughter of the Jones family was discovered. The daughter's name Lucy she was 4 years old and died the night if November 13, 1955. Death was caused by a bad cold.
    The family was very affected by what they decided to sell the House and move to other country to try not to remenber anything about their daugther. Since that day all the families that have passed there say they don't want to go back to that I leave this.
    Lagoons show that cries were heard between hagas phrases that were heard in a specific room.
