I asked reader to tell me about the scariest house or building you've ever been in. See  a sampling of answers below. For others go here 

*My house is pretty creepy to everyone but me (thank goodness I haven't seen anything for myself). My sister and her friends have seen a girl they thought was me (young with long dark hair) several times walking by my room and to the bathroom by my room. We've lived here for about 6 years and they still see her sometimes....

*My church's old building was spooky at night. When we were there providing child care for functions, we'd hear all sorts of creaks, footsteps & toilets flushing upstairs. Whenever someone would go look there'd be nobody there. Freaky.

*Every Haunted house I've ever been in I ran screaming and often crying. I don't like being chased with chain saws.

*My sister used to live in a haunted house. Lights and music would turn on and off. Objects would move when you left the room. Footsteps when no one was present - things like that. It was very creepy.
