Haunted houses are locations occupied by the spirits of beings who were familiar with a property or actually lived there. These spirits belong to persons who tragically died in that environment. The ghosts make these houses scary through paranormal activity.
Haunting experiences are paranormal and can be either intense or mild, most of them being intense. They can be residual, intelligent, poltergeist, or 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 involves the full engagement of a living person by ghosts. The spirits are well, truly aware and even interact with the living. Other than their imprints, they have character and are hostile and frightening. Usually, these spirits are in need of delivering messages to the living or in search of people from their past lives.
Poltergeists are invisible. They are harmful ghosts that like to create havoc by moving or throwing objects and also making noises. The theory behind these types of spirits is that they were mischievous in their former lives and are suspected to have died young or during adolescence. It is debated that high emotional charges in some people can cause things to move intuitively.
Demonic haunting is of paranormal activity by spirits which are not believed to be those of former living people. The purpose of demons in the earth’s realm is to break down a human being’s spirit for possession. They impersonate people familiar to us or innocent children before manifesting their wrath on human beings. Demons often inflict physical injuries to those they inhabit, they are known to be unreasonable and irate, and when they are present a smell like that of sulphur can be felt.
The American culture has featured haunted houses for quite some time now. Tales of haunted people by spirits are evident in American writings, and some have motivated their fabrication in movies. They are terrifying experiences when real, but some of these stories are fiction just meant for selling horror movies and books.
