My friend Sarah tells a story of how, when she was very young, her mean siblings made her cry by telling her that a house in her neighborhood was the one from ‘The Amityville Horror,’ and that, by extension, they lived near the ghosts.  At first, I giggled at this story, then I remembered how creepy I found that film, and how terrifying it would have been, and I stop laughing.  Imagine if the cabin from ‘The Evil Dead’ were in your backyard?  Or the Bates Motel?  Or, heck, the entire village of Jerusalem’s Lot, leading us to today’s hainted query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) accidentally discovered a terrifying ghost in ‘Grand Theft Auto V’, and now I won’t climb the mountains anymore, asking: What’s the scariest locale in all of pop culture?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.

    The Overlook Hotel, Colorado Rockies, USA.

    To this day, if I’m staying in any hotel late at night, I still hesitate before turning corners, lest I run into twins (the not nice kind).
