Ghostly houses are basically inhabited by spirits of people who either occupied a house or were familiar with the environment. The ghosts in haunted houses belong to people from the past who were either tragically murdered or committed suicide in the houses they haunt. The ghosts make these houses scary through paranormal activity.
Ghostly encounters are supernatural and are usually powerful, though some are mild. They are of different types; residual, intelligent, poltergeist, and demonic. Residual haunting is typically memories or characteristics of the departed household that are believed to be imprinted in the environment. These type of haunting is visual and can also be heard. For example a figure cooking in the kitchen or conducting other activities or agonizing screams from tortured souls.
Intelligent haunting is complete apparition of a current household. The spirits are well, truly aware and even interact with the living. The spirits have personalities too, besides the memories, and are reported to be aggressive and unnerving. Their mission is to convey a message or locate a person they had unfinished business with by their time of death.
Poltergeists are invisible. They are destructive spirits that like to cause mayhem by throwing or moving objects and making a lot of noises. The concept around these ghosts is that they might have been ill-behaved when they were alive and might have died as young children or adolescents. It is debated that high emotional charges in some people can cause things to move intuitively.
Demonic haunting is supernatural and is done by spirits which are supposedly not of former living persons. The purpose of demons in the earth’s realm is to break down a human being’s spirit for possession. They usually pose as lost relatives or innocent children and don’t take long before they start exhibiting their evil characters. Demons are irrational, angry, cause physical harm to those they befriend and their presence is characterized by the smell of sulphur.
The American culture has featured haunted houses for quite some time now. Stories of disturbed household and haunting spirits appear in American literature a lot, and some have inspired the production of movies. They are terrifying experiences when real, but some of these stories are fiction just meant for selling horror movies and books.
In modern America, haunted houses are a form of entertainment. They are popular places people visit on Halloween holidays for exciting adventures. The purpose of these houses is to improve Halloween fun through fright and fun. These haunted houses are found in old mining areas, ghost towns or areas settled and inhabited long ago.
