If the name of this English hospital isn’t enough to convince you of its creepiness consider the fact that it’s not really a hospital at all. It’s actually an insane asylum, or rather it was an insane asylum before being abandoned several year ago.
This town in Southern Brazil holds an interesting distinction – it is the twin capital of the world. In fact, it’s twin birth rate is 18 times higher than the world average. Why? Well according to the locals it was after chief Nazi physician Mengele, who fled to the village after World War II, that the births started happening. Oddly enough Mengele was known to have a strange fascination with twins. Modern scientists, however, propose that it is most likely due to toxic waste or inbreeding. Either way, it’s pretty creepy.

Bird Suicide Grounds of Jatinga
The small village of Jatinga in northern India seems like any other quiet, isolated village in the world except for one thing…every year around the months of September and October hundreds of birds dive to their deaths within its city limits. To make things even stranger the incidents only happen in the evening between 7pm and 10pm across a roughly mile long strip of land. The village has even taken steps to capitalize on the phenomenon by setting up “bird watching tours” around area.
It’s not just the dense shrubbery that makes this place so creepy. It’s all the dead bodies. Located at the base of Mt Fuji, ever since the 1950s the Japanese have been committing suicided here in droves. In fact, its so bad that there are now signs scattered throughout the woods with sayings such as “life is precious” and “think of your family”.
