No matter what time of year you visit Eastern State Penitentiary, there’s a good chance you’ll encounter some unexplainable phenomena. However, Halloween’s Terror Behind the Walls takes this weirdness to a whole new level.

Fear Is on Lockdown at Eastern State Penitentiary 

There are more than a few national publications that have named Eastern State Penitentiary the most terrifying attraction in the entire country. But the truth is, even when you take away the incredible spectacle of their Halloween theatrics, this ruin is almost more disturbing than ever.

There was a time when Eastern State Penitentiary was the most famous and expensive prison in the world, a place where numerous prisoners were tortured, ravaged, and left to die. As early as the 1940s, guards and inmates began reporting strange, paranormal occurrences.

Since it was shut down and abandoned, this ruin has been visited by a multitude of paranormal investigators. It’s even been featured on national programs such as FOX’s World’s Scariest Places and Syfy’s Ghost Hunters.
