If you have a chance to get near a haunted house, would you go in?

I would be scared but also curious. I would go in as long as someone was in front of me and someone was in back of me...lol!

I wouldn't be so scared if it was haunted by nice ghosts but not scary ones!

I am interested in the paranormal, psychics, spirits, etc. My sister goes to ghost hunts and really has fun doing that, especially at Halloween time.

I have seen a lot of unexplainable things in my life and most of them are really cool. I feel like I get a lot of signs from my mom, dad, loved ones and even my cats who have gone on to Heaven. My husband and I have both heard our cat meow after he had passed one. We both saw a black streak run out of the house when the door was opened after our little black kitten passed away.

We just moved to our first house on 2-1/2 acres of woods. We know that Indians used to live in this area. Myhusband and I both have heard women talking and I have heard other noises and we have seen things we weren't sure of but nothing seems harmful or scary...it's kind of cool!

So yes I would probably enter a haunted house, but definitely not alone. I do not think I could ever spend the night in one though...just explore a little, listen and look a lot, and get the heck out of there!

My curiosity would definitely take over and I would highly consider it. However, if I was alone at night time I probably wouldn't, but I definitely would be more brave if I had a friend or group of friends with me.

I also know that haunted houses won't actually physically harm you, so there's not too much risk, right? It's only in the movies where people actually get hurt or possessed by ghosts. If that's what you meant by haunted though, never in a million years would I go in. If it's haunted though, as in just rumors and not actual evidence, then sure.

I find those things really interesting to be honest. My friend's house had some spooky stuff going on with things moving in the night and whispering voices. It's cool when you have someone with you, but alone, it's pretty scary. We also went trespassing one time to a few abandoned shacks in the forest which was pretty spooky, but really interesting. So my answer would be yes if I had a friend with me and I was sure I wouldn't get hurt, but no if I was alone and would be likely to be possessed by a ghost of some sort.

I would love to, since I was a kid I love to be adventurous and do daring things. Maybe its an ego thing, I'm not very sure! Once I heard there was an abandoned haunted old villa in a village in the mountains next to my mother's village, I immediately organized a trip to it with my cousin. We visited this villa at midnight to make our adventure more mystic and thrilling. The villa was built from well cut rocks (typical 50-100 years old construction), it was two floors plus a small room at the top. It had a large saloon or hall and it had a small garden with a fountain at the back, which was very eery. Its just like those villas in a haunted movie, we did not hear or see anything yet we felt a strange presence. I am sure its because we imagined how it used to be like and what happened in it and we imagined how the people that used to occupy it lived and what did they experience. The villa was abandoned during the Lebanese civil war and was never occupied or purchased by anyone else since then, people used to avoid it due to its reputation as haunted by ghosts of the family that used to live in it!

Yes, I would. I don't feel there is anything to fear. I believe there are life forces out there, restless because of unfinished business, tragic death, unaware they are dead or they are just mean and want to bother more people. Really I think we are constantly surrounded by these apparitions but most "ghosts" just keep to themselves and whatever it is they do on the other side of life. When people say they are afraid of ghosts I believe they are really saying they fear either death, the unknown or both. There is no point in fearing a possibility so it would be best to embrace the experience.
I have entered haunted fields before where both light and dark spirits were visible to myself and my friends. None of them tried to harm us even though we all felt something malevolent was present. It was an interesting experience and the air felt electrified. I would certainly go into a building I knew to be haunted to see if it feels the same.

Yes, I would definitely go into a haunted house if given the chance. I would do so reluctantly though because I am the biggest wuss in the world when it comes to the paranormal. I love all the shows on television where they go into Haunted Houses.

I want to try it myself one day. I think it would be fun. I would make sure that I had someone with me. I would never go into a haunted house on my own. That would be fat too scary. I would also bring some sort of flash light because the pitch dark is really scary as well.

It would be very cool to go in a haunted house because you can get proof of life after death. That's the big question that everyone wants to know. Are ghosts real? I think my curiosity is more important than my fear which is why I would knowingly go into a haunted house. I wanna know what happens when we die.

Hi There,
First,you must be able to meet the consequences!You cannot just enter a haunted house (if you are really sure that it is haunted) and expect that everyone will be happy with your intervention!
I would rather advice no one to enter a haunted house only because they are curious,because it might be quite dangerous for them.
You can only enter it:
1.By mistake,if you don't know that it is haunted.
2.If you are investigating the paranormal,and you are trying to help the occupants.
3.If you are also trying to help the spirits entrapped there.
You MUST NEVER ENTER a haunted house ONLY to satisfy your curiosity.Please mind that the spirits there also once were human like you,with the difference that they are now dead.Respect them too,as you respect other humans.
Enter it ONLY if you intend TO HELP!

I would love to go into a house that was haunted. I worked at the flamingo hotel on the strip and every now and again we would get a ghost story frm a guest saying they saw Bugsy in the hall, in their room or out at the pool. As the mager I had to listen to their stories. Some where so crazy you just knew they where making it up while others made you real wonder what it could have been.

