This time of year in the United States many people flock to haunted house exhibits. This is something they do all through the month of October. The haunted houses are set up like a maze to have employees dress up and jump out to scare you. If one wasn't scary enough, people seek out another. These people like to be scared for fun.
My family and I went to one a few years ago. My daughter was scared crazy. She was the perfect person to jump out and scare. As they choose the people who jump, scream or react when the employees try to scare you. We did not finish because the employees did their job right by scaring the crap out of my daughter.
Besides the haunted houses for fun. Ohio is known for having actual haunted houses. People believe there are real ghosts or spirits haunting places. One of the most haunted places talked about in Ohio is at the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield. It was shut down in the 1980's. The place is suppose to have the most violent ghosts or spirits that are still stuck there after dying in a riot. In the 1990's, the Ohio State Reformatory started to be used in music videos, tv shows and films. Such as Ghost Adventures and Shawshank Redemption.
