If you guys didn’t know, it’s about time for a vacation! Not sure where to go? Not sure if you prefer the woods or the beach? Not sure if you want to stay in the country or leave the country? No problem! I’m here to help you. The list below reveals the 15 Worst Horror Destinations. With this, you are guaranteed to think twice about your vacation plans, and it may even encourage you to stay home where things are normal and a little less life-threatening.

15. NILBOG – TROLL 2 (1990)
15
Why vacation in a small town secretly inhabited by Goblins that want to eat you?

14. NEW ORLEANS SWAMP – HATCHET (2006)
14
I’m not saying you can’t go to New Orleans…just stay away from the swamps. Particularly, stay away from the haunted swamp tours.

13. CABIN IN THE WOODS…duh – CABIN IN THE WOODS (2012)
13
I’m sure you don’t want to discover the truth behind the cabin in the woods…so just avoid all cabins, period.

12. SLOVAKIA – HOSTEL (2005)
12
It’s ok to meet new people along the way. These encounters may lead to new things and perhaps new friendships. However, if you don’t want to wake up in a dungeon room with a man who drills holes into your chest or legs… bypass these new friendships. I’m not a fan of rap, but Drake said it himself, “No new friends.”

11. WOODSBORO, CALIFORNIA – SCREAM (1996)
111
Just because you know the rules of horror doesn’t mean you should go here. Plus, if you really know the rules, then you would know that the rules are always getting switched up!

10. CAMP ARAWAK – SLEEPAWAY CAMP (1983)
10
This one particularly goes to those parents who want to get rid of the children for the summer, even if it means sending them to camp where a psycho with sinister intentions is on the loose. We all know how this one ends. Young women end up having male genitalia or worse, raped by a hot curling iron. Either way, stay away, and certainly don’t send your children there.

9. WEST VIRGINIA – WRONG TURN (2003)
9
If you get cheated on by your significant other and your friends know, just make sure they don’t suggest you all go to the woods in West Virginia. Why not just take your friend to a bar or club to drink or dance their troubles away?

8. CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE – FRIDAY THE 13TH (1980)
8
Unless you want to be stalked and murdered, I say skip it.

7. RACCOON CITY – RESIDENT EVIL (2002)
7
Don’t even think about visiting a city with a company named ‘Umbrella’ in it or around it… unless you simply like battling flesh-eating creatures, creatures that crawl on the ceilings, or worst, an out of control supercomputer with a little British girl’s voice.

6. COASTAL TOWN OF ANTONIO BAY – THE FOG (1980)
6
Yeah, finishing towns that were built a 100 years ago seems pretty awesome. But what happens when a killer fog emerges, containing dead zombie spirits that seek revenge for their deaths?

5. TEXAS – TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (1974)
5
Yes, THE whole state! You never know when someone with a chain-saw will jump out, gut you like a pig, then eat you like one. Play it safe and avoid the whole state!

4. AN OLD REMOTE CABIN – EVIL DEAD (2013)
4
Again with a cabin in the woods! If you want to help your sister or friend recover from their heroin addiction or worse, musical addiction, don’t do it in a remote cabin in the woods. Have we not learned that there are evil forces out there?

3. BATES MOTEL – PSYCHO (1960)
3
You’d be better sleeping in your car at the side of the road than sleeping in a motel where the least of your worries would be the cockroaches.

2. OVERLOOK HOTEL – THE SHINING (1980)
2
An isolated hotel where evil spirits influence people to do violent things is definitely one to avoid!

1. ISLAND OF MATOOL – ZOMBI 2 (1979)
1
A tropical island always seems nice, huh? Wrong! Especially when there is an epidemic of the undead.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

LONDON – AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON (1981)
11
If something bad happens to you out there, I’m sure none of the locals will believe you. Especially if it involves hairy, bloody werewolves.

BURKITTSVILLE, MARYLAND – THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT (1999)
22
Avoid locations that have legends. Simple.

HADDONFIELD, ILLINOIS – HALLOWEEN (1978)
33
Well…maybe you’ll be ok because we aren’t near Halloween or in the month of October…maybe.

BRAZIL – TURISTAS (2006)
44
Brazil is known for its beauty, especially the beautiful women. If you must go, don’t take drinks from an attractive individual.

AUSTRALIA – WOLF CREEK (2005)
55
It’s actually a dream of mine to go to Australia ,but after seeing this film, I knew my dream to not be brutally murdered outweighed visiting Australia.

You’re probably wondering, what place is left to vacation? Nowhere! So, you might as well stay home and watch horror movies all summer. You’re welcome!

    • EvanDickson

      I didn’t write the article, Zena Dixon did. But thanks

      • J Jett

        oops. NICE ARTICLE ZENA!! :)

    • James Daniel Massey

      Isn’t that from the Orphanage?

      • Matthew

        Yes sir

  • Kyle Porter

    I say the ruins, from “The Ruins” : D

  • David Rawlings

    What, No Elm St?

  • Jarrod Cooper

    What about amity island or amityville?

  • LastCubScout

    I didn’t have a good time in Silent Hill, Perfection NV, or Santa Carla CA either.

  • diapers

    Bad things seem to happen in the antarctic, so I’d steer clear of that region.

  • SaltSlasher

    Not all of these are good. Cities/Places aren’t scary unless it is Slovakia, but those specific places are way more scary. Camp Crystal Lake should be #1, the whole area is dangerous and scary, yeah that island is also, but the Bay and Texas are no where near as bad.

  • OceanSlaughter

    Also, as beautiful as the water may seem, maybe go and swim somewhere else other than lake Placid.

  • thaphantom

    Amity Island wasn’t one?

    What about the Amazon for Cannibal Holocaust? I’m pretty sure no one wants to have that experience… lol

  • ThunderDragoon

    Great list. I’m surprised Springwood, Ohio wasn’t on here, though.

  • Brett Shearer

    What no Elm street? blashpome!

  • Roberto Rojas Balarezo

    just don´t go to silent hill, just saying

  • Christensen

    No Silent Hill? Bye.

  • Michael J. O’Hearn

    Amity Island, or even Amityville!

  • James Daniel Massey

    What about Haunted Hill, California?

  • Melody Cooper

    Cuesta Verde (Poltergeist). Hobb’s End (Mouth of Madness).
