Across the river from where one man grew up stands a lonely, dilapidated house. It’s the kind of creepy house that is the star of countless horror films and kidnapping cases (it basically screams “you’re gonna die”). But, be that as it may, this guy finally got the courage to cross the river and enter that house. This is what he found.

The house is across the river from his property. No one knows who owns it.

Someone really needs to post a sign that reads, “Beware: Ghosts and Stuff.”

It’s hard to blame the man for leaving as quickly as he did, but now I want to find the nearest abandoned building and rifle through it, ghosts or no ghosts.
