Hood's Timberline Lodge and Ski Bowl, creating heavy snow drifts and near zero visibility on April 11, 2019, on Mt. Hood, Oregon. The exterior of the historic Timberline Lodge became the fictional Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick's horror masterpiece film, "The Shining."

When it comes to horror movies, there are several that take place in scary towns, scary houses, hotels etc. and just seeing those locations would freak someone out. There is a good portion of the population that will gravitate toward those places. This story is for those people. These locations have been made popular by these famous movies and have drawn several fans to them over the years. Now, the one in Massachusetts is actually a location and not a house. Martha's Vineyard is actually the holy ground for "Jaws" fans. The movie was actually filmed in the Vineyard. You can find more horror movie locations by clicking HERE. Why do we want to feel scared in the first place? The Today Show did a story on this recently and their reasoning makes sense. According to the article, "There’s also a hormonal component when it comes to fear and enjoyment. The hormonal reaction we get when we are exposed to a threat or crisis can motivate this love of being scared. The moment we feel threatened, we feel increasingly more strong and powerful physically, and more intuitive emotionally. This charge to our physical and mental state is called an “adrenaline rush,” and as humans we are apparently hard-wired to be drawn to this type of feeling." Regardless of the reason we want to feel scared, taking a trip to any one of these 10 places should be a bucket list event for the biggest Halloween fans this season. There are 10 days left until Halloween, so check out the list and choose wisely.
