List Rules Upvote the places that go from harmless to horrifying when the sun goes down.

Why must the dark be so terrifying? How do areas so normal and inviting by day become places of complete terror by night? Why does the building parking garage you’ve walked through a million times get so terrifying the moment the sun goes down? Have those places always been full of an inky dread, and does the blackness of night simply remove any illusion of safety? While you think about the creepy locations at night that are somehow soothing during the day, remember: there’s nothing wrong with avoiding these places after nightfall, for the cover of darkness hides many a terrible thing from the unsuspecting person.

Where was the last completely normal place that frightened you to the core? Was it a late-night trip to the supermarket where you were the only customer? Or was it the night you traipsed through the peach orchard and realized that you weren’t alone? It’s easy to frighten yourself wherever you are after sundown, but keep in mind that whatever is scaring you is just in your head. Maybe.
