I’m usually skeptical about the paranormal and don’t like the associations often made between ghosts and asylums. But I do like being scared and I willingly set aside my skepticism around this time every year. I’m not sure how I feel about Scariest Places on Earth though. The episodes I’ve seen were far too overdone and just downright silly. That said, Dixmont State Hospital will be featured on a special airing of Scariest Places on Earth this month. The program will be shown October 28th at 10PM on ABC Family as part of their 13 Nights of Halloween. I’ve never seen this particular episode, so I can’t really say I recommend it. It’s probably worth catching just to see the Kirkbride building though.
