We've been combing the internet and other mediums for weird haunted LA things. And quite frankly, we've come up a bit short. Maybe it's the enormous amount of sun we get here. Maybe it's that celebrity is a sort of a cheesey fame that doesn't lend itself to the goose flesh and various other willies that come with a good ghost stories. Seeing Marilyn Monroe in a mirror, the notion of club kids encountering unusually cold patches seems a little warm and fuzzy.

Really good ghost stories have a history to them, an element of the unexplained that -- whether real or not -- make you feel a little scared. There's nothing like a good, midwestern story that took place two hundred years ago.
