Alleged to bring bad luck, poverty, illness or even death, cursed objects have always attracted people who enjoy the spooky side of life. Many things have been reported to be possessed by evil spirits, ghosts, paranormal beings and other supernatural entities and the owners of these objects have often claimed to have seen frightful sights and experience creepy things. In fact, many owners of these cursed objects have even died under very bizarre circumstances. What are some of these objects you should definitely avoid owning? Here are 25 Creepy Cursed Objects That Actually Exist.
Also known as the Otzi, the Iceman is a well-preserved natural mummy of a man who lived around 3300 BC. The Iceman was discovered by two German hikers in the Otzal Alps on the border between Austria and Italy in September 1991. Reportedly cursed, the mummy is believed to have caused deaths of at least seven people who were somehow associated with it. Some of these people allegedly died under very bizarre circumstances.
Robert the Doll
Robert the Doll is a life-like, straw-filled doll that was once given to a boy named Robert Otto by his fired Haitian nanny. The doll soon became Robert’s loyal companion; he even named it after himself. However, people in the house soon began noticing sings of the doll’s evil nature. The family would often hear and see paranormal things such as the boy having conversations with himself in two entirely different voices, furniture in his room getting overturned on its own etc. The cursed doll was then moved to the attic, but it continued to bring misfortunes upon Robert and his family, even after he grew up and got married.
Surrey Ghost Car
Crashes are common on the A3 Highway in England, so it looked like a routine matter when police in Surrey received calls that a car had veered off the A3 with its headlights blazing. But when officers went to investigate, they found no signs of the reported vehicle. However, a further search revealed chilling results. Just 60 ft from the reported ‘crash scene’ and buried in twisted undergrowth was the remains of a wrecked car containing a decomposing body of a young man, who, as the police estimated, had crashed there 5 months earlier. Therefore, what the witnesses reported, might have been a ghostly apparition of the original car.
Cursed Phone Number
Technically, a phone number is not a physical object but obviously, it can be still cursed so we included this item in our list. We are talking about a particular Bulgarian phone number +359 888 888 888. The number was in use for just 10 years, during which it was successively assigned to 3 people. All of the owners of this number died shortly thereafter. The first owner died of cancer, while the other two were both gunned down. No wonder the Bulgarian mobile phone company decided to suspend this number.
