a good scare? If the same old haunted houses and rehashed slasher movies have
you rolling your eyes, PETA has 10 scary spots guaranteed to make you scream
like Jamie Lee Curtis. Let’s start our
virtual fright fest:

A factory-farm barn

who has ever seen a horror flick knows that you never go into the barn. Good things do not happen there, unless you
consider being mutilated
a good thing. Anyway,
didn’t we learn anything about eating meat from Contagion

Backstage at Ringling Bros.

sooner spend a year trapped in Rihanna’s warped “Disturbia” world than try to dodge the
whips and chains in Ringling’s house of horrors.

The University of Wisconsin–Madison 

bizarre and deadly experiments on cats that are going on behind closed doors at
this school are like something out of Dr. Frankenstein’s laboratory. But even
Mary Shelley couldn’t have dreamed up “science” this twisted.

A McDonald’s chicken supplier’s slaughterhouse 

there anything creepier than a clown? How about a clown with shackles, an
electrified water bath, and a knife aimed at your throat?

The end of a chain in a backyard 

the iconic opening sequence in Saw in which two men are
chained up in a restroom? They didn’t last any time at all before one of them
sawed off his own leg to get free. Just sayin’.

An Australian sheep farm 

Jason Voorhees might be a
knife-wielding maniac, but he’s got nothing on Australian sheep farmers. Apparently,
if they call it “mulesing,” they can carve up their
victims alive. (Shiver!)

An ice floe in Newfoundland, Canada 

with Paramount’s money, DreamWorks’ special effects, and all the fake blood in
Hollywood, Wes Craven
couldn’t create a
gorier scene than the Canadian seal slaughter.

Inside a battery cage 

you find that the worst part of haunted houses is the beginning, when your
whole group is smashed into that dark, tiny room before you start the tour? If
you get claustrophobic just thinking about it, imagine if that dark, tiny room
lasted for two years. It’s getting hard to breathe …

A cow slaughterhouse 

who have seen The Texas Chainsaw Massacre probably still shudder
when they think about Leatherface. But even at his chainsaw-slinging worst, the
skin-wearing psycho isn’t as frightening as the slicing and dicing that goes on
inside a slaughterhouse where cows are killed for their flesh and skin.

10.  The mean streets
of New York City

horses made to pull carriages through New York’s noisy, congested streets,
every car seems like Christine—except Stephen King‘s horror flicks only last
two hours, not nine hours a day, seven days a week.