My oldest son and I at one time where going to apply for the ghost hunters here in town. We wanted to try and see if hautings really happened. How else to see it than be right in middle of it. So yes I would go inside a hanted house.

I've been able to sense "ghosts" since I was very young and I often enter buildings, especially old ones, where ghosts are present. Sometimes it takes me completely by surprise and other times I've known before hand that the building is supposed to be haunted but it's never really stopped me. Occasionally I go in haunted places with the intention of seeing if I can sense anything but mainly I just ignore them and carry on a normal.

Ghosts, or whatever you want to call them, don't very often scare me and there have only been a few occasions when I have been scared by something paranormal.

I know people who seek out that kind of thing and enjoy the rush of the experience however for me it is nothing I aspire to do.

I will admit I do on occasion like to watch television shows that are about entering into known haunted locations but that as far as it goes for me.

If i ever entered into a haunted house and heard a spooky whisper saying "get out" I'd say okay and out the door I'd go while the more adventures type would say, "did you hear that, lets check it out."

Thanks for asking.

YES! I have always had a fascination with the paranormal. Entering a haunted location should be approached with extreme caution! Preparedness is most important...research your locations history. Negative events is a recipe for evil that can attach to you! If your a skeptic visit a non-negative haunted location & bring video/still cameras, voice recorder, EMF detector (optional) & an open mind. Your beliefs will change. Remember that spirits were people just like us...their body is gone but their soul remains.

Of course! Who wouldn't want to go into a haunted house, you never know what you may learn or find out by being somewhere where it is thought that the paranormal exists. Contrary to popular belief it is not commonplace to find haunted homes or places in every neighborhood or town. I live close to Gettysburg, Pa where it seems like everyone thinks you can just walk a few steps and run into a spirit, it doesn't work that way. So if an opportunity came along I would absolutely go.

Hope this helps!

I would be in there for sure! I believe in ghosts and that sort of stuff and would be curious to see if it really was haunted. Don't think my partner would come so i would have to go it alone. I have read up about quite a few over the internet and because i haven't actually seen them i don't know whether to believe they really are haunted.

I have had a few wierd things happen around my house, but i wouldnt call it haunted. But i would definitely be interested in seeing a real one.

It would really depend on how it was haunted, meaning, what the history of it was. I am definitely a believer in paranormal activity, and I love watching paranormal shows on television, but I am always way more spooked than I expect to be whenever I am confronted (by choice or not, meaning, if I intentionally go ghost hunting, or if an experience just happens spontaneously) a potentially paranormal situation.

I would knowingly enter a haunted house but only if it was not a bad haunting. Going into a house were bad things happen would not be a good idea in my opinion. If nothing bad was happening to people that went into the house I would want to check it out. Hopefully I would see some ghost activity.

Being surprised from ghost could give a person a heart attack. So I would want to know what to expect.

I would only enter a haunted house with people that I am comfortable with and absolutely trust. You would not catch me snooping around somewhere alone! I think it would be an interesting and exciting experience and of course, we can all scare ourselves silly imagining that we hear or see things. I've hung out around an old abandoned hotel that was supposedly haunted years ago and that was pretty cool.

My husband and I have actually debated this question quite often. He is very supersticious and believes in ghosts and haunted houses. On the other hand, I am not particularly supersticious and don't really believe very many ghost stories.

That being said, I would have no problem knowingly entering a haunted house. He would probably also go in, but he would be hoping to see something.

I would definitely enter a haunted house, firstly because i am an incredibly curious person, so any mysterious looking house would get me excited, and secondly because i don't really believe in ghosts or the concept of a haunted house then i don't see why i would be as scared as you or someone who does believe that dead people are floating around moving doors etc.

i would go into a house that was considered haunted. I know I would be on the cautious side but the intrig of it would get me into the front door. I would want to go there with someone, and tour the house together to see if either one of us witness something. I would go to a haunted house, and hopefully they are not angry ghosts, if there were any.

I do not believe in ghosts so I would definately enter it, just to see what is the fuss about.

Maybe something (or someone) could finally then convince me that ghosts exists. I think most of the time the ghost seeings are just people's imagination running wild, so it would take some proper ghost activity to really convince me.

I absolutely would enter a haunted house knowing it. I love things scary and spooky. Actually a few years a ago my friends and I went into a closed down school known as the Ladd School. Supposedly it was haunted. We didn't encounter anything when we went but that didn't deter us. Ill be ghost hunting as long as i can.

Would I knowingly enter a "haunted" house? That would be impossible, as there's no such thing as a haunted house.

Would I knowingly enter a house people CLAIM is haunted? Sure, if only out of curiosity, to see what all the fuss is about.

Yes, I would. About nine years ago, my husband and I went up to the coast to a restaurant that was supposed to be haunted. While we ate there, it did not seem haunted to me, at all. Of course, there were about 60 to 80 people there at the time.

I would absolutely enter, I do not fear anything besides the creator

Not without an experienced ghost buster.
