50 Haunting Innovations

From Chilling Ghostography to the World's Spookiest Spots

— October 17, 2011 — Special
It is the season for being spooked out of your shorts, and these haunting innovations floating around are sure to give you goosebumps.

Even when the Halloween holiday is not on the horizon, many individuals are still interested in depictions of disturbing dead spirits that pique curiosity while being simultaneously petrifying. Fashion photography gives chilling twists by adding ghostly effects, gadgets are evolving to detect poltergeist presences, home decor is designed around sketchy shadows and even real estate is rocketing into the haunted territory.

The fascination with phantom finds is disturbing but distracting and will lock down your attention in an alarming way. Beware, if you're easily startled these haunting innovations may cause you to scream like a little ghoul.
