There’s something about psych wards that just give us the creeps. While watching films like House on Haunted Hill, it always shakes us up when we come to the realization that there actually was a time when horrific things like this did happen in psych wards.
The patients became sick of their treatments they’d receive from the doctors and staff in the case of House of Haunted Hill, so in retaliation they slaughtered every single one of them in the most brutal of ways.
Even in this day and age, psych wards can be just as creepy, because sometimes, the people inside are the kind of people we wish would never get out.
There’s a reason behind so many people finding psych ward stories so creepy. The tales some psych ward patients have are often so disturbing and terrifying that one often finds it hard to get out of their head.
These are the kinds of stories that are prone to inducing nightmares. They include bitter nurses, sadistic doctors, and women and men considered so crazy that their crimes are usually unbelievable. You might want to bring your nightlight back out if it is packed away right now, you may need it after reading through some of these stories.
There’s a reason why a lot of old and abandoned insane asylums are converted into haunted houses for the season, and they appear as if they’ve been taken straight out of a horror movie.
It’s very close to Halloween time again and we some insane stories for you. Just when you thought you heard it all, we have quite a few horrific confessions coming right out of the mouths of psych ward workers.
The Possessed Patient
This is the kind of story that can only be true in nightmares. “We had a young lady in our custody with quite a few issues. We’ll call her ‘Jane.’ On Jane’s first night at our facility, staff performing a bed check found Jane in a puddle of blood.
It turns out, Jane had been slicing the skin around her shin with her fingernails and was pulling her skin up her leg, essentially de-gloving her calf. Jane also had a ritual she performed every night before bed.
While in her room, she would walk to every wall and touch them [sic] in a crucifix pattern. After doing this for a few hours, she would sit on her bed and go to sleep. One night, Jane’s pace was frantic. Our night staff observed the entire interaction and reported Jane screaming late into the night.
When one staff member went to check on Jane, she reported Jane standing in the doorway smiling. The staff asked what was wrong, and Jane replied, ‘What makes you think you are speaking to Jane’” (Ranker)?
