Graveyard Shift

10 Creepy And Terrifying Houses In The Woods

On a blustery and tumultuous night, you may find yourself taking a shortcut through the woods. Down a long dirt road, your car runs over something that punctures your tires. The rain splatters against your windshield as you shiver in your seat. Then you see, off in the distance, a house. It's just visible through dark tree branches, but if you can make it there, you might find a comfortable and dry place to rest your head for the night or even someone that might help you. At the very least, they might have a phone you could use. What's the worst that could happen?

Here are a dozen creepy houses, found lost and forsaken in the deep, dark woods. Who used to live in them and where did they go? And who - or what - might you find lurking inside these houses today?
