ALCATRAZ, SAN FRANCISCO
Few structures in this world are as infamous as Alcatraz! Prisons are often a haven for restless spirits, and Alcatraz is no different. This former high-security prison is probably even more likely to be haunted, given what the conditions were like when it was in operation coupled with the dangerous criminals who were housed within its walls.
The entire building is soaked in fear, regret, anger, pain, and death – the perfect recipe for restless souls and much darker entities!
The prison is like a breeding ground for the paranormal. One of the most feared presences on the island is known simply as ‘The Thing.’ This entity is said to have red glowing eyes, and it has been seen not only by visitors today but by prisoners and staff when Alcatraz was in operation.
Other common reports detail disembodied voices, sobbing, screams, banging of cell doors, and putrid smells, which some say indicate a demonic presence. Visitors have experienced being touched, feeling cold spots, and even having emotional outbursts of either sadness or anger.
Some have even said that they encounter apparitions who spoke to them of abuse at the hands of guards and other inmates!
